Scream Queens – The TV Show

Scream-Queens-01So last night I turned on my PVR and noticed I missed the new show Scream Queens on City TV last night. So I got comfortable and knew that 2 hours of a TV show is not my cup of tea, but I figured they aired it that way on TV I’ll watch it. I absolutely loved the first episode especially the 1995 throwback. I am also a fan of the cast: Emma Roberts, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer and Jamie Lee Curtis. The other actors are fairly new to me, but I’m sure they’ll grow on me.

I have to say I’m a little disappointed in the show, knowing it’s produced by the same guy (Ryan Murphy) that did American Horror Story I guess I had high hopes for this show. This series is basically like a horror version of Gossip Girls. Now I do love me some Gossip Girl, but I’m not sure if this will be as everlasting. Let’s hope Episode 3 doesn’t disappoint. Although I’m glad I got to fast forward through commercials otherwise I might of stopped watching episode 2 half way.

From a Chick’s Perspective 3/5. – The first episode was amazing, the second was meh. I’m sure the series will stick around cause teens will love this.

The Equalizer – Movie Review

The_Equalizer_posterThe Equalizer

I figured I’d write something while I’m watching the movie. If you don’t like violence, blood and gore this movie AIN’T for you. I’m almost an hour into it and I literally had to pause it cause I was so grossed out. It’s pretty graphic, but so far it’s a great movie!

After the movie:

Overall it was a great movie. Pretty gory and honestly Denzel scared the shit out of me. This movie is like meeting a really nice guy and then knowing he is a psychotic killer (but a good killer), but STILL a killer. Thinking he did all this killing for a hooker he hardly knew imagine what he’d do for his wife if he had one LOL. Jesus take the wheel.

From a Chick’s Perspective Overall this movie is a 3.5/5. I probably would never watch it again, but it was a good movie. I would recommend seeing it just because it was so messed up. I love gory, horror, thriller movies and this takes the cake. I wasn’t expecting it to be that gory.

Robert McCall: [to Slavi] That girl, Alana… She’s gonna go on living. You… You’re gonna bleed out all over this funky floor… All over 9,800 dollars.

So messed up.

Now You See Me – Movie Review

now_you_see_me_xlgNOW YOU SEE ME

I had NO idea what this movie was about when I started watching it. All I know that it was the biggest one to promote at work so I figured why the hell not I’ll watch it and see why it’s so “important.” I didn’t watch the trailer and I had no idea what actors were in this movie besides looking at the promo pic which included: Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher and Dave Franco. Can I just say randomly that I had no idea that Dave Franco is James Franco’s brother. Let me explain, I had no idea what this actors name was I just saw his face on the promo pic. Thank you IMDB for this information. The other reason I figured out they were brothers right before making this post was I watched James Franco’s Roast last night and Jeffrey Ross mentioned Dave Franco and I was like NO WAY! Oh well. Also Jeffrey Ross is hilarious, but honey please loose the braids. 

SO when I realized this movie was about magic I started grunting like honestly why am I watching this shit. An hour in I was intrigued and annoyed but overall I actually enjoyed it. The ending pissed me off even though I was caught off guard, but come on they could of came up with someone a little more mind blowing. Why does every movie have to be “OH MY GOD IT WAS HIM ALL ALONG.” Like no shit sherlock. I hope that didn’t spoil anything…

Love Isla Fisher! She is adorable and I’m glad there was at least one female role in this emasculating movie.  Besides her Jesse’s character was quite pompous and irritating so every time he opened his mouth I just kept reminding myself of how good he was in The Social Network. And I LOVE Woody Harrelson! I don’t care! He was great in this movie! Kudos to him for picking a great role! This cast was awesome! THE HULK was in it!  Mark Ruffalo! I’ve pretty much only seen him in The Hulk and that Blindness movie, but I have nothing bad to say. Also, Michael Caine! Batman’s Butler! LOVE him. Oh and I kinda have a girl crush on Mélanie Laurent she is adorbs!

From a Chick’s Perspective I give this movie a 4/5. I definitely won’t watch it again, but I will recommend friends to see it. I think I enjoyed it more not knowing the storyline or who was in it. Hello?!?! If I knew Morgan Freeman was in this movie I would of seen it in Theaters! Damn I need to pay more attention to movie releases.

Merritt Osbourne:   Look into my eyes.  Now, sleep!  Just hang out there a sec.  I’m picturing beach, cocktails, Florida?
Husband:   Look, it was a business trip.
Merritt Osbourne:   Maybe the oldest business…
Husband:   I…
Merritt Osbourne:   You’re thinking of a woman’s name.  A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J… J.  Jean, Jane, Janet!  Who, who is Janet?
Wife:   My sister
Merritt Osbourne:   Your sister
Husband:   Nooo
Merritt Osbourne:   You weren’t away on business!  You were away on Janet!  Okay now she’s gonna get upset.  Let’s move over here.  You want this to go away?
Husband:   Yes
Merritt Osbourne:   Okay, now just pull out your wallet.  Does uh $200 seem fair?  Okay… And sleep!  Now when I snap my fingers, you won’t remember any of this.  And you, every time you even see or think of Janet, you’re going to picture me naked and that’s not a pretty sight.
Husband:   Yeah
I absolutely loved this part.

The Call – Movie Review

thecalljpgTHE CALL

Obviously I watched this because Halle Berry is one of the hottest women in the world. Honestly she is 40 and pregnant and looks 25. PLEASE GOD GIVE ME HERE GENES! Anyways I actually didn’t mind the movie except for one thing… or one person I should say: Abigail Breslin. She is super cute but good god I just wanted to punch her in the face during her “stuck in the trunk” car scene. I understand she didn’t write the script but damn girl get some balls and ask for your character to at least get her shit together. So annoying.

So overall it was a good movie. The ending was stupid as hell which didn’t surprise me. ***SPOILER*** Who the hell doesn’t want to at least beat the shit out of their killer before letting him suffer a slow and painful death. If it was me I would definitely of tortured the shit out of him before CONFIRMING his death. I swear to god if there is a part two I am NOT watching it cause the bitches should have killed him.***END SPOILER**

I always wondered how 911 operators handled their jobs. It has to be very stressful and I respect all those people who answer the phone and are patient with people screaming and crying. I would not be able to handle that job at all.And what 911 operator goes after a CHILD MOLESTER to save a kid she doesn’t even know. Just because you got another kid killed (which wasn’t really her fault, seriously you don’t call a house back when an intruder breaks in, but then again that dumb kid shouldn’t have answered the phone). And in the end the 911 operator saves her? And she doesn’t even call the cops when she finds a secret underground entrance? LIKE WTF?

 

From a Chick’s Perspective I give this movie a 3/5. Would I watch it again? Hell no. Would I recommend it? Sure if you want to waste almost 2 hours of your  life. But if you’re a Halle Berry lover then just watch it for that reason alone.

Jordan: “911, where is your emergency?”
Leah: “A man is trying to break into my house. I am all alone.”
Jordan: “Okay, sweetheart, calm down.”
Leah: “My parents are out at a movie. I can’t reach them.”
Jordan: “I understand that, sweetheart.”
Leah: “Leah, Leah Templeton. Oh god, he broke the window. He’s coming in the back.”
Jordan: “Okay, Leah, listen to me. Find a room and lock yourself in it right now.”
Leah: “Okay”
Jordan: “Leah? Leah?”
Leah:: “I’m upstairs in my room but the door, it won’t lock. He’s in my house. He went back downstairs.”

[Call disconnects and Jordan calls back]
Jordan: “Leah? Leah? Leah, stay quiet, okay? Don’t speak. The officers are going to be there any second.”
Leah:
 “I think he heard the phone ring.” [screams]
[Call disconnects]

… Stupid

The Purge – Movie Review

thepurgeTHE PURGE

This movie actually made me laugh. I thought it was supposed to be scary??  The best part/actor was Lena Headey. THANK GOD for her in this movie otherwise it would have been completely awful. My favourite scene? The end of course at the dinner table. I won’t spoil it because I’m sure people will actually want to see this movie. Would I recommend it? Nope. Why? Seriously it’s a yearly purge for American’s to “cleanse their souls” and murder without any consequences. Sorry, but I am not one for that type of Fiction. This story would never happen in real life and honestly what’s the point of the face masks? That must suck being an actor and getting to be a murderer in a big blockbuster movie and then finding out you have to wear a mask the whole time. BULL-POO. The masked characters were not scary they were more annoying than anything. The deaths were boring and you pretty much knew what was going to happen the whole time. Yes there were some surprises but to be honest I didn’t care which way this movie was going to go.

***SPOILER***
Can I just say thank god a black character actually survived. This NEVER happens. AND a BIG question I have is why the hell did they even make that character black? Did they decided they just needed to add some colour to this movie so all races were included? Then they decided YES let’s let him LIVE! People will enjoy that. Well I didn’t enjoy it. You should have made it some random old homeless man (who actually looks homeless) instead of some young semi attractive black man who really didn’t need help in the first place. I am BITTER today!
***SPOILER END***

From a Chick’s Perspective I give this movie a 2.5/5. It doesn’t even deserve a 3. I actually was being generous. I’m sure a lot of people will enjoy this movie (like my boyfriend) but seriously If i’m going to ready myself for a horror it better be good. Waste of time.

James:   Tonight allows people a release for all the hatred and violence that they keep up inside them.
Charlie:   Why don’t you guys kill someone tonight?
James:   Because we don’t feel the need to, Charlie.
Mary:   Just remember all the good the purge does.
James:   We can afford protection so we’ll be fine just like always, okay?”
 
“We can afford protection”?!? So the rich people are gonna be alright… yet they still got into your house. Dummies.
