Ok, so this movie was weird but kept you guessing on what would happen next.
An older woman who suffered from pure craziness and the fact that she was lonely decided to plant handbags on a train hoping someone would find it and return it to the address left on her driver’s license.
The main victim/character of this story didn’t think much of it and began hanging out with her and considering her to be a friend. Her roommate thought she was being naive and needed to be careful.
Well of course the friend was right because one day while over the older woman’s house to eat dinner she spotted behind a cabinet a row full of handbags and they were all exactly the same with her driver’s license planted inside and numbers on stickies to the back of them.
Needless to say she wanted nothing more to do with her and tried to break it off but the older woman was hell bent on keeping her in her life.
She stalked her, showed up at her job, spit out chewing gum in the girls hair. That would have been the last straw for me!
Calling the cops didn’t work. In fact the police officer said if you ignore her she will leave you alone. Eye Roll!!
The girl went missing and was drugged and locked in a room that another woman stayed who was also captured by this older woman.
Luckily someone had a brain, the girls roommate. Because the detective the father hired didn’t last 5 minutes before he was shot after snooping around and attempting to save the girl.
The roommate found her way to the older woman’s place because she found the handbag she planted and spiked her drink.
After this ending I was quite relieved because some of the dumb missteps that happened in this movie had us both screaming at the t.v.
Based on a true story. A woman book author wrote a story about a fictional character who’s life was based on her actual life events.
She decided to have her sister-in-law pretend to be the male character of the book, J.T. Leroy. This was helping the author create fan fare, new circles of friends with celebrities and a way to promote her band she had with her husband.
Unfortunately, she picked the wrong woman to be J.T. The wigs were never convincing when she wore them in public and in fact they were women wigs with long tresses.
And worst of all, an actress set to play the mother of J.T. in a movie had a liking for Kristen Stewart who played J.T. But turns out she really didn’t like her not to mention she realized J.T. was actually a girl when she tried to hook up with her, but all she wanted was rights to the movie.
J.T. couldn’t manage to keep her emotions out of it, her speaking voice was inconsistent with how the author spoke over the phone as J.T., and J.T. didn’t show a consistent look in public revealing him to be a woman, a fraud.
The author and the J.T. character eventually got caught as people saw her in public and put the pictures together.
This encouraged the author to come out and tell her story as J.T. instead of hiding behind someone else.
In the end Kristen Stewart, who played J.T. moved to NY to become a writer and the book author regained her following. Funny quote in movie was the author told Kristen Stewart, just because you played a writer doesn’t mean you are one. I suppose she is right although earlier in the movie she encouraged her to step out her comfort zone and to be different.
This was a bit of an emotional rollercoaster but in a good way.
First off, two siblings, brother and sister grew up in a wrestling family, the WWE kind. The parents were not famous but they were avid partakers in the sport. So much so, they started their own small wresting company locally in Norwich, England.
It was both the siblings dream, especially the brother to be a professional wrestler for WWE. Unfortunately, during a try out, his kind intention to ensure his sister looked great while he took some of the hits left him with a rejection and his dreams shattered.
He tried endlessly to resubmit tapes in hopes to be considered until he was given a final no. All while he had a new born and girlfriend he was barely paying attention to.
His sister was of course sad he didn’t get picked and in fact felt challenged with continuing in the training program she left and returned home. But with the advice of her brother and parents she returned to the training program and beat out everyone to be the youngest champion.
The whole time we were rooting for her to win, make her family proud and most of all for her brother to get out of his slump.
In the end they all did and they were all happy for the sister/daughter to do well. In fact they were making handmade dolls and posters to sell locally. of her to raise income.
This is based on a true story. Well worth the watch if you haven’t. There were some funny moments but mainly a movie about an underdog coming out on top.
Did you see John Wick? I feel like it strayed a tad from it original direction. I mean Keanu ended up stranded in a desert passed out for crying out loud.
Honestly, I’m not sure what to think of this movie.
I like this movie series, in fact I recall we saw the first two as a rental and thought it was funny and really good. This time we saw it at the movie theater, some movies make a difference with how you see it and I don’t know it was almost a snoozer.
It took so many bullets to kill each enemy; not a ton of lines being spoken and it was all just non-stop action fighting.
On one hand that was good but I wanted to hear more from Keanu. We realized after the fact we should have rewatched the first 2 movies to better understand what was to take place in the 3rd installment.
It’s fun to look forward to a series or movie you have been longing for, I just wouldn’t give this movie the A rating it has now.
If you ever heard of Level 16 it’s quite weird. I usually can solve a movie pretty quickly. I came close but not quite.
It’s a strange and mysterious thriller so to speak that left me wondering where does the imagination generate from for many film producers.
There’s a group of kids maybe 15 and above who are told to recite rules they must follow. If the rules aren’t followed they are deemed unclean and will be punished by being skinned. Continue reading “Movie Review – Level 16”
Ever wondered what it’s like to be stranded in the Arctic, well this movie highlights the peril of the unknown during cold extremity.
I enjoyed watching this and only knew of this movie coming out on DVD, didn’t see it listed in the movie theaters.
The movie starts with a male actor who I’m assuming experienced strong winds with snowfalls, crashed on a mountain. What looked to be no chance in sight of him finding rescue showed him in the beginning scene spelling S.O.S. in deep snow.
He had some equipment in his helicopter he would dig through each day, one of them was a box to transmit a radio signal for rescue. I’m surprised he also managed to catch fish.
He did find a helicopter that was out searching. I suspect as I just realized while writing this the look and color of his plane was similar to the rescue crew.
Sadly as they flew too close to the strandee, due to high winds they crashed. There were two onboard the helicopter leaving 1 woman semi-alive. She suffered a gash on her stomach.
The lead actor spent the entire movie keeping them alive and warm as he could. She never made a sound until the absolute worst time. For a moment he thought she was dead and as he walked away leaving her to die in a corner he fell into a deep hole underneath. He was able to get out after resetting his broken leg.
He spent much time trying to pull her up a hill on a sleigh bed when on 2 to 3 tries it became so heavy it fell back to the bottom. He decided to give it up and found a hole for them to stay when a Polar Bear heard her make a noise, the one time she made a noise throughout the entire movie. The Polar Bear was relentless and was close to digging his way into the cave of the strandees. The male actor lit one of those rescue lighters and scared the Polar Bear away.
They finally made it to the top of the mountain and nearly missed their chance of rescue for being too far way from the rescuers purview.
Wow I was quite impressed with this one! I loved wonder woman but for this marvel superhero I wasn’t sure because of the actress chosen but it was quite good.
The angle they used for this story was interesting because Captain Marvel was a trained fighter pilot who then crashed on land from an attack and killing her instructor who was in the back passenger seat. While protecting the cosmic cube from being stolen – the cube exploded onto her and made her powerful. Continue reading “Review: Captain Marvel”
Usually any movie with Samuel Jackson, I’m like oooh I have to watch it. Well, I didn’t learn until after the 2nd attempt of watching this movie it had received a 37% on rotten tomatoes with other sites’ rating ranging a bit higher.
Well, this movie was a snoozer and a little odd because there’s 3 men who are supposed to be superheroes yet anything spectacular shown was not superhero like. Meaning I didn’t see any super powers.
I realize two other movies/pre-quals came before this and as I remember they were snoozers too.
If you’re a comic book enthusiast maybe you get this movie. I like comics and the Marvel and DC movies, just not this one.
Samuel didn’t have a super power just has fragile bones, Bruce Willis is scared of water and the other guy has so many personalities it’s a bit ridiculous. In the end after a woman captured them all I believe to run test – they each escaped because they all had a vengeance against one another and died in the end. Hopefully this movie series will end with it too.
