  What did I watch last night you say? Well since there was nothing new to watch, I believe I watched the Travel Channel, which featured NYC. There appears to be many interesting things to do there like taking a boat out to see the Statue of Liberty. They have a nice looking baseball stadium, but I'm not sure how good their baseball team is, especially when they hit home runs with sharks instead of baseballs. They have a lot of ways to travel around the city. There is the subway, taxi drivers who apparently follow you around with spare rope, and you can even rent bikes. Maybe I will visit there one day. What? Wrong channel? Wrong show?   Well maybe it was the Weather Channel? They started off showing the potential for bad weather, and then went into panic forecasting. First it was a waterspout, then a tornado. If one tornado wasn't bad enough, a second and later third one showed up. I would have thought the Weather Channel would be more informed, but they kept comi

My Thoughts on True Blood Season 7 Episode 6

  Praise Lilith! Praise Billith! Praise whomever you want! Holy Werepanther, there's a cure! What are you waiting for? We have vamps to cure! Start mass production right now! Oh thank you Sarah! Wait Sarah! Does that mean we can't kill her now? And where did she go? While I get over that sad fact, here are my thoughts on episode 6, "Karma"   Mayor of Crazy: Time for a divorce! I knew she wasn't for you. Oh and it's going be hard keeping the kids with the whole shifting thing... unless they shift too which would be awesome!   Nicole: Still don't like her!   Wade: Just ignored what Jason had to say! Sleeping with your step-sister-fairy! Couldn't resist huh?   Adilyn: And here I thought she decided to be a good little fairy. Boy is it going to be fun when she pops out 5-6 little fairies like her mom did! It’s things like this that make me sad there won’t be another season.   Rocky: Who thought he would be the sensible one after all?


In the wake of a disaster that changed the world, the growing and genetically evolving apes find themselves at a critical point with the human race. Starring: Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, and Andy Serkis Directed by: Matt Reeves Written by: Mark Bomback, Rick Jaffa, and Amanda Silver   Fans have had plenty of gripes with remakes over the years, but there weren't many that had bad things to say about "Rise of the Planet of the Apes." It's a fantastic remake filled with plenty of its own originality. It tops the previous attempt at a remake by light years, but also sets the bar extremely high for any sequels to follow. Enter "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes," the sequel that tries to reach this bar while conquering many challenges on way.    One of those challenges is creating memorable scenes, which it does right off the bat. It opens with an amazing scene of the apes swarming the forest before hunting down their next meal. Not all g

My Thoughts on True Blood Season 7 Episode 5

  So after several episodes of fighting off the sick vamps everyone seemed to exhale, and take a needed break. There was time to say goodbyes, while still looking forward to the future. That is for those that have a future, and didn't just screw it up. There wasn't much action, but it was certainly a night for change. Here are my thoughts on episode 5, "Lost Cause"   Jackson: Let’s start this off with another goodbye to your son. I thought he was good for Sookie, and a lot of women watching thought he was good for them!   Rev.: Sleeping on the job! Don't you know people get hurt when you do that!   Tara's mom: Crazy! Crazy! Crazy! She needs to go to Michael Myers School! She's still not getting any sympathy from me.   Willa: Got stabbed but what's new? Oh yea, she's free to do what she wants now. Not like she wasn't already doing that.   Sam: Nice save, but I wouldn't have minded if those vamps put an end to Tara's

My Thoughts on True Blood Season 7 Episode 4

  That's right, no more bottles this week! I can't take it anymore. The episodes are depressing enough without another reminder that's it's over. Besides the continuing onslaught of depressing moments, we got a typical True Blood action scene, and got to see some old faces again. Some I'm happy to see, and others I'm glad they're gone. So here are my thoughts on episode 4, "Sick of Goodbyes."   Pay phone: Yes, that was a pay phone that Sookie was using for those who don't know.   Alcide's father: Sorry for your loss.   Hoyt: I should have mentioned it last week, but I knew we would be seeing him again. Never been a huge fan of his, and I can't say I'm sorry for his loss.   Arlene's children: I don't remember them being so grown up. Shows how much we get to see them.   Holly: Proved to be useless again if it weren't for Sookie.   Andy: Might have been even more useless than her in this episode.   


Starring: Jack Norman, Paul Arnone, Christy Faulker, and Nikki McGlossen Written and directed by: Jack Norman and Brandon Prewitt   Fan made movies based on horror icons like Jason, Freddy, and Michael are usually fun, and "Friday the 13th: The Curse of Jason" is just that. The first thing that stands out is the amount of carnage that takes place. Jason kills, and kills, and kills. It's almost like watching one of those highlight films of his best kills. As quickly as they introduce characters, those characters meet their maker.   The audience gets to see Jason go from the hood to the famous mask. There is a mix of original scenes along with scenes similar to those in the franchise. This brings fans back to some of their favorite moments, while enjoying some new creative scenes. There is a memorable and hilarious scene between Jason, and a drunken camper. Of course it doesn’t end well for the camper! Revisit the Friday the 13th franchise today by watc

My Thoughts on True Blood Season 7 Episode 3

   It looks like every week they will be posting these pics with the bottles reminding us of how many episodes remain. What a depressing way to kick off the episode each week! They kind of make me want to sing, "10 bottles of Tru Blood on the wall, 10 bottles of Tru Blood. Take one down..." So before I finish my song, here are my thoughts on episode 3, "Fire in the Hole."   Sarah: Should be dead! Looks like she will be hunted down one-way or the other… One season too late! Sylvie: Just another girl that Eric couldn't save. Eric: Let's go man! I mean vampire! Get up and kill Sarah already!   Pam: So smart. Just when you thought she was going to walk away. Not only smart, but winner for my favorite line of the night again when she said, "I'm as big a fan of the French vagina as you are."   Nan: Now there is a face I didn't think we would see again. We might see a few more before it's over. Ah, how I would so like to s


A young couple works to survive on the streets after their car breaks down right as the annual purge commences. Starring: Frank Grillo, Kiele Sanchez, and Zach Gilford Written and directed by: James DeMonaco   12 hours to commit all the murder, and mayhem you want! Just imagine all of the chaos that could be created! It was such a great premise for "The Purge," but it ended up being more of a back-story for another home invasion movie. Audiences could only hope they would make a series of improvements in “The Purge: Anarchy.”   Well audiences get improvements with the first being how this movie involves more characters from different areas of the city. Each brings a different perspective on the purge, and creates new angles in the story. There is a young white couple, an African American mother and daughter, and a guy who's out for revenge. Each has their own story line before they end up together, and on the streets.   Yes, that's right, on
