Lunchtime Walk Photos 3/27/2020

Image
I was supposed to tour a college campus with my oldest daughter today. But, then COVID-19 happened and here we are.

I decided not to let it get me down though and, since the temps were almost warm enough, went for a walk at lunch with my camera. I didn't see a whole heck of a lot animal-wise and think I'm a little out of practice (and out of shape) but I did manage some photos.

Who's in it? The movie stars Felissa Rose, Jonathan Tiersten, Karen Fields, Katherine Kamhi and Christopher Collet.


Review: My wife and I both sort of remember seeing this movie when we were teenagers but neither of us remembered a whole lot about it. So, when I came across it on VUDU, I decided to watch it with her last night.

Slasher movies like this are pretty much hit or miss. And, based on the premise, I was expecting this one to fall into that "miss" column. As it turns out, however, it was actually a pretty decent film.

I think the thing that really impressed me about this movie was it wasn't quite as predictable as I thought it was going to be. Naturally, sinc…

Who's in it? The movie stars Taylor Blackwell, Avery Kristen Pohl, Lauryn Speights, Skyler Seymour and Caia Coley.


Review: I came across this movie while flipping channels a couple days ago and, thinking it sounded somewhat interesting, decided to record it. Since my wife and I couldn't find anything on TV tonight, we decided to watch it and, well, let's just say we kind of wished there was something else on TV.

The premise itself wasn't too terrible, though I also wouldn't describe it as being overly unique either. It's just the execution was pretty bad, even for a made-for-TV film.

First, my wife described it best when she said the movie wa…

Review: My wife mistook this movie for another film when we were scrolling through horror flicks on VUDU and, at her recommendation, I wound up selecting it. Obviously, it wound up not being the movie we were expecting. But, I did think the film was surprisingly good.

I don't know if I would describe the movie as being particularly scary. In fact, there were times in the film when I wondered if maybe the writers wanted it to be more of a comedy. But, the movie did wind up having some good things going for it.

For one, I found I liked the mystery surrounding the house and …

Movie Review: The Recall (2017)

Image

Who's in it? The movie stars Wesley Snipes, RJ Mitte, Laura Bilgeri, Hannah Rose May and Niko Pepaj.


Review: My wife and I weren't able to do a whole heck of a lot over our anniversary weekend, mostly because everything is closed because of COVID-19. So, looking for an escape from the horror movie going on outside, we opted for an alien invasion film. Overall, this turned out to be better than I was expecting.

Actually, I thought the overall premise was pretty darn good. The aliens weren't just invading and abducting people, they arrived with the purpose of performing experiments on and upgrading humans (for motivations unknown). If nothing else, it was somewhat unique and a little intriguing.

The movie also managed to have quite a bit more susp…

Who's in it? The movie stars David Chisum, Kristen Kerr,Richard Tyson, Erick Avari and Siena Goines.


Review: With everything going on around us with this COVID-19 stuff, I figured it was as good of night as any to watch a zombie movie. And, when I came across this one on VUDU, I couldn't resist.

Truthfully, I wasn't really sure what to expect from this movie and mostly wonder if it would turn out to be a terrible film. However, it wound up being a lot better than I thought it would be.

For one, having a zombie film take place in such a confined space added a little extra suspense to the movie. There were very few places to hide and, unlike many other zombie films, it wasn't as though potential weapons were readily available.

Adding to this was the way the zombies woul…
