Blu-ray Review: Goofy ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ is Worth a Look

Chicago – Knock me over with a feather kids, but I enjoyed “Transformers: The Last Knight.” Maybe it was in comparison to the others or maybe director Michael Bay has beaten me into submission, but this one had the right story elements and casting to make it work, with exceptions of course. It’s goofiness is its charm, and it was released on Blu-Ray/DVD on September 26th, 2017 (Digital HD already available).

Rating: 3.5/5.0

The two essential things that made the film more tolerable was Anthony Hopkins and Laura Haddock, two Brits who brought some performance parts that made me laugh in their earnestness – Sir Anthony was particularly bizarre. The story is tied into the Arthurian legend, and begins on a knights-of-the-round-table battlefield, and somehow that gave a bit more understanding to what was going on, which was decidedly lacking in previous films. The rest will be pretty familiar to the Transformers’ universe and fan base,

A New Exhibit Shows the Way Selena Quintanilla Forever Changed the World of Marketing
The late singer Selena Quintanilla, who rose to international stardom for her music in the 80s and 90s, isn’t known for influencing the history of marketing, but according to a new exhibit at the National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C., she should be.

‘Clowntergeist’ VOD Review

Stars: Brittany Belland, Monica Baker, Aaron Mirtes, Madeleine Heil, Eric Corbin, Burt Culver, Tom Seidman, Johnjay Fitih, Sean Patrick Murray | Written and Directed by Aaron Mirtes

You never know what you are going to get when you take a chance with a low budget movie, but with a title like Clowntergeist there is a good chance that this would be anything but boring…

Emma (Brittany Belland) is a college student who suffers from coulrophobia (fear of clowns) to the extent that even a clown picture on a T-shirt or a clown themed ice lolly in the ice cream shop which she works, strikes fear into her. If suffering mercilessly with a crippling fear of clowns wasn’t bad enough, things soon get worse when she realises that a possessed killer called Ribcage the Clown is on a killing spree throughout the town.

The killer delivers a red balloon to his potential victims,

Drive-in Movie Theaters In St. Louis – Movie Geek Lecture at Missouri History Museum September 12th

I will be speaking about The History of St. Louis Drive-In Movie Theaters on Tuesday September 12th at 10:30am at Lee Auditorium inside the Missouri History Museum (Lindell and DeBaliviere in Forest Park, St. Louis, Missouri)

The I-44 Drive-in Movie theater was a regular hangout for me in the late 1970’s. A perfect day was to spend the daylight hours at Six Flags in Eureka, then head East on 1-44, get off at Highway 141 and spend the evening watching a double feature at that Drive-In. The I-44 had the worst location for a drive-in. It sat in the valley wedged between a landfill, railroad tracks, and the Meramec river. The fog would settle in the Valley and block out the projector’s beam, the train noise would often drown out the sound, and the mosquitos loved the river, the landfill, and the taste of those attending the drive-in. But I still loved it there.
