Crop And Save
People who live double lives.
It's fascinating and a slow burn, but I like it. A woman who seemingly has it all is bored and longs for excitement through her patients and their lovers. Who hasn't wanted to be someone else at some point? I do wish they'd chosen another singer for the theme song. I love Stevie Nicks, but her voice is not the same as it once was.
I, Tonya (2017)
I had low expectations, but man this was good. I have always been neutral to the controversy, but I think I am team Tonya now. Allison Janney deserved that Oscar. It was a little hard to believe Margot Robbie ass Tonya, though.
I know. Subtitles...
Normally I skip out on foreign horror movies with subtitles, but my spouse and I really enjoyed this horror movie because it's not so far fetched. Much better than other demon/ possession movies released in recent years. All of the child actors were good in their roles, and the demon was genuinely frightening because you don't see it often. I thought the mattress idea was a good one. It's based on a true story... which makes it even better.
The Halloween and Christmas episode.
This episode is one of my favorites because it's Halloween and Christmas rolled into one, and they pulled it off perfectly. There is the old house, a tale of a lover's pact long ago, Mulder being Mulder and searching for ghosts on Christmas Eve (of all days), and Scully dragged along when she really wanted to be somewhere else. I liked the addition of Lily Tomlin and Ed Asner as the ghosts. They weren't what you expected, and they weren't what Mulder expected, either. Scully: "You know what's weird? Mulder, she's wearing my outfit." Mulder: "How embarrassing." Scully: "Well, you know what? He's wearing yours." And then they're off in this huge house that's a tricky maze.
Better now than it was back then
I completely ignored this show when it was on air. There was so much hype in the news about it being controversial, the kids over analyzed everyone and everything, and they spoke like people in their 30's when trying to be an intellectual. Looking back I think it was a good show with many hot topics teens go through, and what I like about it is it took place in a time when the 90's were almost over. The end of a decade. I just like to see the clothes, makeup, etc. And to me the best episodes were simple and not so complicated with teen angst and drama over relationships, such as "The Scare", "Escape from Witch Island", and "Four Scary Stories". Seasons 1-3 were the best.
The Eclipse (2009)
I enjoyed watching this movie unfold.
This movie may move too slow for some people who are used to modern horror movies where everything is constant gore or sex. The Eclipse is more true to an actually book story being told. I liked the setting and the scenery. I liked the characters..except Aidan Quinn's, and that's just natural because he's annoying. The older man popping up out of nowhere actually is scary because the music that goes along with the scene is so tranquil up until that point. I was watching it in the dark, but even in the light the scenes like that will catch you off guard. Overall this was a good story and plot. His deceased wife coming back at the end to see him was emotionally real and thoughtful.
The Exorcist (1973)
A chilling classic
For everyone born after 1973 the experience of the movie's debut in theaters is something you cannot imagine. Nothing like it had ever been made before, or since. The essential element in this movie is it could happen to you. That stays in the back of your mind throughout the movie. A non-religious family, divorced parents, a newly single working mom, and a naive pre-teen daughter. The movie weaves a web in your mind. How could something like this happen? A innocent girl playing with a Ouija Board because she had nothing better to do, and her mother was hardly around due to her busy career. There is a disconnection in their relationship. Perhaps the divorce of her parents left her emotionally vulnerable... and Regan is a very vulnerable character. The characters are more connected than they know. There is an underlying plot that it was a trap for Father Merrin. How the possession began, the mother went to a priest for help, and he was an acquaintance of Father Merrin. Perhaps he knew it would come back into his life, and was waiting. Nothing is explained, but you can guess this demon and the priest have met before. What made it so amazing is they did not hold back. It's not the book version because that would be too outrageous even today. An NC-17 rating to say the least. When the movie ends there is still a black cloud over the family. She decides to move, but it seems they are running away. Who could stay in a house where so many unimaginable things occurred? This movie leaves a lasting impression in your mind.
