The Walking Dead: Bonds (2019)
Season 10, Episode 6
7/10
The Dangerous Alliance
16 November 2019
Carol sneaks out and leaves Hilltop but Daryl sees and asks her where she is going. She tells that she would hunt Negan and reluctantly accepts the company of Daryl. They stop at the border and Daryl finds Carol´s true intention. In Alexandria, Siddiq and Dante are facing a mysterious epidemic with many residents sick. Negan is tested by the Whisperers and surprisingly survives. Eugene makes contact through radio with a mysterious woman.

"Bonds" is another good episode of "The Walking Dead". The consequence of trespassing the border of Carol and Daryl associated to the dangerous alliance of Negan and Alpha indicate a promising sequel. The disease certainly caused by the remains of walkers dropped by the Whisperers into the river is also promising. My vote is seven.

The Walking Dead: What It Always Is (2019)
Season 10, Episode 5
7/10
Negan Returns
16 November 2019
While hunting a boar, Kelly has hearing problem and is attacked by walkers and passes out. Negan is hunted by a Hilltop group and he meets Brandon that worships him. In Hilltop, supplies are being stolen. Ezekiel is coughing and Siddiq discovers a secret. Negan meets two survivors. Amelia and her son Milo, and asks Brandon to return to Alexandria. He gets close to the boy and intends to take them both to Hilltop but something tragic happens. Daryl, Connie and Magna find Kelly and the supplies that are missing. Negan goes to the border to meet the Whisperers.

"What It Always Is" is the fifth episode of this great Tenth Season of The Walking Dead. The most important subplot is the return of the dangerous Negan seeking alliance with Alpha. The storyline of Amelia and Milo is very sad. The fate of Ezekiel is another tragic part of this show. My vote is seven.

Eighteen years later, Akiko Kashiwagi (Midori Fujita) is a school teacher that lives with her younger sister Natsuko Kashiwagi (Sanae Emi) and their dog Leo in an isolated house by a lake.

Soon victims without blood and two holes on the neck arrive in the hospital and Dr. Takashi Saeki is attacking them at the lakeshore where Akiko lives and he decides to investigate.

"Noroi no yakata: Chi o suu me", a.k.a. "Lake of Dracula", is another vampire movie produced by Toho studios. The flawed plot is entertaining and is funny to see Akiko and Takashi going to the vampire house during the night without any weapon. The age of the dog Leo is also intriguing. My vote is six.

"Yûrei yashiki no kyôfu: Chi wo sû ningyô", a.k.a. "The Vampire Doll", is an atmospheric vampire movie produced by Toho studios. It is interesting to see the Japanese view of vampire and how scary the make-up is. The plot is satisfactory and will not disappoint any fan of the genre. My vote is seven.

Haunt (I) (2019)
4/10
The Haunted House
4 November 2019
In Illinois, six college friends celebrate the Halloween party in a bar. They decide to visit an isolated haunted house in the middle of the night but soon they realize that the dreadful live shows are for real.

"Haunt" is a violent and overrated slasher movie that may entertain fans of the genre. However the illogical screenplay and characters are poorly developed and unoriginal. There is no explanation for the motives of the brutality of the crazy people from the haunted house. The rushed conclusion is also absurd. My vote is four.

Aladdin (I) (2019)
7/10
Funny and Entertaining Version by Guy Ritchie
3 November 2019
"Aladdin" is a very funny and highly entertaining version of the Arabian Nights´ tale by Guy Ritchie. First of all, Will Smith steals the film in the role of a Genie - most of his scenes could be included in the best moments of the movie. The beauty of Naomi Scott is impressive and shines. Marwan Kenzari performs the great villain Jafar with good performance. The small-thief Mena Massoud is a great and warm-hearted Aladdin. Last but not the least, the monkey Abu and the evil macaw complete the brilliant cast of this good version indicated as a wonderful family entertainment. My vote is seven.

The Walking Dead: Silence the Whisperers (2019)
Season 10, Episode 4
8/10
Lydia and Negan
27 October 2019
The outcast Lydia is badly treated by three Alexandrians. When Negan saves her from an attack, the life changes in Alexandria. Meanwhile Michonne and a group of Alexandrians head to Hilltop to save survivors of a collapsed wall.

"Silence the Whisperers" is an episode where the outcast Lydia and Negan are lead characters. The despicable Negan may have changed but it is hard for the Alexandrians to support him. But Lydia is a key character for this season and only Michonne has understood her importance. It might be terrible be bullied all the time especially in a post-apocalypse world. But the greatest problem is still the human race despite of the walkers. How many people had died in confrontation with the "human beings" along ten seasons? My vote is eight.

Yesterday (III) (2019)
7/10
Delightful Fantasy
27 October 2019
The aspirant singer Jack Malik (Himesh Patel) is struggling to be a great musician with the support of his agent Ellie Appleton (Lily James) and his closer friends. However he is a failure and needs to work in a supermarket to survive. One day there is a blackout and Jack has an accident while riding his bicycle. When he recovers, Ellie gives a new guitar to him and Jack plays "Yesterday". Soon he realizes that the world does not know "The Beatles" and he plays and sings their songs becoming the best musician in the world with a greedy agent. But can he afford the price he has to pay for the stolen success?

"Yesterday" is a delightful fantasy with the story of a world without "The Beatles", coke, cigarettes, USSR and Harry Potter. It is hard to understand Jack´s final decision, but the romantic story is a fantasy so it is very reasonable the conclusion. The sweet Lily James steals the film. My vote is seven.

The Planck´s Constant
27 October 2019
Hopper, Joyce and Murray head to the Russian base to activate the keys that are opening The Gate, with the support of Steve, Robin, Dustin and Erica by radio. El and her friends are leaving the Starcourt Mall when they realize that Billy has stolen the ignition cable from Nancy´s car and they are forced to seek shelter from the Mind Flayer in the mall.

"Chapter Eight: The Battle of Starcourt" is the second best episode of this season. The conclusion is great and hope to find Hopper safe and sound in Russia. The part when Dustin needs the Planck´s Constant is tense and hilarious. My vote is eight.

The Carnival
27 October 2019

They return to the Starcourt Mall and hide in a movie theater that is showing "Back to the Future". Hopper, Joyce, Murray and Alexei are driving to the Carnival to rescue the children. Alexei teaches how to destroy the machine that is opening The Gate.

"Chapter Seven: The Bite" is another great episode of "Stranger Things" with three important segments. One in the Carnival; in the Starcourt Mall; and in the cabin and supermarket. The sad part is the fate of the funny Alexei. My vote is eight.

Dr. Alexei explains that the Russian are trying to open the gate to the Upside Down to destroy America using the local power facilities.

"Chapter Six: E Pluribus Unum" discloses why the Russians are trying to open the gate in Hawkins. El gets in trouble with her powers. What will happen next? My vote is eight.

8/10
Great Sequel
26 October 2019
The elevator where Steve, Robin, Dustin and Erica are trapped goes uninterruptedly down until it stops. When Russian agents arrive, they succeed to leave the shaft but they cannot leave the underground base.

However their car breaks and they are forced to hijack another car to visit a Hopper's friend that speaks Russian.

"Chapter Five: The Flayed" is a great sequel of "Stranger Things" basically divided in three segments: Steve, robin, Dustin and Erica at the Russian base; the journey of Hopper and Joyce with the Russian scientist; and the visit of the teenagers to Mrs. Driscoll. All of them exciting, funny and suspenseful adventures. My vote is eight.

The Best Episode So Far
26 October 2019
El is talking to Max and tells that she is worried with Billy and Heather. Mrs. Driscoll is taken by the police to a hospital. The Mind Flayer attacks Tom and Janet in the empty factory and turns them into the Flayed.

Robin buys blueprints of the Starcourt Mall to find an access to the restricted rooms. Erica makes a deal with Robin, Steve and Dustin to open the door of the restricted room.

"Chapter Four: The Sauna Test" is so far the best episode of the Third season of "Stranger Things". The episode is full of tension and action and has interesting subplots. My vote is nine.

Hallucinations
23 October 2019
Alexandria is under hourly attack of hordes of walkers for almost two days and the dwellers are exhausted. Lydia discloses that this type of strategy is unusual to her mother that would rather send a massive attack. Gamma comes to Alexandria and tells that they need to meet Alpha unarmed at the North border. Daryl, Michonne and Carol go to the encounter with Alpha that tells that she knows they crossed the border three times but she will not punish them. Meanwhile the resented Aaron is assigned to fight the walkers with Negan in the South. Carol is keeping awake using medication and has hallucinations with the Whisperers.

"Ghosts" is a great and promising episode of "The Walking Dead" with many walkers and a story like in the "old times". Fans of this series will certainly enjoy with "The Walking Dead" back on tracks. The deranged Alpha and the Whisperers will certainly be another powerful enemy of the survivors. My vote is eight.

How Alpha Met Beta
21 October 2019
"The Walking Dead - We Are the End of the World" shows in flashback how Alpha met Beta. The deranged character and her daughter seek for shelter in an old building where their first encounter is. The episode is only reasonable and the viewer has an idea how disturbed they are. My vote is seven.

They are also attacked by a herd of walkers and need to fight. Daryl and Carol walk to a cliff and Carol and Alpha see each other.

Divided in segments (Training Day / Skin / Bird Wisdom / Sea Dogs / New Mexico / Lines We Cross / Embers), "Lines We Cross" is the return of "The Walking Dead". The episode is reasonable and worthwhile watching. The conclusion is promising. My vote is seven.

The Evil Russian
18 October 2019
Max and El decide to spy Billy using El's power and she sees Heather and Billy. However El is attacked by a monster and they decide to check Billy at home. Meanwhile Joyce and Hopper go to the Hawkins Laboratory that is closed. Robin translates the Russian encoded message snooping around in the mall with Steve and Dustin.

In "Chapter Three: The Case of the Missing Lifeguard", the action and humor of the first two season have returned. So far the transformation of Billy was the greatest mystery; but now there are other interesting storylines simultaneously happening. My vote is seven.

Love Is in the Air
18 October 2019
In 1985, in Hawkins, El and Mike are in love with each other. Lucas, Max and Will miss Mike that is ignoring them and go to the movie theater together. There is a power failure in Hawkins for a short period. Dustin returns home and does not find his friends.

Out of the blue, he picks up a Russian communication on his radio. Billy schedules an encounter with Karen Wheeler during the night.

"Chapter One: Suzie, Do You Copy?" is a weak beginning of the Third Season of "Stranger Things". There is few action and most of the time is romance. However the conclusion is intriguing. My vote is five.

Overrated Reviews in IMDb
14 October 2019
The 16 year-old Maggie (Diana Silvers) and her mother Erica (Juliette Lewis) move from San Diego to a small town in the Mississippi to start a new life. Soon Maggie befriends a group of teenagers from the high-school and together they befriend the nice Sue Ann (Octavia Spencer), who works at the local pet shop. She invites the teenagers to drink and party at her house but what they do not know is that Sue Ann is a psychotic woman that is plotting a revenge.

"Ma" is a reasonable thriller but with many overrated reviews in IMDb. The plot is unoriginal and predictable with the combination of insanity due to a humiliation of the psychotic lead character and revenge. The screenplay never surprises and is full of cliches. However entertains and is worthwhile watching with lower expectations if the viewer does not have a better option. My vote is six.

It is a Sequel
13 October 2019
My wife and I saw "Iron Sky: The Coming Race" yesterday and we found the unfunny screenplay very poor without development of the situation and characters. But now I have just read in IMDb that this film is a sequel of "Iron Sky". Therefore my advice to the viewers is do not see "Iron Sky: The Coming Race" without seeing "Iron Sky" first. My vote is four.

The Intriguing Supernatural Field
11 October 2019
While traveling to San Diego, Cal DeMuth (Avery Whitted) stops the car nearby a tall grass field since his pregnant sister Becky (Laysla De Oliveira) is sick and need to vomit. They overhear the cry for help from a young boy and decide to look for the boy in the field. Soon they realize the field is a supernatural place that manipulates time and space and there is no way out from the tall grass.

"In the Tall Grass" is an intriguing supernatural horror movie with a story based on a novel of Stephen King that recalls a creepy episode of The Twilight Zone. The conclusion is open to interpretation but if the boy succeeds to stop Cal and Becky, Travis will probably never look for them and consequently would be also saved. My vote is six.

Pay Attention and You Will See an Intriguing Sci-Fi
10 October 2019
In 1988, in Philadelphia, Police Detective Locke (Boyd Holbrook) and his partner Maddox (Bokeem Woodbine) hunt down a female serial killer. Locke kills her in the subway and the case is closed by his chief Holt (Michael C. Hall) without identification of the killer. In 2007, similar crimes happen and Locke and Maddox believe in a copycat. However Locke finds that the killer is the same woman he killed nine years ago. Locke becomes obsessed with the case along the years and Locke believes she travels in time in the opposite timeline. When the woman reappears nine years later, Locke is waiting for her.

"In the Shadow of the Moon" is an intriguing and original sci-fi with a good story. The slow pace is a problem and if the viewer loses a part of the film, he or she may not understand the plot. But if the viewer pays attention to the details, he or she may have a good surprise. My vote is seven.

Decent Werewolf Film

Ted accepts the invitation when the police find several corpses attacked by an animal nearby his trailer. Ted is welcomed by Janet and Brett but their dog Thor estranges him. Soon Janet suspects and finds evidences that Ted is a werewolf and her family is in danger.

"Bad Moon" is a decent werewolf film, with reasonable story. In this film, Ted turns into a werewolf every night, and not only in the full moon. He comes closer to his beloved sister and nephew expecting that the love of his family heals or at least help him to control the beast within as his last chance. The dog Thor (Primo) steals the movie. My vote is six.

Meanwhile, a lonely Maquis Frenchman is delusional and believes his beloved wife and daughter are hidden in the village afraid of the shootout. He decides to stop the Americans and the Germans and force them to leave the village.

"Anniversary" is a sad episode of "Combat!" with the story of a man that cannot accept the death of his wife and daughter. Telly Savalas has a good performance and the dramatic plot is heartbreaking. My vote is seven.
