The Mustang (2019)
8/10
A tale of hope, connection, and chance of redemption.
14 July 2019
"The Mustang" is a heartfelt emotional drama that shows how connection and exploring and experiencing interactions can help a person. The tale is of a prisoner in rural Nevada who struggles to escape his past only to be helped and treated in a new social program. This involves training a stubborn Mustang named Marcus. Look for some good work from veteran Bruce Dern as a veteran trainer and other fellow inmates assist in this new program. All of this is a new heartfelt connection of hope and a challenge and chance to be a better person, something that all should take to.

Arctic (2018)
8/10
A film of will and desire to live and survive while fighting elements and mother nature!
14 July 2019
"Arctic" is one film that as you watch is very visual as the picture as a whole has very little dialogue still the scenes are harrowing and stunning with drama like cliff hanging sequences that prove life is often a battle. Mads Mikkelsen is Overgard a desperate man who is stranded in the snow covered wilderness after a plane crash, and the whole scene is a virtual wasteland as skill and wit come in handy while waiting for help. Later a big decision that has life or death risk comes into play, as only hope can help Overgard get thru, clearly this is a heart pounding heart catching drama film of desire and battle of will to live.

Superbad (2007)
6/10
A wild night and laid back feel good teen film!
13 July 2019
"Superbad" is one flick as you watch you feel the far out and crazy fun as it's a typical teen comedy that features the themes of fitting in with having sex, getting girls and having a party in high school before a college send off. The movie has two high school seniors Seth(the funny Jonah Hill) and Evan(Michael Cera) who go thru these same things mentioned in the meantime they having a ball doing it as the party and alcohol is so fun it's like a wild night something similar to "Porky's" or "Animal House"! Also of note is an early and young role with Bill Hader("HBO's" "Barry") as Officer Slater a cool laid back cop! Overall good teen film to watch for feel good fun.

9/10
Well done music video from Madonna.
9 July 2019
In 1993 this song "Rain" was a huge hit from Madonna as it was so relaxing, and had a feel good mood and the song was about about the pain of love as rain is compared to teardrops!

10/10
Eye opening and great video of history and brings awareness to want to help!
9 July 2019
In 1988 as a kid I remember this hit from Michael called "Man in the Mirror" and watching the music video was even more touching as it went along with the lyrics even more. The clips are a montage of the world and it's current problems of poverty, showing homeless people, starving kids, and it showcases the deaths of "MLK" and "JFK", plus it shows images of the "KKK" as it's a cause and shout out for race relations awareness. Still it's message is that of hope and wanting to help for change and need as it starts with yourself and that's the man in the mirror do something about it to change and help society and save souls. Overall great song and excellent music video that goes hand in hand to bring awareness to society showing that love, kindness, and help is needed to save the world.

Madonna: Take a Bow (1994 Video)
9/10
Strong powerful video of hurt and sexy like passion music video.
4 July 2019
In 1994 remember this hit from the material girl called "Take a Bow" the music video is very sexy for showing Madonna on the bed singing sporting a very sexy multi colored bra and panties. Shot in Spain it shows a bullfighter and matador at his best, yet on the other side this sexy stud is a painful horn in Madonna's side as she is an abused lover! It proves despite passion that love hurts! Plus the video had themes of religion, and feminism still it's remembered for it's hot sexy scenes of Madonna.

Video of life, love and a strong message about keeping her baby!
4 July 2019
"Papa Don't Preach" is a strong song and video from Madonna as it has a message of life. The music video shot in New York follows the material girl as a teen who's in a relationship of love and passion. And it intersect showing her life with daddy(actor Danny Aiello) who has conflict and tension with his daughter even more so after he finds out about her pregnancy. The video is also mixed with Madonna dancing in a background black like studio. Still the actions and words of this song are powerful as it's maybe a VOTE to be pro life, as one knows Madonna was always blunt and outspoken.

Madonna: Crazy for You (1985 Video)
10/10
My favorite all time Madonna song!
4 July 2019
Back in 1985 the material girl produced this classic love pop hit called "Crazy for You" which is my all time favorite. As the lyrics and words are just so strong as it promotes love, life, togetherness, and happiness. The music video goes along with the movie "Vision Quest" which in it's own right is also a love story of a young couple featured are Linda Fiorentino and Matthew Modine and clips are mixed in a montage like way with movie scenes and with Madonna singing the song in front of a bar crowd. Overall well done homage to a great Madonna song one of the 80's biggest hits!

Cool feel good music video from Madonna!
4 July 2019

Good video for slow moving rock love song.
29 June 2019
In 1989 hard rock band Guns N' Roses had a big hit that crossed over on the pop charts with this slow moving love song called "Patience" and the music video does justice showing how love and life goes and moves in and out. As you listen to the song you know it's about love and loss and watching the video you see many beautiful women going and leaving bed to bed with many of the band members. Filmed in a hotel and other memorable clips are "Slash" with his pet snake and Rose is pictured being alone watching TV of his past music it's like all of them have moved on. Good video and good hit from "GNR".

9/10
Hard core song and video as the images go hand in hand with the song.
29 June 2019
Maybe the biggest and most hard core rock song from "GNR" was this late 1980's hit in 1987 thru 1988 called "Welcome to the Jungle" as it really caused a craze on the charts. And "MTV" flooded the airwaves with this music video which stays true to the crazy world and the title song as it shows clips of violence, poverty, riots, and just downright crazy things as the band plays the music. To top things off the man himself Axl Rose is placed in a straight jacket it's like he's waiting for the electric chair to get out of his pain! Wild and raw music video that rocked the late 80's.

Sexy soap of secrets and how it connects with the personal and professional lives of each!
28 June 2019
"ABC" has once again done it they have a winner with this nighttime soap called "Grand Hotel" as it's set in Miami Beach and deals with a family owned and ran hotel.

To spice things up and put icing on the cake is Santiago's new trophy socialite wife Gigi(the eye candy and sexy Roselyn Sanchez) who always mixes things up in the pot and is blunt and provocative in personal and professional dealings. This series does contain secrets like murder, and ghost from the past as you the viewer have to figure out the characters. Overall great super watch for summer.

Euphoria (2019– )
8/10
Blunt, provocative, raw and showcase series of sex, drugs, and social media.
28 June 2019
Everyone knows that the times have changed and that today's kids and high school students live much different. As the way that they have sex and the new drugs they do are different and social media has connected with much of that with the use of i phones, laptops, face time, snap chat, and post on you tube with twitter messages at the drop of a hat. Well that's what this new "HBO" series is about called "Euphoria" it tracks the life and times of a group of high school kids who face these many problems that I just mentioned. Star of the show Zendaya is Rue a young lady who returns from rehab as she's an addict and upon arriving back at home and school she makes a new friend named Jules(Hunter Schafer). And this series pushes the envelope even for premium cable of "HBO" as the drug and sex scenes are raw, gritty, and explicit. Overall one blunt outspoken provocative series to watch for some juicy entertainment.

NFL Live (1991– )
8/10
Informative and up to date NFL news program.
28 June 2019
For years now on "ESPN" this program called "NFL Live" is a must watch and view for pro football fans as every day it gives breaking news and up to date happenings from the NFL. As during the season it covers the latest injuries with updates and features press conferences from players and coaches and reports from practices and interviews with league stars with updates on free agents and contract statuses during the off season along with a draft preview. Also former players and coaches are also featured on the show who break down game film and talk about upcoming games with predictions and they look inside the stat pack and they often play cool games of trivia and pop culture games while doing power rankings for every team.

Child's Play (2019)
8/10
A pretty decent remake and now it's a high tech Chucky!
24 June 2019
Growing up as a kid still young in 1988 I remember seeing "Child's Play" and it became a horror classic that would span several sequels. Now in 2019 it was time for an update and new take on it. Still the little doll has the same bad nature as he toys with the lives of all of those around him bringing death and pain. Set in a big city a divorced sexy bed hopping sexy colored bra wearing mom named Karen(Aubrey Plaza who also has a damsel in distress scene in which she's tied up and has her mouth duct taped!) buys her 13 year old son Andy(Gabriel Bateman) a birthday present and then plenty of bad nature starts. This little red headed buddy is not who he seems as "Chucky" wrecks havoc upon those in his path. The film is blended with themes of the high tech world as this doll is controlled by apps that include the use of a cell phone, and it's programmed and wired for wi-fi use as this doll comes with a planted computer chip! Overall well done update of a horror classic as it tied in with the current times of 2019 more and it's a must see for horror or "Child's Play" fans. Also a note Mark Hamill is the voice of Chucky.

6/10
Dark horror zombie comedy that's fun yet not serious.
24 June 2019
"The Dead Don't Die" is one independent film that doesn't have much of a plot, yet it entertains and thrills with one liners and dark humor as it's a little parody of George Romero flicks like "Night of the Living Dead," and "Creepshow" as these zombies will not die and they rise from the grave and eat flesh! Set in a rural town called Centerville the graveyard comes alive after the town is plagued with loss of cell phone service, and it seems like night and day is mixed up as the time of day seems strange. Plus pets and animals start to vanish plus some blood and gore is added with plenty of laughs. And the lineup features some film favorites like Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Chloe Sevigny, Steve Buscemi, and Carol Kane. Overall nothing special or fantastic it's just a film that has fun with one liners and thinking that the end of the world might end with an army of zombies.

The Legend of Zelda (1986 Video Game)
8/10
A travel maze and journey challenge game which was a discovery of fun and magic.
20 June 2019
One of the earliest and first classic NES games was "The Legend of Zelda" a travel and journey adventure thru a magic world in which you as the player "Zelda" were on a journey to save and find a princess, yet your travel and journey took you thru many different lands of water, sand, and dark hidden dungeons as you faced all kinds of foes in the form of creatures and warriors. The key was obtaining magic, and learning spells and unlocking treasures and finding maps to guide you thru new lands and meeting new people to obtain knowledge and survive. Really a tough complex game as I never mastered, yet a friend of mine did after many times. Still a difficult mind numbing addictive travel journey classic that was a maze of thought and skill.

Super Mario Bros. (1985 Video Game)
10/10
Classic and best memorable video game ever!
20 June 2019
This was the first and maybe most well known game for the classic NES system as it was fun and a challenge to go thru different worlds and levels and create extra men and have more bodies for battle in the mushroom kingdom as the goal was to save and rescue the kidnapped princess from the evil Bowser. I loved the game as I mastered it several times it was fun as you went thru worlds of water(you had to learn to swim) and facing flying creatures and moving toads and would go thru evil castles of fire all while playing as the little plumber Mario. Really need I say more a memorable video game classic that helped start the industry.

Batman (1989 Video Game)
9/10
Fun entertainment close to the 1989 film!
20 June 2019
In 1989 with the success of the "Batman" film NES made a video game and the graphics and music had the dark feel and mood of the 1989 blockbuster! The action and punches were feel good as you played as "Batman" you went thru different levels and stages I remember facing machines and going thru a chemical factory! Plus "Batman" had cool weapons in this game and plus it was a challenge I never mastered it yet had a friend to go thru all levels and defeat "The Joker" at the end! Seeing the fight and the bat signal rise at the end was worthwhile as it brought you back to the movie! Overall good game that was a challenge while paying homage to the 1989 blockbuster.

Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! (1987 Video Game)
9/10
Fun and great boxing game and it's tough and impossible to beat Mike!
20 June 2019
"Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!" was a blast and fun tough boxing video game that entertained with it's music and graphics it really was a knockout as you the fighter had to learn tricks and skills and how to finger the A and B buttons to beat certain fighters! Plus it was unreal to beat Tyson as I could never do it! You are Little Mac and you must work your way up thru the ranks by fighting fighters from all over the world before you get a crack at Mike! Don't worry if you lose you can fight again! The foes are real characters as up first is the tomato can Glass Joe, then to name a few you had "Piston Honda", the fat "King Hippo"(remember to punch in the belly to knockout!) and tough fights were always found with the magic of Great Tiger, the brute and strength of Mr. Sandman, Soda Pokinski, and Bald Bull all were fun and good challenges before "Iron Mike". In fact they were secrets and codes remember 007-373-5963 you could type and go straight off to face Mike only to get slaughtered! I could never beat Tyson as your hand speed on the buttons had to be super quick! Great and super game for the classic NES system as this was one of it's first released in 1987 a classic game for the video game hall of fame!

Tecmo Super Bowl (1991 Video Game)
10/10
Best and greatest NES Football game ever!
20 June 2019
Remember back in 1991 when this video game called "Tecmo Super Bowl" was released which was a sequel to the original game and an upgrade as it featured ever "NFL" team! And the graphics and music was also better. You picked which "NFL" team you wanted to play as and each week played the 1991 actual schedule, and most of the time the computer was easy to beat, as it was all about switching up play calling. Plus the game featured actual "NFL" players and it was fun to follow the stats and standings thru the season! As it was fun to win and go thru the playoffs and win the super bowl! Great game that I loved to death and played many times a sure classic for the old "NES" system.

A drama of emotions combined with loss, tragedy, change, and closure.
15 June 2019
"American Woman" is one film that is well done it's a moving touching type picture of life and how with love and family one can get thru struggle and pain. It proves that life is up and down with emotions that come from tragedy and loss as thru change closure is finally found. The movie showcases all of these themes so well! Set in rural and blue collar Pennsylvania Debra(in a raw and gritty performance from Sienna Miller) is a single and bed hopping mother who has her world shattered one day after her daughter goes missing as now she has to raise her grandson alone. The movie spans thru her life for 11 years as it's really a roller coaster of highs and lows the pain and drama becomes daily trials of life for Deb. It all ranges from anger and hope the movie makes you really feel like you are going thru life too just like that of Deb's character as we all remember the hardships of life and it's pain. Overall good emotional drama of life and how change happens and spans thru the years before closure.

NOS4A2 (2019– )
8/10
Clever, strange, wicked, magic like horror suspense series.
15 June 2019
Watched the start of this new "AMC" series called "NOS4A2" and it's a magical and strange horror fantasy like series that's well written with a clever plot that will keep one interested and guessing about what lies next and just what will happen to the central characters involved. I will try to stay a little tight lipped to not be a spoiler. The series involves Charlie Manx(the wonderful Zachary Quinto) as a mean and old strange like aged demon figure who picks up picked on and unwanted little kids and takes them to the magic fantasy land of "Christmasland"! A wild card and subplot to the series is in New England that involves a young lady named Vic McQueen(Ashleigh Cummings) who has a dumps trash like home life as her parents are split her only hope is that of magic as she has a special gift that connects her to see things and even see into the future just like that of a psychic. And her path seems to be headed for a connection with Manx. Overall different type of series that holds interest and provokes thought.

Madonna: Like a Prayer (1989 Video)
8/10
Blunt, outspoken, provocative controversial music video!
15 June 2019
In 1989 pop queen Madonna had a huge super hit with this single "Like a Prayer" as the words were moving, yet the music video was eye popping causing a stir that "MTV" would only air at later times! It's themes of religion and race shook many as it shows a black man as a suspect in front of a church, as a murder committed was put on him! And Madonna pushed the limits with the gospel showing wounds and blood on her hands like that of the crucifixion! Need I say more as the material girl really pushed the limits and boundaries of expression.

A story of life and love and changing for the moment still life is uncertain.
11 June 2019
"The Tomorrow Man" is one sweet heartfelt drama that touches you proving that life is unexpected and unpredictable and as things come change happens. Ed Hemsler(John Lithgow) is a tuna shopping supermarket Ford driving set in his ways old man who obsesses about the future and the end of time by watching newscast of his ex wife anchor who speaks to his mind in a silent way. Then one day a new chance and hope comes in the form of Ronnie(Blythe Danner) an old lady who's fine she's just not organized. Now unexpected things happen in life for Ed proving that he should live in the moment and not worry about the future. Overall okay film of hope, chance, that's a in depth spin on life and how that it changes with uncertainty.
