Happy Easter everyone, and to celebrate, here’s the 5th short Alien film we’ve gotten before this special Alien day. Honestly, this one may be my favorite of the five. The atmosphere is good, the characters solid, and decent effects. I liked the touch with the full grown Alien at the end. It’s a really cool little movie I think true Alien fans will appreciate, may the gaming gods bring you glory.
The Nun is another movie from The Conjuring series that tells the story of, you guessed it, where the nun from The Conjuring 2 came from. Given how creepy she is this seems like it should be an awesome idea and concept. The problem is the movie is relegated to a needlessly convoluted story that bounces around and relies on jump scares for its horror as opposed to any real suspense or horror.
The movie starts in a cloistered castle with two nuns searching for something in a hurry and terrified. One is killed by something and the other hangs herself. Not long after a young man from the local village in Romania finds the nun and the Vatican sends a priest that is known as a miracle hunter and a soon to be nun to figure out if the place is still holy.
People in the town don’t speak of the place, and the man that found the nun, Frenchie, doesn’t want to go back but he basically wants to sleep with our soon to be nun Sister Irene sp he goes anyway because why not.
Soon after arriving weird things start happening, the nun Frenchie tossed in the ice house isn’t how he left her, Father Burke ends up buried alive somehow which somehow wasn’t the universal sign for leave now.
The story will also bounce around a ton and for no real reason. The blood of Jesus is also involved. The best part of the movie was the ending which ties in nicely with The Conjuring movies themselves and Frenchie himself being possessed and talked about in one of the classes taught by Warrens. This for me was the worst movie in a franchise I enjoy. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
As I do with most holidays, I just wanted to take a minute to wish you all a safe and happy Easter. Many of you will spend the day at church or with family eating and drinking and that is awesome, but remember when traveling to be a little extra careful and if you had a few too many to drink it’s better to stay where you are or call a cab. Also if you happen to be alone for the holidays and need someone to talk to, by all means, there are places to call or friends and family that love you. Let me know how you are spending your day, me and @torstenvblog are visiting his dad. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
As reported by Screen Rant James Gun and Suicide Squad is eyeing John Cena to take on a role in the movie. Obviously without knowing the role not much is known or can be said about it, but Cena has been making the switch over to acting for years and has found some success in comedies in recent years. With him joining Suicide Squad and The Rock playing Black Adam maybe we will get to see a superhero clash of 2 WWE stars in the future? Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
Game Informer Australia editor David Milner recently announced on Twitter that the Australian Game Informer which is owned by Eb and parent company Gamestop would be shut down. Gamestop hasn’t been doing well recently and this is the results and has stated it will be cutting cost and trying to improve profits. The American version of Game Informer will now be sold in Australian stores. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
Annabelle: Creation is a great example of a solid movie that is a horrible origin story that was never needed that I don’t think anyone asked for. The movie itself is perfectly fine. It involves a group of girls and their caretaker who happens to be a nun, being taken in by a doll maker, Sam Mullins and his wife Esther, as orphans. Years earlier they lost their 7-year-old daughter and they felt now is the time to open their home.
The movie starts off much like most, girls being girls running around the big house, picking on the little one, getting used to the place, being told not to go into a room and of course going into the room and unleashing a ghost. So maybe not so much girls being girls or even kids being kids but a movie being a movie.
From here it is a steady trip of things slowly escalating from bad to wore. The movie is rather newer so I don’t want to spoil things too much. The movie does a pretty excellent job of making things tense and suspenseful while not relying too much on cheesy jump scares and the little girl getting hit by a car is disturbing not for what it shows or does, but for what it doesn’t show and how it does it.
My issue comes when it comes time to explaining how Annabelle came to be in a doll. See this whole explanation takes place in about a 3-6 minute time period in the movie. After the explanation is done there is no real touching on it again either. There is also a twist ending that makes no real sense in the capacity of the franchise in my opinion. They just seemed to try to sneak an origin story and twist ending into a movie that didn’t need both and to me hurt the movie. Regardless it was a fun movie, best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
I’m pretty sure the reason I’m invested in this remake, much like many of us are since the epic reveal, boils down to two words: Mark Hamil. I was all smiling at the end hearing his version of Chucky and I think he’ll steal the show. I’m interested how Chucky can now control tech almost Watch Dogs style. Other than that, it looks decent but I have some fair hopes. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
