St. Agatha (2018)

This is another one of those movies I regret watching. Mary who is pregnant runs away to a convent for help in the 1950s. These nuns, however, are psychotic. They are abusive, fanatical and even worse, those aren’t their worst traits.

The movie is also about an hour and 25 minutes of pure boredom followed by 20 minutes of an interesting horror movie. Aside from that, it is just a long slow ride to find out pretty much exactly what you suspected the entire time anyway. There aren’t any real twist and turns or surprises to be found here.

That isn’t to say the movie is purely bad. The acting is well done and as far as period pieces go it was well done, even the telephone they show looks like it was ripped right out of the time period. The problem is the story itself is just honestly, not fun to watch.

After all this tho I can honestly say I won’t deter you guys from watching the movie. This is one of those films I feel like just because I don’t like it doesn’t mean you guys won’t. So give it a shot, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Dave Chappelle: Sticks and Stones

Dave Chappelle’s latest stand up has drawn some fire in case any of you haven’t noticed. People are pretty pissed at some of the stuff he said. It even currently has a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes as I write this. Truthfully after watching it, I get why people are pissed. They don’t like having stuff pointed out to them that makes them uncomfortable, and they certainly don’t like their faults pointed out.

He attacks things such as Michael Jackson and R.Kelly and even takes a swing at cancel culture. For those that don’t know that is the practice of latching on to something someone did 15 or 20 years ago and trying to destroy their entire life. Sometimes it is even something minor that could be an honest mistake.

Nobody, however, is safe from his jokes, not white people or black and certainly not himself. This stand up was funny, but I do understand why people are upset because he does an excellent job at pointing out how a lot of what is going on is wrong or messed up. So go, enjoy it, be offended and have a few laughs. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Sandwich?: the Ultimate Inquisition

sandwich

Here we come to another bone chilling look into the human mind full of twists, turns, and melodrama…oh and sandwiches. People like sandwiches.

Once again Billy Kraser, author of such short humor books as Sticks:A tool in Time , Stones: The Eternal Instrument , and Plenty of Cones: Universal Utilities , gives us another quick read sure for a few good laughs because, well, you just sat down and read a book pondering about the nature of sandwiches and that is some absurd shit. As I’ve said for the other books in this series, the humor isn’t for everyone and many will call it dumb but I always enjoy a good laugh so I recommend giving it a read and supporting a new author by dropping a link to this book and Billy’s GoFundMe for his new project. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

1st Summoning (2018)

1st summoning is a movie about a group of filmmakers investigating a town and the rumors that if on October 6th at exactly midnight if you perform a specific ritual you can get an answer to any question you want, for a price. So they pack their gear, hop in their camper and drive there, interview some town members and a priest and head to the warehouse.

The issue is, the movie sucked. There is no nice way of saying it. The movie struggled between trying to be a sort of mockumentary and a legitimate movie about them making one.  The characters themselves make no damn sense, the priest is creepy as hell and sets the plot up nicely but then he is just gone. The one female character is basically made out to be kind of a slut because she dated two of the 3 guys in the group. She constantly disagrees with the idiotic ideas they have, only to do it herself anyway.

The movie is also boring for 90% only to get exciting at the very end, and then never be explained how or why things happened. There is also a necklace that again, never explained in any capacity. There may or may not be a demonic element, or it could just be human interference. You are just left to figure it out with no real info and for no real reasoning. I was actually glad this movie ended. There is no real reason to watch this, Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Underwater trailer 1

Underwater looks to be one of those movie premises I’m kind of surprised it’s taken this long to come up with. It does look really cool though and I found myself curious what the creatures will look like. I did a strong Alien / Descent vibe, especially during the credits which kind of bugged me a little. It does look interesting and I do want to check it out. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

 

Plenty of Cones: Universal Utilities

We come to the thrilling end of Billy Kraser’s “Earth’s Instruments” trilogy and what mind blowing climx do we have to look forward to from the groundbreaking author of Sticks:A tool in Time and Stones: The Eternal Instrument . Will there be an epic battle for the fate of the universe? Will there be betrayal, murder, or the definitive answer to a love triangle?

The answer is…cones.

Yes, the final installment of this trilogy involves cones in our everyday life; my favorite cone is definitely a waffle cone, mm. As the rest of the series goes, it’s a fun, absurd, quick read that will make you laugh because..well it’s pretty insane to say you read a series about sticks, stones, and plenty of cones.  It’s worth a read as is the rest of the series and it’s well worth a read.

As I did in my review for Stones, I’m also posting a link for Billy’s GoFundMe for his new project. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Alien: Covenant “Last Signs of Life”

I admit I’m pretty surprised this came out but all the same happy it did. While many of the 40th anniversary Alien fan films were great in there own right, none of them dealt with the prequel material. David’s Lab was one of my favorite pieces of Alien: Covenant . Recreating the look and vibe of the lab was done really well and I like the use of score and music. I think Alien fans will appreciate this little film. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
