Rings (2017)

download (5)

Having never seen the other movies I really didn’t know what to expect to be honest. I did her some not so flattering things and I have to admit I really don’t see them. The acting is fine, the story itself is pretty solid. A college professor sees a take and figures out that if he gets other people to watch it nobody dies. Using this tactic to attempt to figure out if souls actually exist and to save lives however things are bound to go wrong.

Of course things do go wrong, and that is when people start dying and things go from . I bad to a hell of a lot worse. The movie is far from perfect, and I am open to the idea that the others were just so much better this one seems worse, I don’t want to spoil to much but I did enjoy this one and would suggest giving it a fair chance. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

High School of the Dead

high school of the dead

I’m sure someone somewhere is rolling there eyes just at the title of this anime alone, because zombies are well…dead. Millions of these undead bastards have plagued our media for the past near 2 decades. There are gems but many suck and many just need to stop (I’m talking to you Walking Dead).

Basic premise of this anime: a random group of kids and the busty school nurse at a prestigious high school must band together to survive the zombie apocalypse. That is pretty much it. We never learn what caused the zombies, which I’m fine with, and we don’t even really know if the zombies were defeated at the end and the human race won, not just our heroes. I liked that too. Like many zombie films, there is a deeper meaning behind them and what I took away was the zombie apocalypse as a metaphor for the real world outside high school bleeding into the drama filled lives of these varied teens.

While not exceptional, it was a nice breath of fresh madness in a sub-genre played to death. It has fun characters you grow to care about and you do see them grow as the show continues. There is plenty of awesome kills and the animation is damn good. What stole my heart is the huge WTF factor at play, like a kid using his ex girlfriends boobs to stabilize his AK 47 during a firefight or the random moments you that make you laugh out WTF. I’m sure Savior had a blast reading my confused texts that night. My only real complaint is that I do wish there was more and that it does take a little bit to find it’s groove. I recommend this as a fun, crazy ass anime for horror fans and zombie fans. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

The Next Karate Kid (1994)

download (4)

The Next Karate Kid is the 4th and last of the original movies and the only one not to star Ralph Maccio. Mr Miyagi at a commemoration for WW2 soldiers Mr. Miyagi meets the widow of an old officer and gets to know her granddaughter.

The movie sounds good, but really it is just the story of an angry girl Mr. Miyagi tries to teach karate in order to help her deal with the loss of her parents. This in itself would be fine but many of the jokes in the movie are essentially about how he has no experience with girls and their problems. This isn’t on either actor, both Pat and Hillary Swank play their parts very well. I think the biggest issue was the movie was written with no real sense of direction. It has its moments and I don’t agree the movie is horrible, but it is the worst in the series. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Night Of the Living dead 3D (2006)

download (3)

Night of the Living Dead 3D is listed on Hulu as both a homage and re-imagining of the 1968 film. I actually went into this thinking hey maybe this will be fun. The good part, there is a brief nude scene. That is about the end of what I have to say good about the movie.

The acting is horrible, but in their defense it was supposed to be. Sadly the script was also horrible and that was not intentional. Someone actually thought this movie was a good idea. The story itself also takes a huge dump on the movie it is trying to pay homage to with some of the worst changes they could have gone through with, right down to most of the movie not even taking place in the house and the totally awful explanation that this whole thing started because the local crematoriums owner died and his son hated to burn the bodies. They also happened to be unlicensed so occasionally people would pay them to burn other medical waste. This resulted in the dead coming back to life. I am not even kidding, that is how this all happened. The movie never actually becomes good or even really worth watching. Skip this one, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

The Karate Kid 3 (1989)

download (2)

Karate Kid 3 is viewed by most as the worst of the originals staring Daniel, and its not hard to see why. While it was nice to see Johnny make a come back his quest for revenge leaves much to be desired as does his assistance from a seemingly random business man and Vietnam war vet that coincidentally owns a toxic waste disposal company.

Don’t get me wrong the movie isn’t a train wreck, and if all you are after is to see some karate action and a small story this will fill the gap, but I have actually met many people that forget this movie exist or have never even seen it. So don’t be that person, go check it out. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
