Child’s Play Creator Less Than Happy With New Chucky

Chucky-from-Childs-Play-reboot

Recently the Child’s Play Reboot started filming. and creator Don Mancini doesn’t seem to happy. You can see his Twitter post by clicking the link. He isn’t the only one tho. The rumored new plot also seems quite odd. The origin story itself has been completely wiped and been replaced with a guy killing himself after reprogramming it. The odd part of this is the original line of movies will still be going on with Don. See one studio, MGM, holds the rights to the original movie. Universal owns the rights to the sequel. This is how the Reboot can happen while the sequel can keep going.

Personally I am not looking forward to the reboot, but the sequels haven’t exactly been great recently either. We shall see tho, best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

The Witch 2015

The Witch (2015) is an odd film for me. It involves a family on a farm who have lost a son and is being tormented by a witch. As the movie goes on this family in the 1600’s becomes more and more paranoid.

I won’t get into to many specifics on the movie or its story because honestly the fun of this movie is deeply dependent on not knowing much about the story itself, and I worry by telling you too much I will spoil the experience. The acting is well done and as a period piece it is actually one of the best I have ever seen. As far as I can tell most of not all of ti was filmed using natural lighting or at lighting for that time such as candles. The clothing choices also seem to do a very good job of matching that as well.

The sound of it all is also rather nice, with the actors doing a fair job at talking in an older dialect of English. I do however have a few issues with the movie. First off the movie can only sort of be called a horror or thriller movie since it rarely attempts to do either of those things. There also wasn’t too much excitement to be had. The story was interesting, and the last 20 minutes or so was great but I would have liked a little more.

The movie itself however is only worth watching for certain people. I don’t mind a slow-paced period piece so for me it was a pretty good movie. The story was interesting and the religious zealousness was pretty well done. However, for those looking for a fast paced and exciting horror movie, this is not what you are seeking.

Supernatural Season 11

And here we are, season 11 of Supernatural. We are catching up fast guys, I may need a new show soon. This is the season where we get to see the showdown between Amara and Chuck. This can also be known a the Brother/Sister showdown between God and his sister.

The season is on and off in terms of excitement. In terms of lore and back story however there is a lot to unpack and its a great time to do it. This season also bounces back and forth between hunting regular monsters and the main story dealing with Amara herself.

You won’t run into the big G himself until about episode 20, from there things move pretty quick. I won’t spoil any of those things for you but that is where season 11 goes from on and off to simply amazing. At one point the end seems a bit meh only to discover it isn’t even the end which honestly I liked. This season tho definitely was an interesting one in terms of story. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Space Jam 2

Unfortunately for many the joke that Jordan is better than Lebron because Lebron never helped the Looney Tunes save the world is about to end. The long since rumored Space James 2 is no longer a rumor, but is a fact. According to Hollywood Reporter James and Ryan Coogler (director of Black Panther) will be setting out to make the world a better place, through basketball. Personally I am hoping for a Jordan cameo of some sort. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

The Death of Dead Rising 5

It was recently reported by Screen Rant that the Vancouver Capcom studio will be closing, and part of that closing will be taking Dead Rising 5 with it. The last iteration was met with mixed reviews and five seemed to have been meant to largely ignore its story. Sadly we now may never know, unless of course this zombie game somehow rises from the dead. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

It has been speculated for a while that Sony would be releasing a Classic version. Well that speculation can stop, it is official. Come this December, and for about $100 you can get 20 classic PlayStation games packed into a smaller version of this system including Final Fantasy 7 and Wild Arms. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Alien Contact: NASA Exposed

download

Every so often I like to check out a documentary and see how it goes. Alien Contact, while the info may or may not be various levels of accurate is very poorly made. Not from a CGI or voice acting point of view, those are perfectly fine. The problem for me really is about the first half of this hour-long documentary is talking about Nazi Germany.

After much talk of the occult in Germany and the false assumption that no UFO had been sighted or reported prior to that. We then movie on to what happened to the Nazi scientist after Hitler shot himself.

It isn’t until the last 15 minutes or so we even get to talking about NASA and it mostly focuses on the moon landing and Apollo missions. This is where it truly breaks down with mostly conspiracy theories and voice overs done by the same people who represent radio calls from numerous historic figures that really just destroy any possible credibility. I normally enjoy stuff like this but honestly I couldn’t enjoy this one. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
