R.I.P Paul Walker

 PAUL WALKER 1973 - 2013

There are a lot of reports out there, and some may be false, but it is overwhelmingly seeming like Paul Walker has died in a car accident. The star of the Fast and Furious films lost his life this after noon. He was a passenger in a vehicle that collided with a tree and then exploded. He was 40 years old and is survived by a daughter, Meadow.

John Dies at the End

Rated: 1 Fang

Seen on: Netflx

I initially became interested in this book when I was creating my own book trailer. The trailer for the book that the movie was based on seemed funny and so I became interested in the book. I never got around to reading the book before the movie came out. Nor did I jump to go see the movie when it came out either. Glad I didn't on both counts. This movie was awful, plain and simple. It's a skip even on Nexflix. I am positive that the book was head an shoulders about the theatrical release, but it did not translate well on to the silver screen. The opening and end scenes were polar opposites and did not seem to connect the story at all, plus "spoiler alert" JOHN doesn't die at the end. The film was just plain weird and moved along at a snail's pace. I kept waiting and wanting more, but too much was left unexplained and/or not covered again. The film looked file as was the acting, so there is at least that, but that was all. Skip it, you won't miss a thing.

Rated: 3 Fangs

Seen at: Local Movie Theater

I really enjoyed Elysium, but I could not bring myself to give it 4 fangs. Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy the movie, but the story seemed to lack, something. I can't say for sure what that was. The plot moved at a descent click, and there were not real plot sinks that made me go, ugh, I have to think that it was the world itself, the elite living in space while the poor suffered on earth, while the whole time the residents of Elysium could help those on Earth but chose not to care. Jody Foster gave a lackluster performance as if she was just there for a paycheck. I have seen and expected better from her. On the reverse Sharlto Copely, gave a great performance, he was a complete psycho and I loved it.( He played Murdock in 2010's The A-Team) Matt Damon gave a worthy performance, going back a bit to his Bourne days, but I would not  hold out for a sequel.

Stake Land

Rating: 3 fangs

Seen: on Netflix

This film was definitely interesting to watch. It takes place in the near future after a vampire plague sweeps across the world. A vampire slayer who only goes by the name of Mister finds a young boy after his family (including an infant) has been killed by a vampire. The vampires in this movie drink blood but act more like zombies. So it was a weird mix of zombie/vampire monsters. They move like vampires, IE fast, but are basically undead mindless killing machines ala zombies. There are several types displayed like the Bezerkers that has an armored breastplate and must be killed by stabbing its brain at the back of the base of its head. Mister trains young Martin in the ways of killing the undead, as they head North to a place called New Eden. Along they way they pick up several stragglers, one of which is a nun played by Top Gun Star Kellie McGillis, although she is not recognizable as such.
The film is slow at times, but the story continues at a good pace, which allows for character development Although you never learn much about Mister, from his actions we can discern what type of man he is and what he must have lost/gone thru when the plague hit the world..
The plague is never explained, which is good, because it would have taken away from the story I felt. A sequel could work for this movie, but I doubt we will ever see one. It ends in the way it began, with Mister being a complete mystery to the viewer, and you know what, I was OK with that and you will be too.

Werewolf: The beast among us.

Rating: 4 Fangs!!!

Seen on: Netflix

This is a period piece, circa 19th century. 
What I liked the most about this film was the fluidness of it. I can usually spot the "bad guy" early but this film had several twists that kept me guess until the near end of the film. The "WHO" is the werewolf was written so well with so many distractions and false leads for the viewer that it made the whole film worthwhile. Some of the dialog was not dated to the time period, but it was minimal and unless you are a super stickler for such thing, you wont even notice.
I would highly recommend anyone that likes werewolf to give this little surprise a try. You will not be disappointed. .
