My top 10 non-horror

Image
So earlier today I posted my best of 2018 horror but it seems like I watched an open pallet of movies this year. And Documentary's seem to have lead the charge along with those Superheroes! No keep in mind I'm always behind in my movies (Dang kids and job) so things like Solo and Aquaman will hopefully make next years list. Ok, so let's get started.

I still recommend this movie to everybody! Check my review here.

RIP Mike "Beard Guy" Taylor

Image
I rarely post about someone leaving us here on earth but last nights news hit this family pretty hard. Mike "Beard Guy" Taylor, keyboardist and vocalist in Walk Off the Earth, has died, the band has confirmed. It's hard because as a family watching music videos on a Friday night we bumped into this band for the first time. We became instant fans and Beard Guy was by far a big reason for that, the man oozed cool.


"It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved brother and band member, Mike 'Beard Guy' Taylor. Mike had a love for life that was unmatched and a willingness to give that went beyond ordinary means. He passed peacefully from natural causes last night in his sleep. Our deepest sympathies are with his two children, whom he adored more than anything else in the world. We ask for privacy for his family in this trying time."

Walk off the Earth is a Canadian indie pop band, known for their well-crafted cover songs on YouTube…

The Best of 2018

Image
Ok so here you go the top horror movies I watched in 2018. Please note these are not just new tiles just the ones I watched and felt where the best of the best.

Number 10 
(Review here) Eebee is back in the Seventh in the franchise and they seem to get better as they go!
But I had to call it a tie with this one...

(Review here)  Was kind of hard not to include MicroWave massacre as it was also the highest viewed post of the year as well.

So crazy! This one stuck with me for a few weeks after!

I'm so glad I spent most of my year watching what people call classics!

Judge me all you want I really liked this movie. Anytime a horror flick can make you laugh and forget about the crap reality around you its a good flick in my book. Plus Thomas C Howell is pretty hot in this one.

I love Witches they are my favorite part of Halloween and when your favorite podcast Shock Waves talked about it I shot to t…

Pooka see, Pooka do, Pooka me, Pooka you

Pooka!
2018 | 1 Hr 23 Min | TV-MA | Horror | Hulu
Director: Nacho Vigalondo

Writer: Gerald Olson

Stars:  Nyasha Hatendi Latarsha Rose Jon Daly



A struggling actor takes on a seasonal holiday job as the mascot for the year's hottest new toy: Pooka. However, after putting the costume on, he develops two personalities - one for himself, and one for Pooka.


Holy Sh%t is there anything that Blumhouse can do wrong right now? With The Purge, Happy Death Day, Paranormal Activity and of course this year's huge hit Halloween everything seems to be going the right way for our favorite Hollywood studio! Pooka does a crazy job of wrapping itself around the Christmas Carol storyline that you just don't see it coming. 

And this Nacho guy who is he? The only thing that rings a bell on his resume is ABC's of Death but in my, mind Pooka should be his springboard! The way he takes this dark story and splashes color of red and blue driving you to end of the movie is downright brilliant! And …

Find out who you are and do it on purpose.

Dumplin'
2018 | 1 HR 50 Min | PG-13 | Comedy | Netflix
Director: Anne Fletcher
Writers:
Kristin Hahn
Julie Murphy

Stars:  Danielle Macdonald Jennifer Aniston  Odeya Rush 

Synopsis: Willowdean ('Dumplin'), the plus-size teenage daughter of a former beauty queen, signs up for her mom's Miss Teen Bluebonnet pageant as a protest that escalates when other contestants follow her footsteps, revolutionizing the pageant and their small Texas town.




Everyone is so busy talking about Netflix's Bird Box they just might be missing out on this tender coming of age flick Dumplin' or are they. With strong performances from Aniston and Danielle Macdonald can’t save this conventional pageant saga that seems to be centered around the music from Dolly Parton. In a house full of girls this was the movie of choice last night and even if the movie never really gets into second gear its message is important and not shoved down your throat.


Dumplin' is a big-hearted dramedy about a…

Are these the Worst Video Games of 2018?

Image
So earlier today I gave you my top five games for this year so now let us take a quick look at the worst. Three of these games we really looked forward to playing and they just fell short and one made me so mad I could not even talk about how I  wasted 30 bucks! So here you go...

Number 5


Oh man, this was a hard one I was so excited to play this old-school platformer. Sadly it fell short for me it was not the worst thing I played but one that was a disappointment. This 3D platformer was a bit lacking in challenge and variety. I do hope Super Lucky's Tale continues into the future as the world of video games is lacking in a new mascot.

Number 4


What is it that has gamers going insane over Fortnite? I will admit the Thanos season was fun but that was it for me. Between the media, overhype, and youtuber's this lame game has become this year's big deal. And those poor parents with kids that have fallen into addiction playing this game, man! I have heard some really scary stor…

My Top Video Games Played In 2018

Image
Wow, the end of 2018 drawers near and 2019 is ready to go! It's that time to take a look back on some of my favorite video games I played this year. This year I seemed to have played more games than usual logging in 42 new tiles yet picking my top 5 was pretty easy what was not easy ranking them one through five.

Number 5


Man what a crazy game Serial Cleaner turned out to be. This PC tile looks like a simple puzzle game but it is not! Drenched in a varnish of ‘70s retro stylings, from its funky soundtrack to its desaturated color palette, it’s incredibly aesthetically pleasing. This stealth game has you sneaking into a crime scene to clean up the blood, gather the evidence and bag the bodies. While the stealth mechanics are broadly similar to the cone-of-view Metal Gear Solid system; blunder into an enemy’s eye line and they’ll immediately pursue you. If they catch you, it’s instant death and back to the start of the level.


All though very frustrating for this simple gamer I woul…
