Old shows, new shows, my shows

Shows that we are waiting for the next season, or shows that we are waiting for the premiere's.

Supernatural Season 9 Finale

OMG. I don’t know what to say. I don’t want to give anything away if you haven’t watched it yet, so be warned. Like usual, Supernatural as to take off in a way you didn’t expect. First with the mark of Cain being transferred to Dean and the Angel that went into Sam becoming brain washed by Metatron to kill people, like Kevin.Well I figured the point of the mark of Cain was for Dean to kill Abaddon, which he did, and then once Abaddon is dead then he would move on to killing Metatron and that would be the finale.

 Well the show down happened but instead of Dean saving the world and killing Metatron, Metatron stabbed Dean in the chest with one of the Angel Blades. I think I gasped louder than I have before with Supernatural then I waited, assuming that Cas was on the way. But he didn’t show up and Dean died in Sammie’s arms. I was shocked I didn’t start crying, but for once I was composed, lol. Normally that’s the cliff hanger but not this time, the show continued. 

At the end it shows Dean lying dead on a bed and Crowley comes popping in. Talking to Dean Crowley tells him that he wasn’t expecting this to happen to Dean but at the same time he isn’t shocked, then he started telling Dean to open his eyes. Wait a minute, he’s dead, he can’t open his eyes. OH YES HE CAN. In the last second Dean opens his eyes to reveal, black Demon eyes.

I know that Supernatural is going to be back this fall, and it is going onto it’s 10th Season, and I love the show but really when is this going to end. I remember them saying they were going to end the season after I think Season 5 or 6, I’m just having a brain fart right now and now we’re going on to the 10th season. I enjoy it, I love it, but I don’t want to see become stupid. We’ve already done Demons; Angels; Lucifer; Lilith; Metatron; Mark of Cain; The four horsemen of the Apocolypse. What else is there??

We will see this fall.

Does anybody else's tear ducts swell the moment they see this and the song Carry on my wayward son by Kansas starts, mine do, every single season lol

Witches of East End (reruns leading up to July 6th @9pm on Lifetime)

Promo 1

Promo 2

I don’t know how popular this show has become since it airs on a small channel called Lifetime, but I love it. It’s like Charmed, just an updated version with only two sisters not three. I completely recommend this show if you love those guilty pleasures shows, like Pretty Little Liars (Yup that is mine). I’m not sure what to expect with the upcoming season but I know I can’t wait.

This show is also based on the book The Witches of East End by Melissa de la Cruz. I have not read it myself, so I don’t know how true to the book it is but it is on my list to read.

Bitten (reruns are currently playing on Space and Syfy)

So Bitten has just been picked up from Space and now Syfy for the second season. I follow Kelley Armstrong (the author who wrote the books that the show is based on) and she or her assistant wrote that after all the feedback from the fans about the first season they are going to follow more closely to the books for the second season which is based on the second book in The Women of the Otherworld series called Stolen. In Stolen Elena is kidnapped and imprisoned in a prison for supernaturals where she meets a young witch named Savannah. Savannah is a very powerful witch but there is something else about her. I’m not going to give it away, lol. Well as Clay and the other remaining pack members try to find Elena she takes things into her own hands trying to escape taking Savannah with her.
So we will see. They haven’t given a Season 2 premiere date but I’m expecting early 2015.

Penny Dreadful (Showtime Sunday’s @10pm)

Well I just happened by chance to come across the trailer for this new show on Showtime and wow. It looks dark and creepy and it’s got all the good things supernatural shows have. Frankenstein and his monster, vampires, séances, Dorian Gray and a clairvoyant front runner Eva Green. I have never been a big fan of hers I always thought she looked weird and there was just something about her I didn’t like and that was until 300 – Rise of an Empire. She rocked it as the strong, cut throat leader Artemisia and now as Vanessa Ives in Penny Dreadful she’s great at bringing the psychic creepiness that some psychics can bring.

 I’m only three episodes in and so far so good. Also I forgot to add two things (1) Josh Hartnett is back playing an American gunslinger, where has he been all this time, and (2) Billie Piper playing Brona Croft, for those who don’t know Billie, she played Rose in Doctor Who and was and still is my favourite companion of the Doctor.

Give this show a shot, it looks promising.

Salem (Sunday nights @10pm on Space)

WGN’s first attempt at a scripted show, Salem brings Shane West back to the small screen. When I looked into this show after seeing the first trailer on Space I thought hmmm; a different take on the Salem Witch trials, this looks promising.

I watched the first episode a day after it premiere, thank you PVR. And I was shocked to see Shane West, but truthfully that intrigued me more. I thought the premise of having the witches in control in Salem was an interesting take. The witch in control Mary Sibley uses her powers of manipulation to control who is outed as a witch. It’s crazy to see that all they have to do is point a finger and saw someone is a witch and that’s it, they are hung, burnt or whatever. I’m interested in to see where they go with this. Stay tuned

 Dominion (starting June 19th @ 9pm on Syfy)

Syfy has decided to take the movie Legion and make that into a TV show. I loved the movie and I’m interested in the possibility of the show but I’m not sure.

 Apparently this takes place after the movie, when Arch Angel Gabriel rages war against the humans with Angel Michael (was played by Paul Bettany in the movie) stays fighting for the humans. 

We will have to see how this goes???

The Strain (July 13th @ 10 on FX)

Now this one I’m really looking forward to. This from Guillermo del Toro so it’s gotta be good right?? Well we’ll see. This show is about vampires, not sparkly vampires, murderous, blood hungry vampires. 

Perfect. In this show there is a breakout of vampirism and how the CDC is trying to fix it. 

I think this will be interesting. There is nothing wrong with suave vampires like Miles (from my novel Pawn of The Lilly Reed Series) and Louis from Interview with a Vampire. But I do love blood thirsty vampires too. Can’t wait to check this show out.!!!

Well if there any shows that I forgot, or bypassed, please leave me a note and I will check it out.

X-Men - Days of Future Past movie review

X-Men - Days of Future Past

Okay so I have been so super pumped for this movie since I saw the first trailer. I have loved all the previous X-Men movies and I am an old school fan, as in watching the cartoons as a child. My favourite character is Gambit and unfortunately he was not in this movie.

This movie as promising things about it. Having the younger and older versions of Magneto and Professor X would be great but... I don't know. I enjoyed the movie, I just didn't love it. But what I did love was Evan Peters as Quicksilver. He was just hilarious.

The premise of the movie is that the mutants are being hunted to extinction by the Sentinels, who were created by Bolivar Trask. The Sentinels start taking out the mutants and any humans who help the mutants. Knowing that they cannot win this war they decide to send Wolverine's consciousness back to his younger self in the 70's. They think that because Mystique kills Bolivar Trask and that starts the Sentinel program, so if they stop her from killing him that the Sentinel's never get made. Wolverine starts with Professor X and Beast, persuading them of what needs to be done the next they have to break out Magneto who is imprisoned underneath the pentagon, well Wolverine knew the only person who could break him out was Quicksilver. The escape was great then off they went to track down Mystique.After numerous attempting at trying to persuade her Magneto decides to take things into his own hands, so that means him and Professor X are back to being enemies again.

As this is happening in the past, the mutants in the future, Storm, Colossus, Kitty Pryde, Iceman, Bishop, Blink and the older versions of Magneto and Prof X are hiding from the Sentinel's who are heading their way. You also find out that Bolivar Trask uses Mystique's DNA and using it in the Sentinel's allow them to adapt to their enemies, which makes them harder to kill. 

I don't want to give the ending away but things do get worked out. And you end up seeing faces that you thought you would never see again.

 Yearbook photo time

Starting to love JL as Mystique - Do Not Move!

This might sting a little

Yes I am Magneto, you should bow to my greatness. Plus I'm super hot :)

I don't really understand her gift but it looks cool

The A-Team

Will somebody just kill him already

Sentinel, future

Sentinel, past

The boys are back in town!! 

Don't worry guys, I got this.

Just die already

So overall, it was good, not the best X-Men movie I've ever seen but it was still good. 

Godzilla Movie Review


Okay so the trailers for this movie have looked pretty awesome but I have seen a ton of trailers that the movie looks promising then it blows. Well this is not one of them. I was iffy due to the last Godzilla movie, the Matthew Broderick one, was kind of bad. And I wasn't sure what to expect but damn. I could not rip my eyes from the screen, even watching it at our local theatre with it's crappy ass 3D glasses I couldn't stop watching it. It just sucks you right in. At the end of the movie I looked to my left at my friend who I with, and said 'We should just stay and watch it again.' It was that good.
I was expecting the same premise of Godzilla coming to America or wherever and destroying the city. But this was different. Godzilla is actually the good guy. He realized that the two Muto's were destroying there way across countries trying to meet up to make more Muto's and that was when Godzilla awakened. To keep the balance in the world he must destroy the Muto's and he does while the military try to kill all three of them.
The special effects were good, the actors were good, I think overall a great movie. Probably one of the best so far this year.
Wow Kick Ass, you grew up

 Together at last!!

I don't think it's a submarine 

It's on the move 

It's bird, it's a plane, it's Superman, nope it's a Muto 

Mama Muto on the move

I have never seen a more visually appealing fall from the heavens 

Hold on this might get a little wet. 

Roar!!!!!! Do not fuck with Godzilla

So peeps, if you haven't watched it yet, get out there and do it. If you have, let me know what you think?

Movie Review - The Amazing Spider-man 2

Movie Review - The Amazing Spider-man 2

So for this movie I got to experience my first IMAX 3D movie. I live in a little town that has a small theatre, 6 screens I think and 2 are only equipped with 3D, but not good 3D, crappy 3D. The glasses are huge and the lenses are tiny so watching 3D there is not enjoyable. So that is why I/We go out of town, better screens, better 3D, comfier seats. 

Okay so the movie was okay. I'm a Spider-man fan but I am not familiar with the whole Amazing Spider-man story, just the regular Spider-man. I know that the characters are somewhat similar, Aunt May, Harry Osbourn but in The Amazing Spiderman, Peter's love interest is Gwen Stacy not Mary-Jane Watson. I always felt the Spider-man movies with Toby Maguire were comparable to the Batman movies from the 90's, kind of cartoony and entertaining. Now I will admit I did not go to the movies to watch the first Amazing Spider-man. I was hesitant about Andrew Garfield as Spidey, but by the end of the second movie I'm starting to like him more and more, he just has that awkward thing about him, he kind of reminds me of a younger Matt Smith from Doctor Who.

The movie was entertaining and I loved Electro, I don't know if I enjoyed Jamie Fox as Electro but the character was pretty cool, all the special effects were pretty crazy and watching it on the IMAX screen I think made a huge difference. I think they should have left it with only one villain but they had to introduce two more and by doing that they left it open for the next movie. 

Peter and Harry, or is that a young Leo Dicaprio, kinda looks like it

He's not a gold digger but he's a little obsessed with Spidey

Can you feel the electricity in the air?

Hey Gwen, watch your landing

Hey is that you Paul Giamatti?

There you are Green Goblin

So overall if you are a Spider-man fan, watch it, you'll probably enjoy it. If you aren't a Spidey fan check it our for the awesome special effects. It's not the best movie I've seen lately, Captain America The Winter Soldier, but it's a good comic book movie.
