Movie Reviews: Cell + The Ghoul + King Kong Lives + Matinee

Cell (2016)
John Cusack and Samuel L Jackson star in this bland adaptation of a bland Stephen King novel. A phone signal causes humans to become feral savages. The few unaffected try to survive. The ending is bizarre and what happened to Cusack’s lovely fluffy white pet cat?

~
The Ghoul (2016)
A cop goes undercover as the patient of a shrink who may be linked to a murder. There is talk of magic and this is all very odd. Are 2 shrinks’ evil witches who time loops to be immortal and is the hero doomed no matter what? This is okay micro-budget horror.

~
King Kong Lives (1986)
Linda Hamilton stars in this sucky sequel to the 1976 remake. How could Kong get a heart transplant? From what? What do they use for blood? Hamilton plays a heart surgeon. Kong and his mate escape. Where did the female come from? King Kong becomes a daddy and then he dies. Lady Kong and Baby Kong live in a wildlife preserve.

~
Matinee (1993)
John Goodman and Cathy Moriarty star in a tale of social cooperation. This was terrible indeed. The Cuban Missile Crisis kicks off. There is sap and bad acting.

Best Line:
"Throwing up your own organs!"
