Book Reviews: Sadie + Empire Of Sand

Sadie by Courtney Summers

A true crime podcast looks into the murder of a white trash teen hellion and the disappearance of her elder sister. Add to this; white trash idiots, a loser mother and flashback chapters that follow the runaway on her quest to uncover societal deceptions and disquieting accusations. This perpetuates mediocrity. All the characters are unlikeable.

Empire Of Sand by Tasha Suri

This fantasy tome was all worthless vagueness. One feels undisguised distain for this tepidly received dreck.

Movie Reviews: Ungodly Acts+The Case Of The Poisoned Pen+Blood Rage+Maximum Overdrive

Ungodly Acts (2015)

A woman dies and a murder accusation is made. Did a cult leader control his flock to such an extent that one of them murdered his unloved and unwanted wife? This was an okay true story. It was however not genuine or heartfelt.


Best Lines:

“End time preparedness.”


“Prayer furnace to heat up the Second Coming.”


“Isolating his own wife from the group.”


~

Perry Mason: The Case Of The Poisoned Pen (1990)

David Warner is murdered. There is a trial. This was rubbish with clumsily handled race issues and someone just confesses to the murder. Perry Mason is really annoying.


Best Line:

“Makes his own trouble.”


~

Blood Rage (1987) aka Slasher aka Nightmare At Shadow Woods aka Complex

This much re-cut, much re-named horror stars Louis Lasser and has synth music, 70s attire, a cameo by Ted Raimi who lurks in a men's room and terribly deeply misleading and wrong things happen. There is nudity and one has an appalled reaction to this dreck.


A boy is framed for murder by his evil twin. 10 years pass and the evil twin has a vested interest in continuing his bad behaviour. There is sensational nastiness by the evil twin. There is no furious debate when the good twin escapes from the loony bin. There is a voiceover, bitterness, anger and unconscionable things happen.


Men wear tiny shorts. There is furious debate and tensions are not ratched up. The evil twin goes choppy-choppy. Is this a parody or not? It is hard to hell. This did not transfix public imagination. This has deep failings. A dude has a vehement reaction to stuff. This was made in 1983 and sat on the shelf for years.


It's Thanksgiving, the evil twin makes cranberry sauce jokes and is hilariously gleefully psychotic. The evil twin kills someone with a meat fork. There is a final twist ending regarding the good twin. This was BAD.


Best Lines:

“Also somewhat negative.”


“Not without worry.”


“My psychotic brother just escaped.”


“Don't worry about the gun.”


“First turned into a wacko.”


“Nature walk through the woods.”


“Want to get high?”


“Insane brother is here.”


“God that's horrible.”


“Ran away from his mental institution.”


“That isn't cranberry sauce.”

Maximum Overdrive (1986)

Based on the Stephen King short story 'Trucks' this stars Emilio Estevez, Pat Hingle, Laura Harringston and Yeardley Smith. There are chastened gasps as machines rebel against humanity due to a comet or something. The effects wear off or something eventually. This was ridiclious and 1980s looking. Society irrevocably changes and machine cause aggravation and social collapse.


Sexism is ignored. There are evil trucks and killer drink machines. A kid baseball player runs. Stuff blows up. There is hysteria. The trucks want the humans to pump gas. What about when the gas runs out? This was terrible. Read 'Trucks' instead.

To Light The Way To Bed

Land Of The Giants (1968-1970) 1x01&1x02+Babylon 5 3x20&3x21+Condor (2018-?) 1x01&1x02 Reviewed

The Crash

This has memorable cheesy opening credits, a kid actor and it was created by Irwin Allen. A shuttle heads for London. There are talk of powercells. They land but not in London. There are giants out there. A coward is cowardly. 2 people are sellotaped down and tormented by giants. A dog is in peril. This was unintentionally funny and fairly ludicrious. The giants have malign attentions and the situation is hopeless and this serves no narrative purpose whatsoever.


Best Lines:

“Solar turbulence area.”


“Tower clearance.”


“Something out there. I just hope it didn't see us.”


“Calling Spindrift.”


“This is the bottom of the barrell.”



Ghost Town
Chipper the dog is in peril. A giant pants over the heroes like a sex offender. The bad child actor is feared dead. This is not something profound. The heroes are trapped in a minature town.

Best Line:
"As American as pizza pie."


~
And The Rock Cried Out No Hiding Place

Telepaths are used as weapons. Did anyone ask? Is this voluntary? Londo plots against G'Kar and Refa. Religious leaders visit, again. A gospel choir sing. Sheridan is an insecure moronic lunatic. Delenn babytalks. Sheridan has a special war-room to oversee the Shadow War. Kosh is dead. Londo bullies Vir. Despite being cut off from Earth, Sheridan and co drink Ty Nant. Ivanova has poufy hair. Refa bullies Vir. There is talking and no inherent watchability.


Sheridan sees what no-one else does. Londo plots and shrugs off his part in the attack on the Narn homeworld. Refa dies as the gospel choir sing. Delenn unveils the White Star fleet. This narrative murk was entirely ill-advised.


Best Lines:

“Ugly rumours.”


“The last war.”


Shadow Dancing

Delenn whines and demands trust but lies. Sheridan gives orders. Piss off. Melissa Gilbert guest stars as Anna Sheridan. Franklin gets stabbed after ditching his duties to do some navel gazing. Sheridan goes through wives like other people go through underpants. There is sexism. Marcus loves Ivanova. She treats him like trash. Who's running the station when the senior staff are off following God Emperor Sheridan's wankfest? Delenn watches Sheridan sleep. WTF? Delenn knew Anna was alive all along! The bad kind of strife happens. Delenn is street meat.


~
What Loneliness

Loners, grifters, no talent schemers and people with bogus non-careers lurk. There is bitter mediocrity and callous deceptions by morally bankrupt people. This show is not a cultural fixation. Nasty pieces of trash lurk. Grim and unjust things happen. This was void of any depth. Max Irons of 'The White Queen' stars alongside William Hurt, Kristen Hager of 'Gotham' and 'Valemont', Mira Sorvino, Gage Graham-Arbuthnot, Kristoffer Polaha of 'Ringer', Brendan Fraser, Kate Vernon and Allison Hossack.


Sour faced people lurk. Vile nasty pieces of work lurk. A man looks into the abyss and regrets everything. There is no moral justice. There is a sustained level of malice. People look at a device. Somone is out there playing with weaponized plague. A hit squad kills people.


Best Lines:

“Denotates what?”


“All the good wars were already over.”


The Solution To All Problems

The opening credits debut. Joe (Max Irons) is on the run. People blather about kinetic training. Some dumb bint annoys. So much for fighting violent maniacs. Joe has been framed and disavowed by his employers. People put the hurt on others. This was universally loathed. There is an ethical lack. There are so many stupid women in this show. This was not a dynamic launch.


Best Lines:

“This is not who I am.”


“Underachieves at every stage.”


“Just more thems.”


“Smug sense of purpose.”


“Don't touch me ever.”


“I do not want to be here!”

“Then go!”

“I can't!”


“Can you stay alive till 5 o'clock?”
