Book Review: Stage Fright 👎

Stage Fight by Garrett Boatman

This 1988 horror has been reprinted. It is a tale set in then future 1990s that has a WTC mention, an Apple word processor, a belt buckle tape recorder and a future technology that can beam images into your mind and it is called dreamies. White jeans are worn and the plot is utterly incoherent. Bad stuff happens because of the dreamies. There is a drug and a man who goes nuts. This was badly written and makes no logical sense.

Best Lines:

“One of my fans. They're not the most stable people in the world.”

“A maniac dressed in a bird costume.”

“Buy a dozen hot radios one of the neighborhood junkies was selling for a few bucks appiece.”

“Beget everlasting suffering.”

“His scrotum shrinks at the horror.”

Movie Reviews: Enola Holmes +Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory+Visions+McQueen

Enola Holmes (2020)

This is based on a series of kids books about Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes' little sister who outwits them. Henry Cavill plays the great detective and there are no penny farthings. Enola rides a bike and don't get me started on the stupid Sherlock sister plot in 'Sherlock'.

The brothers left home and never visited or wrote and don't care about Enola. Where is Watson? Enola and her mother didn't have servants in their huge house apart from a cook? Enola is 16 and does direct addresses to camera. The mother goes missing. Mycroft and Sherlock show up and walk by Enola uncaring. They ignore her. Mycroft isn't fat and there is no carriage. Mycroft whines. The house is covered in ivy and the gardens are overgrown.

Mycroft and Sherlock insult their mother and do not look for her. Mycroft says it is his house and plans to send Enola to a finishing school run by Fiona Shaw. Enola gets a slap for not being dressed right or properly educated. Mycroft was cruel to his mother and Enola can't tolerate his world and is reprimanded.

Sherlock poses and acts like he is medicated. Mycroft is bitterly opposed to Enola and is vigorously awful to her and has acrimony. She's karate-adept and why was the mother always doing silly puzzles and clues? Enola finds a fistful of money and legs it.

There is pretty countryside and Enola falls in with a posh boy who fears attempted murder by a burk who was on 'Torchwood'. There is bad green screen and Mycroft is bitter as he's not as smart as Sherlock and Enola. Sherlock is told off for ditching his sister. Enola ends up in the great smoke which is fog and smoke free. The posh boy is a Viscount with a boy band haircut.

Enola ends up in a ratty lodging house and visits a tea room and a martial arts studio. People seem fine with Enola being abandoned in Victorian London. If Sherlock hasn't met John Watson yet than how is he famous? Their mother is a suffragette. Didn't Sherlock loathe the countryside? The posh boy has vile relatives and Lestrade shows up to rant. There is obvious ADR.

What is a new thinker? There are lots of ciphers and attempted murder and Enola winks at the camera. Mycroft (Sam Calafin) screams and sends Enola to that boarding school of horrors. Why are the students there dressed like puritans. Enola steals a car and what is the car running on? Where does she live after running away from the school and what is she living on? What about the Holmes estate? There is a sheep and the mother (Helena Bonham Carter) shows up to make lame excuses. The sky is too clear in London and it all fits together and this was good.

“For what?”

“Not entirely an idiot.”

“Hate every second of the rest of my life.”

“Obnoxious sort.”

Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory (2011)

They get out. Dull.

Visions (2015)

Isla Fisher, Jim Parsons, Anson Mount, Joanna Cassidy, Eva Longoria and John de Lanice slum it in this Blumhouse dreck. A couple move to a vineyard. Fisher has a helium voice and wears tiny shorts. This was ineffectual. She killed someone's baby in a car wreck. This comes back on her. She makes a friend who is nothing of the sort. There are weird events and no poverty pit for them. People have a disturbing tendency to elevate grievances.

Tthere is an ideological clevage point and an illusion of explanatory depth. I've no idea what is going on or why. Fisher looks suitably gloomy. She's emplifying concerns and things are made devastatingly clear. This was daft and inadequate and terrible and pretty disastrous and ghastly. The twist was obvious. It is a threatening, hostile time and there was a manipulation of loneliness and isolation.

There were tensions and antagonistic women. As well as frightening and hostile women. This went into precipitous decline. There was animosity and one abhorres this. There is a vicious attack and this was not compelling.

Best Lines:

“These wine people.”

“What if they're cooking crystal meth right next door?”

“Mommy sense.”

“Ruins behind the house.”

“That's right! It was me!!”

McQueen (2018)

This was a documentary about the designer. It showed his rise to fame and ill treatment of his alleged friend Isabella Blow. He was a whiny jerk and then he died. The end. This was dull and he deliberately manipulated others.

Biohackers 1x06 + 911: Lone Star (2020-?) 1x01 + Veronica Mars 4x06&4x07 Reviewed


Season 1 of this show comes to an end. There is no incredible uncertainty. Jasper has a lack of understanding. That's why he did an inflammatory act namely he committed an act of bio-terrorism on a train. Mia aka Emma is not sick due to her super immune system. Dr Petra lurks. There is a perfect storm of circumstances and psycho social problems.

Jasper was irate and had aggro and did this. There is psychological fatigue and no altruism. There is also no end in sight. Mia asks her bimbo roommates for help There is widespread gloom and psychological fatigue. Mia's idiot roommates are morons. There is anger, fear, conspiracy theories and dangerous anti-science ideas.

There is anger and upset and no collective creativity. There is no concept of low profile. Mia wrestles with destiny. There are modifications to DNA. Jasper has gone psycho and he and Mia fight. There is nobody pragmatic or sensible. The roommates are arrested and then they are not. There is intellectual fascism and horrible revelations. There is no resonance. Jasper did unpardonable acts out of rage and baleful ignorance.

The world has gone toxic. There are no moral values. Everything is for show. There is wokefishing and Mia curated herself. This was pure drivel. There is no enduring fascination. There is obstinance. This was sheer banality. There is a poisonous atmosphere and toxic divisions. Jasper after trying to strangle Niklas and committing an act of bio terror on a train, learns the doctor is bad. People have their own self image and moral vanity and malignanty.

The doctor throws Jasper under the bus. The largely unhappy Mia thought she was the botherer in chief. The doctor has no embarrassment about anything she has done. Is Mia still going to college? There is no loss, tragedy or emotion. Jasper somehow gets away and emails Mia info. Where is he? Isn't he a wanted terrorist? He threw away his future and source of treatment and for what?

Mia talks to a journlaist and is grabbed and ends up in white van with the doctor. Now what? Who's behind this? Is there a bigger threat or bad? There were misperceptions and tormentors and low morals and the coda is ominious. People were ego driven and there is a sinister social climate.

Best Line:

“Greater than you and your life.”

Biohackers, TV Series, 2019-2020 | Crew United

Biohackers ending explained: Examining that twisted Season 1 finale


So much bad cosmetic surgery on this show. Rob Lowe survived 9/11 and now he moves to Texas to rebuild a firehouse after a tragedy and get his junkie son away from drugs. He recruits various losers and crazies to rebuild the firehouse. Liv Tyler is an EMS with a missing sister. She bothers her brother in law.

“Toilet bomb.”

“You run a business out of a strip club.”

“V chip.”

“I'm standing at the urinal.”

Big Dick and his henchman have issues. Veronica and Keith have a theory. Pizza guy is bothered. Weevil saves the useless racist bitch Veronica. Pizza guy is mocked, weird real life parallels. Keith is done. Logan is back. Veronica is a ho. This was not good.

Best Lines:

“How low is the bar for you?”

“Worse than Fyre Festival.”

"I will run you over in the parking lot after your acquittal!"
