Movie Review: Hubie Halloween (2020)

Julie Bowen, Adam Sandler and Kevin James star in this self evident drivel that is unwatchable. A man child is not liked. Ray Liotta lurks and bullies. An escaped mental patient lurks. Hubie is pointedly unusual. You can't understand Sandler's man child mumbling. This is set in Salem. Mean kids harass Sandler. This was very annoying and so inadequate with blatant disregard.

Best Lines:

“Suspiciously massive amount of eggs and toilet paper.”

“You went with Harley Quinn too?”

Control Z 1x03&1x04 + Adult Material (2020) 1x01 + 911: Lone Star 1x03 + The Twilight Zone 2x01


There is fanaticism, slander and no ethical standards. Luis is bullied and deeply unpopular. There are devastating moments and sexual and physical harassment. There are alienated and hurt people. People are severly impacted. Pink eye shadow is worn. Sofia is detached and remote. There is intimidation and an undercurrent of malice. The area is not an economic wasteland. There are petty bullies and a lot of negativity. There is an unfortunate impression made. Javier plays hero. There are resentful and aggressive yobs with vicious attiudes.

Teens are confrontational. This does not betray any nuance or thought processs. Sofia chats to Javier's dad via speaker phone. Sofia has a secret. There is no moral clarity and Sofia has aching loneliness and dread of the cuture. The thief tries to make money. The hacker provokes mischief and there are puzzling complexities. The thief lies and Gerry is insolent and a bully. Gerry gets away with his crap.

There is a fight due to rising resentment. There is fake blood and people are demoralised. Why isn't Gerry arrested for GBH? There is an inescapable conclusion. A love triangle develops. Luis ends up in a coma. The principle is useless. Sofia takes advantage of the comatose. The principle has a legacy of deficienices. Raul is abandoned by his parents. He's got a safe full of money.

Best Lines:

Pretty bad taste in men.”

“Dumping me in public.”

“2 thousand, is Gucci.”

“My son has no friends.”

“I just want to beat him up!”

“If your mom finds out, she'll never forgive you.”

“Don't play the victim here.”

“Why do you want to see 2 human beings fight?”

“Get hit by your daddy?”

“I don't understand what's happening.”

Night School

Sofia chews pills. She did self harm in the past. Gerry commited an action that cannot be undone. Raul plans a party for the entire school. Why isn't Gerry in jail for attempted murder? Gerry has useless parents. Gerry is expelled. Alex cries. Hipsters lurk. Raul's black eye has healed. 2 girls eat their lunch in the bathroom. Javier has a sister? Sofia gets a gift. Natalia is shunned.

Natalia is shunned some more. There are no momentous decisions. There are oft-controversial times. This does little to keep you engaged. The scourge that is young people annoys. People do disservices. Natalia has discord and division with her sister. There are consequential decisions and corrosive things happen. There is implicit criticism. There is no constructive engagement. There is a souring of relationships.

Sofia's mother is so stupid. This was not plausible. There is a bitter campaign and a rejection of a proposal. People have questionable reliability. Natalia is indiffernt to the consquences. There is publicly aired disagreement. This was an absolute mess. There is illusory and short lived happiness. Natalia is a moron. There is in your face aggression and casual defiance. There are destabilising events. Gerry shows up at at the party.

There is serious risk in this calamitous ep. This was a failure at several levels. Gerry starts another fight. There is no unity of purpose and there are deep misgivings. There is endless carping. Sofia dominates discussion almost to the exclusion of anyone else. There is an inexcusable point of crisis. Things are at an impasse. There is no urgent necessity. There is no adequate response. There is persistent rhetoric and Javier legs it. Sofia gets some from Raul. There are angry and resentful poeple and Sofia is in peril.

Best Lines:

“Goes way beyond a mistake.”

“Not a resentful person.”

“Watch out. A lot of wackos here.”

“Given him a lot of chances.”

“Your chicken is pretty cool.”

“Parties make me a little nervous.”

“You're nothing without me!”

“You're so selfish!”

“No one wants you here.”

“Look at us weird dude.”


This is the start of a four part saga about the UK porn industry. Sheridan Smith was supposed to be in this but isn't. Jolene Dollar is a legendary porn star. She's seen the industry go from a backroom industry to mainstream. Her eldest daughter is ashamed of her. She's a terrible mother, she overlooks the daughter's boyfriend sexually assaulting her in her house!

Jolene Dollar makes sex noises in a car wash and has a slutty keyring and drives a pink Audi. Rupert Everett plays the UK Hugh Hefner. Jolene has hooker nails and eyelashes. There is a pile of used condoms and Amy is a newcomer to the industry. Jolene works for Bang Cherry. Amy wants impending glories but things go badly for her.

Jolene Dollar is infamous. There is unsexy filming and talk of sleazy US porno guy. Amy is under pressure and injured. Nobody seems to care. Jolene Dollar has kids and one is unsure how many and who the fathers of them are. Jolene does cams filmed by her hubby. There is much working class yelling. Jolene ignores the sleazy boyfriend.

There are dreams and this was unsubtle and Jolene gets an STD in one of her eyes. The eldest daughter is teased at school with her mother's own brand sex toy. This was woefully inadequate. Amy ends up on crutches and attacked and a party goes awry thanks to the US perv. This was all poisonous images.

Best Lines:

“He's on my No List.”

“Once it's on the menu, it's not coming off.”

“Done a lot of stuff, just not that.”

“Eat pesto out of the jar.”

“Nicked my content!”

“It's mine and it's not for sale.”

“2001; storylines were still in fashion.”

“Waste of MDMA.”

Texas Proud

There is yelling. Rob Lowe's junkie son is a firefighter?!? Since when?!? Liv Tyler looks for her sister. The sister's boyfriend won't help. A yoga idiot falls off a balcony. This was not good.

Best Line:

“Only way out for you now is down.”

Meet In The Middle

Jimmi Simpson babbles and wails and does the whole Emmy reel crap. No.

Book Reviews: Go Go Power Rangers Volume Seven Necessary Evil + The Robber Bride

Go Go Power Rangers Volume Seven Necessary Evil

Time has been reset. Kim and Tommy kiss and 'Green With Evil' has been skipped over. This re-examines classic moments. Who was watching the teens kiss? Lord Zedd bothers and there is talk of the green candle. The MMPR did not treat Tommy like family. Lord I hate Jason. Matt annoys and Billy yells. Bulk and Skull bumble. The logic of this escapes me. This was okay

Best Lines:

“Try and look cool.”

“That's so not how buildings explode.”

“There'a giant rhinoceros monster, I'll take it on all by myself...with a tiny little dagger.”

“The first time I stepped in the Command Center...I was your enemy. But you saved me, you treated me like family,”

“The Dark Rangers were pointless. Untrained and unworthy.”

“Rita was a fool to create him the first place...”

“Throws a building-sized monster at you?”

“You do not want to mess with me today.”

“And mind control or not...he has tried to murder us.”

“Isn't he the victim here?”

“You picked the wrong garage, evil blue floaty guy!”

“Life gets not-normal again.”

“Tommy comes to town, then, two seconds later, there's a brand new Ranger on the team?”

“High up in a megazord trying not to focus on any buildings we may have crashed into.”

“Shadows of the enemies to come. Threats beyond Rita and Zedd. Threats not just to Earth, but...to everything. They're out there...watching. Waiting. And we have to stop them.”

Clay henchmeny things!”

“Look at that HD. Did they shoot this with a drone?”

“Another monster falls from the sky.”

“Make my wallet grow.”

The Robber Bride by Maragaret Atwood

From the author of 'The Handmaid's Tale' and 'Cat's Eye' comes this tale of Roz, Charis and Tony. All 3 of them were wounded by the mainipulative, theieving, lying, man stealing slut Zenia who one by one ensnared their sympathy, betrayed their trust and treated their men as loot. This was good.

Best Line:

“All Charis has on her side is an absence, it's the absence of evil; whereas Zenia has the real story.”

Undiscovered Country Issues 7&8 + Power Rangers Drakkon New Dawn Issue 2 Reviewed

Undiscovered Country Issue 7

There is exposition. What are cylclotrons and cyclotronic generators? So the US population did not know what was going to happen? What did happen and why? Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam and other US possessions were abandoned. Mmmm.

Best Lines:

“Allow every American to choose his or her fate.”

“The character of Uncle Sam was created during the Civil War. But weirdly, he was adopted by both sides so he was a conflicting persona.”

“Find and eradicate our agents. They are not backing down.”

“It does not seem likely to open up again at any point in the near future.”

Undiscovered Country Issue 8

They are dire warnings and people hold no affection for the characters. Why is time different? The gang end up in Unity City. There are more flashbacks and psycho-active nano-material. What became of Alaska? Mmmm.

Best Lines:

“I am so over all this cryptic bullsh*t.”

“What was once the United States Of America.”

“You don't want to put them through what's going to happen to this country.”

“That's the bargain you made.”

“Afraid the whole country had devolved into savagery.”

Power Rangers Drakkon New Dawn Issue 2

The Jason of the coinless universe isn't dead, sadly. The art is amateur hour. It's 10 years since 'Green With Evil' in that verse. What is a ranger sentry? This was okay. Jason is a violent nut. WTF is Dark Specter? Scorpina is from the regular verse and somehow she ended up in the coinless verse. This was not suprising or original. Jason has a real sense of rage.

Why haven't the Black and Yellow ranger reclaimed their power coins? A new threat does not provoke a unified response. Jason is a tool, incapable of even terse civility. Drakkon repurposed power coins, strayed way off the moral path and oversaw the slow death of Zordon's dream. A new evil threatens ruin while Drakkon's evil effects live on.

Jason is stultifying monotony and there is a bleaker proposition. Urgent appeals are ignored. Jason does somehting selfish. There is no visionary change. There are disturbances and undeniable chaos. Jason is hostile and Drakkon was the personification of infamy. Kim isn't exalted or sainted or commanding trust. Not is she sufficiently vigilant.

Best Lines:

“She's a space monster. We beat space monsters.”

“These people are no friends of ours.”

“You know it's probably a space creature, yes? From space?”

“And Drakkon, he's really...”

“Dead. Finally.”

Oh thank god.”

“Earth would be forfeit.”

“He had a failsafe to destroy whoever beat him.”

“I am not a imbecile. Unfortunately, neither was Drakkon--”

“What are you doing?”

“Uh...comforting you?”

“I hate it.”

“Should I stop?”


“I'd rather die than watch you dishonor the rangers' memory more than you already have.”

“You're just scared. Because Drakkon taught you to be.”

“Fire or six hilariously easy-to-kill teenagers.”

“Put me in a prison I could never escape.”

“”Teenagers with attiude,” as the fool was so fond of saying.”

“Lady Drakkon?”

“World-conquering space witch?”

“I served her murderer.”

“I've spent enough time in the company of fascists.”

“Insane space-god.”

“My friend isn't actually dead. He thinks I'm a fascist.”

I watched '25 Siblings & Me' about an annoying git named Oli who goes to the US to visit his donor half siblings and donor dad and ends up alienating them all with his horrible behaviour. Oli offended them all and has show off hangers. Who is filming all this? Oli squandered opportunities and hated snow and was sexist and dismissive toward his half sisters. Vegans eat avocados. Oli refuses to be polite and stop dressing like Nick Cave in bum hugging trousers. There were exhaustive SJW discssions and the half sisters were CAKED in make ip. Oli has no control or restraint and is adversarial and sends crazy text messages. Oli smokes and wears nail polish and is annoying. Why is he always wearing sunglasses? Oli's weird and gives food to homeless people in the street just for pique. Daley the biodad has unexplained motives. Oli's mums split.

Oli whines and smokes constantly and stomps off at a family reunion. All the donor siblings have Daley's intense green eyes. Oli rants at a half brother. He alienates everyone and won't accept responsibility and won't apologise and he has no affection. Another sibling shows up. Oli cuts off his siblings cos he is a selfish drama queen who does not deserve their concern.
