Movie Review: Dark Encounter (2019)

A girl disappears from her home, a year goes by. Aggressive men yell. Are aliens to blame? The angry father looks like Jenelle's vile husband from 'Teen Mom 2'! This was good. Stars move. 'Signs' is ripped off. Keeps you engaged. This was filmed in Yorkshire not the US, but everyone has US accents. The ending doesn't make much sense but this was entertaining.


Best Line:

“He'll end up hating you.”


“Looking like hell, with an axe?”


“Thanks for asking every so kindly.”


“You couldn't raise a loaf of bread.”


“Using me for spud gun target practice.”


“We got guns!”


“Something's happening. Something unnatural. Something evil”

Bloodlands (2021) 1x01 Reviewed

A 4 part BBC1 drama. There are accents, a cop and his daughter. A car is recovered from water. There is talk of Goliath – a mythical hitman from the past. There is exposition. The cop's wife disappeared and is presumed murdered by Goliath. There are 'Derry Girls' cast members in this. This tries to be super serious but is unintentionally hilarious.


Best Lines:

“Unsavoury at best.”


“Is your husband the type of men to keep secrets?”


“Last person to use it is long since dead.”


“Version of events that everyone chose to accept.”


“A priest?”

“And an IRA arms dealer.”


“Known only inside the police.”


“Smells like you're a 50 a day man.”

I am reading 'Blood And Money' – it's from 1976 and who is Radames? The author describes a photo of a child and says she saucily crossed her legs: WTF? I mean WTF was that? There is uncommented on casual racism, casual mention of slave owning, casual drink driving, casual homophobia, casual anti-semitism and yet this account of the sad death of Joan Robinson Hill is good.

“Her world was their shadow.”


“Get a job, any job.”

“Reality was not her constant companion.”


“Dangerous man with salacious intention.”


“Of the old tradition where wealthy young women could bring their horses and keep them at a campus stable.”


“Bulldozers had waiting lists.”


“Penurious.”


“Estranged from her compansionship.”


“A mind tormented by memories.”


“Collected grievances against him.”


“Slammed his Stetson on his head,”


“This being illegal, even in Houston.”

Book Review: Go Go Power Rangers Volume Eight

Tommy's without purpose, thug Jason plots and lies to all his 'friends' and Rita is punsihed for her crimes. Ninjor is mentioned and what are the uncharted regions? Zedd beats up Goldar and don't they ever go to school? Nobody is calm or rational. Tommy has disillusionment and resentment and is in the doldrums.

Jason is exasperating. TPTB make the show's seeming absurdity work. Jason dwells on the increasing irrelevance of what he's dedicated his life to, or something. If Zordon couldn't fix the Dragon Coin, how did Grace? Matt lurks. I hate him, Grace and Jason. We get a flashback to evil Tommy. This was good. Saba shows up and Tommy gets the white ranger powers.

Best Lines:
“Endings can be complicated.”

“Do you want me to help you assemble your secret spy team or not?”

“Your request could have drastic consequences.”

“What is done cannot be undone..”

“You loathsome cowering simpleston...”

“This is really weird.”

“I had my chance, and we both saw how that ended.”

“I once witnessed a star being born from a speck of dust.”

“Gifted with loyal compansions.”

“I have seen civilizations rise, only to fall and rise again...”

“Freed me from that. From doubt, compromise and indecision.”

“Willingly or not, you served the forces of evil once before...who is to say you won't again:”

“Someone who is the best of us.”

“Power brats.”

“His favorite ranger,”

“Could you be any more melodramatic about this all?”

“Looks like I'm gonna need a whole new wardrope.”

“Apologies for the theatrics,”

“This remade universe is not as it was.”

“I imagine all that kicking and flipping can work up quite the appetite.”
