I know I have said I would be updating my art portfolio and would be posting more of my artwork. But with my full-time job, kids starting their summer vacation and working on my novel, along with writing for Coffee House Writers, I have been putting my illustration projects on the back burner.
I have a few art pieces being slowly made but they are nowhere from being complete. In two weeks, I will be taking my summer week vacation starting June 17th. I’m going to take this time to get some new art supplies and create some pieces.
Miss Ghoul Inc. isn’t down and out…
While racing toward the town of Red Rock in post-Civil War Wyoming, bounty hunter John “The Hangman” Ruth (Kurt Russell) and his fugitive prisoner (Jennifer Jason Leigh) encounter another bounty hunter (Samuel L. Jackson) and a man who claims to be a sheriff. Hoping to find shelter from a blizzard, the group travels to a stagecoach stopover located on a mountain pass. Greeted there by four strangers, the eight travelers soon learn that they may not make it to their destination after all.
This was a movie that I delayed watching for years just so I can find the right time to enjoy it. I have to say, I shouldn’t have delayed this masterpiece.
This movie takes places in modern times. Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he never could have imagined.
This is every interracial couple’s nightmare. Going over to your potential in-law’s house to find out not only are they racist but potential psycho killers. It’s an interesting and disturbing film about race. GET OUT was fun to watch, with scenes jumping from scary, to funny and also to being emotional. Jordan brings new life to the horror/suspences genre. I really do highly recommend this film!
I got to see this movie on a Saturday afternoon back in April of 2017…now normally I leave watching movies like this during the evening so I can have some time to really digest the movie the next day…I should have done that in the first place.
Brimstone is a 2016-2017 western thriller film written and directed by Martin Koolhoven, starring Dakota Fanning, Guy Pearce, Kit Harington, and Carice van Houten. The story follows Dakota Fanning’s character Liz in four gut-wrenching chapters. You see how Liz must fight to keep herself and her family safe, but also see the horrors Liz had been through.
I’m not all great with western type movies but this one will leave you really messed up in the head for days to come (but in a very good way). There is not one cast member who didn’t do an outstanding job. You couldn’t get attached to a character for long as each character you will feel in your heart and soul as you see them develop on screen.
Even with such a short screen time, Kit Harington did an amazing job with his character and southern accent. Plus, kudos to him on learning that accent in 24 hours instead of the usual months you must prepare for.
I do highly recommend this movie. But I must warn the subjects of this movie are heavily on pedophilia and rape. If this bothers or triggers you, I advise you to not watch this movie. But if you can stomach these topics then you won’t be disappointed.
I also advise after the movie to watch some cartoons or a marathon of Tom & Jerry, because trusts me you will need that…and leave your lights on while you’re at it…
