Today marks Alien’s Day!
LV-426…it all started 40 years ago…In deep space, the crew of the commercial starship Nostromo is awakened from their cryo-sleep capsules halfway through their journey home to investigate a distress call from an alien vessel. The terror begins when the crew encounters a nest of eggs inside the alien ship. An organism from inside an egg leaps out and attaches itself to one of the crew, causing him to fall into a coma and all hell ensues from there…

40 years in the making and I’m still a huge fan and lover of this series. I will continue to finish writing my fanfic stories and even create something based on this idea…
This movie was released in February of 2018. This was one of the many movies I wanted to see and do a small movie review on. After viewing this film, I had a variety of mixed feelings about the story and the characters that were involved.
The movie is based on Jeff VanderMeer’s best-selling Southern Reach Trilogy, Annihilation stars Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Tuva Novotny, and Oscar Issac.
This movie is definitely different from other sci-fi films I have seen recently. Based on the trailer I saw originally, I expected it to be some kind of horror movie with sci-fi elements. I was pleasantly surprised I didn’t get that. The movie is much more like a sci-fi/psychological thriller, where the story had some layers: at face value we have the main story with the alien and “the shimmer”, at a deeper level, the movie is a metaphor about self-destruction, and on an even deeper level, it’s a first-person narrative with clues making you wonder how much of it is true.
I personally didn’t like the music score for this film. Country music and a psychological thriller don’t really mesh together in my opinion. The beginning did feel a little slow at first, but it still worth a watch. Now I did say it wasn’t a horror movie but it does have some horrific scenes, though not typical: some scenes were just strangely and beautifully horrific.
This film is a visual treat, a unique take on alien invasion, creative environments and creatures, as well as profound and thought-provoking with an ending that is quite spectacular and puzzling at the same time.
I love showing my kids old school movies of my favs or something that inspired me and my husband growing up as kids. This week is spring break for my little ones. Since I’m working full time and my family will be doing different activities for the week…here are the movies I and my family will be watching till they go back to school on March 25th.
I will do my own personal review & have my kids guest post on which video is their favorite through their spring break…
1)The Rescuers Down Under
2)The Lion King
4)The Hunchback of Notre Dame
5) Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey
6) The Rocketeer
7) The Mighty Ducks
Overlord takes many different horror and war movie elements you’ve seen before and creates a mashup that is able to deliver some gory fun.
On the eve of D-Day, American paratroopers drop behind enemy lines to penetrate the walls of a fortified church and destroy a radio transmitter. As the soldiers approach their target, they soon begin to realize that there’s more going on in the Nazi-occupied village than a simple military operation. Making their way to an underground lab, the outnumbered men stumble upon a sinister experiment that forces them into a vicious battle against an army of the undead.
I must say, I’m happy to see my “Game of Thrones” alumni in something different (Pilou Asbaek who plays ‘Euron Greyjoy’ & Jacob Anderson who plays ‘Grey Worm’). During the movie, I noticed Jacob and yelled out “Look, its Grey Worm!” the moment my husband asked me which one (it was a dark movie and his accent is different) he ended up blowing up into pieces by a land mine. That’s when I turned to my husband and blurted “That one…”
I feel like you don’t have to be in the mood to watch a war period film to enjoy this film. This film does give an accurate attempt of WWII and Hitler’s experiments, but this film gave those accounts and add some crack to it. Some scenes were horrific that I ended up having nightmares about it.
Overall, this movie gets my approval. Great action, loved the character developments and the special effects were on point. I hope they somehow make a sequel to this movie.

“In my opinion, we can throw out that “because we are women is the reason our movie failed”. I’m clearing saying this now to Ms. Leslie Jones, the reason why your bombed was because your writers and director set you and your amazing comedic talent up for failure…”
