Never Let Me Go (2010)

This sci-fi, romance, drama movie was pretty depressing. It is a story about a group of kids who, “As children, Ruth, Kathy and Tommy, spend their childhood at a seemingly idyllic English boarding school. As they grow into young adults, they find that they have to come to terms with the strength of the love they feel for each other, while preparing themselves for the haunting reality that awaits them.”  The reality is that these kids were clones raised to give their organs to their host counterparts. It was cool to see Andrew Garfield from the Facebook movie and the new Spiderman movie. He did a great job in this movie too playing opposite to that British actress, Carey Mulligan. If you watch this movie you will feel a little depressed at the ending so be prepared!

The Newsroom (Season 1, Episode 10)

This week’s episode is called “The Greater Fool” and in it “Mac is shaken by a potentially devastating revelation from gossip columnist Nina Howard. Meanwhile, Sloan mulls a new job opportunity; Neal’s Internet alias could prevent a catastrophe; and Will, Mac and Charlie confront Leona and Reese during a volatile lunch meeting.” It was sad to see that Jim and Maggie could not be together in this season finale. Also, the show goes a little too far with it’s liberal media slant when Mac calls the Tea Party the American Taliban.

Grimm (Season 2, Episode 3)

In this episode called “Bad Moon Rising”,  Nick helps Hank’s old friend track down his daughter and tries to cope with Juliette’s amnesia. We meet Coyoti’s in this episode who don’t like it when someone leaves the pack.  Also, in this episode Hank thinks he is going crazy because he has been seeing the creatures transform.  When Nick finally tells him the truth about the creatures and him being a Grimm, Hank is relieved that he is not going crazy.  We also are bummed to see that Juliette actually remembers everybody except Hank. Hopefully, her memory will improve.

True Blood (Season 5, Episode 6)

This episode of True Blood is called “Hopeless”. In this episode “The aftermath at the asylum has Sookie filled with dread. The Authority retrieve Bill and Eric. Pam gets involved when Tara’s actions lead to a fight. After receiving an alarming message from Jesus, Ruby Jean gets a visit from Lafayette. Terry thinks a curse is to blame for his predicament. Sam lends Andy a hand with an investigation. Alcide faces up to J.D. Roman reveals his plans for Russell”.  Just when we thing Russell will be executed the tables are turned. Sokie and Jason also enter the wild fairy night club as they try to get information about the vampire that killed their parents. Also Hoyt is now a regular fang banger hanging out at the Vampire bar.

Breaking Bad (Season 5, Episode 7)

In this week’s episode called “Say My Name”, Walter has finally gone too far.  When we look back at this series, we can point to this episode as when Walter’s has completely gone over the edge to the dark side. Even though he seemed shocked over his action to kill Mike, he doesn’t show any regret. It is hard to imagine what will be in store for us in next week’s finale.

Martyrs (2008)

Just spent the last  hour and forty minutes watching one of the most brutal horror thrillers that I have ever seen. It was the subtitled 2008 movie called Martyrs.  The movie storyline is “Fifteen years after a horrifying experience of abduction and prolonged torture, Lucie embarks on a bloody quest for revenge against her oppressors. Along with her childhood friend, Anna, who also suffered abuse, she quickly descends, without hope, into madness and her own delusions. Anna, left on her own begins to re-experience what Lucie did when she was only twelve years old”.  The brutal torture scenes will make your skin crawl and you will be wanting the movie to end so you and the girl wont have to endure any more abuse.

Grimm (Season 2, Episodes 1 & 2)

Watched the first two episodes of season two of Grimm. In the “ The Bad Teeth” episode, “Nick copes with the return of his presumed dead mother while racing to find a cure for comatose Juliette. Meanwhile, a new horrifying Wesen arrives inPortland with one target in mind.” And in “The Kiss” we find that “as Nick and his mother continue to battle the Mauvais Dentes, Monroe and Rosalee fight against the clock to save Juliette”.  The creature Wesen was a scary villain with long fangs that he used to kill and mutilate innocent people and Juliette got a kiss from a pure man that brings her out of her coma. Unfortunately, the cliff hanger is that she does not remember her boyfriend Nick.

Monsters (2010)

We enjoyed the 2010 sci fi thriller Monsters tonight. We watched it because it was directed by Gareth Edwards who is directing the new Godzilla movie. The story line written by Annon on IMBD is: “Six years ago NASA discovered the possibility of alien life within our solar system. A probe was launched to collect samples, but crashed upon re-entry over Central America. Soon after, new life form began to appear and half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain “the creatures”…… Our story begins when a US journalist agrees to escort a shaken tourist through the infected zone in Mexico to the safety of the US border.”  You will enjoy this low budget but effective monster movie that is presented in such a way that it is almost believable.

Fallen (1998)

Tonight we watched Fallen, the 1998 supernatural thriller directed by Gregory Hoblit.  This movie had an excellent cast that included Denzel Washington, John Goodman and Donald Sutherland.  The storyline is “Det. John Hobbes is convinced that when killer Edgar Reese is executed, all of his troubles are over. But when people he knows and people on the street start to sing the same tune that Reese sang in the gas chamber, and those same people taunt him, he is told that maybe the cursed fallen angel Azazel is behind it all. Azazel is cursed to roam the Earth without a form, and he can switch bodies by any contact, making him hard to track. When Hobbes is forced to kill a man possessed by Azazel, he must clear his name while protecting his family and others from the evil, vengeful Azazel.”  This is an suspenseful movie with quite the twist at the end. If you have never seen it, put it in your Netflix’s queue.

Breaking Bad & Newsroom

The Breaking Bad episode tonight was called “Buyout” and it was again one of the best hours you could spend watching Television this week.  Watching them break apart and place the kid’s motorbike parts in the drum and pour in the acid was creepy enough but then when they dig through the dirt in the truck and uncover the body of the boy and then set up another drum, the creepiness is notched up to a new level. Also, the dinner scene was awesome with Jesse trying to break the tension with conversation.  I am glad that Walter is not taking the buyout of the chemical and wants to continue building his empire since he has ruined his family life anyway.

The Newsroom episode tonight was called “The Blackout Part II: Mock Debate” and it was enjoyable too. The mock debate with the new debate format was demonstrated for a republican party official and it did not go over well.  Also Neal went undercover as an internet troll and there was some funny interaction between him and the financial news girl.
