THE X-FILES



Usually, I don’t like the weird-realistic combination genres, but The X-Files was an exception to the rule.

I love mystery/ detective shows …

  • Examining the hidden clues
  • Searching for the master-villains agenda

The X-Files gave me that, and a rogue extraterrestrial to boot.

I had watched one or two snippets of the show when passing a television as it was being shown. It never caught my fancy.

But when I was able to binge the show.

I loved the rooting for the detectives against all odds.

HOBBES AND SHAW



If you enjoy high-intensity action, explosions, and hand-to-hand combat, this is a film for you.

Of course, you can always throw in THE ROCK for good measure.

Hobbes (The Rock), a former US agent, and Shaw, a renegade from the British Secret Service, join forces to save the world from a super-virus.

I would not say Hobbes and Shaw was a five-star experience, but it was a fun watch.

What a great idea!

Regal Theater has begun to show the prequels to upcoming movies on the big screen.

Having never seen the movie IT before … as a lad, I found horror movies amusing … I decided to give IT as try.

(Before you think I am warped, the first horror movie I was not allowed to watch I saw at an older cousin’s house: TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE. I thought it was hilarious. I knew the blood and gore was fake. Besides who in their right mind who choose a chainsaw has their weapon of murder? My mother was relieved that I could sleep that night … but then I think it worried her that I, at such a young age, could think of weapons of choice for committing mayhem.)

While watching IT 1, I found my personality had not changed. The movie’s musical score did cause me to jump … just once. But the during the rest of the movie I had to stifle giggles so as not to offend the masses that were thrill-seeking a horror experience.

I wonder if IT 2 will be any better.

(As a writer, I now feel compelled to give IT 1 a read.)

This is the story of Alan Turing- the mastermind behind the breaking of the Enigma.

Well-worth the watch.
