      Review of Jeepers Creepers 2 Bright Blessings, film lovers. Today’s review focuses on a horror film- my favorite genre- and how the determination of two men overcome a seemingly invincible force…at least for twenty-three years. The film grossed over $100,000,000 worldwide and at the time of release was the highest grossing film for four days straight. It is now in ninth grossing place of all films released before Labor Day. It was nominated for three prestigious awards including the Saturn Award for Best Horror Film. Before reading the review, watch the trailer for Jeepers Creepers 2 here:   The plot is- three days after the events of Jeepers Creepers…

      The Exorcist     Bright Blessings film lovers! Classic horror film, The Exorcist has terrified people for decades with the demons, acrobatics of the actress playing a possessed child, and ingrained beliefs in demonic possession- and it’s one I just can’t get enough of. Watch this trailer here:     You wouldn’t know it to talk to me today since I am such a horror fan, but this film literally scared the ever living hell out of me when I was in high school. I was awakening psychically and had gone on a starvation diet that increased my imagination. Seeing the backwards crawl down the steps in that fateful…

      Buffy the Vampire Slayer   Bright Blessings, film lovers!   This month I am reviewing a cult television series that was famous in the 1990’s and early 2000’s and was one of the most popular supernatural horror TV series. It ran for seven seasons, and had a successful spin off show. It spawned what the writer called “a rabid, almost insane fan base,” and earned a spot in TV Guide’s Greatest TV Shows of All Time and Rolling Stone included it in their 100 Greatest TV Shows of All Time as well. It’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Here is a clip so you can see what to expect from…

      Review of Dumb and Dumber   Bright Blessings Film Lovers! This time, I’m reviewing a comedy you’d think would be the last film that offered a magical lesson, but it does! I can’t count how many times I’ve watched it over the years because it’s just that good. It was released in 1994, and brought a cult following, had two spin-off films, and even a cartoon series. The film drew $247 Million at the box office, won four MTV Movie Awards, made it on Empire Magazine’s Top 500 Films of All Time, and was voted fifth greatest comedy by the readers of Total Film magazine. Not bad. Watch the…

      Reservation Dogs     A wonderful new indigenous comedy is making waves on Hulu. Starring such veteran actors as Zahn McClarnon and Gary Farmer, this refreshing show is about a group of Native American teens and their days and nights at home on their reservation in Oklahoma. Bored, tired of the bad things that go on there, and to some extent, ready to get the hell away for good, the kids stick together, making the best of the worst, and making the viewers die laughing, begging for more. Here is a trailer for the show:     The magic of this film comes from the fact that it’s an…

      Review of The Guilt Trip     Seth Rogen fans got an extra special treat when he teamed up with the goddess Barbara Streisand as a mother/ son pair in the hysterically funny film The Guilt Trip. You can watch the side-splitting funny trailer here:     In the film, Rogen plays Andy Brewster, an extremely intelligent under achiever who has more education than accomplishments. He’s spent every penny of his inheritance to invent, and produce his so-called wonder cleaning product, ScieoClean- and doesn’t understand why nobody is buying it. He’s chronically single, lives in a lousy apartment, and doesn’t even have any friends. Not only that, he’s chronically…

      House Hunters Renovation     Bright Blessings, Film Lovers! This review is about a tv series, not a film, and one many indulge in binge watching- HGTV’s House Hunters Renovation. Different from plain old House Hunters, people see properties they know they are going to have to gut, remodel, and sometimes, completely redo to make them livable for their families. This hilarious video shows some of the nightmares people walk into when viewing properties for this program:     Many of us have house shopped, and some reading this may even sell real estate. Each seller thinks THEIR property is the BEST ever, but buyers beg to differ. Part…

      Review of The 13th Warrior This beautiful film opens in the splendor of the ancient Middle East and we find our hero, Ahmad ibn Fahdlan, cast far away from home for having an affair with a married woman. He is banished for having an affair with a king’s wife to the land of what is called the home of the “barbarians” aka the Norsemen- Odin’s men, pagan Heathens! He and his hosts are told by a holy woman 13 men must go to the aid of Kind Hrothgar- yeah ANOTHER Hollywood take on the epic Beowulf- and the 13th Warrior will be no Northman. As a daughter of Odin,…

    Room on the Broom Bright Blessings, film lovers! If you are like me- you love a good cartoon. Well, this was just too cute to resist. Room on the Broom is a short cartoon film based on the children’s book with the same title, written by Julia Donaldson. It was originally released by BBC One in 2012, then again in 2013. Voiced by some of Britain’s most famous stars, including Gillian Anderson, Timothy Spall, and David Walliams, the film is inspiring, heartwarming, and fun. More than this, it teaches a lesson to all people, not just magical practitioners should heed. Here is a trailer to watch:     The story…

      Review of Little Evil   Bright Blessings, Film Lovers. I thought I’d do a horror since it’s October- Halloween month! This one is not scary really, but it is a horror comedy.

Little Evil was released in 2017 and stars the illustrious Clancy Brown, the very funny Adam Scott, and the legendary Sally Field. Here is a trailer so you can see how great this is.     Gary meets the woman of his dreams, Samantha, and after a very short courtship, marries her and moves in with she and her five-year-old son, Lucas. Lucas is…
