Prescription for Danger – Review
Prescription for Danger – LMN – 2 hours and 0 minutes
Ivy is working all-nighters as a software engineer to create a stronger, faster app. She starts to hear a high pitch sound in her ear and passes out. When she wakes up, Dr. Laurie tells her she has a cancerous brain tumor. He continues her she will die within a year without the treatment, but her tumor is inoperable and chemo will only prolong her life by a few months. After seeing her mother suffer through chemo treatments, Ivy wants to forgo them. He then gives her medication to help ease her symptoms. Ivy hides the truth from her friends in order to save them pain. A few days later, Dr. Laurie tells Ivy about an experimental drug that will cost a lot of money. Ivy is willing to pay whatever he wants to get in the trial and start the treatment. But Ivy doesn’t know that Dr. Laurie is fighting a malpractice suit for giving a patient unnecessary medication, extorting money, and almost killing her. Ivy is risking her life and money to save her life.
Too slow and just a bore. It’s hard to get excited about a movie that just drags on and on. You are waiting for something to happen and it never does. You are actually begging for someone to be killed just to make it interesting. This movie can be skipped.
I give it 1 out of 5 stars
Oh you’d be surprised – Dr. Laurie
Why are you doing this to me – Ivy
Lethal Admirer – Review
Lethal Admirer – Lifetime – 2 hours and 4 minutes
Lloyd is happy to tell his mother about his date with his co-worker Megan. He thinks she is amazing and held strong after her fiance was killed. Also, she has given him tips on how to win while being an introvert and ‘game-less’. But when he hears she is moving, his mother tells him to act and show this girl he truly loves her. The only obstacle is Megan has no idea Lloyd likes her. She has put him in the friend zone and started dating. As people around her die, she still trusts him. What will it take for her to see Lloyd’s truth?
This movie should be titled ‘Danger in the Friend Zone’ as Lloyd stalks Megan’s every move on social media and with a camera. With all this stalking, its the encouragement calls from this mother that leaves a sick feeling in the pit of your stomach. The first 1.5 hours is a slow burn, the last 30 minutes are action-packed. So use this movie as background noise until the last 30 minutes. Then give it your full attention.
I give it 3 out of 5 stars
‘Game’ may win you a date but never a mate – Megan
I have no game – Lloyd

Reap What You Sew: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery – HMM – 2 hours and 0 minutes
Aurora is happy to hear Poppy’s amazing news. Her online crafty blog is exploding, she is getting a book deal, and will be going on a tour. Poppy is so happy to have all her dreams come true. So when Poppy is late for an important dinner, Aurora and Sally go to check on her. They find Poppy dead with a stab wound in her abdomen, an open door, and an envelope on the front porch. At first, Sally lies and tells Det. Arthur the envelope was empty. She knows the letter hides a secret that could finger her friend as the number one suspect. However as time goes on, Aurora will need help from her club to nail down a killer from 4 possible suspects.
Add this new mystery to the amazing Aurora collection. With several strong misdirects, you will continue to second guess your choice. While most will get it right, it’s still fun to watch Aurora get under everyone’s skin. While the reason for the crime is derivative, it’s still exciting to see everything unfold. Watch this when you can dedicate the time and your full attention.
I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars
