Zombie at 17 – Review

Zombie at 17 – Lifetime – 2 hours and 3 minutes

Zombie at 17

Tia can feel her life slipping from her, literally.  Her body temperature is dropping, she is losing her memory, she doesn’t bleed, and she has developed a taste for brains.  But with those losses, she has gained superhuman strength, heightened senses of sight and hearing.  Tia is trying everything to find a cure for Zombism.  She is giving up friends, family, and her life to find something to help her.   As she opens up about her condition, friends and family are there to support her.  And she will need that support system.  Tia informed a detective that she believes her boyfriend Connor’s friend Jason killed their other friend Riley.  When the detective starts to investigate Jason and his girlfriend Sammy, they plot revenge on Tia.  Two dumb teens unknowingly hunting a zombie on borrowed time, what could possibly go wrong?

For zombie fearers, don’t worry.  This isn’t a typical zombie movie.  It’s the Lifetime version of a zombie movie.  Tia can feel her brain starting to slip as she forgets her sister.  She doesn’t deny what she is and eats animal brains curve her cravings.  This was the most stomach-turning moment of the movie.  The special effects department had a field day with the brains.  So while typical horror movies are scary, this one is just gross.  With the revenge story, you also get a mystery and a love story.  If you have a strong stomach, watch this movie.

I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars

You’re done taking advantage of people who help you – Conner

This place is insane yet oddly inviting – Tia

I knew there was something I liked about you – Flynn

Dangerous Matrimony – Review

Dangerous Matrimony – LMN – 2 hours and 0 minutes

Dangerous Matrimony

Portia is worried about her boss David.  David met Bridget 5 months ago.  And in that short time, the two have dated, have gotten pregnant, and have bought new life insurance.  Now, David wants to pop the question and get married quickly.  First, David needs to go on a trip to meet an investor and he takes Bridget with him.   This investor is tough but David knows how to smooth it over.  After David and Bridget’s first night there, David is kidnapped and held for a $1 million ransom.  Even though the two are at odds, Bridget calls Portia to get the money.  Portia immediately comes to the rescue.  But when the handoff goes bad, David blames Portia.  That blame isn’t entirely wrong.

You must watch this movie from beginning to end.  While the first 5 minutes are disjointed, you wonder how it all fits.  But don’t worry, all will be explained in the end. Don’t be surprised if you are confused every moment of this movie.  There are so many motives and double agents, it will be hard to keep up with everything going on.  You will need a scorecard just to figure out who is in the lead.  The storyline is so intricate, you must watch it twice.  And just to wet your whistle, this move has a “women over the phone” like The Accountant.  Watch and DVR today.

I give it 5 out of 5 stars

Everything is your fault sir – Portia

I may be in love but I don’t have blinders on – David

I just want to get David back – Bridget

The Lover in the Attic: A True Story – Review

The Lover in the Attic: A True Story – Lifetime – 2 hours and 0 minutes

The Lover in the Attic: A True Story

When Hollywood dreamer Dolly met Fred, a textile king, she thought her life would get better.  While she has money, Fred is a brute who doesn’t believe she will become a Hollywood actress.  Dolly goes to her husband’s factory and sees Otto fixing the Singer (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer).  She goes home and tells Fred her Singer needs to be fixed.  Then, she asks Fred to recommend someone.  Of course, he recommends Otto.  Dolly quickly runs upstairs to break her Singer and anxiously wait for Otto.  She takes no time questioning Otto on his sexual experiences and family connections.  After a few trysts, Otto’s conscience starts to bother him.  He isn’t comfortable having sex with a married woman.  Dolly tells Otto she wants a certain lifestyle and if he can’t provide it, she wouldn’t leave her husband.  But she has another offer in mind.  Dolly knows Otto wants to be a writer, so he can live in her house and write.  The catch: when Frank is home, Otto has to stay in the attic.  This way Dolly can have her lover close by and keep her lifestyle.  Dolly has the best of both worlds but it will all come crashing down on Otto.

This true story could only be told on Lifetime.  In today’s social media society, it’s hard to believe any person could have a lover live in their attic for years without a neighbor, friend, or family member being suspicious.  However, this was a different time of no TV, prohibition, and juke joints.  Some would describe Dolly as a prisoner of her time.  However, Dolly was a narcissist.  And Otto was young and dumb.  He was ripe for this picking.  While this movie does try to make you feel some compassion for Dolly’s plight, it is lost in her multiple affairs and use of Otto.  Watch and DVR to watch again.

I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars

I’m not bargaining for your affections – Fred

She had the face of a Madonna but a safe deposit box where her heart should be – Otto

I just might have to break that singer every day – Dolly

The next installment of the Good Witch series, this is better than its predecessors (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer).  It has all the romance and magic you expect.  However, it offers more shade and quips than any Hallmark movie.  As Martha and Abagail get into a war during the competition, the spirit of Halloween has even struck Nick.  While you will know who stole the heart, it’s why that is the true enigma.  You are having so much fun watching this movie, you will forget that Sam and Cassie’s wedding was postponed due to a flood.  This movie will get you ready for Halloween, pumpkin carving, and love.  Watch this one with 2 solid hours to spend and a nice cup of tea.  Because a lot will be spilled in the movie.

I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars

Love, Of Course – Review

Love, Of Course – Hallmark – 2 hours and 0 minutes

digi18-loveofcourse-landscape-853x570

Emily is reluctantly seeing her daughter Cara off to college when she almost hits a man with her car.  They exchange passive-aggressive words before moving on.  After, preparing Cara and her roommate Mattie’s room, Emily visits her friend Cheryl.  Cheryl is organizing the Harvest Fest but she has run into a problem.  The fest is supposed to make money for the local farmers, but Prof. Harris (a farmer) is vetoing ever decision she makes.  He believes pumpkin throwing is disrespectful to the growing process and cornfield mazes damage crops.  These events are guaranteed money makers.  If this fest doesn’t turn a profit, all future fest will be canceled.   She asks Emily to take over since Emily has thrown entertaining and profitable events in the past.  Emily doesn’t agree right away.  She promised Cara to hover less but the fest is at Cara’s school.  However, Cara knows this event will be a great distraction for her mom so Cara gives her blessing.  Emily goes to meet Prof. Harris and sees he is Noah, the man she almost ran over.  Starting off on a bad foot will lead to a good story for these to love deprived people.

This is a sweet and kind movie with an all-too-familiar storyline.  Knowing how the movie will end, forces you to be invested in the development.  This development just doesn’t hold your interest long enough.  It does try when the two are faced with a “make it or break it” decisions, but you know what will happen.  This movie is all fluff with no real conflict.  So if you need a distraction, this is the movie for you.  Otherwise, skip it.

I give it 2.5 out of 5 stars

Mom’s can do two things at once. It’s actually our superpower – Emily

Are you driving or Mr. Huggsie. I am asking to know how much of a head start I will need – Noah
