The Review: Bernie

This will have spoilers. I watched this movie from a few years back called Bernie after Cam suggested it. I had never heard of this movie or the true story it was based off of. It stars Jack Black as Bernie Tiede. He is a funeral director that ends up being the partner of this 81 year old woman and the next thing you know her ass is shot dead in the garage and she is tossed in the freezer. The problem is...if this guy goes to trial he will get off because the town loves him so damned much!

The Review: Olympus

One day while trolling Amazon I stumbled across this show called Olympus. Its a show made in Canada that is about this guy called Hero that is trying to rid himself of a curse. This will have spoilers by the way. Tom York stars as Hero. The show starts off with him tied to a device by a cyclops with his feet painted blue and about to be killed. He gets free and rescues these three oracles. One of them turns out to be who he is looking for, the Oracle of Gaia played by Sonya Cassidy. This review is gonna be all over the place.

Hero has this thing where he will not kill anyone. He knows nothing about his family other than his mother who was killed when he was young trying to protect him from some assassins that wanted what is inside him called the Lexicon. They come across Daedalus, Icarus' father, who is more science based than following a belief in the gods. They end up in this kingdom where this crazy ass father and daughter are together. The daughter played by Sophia Lauchlin Hirt is hot and crazy as all hell. She wants Hero and will do anything and kill anyone to have him.

Theater Whore: Room

Room 8/10

There will be some spoilers. Last night Cam and I went to check out the film Room. I had seen the trailer and it looked like it would be a super sad and miserable film. While it was a dark subject matter the movie wasn't as depressing as I thought it would be. This movie is about a boy named Jack played by Jacob Tremblay and his mother Ma played by Brie Larson who live in a room all by themselves except for a visit every few nights by this guy known as Old Nick.

Theater Whore: Creed

Creed 7/10

I finally got around to watching the new Creed film starring Michael B. Johnson and Sylvester Stallone. I was slightly hesitant to watch this. There has been six previous Rocky movies and I've enjoyed five of them. We don't talk about Rocky V. With this one I was expecting a bootleg style reboot but I was wrong. This movie blended perfectly into the previous films and I would actually like to see some more of these. The story is pretty simple the way it should be.

Jordan plays Adonis “Donnie” Johnson. He lives in a juvenile center when a lady played by Phylicia Rashad that slept with Apollo Creed shows up and takes him into her home. He is a bad ass kid which fast forwards to him quitting his job so that he can learn to be a better fighter. His mother does not want him doing it explaining to him how she had to wipe his dads ass because he was so hurt from boxing. Oh, and he died in the ring. That happened. He ends up getting Rocky to help him train after much convincing. Bring on the training montage!

Porn Better Than Hollywood Again

The same guy that has been doing those amazing looking porn spoofs of comic book movies Axel Braun is back at it again. This time he is combining two Marvel franchises that will never actually cross over in film, Avengers Vs. X-Men XXX. Just going by the images of these characters I kinda want to see this as a straight up film. I previously wrote about his Batman V. Superman XXX, Captain America XXX, and Wonder Woman XXX. In an interview Braun said “As a comic fan, this is the movie I have been eager to see! I was blessed with a terrific cast and with a storyline that allowed for some awesome parody moments, so in the end we were able to create a spoof that's exactly as fun, sexy and entertaining as I had hoped.”

Skin Diamond as Storm is my favorite one by the way. The rest of the cast includes Penny Pax as Mockingbird, Chanel Preston as Polaris, Dana Vespoli as Psylocke, Katie St. Ives as Kitty Pride, Zoe Voss as Wasp, Jazy Berlin as Black Cat, Jayden Jaymes as Maria Hill, Josh Rivers as Captain America, Nat Turnher as Luke Cage, Jason Matrix as Havok, Tom Byron as Magneto, Marcus London as Banshee, Jack Vegas as Dr. Strange, Lexington Steele as Nic Fury, and Billy Glide as Colossus. The last guy listed is dead now. For real. Not, like, comic book dead. These porn names are better than comic book names.

You Had One Job: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Out Of The Shadows Trailer

I'm not gonna get into the trailer for the X:Men Apocalypse trailer that was released because it looks exactly like I was expecting it to and I've already written about it. But right after watching it I saw that a trailer was released for the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows was released. I was drinking coffee so I was good and hyped to suffer through some bullshit. This trailer was actually worse than anything I could've imagined.

The turtles still look creepy as hell so they got that down. Megan Fox returns to pretend to be April O'Neil But they have Casey Jones in this movie that I didn't know was being made and he looks like a pretty boy because he is being played by Stephen Amell who stars on Arrow. He looks absolutely nothing like Jones should. No knock on Amell because I like him when he pops up on The Flash. But the Jones I want sounds like Clint Eastwood and never shows his face. I want a violent asshole in a hockey mask not named Jason Vorhees.

Theater Whore: Jem & The Holograms

Jem & The Holograms 2/10

I did it. I watched Jem & The Holograms. I told everyone that I was gonna do it and I did it. Now I feel terrible. It wasn't as bad as I was expecting but when I was expecting for my face to melt off and my ancestors to rise from their graves and shout in anger that is not saying much. This was not a movie for anyone that ever enjoyed the series or just likes the character of Jem. This movie is great for an 11 year old girl that has never heard of Jem and just stumbled across this. Oh, and she has to have terrible taste in music and have no concept of how the internet works. That helps.

The Adult Film/Wrestling Connection

Call me crazy, but there has always been a connection between the way porn actresses look at a particular time and female wrestlers. For anyone that doesn't know, I worked at a porn shop for seven years. Seven long, insane, disgusting years. I have also watched wrestling for 33 years. The image in the banner by the way is Chyna. I used her image because honestly that shit is crazy. That is the same human being. She showed up jacked to the moon, trimmed down, did Playboy, and is now...around.

I am going to use some examples from porn actresses and female wrestlers to show you how I have always seen this strange connection. Who knows? For any aspiring porn stars and wrestlers you can even use this to see what look you should be going for by watching one or the other. Hell, Chyna made the transition from wrestler to porn actress!

Theater Whore: Brooklyn

Brooklyn 8/10

The second movie Cam and I watched was Brooklyn starring Saoirse Ronan who I later realized I'd seen in Hanna and The Grand Budapest Hotel. Brooklyn is about a young girl from Ireland named Ellis Lacey being given the opportunity to move to America in the early 1950's. She leaves behind her mother, sister, and her friends. She gets there and is all kinds of sad until she meets this super nice guy Tony played by Emory Cohen with an Italian family. She lives in a boarding house with these other girls and they bring most of the funny moments at the dinner table. There was one moment that made me cackle for a moment surely embarrassing Cam.

Theater Whore: The Danish Girl

The Danish Girl 8/10

This was the first of two films Cam and I saw during our annual Oscar catch up. She said we were seeing two movies and I had no idea which ones or what they were about. I knew nothing going in and this is fun with her. The Danish Girl stars Eddie Redmayne and Gerda Wegener in this semi-biography about one of the first transgenders ever. Redmayne plays Einar Wegener who is an artist married to another artist Gerda Wegener. He is very successful while she is trying to get a show going but quite cant. One day she has her husband pose because a model she is using is late.
