Remmy’s Review of SAMSON

Samson 2018, PG-13 The writing of this fairy tale was less than par, within the first minute, Samson and his kin steals corn of all things. Corn that came into existence on Turtle Island, now known as the United States, there was no way they had corn in the Philistine countries. In the first hour we see the Philistines with acres of corn stalks. Not likely.

But keeping this fairy tale going,  the story of David and Goliath (Goliath being a Philistine) so the bible says, but Goliath was the son of the Nephilim one hunred years after Samson, or so we are told. An ogre with no education, he was dumb and like all of the ogres of old, which either were trained to be warriors or used as cattle. Like most ogres, they are not that bright, and they have a short temper. Can you name a famous American that has those traits and is over six foot tall? Granted not all Ogres are this dumb or bad, but they all have short tempers, must be a lack of oxygen to the brain to create seratonin.

Hercules is the same. They say his father was Zeus (Greek mythology) was actually the son of another Nephilim.  Then comes Samson, (Hebrew) and you find that there are many similarities in the stories Coincidences or lies?

Every country wants their heroes. Even Americans have their fictitious heroes, but the human spirit wants a hero that will save us from the injustices of the hierarchy that runs the world. As in almost all Christian stories, there are always the evil women to bring a man down.

Although the writing was terrible because they did not use historical knowledge of the time period nor did they use any logic, the acting was almost good, the photography was excellent and the directing and editing standard, I thought it was a good movie. I rate this 3 out of 5 stars but remember all of the stories are pure fiction, and this is where Marvel and D.C. got their ideas for heroes. Of course you are ordered to believe this fairy tale or risk going to hell for not being a believer, or so we are told.

Growing up with a pain in the bum

Paul and Veggies

Paul and Veggies

None of us like all veggies. As a matter of fact, Popeye only ate spinach, some only eat corn. Not to be outdone, I didn’t like every vegetable out there. For instance, I couldn’t stand turnip greens, even the smell would make me gag, and there were a few others too. Yet I ate almost all my vegetables because I wanted a desert, which was NOT a meat pie! I for one could not imagine a roast beef dinner without onions, carrots, potatoes, and other good vegetables.

But not everyone is like me. Take Paul for instance (pictured on the left). We had to eat our veggies before we could go out and play. Instead of eating those wholesome veggies, he would play with them. Nerve wracking to say the least. I wanted to go swimming or ride my bike, and be done with my meal, he was still playing with the veggies, determined to wear out his dad’s patience and send him away. Paul will eat something called mushy peas. Oh my gosh, mushy peas? Why not just regular rolly peas you eat with whipped potatoes?

Although Paul will sometimes eat normal peas, about the only other veggie he will eat is mushy peas. Mushy Peas recipe just nasty. Add that to the fact the English call just about everything a pie, except for pies. Their favorite is meat pies. Give me a break. They mix everything up in a bowl and pour whipped potatoes over it, so there is no flavor of anything. Because most English do not eat vegetables, there are none in it. They serve a side of mushy peas. If you ever visit England do NOT order anything that says Pie on the menu, you will be sorely disappointed.

When I saw the gif below I thought of Paul, I watch this gif a lot because it so reminds me of Paul and all English people. Why? Because I have seen him do this! I am sure some of them eat good veggies as I do, but I have my doubts.

Remmy’s Review: Silencer

Silencer (not rated) Sep 2018. This movie is classified as an action/thriller, however, the action started at the beginning for a couple of moments when we didn’t have any more until the last thirty minutes of the film. 

I felt sorry for the actors because the script, well it sucked, on the good side the actors were decent, the photography was great and the directing and editing were passable. I give this a 3.5 out of 5 stars

Remmy’s Review: Gehenna: Where death lives

Gehenna: Where death lives, (2018 TV MA) It is a pretty good scary movie and it has all the features of a grade A movie, including some good stars that have walk-on roles at the beginning of the film. I am guessing it is so people think it will be better than it is.
The special effects were great for this film, the dialog was believable and the story line was different. I thought the acting was pretty good as well as the photography, although most of it is filmed in a bunker, which gives its own lighting problems for the light men and photographers.

This has several essentials, Karma for one, people from your past that haunt you, a time shift feeling (not time travel) Overall this was a great film.

I gave it 3 out of 5 stars, and you probably want to know why. I see things with logic, and several scenes although good were not very logical nor were they explained. For horror lovers, this is a movie to see

Remmy’s Review: 2036 Origin Unknown

2036 Origin Unknown, June 2018, Rated TV-14 staring Kate Sachoff as a strange scientist and Steven Cree as the voice of a computer. A monolith on Mars, which is actually a cube instead of a monolith on Pluto. A computer that has its own mind (HAL?)

Personally I felt that this was a remake of several SciFi movies, except for the end of it. Even though this has great reviews from scifi people, I am not a scifi person, I rate it 3 out of 5 because this is just a different ending to the same movies we have seen in the past.
