Remmy’s Review: The Christmas Chronicles w/ Trailer

The Christmas Chronicles (22 Nov 2018) In everyone’s hearts there is always the hope of something better, and The Christmas Chronicles delivers. Santa is played by Kurt Russell, yeah I know it is a little hard to believe, but he does it well. This is a fantasy, for children, just remember what I say at the end of this and make sure the children know it. There are several child actors that play Teddy and Kat at different ages, all did well. Judah Lewis plays the oldest who is not a believer and you actually feel for him. His little sister is played by Darby Camp, who by the way, steals the show.

If your children see this as a fantasy, then all is well. If they are expected to believe it, shame on you. It will be a great Christmas Story the whole family will enjoy. Based on that I give it a 4.5 out of 5, taking off a little for the cartoonish elves. I guess they didn’t want to pay for short kids or adults to play them, so sad. Personally, I would have preferred kids, or short people playing those parts, after all, that is what you expect in a Christmas Story… Don’t worry, the children in your house won’t notice… I hope. This was an enjoyable movie.

As a youngster I never believed in Santa Claus, however, I do believe in Sinter Klaus ie Saint Nick who was a robber baron in the old world, by all intents and purposes gave out candy to children, but when he left the town he took several with him, they were never to be seen again. a demon by any name. Let’s face it when kids first see Santa Clause, they scream bloody murder wondering why their parents forsook them. Then they are taught that the evil clown brings them presents. That lasts for several years until, at nine to eleven, their schoolmates tell them the truth! Bad parenting. Now they will never trust you 100% anymore. You lied about the tooth fairy, you lied about the Easter bunny, and you lied about Santa Clause, not to mention all the lies Disney tells them.

I would not buy this, and if my arm was twisted I may watch it again.

Remmy’s Review: The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (Nov 2018) A good singing cowboy that can outshoot Roy Rogers, although I can’t say he can outsing him, at least at first. However, it gets better. There are actually several stories in this movie Each with a different message, and outcome. I enjoyed this video because it made me laugh at people. Oh yeah, there are like twenty major stars in it, so be on the lookout for them, and these are actors, not High Paid He-men… These guys and girls actually act, several times I found myself saying “No it can’t be he/she” but it was!

The directing was great, the acting was great, the writing was great, and hilarious at times. This is one of those, ‘you don’t want to miss this one’ movie, All is fair and it is rated R… I am not sure why, it did have a bit of blood, and only one speck of gore, and no foul language that I heard, hardly worth rating it ‘R’. Then again I hear best friend’s foul mouth, who lives in England, so much lately that maybe I just tune it out.

I think anyone over thirteen will enjoy it. I rate this movie 5 out of 5 stars!

 

 

 

 

Growing up with a best friend

Paul my best friend since I was twelve seemed a little, no a lot odd to me. Always talking about sex as most thirteen-year-olds do. I think he was trying to gauge how interested I was. hmm. Regardless one-day mom was in our bathroom and spotted this. Oh, my word I can’t believe he left it out. Since I was the only one around, she asked me about it. Of course, Paul was my best friend so I did the best I could.

After five years of remmymeggs.com

The last couple of days have been hectic. First I want to thank Paul and StevenF for staying with this site for 5 short years. Between the 3 of us, we have written over 1200 articles, and most of you loved them. It pains me to say it but this week our database was corrupted, and there was nothing I could save it, except for paying one of my legs to some **** who wanted to charge me but couldn’t fix it.  So the entire database, five years of work is down the tube. We do have some articles and we will post those, that we have copies of, as time permits, but overall they are gone.

Things I would like to see… Comments, I know you read the articles your comments would be appreciated, and clicking the like buttons would be appreciated too. Donations, it doesn’t cost you but a cup of regular (not Starbucks coffee) a couple of times a year to keep this website in operation, we sure do not make money from it. Thoughts and ideas, we love them! Other writers, if you have something to share on a regular basis and it fits into our clean environment, let me know and maybe we will add you!

 

 

Remmy’s Review: Acts of Vengence w/ Trailer

Acts of Vengence (October 2017) rated R, Antonio Banderas plays a lawyer who is too busy for his family. The police are too busy to find his family’s killer. This is a gritty movie with some blood, no guts, and a little foul language. The blood is very minimal and mostly deals with a boxing ring. The movie moves forward quickly and Banderas luckily doesn’t speak much in it. I and others find his accent as true as it is, hard to understand. On the other hand, this gave Banderas a vehicle to show of his acting, and he was amazing.

Karl Urban (Star Trek) plays a cop and I didn’t recognize him at all. This is acting! Forget Dr. McCoy, this guy is a real action man! and makes Jason Bourne look like the woose he is. Although the acting was great I can only give this movie 4.5 stars
