TV Series Review: Fear the Walking Dead (Season 2)

fearthewalkingdead-2I’m happy to say that Fear the Walking Dead has improved.

If you read my review of the first season, you know I thought it totally sucked, but I had high hopes that the show would improve, and it did. Once they got on the boat, they had a lot of time to think about their circumstances, and their reactions to their new world were much better portrayed in season 2, although it did take a long time for this to play out.

fearthewalkingdead-2-nickI liked that in a sense they were isolated yet looking out on what the world had become, and that one man, Strand, dictated their interactions with that world. The characters weren’t flat like they were in season 1. Madison’s strength, Nick’s connection with the zombies, and Chris’s dark decent stood out this season. I do have to say that I’m loving Strand more and more, but his character didn’t have a chance to really shine until the end of the season.

The show was beautifully filmed on the pacific coast as they made their way to Mexico. The mix of zombies and water was just plain COOL! I’m looking forward to more of this.

While this show still has A LOT of room to grow, I’m A LOT more interested in continuing on as a viewer.

Movie Review: Burying the Ex

BuryingTheExThis week’s movie is Burying the Ex. Here’s what it’s about:

“When Max (Yelchin) learns that his new live-in girlfriend, Evelyn (Greene) is controlling and manipulative, he is afraid to end the relationship. However, fate occurs and Evelyn is killed in a freak accident. A couple months have passed and Max meets his dream girl, Olivia (Daddario). The new romance gets tricky when Evelyn comes back from the grave and insists on continuing their once relationship by all means.”

I didn’t hate this movie, but I didn’t love it either. This is not a hardcore zombie flick, but a wanna be funny, love story, chick flick.

Until I sat down to write this review, I had no idea the director of this movie also directed Small Soldiers, Inner Space, and the Gremlins movies. This movie is nowhere near the caliber of those movies.

I think Burying the Ex has an audience, but don’t count myself a part of it. So I’m giving it a 3 to be kind. Don’t watch this if you’re looking for blood and gore. Watch it if you like cute zombie movies, which, in my opinion, goes against the natural laws of the zombie Universe. LOL!

Movie Review: He Never Died

HeNeverDiedThis week’s movie is He Never Died, and I enjoyed this one. Here’s what it’s about:

“Jack’s in a rut. Depression and severe anti-social behavior has whittled down his existence to sleeping and watching television. Seeing the human race as little more than meat with a pulse, Jack has no interest to bond with anyone. There’s little purpose for him to make friends with someone he’d eventually eat or outlive by more than a millennia. The fuse is lit when Jack’s past comes back to rattle him. Jack must now walk a tight rope of sobriety and try to eat as few people as possible in this violent tale of personal responsibility.”

Henry Rollins stars in this movie and he’s awesome as the lead. He has this even keel attitude throughout, but it works well. Even when he’s eating people he’s calm and collected, making it a little funny. Jack’s character personifies how we all just want to live our life, but we’re always tempted or dragged into chaos. You know, that side in all of us that we can’t always fight and eventually gets us in trouble of some kind or another. Unfortunately for Jack, he’s unable to die and stuck in the human condition for an eternity.

I enjoyed this movie because you get blood and gore and philosophy all in one. I highly suggest watching He Never Died.

Movie Review: Exists

ExistsSorry for taking last week off. It was a crazy week.

This week’s movie is Exists, and I have mixed feelings about this one. Here’s what it’s about:

“For five friends, it was a chance for a summer getaway- a weekend of camping in the Texas Big Thicket. But visions of a carefree vacation are shattered with an accident on a dark and desolate country road. In the wake of the accident, a bloodcurdling force of nature is unleashed-something not exactly human, but not completely animal- an urban legend come to terrifying life…and seeking murderous revenge.”

First off, Exists had some of the most stupidest characters I’ve seen in a movie. I was screaming many four-letter words at the TV screen every few minutes. Very annoying! At least give us one character with half a brain. Still, there was something about their stupidity that kept me watching. I found myself interested to find out what dumb move they’d make next, and of course, they delivered every time.

I have to acknowledge that the acting wasn’t bad and the big foots were cool.

I detested the Blair Witch Project style of filming, and that the character with the camera always seemed to be filming despite the tortures big foots inflicted on him.

If you’re feeling adventurous, give this one a try. Otherwise, don’t bother.
