Fear the Walking Dead

Fear the Walking Dead
~ TV-MA | 44min | Drama, Horror, Sci-Fi | TV Series (2015– ) | Creators: Dave Erickson, Robert Kirkman; Starring: Kim Dickens, Frank Dillane, Cliff Curtis, and many more – see IMDB for details. ~

Not as good as “The Walking Dead” this spin-off alternate tale that weaves in and out of the original series, is a fantastic simultaneous story. It starts off in Los Angeles as bands of families trying to survive the Zombie apocalypse. Great tales with up/down captivation through the series. Running alongside the time line of Walking Dead, the family has to test their ethics as they travel land, sea, and into Mexico. Loss, horror, death, dysfunction, and survival. A fun action packed thriller.

Rated: 4 of 5 stars. ~ Review by Leaf McGowan/Thomas Baurley, Technogypsie Productions ~

Siren (2013:TV-MA)

Siren
1h 33min | Drama | 26 October 2013 (USA) | TV-MA
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2083332/
~ Director: Jesse Peyronel; Writer: Jesse Peyronel (screenplay); Starring: Vinessa Shaw, Robert Kazinsky, Bess Wohl and more. See imdb for details. ~

A fantastic tale about a women with a medical “siren-like” condition where no human or animal can resist her pheromones, driving them crazy enough to take their own lives. This has forced her since puberty to live reclusively on an estate in the middle of nowhere for the rest of her life. She meets a man who has a disorder that doesn’t allow him to smell, making him resistant against hers. He is the first man she can trust, or can she? I thought the screenplay was grand, story line interesting, and production well done. Great plot. Watched on Amazon prime. 4/7/18

Rated: 4 of 5 stars. ~ Review by Leaf McGowan/Thomas Baurley, Technogypsie Productions ~

Peter Rabbit (PG: 2018)

Peter Rabbit (PG: 2008)
~ PG | 1 hour 33 minutes | Animation, Adventure, Comedy | 9 February 2018 (USA) ~ Director: Will Gluck; Writers: Rob Lieber (screen story by), Will Gluck (screen story by); Starring: : James Corden, Fayssal Bazzi, Domhnall Gleeson | See full cast & crew on IMDB.

A invisibly digitized modern re-telling of the child classic “Peter Rabbit” features Peter and his gang targeting raids on the farmer’s vegetable garden and not getting caught. A trajedy takes a twist giving them full reign only to have to deal with another farmer escalating into full outright warfare. A love story meshed within, Peter has to contemplate right from wrong, and the twists are hillarious. Fun, full of action, edge of your seat fun for the family. My son was dancing afterwards wearing bunny ears the theater gave him. Based on the classic from Beatrix Potter. Well done with a thorough plot, excellent cinematography, and the digitized animation was transparent. Highly imaginative classic.

Rating 5 stars out of 5. ~ Review by Leaf McGowan/Thomas Baurley, Technogypsie Productions ~ viewed 2/11/18 at Tinseltown using Movie Pass.

Three Billboards outside of Ebbing Missouri (R: 2017)

Three Billboards outside of Ebbing Missouri
R | 1 hour 55 minutes | Crime, Drama | 1 December 2017 ~ Director: Martin McDonagh; Writer: Martin McDonagh; Starring: Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell | See full cast & crew on IMDB. ~

The tale of a unsolved mystery and traumatic murder that struck the town of Ebbing, Missouri along a un-used old highway. Mildred Hays is infuriated with local law enforcement and decides to take in-your-face action against the local law enforcement to motivate them to solve the crime. She paints three billboards with controversial messages aimed at the local sheriff Willoughby played by Woody Harrelson. Violence, brutality, arson, and false arrests create a circus of activity in this small once quiet town. High action and deep contemplation, the ending would not be of my choosing even though its meant to carry on into your dreams that night. Well done and great plot.

~ Rating: 4 stars out of 5. Review by Leaf McGowan/Thomas Baurley, Technogypsie Productions at Tinseltown using Movie Pass. ~
