My Thoughts:
So, Fast & The Furious has always been a guilty pleasure of mine. Always enjoyed the movies, the car chases, cool cars etc. But the latest movies has turned in to pure action movies with less and less car scenes. Still good movies, dont get me wrong. But not "a car" movie franchise anymore. Still some cool moments here and there. But for the last two movies (9/10) i hope they will go back to what they started with. Would be awesome. But all in all, its a movie you have to watch anyways. And i enjoyed it tho.

This is a TV Movie from the '80s that I somehow missed this one when it originally aired. I found this one to be a very good movie. It has great atmosphere. The cast... with a lot of familiar faces... did a wonderful job. I can easily see this film become a Halloween tradition. Highly recommended.

Title: Get Out
Year: 2017
Director: Jordan Peele
Rating: Rated 15 : Strong Violence, Gore, Sex References, Language
Length: 104 Min.
Video: Widescreen 2.40:1

Stars:
Daniel Kaluuya
Allison Williams
Catherine Keener
Bradley Whitford
Caleb Landry Jones

Plot:
When Chris (Daniel Kaluuya), a young African-American man, visits his white girlfriend's (Allison Williams) family estate, he becomes ensnared in the more sinister, real reason for the invitation. At first, Chris reads the family's overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter's interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined. This speculative thriller from Blumhouse (producers of The Visit, Insidious series and The Gift) and the mind of Jordan Peele (Key & Peele) is equal parts gripping thriller and provocative commentary.

My Thoughts:
Woah, that was kinda intense and a bit different then i expected it to be.. I pre-ordered it a while back after watching the thrailer, and i found it interesting. The movie got a creepy mood trough-out the whole movie, right off the bat you know something is real wrong in a creepy good way. And then all the freaky stuff starts to happen, and the movie takes us trough some cool twists and turns i didnt see coming. For me this was a real great horror\thriller with a twisted but good story. All in all, this is a must watch! Was much better then i expected it to be! And this blurayset comes with some great extras aswell.

Audio: English: Dolby Digital: 5.1
Subtitles: English

Stars:
Julie Benz as Jackie/Jamie
Belle Shouse as Sarah
Josh Stamberg as Tim
Danielle Harris as Danielle
Douglas Tait as Jed

Plot:
Welcome to Havenhurst, a gothic apartment complex in the heart of New York City's historic Tudor City district. A beautifully maintained, turn-of-the-century building that houses over 3,000 residents...and many dark secrets. The rent is reasonable and the rules are simple: live a good and decent life and you can stay for as long as you like. Break the rules and face certain eviction...and never be seen or heard from again.

JACKIE SULLIVAN, a troubled young woman with a serious alcohol addiction, is released from rehab and given a second chance with a new job and a furnished apartment at Havenhurst. Guilt-ridden over the tragic loss of her 6-year-old daughter, Jackie is quickly drawn into the mysteries of Havenurst, in particular the unsolved disapppearance of the apartment's previous occupant, a young woman who fled in the middle of the night and disappeared without a trace.

Aided by a hardened New York police detective who is well aware of Jackie's checkered past and a lonely foster child who lives under the shadow of her caretakers' sadistic whims, Jackie must not only face her inner demons...but the very real ones that live deep within the walls of Havenhurst.

Extras:


My Thoughts:

I watched this one on Netflix when I saw that it starred Julie Benz. I been a fan of hers since her Buffy the Vampire Slayer days. So I was excited to check this one out. While it is not a terrible film.... it also is no more then average. In other words it is nothing special but was good enough to keep my interest throughout. I would probably add this one to my physical collection if I found it cheap enough. If nothing else but to add to my Julie Benz collection.

My Thoughts:

This is the first time I watched this one. As a Walking Dead fan the first thing I noticed is that it stars Lauren Cohan (Maggie). Despite (or maybe even because of) the unexpected twist I rather enjoyed this one. This film went from one type of creepy atmosphere to an entirely different type. I would say it is definitely worth the time put in to watch it.

Extras:
Scene Access
Audio Commentary

My Thoughts:

This is one of the King miniseries I like a lot... but for some reason seldomly watch. I guess it has something to do with the length of miniseries. This one is loaded with big names and is a story that easily keeps your attention. I am not a big reader so I can't compare the miniseries to the book... but it is one of my favorites of his miniseries.

Comparing it to the new film... there is a lot I actually think they done better in the theatrical film. At the same time there is things I like how they handled here as well. I am familiar with (and fan of) a lot of the cast members in the miniseries. I also liked how this one handled the story in flash backs. Though I am glad the new film did not do this. Over-all I really enjoyed both versions a lot and I can't wait for the next film to get released... will be a must see at the theater as well.
