Darker Shades of Thriller


PLOT:  Alice must save the world again!

                Alice (Mia Jovovich) takes on zombies and tries to save earth from a man-made apocalypse by Dr. Isaacs (Iain Glen).  The film is what you expect from the franchise-action packed, lots of the undead and a few monsters.  Jovovich is just an action babe!  Acting not really a requirement for films like these but she is intense and can handle herself with man or monster. If you like this movie series you will enjoy it but it may not be the last-wink, wink!


PLOT:  A mental ill man has 23 different personalities.

                Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McIvor) is his real name but the man has a problem.  He has 22 other characters inside of him.  One of them kidnaps three girls and isolated them and the young women try to escape.  Many people have seen movies with one person with many but not like this!  McIvor is just brilliant-if not for him it wouldn’t be good and the director M. Knight Shyamalan who did The Sixth Sense which I liked.  He directed many other movies but this is very good.  Minor spoiler –there is a “twist” in the film and a guest star action fans know.  It is a psychological thriller not Jason in Friday the 13th so don’t expect many killings but if you want to see something different this is it!


PLOT: The further adventure of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.

                Anastasia (Dakota Johnson) couldn’t take Christian (Jamie Dorman) kinky fetishes so she leave him. Christian is used to getting what he wants so he pursues Ana.  She still wants him and gives him another chance but one of his ex-submissive (?) Leila (Bella Heathcote) is stalking Ana and the woman who got him into bondage Elena Lincoln (still sexy Kim Basinger) dislikes her. OMG!  At least it is funny.  

 Let me tell you how it goes:  funny, boring, sex scene repeat a few times, suspense, the end.  There is much talent in this movie from the stars to the director but again at least it’s funny.  This is not a critic movie, it’s a guilty pleasure.  African-Americans have Madea franchise, teens had Twilight Saga and young women have this!  It’s a girl’s night out movie with drinks provided!
