Monster Fest Rating: I know what you did last summer.
Four bloody knuckles!!
This was one of the big slasher films from the 90s along with Scream. I’ve been eagerly awaiting to see if it lives up with age and it does.
During a wild 4th of July evening four friends accidentally run over a pedestrian. Instead of reporting it to the police decides to dump his body in the ocean and keep the secret to their Graves.
Well be careful what you wish for…because someone knows what they did and is happy to give em one way ticket to death.
All while dressed as a Fisherman this mysterious man is stalking, maiming, and making the teens’ lives a living hell. The Fisherman won’t stop until each one is dead unless they turn the tables on his first.
I won’t reveal much, but I will say this film is smart, epic and easily worth the rating.
The plot gets convoluted at times but that’s why it’s not a five…plus Jennifer Love Hewitt is hawt… Anyways check it out if you haven’t!
Wishmaster continues. This movie dealt with wishes, souls, and an evil monster known as the Djinn. Unlike a traditional genie, he’s very much malevolent spirit who wants to bring his buddies into our dimension by using our deepest most desires to do so.
Yeah the first one was stellar and surely a 2nd one could stay the course? No…not entirely.
This one was ok at best from an annoying main character to a very long set up for the Djinn to actually start going all out and raising hell. However when the Djinn did use his cruel magic, he left an impact.
There was even a scene where the Djinn used an inmate’s wish to make his lawyer screw himself.
Yeah so…don’t expect too much from that but the movie does pay off in the third act when the main character finally tricks him.
It just took a lot to get there…so it ends up with 3 bloody knuckles.
This week J discusses the real monsters of the world that live on Social Media. The good natured insane people on Twitter that like to tell everyone how and what to think. Who will happily like to dictate who or what you’ll create and if you’re not careful they will betray you too.
After so many days of waiting, The J-Man looks into the WB Monster Verse films, and discusses Godzilla (2014), Kong Skull Island (2015), and Godzilla KOTM (2019. He also takes some anecdotes with Filmmaking in general, and how entertainment is all about just enjoying pleasures that the films give you. There’s also three gaming recommendations and he mentions a little tidbit that J360 is going dark for at least a week.
This week the J-Man picks up the pieces and presents a Double Special for you.
Tonight we’re discussing some great animated features leading to the holiday, because apparently J doesn’t do any family friendly activities. J even discusses some creepy cartoons he’s seen growing up.
