[Series] Castlevania

Title: Castlevania
Genre: Horror, Fantasy, Action, Adventure
Based on: Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse
Directed: Sam Deats
Country: United States
Language: English

A brave and smart woman named Lisa captures the dark lord’s, Dracula’s heart, from the moment she dared to knock on his castle door, asking for knowledge on medicine, so she could heal people. They end up teaching each other, of medicine, humanity, and what it is to be a mortal man. After a while Lisa manages to persuade Dracula to go, and see the world for himself, see it as mortals do. Yet this transformative journey becomes a tragedy worthy of an apocalypse he swears to bring upon mankind. For in his absence, ignorant masses, led by a fool priest who’d not know God’s will if it slapped him in the face, capture Lisa, and burn her at stake as a witch.

Belmont family is disgraced and hated. They were once famous monster hunters. For all his current worth, Trevor Belmont is still of kind heart, and good skill. A skill he, and everyone who hated his family too, their name, will soon dearly want and need. For, you can imagine, The Dark Prince has kept his word to open the gates of hell upon Earth.

I loved it enough to watch it twice in one night. The fact that this season is made out of four episodes that add up to less than two hours of content, did help too. The jokes, if a bit oddly executed, were funny. And you really don’t need any previous knowledge on the games. The old ones are 2D side-scrollers, you need emulators for those, or those old consoles, and likely adapters for your nice new TV’s, and maybe a 6 year old, because I tried, and I couldn’t pass the very first boss. The newer ones, the proper ones that you can get on Steam – I don’t know whether there’s any relation to this story in them.

Anyway, loved it. And not just because of Dracula.

[Movie] The Hitman’s Bodyguard

Directed: Patrick Hughes
Release: 2017
Country: United States
Language: English

Friends took me to watch this movie, and I am so glad, and grateful for that wonderful one-day vacation I had. I loved this movie, from the characters, to the jokes, to the car stunts, to the locations, to the plot twists that were kinda hilarious.

The only man alive who could testify against the ruthless dictator is one of the most infamous hitmans alive. Interpol is entrusted to take him to court, where he will testify as per agreement that his wife gets to walk free after that. And while he is all the way motivated to get to the place, they insist on very heavy security. But as we know, the more people are involved, the more chances of failure. The information on transfer gets leaked, and agent Amelia Roussel is left alone with the most wanted killer. There’s no one she can trust, until they figure out who sold them out. So she resorts to outside help. Her ridiculous but good at his bodyguard job ex, Michael Bryce, who, as you may guess, is no other than Deadp… I mean Ryan Reynolds.

Neither the hitman, Kincaid, nor the bodyguard, Bryce, are happy about the arrangement. But Bryce has a chance to restore his name as a bodyguard, after that last incident, where he went from hero to zero in a matter of seconds that took for his client to get shot in what seemed a safe zone. And Kincaid still hopes his wife will get her freedom. Yet as they keep moving forwards, that motivation is less, and less appealing, as they get on each other’s nerves, all the while somehow getting hunted by the enemies. How in the world they keep finding them?!

I saw the ratings of this movie, but let me tell you, this is an easiest comedy-action movie you can watch that you haven’t seen five times before. And the actors play together so well! Oh, and real car stunts!

Summary: 02-08

This week just up and disappeared, I tell you. I don’t even know what really happened, other than me being drowned in work, and some people making fools of themselves. Well, let’s see anyway:

  • I finished second season of Lucifer on Netflix, currently here it’s the last one, tho some people already have the third one.
  • Second book of Witcher was re-printed, but right now I’ve nothing to spare, so I’ll kindly wait. Yet I am looking forward to the trip to the local bookstore to get it!
  • Pulled a muscle, and it hurts like hell.
  • Tidied up more of my crafting supplies, and made a gorgeous little thing with a dragon on it.
  • Got through a week of Inktober successfully, and am pretty sure I’ll do NaNoWriMo, tho I’m really not sure if I’ll make it public.
  • It’s cold, wet, and rainy out here, and I’m not happy about it at all. Mum is catching a cold. She had a biopsy on Tuesday, but we don’t know the results yet.
  • I’m almost in the 90s of read books this year, I think I’m hitting my records by the end of the year.
  • Watched “Unfriended” and I’m pretty sure that was the worst crap I have ever seen. But then I read “Do Androids Dream Electric Sheep”, and I loved it, so it fixed my mood a bit.
  • I’m wearing two pairs of socks, and am cold.

[Web Series] Buddy System | S1

Rhett and Link’s “Buddy System” (Season 1)
Genre: Comedy, Adventure
Directed: John Fortenberry
Country: United States
Language: English

I’m a long term fan of Rhett and Link. I love their simple humor, terrible adventures with food, and silly misunderstandings. So when they announced they’re making a series, I was stoked. But it took me a while to actually watch them, all thanks to the location I’m in, so, yeah, I’m a bit late, but this was so good, people!

One day, post work, after the adventures they got into due to new found confidence of their shirts tucked into their underwear (watch the first episode, it’s free), Rhett and Link find themselves in a lot of trouble. Link lost his phone, and it ended up in the hands of their evil ex. Yes, both of their ex. And this innovative queen of infomercials is tarnishing their good name on Good Mythical Morning! Even other YouTubers noticed, and started bashing Rhett and Link: how could they have sold out this badly? Do they not care about their loving fans at all?

So Rhett and Link get onto the quest of getting Link’s phone back, getting their channel back, restoring their good names, and just, in general, fixing this bad, bad mess. While on it, they’ll get into the rabbit holes of finding their inner selves, fight evil beings, witness real magic in action, fight in a roller blader vs roller skater war, and entertain us with many great musical bits.

This was even better than I hoped for. I laughed, I jammed to good beats, and I did not expect THAT! There were awesome guest stars, and great people on set. Only the highest ratings from me.

5/5

[Series, S1] Lucifer

Genre: Mystery, Comedy, Horror, Fantasy
Based on: Characters created for Vertigo
Country: United States
Language: English
Season 1

I got this recommended to me by a lovely friend, but kept it on “sometime” list, for when I had better means to watch it. Then it appeared on Netflix, and I had no more excuses, so I went ahead and watched it. And I loved it!

Lucifer Morningstar got bored of hell, and misconception of what he is, or why things happened to him. So he decided to have some fun upstairs. Contrary to the twisted beliefs, Lucifer is not evil, but rather a punisher of evil, so his fun is not that far off from our fun. Parties, drinks, dances, bodies. Sin away, darlings, preferably with him.

His fun gets a spiked, and a tad more interesting when he runs into a detective. She won’t fall under his spells. Hell, she even counteracts his magic somehow, making him more human. More flesh, more mortal, blood and all. Meaning, he could actually die if someone killed him with her in the proximity. And Luci’s just not one to quit playing with fire, if the fire feels new.

The only dilution to his wonderful time is his brother from up-up stairs. An angel sent down to ask or persuade, or otherwise get Lucifer back into hell for duties. Duty-bound, and duty-blind angel goes to extreme lengths in attempt to fulfill his mission, and forgets to wonder the big question: what’s too far? What’s too far for an angel?

Really, this was one fun ride, especially the finale of it. I really can’t wait for the next season to happen on Netflix, I know it’s already out some place else, and it bothers me a bit. If you want something light, fun, funny, Good Omens, Crowley-y – go watch Lucifer.
