        Ash Vs. Evil Dead

       (my review/opinion) 

      Written by: Cool Man 

One of my favorite shows. I absolutely loved the three seasons. I also loved the movies as well. Though I really need to view the third movie, Army of Darkness.  

From the beginning; The Evil Dead is an old school horror movie (1983) starring Bruce Campbell. The location is in an old cabin in the woods, and within, is a book  (Necronomicon X- Mortis) 

with capability to create monsters and demons. The books powers can possess and reanimate you to what is known as a “Deadite.”  

In the movie Ashley (the protagonist, aka Ash) goes to a cabin with his friends. There they stumble across a book and read from it. After so, they unleashed evil.  

In part two (spoilers,) Ash traversed through time to medieval times, and that’s where I need to see what happens. He probably becomes a hero, awes the folks, and slay the demons.  

In the series, he read from the book again to impress a chick, he becomes charismatic, meets some friends, fights evil, and goes through all these schematics. The series ends off with a big cliffhanger. That was a bit irritating. It’s not until April 20th of next year when they’ll reveal if season four is confirmed. I would be very disappointed of it was officially discontinued.  

I streamed the movies on Hulu, the series on Netflix.  

The series/movies are also is rated R, MA, because of the strong violence, strong language, adult material/humor, nudity. (So, caution,) 

unless you’re not susceptible of such films.  

Review of 1917 teaser & more.

 Written By: Carlos Emilio Hultsch Martinez

The upcoming movie 1917 has made a lot of excitement due to a very intriguing teaser. As expectations arise, here is a brief overview of the movie and its teaser. The movie is set to be released in Christmas of 2019; directed by Sam Mendes and starred by George MacKay, Dean-Charles Chapman and Benedict Cumberbatch. The teaser narrates the story of two friends, Blake and Schofield, who are from the British Royal Army during WWI. These two friends are given orders from their superiors to inform the second battalion of 1600 British soldiers that they are walking into a trap held by the Germans. The issue is that one of the protagonist’s brother is in that battalion and they have barely one day to deliver this message. Along the way, they will face countless challenges that will test these young soldiers’ determination and will. The teaser is very dramatic and curiously, gives a very concise section of the movie’s plot. What many expect from this movie is a very realistic adaptation of the environment and emotions felt during the “Great War.” So far, it seems like it, the cast is superb and the appreciation for detail, and the will to portray a true and powerful movie are core ingredients for what seems to be, will be an excellent movie.

Here is a link so that you can see the teaser.

The Shadow Brothers Review: The value of family

Written by Carlos Emilio Hultsch Martinez

The Shadow Brothers is a book written by American author A.E. Cannon in 1990. The story of the book is centered around the lives of two teenager brothers: Henry and Marcus. Henry is a Navajo teenager who is adopted by Marcus’s Mormon family. Henry and Marcus have lived together since age 7, since then, Henry and Marcus have been best friends. Despite their differences, Marcus always refers to Henry as his Brother, always forgetting that to the rest, they look different.

A.E. Cannon writes in the perspective of Marcus, a White, traditionally raised teen who as many teenagers; struggles at school, is insecure, and is confused about how he feels about Diana, his neighbor and friend. To make matters worse, Henry is dating the school’s most popular girl, and is confused by his Navajo origin due to Frank, a new Hopi student that is unfriendly to Henry. Marcus and Henry must learn to cope with their problems and remain united in their struggles. Is in this environment that A.E. Cannon writes about the strength of family and how despite adversity, trust and affection between brothers is stronger than any issue. A.E. Cannon portrays teenagers’ struggles in an honest and clever way, using first perspective in her narration and focusing on vocabulary to identify the characters’ feelings. The book is very fluid and full of emotional volatility, inviting readers to appreciate the story. These strategies really help Cannon in her message, helping the audience feel comfortable and engaged. The book is not very famous, but it’s one of those unknown books that have a lot of value. Even when it’s not very famous, this is one Cannon’s best books, along with Amazing Grace and The loser’s guide to life and love. I recommend you read it, especially if you feel that you’re struggling in your life. I

assure you that this book will give you a lot of humor and a positive time. Reading this marvelous book will hopefully help you appreciate family and its meaning

What can Star Wars fans expect out of Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker?
Written By: Carlos Emilio Hultsch Martinez

Finally, the last of episode of the modern sequel of Star Wars is upon us. Amid the release of two teasers during the last months, the expectations for the movie are as high as it had ever seen. Star Wars fans are intrigued, for the previous movie Episode VIII: The Last Jedi received mixed opinions from the fanbase and are counting on director J.J. Abrams, director of Episode VII: The Force Awakens, to return the Star Wars franchise to the direction the fans expect to. The release of Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker comes as Disney’s second main course after the hyper-successful Avengers: Endgame. In relation to Star Wars, Disney plans to release the series Mandalorian, Season 7 of the Clone Wars: animated series, and an Obi-wan series on its new streaming service: Disney +, set to be launched on November 12. The two Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker released teasers have awakened the fans’ curiosity with new main details. The teasers show Rey, the protagonist, in a more mature and prepared phase of her Jedi training because Rey seems to have grown in strength and force abilities in Jakku, place where Episode VII: The Force Awakens occurred. The movie will also show Kylo Ren, the main antagonist, return to its darker version as a Sith as seen in Episode VII: The Force Awakens. It seems that the plot will turn around Rey along with her allies, Finn and Poe Dameron, travel thru the galaxy in search for new allies to rebuild the new resistance to impose Kylo Ren’s regime known as the First Order. The teaser also shows the character Lando, performed by Billy Dee Williams, as a mentor for the new resistance; the re-appearance of this character seems to be a main point of attraction for fans as well as the possible death of Princess Leia, the last member of the original lineage of the Skywalker. As we can see, the new movie will have a plot turnaround to close this process of the modern sequel of Star Wars. The teasers gained a lot of excitement form Star Wars fans, but not from the general public, in comparison to Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Hopefully, Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker lives to the expectations of the fans. The movie is set to be released worldwide on December 20.

Selena Gomez “Lose you to Love Me”

By: Katelyn Diharce

 

The tea was spilled when Selena Gomez released her new song called “Lose you to Love Me” her fans and those who listen to her song connect that the song was about past relationship with Justin Bieber. Recently Justin Bieber got married to Hailey Baldwin and people are saying that Selena should not have released her music video if it was about Justin, she should just have left it because it should be in the past. Fans are saying that she needs to leave their relationship alone, but others are saying that she should be free to express what happened to her. She needs to be able to express what she feels after all, she is an artist. What do you think?

 

[Verse 1]

You promised the world and I fell for it

I put you first and you adored it

Set fires to my forest

And you let it burn

Sang off-key in my chorus

'Cause it wasn't yours

I saw the signs and I ignored it

Rose-colored glasses all distorted

Set fire to my purpose

And I let it burn

You got off on the hurtin'

When it wasn’t yours, yeah

[Pre-Chorus]

We'd always go into it blindly

I needed to lose you to find me

This dancing was killing me softly

I needed to hate you to love me, yeah

 

[Chorus]

To love love, yeah

To love love, yeah

To love, yeah

I needed to lose you to love me, yeah

To love love, yeah

To love love, yeah

To love, yeah

I needed to lose you to love me

[Verse 2]

I gave my all and they all know it

You turned me down and now it's showing

In two months, you replaced us

Like it was easy

Made me think I deserved it

In the thick of healing, yeah

 

[Pre-Chorus]

We'd always go into it blindly

I needed to lose you to find me

This dancing was killing me softly

I needed to hate you to love me, yeah

 

[Chorus]

To love love, yeah

To love love, yeah

To love, yeah

I needed to lose you to love me, yeah

To love love, yeah

To love love, yeah

To love, yeah

All About j Boog

by: Matthew Del Valle

Jerry Afemata also know as J boog was born and raised in Compton CA August 11,1985. He is the son of A Samoan chief and his large family has a huge impact on his career. J boog is the youngest of seven brothers and one sister. His sister is mainly the biggest impact on him because when they were young, she would play the piano and he would start to sing along and that’s where it all began. Whenever she came home with a Bob Marley songbook his siblings and him were exposed to the genres of music. The peaceful and calm sound was embraced by the whole Afemata family after that j boog was set on creating his own unique reggae sound. Some recommend songs are Sunshine Girl, Lonely Days and Lets do it again.

                                              Doom

                                             Eternal

                           News written by: Cool Man

The story of Doom is you get to play as an elite super soldier in a super suit, slaying off Demons. Relative to Wolfenstein in the intense sense, except, you’re Hell bound.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I played the 2016 version and it was fun as is. The original came out in ’93. Forth the classic was made to represent the perception of 3-D gameplay, like how Duke Nukem did.

 

The game’s thrilling if you’re into an action genre, and there’ll be an awesome upcoming campaign with the title.

The game itself comes out November this year, the 22nd. Available on all next gen platforms

(i.e. Switch, Xb1, PS4, PC.)

They’re introducing a battle mode into the construct, which wasn’t in the first release. There isn’t co-op, you fight the player-controlled demons alone instead. There will be upgrades, various maps, and asymmetrical gameplay.

 

And personally,

I have to say the ending to the 2016 release was very lame.

I really wish it was an option to punch Satan in the face.

Why You Must Listen to the New Lana Del Rey Album

By: Alexis Bennett
This year, so much music has been coming out that it has been almost impossible to keep up with. There has been astounding releases from movie soundtracks, to albums, to EPs, and even hot new singles. It can be difficult to find time to listen to all of it, but the first thing you should listen to is the new Lana Del Rey Album “Norman F*****g Rockwell”. It is a mix of slow, somber songs with a message and upbeat party songs. The album is perfect for any occasion, no matter who you are.
The album altogether is only slightly over an hour long and comprised of 14 killer songs. Lana Del Rey talks about losing lovers, moving across the country, partying, and overall just being sad while trying to live life. Aligning with her past albums, this album also has a unique sound that is recognizable as her style. My personal favorites off the album are “Happiness is a butterfly”, “Love song”, “Venice B***h”, and “F**k it I love you”. These songs are a part of the slower ones, but deliver a great message of falling in love and having it all ruined, and reminiscing afterwards.
Additionally, “Doin’ Time” was released as a single to promote the album. It is an upbeat song about partying in the summer and having a good time. It differs, in my opinion, from the vibe of the rest of the album. However, it offers a balance of happiness and sadness and makes the album overall more relatable. Life is full of ups and downs, similarly to the album. The rest of the songs included are more downbeat and serious, but are still amazing songs. Overall, this album is a great listen for anybody at any time. It is definitely my favorite album that has come out this year, as well as my favorite one of her albums that she has released to date. I would give it a 10/10 and greatly recommend it.

Cool Man’s Movie Review on:

The Dead Don’t Die

(Warning: Spoilers)

What a movie. I watched it with my dad. We both had high hopes for it. He made it sound like Bill Murray was going be like Rick Grimes, or Bill from Left 4 Dead. It wasn’t entirely like that. At the end he did, but throughout the movie, he hardly did, even though he was the main protagonist. Speaking of which, there was other stories of other people, like Selena Gomez. Humor and peril were apart, I wouldn’t say it so much was a thriller. I enjoyed the movie to an extent. There was just that bland element missing. If you’re family isn’t that sensitive to some gore and vulgar language, I’d say you could watch it with them. It seemed family enough, even though it’s rated R.

The movie came out earlier this year. Good actors.

Then, here comes spoilers, the movie took a very bad twist. The movie just took a spill. The Irish chick was an alien, UFO, fourth-wall break, main people died too easily.

Did they just spend the rest of the budget on drugs?

Did they want a unique ending?

Time constraint?

I wanted it to end by an escape, military arrives, or they at least die in glory. Besides a kind-of-whacked- out ending, the movie was good. Just, could use some improvements. But racist wise, I bet the studio is Canadian. (Terrance and Phillip)

 

6.5/10 Rating

IT

Chapter: 2 (Review) By: Cool Man

The movie was great. I enjoyed it, though there I saw it alone. (Minor Spoilers)

It’s about the kids all grown up, 27 years later. Pennywise arises and torments them, goes on his killing spree. For me, it was wicked, gruesome, twisted. There was also some comedy, from the funny guy of the movie. (I related to one of the characters.)

They must go back to there town to stop it, and there they relive the torment and free themselves from the curse.

I’d say if you’re sensitive to jump-scares, violence, horrific scenes, don’t watch it. The movie is also rated R.

I’d rate it 5/5

Maximum Overdrive

(Review Written By: Cool Man) (Minimum Spoilers)

Right off the back, great movie. I loved it. Hard to believe it came out in 19th Century (‘Eighty-Six.)

Feels like a more modern movie. The movie has the urban lifestyle vibe to it.

It is a Stephen King motion picture, literally. He directed the movie himself and done the screenplay.

The movie is about automotive and electronics that develop intelligence with intentions to massacre. (E.G; A Pop dispenser, lawn mower, Semi.)

The main setting is north-east, at a truck-stop, and the trucks themselves are forcing the people to fill them up. Diesel.

They also had this truck with a turret upon it with its own control, like a guard un-personified.

The movie isn’t appropriate for younger viewers. There was a few gruesome scenes and vulgar language.

Rate 8.5/10

Lucifer Review

By: Maria Nunez

Even though there is many options on what to watch and many genres I have always been a mystery type of person which if you also are you might be interested in watching the Netflix series Lucifer. This series is not like any other criminalistic tv show, in this series there is always more than one conflict which keeps the viewer interested. Lucifer the main character left hell to live life without having to be where his father sent him, but he did not expect to meet detective Decker and never expected to care so much for her. His issues were not only that he was slowly falling in love with the detective but when his brother then mother paid him a visit that’s when his real conflicts began. At the end of the day if you are looking for something to watch that has a bit of everything, I recommend the series Lucifer. At the end of a long day I look forward to going home to be able to this show because it makes me laugh and has many things that hook the viewer. This show is a must watch for any crime show fans and anyone who likes romcoms. I recommend this show and would give it a 5 out of 5 rating.

Everything you Should Know about American Horror Story:1984

By: Angel Jara

The new season of American Horror Story will be set to premiere on Wednesday September 18, 2019. You’re probably wondering, what is this new season going to be about? Well, the creators and directors are throwing this new season back to 1980s. The season will recreate or be based on the slasher films of the 1980s like Friday the 13th. American Horror Story has released many teaser trailers. They also released their official trailer.

Two of the actors form the previous seasons have been reported to not be in American Horror Story: 1984. Two of the actors are Even Peters and Billy Eicher, who starred in American Horror Story Cult and Apocalypse. Emma Roberts, Billie Lourd, Cody Fern, and Mathew Morrison are starring in this new season.

The Good Son

This movie was a great movie. It’s about this kid that moved with his other family, with his sister, while his dad, I think, went for his trip. Little did he know, the kid he was with was respected by his parents but took a serious advantage in that. It’s an old movie released in 1993. The film was produced in Massachusetts, because the house took place on a hillside, near the ocean. The town was very down, as in a ghetto way.

So, the boy, the troublemaker, takes the other kid who came to visit around the town, commits bad actions. No matter what he did, who couldn’t rat him out. I would be scared if I was in that position as well. There is a lot of depth and psychology within the movie. I don’t want to spoil it, for how good of a movie I feel it was.

I rate it, five popcorns, out of five. I am very fond of the concept, the plot, setting, ending. I get weird but cool vibes about it.
