I snark about things. I'm also a señorita who used to have picture of D-List actors as her avatar. Now it's a pen. So... expect greatness from me. Or something.

Bad Moviethon #21 – Power Rangers (2017)


Potentially Bad Moviethon 

#21

…in which I examine if bad movies really deserve their woeful rotten tomatoes score

Power Rangers | 2017

Five ordinary teens must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so, they will have to overcome their real-life issues and before it’s too late, band together as the Power Rangers.

This has a 45% score on Rotten Tomatoes, which is probably more than it deserves. 

It reminded me of the original movie. I think I reviewed that here, but I can’t find it. 

That movie was basically A BUNCH OF KIDS WITH POWERS DISAPPEAR OFF WORLD FOR MOST OF THE MOVIE BEFORE COMING BACK TO SAVE THEIR TOWN. 

That’s basically the same thing happening in the new movie. 

The villain was not called Ivan Ooze so I don’t care about her. She was terrible anyway. 

There are some updates – tokenism. The black kid ticks the diversity and character on the spectrum boxes. The Latina ticks the diversity and LGBT boxes. The male, white protagonist is the one that saves the day or whatever. His drama is that he can’t carry the entire football team on his back or something. The female protagonist is a reformed bully. 

I lost track of all of these characters and their storylines after a while. 

All in all it’s a very underwhelming movie. The special effects were decent until the big scene at the end. It looked cheap and fake. I couldn’t make sense of what was going on besides all of them almost being fried alive in their Zords. 

However, it kept me entertained and I watched it in one sitting. It was also kind of cool to see a modern Power Rangers movie.

Verdict: 4/10. Not great, but not overwhelmingly bad.

Obligatory ‘why is SPN still on?’ post


I think it’s been a few years since the last oblig post. I haven’t really kept up with the show beyond… well nothing. 

The last I heard, the last season was the best since the last season that was the best since whatever season anyone still watching the show decided they like last. It’s hard to get a straight answer from them. 

I imagine that’s because deep down inside they know that they’re watching garbage every week. 

Anyway. 

I’m guessing the O’Jays have the answer to my obligatory question. I guess the $PN Jays got to have it…

Bad Moviethon #20 – John Tucker Must Die 


(note: just realised that I owe a few people replies on the last supernatural post – I’ll get to it!…eventually…)

#20

…in which I examine if bad movies really deserve their woeful rotten tomatoes score

Rotten Score: 26%

Synopsis:

After discovering they are all dating the same same guy (Jesse Metcalfe), three popular students from different cliques band together for revenge, so they enlist the help of a new gal in town and conspire to break the jerk’s heart, while destroying his reputation.

This is basically the ultimate fuckboi movie. 

John Tucker is the quintessential high school quarterback hot stud douche. All the girls love him, all the guys want to be him. Everyone’s existence is dependent on him somehow. 

Somehow, a new girl swans into town and immediately identities John Tucker as a effboy because her mom has dated a long line of effboys (hence why they keep moving lollllll). 

Coincidentally, New Girl happens to work at a restaurant for five minutes and determines that John Tucker has three girlfriends. She also manages to get herself in detention with those three girls and the nasty truth is revealed. 

To make things worse, John Tucker dumps all of them with the same speech. 

New girl then helps them concoct their ultimate revenge plan – destroy his rep and when that fails, make John Tucker fall in love and then cruelly reveal it was all a trick. 

The new girl is basically one huge deux ex machina. She even sets the pace for her own happy ending by crushing on John Tucker’s brother early on. By the way, no one thought it was weird to make the other love interest the biological sibling of the main antagonist? 

Oh and no one thought that Penn Badgely’s hair was a huge no-no? 

Well. 

Actually, it was kind of cute. 

Anyway, after some hilarious hijinks in which John Tucker remains unbothered and unscathed, the movie ends up with him…remaining unbothered and unscathed. 

Yeah, he literally goes back to his fuckboi ways and everyone is like, ‘LOL, THAT GUY IS SOMETHING ELSE!’. He’s literally openly dating multiple people at the end of the film. 

The moral of the story seemed to be… you can’t con a conman because they have no moral compass?

Sadly, that’s true. However, this is movie. It was supposed to deliver me a dead John Tucker, but it didn’t and I am deeply disappointed. 

That being said, I think this movie warrants a 50% at least. 

It was entertaining and endearingly stupid and there was no noticeably bad acting. The soundtrack was cool, too. 

Verdict: 5/10

5 More Awesome Gift Ideas


Greetings, y’all. 

Have you met people that you now hate enough to spend large amounts of cash on stupid gifts they will never have any use for?

If the answer is yes, re-evaluate your life. 

If the answer is no, come this way. Let’s wrap. Or unwrap. Whatever. 

1. Samurai Pet Armor for Cats and Dogs

Small pet clothes
Price: US$ 223

Perhaps nothing says Japan quite like the Samurai Pet Armor for Cats and Dogs, which brings together Japan’s history and its love for small domestic animals. Unlike real armor, this is lightweight so your feline or canine friend won’t get (too) annoyed and will be happy to pose for unique photos. And when it’s not in use, you could hang the armor costume up as an item of wall decoration or even wrapped around a drink bottle. Available in four colors and three sizes.

I don’t know if this is really cool or really terrible, so… I’ll let y’all be the judge.

lethal weapon (season 2)


Before I started watching the second season I stumbled across an article on Clayne Crawford being fired. I read about all of the tension on set, the arguments and Clayne’s behaviour. Much was made of Damon’s demands, but you’d imagine those have been the same since day one. Aggressive behaviour? Not so much.

Misha Collins is the most amazing and kind person


Psych.

These kind of comments are always my favourite. The humble Supernatural fan stumbles across my blog and they unleash the fury.

That the post is from three years ago amuses me to no end. 

Here’s the full comment (link)

WTF HOW DARE YOU
I KNOW THIS IS OLD, BUT I NEED TO SAY THAT
Misha Collins is the most amazing & kind person.
So he do sometime stupid & unfunny jocks. This is doesn’t mean he deserves a death sentence for it. He is just HUMAN like all of us. He is kind, sweet happy person. SO HE DID BAD JOCK. HOW DARE YOU TO WITH DEATH FOR HIM, HE DOSN’T DESERVE THAT. IF U DON’T LIKE HIM, THAT FINE, IT’S YOUR CHOICE. BUT DON’T SAY SUCH THING, AS YOU WOULDN’T WANT BAD THINGS LIKE THAT WRITTEN ABOUT YOU BECAUSE A BAD JOKE. It’s disgusting to talk like that about a person. This is not the way to disagree with a person, to humiliate him, especially if that person is a kind and good, person who is trying his best to make the world a better place, and GISH is a greate example for that. So if you do not like it, it’s okay, but stop, just stop, he dosn’t deserve that.

In true Supernatural Snark fashion, here is the breakdown.

Wentworth Miller is tired


Ah, Wentworth Miller. 

I went to an all girls’ school and everyone was in love with him. Eventually, Prison Break ended and he fell off. I did hear that he’s on a bunch of CW shows now and that means one thing. 

He’s encountered the madness that is fandom. 

I have to post this because it has everything. I don’t know whether to laugh, cry or scratch my head in bemusement.  (more…)

Dear White People


Originally written 18th January. I watched the first episode and wasn’t really interested enough to continue, but I did write a review! If anyone does watch it, I’d be interested in hearing what you think. Does it get better? (more…)

Bad Products, cont. 


Just in time for… whatever major holiday is coming next? 

Anyway, let’s dive in. 

1. Asahi Clear Latte Coffee-Flavored Water (Pack of 12)
Espresso extract and milk taste
Price: US$ 21

I don’t have a copy of the description but clear flavoured water that tastes like coffee? No. No. No and no. Nope. I can just make a mug of coffee and then refill my cup with water and voila. Coffee water. Why would anyone even want to drink coffee flavoured water anyway?! I reject this water on…coffee grounds (pun intended). (more…)

lift etiquette


Yes, I’m British and we say lift. For any persnickety Americans or wherever else-ians, I’m talking about elevators. 

This isn’t so much an investigation as it is me wondering why traveling in lifts is more complicated than it needs to be. 

The most irritating part is people not letting those inside the lift get out before they shove their way in. 

And then they have the nerve to look at you like you’ve gotten in their way. Are they stupid? 

Rhetorical question. (more…)
