"Happy Halloween Scooby Doo"

  Happy October to all you movie lovers. Its been a busy month with getting costumes planned, a seasonal job about to start and checking out new featured movies like this one that has become a favorite with my youngest. Yet let's see if Mystery Inc. can find the clues that will lead them to a good rating on this blog.  Linked up with the last featured films we find the gang back in Crystal Cove on Halloween in the middle of a case during the Halloween parade with the parade marshal being none other than Elvira, Mistress of the Dark (Cassandra Peterson). After an all out fright with explosions, flying candy and good teamwork on the part of the gang members Fred, Velma and Daphne (Frank Welker, Kate Micucci and Grey Griffin) with Shaggy and Scooby's (Matthew Lillard and Frank Welker) "contribution" they apprehend the villain who turns out to be The Scarecrow a.k.a. Dr. Johnathan Crane (Dwight Schultz) (yes, a Batman villain).  With the case wrapped up, the gang goes abo

"Justice League Dark: Apokolips War" versus "Deathstroke Knights and Dragons: The Movie"

  Welcome once again to MoVTie Critic's "Movie Versus" where I take two films with similar themes, actors or plots and have them go head to head for the best rating of Green Mountain Stars. Today we have two films from the DC Universe that are not your typical Superman, Batman or even Wonder Woman films because they look towards the darker side with heroes or in one case an anti-hero like Constantine and Deathstroke being the primary characters and stories not so black and white with good defeating evil. So suit up, cause here we go. "Justice League Dark: Apokolips War" Leaving off from last film "Justice League Dark" with the Justice League making the fateful decision to take the fight to the dangerous planet Apokolips to face is tyrant ruler Darkseid (Tony Todd) and his ruthless army. With the entire group of heroes on board and the Teen Titans being the last line of Earth's defense, they charge straight into battle when the most unthinkable thin

  Hello movie lovers out there. It's been a long time since I've done a post. Like so many people out there I've been going through my challenges because of the isolation and restrictions of Covid-19 mainly with my eldest son who has ASD and didn't care for being kept at home. Now that things are beginning to find a calm, I decided it was time to get back to one of the things I love and have missed, writing. Now without further to do, I'd like to get to one of the latest films released that has been the talk of many horror fans have been on edge to see, Antebellum. Opening up to what appears to be an oppressive cotton plantation set in the south in the time of the Civil war, Eden (Janelle Monae) has been captured after trying to escape from her captors where slaves are not allowed to speak without permission and is beaten by the general only known as "Him" (Eric Lange) while her fellow escapees a man known as Eli (Tongayi Chirisa) is beaten and his wife is

"The Night Clerk"

People who live with Autism Spectrum Disorder or ASD has been on the rise in the last decade. It ranges from person to person from those who rarely speak to those who are super observant and could be classified as being a genius. One thing many share is the difficulty to be social with other people causing them anxiety and not being able to relate to others. Many find ways to deal with their difficulties, such as observation, yet one must be careful, otherwise they may see something someone might kill for. Bart Bromely (Tye Sheridan) is the night clerk for a hotel. Living with autism has made it a challenge to talk with other people, but his job allows him to be alone most nights which gives him time to do practice being in social situations with people. One method he's found to do this is to observe people from hidden cameras in their rooms watching from his laptop. Yet he gets more than he bargained for one night when after his shift one night he observes a woman being murd

"DCU Superman: Red Son"

Hello movie lovers. Let me start off by saying that I hope you all are doing well out there and I apologize for my lack of reviews. I've had to take on the role of educator on top of my mom role for my two boys which has made it hard to find time to sit down and write anything these days. However, I've been able to catch up on some movie watching as I'm sure many of you have and have some great films to tell you about, so I'm hoping to hit with a few this weekend. So, let me hit the ground running faster than a speeding bullet with a Superman movie like you've never seen him. In this take on the Man of Steel, we find him in an alternate reality where his ship sent from Krypton has landed in the heart of Russia and becomes the symbol of the Soviet Union. Yet when Superman (Jason Isaacs) is informed of some classified information by American news reporter Lois Lane (Amy Acker) with the help of her well connected husband Lex Luthor (Diedrich Bader) he finds the d

"Rabid" (2019)

Hello all you movie lovers out there. I'm sure many of you are bummed and a little worried with the Corona virus going around and postponing movie premieres and avoiding the movie theaters a little frustrating with all the great films that are supposed to be coming out. Still we can enjoy a film at home and reflect how art can imitate life and vise versa. "Contagion" and "Outbreak" are prime examples to relate how things seem right now as well as this film I recently viewed that while it might stir up some fears will also remind you that we're lucky this virus has a high survival rate compared to what occurs in this film. Rose (Laura Vandervoort) is a timid woman with aspirations of being a fashion designer and having her work be the next thing on the runway, but she's treated by many as a joke including her boss Gunter (Mackenzie Gray). One evening, one of her biggest hopes finally happens when her office crush Brad (Benjamin Hollingsworth) the ph

"Snatchers"

Navigating your teen years can feel like a battle in itself with the struggles of school, popularity and the social acceptance and expectations of those around you. Most of us make a few mistakes but manage to get out of it without a scrape, others seem to manage to bring about the end of the world in their mind, yet in this case it just might happen. Sara Steinburg (Mary Nepi) is a social seeking girl who wants nothing more to start the new school year off with a bang which includes finally losing her v-card to popular jock Skyler Cole (Austin Fryberger). It seems like Sara finally has her social standing until the next morning she wakes up to find herself nine months pregnant. Unable to tell her new friends like mean-spirited Kiana (Ashley Argota), Skyler or even her mom Kate (J.J. Nolan), she seeks help from her former friend Hayley Chamberlain (Gabrielle Elyse) who agrees to take her to a clinic. In the midst of seeking answers, Sara delivers an alien creature with the powe
