You have to give “Jigsaw” credit: it delivers exactly what you would expect from an eighth “Saw” film. The plot is absurd, the traps are ingenious and gory, and the actors manage to keep a straight face for the whole film. Set 10 years after “Saw 3D: The Final Chapter,” it chronicles a new set of tortures and killings. They would seem to be the handiwork of Jigsaw (Tobin Bell), but he died of cancer, right? Although the storyline is not very surprising, the film is slicker than the previous films and moves a lot faster. I don’t think horror fans will be disappointed with this entry. If you like any of the “Saw” movies, check “Jigsaw” out!
If you think you would enjoy a cross between “Pet Sematary” and “The Changeling,” you’re in luck because “The Other Side of the Door” is a spooky flick! It’s about an American family living in India who lose their youngest child in a tragic accident. Devastated by the loss of the child, the mother learns of a way she can talk to her son one last time. It involves digging up his body, cremating it, and taking the ashes to a creepy temple. The mother can talk to her son there but there’s a catch: don’t open the temple door! As you can probably guess, the mother opens the door, and the terror begins! This is a very well-acted and directed movie and it is unique that it is set in India. The director made the recent “47 Meters Down” and is someone to watch. While not a masterpiece, “The Other Side of the Door” works very well and recommended to horror fanatics everywhere! And remember: don’t open the door!
“The Snowman” is getting really bad reviews, but if you like gruesome thrillers, you are in for a treat! Set in Norway and similar to “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” the film is about a killer so twisted he melds snowmen with dead body parts. Ridiculous, yes, but I was hooked! As the killer picks on vulnerable, usually pregnant women, I reflected that this was a killer I really hated! Who can find and stop this devious madman? Why, Harry Hole, alcoholic detective, perfectly played by Michael Fassbender. He almost seems like he could be a killer himself. As private eye and killer go mano a mano, Rebecca Ferguson and Charlotte Gainsbourg give us women on distress worth caring about.
Based on a best-selling novel that is part of a series, “The Snowman” indeed has the feeling of a trashy paperback thriller. That’s not a bad thing. Thrillers work best when they’re not afraid of being outrageous, so this film starts out weird and then works its way to a memorably bizarre, gruesome climax. Although the film may not exactly be “good,” the cast and director push themselves and create a memorable experience. If you like trashy thrillers and prefer Michael Fassbender to wusses like Dwayne Johnson, go see “The Snowman.”
A paddock regards the area a horse can roam by its stable, like a coral. Stephen Paddock, the Vegas shooter, was nothing short of a character from an Ian Fleming novel. He was a workhorse for the CIA. If you can think for yourself and read between the tea leaves it is easy to spot.
The mainstream media is guilty of neglect in terms of its post coverage of the Vegas massacre. The narrative that the lone gunman was a loner who made his fortune from video poker is laughable. In the alternative media further investigation has shown that Paddock had worked for Lockheed Martin on patents, as well as with a CIA private jet transport company Janus Airlines. His fortune was likely from the mob or the CIA, relating to his private jet charter charity and front company called Paradise Ranch LLC. Paradise Ranch was a go between for his Vegas and Philippines operations where he ran a non-profit org. supposedly befitting children. Surprise! His brother just got arrested for child porn. Throw in 20 some odd guns, $5 million in cash (plus more in real estate) from out of nowhere and you start to see that this guy was clearly a spook. No wonder the media is so hush hush and disinterested in any follow-up stories about the shooter whatsoever. The guy also had a wife from ISIS infested Philippines and had travel to the ME on many cruises of late. The amount of circumstantial evidence that Paddock had really bad friends (like ISIS and the CIA) is paramount.
I will add a link to this article very soon which contains tons of information on all of this so that you can dig and verify and do some investigative journalism of your own on this topic. Groin gets to the bottom of everything!

Many of the formerly top secret files on the JFJ assassination were made public today.
Among the many revelations were evidence that Jack Ruby was a communist party member very actively, and that he was likely more connected to Oswald than previously believed.
Also the Kremlin believed Lyndon Johnson was behind the plot. Some documents also point to George Bush I having lied about not being in Dallas that day.
Finally, there was investigation of a second shooter from the bridge, rather than from the grassy knoll.
I will tell you what really happened. The Bay of Pigs was a disaster, which in many ways triggered the Cuban missile crisis (which threatened the world to the brink of nuclear war). Word leaked out about the CIA’s planned Bay of Pigs long before the failed invasion of Cuba by the American trained mercenaries. Freedom of Information Act releases in the early 2000’s showed that Castro knew just from reading American newspapers that the invasion by US trained merc’s was immanent. All the invaders were killed in the failed coup attempt and the CIA was totally embarrassed. So the CIA and Castro both had motive to kill Kennedy, presumably to stop nuclear war between the US and the USSR.
The assassination of JFK was orchestrated by Castro and the CIA, and pulled off by the mob, who were paid to do the hit. Ruby was from the mob, Oswald was CIA, and the CIA also provided the intel. to Oswald regarding the president’s motorcade route in Dallas on that fate full day 11-22-63.
Saudi Arabia has granted the first robot citizenship globally:
At the conference a journalist asked the fembot about its consciousness. The bot responded by asking the human how it knew it was a human.
The Sauds have a futuristic vision of renewable energy and robotics fueling their future prosperity. This particular robot was made in Japan and is very hyper conscious, as well as intent on bettering the lives of humans. The EU had also granted ‘rights’ to robots earlier this year. However, this is the first specific robot to have been granted citizenship anywhere that I know of.
There are three things every guy needs in life. Those three things are a cool ride, a cool pad, and a sexy and willing companion. Throughout the course of your life all three of these things will eat up a considerable chunk of your life savings. In this article Groin will mathematically show you how to get ahead in life in every regard financially, so that you can be sitting on piles of cash (or precious metals).
Having a place to live is expensive. If you own you own property taxes, home owners fees, maintenance, etc. If you rent there is a deposit and expensive monthly payments. The answer is to own a houseboat. With a houseboat like those in Moss Landing you get a pad with nice ambience, at half the price of a manufactured home, and docking fee like 400 bucks a month (including water and electricity). For you this is a WIN!
Now lets talk transportation. To win in life one must take risks! Motorcycles are cheap and risky. Thus you should ride a motorcycle and save on gas and stuff like that so that you can build your cash-pile.
Finally, we can talk about women. Women are great , but they are expensive. Long after the first expensive date, you owe her for birthdays, anniversaries, vacations, outings, and what have you. You will always be on the hook! And even if you have a ten inch dong and treat her like the Great Gatsby with riches, this will only make her more expensive. If you are poor or rich, she will use the legal system to get at you. Plus she will argue for hours on end.
The solution to this is to take out your credit card and order a sexbot for two thousand bucks. You can splurge for the other 1500 and order the CPU (brain) so she can talk and have a programmable personality. Yes you may owe interest on her and there could be some maintenance. But she will not argue back. No anniversaries. No birthdays. No expensive dates. She will never make you drive real far to meet her then get mad and you have to drive back. None of that! No jealousy. No asking ‘how do i look’ , or ‘send me a pic;’. And this will add to your mystique as you bring real women home for the threesome. You can refer to her as your ‘sexy shipmate’.
So there you have it. The answer to how to achieve success on the cheap. Simply buy a houseboat, ride a motorcycle, and have a sexbot for your companion and you will live to be healthy, wealthy, and wise!
After completing the purchase of half of all Rite Aid stores, Walgreens is closing nearly a third of them. https://www.newsmax.com/thewire/walgreens-closing-stores-600/2017/10/25/id/822120/
Walgreens acquired 2000 stores recently from Rite Aid and is closing 600 of them , saying they are too close to their Walgreens locations. This is blatantly anti-competitive and Walgreens should be broken up for anti-trust violations as a result. Rite Aid shareholders already have gotten screwed as their shares lost 75% of their value year after year, due to a shitty CEO. The CEO and management have made out like bandits with all these deals and left the shareholders and the workers as the bag holders. It is time the Trump administration made an example of these unscrupulous unethical jerks and broke their company up into tiny parts, preferably into mom and pop stores. These transactions of late demonstrate exactly what is wrong with the American economy. Its all about monopolizing and screwing the workers and shareholders of smaller companies.
Sometimes you can find very interesting films you haven’t heard about by glancing at the shelves of Walmart and Best Buy. “Blood Father” starring Mel Gibson and William H. Macy is one such film. It finds Mel reaching back to his “Mad Max” and “Lethal Weapon” glory days as a former alcoholic and drug addict who is just out of jail and trying to walk the straight and narrow path. Unfortunately, his daughter has fallen in with some dangerous Mexican criminals. When she shoots her psychotic boyfriend and escapes, her estranged dad is the only person she can go to. Fortunately, even a reformed Mel Gibson is still quite the badass.
This film works on two levels. It’s a violent, bloody action thriller AND the story of a father and his daughter. Mel Gibson is the film’s greatest asset because, B-movie or not, he plays it for real. His tenderness towards his daughter makes for a nice contrast with the violent action scenes. This film shows up “Taken” with Liam Neeson as the wimpy flick that it is. Unlike that one, “Blood Father” has real stakes and the ending is not predictable. Mel proves that he is still as adept in front of the camera as he is behind it in “Hacksaw Ridge.” If you want a thrilling, bloody action thriller, watch “Blood Father.”
Sometimes I am in the mood for another ridiculous disaster film. “Geostorm” certainly qualifies. This is a disaster of a disaster film. It managed to get shelved by the studio for three years after production, probably because they correctly assumed it would bomb. And yes, it has bombed domestically. Having received the rare zero star review from Rex Reed, only time will tell if the film’s international cast and left wing ideological perspective will generate a better reception abroad.
Directed by the writer-producer of “Independence Day” and “The Day After Tomorrow,” it is about a future where weather satellites have become necessary due to man-made bad weather. Unfortunately, the satellites begin to malfunction, resulting in parts of the Middle East freeing, tsunamis in Brazil, China burning, etc.. Only Gerard Butler and his less charismatic brother Jim Sturgess can prevent a “geostorm,” the mother of all storms. This film is basically like Independence Day but without the aliens, crossed with the classic disaster film like Airport or Earthquake. The directing has a great style because it is so obviously hokey and tongue in cheek that it plays like a 1950’s sci-fi B movie.
The timing of this film’s release is interesting when you consider all of the natural disasters which hit the US this year. The (idea in the movie) that global warming is causing this is hokey and irritating, but once you get past that you realize the film implicates the deep state in harmful weather modification.
The movie begins as left-wing propaganda about global warming, complete with little girl leftist voiceover. A bunch of BS about how the global community has to get together to save the world occurs. Then it turns into hidden propaganda about the deep state trying to destroy the world through weather modification in order for financial gain. Andy Garcia (who saves the world of course) is the President, and Ed Harris (deep state) is Secretary of state. Both act well. In the 90s there were films with great casts like this, but we don’t get to see an ensemble like this as often anymore.
By the end of the film, we have seen every kind of disaster one could think of, and it all makes about as much sense as “Highland er 2: The Quickening.” There are annoying parts such as the obligatory promise the daughter you will return from outer space BS. Yet the film redeems itself with its stellar cast, awesome special effects, hokey national security “we need to warn the president” type fun, and funny sense of humor. There is also the stereotypical multinational and multiethnic space crew thing, including a female character named Fassbender, who we can only imagine is a Hollywood inside joke.
Though this movie actually may have been better had aliens saved the earth, I still enjoyed the film as a guilty pleasure and absurd escapism. It’s not good, but I’ve seen a lot worse. If you want to see a silly but fun disaster movie, I recommend “Geostorm.”
