"A Cure For Wellness" tells the story of Lockhart, an up and coming accounting firm guy who is blackmailed by his bosses to go to Switzerland to retrieve another member of the firm to take the fall for their mistake. While at this spa, Lockhart gets diagnosed with the same strange illness that plagues everyone at the wellness center. That's the basic story but there s a lot more to it than just that. Guys, I was incredibly disappointed by this movie and it's overall skippable in my opinion. If you want to know why and don't care about spoilers click after the break!
here, but here we review the trailer and see what we can gleam.

This movie was much better than it had any business being. I'm a huge "Power Rangers" mark so my initial reaction to the trailer and images were tentatively positive. As I said before this could either be really good or really bad and shockingly enough it was quite good, once again better than it had any business being. But I shouldn't have been surprised, Dean Israelite has handled stuff like this before in "Project Almanac" so having him at the helm gave me some confidence and it was well earned. So for a none spoiler review of this film, I give it a B, the characters were likable, and while everything moved pretty quickly, it wasn't so fast that it gave you whiplash. The acting was good, even scenery chewing Elizabeth Banks was perfect as Rita (and honestly with a name like Rita Repulsa it's almost expected). I had a good time with this movie albiet a few problems. That's a non-spoiler review, for a spoiler review go ahead and click after the break!

Self deprecation aside (but not concluded) because of my (EXTREMELY) poor decision to use Photobucket and because they are now asking that I pay $399.99 to continue to allow my images to continue to be visible I decided that effective immediately, ALL of my articles from 2015 and before will cease to be on this blog. Thankfully, I did not delete them, I merely restored them to Draft mode whilst I contemplated how exactly to move forward. But move forward I must. Lately, I don't have much I genuinely enjoy doing, I used to make Youtube videos until Youtube made it so I was just another schmoe in front of a camera. I used to do video reviews until Blip.tv decided to choose favorites and now sadly, I'm losing 5 years worth of articles & reviews...Poof! Gone because of one very bad decision.
Now one might be asking, why not just post the articles minus the text? Simple but that's still a TONE of work that in between my (figuratively) Hell job, the hours I'm home and functional and the small amount of time I can spend with my son, I'm none too keen on going through 5 years worth of articles and editing them. That and the pictures I post in the articles are VERY much so tied into the text its self and separating them would cause some articles to lose their context or their pictorial punchlines. This new change hurts me greatly because like I said it's 5 YEARS worth of reviews, articles, commentaries, insights, updates, plans and so much more. My "Pretty Little Liars" reviews, still the funniest things I've ever read are now gone, my "Hannibal" reviews (although incomplete) are gone, all my articles and insights on various movies and TV shows, GONE! I'm hurting, I'm not going to lie but I'm trying to look at this as a rebirth, not a death. So join me if you will in welcoming The Strangeverse Reborn 2017!

I don't ask for much, I had a plan to write 2 articles this weekend, one was a review for "A Cure For Wellness" and the other was about Predictability in movies. It's bad enough I work a job I loathe to the very core of my soul and I'm so exhausted I can barely spend time with my son because I gotta come home, eat and then go to bed but now I'm dangerously close to getting another favorite pass time taken from me. I stopped making Youtube videos because Youtube made it pretty much impossible for me to distinguish myself from other reviewers out there so I decided to blog, previously I was almost screwed over for my "Hannibal" reviews which inspired me to write my "Copyright Hell" article but NOW, Photobucket has all but gutted my blog for nearly EVERYTHING. I'm currently hosting my images on Imgur.com and that seems to be working out fine but I can't help but think the same thing will happen there. The image I have up now is hosted by Google, which I should just probably direct upload everything from now on but with the way all that Copyright bullshit has been going lately I wouldn't be shocked if they screwed me over eventually as well.
I'm losing confidence in a lot of crap these days and blogging was a nice and fun way to be my opinions on various topics out in the public sphere, if that gets taken away from me I'll just be another schmuck watching TV talking to his loved ones about TV shows they haven't seen nor heard of and I'm not that pathetic, not yet. All in all I'm incredibly angry right now and I have to go to work later this morning and the anger will only increase, not a good way to start the morning. Pray for me. I'll see you guys later. Until then, refrain from reading any of my old posts until I get everything cleaned but. Catch you guys later!
