Welcome to my Saturday Screams.

Normally, I share horror book reviews on this meme.

This week I’m going to share some movies I’ve watched recently.

I’d love to hear your thoughts if you’ve watched any of these.

The Hateful Eight

The Hateful Eight [Blu-ray]

With a cast of beloved actors, I knew this was gonna be good. Holy shit! That’s all I can say. LOL

I’ve loved westerns ever since I was young and would stay up late watching them with my dad. Such actors as Charles Bronson, Bruce Dern, Clint Eastwood, and my all time favorite, John Wayne, filled my television screen well into the wee hours.

Many more actors have joined my list over 40 years of watching cowboys shoot from the hip. Some epic movies are watched over and over again.

But, The Hateful Eight shocked the shit out of me. Excuse the grammar. No better way I can describe it. They aren’t called The Hateful Eight for nothing!

I loved every ugly, nasty, bloody bit of it. From one to ten, I give it a ten!



Black Mass

Black Mass (Blu-ray+ DVD + UV)

I love Johnny Depp. Such a sexy bad boy. I couldn’t wait to see him as Whitey Bulger. I can only think of two other movies where Johnny was a true bad guy. There was Sweeney Todd and Secret Window. Both favorites of mine.

Black Mass is in your face gritty. Murder is committed like it’s just business. How could the FBI ever think an alliance with Whitey would be anything but a bad idea. In all the years they protected him from prosecution, he used them to become a major crime lord, only giving them one thing that was of any real value.

Casting Johnny as Whitey was brilliant. He gave me the shivers with his dull, clouded stare and callous disregard for human life. He was a criminal through and through.

From one to ten, I give it an eight.



John Wick

John Wick [Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD]

I didn’t have much of an idea who John Wick was before I stared the movie. My son filled me in on that.

Keanu Reeves has grown on me over the years, and he nailed his part in this one. To think it all started because some entitled, punk wants his car. Hell came down in all ways bloody when they messed with John.

Surprisingly, there was one scene that made me cry. From then on, I was with John every step of the way. Give em what they deserve, and clean house!

From one to ten, I give it a nine.
