Master of Horrors: Stuart Gordon: The Black Cat

This movie is about Edgar Allan Poe who is suffering from a severe case of writers block. He has an ill wife and an evil black cat named Pluto. 

It's a short show only 58 minutes. It looks like Master of Horrors was a Showtime series and this was one of the stories. I don't know. I never heard of Master of Horrors, will have to check that out.

The Stand - The Movie

I love Stephen King, but I just couldn't get into this movie after two hours. I certainly wasn't going to sit through it for four more hours.

The movie is about a lethal virus that gets into the general population, leaving only a few survivors. My kind of flick, but this just wasn't doing it for me.

Some good actors. Rob Lowe, Molly Ringwald, Jamie Sheridan and Gary Sinise.

This one got a two star.

James Patterson's Suzanne's Diary For Nicholas - The Movie

A made for television movie, about a book editor played by Kathleen Rose Perkins who falls in love with one of her writers. The writer played by Johnathon Schaech gives her his late wife's journal. The late wife is played by Christina Applegate.

Very touching love story. I managed to watch it without crying, but I did find myself getting goosebumps on a couple of occasions.

Russian King Crab Stolen - Deadliest Catch

This really doesn't have to do with Deadliest Catch, but it is about Russian King Crab and I found it interesting. So I thought I would share.

I just read an article about that a trucker who went to Los Angeles and picked up 25,000 pounds of Russian King Crab worth $400,000 for delivery in Seattle on Monday. Then he just disappeared.

Jeff Conaway Has Died - So Sad

Well I waited to post anything until I heard from Dr. Drew, since people have been posting Jeff Conaway died for the last two weeks. I didn't want it to be true, but Dr. Drew says it is, so I guess I'll have to believe it.

It looks like from the report's Jeff was taken off of the ventilator Thursday and succumbed to his illness on Friday. I don't know how reliable that information is, except that it does appear he died Friday.

Is Jeff Conaway Dead or Alive?

Who knows? It's hard to say, who do you believe? There have been so many stories out there I'm not sure what to believe.

On May 18th, reports started emerging that Jeff Conaway was in the hospital in a coma from an apparent drug over dose.

May 20th, Dr. Drew tweeted that Jeff Conaway did not have a drug overdose he had pneumonia and sepsis and was expected to recover. He also said he was in a medically induced coma.

All this I shared with you when I found out.

On Thursday May 26th, I guess it is Friday now, so yesterday. TV Guide reported that Radar Online had reported that Jeff Conaway may be taken off of life support later in the day, that the feeding tube had been removed and that he had been brain dead since he was brought into the hospital.

Deadliest Catch and NASCAR Collide

Captain Andy will be at the NASCAR Charlotte Coca-Cola 600 this weekend.

So for all you Nascar fans that also love Deadliest Catch, stop by and visit Captain Andy. He will be hanging with the Jim Beam guys.

The last time I spoke with Captain Andy about this he was unsure if Captain Johnathan would attend or not. I'm still waiting to hear from Johnathan.

The Young and The Restless Was So Good Today

OMG What a show today! and it isn't even Friday.

Someone please smack Phyllis Newman she is making me crazy with all this. Taking Lucy from Billy Abbott and Victoria Newman Abbott won't make up for what you did to Daniel Romalotti. Whatever that was I didn't watch when Phyllis had Daniel.

If they could get Daisy to sign her rights away, that would solve a lot of problems for Daniel, Victoria and Billy. But it's so risky, because Daisy is psycho.

Deadliest Catch Season 7 Episode 7 Recap Thick As Thieves

"Thick As Thieves"

Well this week was a very interesting and frustrating episode.  I am a person that tries to look at both sides of a situation, and this episode had my head going like a ping pong ball.

We start off with a clip of Freddie Maughtai saying this boat will never be the same, and the policeman is approaching the Cornelia Marie.

The Cornelia Marie is headed back into town. Captain Derrick Ray says he tried to bring a different culture to the boat, but they don't want things to change, they want things the way they were. Well yeah, I don't think they asked you to change the boat, they asked you to Captain the boat. Derrick says he knows there is dope on this boat, he just can't prove it. No there's not they smoked it all. Derrick says its zero tolerance with drugs, the coast guard could take the boat and keep it; they don't even have to give it back with a fine if they don't want too. He says he could lose his license he could go to jail over this. I don't believe that is an entirely true statement. I'll elaborate more after the episode.

Cane's Evil Twin - The Young And The Restless

I'm really having mixed emotions about Cane Ashby having an evil twin. On one hand it's great because that means Daniel Goddard still has a job. On the other hand the evil twins usually get killed off. I sure hope they find some way to rehabilitate this evil twin into a good guy once this storyline is over so Daniel Goddard can stay.

The Nurse - The Movie

The Nurse played by Lisa Zane is a psychological thriller.

Her father is caught embezzling and his solution is to kill his wife, son and then himself.  But the nurse blames the informant, who guess what now needs a nurse. It's the perfect opportunity for revenge.

Not a real original storyline, but somewhat entertaining none the less.

I'll give this one three stars.

Blood Work - The Movie

In this movie titled "Blood Work" Clint Eastwood plays a retired FBI agent - Terry McCaleb who is recovering from a heart transplant. The heart donor who was murdered has a sister who figures out that Terry received her sisters heart and contacts him to find out who murdered her.

Terry agrees, and the quest begins. Its a pretty interesting story line. I gave this one a three star also.

The Associate - The Movie

This comedy stars Whoopi Goldberg, Diane Wiest and Tim Daly.  It's about a women trying to make it on Wall Street amongst all the men. This was a very entertaining movie, but of course with a cast like this its hard to go wrong. Gotta love Whoopi!

I give this one three and a half stars.

The New Daughter - The Movie

The New Daughter is a supernatural thriller. It's about a man whose wife runs off with another man and leaves him with the two kids. Kevin Costner plays the dad in this movie.

The movie stars: Kevin Costner, Samantha Mathis, Ivana Baquero and Gattlin Griffith

Kevin Costner is a writer so he works from home. He moves the kids to a new house in South Carolina and guess what? It has a haunted mound in the back yard. The daughter becomes possessed and the father is on a mission to save her.

I didn't like way the movie ended.

I give this one a three star.

The Core - The Movie

The end of the world is near. This flick seemed appropriate to watch with the rapture and all yesterday that never happened. Or maybe it did happen and I got left behind. In either case I've decided to have a movie-thon today and see if I can clean out some of my Netflix queue.

The Core is an end of the world disaster type of movie. Usually my kind of movie. I like Deadly Disaster movies.

This one stars Hilary Swank, Aaron Eckhart, Stanley Tucci, Bruce Greenwood, Delroy Lindo, DJ Qualls, Richard Jenkins, Alfre Woodard, and Tcheky Karyo.
