BAD MOVIE REVIEW: THE SHRINE

While stuck at home today because of the rain I watched a very bad movie on Netflix: The Shrine (2010).

It supposedly takes place in Poland so I thought it was a foreign film but it’s American. Three Americans, a journalist, her boyfriend, and a female intern go to Poland to investigate the disappearance of a college student/backpacker. The two women gaze upon this evil statue that is eternally shrouded in fog. The locals capture them, and kill the intern in a strange ritual. They are about to kill the journalist but her boyfriend rescues her. As they try to escape she turns into a demon because anyone who gazes upon the statue turns into a demon thing. Makeup was similar to the Exorcist but without the pea soup. So the locals, and with the help of the boyfriend, kill her. Then the next day when he is about to leave the town he asked a local, what is that statue? And the local says, it’s a curse from long ago that can’t be lifted. THAT’S IT?? That’s all the explanation I get? I sat through 84 minutes of bad props and makeup and dialog and Polish accents and acting and that’s it? Damnit!

BIRD ON A WIRE

Hubby and I were in the Palm Springs area over the weekend and found a local place to go hiking, the Cove Oasis. I saw a bird on a telephone wire and thought it looked kind of interesting. Then it moved to the pole and I got a zoom of it and it turned out to be a Kestrel. Here are the photos.

Yes, there really is a bird sitting on a phone wire in the middle of this photo.

 

You can actually tell there's something in the middle of this photo.

JOHNNY DEPP IS ALWAYS HOT!!

I love Johnny Depp. I am very excited that he is going to be Tonto in the new Lone Ranger movie. Here he is in his Tonto costume. I am very curious to know how much of it is his own creation, where he drew his inspiration, and how authentic it is. He is so hot! Even with a bird on his head!

THIS ROBOT IS COOLER THAN YOU

This robot can solve a Rubik’s cube. I can’t. I like how it’s showing off its accomplishment proudly at the end.
