Five friends receive a mystery puzzle box from their mutual billionaire friend. It was an invite for a pretend murder mystery holiday at the Glass Onion! Interestingly enough, even Detective Benoit Blanc received an invite too….
Miles Bron, the billionaire, invited his friends to play a game of murder investigation, of his own murder, for fun! However, with the Detective among their midsts, what could possibly be go wrong?
At the beginning, I was already perplexed at everyone’s hostile reaction to the arrival of one particular friend. The more I watched, the more intrigued I became…. There were many twists and turns with each of the characters’ back stories.
Ani spent most of her adult life building the ideal life. She had the perfect wealthy and handsome fiancé, working as a journalist in New York. Having the perfect facade to hide her insecurities and frustrations became very difficult when she was invited to be in a true crime documentary about her high school life. This was about a school shooting and bomb incident that was connected to her….
Will this documentary destroy her or release her?
This story was a common story that women hear often about victim-blaming. Women were told to be quiet to avoid attention, to dress conservatively to avoid attention and to not get drunk….
This movie was a reminder that it was important to follow your heart and be brave.

This story by Steven King started out as a heart warming story of a young boy growing up and befriending an old gentleman. When the gentleman passed away, it became a huge blow to this young man. I also became saddened to hear of Mr. Harrigan’s death. I enjoyed this story of revenge and friendship that was great for the Halloween season without being overly gruesome.
Bud was working hard to support his family. His wife and daughter didn’t get to see him very much and this was ruining his relationship. But it wasn’t his pool cleaning job that was paying the bills. In reality, he was a vampire-hunter. Yes, vampires lived among the living by applying illegal sunscreen to protect from the sun!
Killing and handing in their fangs to the bureau, Bud would get paid in cash. However, the bureau didn’t like his way of hunting, so they sent the union head to monitor Bud’s ways. All was well till things got out of hand….
There was a ton of action. The fight scenes were well choreographed and smooth. The storyline was very typical. This was a fun movie with lots of heavy machinery and bloodshed.
Teddy was fired from his marketing position at a fitness centre. He decided not to let his wife know about another failure in his career. Instead, he booked a cabin for her birthday. However, due to a low toner situation, he couldn’t see the address clear enough on the booking sheet. So, he dropped her off at a spa and went to search for the cabin.
Unfortunately, this cabin was meant for a meeting between assassins! He became entangled in an international situation with an assassin named The Man From Toronto.
Now, what about his marriage?!
I was laughing at the humorous antics and enjoying the explosions! I liked the friendship and marriage storyline.

She was a head cheerleader and fell into a coma after a cheerleading accident. When she woke up, she assumed life was the same as before…. Most of life was different, but her high school rival was still determined to destroy her even after all these years. Her rival married her high school boyfriend, who became infatuated with her again when he saw her!
What will happen when she forces herself to blend in and excel in the high school social zoo?
I actually enjoyed this movie. All the school bullies didn’t disappear even though the principal worked to become inclusive of everyone. I feel very much like her at times as I enjoy many of the past times of younger generations. Past times like social media, really help me to stay current. However, some people of my generation or older, don’t understand and even make fun of my involvement with younger generations.
A couple of Grim Reapers were assigned to monitor the leaps of the living beings’ negative energy. As the numbers rise, it was a sign that could lead to suicidal thoughts. One day, a young man was walking along the bridge and saw a man wanting to jump off. As he was trying to save this man, the Grim Reapers appeared as humans and tried to tell the young man to leave. The young man refused to leave because he believed that he could save that older man. Then, they both slipped and fell over…..
The young man sat up and discovered that he was in a coma! Temporarily, his soul was separated from his body, so he was assigned a new body, identity and even a new job! He was a Grim Reaper! What?!
I got extremely emotional on so many occasions. There were many triggers related to suicide, sexual harassment, slavery, war and much more. This was definitely not for sensitive viewers.
This series featured excerpts from the Andy Warhol Diaries book. The private life of Andy Warhol was displayed uncensored. That included his love life, his daily life and the gun shot incident. The intimate details into his thoughts during the rise of the AIDS epidemic among his friends really showed how anxious he was living each day.
The relationships that he developed in the art and entertainment industry helped to shape a lot of what we knew now as pop culture.
There was a bit of nudity that did catch me by surprise. However, I really learned a lot about how he was so forward in thinking and comfortable about being himself.
I have always been inspired by his art and really appreciate this series.
