The Curse of La Llorona

She’s coming to take your children.

She should have taken the audience too, they were giggling throughout the movie.

The Curse of La Llorona is a Mexican folklore. The story is a beautiful maiden woman by the name of Maria. She married a nobleman, and they had two boys. Her husband was a traveler and a business person. Someone had to make money and provide for the family. But when he comes home, he would give his attention to the boys and denied Maria. She did not know why he would do this to her. Eventually, it drove her crazy.

So she spied on her husband when he was in town and found out that he was going out with a younger woman. It was not his sister or cousin, but with another woman.

Maria takes her two sons to the Santa Fe River and drowns them. And then later she immerses herself too.

In heaven, she is denied entry, until she finds the soul of her two sons. And she is cursed to wander the earth looking to reclaim their souls.

Dressed in a white gown and wailing for her children. She takes lost and abandoned children as her own and drowns them in hopes of recovering their souls that will permit her entry into the afterlife.

In other words, she wanted to join her sons, that she killed.  

This story used to scare kids not to go at night or disregard their parents if they do. They will not come back.

La Llorona has infiltrated nightmares from Mexico to the Southwest region of the United States.

The Curse of La Llorona takes place in the year of 1970s in Los Angeles where Linda Cardellini is a single mother with two children and social worker. Who finds herself in a supernatural phenomenon presence of La Llorona, an evil presence who wants her children.  Their only hope to survive La Llorona deadly wrath is a priest and the mysticism he practices to keep at bay.

Linda Cardellini – Scooby Doo Movie (2002), Freaks and Geeks (1991 – 2002)
Roman Christou – His first major movie
Jaynee-Lynne Kinchen – Her first major movie
Tony Amendola – Father Perez Annabelle (2014)

He’s the only character in the movie that is Conjuring Universe Series including in this movie.

This movie was actually good and scary. The quietness and tension will make anyone be scared of the dark when it is quite. The only part was the audience laughing and giggling in the movie, it makes no sense. It’s supernatural horror. The audience should have nightmares.

The movie was creepy and frightening, great jump scares, it made me threw my popcorn and my drink on my date, that scared her the most. Plus she got wet. Then she dumped her soda drink on me. At least we were hydrated and did not faint. Stay hydrated!

Michael Chaves is a fantastic director; his direction of jump scares was different than other movies. It’s a great horror movie for date night or going by yourself, that’s what happened to me on occasion I would ask a girl if she would like to see a horror movie. She would say yes. Then when the climax of the film comes along. She would spoil the movie and walk away to the lobby, while she waits for me to come out. Never use tinder to find a date and if they have seen it the night before.

The acting in the movie was fantastic. Overall it was a great movie. I gave it three out of four stars.

Go see it this weekend, especially on Easter.  

My date zero.  

American Idol 2019: Top 10

Riley Thompson

If you have been watching or a fan of the show, American Idol just announced their top 10 out of 14 that the judges on American Idol selected them.

The judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry, and Lionel  Richie selected the contestants themselves for the past months, and they were satisfied by their choice. Ryan Seacrest did not choose; this is not America’s Got Talent.

Now it came down to the American Idol fans to choose who will be the top 10. Some of them were right, and some of them were wrong, but it was America choice. You have to pick.

As you may know, these judges are well respected in the music industry, and they know how to pick, but since it was America choice they have to choose who will likely to win American Idol 2019.   

All of the contestants were fantastic the night before especially there performance. Some of them connected with the audience and some did not. The music industry is a tough crowd to join, you may have a fantastic voice, but will the radio audience will like it? It’s all ways the voice of the singer that will move the audience to buy your CD or other formats.  

The top ten were:

Madison Van Denburg

Jeremiah Lloyd  Harman

Laci Kaye Booth

Alejandro Aranda

Lionel Hardy

Wade Cota

Walker Buroughs

Uche

Alyssa Ragu

Dimitrius Grahman

When Uche didn’t make it in the top ten, I don’t know what America was thinking. Lionel Richie picked him as one of his save this week, Uche is an entertainer, he entertains and performs his song. He knows how to attract the crowd. He connected with his audience and they dance to the song.  If you want him to perform at your wedding, he used to be a wedding singer and now he is on American Idol. Please vote him through. Don’t go by his looks, go by his performance and he is an entertainer. He can move a crowd.

Luke Bryan saved Dimitrius Graham, and this guy can harmonize and sing with other top celebrities. His voice is incredible. I am glad Luke saved him; he needs to be in the competition. His voice and his performance are fantastic.  I don’t care what people say about him. He can sing and perform. Go by his performance and vote for him next week. He should not go home. Forget about the Games of Thrones on HBO. He can control dragons with his voice.

Katy Perry save Alyssa Ragu she has a fantastic voice, and she sang a Katy Perry song “The One that Got Away.” It was better than Katy Perry. If people don’t vote for her, she will go home next week. So please vote Alyssa Ragu to be your American Idol. And don’t even think about Ragu Spaghetti sauce.  I bet the sauce wanted to vote for her too.

All the rest of the singers are great performers and entertainers they sang fantastic. Don’t let them go home. We have to vote for them. Get the app on the Apple Store app and Google Play store app. Remember you have to vote, if you don’t vote, you assume that they will be saved apparently, this is not a presidential race. This is American Idol. Save the contestant that you like the best.  

The contestants that went home are

Riley Thompson

Evelyn Cormier

Eddie Island

Ashley Hess

They did their best, and not everyone voted who they like. It’s a popularity contest, but they are fantastic performers and entertainers.

Vote for them, don’t assume they will be saved.

Jay Leno’s Cholesterol 911

Who stays up late and watch the late night shows like Johnny Carson, David Letterman, and Jay Leno. Oops wrong people, these are the originals king of late night on NBC, these comedians know how to make us laugh at night and wake us up in the morning, and we feel happy.  

Jay Leno and Jimmy Fallon
Watch Jay Leno on CNBC

Jay Leno still makes an appearance on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, whenever he promotes a cause, book or his new show Jay Leno’s Garage on the CNBC. Whenever he interviews celebrities or car owners, Jay Leno loves cars he even fixes old antique car and today’s cars too, he still makes me laugh, and I learn a thing about cars.   

Jay Leno said in an interview that he isn’t laughing at late night television anymore, they need better writers and Jay Leno sleeps early.

The late-night shows have become ‘too political,’ and comics are having a tough time writing topical jokes and poke fun at people in a good way. We get tired hearing Trump Jokes all the time.

Can we please stop telling Trump jokes and poke fun at other stuff. Or something else.  Why not Nancy Pelosi, she looks funny even babies are crying at her just because she seems weird.  We want good entertaining comedians, and they are some out there when the host invites them to tell jokes, and they are quite funny, better than the host.

Jay Leno said it best “Clinton was horny, and Bush was dumb, and it was just a little easier.”

Nowadays, the late-night host are struggling to keep an audience especially the viewers at home watching late night shows to keep up with the news.

I still watch Jay Leno’s Garage on CNBC, his show worth watching.

Luke Perry

Another thing if you have high cholesterol, and perhaps we don’t know if we have it, having high blood pressure could cause having a stroke or even death. Remember a few weeks ago when Luke Perry, died he was 52. Fame actor from Beverly Hills 90210 and Riverdale on the CW. He had a stroke a week ago, and a few days later, he had a heart attack and died.

Lotte van der Zoe, former 2017 Miss Teen Universe died two weeks after suffering a heart attack while on vacation in Austria with her parents. She was 20.

Too young to die. Even teens can suffer from heart attacks if we monitor our eating habits and blood pressure, they could live longer. Teens don’t care and nor read the labels on food products; they eat anything they want and suffer consequences of their health the hard way.  

Having high blood pressure is no joke. What we eat every day can kill us. If your doctor prescribes you with medicine to control your blood pressure, it’s good. However, it’s our diet. You have to control what you eat. Cut the salt and sugar away from your diet. If you can minimize your salt (other names for salt here) and sugar (Carbohydrates, other sugar names here) if we eliminate both of these, we could live longer.

Jay Leno suffers from high blood pressure, and he didn’t die, I hope he is watching his diet. Check out Cholesterol 911. Jay Leno wants us to know the signs of heart attack and stroke, and the resources to get help and change your diet. It can be preventable. Being a vegan can help your diet and make you live longer. Change your diet, if not you won’t be able to see your grandchildren.

60 ways Lower Cholesterol: What you really need to know to save your life

Movie of the Week: Varsity Blue

Here’s the pitch for the movie of the week

Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin will be starring in their own Hallmark movie called Varsity Blues. The story is about two parents who planned their child life’s to go to their perfect school, but the parents never graduate from College (at least one of them), they orchestrated a plan how to pass the SAT or ACT to get perfect score, and pretend that they never participate in a sport or activities, by photoshopping their image on a picture. And their child will go to the school of their choice and get the experience of a lifetime and excellent education and a better career than their parents.  

Will this be a great movie of the week?

Eventually, it is based on a true story that came in the news lately. If Hollywood makes a movie about this, it will be interesting to watch.

Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin were caught in a cheating scam of helping their child to get into an Ivy school. By bribing the proctors, college coaches, and executives, there’s a whole list of names who participated. By helping to give them the right answers for their son or daughter can be happy.

Sounds like good parents, do you think? It’s nice to see parents getting involved in their child’s education.  

Which is the same as the FBI operation mission – Varsity Blue. While the actors will be in the new season of Orange is the new Black.

This is a crazy story.

Parent’s can still help their children out. They can hire a coach or tutors who don’t give out the answer, but help the student out and guide them what to expect in an exam, and how to overcome trick questions that will appear on exams. They have to take the exams multiple times to get a good score if not, it’s not the end of the world.

They don’t have to go to an Ivy school a community-university is so much better, they can learn from professors who went to Ivy school themselves. They will tell you one thing:  Work hard and be smart. That’s the key to be successful in life.

Talk to your children, find out what they would like to do. Teach them how to be financially independent.  Sometimes high schools don’t teach the students how to be successful out of school. Practice your handwriting. Try to get a scholarship and try to get a job. Take a business course. If they take a business course as a major, that means whatever they choose they will know the business.

Acting and Singing is a business look at how actors get roles in movies. It’s a business. They study their craft, and they take classes and workshop.

Find something that your child likes to do take classes and workshop, and they will get a certificate of appreciation, and their hard work will improve and be recognized for their skills and talent. Learn from the best.

Captain Marvel

As you may know, Captain Marvel is out, and it grosses over its budget, which it makes more profitable and more successful than other movies in the previous years.  It looks like there’s a new trend in movies nowadays. Make superhero movies that can be relatable to males and females. As long they have superheroes ability or not. Anyone can be a superhero, as long they have a curfew.

Captain Marvel is the new superhero movie in the of 2019, and there’s more to come this year. Is Hollywood telling us something we could be superheroes too? I am not bulletproof, fast enough, or strong enough, but I am working out. So far my little muscles are slowly pumping up. Oh my god, I look the like Hulk. I was upset early ago. Everything is good. Remember don’t get mad, you might look like the Hulk yourself.

You could beat the odds, don’t let your weakness come to you. Take your weakness and improve on it.

Brie Larson

Brie Larson plays Captain Marvel, and her character is a test pilot who works under Dr. Wendy Lawson testing an experimental vehicle that can fly through space and time (time travel more likely).

If you are confused about the movie plot and story, I was too. I started to do research about the Kree and Skrulls, and they are two alien races in the Marvel Universe it was created by the late Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. A tribute of Stan Lee was in the opening credits in the movie logo and the train scene reading Mallrats (Kevin Smith directed the film, and the movie came out in 1995).

The Kree killed Mar-Vell, and the Skrulls wanted the power, so Carol Danvers blew up the engine and caused a massive explosion, and it infused her body to become a superhero with all the abilities to become a superhero.  Remember don’t let your child play with live power lines, it could be danger.

The Skrulls wanted her to extract the power from her, but she felt good and the ability she had made her invincible.

You have to see the movie. The visuals are spectacular and amazing.

What we can do is to inspire our children to become a great scientist, they need Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) to succeed. It would not be easy for them, but they do need help from parents and their mentors. Just help your children to become successful.

By the way, the movie is Marvel-ous.
