Plot: Unhappy being ruler of the Underworld, Rumpelstiltskin frees himself and goes into hiding, making plans to take over Earth once and for all. As the Avengers Grimm fight to stop him, they quickly discover it’s not where Rumpelstiltskin is hiding, but when, forcing our heroes to fight through the ages.
Review: Every writer knows that the first rule of being a writer is read over your own work, then edit and change as necessary. However, in the case of this film, I do think that the writer and director missed a lot.
I wonder if the writer and the director got together for a basic script read and wondered to themselves, “Do we or don’t we?”
This is one of those scenarios where they should have reviewed the script and diced it completely.
Where can I begin? The acting was lame, the Director was obviously asleep at the wheel, and I cannot image how in hell this POC got funded. Then again, this “Masterpiece of crap” does come from the gang at The Asylum, so what else can we expect….
I know that this was released to “try” and capitalize on Avengers: Infinity War, but .. Well, what can I say here? Maybe they should have stopped with the first installment, rather than carry on the charade of bad acting and bad directing.
Verdict: No. Not just no, but, Hell No!

My love for singing traces back to my childhood, when I was approximately 7 years old..
I used to listen to my dad playing the violin, and somehow what I didn’t know then as a child, I know now….
“That I always wanted to SING… always wanted to write and compose lyrics…”
I began to take classical singing lessons as a child and continued till circumstances tore me apart to simply log on to a real life for survival.
My music career went into a recessive hibernation and the economical struggles made me put my “SINGING” on the shelf of my mind’s library…
And almost after 30 long years, I felt I wanted to open the closed pages of my book… to the chapter of SINGING and MUSIC..
I needed to do something different other than follow the routine work life… I first began with lessons on piano and then the sound of music did the rest for me… It took me to the platform of my dreams … to sing, to entertain and to create music..
I couldn’t have done it without my son, who encouraged me at every step, not just as a mentor, but as a guide and my best friend … with very special thanks to Jean Pritchard for making my dream a reality …. And very humble oath of honour to D/A music/ Regent Street Artists for giving me a recognition ….
My debut single as a lyricist and singer has released on the following platforms…

Plot: A military squad is sent to a deserted island in the Pacific Ocean in order to secure top secret records involving a zombie epidemic that wiped out the large scientific team experimenting with various test chemicals and toxins which leads to the team battling not only zombies, but the lone surviving scientist who has plans for the future of the human race.
Tagline: They’re more than dead!
My Tagline: Hmmmm…
Review: I love a good zombie flick as much as the next person. With some actors like Joey Lawrence (Blossom), (Brotherly Love), one would expect the acting performance to be a lot better. although there are some scenes in here which bend the norm of all zombie flicks (such as the Z Vs Z Fight Scene), this film did not reach the expectations that it could have done.
To be frank, the film reminded me of much of the game play on Dead Island series.
Make Up effects were good, which is saying something. The acting could have been a lot better. But overall, a film I may watch again.
IMDB Rating: 5.3

5th Passenger (2018)
Director: Scotty Baker
Writers: Scotty Baker, Morgan Lariah | 1 more credit »
Stars: Doug Jones, Marina Sirtis, Mindy Robinson, Tim Russ, Armin Shimerman, Doug Jones, Hana Hatae, Morgan Lariah
Storyline: The year: 2151. In the aftermath of an oppressive class war, Miller, a pregnant officer aboard an escape pod must struggle to survive with her remaining crew when a mysterious and vicious life form attacks, determined to become the dominant species.
Review: For anyone familiar with the Star Trek Universe, you will notice a lot of names in this film, like Marina Sirtis (Star Trek TNG), Tim Russ (Star Trek Voyager), Armin Shimerma (DS9).
While it does seem that half of the Star Trek Alumni banded together in yet another sci-fi film not related to Star Trek, the idea behind this film was simple enough to band together some great talent in a movie that was below grade.
The storyline is simple and has been done a few times before. A pregnant crew member is found on an escape pod and through VR Memory Clips, we see what happened to the rest of her crew, or at least, what you think happened to the crew. In the recount of her mind, each member of the crew is systematically killed off one by one by a bad version of a CGI spider.
But, was the crew really killed off by an alien spider, or is the mind of Eve Miller more diabolical than one can expect?
That, folks, is something you got to find out for yourself.
This film was obviously a low budget, but despite that, there were some good performances from the former Star Trek gang.
IMDB Rating: 3.4
