GRIMM – My rating: 8.5/10

GrimmEvery week the Grimm (Nick Burkhardt), played by David Giuntoli  and his partner (Hank Griffin) played by Russell Hornsby,  go out on police cases involving Wesen and other strange looking demon like creatures.  Because these perfectly normal looking people can change back and forth from human to creature, no one knows that they are not completely human.  They can be seen in their unhuman form if they choose to be seen that way.  If they don’t, only the Grimm can see what they really look like.  The Grimm is not one of the creatures.  Legend says the Grimm only hunts and kills these creatures.  This series is quite complicated as the Grimm has many of these creatures as friends, including a very close Wieder Blutbad named Monroe, played by Silas Weir Mitchell and his fiance, a  Fachsbau named Rosalee Calvert, played by Bree Turner and his boss,  a Fluent Francophone named police captain Sean Renard, played by Sasha Roiz.  There are many twist and turns in this series.  These creatures are not all bad.  Some are quite good.  The stories are interesting, the acting is great and the concepts will keep you tuning in week after week.  As it turns out, this Grimm does not follow legend, he does not hunt and kill unless a gruesome crime has been committed by one of them and causes him to hunt and/or the reaction to a violent act causes him to kill.  No one knows about these creatures or the Grimm except a few choice folks.  This series is well written and keeps the production light hearted enough that no one is completely grossed out by these demonic looking creatures.  It’s a very good show.  Check it out.  The Grimm currently airs on NBC and is not suited for children under 15.

MACHETE KILLS (2013) – My rating: 8.5/10

MacheteKillsMachete Kills is getting a lot of buzz.  This is a movie you have to go in knowing it’s just for entertainment.  It’s extremely violent and full of sexy innuendos.  This movie has so much blood shed that it’s hard to keep up with the countless bodies left all over the place.  Imagine Charlie Sheen as president of the US and Cuba Gooding, Jr. as a sort of Change Shifter to the likes of Walton Goggins, Lady Gaga and Antonio Banderas.  I couldn’t believe the amount of stars that graced this dark, comical, crazy, twisted kill ride.  Danny Trejo plays a legendary killer who seems invincible.  Michelle Rodriguez plays Machete’s  sort of side kick.  Jessica Alba opens up this movie along side Machete doing what they do best, killing people.  Sofía Vergara plays the host of a house of ill repute.  You will see everything from gun shooting boobs to gun shooting vaginas.  Amber Heard plays Miss San Antonio among other things.  Finally, Mel Gibson plays the ultimate villain in this very funny, violent, crazy movie.  I loved it.  I was thoroughly entertained.  Just imagine what you know of these stars and the roles they played.  That’s funny in itself.   There are many more stars and many more to come as the sequel is in the works.  We get a little sneak preview into “Machete  in Space” which is the next in line to dazzle us into laughter and stupidness.  Enjoy!
