Cobra Kai is a pretty great show, now Can’t wait for season 4!

So I got around to finishing “Cobra Kai – Season 3” this week. It’s a pretty great show surprisingly. I’m loving all of it so far. While this is a sequel to the Karate Kid series, it’s also a prequel at the same time. I know it’s weird but in a lot of that show it shows how some characters were in the past. I loved how it shows more about Johnny Lawrence’s childhood and teenage years.

While it’s an awesome show, “Season 3” was the best season. I was impressed that Daniel Laruso went back to Okinawa in that season to reminisce the past and revisit the good old days. I just loved how Daniel reunites with Kumiko and the villain Chozen from Karate II, that was awesome and I was also more interested in how the season showed more of John Kreese’s past. It was interesting that they showed us what Kreese’s U.S. Army days were like.

While this show is a reunion of some sorts, all the characters coming back from the original films played by the same actors, will the cast from Karate Kid III and “The Next Karate Kid” return?

There’s a huge debate online on whether or not Thomas Ian Griffith will return as Terry Silver and Sean Kanan will return as Mike Barnes, the villains from “Karate Kid III”. Also Robyn Lively who played Daniel’s love interest, Jessica should return in the future too. Also will Hillary Swank who played the girl in “The Next Karate Kid” make an appearance in “Cobra Kai”??? We’ll have to wait I guess.

While most of the original Cobra Kai reunited, there’s one guy who didn’t appear yet… Chad McQueen who played Dutch in the first “Karate Kid” film. Ya know that one Cobra Kai guy with the white curly hair, yeah, that guy. Instead, they put Dutch in prison for the show. I read somewhere that they tried to ask Chad McQueen to reprise his role as Dutch but he turned it down ’cause he hasn’t been acting for over 30 years? Who knows, maybe they’ll still put him on one day. We’ll have to see but it would be cool. I’m glad Rob Garrison made appearance on the show before he passed, that was awesome.

The show is getting real good and I think Ralph Macchio has gotten way better with his acting too. William Zabka is great too, though… they’re all great but I wanna say something about Martin Kove, though, he’s still killing it as John Kreese after all these years. Kreese has always been my favorite character.

Great show so far and looking forward to more in Season 4!

Cobra Kai: How is that Ralph Macchio Never Ages???

I’ve finally started getting around to watching “Cobra Kai”, now that it’s on Netflix. I’ve watched Seasons 1 & 2…. gonna catch up with Season 3 later this week.

I must say it’s a very good show. I’m very surprised with it. Really good writing, acting and directing too. Not bad for a show that’s only a half hour long for each episodes which is only 10 episodes for each season. This show is extremely popular and it’s creating a buzz for sure. Ya know, I’ve been wanting to watch it though since it was announced but I wasn’t gonna subscribe to Youtube Red just to watch it… now it’s on Netflix, I thought I would finally start.

One thing I’ve noticed though is that while this is a continuation of the Karate Kid trilogy, I’m blown away about how all the characters are being played by the same people… but most of the cast has aged pretty badly. They all look way different now. Well, William Zabka who plays Johnny kind of looks the same a little bit but he looks way older now. The rest of the cast looks way different except for Ralph Macchio.

Ralph still looks like he’s 20 years old and his speaking voice is still the same too. Some may say plastic surgery, hair dye and bad genes but I don’t think so. Ralph just aged really well… he just knew how to take care of himself over the years. If you take care of yourself, you’ll look great when you get older. Ralph is 59 but he doesn’t look it at all. He still looks and sounds young which is great.

Ralph Macchio is still a great actor, though. He can still play Daniel Laruso really well even after all these years.

Some of you may ask where has Ralph been? Well, he quit acting in major leading roles and just been doing small cameos in films and doing other projects. He stopped doing leading roles in films to start a family and things like that. Now he’s out of acting retirement. I remember he had other great roles than “The Karate Kid”… he was great in “The Outsiders” and “My Cousin Vinny”. Also the movie “Crossroads” in which guitarist Steve Vai had a role in. You didn’t hear much from Ralph after those films.

Well in this new “Cobra Kai” series this is Ralph telling you all that he hasn’t really gone away.

I’m hoping that when this show is all done that Ralph will go back to leading roles in movies again. Maybe he will never say never.

“Cobra Kai” is an amazing show, though and it’s definitely the best show on television right now. The show is addicting and entertaining as hell. Makes me want re-watch the Karate Kid trilogy again.

New “Unsolved Mysteries” on Netflix… thoughts and opinions on all 6 cases shown on new season…

I’ve always had an interest and always been a huge fan of real true crime stories. I’ve always had an interest of it all… ya know… murders, missing persons cases, serial killers, mobster stories… I love it all… and I’m also a huge fan of the supernatural and UFO’s.

When I was young, I used to obsessively watch Unsolved Mysteries with Robert Stack as host all the time. It used to be my favorite show and now the show is back but exclusively for Netflix only with a new 15th season. I loved the old show with Robert Stack ’cause it was so scary and I love scary stuff. The dark music, Robert’s scary voice over and all that stuff.

I watched the new “Unsolved Mysteries” over the weekend, watched the first season with the first 6 episodes. I loved them all. The new season and revival of the show was surprisingly impressive and very well done show. It’s the similar format of the original show, people interview and talking about unsolved cases, scary and dark music and actors playing during scenes… except the new show didn’t have a host and no scary voice over. I kind of like that, though ’cause if they got a host and a voiceover, it would have been like Robert Stack and they probably didn’t want that. Something new and different…

Anyhow… here are my thoughts on the 6 episodes and the 6 cases so far… these are just my theories and opinions of what I think may have happened for each one so here we go:

Mystery on the Rooftop:  Was Rey Rivera fall from that historic building a suicide, accidental or a murder? Like most, I’m looking more toward a murder and the murderer is easy to figure out. I’m pointing my fingers at Rey’s so-called best friend, Porter Stansberry. No doubt Porter did it. I think there was a point where Rey and Porter didn’t get along and had a big fallen out over money or something and Porter lost it. Usually when the police wants to talk to someone in a case like this and they refuse to talk and cooperate like Porter, that always scream “guilty”. Porter did it, no doubt. Sometimes best friends don’t last forever.

13 Minutes – the murder of Patrice Endres: Patrice Endres was a young woman who owned a hair salon in a small town of Cumming, Georgia. She suddenly vanished and her remains were found in the woods by a stream. They are looking at three suspects: her husband Rob and two local serial killers. My thoughts is that they aren’t looking at Patrice’s own son, Pistol as a suspect too? On this episode, Rob and Pistol appears to be blaming each other. Pistol thinks Rob did it but Rob maintains his innocence and blames Pistol. It’s scary ’cause as Rob talks about the murder of Patrice on the show, he laughs and smiles about it. They shouldn’t rule out Pistol being a suspect ’cause he could be just as guilty as well. I don’t think those two serial killers did it… I think someone really close to Patrice did it so it had to be either Rob or Pistol. Yeah, it is possible that a son can murder his own mother, it happens lots of times in America.

House of Terror: This story is about the murder of the Dupont family in France and a man by the name of Xavier Dupont is getting blamed for the murder of the family. He hid the bodies under the house and now Xavier is out on the run. At the same time in the murders, Xavier disappeared and hasn’t yet been found. It’s been speculated that he killed himself. A murder suicide kind of thing but I don’t think so. I think Xavier is alive and out in hiding somewhere. He is out of country somewhere, no longer living in France. Definitely hiding from the law.

No Ride Home – the Alonzo Brooks story: Alonzo Brooks was a young man who suddenly disappeared after attending a house party where he got into a heated argument with a few white guys. Alonzo’s body was later found but the case was closed ’cause they can’t find any evidence of what happened to him. I agree that Alonzo was jumped by some other men and was probably beaten to death. I would think Alonzo was probably getting beaten by those guys he was arguing with at that party. There were two guys from that party getting interviewed on that episode but who knows, they might have had something to do with it. They made us believe they only saw him at that party and that’s it and they tried to show emotion but it’s easy to make people believe they’re innocent.

Berkshires 1969 UFO encounters: I’ve always believed in UFO’s and things like that so I totally believe these people and they aren’t crazy. We’re definitely not alone.

Missing Witness… the murder of Gary McCullough and disappearances of Sandy and Lena: Wow this case was something. You want a case that is a total trainwreck and that it makes you angry and frustrated, you gotta check this one out. A young woman by the name of Lena Chapin disappeared when she was 20 years old in Cassville, Missouri. She disappeared in the year 2006, which was 3 years after she came forward to Albert that she witnessed her mother, Sandy kill her third husband, Gary. Sandy had Lena help clean the place up and get rid of the body by burning it. Later on though, Lena changed her story and told law enforcement that she made the story up after she learned that her phone conversation with Albert was recorded and sent it to police. Sandy remarried to a guy name Kris Klemp after divorcing Gary even though he is no longer around. Lena suddenly vanished after she claimed she witnessed her mother killing Gary and saw it all. In 2013, though, Gary McCullough’s daughters won a wrongful death civil suit and was awarded $8 million from Sandy and Klemp. No new news about Lena since 2006 and she still hasn’t been found. Lena had a son named Colter who is probably living out there with Sandy, Lena’s Mom.

Hmmmm, wow once again. A lot of people are speculating that Sandy had something to do with both disappearances, Gary and Lena. She definitely had something to do with Gary but her murdering Lena is just speculation, though. What if Lena is still alive and out in hiding ’cause she’s scared to death of her evil Mom? Could be a big possibility and not many really thought about that. Maybe she’s just scared for her life ’cause she knows how much of a psycho her own Mom really is. Some say, Lena wouldn’t do that ’cause she wouldn’t leave her son to Sandy but she could. Don’t always assume things. It could be that Lena is still alive or she could be dead, ya never know. No doubt, though that Sandy is an evil woman and it’s incredible how she’s still out there living her life. This case is not related to Jaliek Rainwalker at all but there are a lot of similarities and totally reminds me of the Rainwalker case.

Speaking of Jaliek Rainwalker, I hope “Unsolved Mysteries” does a future episode on him for season 2. I’m sure all of Season 1 has been filmed already but we’ll have to wait to see if they’ll do something on Jaliek for Season 2 ’cause we just sent in a submission on their website so it could happen. I hope they do an episode on Jaliek in the future ’cause it’ll be cool. We’ll have to wait and see.

The new Unsolved Mysteries was surprisingly great and I can’t wait for the next 6 episodes. Looking forward to more and if you’re a Netflix subscriber yourself, definitely check it out.

Watched “The Irishman”on Netflix last night and I’m like, “Wow, this is the best film of the year!”

Yesterday evening on Thanksgiving, I watched the Netflix movie “The Irishman” that was directed by Martin Scorsese. I’ll have to say like the title of this topic says that this is the best movie of 2019… well so far anyway and I really mean that too. It’s definitely another winner for Scorsese. Marty Scorsese is a genius film maker, no doubt. He has made a lot of great films over the years like “Goodfellas”, “Cape Fear” and “The Departed” being a few of my favorites that he did. Well Marty’s new film, “The Irishman” I’ve been looking forward to for a long time and it’s finally here.

I was totally impressed with it and blown away. The movie grabs you right from the start as the movie begins. As soon as the movie starts, I watch it from start to finish without any interruptions and yes, it’s a 3 and half hour movie. The movie has an all star cast too… it has everyone from: Robert Deniro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Harvey Keitel, Ray Romano, Anna Paquin, Jesse Plemons, Steven Van Zandt, etc.

This wasn’t the first film Deniro and Pacino teamed up together in. They did a few other movies together like “The Godfather Part II’, “Righteous Kill” and “Heat”. So I think “The Irishman” would be their 4th film together… correct me if I’m wrong? Even though I think Deniro is a shitty person in real life and absolutely hate his left-wing politics, he’s still a great actor and I’m not afraid to admit that. I thought he did a great job in this film, though and this is definitely one of his best roles.

Yes, there was another movie based upon the “Hoffa” disappearance & murder which was a film directed by Danny Devito and starring Jack Nicholson as Hoffa released in the year 1992. You probably remember that film and I remember re-watching that one on Netflix not too long ago. This film and Marty’s “The Irishman” are two different films, though even though they’re similar stories.

“The Irishman” was based upon the book titled, “I Heard You Paint Houses” by Charles Brandt.

“The Irishman” just simply tells the story of Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran who is telling the story of his criminal past being a part of the Buffalo crime family and former union labor high official. The film also tells its own story of the mysterious Jimmy Hoffa disappearance and murder in which Sheeran confessed to. Jimmy Hoffa who was once a labor union leader himself.

I thought “The Irishman” was a brilliant movie and it’s not only the best film of the year, it’s also the best original movie on Netflix. Yeah, yeah, yeah, Netflix has too many original films. Most of them bad and a few of them actually pretty good but finally Netflix released a really good one. “The Irishman” was mind-blowing and I love how Marty is trying to keep mobster movies alive ’cause those type of movies are fading. Marty is the best at making mob movies, though.

Not only that Robert Deniro kills it with his acting… can’t ignore the talent of Pacino, Pesci and Keitel. Those guys killed it too like they always do. We haven’t seen Joe Pesci in a movie in a long time and obviously that man still got it even though he’s 76 now. I just love Pesci’s fast talking voice and that’s probably why he is so popular, really… people just like the way he talks.

The movie was also well filmed, well written and well directed. No complaints at all. Just a perfect all around movie all the way through. I’m definitely gonna give it another viewing, probably next weekend.

Check out “The Irishman”. The movie was amazing and I hope it gets a nomination for Best Picture at the next Oscars.

“Stranger Things” is the best original show on Netflix… I’ll be watching it until it ends for good…

So last night I finished “Stranger Things 3”. Even though it was kind of a short season this year, I was still blown away and impressed by it. This show is a well-written show and very well-acted by the entire cast too. Oh my god, the show is so fucking good. It’s also directed and filmed pretty well too.

Part of the reason I love this show so much is that I love how this show blends science fiction and horror together. The stories of those creatures and those kids is way cool. Some of you may ask me, who are my favorite characters of the show? Well Eleven, of course, who is played by the great young actress Millie Bobby Brown. That character is so badass and so entertaining as hell. I also like Winona Ryder’s character who plays Joyce and she is the mother of characters Will and Jonathan. I also like Dustin and Billy Hargrove.

Another reason I like this show so much is like everyone else, it reminds me of so much like the late 80’s and early 90’s which the show is taken place at during those years. That was back in the days when there was no internet, no cell phones, back when shopping malls were a thing, we had to use pay phones, no such thing as flat screen TVs back then and those were the days when kids actually had to go outside and do things. I know this ’cause I lived my childhood through those years too.

Anyhow, “Stranger Things 3” was a really mind blowing season. It was great all the way through. Excellent storytelling, I can see why it’s the most popular show on Netflix and I’m finally getting into the show so now I’m all caught up.

Now I’m all caught up with “Stranger Things”, I’m going to have to pick a different show to watch on there. I’m thinking of starting “Designated Survivor” with Kiefer Sutherland ’cause I’m hearing great things about that show and I’m probably gonna start it next week.

I’m back on Netflix ’cause I wanted to be back in time before “The Dark Crystal” show gets on there ’cause I love the Dark Crystal and can’t wait for that show too. I also went back on Netflix for other shows that I wanted to watch on there too.

Finished watching “Black Mirror” on Netflix over the weekend… most of it was real good but I didn’t love every episode, though…

I know I’m late getting into the show but I finally watched “Black Mirror” on Netflix. Finished watching it over the weekend. Since everybody’s been talking about the show, I thought I would finally get into it to see what the fuss is all about. “Black Mirror” is a UK science fiction TV show exclusively for Netflix. You don’t have to watch every episode in order ’cause each episode has its own story kind of like “The Twilight Zone” or “Amazing Stories” a little bit.

From what I saw, this show isn’t just a science fiction show. This show included every genre out there: drama, mystery, suspense, horror, thriller, romance, etc. Every genre is pretty much in there.

Throughout the show while there are no big name stars in the cast there were a few big names that made special guest appearances. The biggest names I’ve seen who appeared in the show were: Jesse Plemons, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jon Hamm and Daniel Kaluuya (the star of the “Get Out” movie).

Even though the show is very popular and a lot of people loved it; however, I didn’t love every episode. There were some I thought were pretty good and okay but there were also some that were my absolute favorite. Here’s a list of bad and good episodes of the show:

Episodes that I hated: “Nosedive”, “San Junipero” and “The National Anthem”

Episodes that were my absolute favorite: “Metaldhead”, “Arkangel, “Crocodile”, “Black Museum”, “Playtest”, “White Christmas” (the one that Jon Hamm appeared in) and “Men Against Fire”.

Even though I didn’t like three episodes, I thought it was a great show for the most part. I’m gonna check out the “Bandersnatch” movie later this week.

I’m glad to finally get around to watching “Black Mirror”. I think next I’m gonna start watching “Stranger Things” ’cause I’ve never seen that show before either.

Thoughts on the Motley Crue movie, “The Dirt” on Netflix, I thought it was surprisingly great! Very realistic too!!!

I’ve watched the Motley Crue biopic film on Netflix called “The Dirt” last Sunday night and I thought it was surprisingly good! I wasn’t much of a Motley Crue fan much over the years but after seeing this movie, makes me want to get into their music more. I’ve heard all of their hit songs on MTV, of course so I’m definitely familiar with their music. I only own one Motley Crue album which is “The Saints of Los Angeles” their latest album but I’m planning on getting their older albums soon.

As far the Dirt goes, I was surprised of how realistic and accurate the film was. Metal bands like that can be really crazy in real life with the all the sex, drugs and alcohol and all that stuff. Some of you may ask, is everything seen in the movie accurate? According to the band, Motley Crue themselves, they said yes everything in the movie is pretty much true. I’m gonna have to read the book now which was written by Tommy Lee.

The movie had some pretty mixed emotions, though. A lot of times the movie can be funny and entertaining as hell but at the same time it can also be scary and sad. Why is the film a bit scary? Probably ’cause of all the drug use in the movie and what drugs can really do to you, that’s one thing that film showed you. The film wanted to educate you about the dangers of drugs which they did a good job of, I think. The film also can be pretty sad and gotten serious like with the death of Vince’s daughter, Skylar which was the most serious part of the whole film.

I thought it was a great movie. It’s a great movie for die hard fans of Motley Crue and a good film for new fans too. I don’t know much about Motley Crue but I’m gonna have to learn more about them after seeing this movie. I definitely plan on watching this movie again on Netflix this week. Probably this weekend actually. The film was well-written and well-acted by the cast too. It’s recommended seeing for any music fan. You don’t even need to be a Motley Crue fan at all to watch this film. You can watch it to educate yourself on what the rock n’ roll lifestyle is really like. The rock n’ roll lifestyle may seem like a lot of fun but this film wants to show you that it isn’t always enjoyable.

Definitely check it out if you’re a Netflix subscriber.

I’m now officially back in Netflix but I am back permanently…

So last night I officially signed back up to Netflix. Back in the early Spring of 2018, I cancelled my account ’cause Netflix has decided to go political by making a deal to do projects with Michelle and Barack Obama and then hiring Susan Rice as Board of Directors. Yeah, I took a pretty long hiatus from Netflix which was pretty nice. I don’t regret it at all ’cause Netflix was getting a bit addicting to me anyways. I’ve been away from Netflix for like 10 or 11 months so I’m back for good.

Yeah, Barack Obama has got some projects coming on Netflix but I don’t have to watch ’em and I won’t.

The reason I went back to Netflix is that like my Instagram post says, it’s ’cause of “Punisher – Season 2”. I won’t be able to watch it anywhere else. I also went back in to start watching “Black Mirror” and watch the rest of “Gotham”. I’m also planning to watch the “Bird Box” movie on there this weekend ’cause it looks good. I’m also thinking about watching the rest of “The Walking Dead” and catch up with that. I stopped watching “The Walking Dead” after Season 3 but I’m thinking of getting back into that show too.

Yeah, Netflix leans toward the left when it comes to politics but I’ll use Netflix to watch stuff that I like and watch stuff that I’m interested in. I don’t have to watch stuff by the Obamas and I won’t.

There are plenty of stuff I want to watch on Netflix and I’m already finding plenty of good stuff. Yeah Netflix has gone political but you can ignore their politics and just enjoy the entertainment that is on there. Try it sometime.

Netflix officially signs Barack and Michelle to multiyear deal… I don’t regret ditching Netflix at all then!

Well this is disappointing but not a surprise, though. After Netflix hiring Susan Rice as Board of Directors, you should have seen this one coming. Barack and Michelle have officially signed a multiyear deal with Netflix to work on all kinds of projects for TV shows and films… both scripted and unscripted. They can do whatever they want with Netflix.

http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2018/05/21/obamas-sign-multi-year-netflix-deal-to-produce-shows-and-films.html

Well, like the title says I don’t regret ditching Netflix at all and I don’t miss it. Will I ever return to Netflix sometime in the future? After the signing of Barack and Michelle, I don’t think I ever will now.

You should have seen all this coming ’cause like I said Netflix has always been a liberal biased streaming service. I haven’t seen much conservative content on there. Well, now that Netflix has got Susan Rice and the Obamas working for them, be ready for even more liberal content. I can see the Obamas making documentaries about gay rights, gun control, Climate Change and the usual stuff they politicize about. No doubt that stuff will be coming. Plus the Obamas will probably make autobiographical documentaries about themselves too.

Well today, I’m sure Netflix will be witnessing even more people cancelling. It’s a shame ’cause I used to like Netflix too but not anymore! I don’t want to spend money a month for people who worships criminals and corrupt people!

Susan Rice and Barack Obama are two people that belong in a federal prison and hopefully Pres. Trump will soon send them there. They may not even get to work for Netflix anyways.

Yesterday I cancelled my Netflix membership and felt really good doing that. Do not feel ashamed at all!

29595114_10155498204743131_115840643675441283_n

Yesterday morning, I actually did it. Cancelled my Netflix membership. Yeah, I know it’s gonna piss off some liberal snowflakes, but I don’t give a flying two fucks. My life, my decisions and my opinions. They don’t like it? I don’t give a shit!

Like most conservatives I cancelled Netflix due to them hiring the corrupted Susan Rice as Board of Directors and agreeing to work on projects with the ultra-corrupt Barack Obama. I can’t put my money toward criminals and can’t put my money toward a company supporting criminals. Can’t do it.

I know my decision of quitting Netflix is gonna question some but that’s their problem. Some are gonna be like, “Oh Kev, you shouldn’t leave Netflix over politics”. Keep in mind, these are the same people who calls for boycotts on Chick-Fil-A and the NRA. These are also the same people who refuses to support Trump supporting celebrities like Ted Nugent, Scott Baio and others. These are also the same people who refuses to watch FOX News, reading the Breitbart News site and anything that has to do with right-wing. They accuse the “right-wing” community of boycotting things over politics when the left does the same thing. Liberal hypocrisy like usual. Nothing to see here.

Ah well, who needs Netflix right? It was getting pricey anyways ’cause they keep raising the price and I can’t find much good stuff to watch on there anyways so fuck Netflix.

The question you have ask now is, would I sign up for a replacement of a streaming service for Movies and TV shows? No. Probably not. I did briefly look at Amazon Prime and I wasn’t so impressed with Prime so I opted out of that as well. I won’t sign up for another streaming service for movies and TV shows ’cause they’re all pretty pricey really. Netflix is the most expensive.

The only streaming service I’m gonna keep is WWE Network ’cause I love my wrestling and I’m probably gonna watch that a lot more often.

Instead of streaming services for movies and TV shows, I am going to sign up for the full version of Spotify. Spotify is pretty cheap too, it’s like 9.99 a month for an individual member. I’ve always wanted Spotify so I’m going to go for that. That way I can listen to any albums I want without ads and I can play Spotify on any device. I’ll be able to listen to Spotify on my Ipad and play it through my stereo system.

As far as streaming services for movies and TV shows go, you don’t really need ’em anyways ’cause they can be too addicting. If I wanted to watch a movie or a TV show, I’ll probably buy them on DVD and BluRay. I think that’s a lot better. Binge watching isn’t really good for ya anyways. There’s better things to do in life.
