Piranha 3D…another bad Netflix movie

I leave  the new movies to Zach… because well I love his reviews and I find them entertaining, that being said I love bad Netflix movies just as much and they are worthy of being reviewed on this blog.

Piranha 3D is an oldie in fact I remember when it came out, hell I even remember thinking I wanted to see it.    So when I saw that this pos film was on Netflix I knew it was time to indulge.

and oh my god guys what glorious crap it was.

What I love most about horrible movies is often the ridiculous plots have even more ridiculous endings but at the same time you might think damn could that actually happen?  Then you realize, you have lost your mind and the beer is starting to mess with your head and maybe it is time to cut yourself off.

Piranha is no different, this plot is really simple, an underwater earthquake happens, letting loose a bunch of man eating fish, that eat all the topless coeds.  The end.  Yes I am serious that is the plot these piranhas apparently love boob.

Seriously dudes there are a ton of topless coeds in this film.  I mean I went to a lot of spring breaks in college but I can’t exactly say I witnessed this much boob but after a google search of Lake Victoria Spring break… it might be the most realistic thing about this movie.  Just saying.

Apparently Lake Havasu’s Spring Break is one of the craziest Spring Breaks in the country, who knew?   Why does this matter, well this is where the film is set, except it is called Lake Victoria which is what the spring break is called.   I don’t know why it changes for Spring Break… it doesn’t make sense to me either.

This film has some interesting names… Elizabeth Shue (yes she is still alive), Ving Rhames (Julliard is probably so proud they have an alumni in this film ) the chic from gossip girl Jessica something or other, Richard Dreyfuss who must have owed someone a favor and Christopher Lloyd who is batty as hell.

So not a bad cast all things considering.

Really after watching this film I wish I could  tell you it offered some sort of life changing moment it didn’t.   You will likely have to go to Lake Havasu’s Spring break for that to occur.  That being said if you have had a few apple ciders and want to be entertained well my friends this might be the film for you.

The Hunter (The Legend Chronicles #1) by Theresa Meyers


Summary: Colt Jackson is one of three brothers who hunt supernaturals across the frontier. He needs to summon his demon to close the rift allowing more Darkin across. Instead of a horned monster, curvy redhead succubus Lilly bargains for her humanity. Her charm and brain plus his silver-loaded pistol and mechanical horse save them so far, but he may need to sacrifice his soul.

Last week the theme of my reading habits was to clean out the audio books that I had been collecting but not reading… err listening to.   Fans of Supernatural really love this book, if you are also a fan of westerns and steam punk then you are going to LOVE this book.

I really loved this book, I am not the biggest steampunk girl but I really enjoyed this  book.  I also loved the dynamic between Colt & Lilly.  I will continue to read this series because it is a lot of fun.  It is a nonstop ride from start to finish that you will struggled to put down.

Scottsdale Heat by B.A. Trimmer


Set in: Arizona
Summary: In this thrilling romantic adventure, Laura Black is an investigator for a highly successful Scottsdale law firm run by slightly shady Lenny Shapiro. She’s hot on the trail of con-man Alexander Sternwood, the missing grandson of wealthy widow, Muffy Sternwood. It sounded like an easy case, at least until she was kidnapped by a couple of upset Russian hit-men named Boris and Ivan, then by two seriously psychotic brothers called Smith and Jones, then finally by Tough Tony DiCenzo, head of the largest crime family in Scottsdale. To top it off, she’s found a dead body that seems to be a message directed toward her. Now, with the help of ex-cop Gina Rondinelli, a stripper named Danica, and her best friend Sophie, they need to make sure that a slightly illegal international jewel sale goes smoothly, or else. All of this pales in comparison, though, with an even greater danger. Laura has decided that now would be the perfect time to get back together with her old boyfriend Jackson Reno, who just happens to be a Scottsdale detective. The only hitch in her plans for romance is Maximilian, a gorgeous crime lieutenant who has his sights set on Laura, a feeling that she can’t help but return. Craziness, romance, and more than a little danger are in store when Laura Black and her Scottsdale friends are on the case!

When I set out to find a book set in Arizona I came across this title, I am glad I found this book. If you are a fan of Stephanie Plum this might be a fun series for you to try out.

I found myself laughing at the situations Laura got herself in, plus I like any book that has a bit of love drama.

Warning though there is an obvious love triangle forming but it doesn’t take away from the story… Also I like both the guys I am not sure who’s team I am on just yet.

I enjoyed the story, my mom lived in Arizona for bit and it was fun reading about the different parts of Arizona that I have personally visited.

Overall I gave this book four stars. I found the book fun, light and beachy. I am likely going to save the next book for my beach trip to Mississippi, because it is just that much fun!
