A fast paced thriller, 88 follows Gwen (Isabelle), a young woman who comes to in a road side diner with no idea where she is or how she got there. Split between two timelines, blurring reality and fiction, Gwen gets taken on a revenge-fueled journey as she seeks out the person responsible for her lover’s death.
Hey movie fans! Last night I watched a flick called 88 starring Katherine Isabelle (American Mary, Ginger Snaps, NBC’s “Hannibal”), Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future trilogy, The Addams Family, Who Framed Roger Rabbit) Jesse McCartney (“All My Children,” Alvin and the Chipmunks franchise, Chernobyl Diaries) and Michael Ironside (Top Gun, Total Recall, The Machinist)
OK people…don’t the let the synopsis fool ya on the top of tha page. Personally, that doesn’t give the movie justice. (lol)
My thoughts on 88?!
🙂 Now…even though I love me some Katharine Isabelle…I have to start off with Christopher Llyod. His performance in this…WHOA. I don’t know about ya’ll…but I’m used to seeing him in comedies – the BACK TO THE FUTURE trilogy – but WHOA. In 88 he plays a gangsta named Cyrus – this dude don’t play! Llyod was great. He goes dark people. It weird cuz – – I found myself liking him…then not liking him…then liking him again. It was a roller coaster of LIKES! (lol)
Katharine Isabelle – not only is she HOT…but…I thought she delivered as well…she always does in all her movies. Have you seen her in the TV series HANNIBAL? Hey…wait a second…I wonder if she got paid TWICE in 88. (lol) Watch the movie and you’ll see what I’m talking about. (lol) Hmmmmm…what else did I like. I liked the story. It has twists and turns. It definitely keeps you on your toes. I liked the strippers. Strippers are always good in a movie. (lol) I really enjoyed the character’s Lemmy (HOT as well) and Ty – they added a certain comedy to this twisted flick. While watching the special features on the Blu-ray – – I come to find out – Lemmy is played by 88 director/writer April Mullen (who is HOT by the way) and Ty who was played by 88 writer Tim Doiron – every time he came on screen – he reminded me of Steve Zahn – either way – HIGH 5 TO THEM!
🙁 Do I have any complaints? Nope.

I give 88… 3 1/2 out of 5 popcorns! I think 88 is worth the watch movie fans. For me – it had that Quentin Tarantino vibe to it. OH and if you plan on watching 88 – be sure you PAUSE the movie before going on a pee or popcorn break – you could get confused. 😉 It’s a tight flick people – I even liked how the credits started from top to bottom…I know…I’m weird. (lol)
