Dark Skies is a Science Fiction horror movie directed by Scott Stewart and starring Keri Russell, J.K. Simmons and Josh Hamilton.

8RixCaThe Barrett family enjoy the simple life in a quiet American town, that is until strange occurrences begin happening around the house and eventually to themselves.

After some of the unusual activity becomes very concerning Lacy and Daniel decide to visit Edwin Pollard an alien specialist who tells them that they are being visited by an alien species called the greys who select humans for taking.

The greys tend to take children most of the time and the Barrett family become very concerned that one of their children may have been selected for taking by the greys.

Dark_SkiesThe alien design in Dark Skies isn’t too creative but is immediately recognisable,you will notice that they look rather generic and are very similar to how aliens are portrayed in most media.

Overall the entire cast did a good job of portraying their characters but one person who really stood out was Keri Russel who played Lacy Barrett the mother of the family, she gave a performance which felt real to me almost as if the children in the film were her real children as she comforted and protected them, she also gave an excellent performance throughout all of her other scenes and was genuinely a joy to watch.

Dark Skies was a surprisingly good film, I wasn’t expecting much from it but it managed to cut down on the jump scares and gave a really creepy vibe, the greys are terrifying and the mere presence of them in the film sent shivers down my spine, give it a watch if you get the chance.

Grape Kool Aid Review

OH YEEEEAH !!

Grape Kool Aid¬†is just one of the many Kool Aid flavours available, for those of you who don’t know Kool Aid is a very popular American Beverage and is something that¬†I have always wanted to try.

Ingredients

Citric Acid, Maltodextrin, Calcium Phosphate, Salt, Artificial Flavour, Ascorbic Acid(Vitamin C), Red 40, Blue 1

From looking at the ingredients Kool Aid Grape isn’t actually that bad for you, the only things I would really worry about if I was giving this to child would be the artificial flavouring and the Red and Blue dyes that are used.

Kool Aid Grape is not very nutritional it has zero fat, carbs and proteins but it does contain 10 percent Vitamin C and 10mg of sodium, on the bright side it is caffeine free.

I was very surprised to read that there are no calories in the beverage, I’m not sure if the ingredients and nutritional facts are the same for each flavour¬†and I probably wont know until I try another¬†type¬†of Kool Aid.

Making Kool Aid is really easy, the instructions say to pour the entire sachet into a pitcher, add one cup of sugar, add a gallon (four pints) of cold water and stir, however it is possible to make one single pint size glass and that is what I did.

The first task is to add the Kool Aid, I added about 1 and half tea spoons

Next add 1 table spoon of white sugar

finally fill your glass with water and stir the mixture.

Grape Kool Aid is a dark purple coloured mixture that was so dark that I could not see through it at all, the taste didn’t surprise me the¬†best way I can describe it is that it tasted like grape flavoured sherbet mixed with water, the grape flavour is very artificial and a little sour to the taste

I would have preferred real grape flavour as I’m not a big fan of artificial grape but if you like the artificial stuff and are a big fan of grape sherbet then I am sure you will love Grape Kool Aid.

Looking forward to the next flavour

7.2/10
