Arrival

Ultimately, Arrival is like Contact. I liked the design of the aliens in this movie, the path to communication, and the gut punch revelation for the main characters, but this was a long movie. I left the theater multiple times and did not feel like I missed anything when I got back.

Starring: Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, Forest Whitaker

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was a fun romp in the Harry Potter world. It was nice to see another wizarding community – especially set during the prohibition era.

I really enjoyed this movie. Was it the best thing I have seen this year? Nope. But it was nowhere near the worst.

This movie had me smiling through most of it. It had good effects, funny comedic moments, and some spell-slinging action.

Thankfully, this is not exposition the movie. Since this is set in the Harry Potter world, we do not have to be reintroduced to the way things work here. We get some familiar names sprinkled throughout.

Loved the villain reveal at the end of the movie.

If you enjoyed the Harry Potter books or movies, you should see this in theaters.

Starring: Eddie Redmayne, Colin Farrell, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller

burtonThis young, orange classic Tabby is a three-legged one-of-a-kind wonder. At only a couple months old, he was surviving on his own at The Burton Center. After coming to the shelter, all were astonished to discover that he had a severely malformed front leg. Dr. Paula Watkins offered to remove the leg to give this little boy kitty more physical freedom. Fully recovered, and much more comfortable with people, Burton is now available for adoption. For his safety, he needs to be an indoor cat and given space to adjust to homestyle living.
