Pets of the Week March 19, 2018

This handsome dog is hoping to find a forever home with people who like to hike, jog, or enjoy other outdoor activities that will allow him to burn off his Border Collie energy. Mikey is an 18-month-old black and white Hound and Border Collie mix with big expressive brown eyes. He loves meeting new people and he’d be delighted to have doggie siblings who would play along in his highly-spirited play. He’s a medium-sized dog with a big personality, and he needs a fenced-in backyard so he can freely run and play. See Mikey today and expect to fall in love.

Onyx is just as black and beautiful as his name suggests. At just 7-months-old, he has plenty of energy, and his playful personality is sure to keep you laughing. He may be a cat, but he seems to fancy himself a comedian, constantly talking, batting around his toys, and doing all he can to capture your attention. He’s happy to be picked up for a cuddle, but when he’s had enough, he’ll take off again in search of some new exciting activity. Onyx is a sweet boy who loves his humans, but he’s also an independent spirit, so don’t be surprised if he regularly rearranges his living area to suit his needs.

Gringo is an ok movie. I totally had the wrong expectations from the trailer that has been playing.

The trailer makes it appear that this is a dark comedy. The comedy is rather lacking for me. I think one scene got a laugh in the theater I was in…except for one person laughed the whole movie.

Harrold, aka the Gringo, is basically shit upon for the bulk of the movie. This movie happens to him until the final reel.

I do think I would rate this higher if I hadn’t gone in expecting more comedy.

Starring: Joel Edgerton, Charlize Theron, David Oyelowo, Amanda Seyfried

Pets of the Week March 12, 2018

Gavin is a most lovable dog. He’s extremely smart and playful, with enough energy to make sure your whole family gets plenty of exercise. He’s a handsome 2-year-old, medium-sized Australian Kelpie-Shepherd mix whose unique black coat is accented with white, all on his face, chest, and feet, and a light brindle on his muzzle, legs, and the tips of his ears. Gavin is a bit of a flirt, always willing to make new girlfriends, as long as they can keep up with his high-intensity play. His greatest love is squeaky toys, but don’t think you’re going to get him to play fetch; he’d much rather chase whatever you throw and keep it all for himself. Meet him to appreciate his full appeal.

Vera is an independent woman. Or feline, if you prefer. This is one kitty who knows her mind, and she isn’t afraid to speak it. A beautiful girl, she flaunts a crisp white coat, highlighted with coal black markings on her side, near her tail, and across her ears and the top of her head. She’s 3 years old, so she’s grown out of that high-energy kitten stage and has settled comfortably into her adult personality. If cats started a feminist movement, Vera would probably sign up right away, because she strongly believes in getting attention only when she wants it. She’s hoping to find a home with someone who understands cats and will love her for the strong, free lady that she is.

Game Night

Game Night was a fun watch. IT was a good watch once comedy. Not sure how it will hold up on any rewatches.

Max and Annie are obsessed with games. We get an intro montage of them playing party games even up to their wedding reception. They host a weekly Game Night with their friends. This week, Max’s brother, Brooks, is in town.

He hosts a special Game Night. One where an interactive company (think The Game) will stage a mystery game with actors. Brooks gets kidnapped (spoiler not by the actors) and the game is afoot.

The players find out that the game is real a little too early for me. But later twists eases my mind on that.

Starring: Jason Bateman, Rachel McAdams, Kyle Chandler, Sharon Horgan, Billy Magnussen, Lamorne Morris, Kylie Bunbury, Jesse Plemons

Red Sparrow

Red Sparrow is a slow burn spy thriller. I see this movie as an intrigue Unbreakable. We have the introduction to a protagonist I hope we get to see in future sequels.

This movie is not for children. There is graphic violence. There is sexual assault.

Do not be like the mother who brought her small child to the movie.

I would recommend seeing this movie in the theater. It is a slow burn – not an action fest.

Starring: Jennifer Lawrence, Joel Edgerton, Matthias Schoenaerts, Charlotte Rampling, Jeremy Irons, Mary-Louise Parker, Ciarán Hinds, Joely Richardson, Bill Camp, Thekla Reuten, Douglas Hodge, Sakina Jaffrey
