Pets of the Week July 16, 2018

If that one missing piece in your life is a big, handsome, black and tan dog with a lot of energy and an inquisitive nature, look no further than Duke. He’s a two-year-old Bullmastiff-Shepherd mix, and since he is such a large fellow, he really needs a fenced-in yard that will allow him to get the exercise he craves. He likes people and other dogs – females more than males – but he does not think cats make appropriate companions at all. He doesn’t seem particularly interested in toys, and he appears to believe that if he eats any treats, he’ll ruin his trim, athletic figure. Duke is intelligent and would probably enjoy some training, as that would allow him to develop a deeper bond with his humans. Swing by the Adoption Center and meet Duke today.

Once you’ve spent some time with Susan, you’ll realize she’d definitely prefer to be called Princess Susan. She’s quite the little diva, this 3-month-old brown Tabby, feeling confident in the fact that she is the prettiest feline around. She’s just as high-spirited as most kittens, and she’s very independent, letting you know when she wants to be adored. Therefore, she’d probably do best in a household without small children that might not understand her need for personal space. Susan gets along quite well with other cats, so she’d be perfectly happy to share a home with furry siblings, although she’ll undoubtedly be sure to maintain her princess status no matter where she goes.

Ant-Man and the Wasp

I loved Ant-Man and the Wasp. I think it is better than the original – especially villain-wise. Ghost turns out to be a somewhat sympathetic villain. I like sympathetic villains. Villains that have more depth than a cookie-cutter villain.

Like Ant-Man, Ant-Man and the Wasp brings some laughs and fun back into the MCU.

We see Scott Lang almost finished with his house arrest he has been under for 2 years since Cap: Civil War. (This movie does take place right before the end of Avengers 3.) He’s playing with his daughter, doing work with his friends from the first movie. They have built a security company named X-Cons. Then he gets a weird dream/vision of Janet van Dyne playing hide and seek with a young Hope. He gives them a call and it becomes a race to rescue Janet.

This is where Ghost comes in. She needs the tech the Pyms are using for the Quantum Realm for her own ends. We also have a shady tech/arms dealer in the mix as well.

You do need the mid credits sequence. But the after credits sequence has no narrative impact – and it is in the trailers.

Starring: Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Peña, Walton Goggins, Hannah John-Kamen, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Abby Ryder Fortson, Tip TI Harris, Randall Park, Michelle Pfeiffer, Laurence Fishburne, Michael Douglas, David Dastmalchian

Pets of the Week July 9, 2018

When Leon looks at you with his big, soulful brown eyes, your heart will simply melt. This handsome 2-year-old, brown and white Shepherd mix is sweet, gentle, and loving, wanting nothing more than to spend time with his people. That can mean anything from running around the yard with his favorite toys to smoothing in for a few cuddles. He’s great with kids and doesn’t seem overly interested in cats. He does like canine companions, but he is selective, preferring females over other males. Leon recently had hip surgery and is recovering nicely. You’d never know it, though, as much as he loves to run, jump, and take long walks. Swing by the Adoption Center today to meet the lovable Leon.

Wylie could easily be the poster child for your typical kitten. He’s highly energetic, happily spending his time chasing and tossing his favorite toys in the air. Like most kittens, he’s very curious, cheerfully exploring his environment in search of new things with which to play and new places in which to nap once he’s worn himself out. Wylie is just under 4 months old, so he’s likely to remain high-spirited and fun-loving for some time. He’s also a very handsome boy, a brown and white Tabby with truly beautiful markings on his cute face. And he’s just as sweet and loving as he is playful and attractive. He’ll steal your heart when he comes for a snuggle, purring loudly to tell you how much he loves the attention.

Incredibles 2

Incredibles 2



Worth the 14 year wait. It may have a lot of Comic tropes in it, but they were done exceedingly well.

The sequel focuses on Elastigirl in a similar manner as the first focused on Mr. Incredible. Of course, it takes the family coming together to solve the crisis at hand. :)

The movie starts out with the Underminer incident that began at the end of the first movie. The fallout from this causes the government program overseeing former Supers to be closed down. A pair of siblings come in to offer a way for Supers to be made legal again. The brother runs their fathers company while the sister invents tech for it. They sponsor Elastigirl with a new bike and suit (Edna was really not a fan) for her to fight crime to help get support for Supers back.

The scene where they tell Elastigirl, Mr. Incredible and Frozone why they chose her to be the inital face of the movement was perfect. The cost-analysis of all the property damage that occurred during a Mr. Incredible incident was the icing on the cake.

While Elastigirl is fighting crime, we see Mr. Incredible being the stay at home parent. Taking care of the baby. Helping with Math homework. “Helping” with relationship problems.

The Big Bad’s major plan to deal with Supers comes along and it takes all of the Incredibles, Frozone, and some new Supers to fight it.

Warning for the short preceding this movie, Bao. You will need tissues.

Starring: Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Sarah Vowell, Huck Milner, Catherine Keener, Eli Fucile, Bob Odenkirk, Samuel L. Jackson
