Life is an entertaining scifi thriller set in the very near future. We have an international crew aboard the ISS awaiting an unmanned capsule with samples from Mars. The movie sets its feet firmly in reality with interviews to the crew from reporters on earth to a naming ceremony for the lifeform discovered. We get to see the early days of the examination of the lifeform before the inevitable incident that lets it loose.

Life feels very much like the original Alien in places. Minus the murdery android.

I did kind of see the ending coming. But it was still an interesting ride with a small cast in a central location.

Starring: Jake Gyllenhaal, Rebecca Ferguson, Ryan Reynolds, Hiroyuki Sanada, Olga Dihovichnaya, Ariyon Bakare

Pets of the Week March 27, 2017

Petite Norma is a soft-hearted, 7-month-old kitty who was born to a stray mother and hasn’t enjoyed human attention. So at her young age, she’s now just learning about people. She’s realizing that a little bit of love and attention is pretty nice. Her innocence is endearing, while the beauty of her butterscotch and smoky black coat is captivating. A delicate princess, Norma looks forward to a quiet home with people who will show her kindness, offer her gorgeous window views of the outdoors, and spoil her with kitty treats.

Google the word “handsome” and you’ll see a picture of Bruce. His steel gray coat gleams in the sunlight like a shiny new car, and his stocky, strong legs are built to race around the world with enthusiasm. A true sports-dog, he’s always game for a cross-country trip with his best human pals or a game of toss the toy. With his boyish grin, exceptional disposition and an abundance of affection for all, Bruce is the boy that fits perfectly into any family.
