Pets of the Week August 14, 2017

Frolicking, playing and having a ball, Daisy Jane is the sweetest girl of all. She runs through the yard as happy as a clam, spreading her love all over the land. A friend of many and a foe of none, this tri-colored lady is exploding with fun. With ruddy brown cheeks and a white stripe down her nose, she even has white from her knees to her toes. A social butterfly who loves a warm lap, she’ll curl up and kiss and cuddle and nap. She’s not really keen to share tasty treats, so leave her alone while she gets on her eats.

If you enjoy chatting the day away with close friends, then Gillie is the perfect companion for you. Much the same herself, she thrives on sitting with her pals and talking about the latest episode of NCIS, what she witnessed when she peeked through the window blinds, or why she prefers one litter over the next. Gray and white like the perfect cloud combination, this 2-year-old conversationalist never meets a stranger. Visit Gillie at her vacation rental at Petsmart and talk the day away!

Dark Tower 2017

The Dark Tower

The Dark Tower is an ok movie. Not great. But not demand a refund terrible either.

I would recommend waiting to catch this on video.

I have not read the Dark Tower series from Stephen King. So my perspective is solely based on this movie.

My friends have stressed how amazing the book series is. How it ties together different books. This movie did not give me any of that.

Just like Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, The Dark Tower tried to build a huge world in one movie that would have been better spent slowly building over a few movies or a Netflix/HBO series.

Starring: Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey, Tom Taylor

Pets of the Week August 7, 2017

If it wasn’t for Cooper’s size, he would be the epitome of the 1940s cartoon dog, Droopy. This 8-month-old, slow-moving, never-in-a-rush Coonhound mix is as laid back as they come. Despite his enormous feet, he is quite graceful managing a gallop or two when a super surge of energy overtakes him. As is the norm, other dogs at the shelter bark at him while he’s in the yard. However, he is completely unfazed and responds by leisurely approaching each, tilting his head as if saying, “Hello, how are you?” This derpy dog is just the sweetest and he will be the best family friend.

Shimmer is simply stunning. From her orangy-orange and black Torti coat to her oh-so-green eyes, this perfect feline is quite the looker. Not only is she pretty, she has personality, too! She gets her purr motor running as soon as someone stops to admire her and really gets happy when she receives affection. She will always reward you with more love than you give by giving a gentle head butt or rubbing around your legs. Her favorite pastimes are napping, staring, and Scrabble. Increase the value of your home and life by adopting Shimmer.

Blessing is undoubtedly the perfect name for this kind, gentle cat who puts warmth in your heart simply by gazing into your eyes. Mild tempered and calm, she appreciates light petting and an appreciation for her shyer moments. Her disposition is a lovely one, and she graces the room like a princess who may not want to be in the spotlight but instantly evokes admiration, tranquility, and peace. Her soft, kettle black fur, lovely white boots and a fancy white bib are classic and timeless. The elegance of maturity and the innocence of a child, Blessing will bestow love and all things good in her future family’s life.

Atomic Blonde

Atomic Blonde scratched a spy movie itch I didn’t know I had. From the opening scene of a bruised and battered Charlize Theron going in for a debriefing to awesome fights and spy craft against the backdrop of the Berlin Wall, I loved this movie. We also get to see Sofia Boutella’s acting chops.

And the soundtrack. Just perfect for the time and setting of the movie.

I hope this is the start of a new franchise.

Being a spy movie – too much knowledge of the plot would spoil essential details. Suffice it to say, an MI6 agent is killed and highly volatile intelligence was stolen from him. Lorraine is sent to find the missing intelligence with support from McAvoy’s character. That brief synopsis does not do this movie justice.
