Pets of the Week January 15, 2018

As soon as Russell gives you one of his trademark big grins and snuggly hugs, you’ll be sold. This 18-month-old black and white Labrador Retriever mix is as sweet as they come, and his personality definitely reflects the Lab side. He’s packed with energy and eager to please, and nothing makes him happier than getting a belly rub for good behavior. Russell seems to be accepting of other dogs, so he would probably be content to have furry brothers and sisters. Because he is quite young and very active, a large fenced-in yard would be ideal, so he can regularly stretch those super long legs.

If you’re a cat lover, Amelia will make your day and life. She’s about 2 years old and no longer living in the rambunctious kitten stage and has settled into a quiet, laid-back way of life. She’s now content to sit by a window and watch the fascinating things happening on the other side of the glass. This sweet-tempered Tabby is as pretty as she is calm and easy-going, displaying a beautiful orange blend throughout her brown coat of very soft hair.

Wolf Warrior 2

Fun action movie.

I first heard about this movie on the Trick or Treat Radio podcast. I jumped onto this one without seeing the first entry in the series. I will probably catch the first one (streaming on Netflix as of Dec 2017).

You have the main character from the first movie, Leng Feng, heading to Africa after leaving the military. Some rebels attempt to take over the country he is currently in and Action Movie ™ ensues. We get enough plot to keep Leng Feng in the midst of the action.

The stunts and gun play were amazing. The CGI blood less so. Two words. Improvised Crossbow.

Starring: Jing Wu, Frank Grillo, Celina Jade, Gang Wu, Hans Zhang, Qian Yu, Nan Yu, Shanshan Chunyu, Haifeng Ding, Oleg Prudius, Heidi Moneymaker, Aaron Ly

Pets of the Week January 1, 2018

If you’re seeking a big, goofy love bug to complete your family, look no further than Sam. This 3-year-old brown and white Pointer mix is always eager to meet new people and lay his head against your chest to simply enjoy the contact. He’s an energetic guy, so he’ll need a large fenced-in yard where he can run, play, and enjoy in his favorite activity: rolling around on his back, giving his back a good scratch. He seems excited about the idea of playing with other dogs but isn’t particularly interested in cats. Sam likes kids, but he weighs 75 pounds and probably needs a household with only older children.

Her name says it all: Beauty. This solid black cat is as quiet and calm as she is pretty. She’s only 10 months old, but she already acts like a more mature kitty. She’s comfortable around other cats but prefers companions that are equally tranquil. The high energy of children makes her nervous, so she’s seeking a household that is going to provide her the calm atmosphere she loves. Beauty is sweet and affectionate, preferring gentle scratches and rubs to spirited playtime.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is a nice simple popcorn movie to cap 2017.

It is not a deep thinking movie, but it is entertaining. I saw this movie and the theater was filled with groups of teens. It was nice hearing how much they enjoyed this movie. Probably made me like it more.

I can honestly say that if I am watching a movie with an audience that is having fun, it does make me like the movie more.

I would recommend you go see this. Especially if you have MoviePass.

Starring: Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Rhys Darby, Bobby Cannavale, Nick Jonas, Alex Wolff, Ser’Darius Blain, Madison Iseman, Morgan Turner

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

The Last Jedi did not feel as focused as the Force Awakens to me.

I felt the pacing was off and some of the transitions between scenes were rather sharp.

The story gets darker than the first, but ends on a note of hope.

I’m conflicted about the final fate of some characters. Some we learn nothing about (guessing it is being held back for a Tales movie) and others almost felt like clearing the board for the new class.

Starring: Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran
