Alien: Covenant

I have discovered that I am not a fan of prequels made decades after the original series began.

Alien: Covenant looked nice. But baring one or two scenes was very predictable. And not in a good way. Kind of Paint-by-numbers. Unfortunately, my tendency to see all things Alien and Predator were my undoing.

Sure and steady Baylee is in the elite group of dogs enrolled in the Pawsitive Prison Program. She has learned over twenty skills and secured herself as a crowd favorite. She loves people and people love her. Baylee prefers to be the only dog in the family and otherwise, is laid back and lazy. However, if you would like a dog to keep you aware of any approaching visitors, Baylee will be glad to oblige. Loving, potty-trained, respects her human’s belongings, and has the manners to stay off furniture — she’s the perfect indoor doggie friend!

With her ears perfectly perked and honeydew melon eyes staring “off stage” for dramatic effect, Joan is a superstar cat who will steal the show. This theatrical black and tan Tabby has a flare for getting attention. Adore me, she says! Pet me, she says! Fluff my bed, she says! But this darling diva’s demands are well-deserved for she will move mountains to show you love. Joan is a demure lady who thrives in the spotlight both to entertain and put a smile on your heart.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Guardians of the Galaxy vol.2 is all about family.

GotG2 opens on a fun action scene set to music off the Awesome Mix 2. This sets us up nicely for the B Plot group that will be after the Guardians. This setup brings Nebula into the mix and introduces us to Star Lord’s biological father, Ego.

Ego the living planet. Ego is portrayed beautifully by Kurt Russell.

We also get more Yondu in this installment. We see him with a more traditional look as well.

GotG2 brings the laughter and some tears. I have not laughed more at a Marvel Studios film. There were multiple instances of someone cutting onions in the theater. Very surprising for the light-hearted franchise in the MCEU.

Ego and Star Lord’s relationship is at the heart of this movie. And all the implications along with it.

Starring: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Kurt Russell, Elizabeth Debicki, Sylvester Stallone, Sean Gunn
