Pets of the Week May 6, 2019

ChewieHow could you possibly resist those big brown eyes and that silly gap-toothed grin? Chewie is certainly hoping that you can’t. He’s named after the beloved Star Wars character because, well, that’s who he looks like. He’s a one-year-old Chow Chow mix with a soft, medium-length light brown coat accented with darker brown on his muzzle, ears, and ruff. Chewie has loads of energy and plenty of love to pass around. He is currently recovering from heartworm treatment, so he needs a couple more weeks of calm, but he’ll soon be ready to show off his playful, fun side again.

MaddieMaddie is all dressed up and ready to party with her new family. This gorgeous 7-month-old black-and-white tuxedo kitty is truly something special. She has plenty of energy, as you would expect from such a young cat, but she has just as much love and affection, and she’s hoping to find someone who will give it back ten-fold. She’s special in another way as well – she’s FIV positive, but that’s not a big deal for her or anyone else. Both of her roommates have been adopted, and she wants nothing more than to find her own forever home.

Hellboy 2019

First, let me say that I am basing the 2.5 Stars score solely on the merits of this film. I am not comparing it to the other Hellboy films.

The good – faithful to the comics. A lot of the comics.

The Bad – too many storylines from the comics were used. I tihnk it would have been better to just stick with one and told that story.

The storytelling felt all over the place. Hellboy did not feel like Hellboy. He was not the Everyman coming in – he was a whiny and complaining. He jsut reacted to events and rarely felt like he was doing anything himself.

If they do go ahead with a sequel, I hope the filmmakers can work together instead of against each other (Studio interference stories do not do anything for this film).

Starring: David Harbour, Milla Jovovich, Ian McShane, Daniel Dae Kim, Sasha Lane, Penelope Mitchell, Brian Gleeson, Sophie Okonedo, Allstair Petrie, Thomas Hadden Church

Synopsis: DEMONS HAVE DEMONS TOO
Hellboy comes to England, where he must defeat Nimue, Merlin’s consort and the Blood Queen. But their battle will bring about the end of the world, a fate he desperately tries to turn away.

Avengers Endgame

I cannot be objective about this movie. At all. You get laughs, tears, the whole gamut of emotions. The screenwriters and directors manage to pay off every movie from the MCU. Every Movie. Even Thor: Dark World.

I cannot go into the opening scene. It is emotionally devastating. It is a gut punch to remind you people missing and what the remaining people are going through.

Spoilers – no Spoliers. The Avengers track down Thanos after the Snap. It does not go as well as they plan. Then we get a significant time jump. We see how the world has progressed in 5 years with half the population gone.

Ant-Man plays pretty heavily into the plot of Endgame. The Avengers prepare a Heist of epic proportions to gather the stones to undo the Snap. But like all plans, it does not survive contact with the enemy.

Along the way we get to revisit moments from all the previous MCU movies. So much character development. Every character gets their moment to shine in one way or another.

Phase 4 and Beyond are setup. But this could easily be the last MCU movie and tie everything up nicely.

I do not have just one favorite or stand out moment from the movie. But several. A lot from the final reel.

Two quotes to highlight a couple:

Thor -> “…I Knew It!”

Spider-Man -> “…Instant-Kill…”

Starring: Anyone and Everyone from previous MCU movies.

LolaSaying that Lola is special would be an understatement. This precious pup is already a bit of a celebrity, as her story has been in the news. She’s an 11-month-old tan and white terrier mix with a huge grin and ears that are truly impressive. And the fact that she only has 3 legs may seem to be her most prominent feature, but once you see her running around happily and snuggling in any available lap, you’ll realize this detail means nothing to her. It does, perhaps, make her unique, but it’s just one of many singularly delightful things about her. Come meet lovely Lola today.

FelixFelix might not be quite as comical as his famous cartoon namesake, but he is certainly just as appealing. This 9-month-old black and white tuxedo kitty is easy on the eyes with his gorgeous markings that include a bright white mustache and four white socks. Plus, he’s a rather laidback fellow, seeming to accept everything around him with a happy-go-lucky attitude. He enjoys a good scratch session and even allows his humans to give him snuggles, contentment and intelligence radiating from his golden-yellow eyes. Felix is waiting to meet you

JerryJerry is a free-spirited fellow with a big heart, a sweet face, and a desire to please that makes him just about perfect. He’s a handsome 7-year-old Retriever mix with a tan coat accented with white on his chest and neck and up across his muzzle and between his chocolate brown eyes. As you would expect of his breed, Jerry isn’t short on energy, and he’d love to have a big yard in which to run. He isn’t particularly interested in toys, however, preferring to play with other dogs or people instead. And he never says no to a tasty treat. Swing by and meet Jerry today.

VeronicaVeronica’s beauty is definitely more than fur deep. She’s sweet, curious, and loving. But it is certainly her looks that will grab your attention initially. She’s a gorgeous Calico with eye-catching markings on her face and huge yellow-green eyes. Veronica, like many cats, truly enjoys her nap time, and she is quite content to enjoy her own company, although she doesn’t turn down pets and scratches, usually making muffins and purring when her humans come for some love. This wonderful cat is sure to make some lucky family very happy.
