maverickTenderhearted, devoted, and calm are traits that Maverick has in abundance. This wise, 8 year young Labrador’s only want is to share his life with yours. His offering of soft kisses, a contagious smile, and amber glances will make you want to wrap your arms around him and never let go. Maverick appreciates the simple joys of life — a gentle touch, a walk, or a quiet moment — and expects nothing for his return of loyal love.

burtonThis young, orange classic Tabby is a three-legged one-of-a-kind wonder. At only a couple months old, he was surviving on his own at The Burton Center. After coming to the shelter, all were astonished to discover that he had a severely malformed front leg. Dr. Paula Watkins offered to remove the leg to give this little boy kitty more physical freedom. Fully recovered, and much more comfortable with people, Burton is now available for adoption. For his safety, he needs to be an indoor cat and given space to adjust to homestyle living.

She prances through the yard showing herself off, then instantly switches to tomboy mode running around the yard after her favorite ball or squeak toy. Tilly is a young dog who has a lifetime of love to give and fun to live.

Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange does an excellent job of introducing magic into the Marvel movie universe. Since they treated Asgardians as aliens with technology, I was not sure they were going to get mystical.

Doctor Strange is the story of a highly-skilled, arrogant surgeon who has a terrible injury to his hands. He goes through every conceivable medical treatment possible before turning to … other options. During the course of his training, he has to face off with a sorcerer who has turned his back on the Earth and is welcoming Dormammu – think mystic Galactus.

The special effects are everything you would expect from a Marvel Studios production now. The reality bending effects did make me a tad dizzy at points, but they did their job at disorienting people.

There is a mid-credits scene and an after credits scene you will want to stay for.

Starring: Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Mads Mikkelsen, Tilda Swinton, Benjamin Bratt

domino

With his eyes and ears encircled in black, and back-dropped by his brilliant and bright white coat, one-year-old Domino could not be more aptly named. His resting face is a permanent grin, which is a perfect reflection of his kind heart and a gentle demeanor. Domino is wonderful with everyone, from children to mature adults, as well as other dogs. There’s no question that when you meet him, you’ll find Domino to be the perfect companion for outings, play time, or a simple night at home with a best friend.

His shiny, soot black coat and honeydew melon colored eyes make him extraordinarily handsome. Add his prankster personality and motor boat purr and you have Mr. Irresistible at your service. Make sure to swing by Petsmart and let this comical little guy make your day!

Scherzo Diabolico

Scherzo Diabolico is a slow-burn tale on a person’s decision to take his life into his own hands in the worst possible way.

Directed by Adrián García Bogliano (Late Phases, Here Comes the Devil), Scherzo Diabolico tellls the story of a man who gets passed over for a promotion and does not have a good relationship with his wife. We see him spend considerable time stalking a high school student before eventually kidnapping her.

I do not want to go into too much farther into the plot than that. This movie has twists and changes your expectations regularly. The very final scene still sticks with me. Very simple to produce – very heart wrenching.

One caveat, this is a subtitled movie. And it is a slow-burn movie.

Scherzo Diabolico is currently streaming on Netflix.

Starring: Francisco Barreiro, Daniela Soto Vell, Jorge Molina, Milena Pezzi, Vita Vargas
