Blade Runner 2049


Blade Runner 2049 picks up decades after the original Blade Runner. You do not need to have seen any of the cuts of the original film to watch 2049.

That said, 2049 is a slow slog. It is pretty and I did not have any issues with the actors’ performances. It just took a long time to get anywhere.

A long time.

I would wait for this one to hit Video on Demand.

I imagine there will be an extended, final cut at some point.

Starring: Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling, Ana de Armas, Dave Bautista, Robin Wright, Sylvia Hoeks, Jared Leto

Pets of the Week October 16, 2017

Harris is a handsome 10-month-old Carolina dog who’s looking for someone to join taking on the world. This light buckskin-colored guy loves spending time investigating the grass, the trees, the birds and, oh cool…there’s a leaf. Intelligent and a quick learner, Harris knows how to sit perfectly, go to his kennel at bedtime, and ask for his bathroom break. Eager for knowledge, he’s always ready to learn more. Like young lads sometimes do, he’ll try to get away with things here and there, but when you ask him to mind his manners, he’ll gladly oblige. Warm and sensitive with a healthy dose of spunk, Harris is a vivacious dog who’s full of life.

Snugglebug Simba is a mellow fella that’s in search of someone who appreciates a true gentleman. Calm, yet playful enough to enjoy batting his ball around the room, he’s looking for a home where he’s the only cat to receive your undivided love and attention. Because of his previous life as a stray, Simba has FIV. Don’t let that worry you though because he has big plans for his future with a family who adores him. He won’t ask for much, just total devotion which he’ll return tenfold. Determined to show you he’s the world’s best cat, Simba will shower you with total adoration.

Pets of the Week October 9, 2017

Lito is a quiet, slightly shy fella looking for a home with a calm atmosphere, relaxing music, a soft couch for lounging, and someone who will fawn over his perky yet flopsy ears. He’s a little reserved when he first meets you, so it’s good to be patient…but don’t be fooled. Lito also has a rascally side that comes out when he endlessly wrestles and plays tag with his canine buddies. A spectacular pal to all, this year-old smoky black Shepherd mix easily wins the hearts of humans and canines alike.

You’ll never lack in conversation with Martie by your side. Branded with the title, Queen of Chit Chat, Martie loves to talk about this, that and everything else. Quite the soprano, her lovely voice can also carry a happy little tune that will cause you to join her in song and sing to the masses. This 6?-?month?-?old’s confidence and lack of modesty has led her to win debate competitions, karaoke contests, and of course, all sorts of beauty pageants. Aiming to be the next news anchor for Animal Planet, Martie will always talk about the latest and the greatest.

Pets of the Week October 2, 2017

Delightfully kind, Peyton greets everyone with a warm smile and wagging tail. She is a combination of charm, innocence, and maturity, always welcoming a hug or gentle petting. However, when her best K9 pal wants to romp in the yard, it will often turn into a friendly wrestling match. At eight-years-old, this fun-loving pooch knows what she wants and can be choosy about her doggie friends. Remarkable good looks, a wonderful disposition, and more years of enjoyment ahead make Peyton pretty perfect!

Mercedes is a two-year-old, Tortoiseshell cat as classy, sleek and stylish as her automobile namesake, yet this girl’s motor purrs louder than any car engine. Delicate, yet strong enough to hold her own, she’s kind, gentle and dignified. Her unique velvet coat is an inky black and golden orange blend that spills beautifully across her whole body from nose to tail. Mercedes will happily share all of life’s luxuries with you.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle



Kingsman: The Golden Circle is a fun popcorn movie. While, I prefer the first movie, Golden Circle kept the over the top action and eccentric villains going.

We get some callbacks to characters from the first movie, A very fun role and performance from Elton John, and a fun (if sterotypical) turn on the American version of Kingsmen.

I think it is worth seeing in the theater.
