Pets of the Week April 4, 2016

Razzle
Fun-spirited Razzle is a one-year-old, female American Staffordshire and Chocolate Lab blend. She is loving, loyal, affectionate, dependable and a happy friend with loads of energy and intelligence. While she plays like a puppy, she can be a steady pal who doesn’t mind hanging out on the couch and relaxing. She is a great buddy to other dogs, enjoys a good round or two wrestling with them, and loves running through the yard chasing bees. An active human companion or family would be the perfect match for her enthusiastic personality.

Roxie
10-year-old Roxie is looking for a nice cozy home to spend her retirement years. Content to just relax in your company, she would prefer indoor living with access to all the comfy spots in the house. Like a nosy neighbor looking out a window, Roxie has to know what’s going on at all times and share play-by-play commentary. She’s quite the talkative Golden Girl kitty. Bringing Roxie into you your home and heart would be especially gracious because when you adopt a senior cat, you’re truly saving a life.

TL;DR Good characterization of Batman (maybe my favorite) and Wonder Woman. Terrible Lex Luthor. Meh story and plots.

Pets of the Week March 28, 2016

Krissco
This 5-year-old handsome American Staffordshire Terrier is a dependable, good-natured, loyal companion. It would surprise some that this muscular dog with the impressive, confident presence is so easygoing. He has no need for other doggie companions because Krissco entertains himself every day running in the yard and playing with his toys. He has already learned how to sit and stay down, and is working on door manners. He must have moderate daily exercise to maintain his splendid muscle tone. Companionship is even more important, and extensive ongoing socialization is paramount. Krissco will respond well to a confident owner who will provide training and consistent rule-following. And if exuberant face-kissing is something you want, then Krissco can definitely fill the bill.

Sassy
Sassy is 9-year-old Maine Coon mix, good-natured and affable, adapting well to many lifestyles and personalities. She likes being with people and has the habit of following them around, but she isn’t needy. She’s happy to receive attention when you direct it her way, but if you’re busy she’s satisfied to just supervise your doings. Close a door on her and she will wait patiently for you to realize the error of your ways and let her in. She’s not typically a lap cat, but she does like to be near you. Maine Coons usually enjoy a kittenish love of play; Sassy is more dignified, but she isn’t above a good game of chase. This overly relaxed feline would make a wonderful addition to a home with adults who enjoy a quiet lifestyle and napping, her most favorite activity of all.

Gun Woman


Blu-Ray


DVD

Gun Woman is currently available on Netflix.

From IMDB: A brilliant doctor on a quest for revenge buys a young woman and trains her to be the ultimate assassin, implanting gun parts in her body that she must later assemble and use to kill her target before she bleeds to death.

Directed and written by Kurando Mitsutake

Starring: Asami, Kairi Narita, Noriaki Kamata, Matthew Floyd Miller, Dean Simone

TL;DR Pretty good movie. A very disturbing villain – someone you want to see get theirs. Copious amounts of nudity – just not the good kind.

Trick or Treat Radio podcast #188 features an interview with Kurando Mitsutake. They reviewed the movie itself in episode #153.
