Sad Movie Week

Summer movie season is here.  It is a time for really big movies to come out.  What do we get this weekend, Action Point.  It looks like Jackass meets Meatballs.  Jackass movies were fun, but when they are set to a fictional storyline. . .I will not be rushing out to see this one.  Stick with Solo, Deadpool 2 or the Avengers. 

Talking Bear

I went to see Solo the other day.  I asked one of my daughters if she wanted to see it.  She replied "I am not going to see a movie with a talking bear in it!"

Just a Little Rain

At lunch, I decided to go for a walk.  It was drizzling, but nothing much.  I did bring my umbrella.  I live in Florida.  Showers can happen at any time.  Halfway into the walk, that proved to be a true statement.  The drizzle turned to rain.  Then, it got harder.  By the end, I was soaked.  My shoes were soaked.  Luckily, I had a spare set in my office.  My socks were wet.  No spares.  In the future, I am going to store a set of socks, pants, and shirt in my office.  I already have dry shoes.

On Again, Off Again

I guess Trump is trying to turn talks into one of his reality shows.  We'll have to wait to the last minute to see if it will happen.  I'm sure his faithful, mindless followers will hope it ends in You're Fired! with a missile launched at NK.  I'm hoping for a peaceful resolution.  There are real people over there that will die.  It will not just be NK.  If we do something, SK, China and Japan could get hit.  Then there is NK's missile.  They say it can go as far as the US.  Do we really want to call that bluff?

Solo: A Movie Made for the Summer

My daughter and I saw Solo today.  It was a great movie.  There are some great performances.  Even the guy who places Solo.  I did not sit their and think it was an actor trying to impersonate Ford.  Glover is spot on as Lando.  This movie is worth your time.  Don't pay attention to the Box Office.  I don't know why they fight over Memorial day weekend.  Most people travel.  It's the start of summer.  It's also a time of remembrance.

Altercation at the Theater

During the movie, there was a verbal altercation.  I guess one person bumped another.  She says loudly "I said excuse me!"  Then, that was followed by cussing and patrons running out into the lobby.  The people next to me were wondering if they should leave before shots were fired.  Nothing else happened.

Deadpool 2

I finally went to see Deadpool 2.  It was a great movie.  It continued the jokes and great action.  Stay through the credits or at least midway.  It is a must see for adult fans.  I don't see why people bring young children to movies like this.  They don't care, even when the child starts acting up.

Running out of Ideas

Hollywood has a film called Tag coming out.  Are they running out of ideas?   What's next Pet Rock?  Maybe they could do a Rock, Paper, Scissor movie.  I really wish they would stop making movies after games.  Most of the time, they are lame.  Jumanji is a rare exception.  Maybe Tag will make a lot of money and they can do a Hide and Go Seek Movie.

Rain Out

Memorial Day is coming.  This is usually a time of cook outs and remembrance of those who served in the military.  My Grandfather was in WW2, my father was in the Navy for a time, I have an aunt who served and I believe an uncle who served.  As for cook outs, it will not be happening in Florida.  It looks like our storms are starting early this year.  We have a tropical storm heading our way.  It looks like a wet weekend.  Off to the movies we will go.  Deadpool 2 and Solo is on our list.  There are other movies out there.  Plus, the theaters are air conditioned.

The Predator

This week they released the trailer for The Predator.  I can not wait to see this one.  I remember going to the first movie.  I was a teen.  I had to sneak into the movie.  I bought a ticket for a PG film and then just walked into Predator.  I knew this was going to be a special movie.  The director had done Die Hard.  Teaming with Schwarzenegger was going to be a good action movie.

Deadpool 2

Friday, Deadpool 2 comes out.  I can't wait to see this one.  The first one was a fun adult movie.  The second one looks like it will carry on that tradition.  Go out and see it. 

Rainy Season

We have a week of rain predicted.  I hope this means our rainy season has begun.  My garden is doing well and this will cut back on watering.  Our grass really needs the moisture.  It's funny to go out with all this rain and see people watering their lawns.  Florida should really crack down on people that over water their lawns.  I don't care what home owner associations have to say about it. They are part of the problem.

Gardening in the Summer

Spent the morning pulling weeds.  It was stuffy and hot.  I added a sun screen to help with the sun.  At noon, the sun beats down on the plants.  So far, it seems to be working.  I even went to get more.  I am adding Stevia.  I will have to see what I can do with it.  The herbs are going crazy.  I'm going to dry some out.

Bill and Ted Return

Bill and Ted are coming back.  No they are not rebooting the series.  Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are going to star as older versions of the teenage time travelers.  It will be interesting to see how it comes out.  I grew up on these movies.

Viewing Order

If you plan to go see the Avengers, make sure to watch Thor: Ragnorak first.  One goes into the other.  I will say, the Avengers was awesome.  I liked the pacing, the storyline, and the villain.  There are surprises in the movie, of which I will not speak.  I can't wait for the next installment that comes out in May of 2019.

My family saw the movie Sunday.  Today, is my chance.  AMC has a special 5.00 deal.  Don't know if I will say much.  I don't want to give away anything.

Thor Review

If you have not seen this movie, go find it.  It has action and comedy.  It is an improvement over the last movie.  The director is amazing.  Taiki Watiti even plays Korg in the movie.  If you like the humor, you need to find his other movies, like Things We Do in the Dark and Hunt for the Wilderpeople.

I finally get to see it this weekend.  I know, I am behind.  It's hard to see everything with small children in the house.  I can't take them with me. 

May the Fourth be With You!

It's that special time of the year.  Time to celebrate Star Wars.  I'm surprised they did not release Solo today.  I know it is too close to Avengers.  Wear your Star Wars apparel and celebrate.

Infinity Wars

I finally get to see this movie, I hope.  My daughter wants to go on Sunday.  Fine with me.  I just hope it is with my wife.  So far, I have only heard one spoiler.  Don't worry, I will not tell you any once I do see the movie.  I would say, if you plan to see, see it in IMAX.  They filmed it using special cameras developed by IMAX.  This is the first time being used.
