Apologize for returning with a rant

Lots to catch up on but have a rant that's truly driving me a bit nuts and isn't that the point of having a blog but to share my opinions.  With everything going on in Texas why am I so amazed that there are people looking to use this to promote hate!?!  And before you argue it isn't hate here's a simple guide rule: is it helpful or hurtful!

904 Life: Publix New Ready to Cook Dinners

While at Publix the butcher asked me "What's for dinner tonight?"  Thinking he was making small talk I showed him my basket of Pulled Pork (which was BOGO).  He then asked if I'd like dinner for free on Publix? As if I'd say no!

Movie Review: Gifted

Oh how I have missed screening movies!  I've been out of the loop these last 4 weeks but now I'm back.
I screened the new Chris Evans' movie Gifted.  First impression from trailers was that it looks nice but I won't spend the money to see it.  So what did I think after screening it?

My Oscar 2017 Predictions

     I think I did a pretty good job of getting to see most of this year's nominated films. In the main categories I missed Moonlight, Elle didn't play here and 20th Century Women just didn't interest me.  Surprisingly I haven't seen two of the Animated Features. The one I'm most disappointed about missing was Moonlight  :( I've marked my Predictions with ⭐ and my favorites with 👑

Movie Review: A Cure For Wellness

My original plan for the weekend was to see United Kingdom, but it's not playing by me yet.  When we first saw the preview for A Cure For Wellness I was not impressed.  Then I saw another one and thought okay, maybe if nothing else is out that weekend.  SirP called today and saw the movie last night and said he really enjoyed the thriller/suspense.  My first instincts were right.

Movie Reviews: Fist Fight and The Wall

I got to attend two screenings this week.  They weren't horrible but they weren't incredible.  They're both out in theaters this weekend and here's what I think.

We're adopting a Puppy ~ No, I Don't Have a Degree in Animal Science!

We lost one of our dogs, Mutiny, back in October.  She was 13 years old and passed away in our arms.  We've decided it's time to welcome another 4 legged member into our family. Things have changed since we rescued Mutiny, it seems you need a BS in animal science to rescue a puppy today ~ seriously!!

Review: John Wick 2

I never heard of John Wick prior to seeing a trailer for John Wick 2 back in October.  When I received the screening tickets I wasn't even sure if I was going to use them until a friend was extremely excited to see the movie.

Review: Lego Batman

I love animated movies, but to be honest wasn't all that impressed with The Lego movie that came out a few years ago.  My original plan was to wait and see Lego Batman on the small screen.  Then I received Screening Passes, and I'm not about to pass that opportunity up.

Review: The Founder

We first saw a preview for The Founder on April 30, 2016.  This movie's release was pushed so often I thought it had been pulled.  Before we get started I wanted to let you know that according to History Vs. Hollywood, The Founder stayed very true to the facts.

Rant: They're Leaving Facebook

Facebook used to be a place where your feed was filled with cute animal videos, amazing recipes, annoying game requests and the selfie hall of fame.  We were able to connect with long lost friends, school alumni and Great Aunt Sue.  In the past few weeks I've received notices that at least 8 people are closing their Facebook accounts, and not just for Lent.

Movie Review: Split

I have to tell you I liked this movie right up until the end. I'll explain why HOWEVER
I'm warning you right now that I have to include spoilers to support my reasoning.  I'm going to share plenty of insight before that but there will be spoilers.  For those of you who don't want to know the ending I've posted the spoiler below my signature so you can't say I didn't warn you or give you a chance to avoid it.  Okay moving on....

A Dog's Purpose ~ The other story

In the hours since I have written my review of the movie A Dog's Purpose a disturbing video has been posted by TMZ regarding the German Shepard (Hercules). How did this happen?
I am not posting the video.

Movie Review: A Dog's Purpose

Every now and then I get tickets for movie screenings and tonight I attended one for A Dog's Purpose due out in theaters January 27th. (Thank you Universal Pictures) Animal Lovers get ready....
UPDATE here is my reaction to the video released on animal treatment during the filming

For your perusal my take on Fences and Hidden Figures

Lost reviews Part 1: La La Land and Manchester By The Sea

It wasn't until a friend commented on my review of Jackie asking about two movies I had already reviewed did I realize that those posts didn't publish. (That's what I get for trying something new with the scheduling app) Instead of publishing four separate reviews I'm condensing them into two posts.  Today I'll share my thoughts on the first two I saw La La Land and Manchester By The Sea.

Movie Review: Jackie

It drives me nuts that movies are nominated for awards (Golden Globes for instance) before they've been released.  Jackie was released January 12th and we were there.

The Return of Lady Bren's World

Happy 2017!!  

I considered returning to my blog a couple of times last year but it never felt like the right time.  Then I realized waiting on a feeling is what has gotten me into more messes than I care to recall.  So here it is a New Year and I'm back.

My goals are to share:

Movie Reviews
What I Heard
904 Life

I hope you'll join me this year
