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....
