Tag

Just finished watching the Tag movie at the theater. Movie about a group of guys playing tag into adulthood. Funny movie; really liked it. Liked it even more knowing it is based on a true story! See more on IMDB.

Adrift

True story that has a young couple lost at sea with no power... adrift! While crossing the ocean delivering a sailboat for an elderly couple, a hurricane crosses the young couple's path, damaging the sailboat... no engine, no sails... save for a makeshift jib.

Good movie with some interesting things to observer while the couple... more the woman than man, deal with survival at sea! The man is injured and unable to assist. Do check it out; for more see IMDB.

Dead Pool 2 #deadpool

Saw the first one liked it; saw the second one liked it, too. Ryan Reynolds and his one liners were hilarious. Add the ending credit scene, and all things come together...including the Green Lantern mistake! LOL!

While there, had to have a Waffle Cone Gelato!

Life of the Party

Movie with Melissa McCarthy as a Mom who goes back to college to complete here degree after her husband divorces her. She goes back to the same college she dropped out of after her daughter was born. Turns out it's the same college her daughter is enrolled in!

Funny moments, and a little twist and turns to keep you entertained. Would hold as a first date movie for two reasons... divorce for a budding relationship may not be good message and overall, felt it was more a rental for a rainy day, then one to see in theaters.

For more, see it at IMDB.

The Avengers - Infinity War #avengers #marvelcomics

Checked out The Avengers - Infinity War. Long movie but still good if you are a franchise fan of the Avengers. Lots of twists and turns and heroes dying... that said, there are movies planned for the future, so don't think they are all dead, yet.  Plus, the comment made by Dr. Strangelove hints towards an explanation of what happened in this movie. Bottom-line: If you are a Marvel Fan, all is well.  If not, then okay to wait for the DVD.

PS: There is a short-snippet at the end... the very end, of the credits.

Jumanji - Welcome to the Jungle #firstdatemovie

Pleasant surprise to this sequel to Jumanji! This starts off in 1996 and takes up again in 2017. Great cast and story line. Liked how they transitioned this one to the 21st Century. Safe first date movie... do rent it when you get the chance!

Tomb Raider 2018

Although Angelina Jolie was not in this movie, her replacement did well. More prequel to the others Lara Croft movies, this one did not disappoint. Liking it! Glad to see this one at the theater instead of waiting for the DVD!

Red Sparrow

Just got back from the movies. Saw Red Sparrow... Been reading the book but decided to see it to get an early jump on tHe book. Have a ways to go but picked up differences already in the movie. Still was a good movie, liked Jennifer Lawrence and others... Lots of twists and turns plus several painful scenes where blood is spilled. Glad to have seen it instead of waiting for the DVD!

Blade Runner 2049

Sequel to the original Blade Runner that has a few twist and turns to think about. Great cast with Ryan Gosling, Jared Leto, and hottie Ana De Armas. Also, has Harrison Ford that adds the twist to the plot! Liked the movie; had to watch the original first before watching it, just to refresh my memory of the story line. For more see IMDB.

Only Living Boy in New York

Really liked this one with lots of twists in turns in a love triangle movie with lots of great actors... Jeff Bridges, Pierce Brosnan, Kate Beckinsale... and a lead played by Callum Turner. Do check this one out! For more, see IMDB

PS: Like one of the songs in the movie....






Foreigner

Jackie Chan in a different role... more serious than other movies he is in. Did a great job playing the grieving father... timid and sorrowful on the outside but a total bad ass! See more at IMDB


Snatched

Rented this one and was pleasantly surprised! Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn team together in a movie about a daughter and mother on vacation but something goes wrong... funny stuff. For more see IMDB


What If

Liking this one.. "What If" with Harry Potter - Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan from "The Big Sick". Won't go into detail other than I liked it... for more, see IMDB.

The Girl on the Train

This one has Emily Blunt playing an alcoholic ex-wife who has been "stalking" on our ex-husband and his new wife. Starts out slow but picks up, and then the action moves quickly to an end that makes sense... check it out on a rainy day and rent it. For more, see IMDB


Soul Assasin

Gutted through this one while working out on the treadmill. Movie that has the main character dealing with twists and turns related to a company he works for... surprises here and there, and lots of shooting but still felt the movie was lacking something. Would not recommend as a first date movie; would recommend skipping it. For more see IMDB.
