Movie Review Monday

Due to a busy schedule this past week, I didn't get a chance to write up a movie review. In lieu of a new movie review, I give you one from around this time last year. Enjoy your movie watching, everyone! :)
Movie Review Monday

Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension (2015) - Most people have probably had their fill of the Paranormal horror series. This is the 6th film in the series, after all. (I may have lost count, btw.) Okay, there are so many holes in this plot, they could very easily have used one of them as the portal into the “ghost dimension” instead of spending the extra budget on special effects. ;-) Actually, the special effects were quite good and fun to watch. And to the film’s credit, it did well to connect to the other films in the series. On the other hand, it added a twist to the overall tale that didn’t quite add up logically. Then again, why am I applying logic to a horror film? Most viewers will probably agree that none of the sequels match the sheer fright factor of the original film. Still, this one was scary enough to make me lose sleep for a couple of nights afterward. I give it extra points for that. Plus, it wasn’t as bad as I expected. So it gets bonus points for my low expectations. ;-) I'd give it a 7 out of 10.

On day 3, we passed through Presidio, visited the Fort Leaton historical site, hiked a couple of trails along the Rio Grande in Big Bend Ranch SP, and checked out the Fossil Bone Exhibit at Big Bend NP. :)

On day 2, we started with breakfast at the Indian Lodge’s Black Bear, took a driving tour through Davis Mountains State Park, hiked the trails at the Chihuahuan Desert Research Institute, and checked out some roadside art exhibits and architecture in Marfa. :)

Last Thursday Ant and I decided to treat Mom and Dad to a mariachi mini concert.

(No instruments were actually played — or harmed — during this photo shoot) :)

Keeping Up with the Joneses (2016) - The tranquil life of a mild mannered suburban couple is upended when a charming and well-traveled couple moves into their cul-de-sac. Zach Galifianaki, Isla Fisher, Gal Gadot, and Jon Hamm star in this action-comedy. And the entire quartet has a natural chemistry and comedic flare that makes them fun to watch. However, the film feels a bit off balance with a somewhat slow first half where the laughs are sparse and a frenetic second half where the story becomes quite a bit more humorous and entertaining. Still, not a bad film overall. If you’re in the mood for light-hearted comedy with some fun action scenes, you might enjoy this one. I’d give it a 7 out of 10.
