+Bob Adragna - For your birthday, I'm going to make you a delicious omelet with these cage-free eggs. Please let me know what toppings you'd like on your omelet.

Also, Happy Birthday! :D

Movie Review Monday (Tuesday Edition)

Once again, I’ve had a packed schedule the past week. And once again, I’m giving you a special Tuesday edition of my movie review. Enjoy. :)

Suicide Squad (2016) - From DC Comics fame (or rather infamy), a varied group of villains-turned-heroes band together to prevent a much bigger baddy from destroying humanity. I’ll cut to the chase on this one. The makers of this film seemed intent on cramming as many plot events and characters as possible into one 2-hour-ish movie, making shortcuts and sacrificing coherency in the process. I do give points to the film for high quality special effects, which are always fun for me to watch. I’m sure a sizeable part of the budget was spent there. And I give extra points for Margot Robbie’s performance as Harley Quinn. I found her to be the most entertaining character, even if her character (along with all the others) was given an all-too-minimal backstory before bringing her together with the rest of the group. In the end, however, it was only a so-so film. I'd give it a 5 out of 10.

Movie Review Monday (Tuesday Edition)

I’ve had a packed schedule these past few weeks. And I’m missing the interactions that I typically have with many of you out there. I’ve even managed to get behind on my movie reviews, seeing that I forgot to post one yesterday. So I give you a special Tuesday edition. I hope my schedule frees up soon so that I can enjoy do more of the things I love, like more movie watching. Enjoy. :)

Man Vs. (2015) - In a remote part of Canada, the crew of a TV wilderness survival show have ambitious plans for the show’s star to venture out on his own, survive several days, and capture footage for their next season. I encountered this thriller/action film while lying sick on the couch and browsing through one of our streaming services. It caught my fancy, yet I’d never heard of it, so I wasn’t expecting much. I have to admit, I kinda liked it. It was fun watching Chris Diamantopoulos playing wilderness guy in his wilderness attire in the actual wilderness. As Doug Woods, he initially serves up a constant flow of survival tips and tricks for the TV audience. That is, until he discovers he’s not alone in the woods, at which point he has to rely on a more crucial set of survival skills. More fun popcorn fare if you’re in the mood for it. :) I'd give it a 7 out of 10.

Movie Review Monday

10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) - A young woman is involved in a car crash and later awakens in a bunker where a survivalist decides to keep her captive. The relatively small cast led by John Goodman collectively puts in a decent performance in this action/mystery/thriller. And the movie strikes the right pace early on, keeping the audience involved and wondering what is going to happen next as it eventually accelerates toward the climax. The film does employ some clichés from the thriller and action movie genres. But that is counterbalanced by the admirable creativity that goes into the overall plot. If you’re in the mood for some very entertaining popcorn fare, give this one a try. I'd give it an 8 out of 10.

Movie Review Monday

Alien Covenant (2017) - It’s 2104, and the spacecraft Covenant is bound toward remote Origae-6 with a small crew and two thousand human colonists. Unforeseen peril lies ahead. If you’re at all familiar with the Alien franchise, you know what sort of peril lies ahead. ;) This sequel to 2012’s Prometheus propels the franchise ever closer to the events that eventually transpire in the original Alien film. Unlike Prometheus, this film didn’t introduce an abundance of subtle and symbolic story elements. Instead, this film uses a more straightforward plot to bridge the viewer quite a bit forward in the overall Alien story arc. Similar to its predecessor, however, this film does contain some breathtaking landscapes and impressive special effects. As for the acting, Michael Fassbender and Katherine Waterston put in strong performances in the lead roles. The film does feel like it reuses several of the plot elements from others in the franchise to build its story. But it does well enough to create a very entertaining film, one that most Alien hardcore fans will undoubtedly want to see. I'd give it an 8 out of 10.

Hope everyone is having a nice Memorial Day weekend so far. We started ours with a morning hike through the Oak Cliff Nature Preserve.

Temperature was in the low 80's, but with 70% humidity, it felt like the high 80's. We broke quite a sweat by the end of our 2-mile hike.

As usual, the girls were little troopers, hoofing it the entire way. Below are the highlights. :)
