GARAGE SALE MYSTERY



According to her son, Logan, Jennifer Shannon is a garage-sale-diva.

Jennifer is an expert at finding the hidden treasures others seem to consider trash.

In this Hallmark Mystery (unbeknownst to me as a Hallmark Movie when it was picked up at the library), Jennifer stumbles upon a burglary ring that seems to pick its clientele from visiting yard sales in richer neighborhoods.

The plot thickens when a dead body is found.

I enjoyed it.

THIRD ROCK FROM THE SUN

THIRD ROCK FROM THE SUN



3rd Rock from the Sun is an American sitcom about extraterrestrials on a mission to discover more about human beings.

Dick Solomon (John Lithgrow) is their fearless leader. Dick is a physics professor at a very low-achieving university.

Sally Solomon (Kristen Johnston) is the enforcer of the expedition. Sally is a gorgeous blonde usually unaware of her womanly wiles.

Harry Solomon (French Stewart) is the ‘transmitter’ for the crew. He is the eccentric brother to Sally and Dick.

Tommy Solomon (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is the researcher. Tommy is the teenage son of the family.

Each episode investigates a new revelation about human interactions. The show is usually very funny, but the language can be very course (especially when you consider it was produced in the late 1990s).

JOHN WICK (2)



I was not disappointed!

Another winner in my book!

John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is called from retirement to make good on a past promise.

Again, the gun-play was off-the-charts. (I suspect if you had a nickel for every bullet fired, you could eat steak dinners for a month!)

I will restate my previous recommendation…

If you enjoy fast action movies- and very little morbid blood scenes- you will enjoy this movie!!!

I can’t wait to see John Wick 3.

If you enjoy gun-play in movies… this is the movie for you. (Believe it or not, there are websites devoted to John Wicks shooting accuracy!)

John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is an ex-hit names (nicknamed The Boogeyman) who has come out of retirement to set-the-score right on the killing of his dog by a mobster’s delinquent youngest son.

If you enjoy fast action movies- and very little morbid blood scenes- you will enjoy this movie!!!

I can’t wait to see John Wick 2.

THE AVENGERS: ENDGAME

(No Spoilers)



According to all film critics and even the movie goers (often they do not agree) THE AVENGERS; ENDGAME is MARVEL at its finest hour.

I am not an avid, rabid fan of The Avengers, but I have enjoyed most of their movies.

I can name Captain America, The Iron Man, and Spiderman as MARVEL characters. Maybe, Ant-Man and Thor are as well. That’s it for my knowledge base.

I have never even seen an Avengers’ movie in a true theater.

This will be the first.

In the next day or so… I hope I am not disappointed.

THE VICTIMS OF HAVEN, MAINE

THE VICTIMS OF HAVEN, MAINE



HAVEN (originally on SyFy- now on NETFLIX) is a supernatural drama based on the Stephen King novel, The Colorado Kid.

Haven, a small town in Maine, is a cursed town. Many of its residents are troubled.

In the town of Haven, troubled means that they can do supernatural things. These troubled are usually seen as cursed by the normal folk of Haven.

The troubled have afflictions ranging from the ability to be loved by machines, to their personal hatreds being expressed a neighboring forested area, to being wendigoes, to being a bullet magnet.

The town’s police force tries to ease the troubled’s afflictions while at the same time protecting the normal residents from the disasters inherently caused by the afflictions.

As you watch the show, you are never sure if the victims are the regular towns folk or the afflicted?

Usually, I don’t enjoy random SyFy shows, but –possibly because if the Stephen King mindset- this one is a great show.

FIGHTING WITH MY FAMILY

fighting-with-696x392

FIGHTING WITH THE FAMILY is a surprisingly good movie about a young girl’s rise to fame in the WWE. It is a loosely-based true story.

Zak and Saraya Bevis are two youngsters in Norwich, England (2000).

Rick and Julia Bevis (their parents) run a small-time wrestling group in England and encourage their children to wrestle.

By the time Zak and Saraya are eighteen, the parents are in constant communication with the WWE seeking tryouts for their kids.

Both of the children are offered tryouts, but only Saraya is accepted into NXT.

The language is a little course at times, but the life-lessons of successes and failures and second tries is well worth the theater visit.
