  • “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone” Movie Review

    (Surprisingly good, very funny) – – Nothing I had seen leading up to watching the movie (the trailer, commercials, or pictures) did justice to the actual movie.  What looked like a totally stupid movie in the marketing campaign, actually turned out to be a sweet, funny, movie about real life ups and downs.  Fire the […]

    “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” Movie Review

    The Cullens have to leave Forks because the senior Cullen is looking 10 years younger than his age….and people at the hospital are starting to notice.

  • “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” Movie Review

    (Excellent Coming of Age Movie) – – Teenage drinking, drugging, and then driving makes me cringe.  Arrrghh….

    George Strait Rides Away at Sacramento, CA

    – We have seen the King of Country music in concert over 20 times out here in Northern California.  This is his farewell “The Cowboy Rides Away” tour. So sad, but, we are glad that we were able to go to his concerts so many times. Mini Review: George Strait is tired.  Most of the […]

  • “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters” Movie Review

    “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters” Movie Review

    (Exciting, Funny, Gory) – – Bodies blow up, people are dismembered, heads are squished and blown off:  blood and gore (albeit not awfully graphic) flow as do the wisecracks and action.  “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters” is definitely NOT for kids.  It is R rated for a reason (including the f-words which are used very effectively). One […]

    “Parker” Movie Review

    (Burglary, Bullets, Blood, Bodies) – – Jason Statham (as Parker) is cool as ice and tough as nails as a bad guy with morals.  If you do what you say are are going to do, you are fine, if you don’t……you are dead. After stealing $1 million from the Ohio State Fair, the bad guys […]
