summer movies 4

"Logan Lucky"  Fun Fun Fun A summer heist movie like Ocean's 11 and by the same director. Killer cast and great cameos, several NASCAR drivers make fun appearances. It is the tale of a laid off redneck that robs the Charolette Motor Speedway during the CocaCola 600. Danial Craig (007) steals the show.

Excellent summer flick. Four stars, 2017 Movie 30

"Hitman's BodyGuard"  Another fun movie but R rated for extreme profanity and bloodshed.  But it has Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L Jackson so you should not be surprised. Crazy car chases and witty dialogue.  3 stars; 2017 Movie 31

Trump 2

Garrison Keillor wrote:

"So. We have a vulgar, unstable yoyo with a toxic ego and an attention deficit problem in the White House, and now we can see that government by Twitter is like trying to steer a ship by firing a pistil at the waves, not really useful, but what does it add up to? Not that much if you ask me, which you didn't, but I'll say it anyway."

Trump 1

I have tried to support our President. I wanted to support our President. I do acknowledge that he is my President.

I just wished he thought about anyone other than himself. While I am wishing:

I wish he was intelligent.
I wish he knew History.
I wish he knew how Government works.
I wish he knew how Health Care works.
I wish he knew............. 
This is endless!

Summer Movies 3

Dunkirk:  This is one of those movies that I can't use the word: Enjoy.  I appreciated it. I thought it was very well done. I thought it captured World War 2 in a thoughtful and real way.  It is a great depiction of History as it told one of the most important events in British History.  Witness it for the lesson it is.  I give it ****1/2 stars.  2017 Movie 29

Atomic Blonde:  007 becomes M16, a lady spy with much attitude. Charlize Theron plays it well. Great summer action movie.

I give it ***1/2 stars, 29017 movie 28

Spiderman Homecoming:  Like it much more than I planned to.  Super-hero movies work better with humor. This had humor.  I give it ***1/2 stars  2017 Movie 27

Dispicable Me 3  I like the Minions. I like taking the grandkids to a funny movie. A good day spent.
I give it ***stars. 2017 Movie 26
