Currently in Goodyear AZ (Low 84 Breezy High 106) 

With all the heat we have a lot of indoor activities. We recently saw 'San Andreas'.

Starring Dwayne Johnson as a rescue team leader this is an action packed disaster movie that we used to watch. The plot is that he is trying to save his wife and daughter from a series of major earthquakes along the San Andreas Fault. 

We really liked this movie and recommend it. Certainly not an Academy Award winner but incredible special effects and great acting by Dwayne Johnson, Carla Gugino, Alexandra Daddario and the always great Paul Giamatti. 'The Rock' has come a long way. A lot of movies with a lot of action the scenes can drag on and you are like, just kill the guy, but in this movie we never got that feeling.

Next we saw 'Aloha' starring Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone and the never disappointing Rachel McAdams among others..

Another not an Academy Award winner but a fun movie nonetheless. Bradley Cooper plays a military contractor on assignment in Hawaii. He is guided by an Air Force Captain played by Emma Stone. While there he meets up with an old girlfriend played by Rachel McAdams. A fun couple of hours for sure.

Finally, we just saw 'Jurassic World'.

Chris Pratt is everywhere now it seems, we remember him as the brother on the old TV show 'Everwood'. There is a lot of action in this movie, a new dinosaur along with some recurring ones from the three previous movies. Dinosaurs are penned in, dinosaurs get loose, ah you know the plot. Lots of action and an entertaining 2 hours.

Being inside and cool is pretty important right now in the valley of the sun where the 110s are normal.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo

  1. We're still checking out movies at the library. We watched 8 of them this week and we'll head back over today to check out some more. However, I did tell Jim that I want to see San Adreas on the big screen. I still remember Earthquake and Towering Inferno. I bet the special effects are really good.
