Movies and Genealogy

It has been cold and rainy here in Idaho Falls the last few days with overnight lows in the mid 30's and highs in the mid 50's so we haven't done much. We did get out to see a couple of movies, The Avengers and Men in Black 3. Our movie rating scale is based on our Netflix ratings; 5 - loved it, 4 - really liked it, 3 - liked it, 2 - did not like it but finished, and finally the dreaded 1 star - did not like it and did not finish it.

We really liked The Avengers, even more so than Men in Black 3.

The Avengers get together only when needed in an emergency. It was good to see the actors that have played some of the Marvel characters also appear in this movie and we must say they finally got someone that could play The Hulk, Mark Ruffalo. It was a fun time with a movie with lots of action so we give it 4 stars.

While Men in Black 3 was good at times it kind of dragged.

We liked all the characters but it could have been better. Josh Brolin did an uncanny job as the younger Agent K and was the highlight of the movie. With all time travel movies you must suspend belief as you enter the show. All in all we liked it and give it 3 stars.

We also have been taking advantage of the LDS Family History Center which is about 5 minutes from our park. We are making a lot of progress with finding our ancestors.

Till next time,

  1. We'll be there in about a week and a half. Any hope for better weather by then? We're going to stay at the fairgrounds in Blackfoot (I hope) for a couple of nights before heading up into Montana.

    1. You know what they say about the weather up here, just wait 5 minutes and it will change. Plus we believe you know how good weather forecasters are :-)

      That being said how does mid 70's sound, possibly sunshine on one of the days, or partly cloudy, or rain on the days mid week.
