Currently in Goodyear AZ (Low 55 Mostly Sunny and Windy High 82) 

As the weather gets hotter here in the Valley of the Sun we will see more movies as a main form of our entertainment. We recently saw the movies "Cinderella" and "Kingsman: The Secret Service", one we can recommend and one we cannot.

Cinderella is a retelling of the classic tale.

Kind of like the movie "Titanic" where you know what is going to happen but still a very good movie. Lilly James did a great job as Ella, aka Cinderella, and Cate Blanchett is good in everything she does. This is the movie we recommend.

We just saw "Kingsman: The Secret Service" yesterday.

Truth be told we still aren't sure about this movie except to say with all that uncertainty we don't recommend it. The Kingsman are a secret intelligence service that only recruits a new member when one dies. The movie starts out OK with a semi-comic semi-serious take on training for the service with a little silliness thrown in. Then it is like another director took over about half way as it cranks up the violence, sexual content and silliness to an absurd level. We weren't ready to get up and walk out but this movie came as close to that as any have for a long time.

Movies to see in the near future are: "Woman in Gold", "Insurgent" and "The Longest Ride" all out now. Those seem interesting but we are really looking forward to the Marvel movies coming out later, especially the next Avengers on May 1st.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo

  1. You just might win the wise-prize for staying put, and movies are a good way to stay cool! We sit in Alamogordo watching the weather (mainly wind) as we prepare to move on east....! Stay cool!
