Past DVD Desserts

May 13, 2016 ~ So, I didn’t know that this was a Marvel Comic Avengers movie, but it is.  AND it’s also considered an X-Men movie too, I guess.  Dale and I saw this at the theater a while back, and we just received the DVD/Digital Copy/Blu-ray in the mail.  Soooooo inappropriate, but soooooo funny.  I haven’t quite figured out if he’s bad or good or what.  Ryan Reynold’s performance is reminiscent of Jim Carrey in the “The Mask” as he’s very campy and seems to have a lot of the same voice inflections and physical moves.  But don’t let that discourage you!  Hey, I did like “The Mask.”   This is definitely one to watch if you didn’t catch it in the theater, BUT this is one Marvel Comic movie not for children!!  

May 30, 2015 ~ The "Homesman" movie was in my last Netflix batch of DVDs. I've always been a big fan of Tommy Lee Jones, and the synopsis of this film seemed intriguing. At first it drew me in and I love seeing how people lived in the "olden days." As the movie passed, there were some serious changes to the plot that I wasn't too sure about.. Without spoiling it, I was a bit annoyed. All in all, it was a good story. Well, because I like Tommy Lee Jones so much. Ha! It's based on a novel and TLJ directed it and wrote the screenplay. Hats off to him, but I don't believe I'll be watching this one again.
