Image
Synopsis: Living alone with her widowed mother, 16-year-old Enola Holmes barely knows her famous brother, Sherlock, but could easily match his intelligence. When Enola wakes one morning to find her mother missing, she is determined to figure out what happened. However, her oldest brother, Mycroft, unhappy with the way she has been raised, wants to send her to a finishing school instead. She runs away to London dressed as a boy and, along the way, she meets a young viscount and ultimately has to help prevent his murder. Who's in it? The movie stars Millie Bobby Brown , Henry Cavill , Sam Claflin , Louis Patridge and Helen Bonham Carter . Review: When I first saw previews for this movie on Netflix, I was both intrigued and a bit cautious. I have enjoyed Sherlock Holmes' books and some movies but not all films are the same, especially those that don't necessarily plan to stick to the original canon. In other words, this movie looked interesting in the previews but also had

Movie Review: Itsy Bitsy (2019)

Image
Synopsis: Still piecing her life back together after the accidental death of her son, Kara, a private nurse and single mother, moves to the country with her two kids to take care of an elderly man who has spent his life collecting artifacts from around the world. When one of her client's artifacts is smashed by an intruder, it releases a large killer spider that puts her and her children at risk. Who's in it? The movie stars Bruce Davison , Elizabeth Roberts , Denise Crosby , Arman Darbo and Chloe Perrin . Review: I was looking for some horror movies to watch for my wife and, figuring you can't go wrong with giant spiders, added this one to our library. We had an opportunity to finally watch it last night and my opinion of it was a bit mixed. I think one of my biggest complaints about this film is the same one I have with a lot of horror films, it takes way too long to get going. Roughly three-quarters of this film seemed to focus on Kara (Roberts), her depression, her

Movie Review: The Three Musketeers (2011)

Image
Synopsis: D'Artagnan, the hot-headed son of a former Musketeer, travels to Paris to follow in his father's footsteps. When he arrives, he learns the Musketeers no longer exist and, eventually, he and three former Musketeers, Athos, Aramis and Porthos, must stop a plot to start a war with England. Who's in it? The movie stars Logan Lerman , Matthew MacFayden , Milla Jovovich , Orlando Bloom , Gabriella Wilde and Christoph Waltz. Review: When this movie came out in 2011, I decided not to watch it because, in my opinion, if you've seen one Three Musketeers movie, you've seen them all. However, after seeing a YouTube video of one of the fight scenes, I figured I would give the film a try and watched it last night and early this morning. As it turns out, I was right, if you've seen one, you've seen all of them. I'm not saying there weren't some memorable scenes from this film. Some of the fight scenes, for example, were pretty fun to watch and, to be

I Am Now Fully Vaccinated

  I just got my second dose of the Moderna vaccine a little while ago. So far, so good. This was honestly a tough decision for me. I'm not really an anti-vaxxer but, since I don't get sick too often, I've always been skeptical of things like the flu vaccine, etc. And, there was a big part of me that was tempted to just ride out this current storm as well because I figured, even if I did catch COVID, there was a good chance it wouldn't affect me that much. There were a couple things that ultimately influenced my decision. The first was the half dozen or so nurses I know that have spent the last year on the front lines. Frankly, their horror stories scared me, not so much because I thought I would end up on a ventilator as much as the thought of my wife or one of my kids ending up on a ventilator because they caught it from me. The other thing was I really would like things to start getting back to normal. My oldest daughter graduates next year. I would like to see her wa
