Predators Movie Review

Monday, July 19th, 2010

Fun: 7
Action: 8
Drama: 4
SF: 6
Fantasy: 4
Sex: 5
Violence: 9
Effects: 7
Other: 7* – see review below

Scores range from 1 (kill me before I see it) to 10 (defining movie of this element). I saw this movie on the regular flat screen with a good friend, late at night.

Overall: A worthy sequel to the 1987 surprise hit movie. Good script, intelligently directed, with talented actors who looked like they really got to sink their teeth into their parts. Best of all, it ignores the regurgitated pea soup Hollywood put out with those moronic AvP crossovers.

They could have easily cut the number of humans in this film to give us more story, rather than having to do exposition on the extra trophies… I mean, characters. I think this movie suffered from the “too many characters” problem that action-adventure films frequently have.

Getting Back in the Saddle

We here at Casa del Pookah…

Thank you

Have been preoccupied by a number of Life’s Dramas. In no particular order:

  • Death of a beloved pet
  • Car wrecks among ourselves and close family
  • Day-jobs that occasionally spill over into nights and weekends
  • Preventing dead oak trees from falling on our pile of rocks
  • Feeding Pookah the delicious new food that helps keep Pookah in trim shape… after that… debacle… involving “Pudgins”
  • Replacing certain articles that “mysteriously” shredded themselves

And other sundries besides.

Well, we’re back with updates coming.

Pookah was here. Pookah has always been here. Worship me.

The plan is (and has been) to get ahead on posts, and have them scheduled to publish. Comments are supposed to generate an alert – unless they hit the spam filters.

We’ll see how it goes this time :)

And humans claim that felines are easily distracted. Hmph!

Life of Pookah

Blog – Life of Pookah

Pookah is my younger cat. This blog is named after her because her life was profoundly affected by how I and my S.O. live our lives. Pookah is living, breathing proof of how one family’s decisions can strongly affect the lives of others. Pookah will give her input on this blog

You’re not petting me enough

For as long as she wants to. Case in point.

Scritch chin.

Sigh.
