As you can guess, the title is the theme of this movie, and it delivers. While predictable to some extent, the journey is not–a beautiful woman out for a fun filled week with her boyfriend is transformed into a mean, mean, vegeance machine. The imagery and action are top notch. And LOTS of blood. No female nudity, some male, suggestive sex, but no actual sex.
Megan found a beautiful spot for the ceremony, in of all places, Farmville. But, it was a good choice–the setting was on a small lake, with a deck on the water for the wedding.
Megan was led down the aisle by her two brothers, John and Mason. Her nephew, Tristan, was the ring bearer. Amelia was the backup ring bearer, but Tristan performed flawlessly.
Dylan’s final game was quite an achievement–they beat the same team that destroyed them in the previous matchup. Well, the coach had a game plan for the rematch–a full court press the entire game. And it worked–the other team was so flustered, they started making turnovers. It was very gratifying to see this plan unfold–and Dylan contributed two points to his team’s victory.
I was talking to one of my cousins the other day about traveling to Spain, where she lives. I wanted to refer her to one of my blog posts about visiting Spain, when I realized I hadn’t posted it–for 19 years. Fortunately, I still had my written notes, so I quickly posted it. Then, I started wondering–if I wanted to browse all the posts I made in a certain year, in this case, 1999, I wouldn’t find it, because for one: the native WordPress search doesn’t search by metadata; and two, I had no field to search for the event date. So, even if I could search by metadata, a search for 1999 wouldn’t pick it up, because I posted in in 2018.
I haven’t read the book yet, but Kayela and I went to his book signing in DC last night. In addition to giving us a preview of where humanity is headed, it turns out that Kaku is a very good speaker. He never faltered, never paused (except dramatically), and threw in a good bit of humor. Especially at the end, when a young student asked him if he “made it all up.” Which, he admitted, he did, to a certain extent. His projections were made from interviewing 300 scientists. But, it still got a good laugh.
The picture on the left is a good summary of our trip to Spain–the flowers overflowing the walls of our condo accentuate the beauty of this country; the Sierra Nevada Mountains, the El Tajo Gorge, the flamenco dancers, the White Cities, and the Matador culture, just to name a few.
Did you ever think one of your babysitters was evil? Well, this movie takes it to a whole new level. If you like black comedy, you’ll love this one. It’s right up there with “Tucker and Dale vs. Evil.”
Ashley is baby sitting a 12 year old boy when someone breaks in. A baby sitter normally needs protection from an intruder, right? But what if the kid she’s protecting doesn’t need protection? What if that kid is hiding a secret that makes things worse?
This all adds up to a horrendous night for Ashley. Not only does she have trouble figuring out what’s really going on, she appears to have to defend herself from the very person she’s trying to protect.
Ashley is resourceful though, and fights off the initial attack. What happens next though, will keep you guessing. This movie is not your typical damsel in distress/slasher/tragedy story–it’s very cleverly done, and we really enjoyed it.
Agatha is childless. But, she’s a mother to several babies. What’s wrong with this picture? Nothing, as far as Agatha is concerned–she has babies vicariously. Even to the point of faking pregnancy and fooling coworkers, her mom, and her husband.
How she pulls this off is amazing to listen to. And it takes a while to build up to the meat of the story, but once the story solidifies, it gets even more complicated, and one of Agatha’s victims unwittingly deepens her own fall into a living hell.
We left around noon, and 24 hours later, this was our view. Transportation from the Cancun airport is pretty much a must–you can wade through the vendors as you exit the airport, but you’re going to end up paying the same price as a transport service, so you might as well do it in style. They’ll be waiting for you with your name on a sign, and with Canada Transfers, you can even arrange for a cold beer to be waiting. It was around $53 US round trip, to be personally chauffeured to your hotel.
