    Rambo: Last Blood

    ★★★½

    Sly Stallone was my “go to” actor while growing up and in high school/college. I loved the Rambo movies and was really looking forward to Last Blood. This movie had more “story” to it and, as such, moved a bit slowly at the beginning. Rambo is living with his niece and her grandma somewhere in Arizona. When his niece goes missing in Mexico Uncle ‘Bo moves in to find her and take care of those responsible.

    ★★★★

    An interesting look into the “near” future and what our space exploration has led to. I enjoyed this movie. While it was slow in parts, it was thought-provoking while dealing with a grown astronaut/son who has the opportunity to go on a space mission to find his father who may or may not still be alive. My son said he hasn’t seen a “space” movie that he hasn’t liked and I must say I agree with him. We watched in IMAX, and was well worth it with stunning space visuals throughout.

    ★★★★½

    This was a really fun movie. I remember wanting to see it in theatres and never made it. Watched it on Hulu.

    I'm a sucker for a coming of age movie and this one delivered on the evolution of a troubled young boy who responds to a little attention.

    Taika Waititi is great at directing movies that have a touch of heart and subtle humor throughout. What could have been a movie with a couple of unlikable characters turned out…

    The Conjuring 2

    ★★★★

    Solid Horror movie. A number of spots that cause you to jump out of your seats. Wan is a master of this genre. Not gory; good plot; overall highly recommended.
