Two Guns (2013): Denzel Washington, Mark Wahlberg, Paula Patton, Edward James Olmos

Take two top movie stars Mark Wahlberg as Michael "Stig" Stigman and award winning Denzel Washington as Robert "Bobby" Trench to devise a witty, semi violent (not all the bloody gore of some violent films) smartly developed with a twisted plot that is somewhat comical yet surprisingly works.  Two Guns, is the perfect happy summer movie, similar to summer books that are read at the beach for pleasure.  In other words, this isn't a film that is a work of art destined for an Oscar or a film preaching to the choir about social injustices.  Instead this action packed film combined with witty banter by these two dynamo's that is refreshingly pure entertainment.

Wahlberg, Stig and Washington, Bobby, are tough jock-like criminals or so the audience believes on a mission to infiltrate a drug cartel.  They overtake a bank that holds Mexican drug kingpin Papi Greco's (Edward James Olmos) money only to find much more than they bargained for.  Washington is with the DEA and Walhberg is with the Naval Intelligence though neither knew about each others identity.  After unveiling each others cover they realize they have been set up. Without, giving away what is really going on, the games begin after the money is stolen.   Another famous actor, slips into the film with a swagger and cowboy hat who also wants a piece of the money tree.  Two criminals, drug cartel kingpin, big business and a cowboy leads to shoot outs, car chases and a multitude of crazy entanglements that leave one on the edge of a seat.   Overall, a summer fling film with Wahlberg at his comic best and Washington shining brilliantly in his first comedic breakout role.   Let's just say, Two Guns, is one film not to missed during the dog-days of summer.  Enjoy the air conditioning, popcorn and humor.  Definite must see.

Books to Read - February 2021

  Read, Read, Read "We read to know we are not alone." C.S. Lewis Do you love to read? I do.  In fact, I always have a book on deck for my pleasure.  I wake up in the morning and carry my favorite novel downstairs.  It is how I start and end my day.  I am always reading.  It is my quintessential past time.  What do I like about the novels I chose?   I enjoy historical fiction with tales about the human condition.  Or I love stories told in a new place that I have never visited. Afterwards, I want to travel there and sink into the surroundings.  If I enjoy an author, I will read ALL  his or her books.  I tend to read books where the woman is the lead character.   I enjoy the strife, angst, and messiness of the characters' lives and how they prevail with strength, wisdom and love.  The struggle reminds me of the complexity of life and the beauty all in one snapshot.   Additionally, authors who share human drama, vivid details of the landscape and scenery plus poured their h

Happy Valentines Day 2021

  Love is in the Air!!!  Or is it Snow? "Where there is love there is life." Mahatma Gandi What Does Valentine's Day Mean to You?  It is snowing hard here in the Pacific Northwest.  We have eight inches, and it is still swirling down and covering everything.  The beauty of snow changing the landscape is a sight to behold.  Ever since I was a child, I have loved the snow.  We used to play endlessly in the streets building snowmen, having snowball fights, making snow angels, sledding and creating igloos. We did not go inside until we were cold, wet, and hungry.  We were always in the elements playing with friends or family members. The days of being a child without a care in the world are indeed cherished.  Today, I love the sound of kids playing in the snow.  It is wonderous.   Of course, Valentines Day 2021 for me is a winter wonderland.  Hopefully, we will continue to have power.  It remains to be seen.  Mother nature moves at its own pace and can never be accurately pr

Winter Fashion 2021

  The Chilly Artic "Good clothing is a passport to happiness." Yves Saint Laurent Yves St. Laurent Fashion Exhibit - Seattle Art Museum (2016) The winter of 2021 has been brutally cold across the country.  One for the ages. With snowstorms, bitter winds and ice, the frigid temperatures have seeped into everyone's bones.  Even places slated to be warm in February tend to be on the cooler side of the temperature gage.  Though, I must note that temps are slowly getting warmer in the sun infused states.  Beyond the weather, nerves remain flared as people struggle to get the vaccine, keep safe and bundled up all in one sweep.  The stress is at an all-time high.  It seems to me; we need to sit back and figure out how to be helpful to one another.  To be positive and appreciative for family and friends during these trying moments. We are closer to having everyone vaccinated and getting back to a semi-normal life.  In the meantime, we must be patient and diligent awhile longer. 

Pops of Color

  Spring is Coming Pixabay Photo - No Attribution Required "Colors are the smiles of nature." Leigh Hunt I think the time has come to sport bright colors and launch ourselves into Spring 2021.  Images of orange, pink, red, yellow and lime greens come to mind.  March is around the corner and soon the flowers will begin to open, blue skies may appear, and a fresh new world is about to burst forth.  I also get the strong sense that people are beginning to feel confident and resuming some of their favorite activities.  For instance, where I play tennis masked, several of my friends have recently come back.  Seeing their twinkling eyes and masked faces brings joy to my heart.
