Chinese Movies by Sherry Ellis
This is a typical Jackie Chan movie. Full of martial arts action and slapstick comedy. Perfect for Jackie Chan enthusiasts.
Here’s what it’s about: The all-powerful Monkey King roamed freely between Heaven and Earth. But he ticked off some gods. Not a good thing! The angry gods locked him up in an ice cage deep in the mountains where he stayed for 500 years. He’d probably still be there if it hadn’t been for the monster who attacked a nearby village. A child flees the village and goes into the mountains where he stumbles upon the furry beast. The boy releases the Monkey King, who saves the village from the scary monster.
Kids will like this film for the cool animation. Parents will probably chuckle at some of the humor. A good movie for the whole family.

Sicario: Day of the Soldado Review
The movie was good although not as good as the first one. It missed having Emily Blunt in it.
The premise was to stop terrorists from coming across the Mexican border by starting a Cartel war. That gets a bit lost along the way during the kidnapping and attempted return of a Cartel’s daughter. That issue’s never resolved, but maybe that was the point of the film.
Josh Brolin’s character is just ruthless. Benicio Del Toro’s character meanwhile becomes more human along the way.
The cinematography is amazing and it’s well-shot and directed. The music is outstanding, setting a dark mood so effectively.
A good action thriller – recommended.

This month’s challenge - Déjà vu or Voodoo. And I have an entry! It even rhymes...
A blogger buddy sent Mini-Alex to me.
But what if he’s more than he seems to be?
A voodoo doll with an evil spell.
Throw him outside and it's flowers I smell.
Put him in the oven and I smell like roast duck.
If Pat Hatt’s Cat buries him, I'm really out of luck.
Stick him in the dryer and I begin to tumble.
Hit him with a hammer and I begin to crumble.
Carve him like a turkey and I get cut.
Oh how can I break out of this terrible rut?
So I gave Mini-Alex to my wife and she watches him so.
And if she accidentally sits on him, it's not a bad way to go!
