Getaway – 3 stars

Friday, August 30th, 2013

Getaway is OK.  I enjoy car chases, and love Shelby Mustangs; however, it got boring after the 15th vehicle was destroyed.  Nice ending.

Closed Circuit – 4 stars

Closed Circuit is very good.  Interestiing story, suspenseful, intriguing, fine performances, a bit political, but many movies are today.

Got to get my weight under control again.

Friday, August 23rd, 2013

My weight loss progress this summer has been as erratic as the Boston weather has been most of 2013. I loose a few pounds, gain it back along with a few extra pounds, and then repeat the cycle again, and again.
