November Man is very good. Interesting suspenseful story, couple unexpected twists, fine performances, gory, plethora of action.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For 3D is very good albeit very dark, violent, gory, and strange. Quality cast, top effects, fine performances.
If you read my post about the Samsung Tab Pro 8.4, you know I was impressed with the Tab Pro 8.4. The Tab S 8.4 improves on an already impressive tablet. As much as I liked the Pro’s screen, the change to a SuperAMOLED screen with the Tab S is a dazzling improvement. The colors jump out at you, and text is super crisp. I have always been a fan of SuperAMOLED screens.
The Tab Pro S is thin, light, fast, well built, and dare I say, elegant. Watching videos, viewing picture albums, web surfing, eBook reading, and every other task I have tried is a joy on this device. Even updating my HanDBase databases is an enhanced experience with the SuperAMOLED screen. Battery life has exceeded the range I need for daily activity. I have not tested “the absolute drain to death” time since I charge all my devices nightly.
You see many reviews which criticize Samsung’s additions to the interface. I respect their opinions, and do use a “pure Android” Nexus as well; however, I like the TouchWiz enhancements. I frequently use Multi-window.
If you are in the market for a premium tablet in the 8 inch screen size space, the Samsung Tab S 8.4 is an excellent choice. I like the WiFi version so much, I may order the 4G version as well when it is released.
The Expendables 3 is good. Constant action, quality effects, appropriate performances, interesting story, a bit too long.
Calvary is excellent. Dark, intense Irish comedy/drama, stunning cinematography, exciting story, top performances, Gleeson outstanding.
In 2010 / 2011, I successfully lost 165 pounds which exceeded my goal of loosing 150 pounds. For about 8 months or so, I remained in control at my new, trimmer weight. I felt good, looked good, and was more active than before loosing the weight.
For reasons still unknown to me, I totally lost focus, and control of my weight in the latter half of 2012, and all of 2013. Although I stopped the major weight gain in 2014, I have not experienced any significant weight loss in 2014; I am like a yo-yo, loose 5 pounds, gain the 5 pounds back, and then repeat. Bottom line is – since the summer of 2013, I have weighed between 80 and 100 pounds more than I did in August 2011 when I completed my successful 165 pound loss.
I am glad I have finally “seen the light”, and am determined to shred all the weight I gained back. Every morning at weigh-in, I give myself the metaphorical kick in the butt exasperated that I allowed myself to gain back all that weight. I am ecstatic that I regained my weight focus before I reattached all 165 pounds back to my body; however, I am very unhappy that I allowed myself to gain back as much weight as I did.
Magic in the Moonlight is enjoyable. Quality cast, fine performances, top cinematography, laughs, fine ending, some great old cars.
