Movie Review: Yesterday


We received a Blu-Ray copy of the movie Yesterday for free to watch and review. Opinions are our own.

Allison and I watched the movie Yesterday for a date night movie night. This is a romantic comedy with an interesting premise. Our main character, Jack gets into an accident at the same time as a global blackout and when he wakes up he realizes that he is the only person who remembers The Beatles. Jack is a singer and songwriter. He takes his knowledge of The Beatles and becomes the greatest singer in the world. However, he soon realizes that this was not what he wanted after all.

The movie was pretty funny and I loved the moments where Jack searched for The Beatles online and there were other strange changes as well. Jack also has a manager in his friend Ellie. As things continue to play out he realizes that he truly loves her but has to figure out how to keep the trappings of fame from changing him completely. There are also some fun performances by Kate McKinnon and Ed Sheeran.

If you love The Beatles then you are going to be in for a treat in this movie. I loved watching it, I thought it was pretty clever and fun. Take a look at the trailer below to get an idea of the movie.p>

You can find even more about the movie below. There are plenty of great extras as well including several of the songs being sung by Hamish Patel who plays Jack. He does an excellent job with the songs. Continue reading Movie Review: Yesterday

Review: The Secret Life of Pets 2

We received a copy of the Secret Life of Pets 2 on Blu-ray. Opinions are our own.

One of my favorite actors, comedians, performers right now is Patton Oswalt and with him taking over the role of Max in The Secret Life of Pets 2 I am thrilled. I like what he has done with the character of Max and I can so relate. I may not look it on the outside but on the inside I am all sorts of anxious of anything happening to my kids. Max becomes super over protective once Liam arrives. Liam is the son of Max’s owner, Katie. She gets married and has a kid in this movie and it is super quick that Liam grows into a toddler. Max, at first doesn’t care for kids but Liam is HIS kid and so he is super protective of Liam. He gets so anxious that he begins scratching at his neck over and over, enough to get fitted with a cone of shame. However, when Max goes to the farm and meets an alpha dog, Rooster be learns to let go a bit and become stronger in the end.

We watched the movie together and really enjoyed it. Here is a little featurette with Patton Oswalt about playing Max.
