Kingsman: The Golden Circle

On this episode, Alicia and I check out the second installment of The Kingsman: The Golden Circle.  We enjoyed the first one so much as well as a lot of other people that they made second one.   Previews show how exciting this one was going to be so we prepared for another thrill ride.

With their headquarters destroyed and the world held hostage, members of Kingsman find new allies when they discover a spy organization in the United States known as Statesman. In an adventure that tests their strength and wits, the elite secret agents from both sides of the pond band together to battle a ruthless enemy and save the day, something that's becoming a bit of a habit for Eggsy.

Oak Creek Syrah Review

Oak Creek Syrah is dark colored, full bodied, peppery and dense. Layered with spicy fruit and streaked with mineral undertones. This is a perfect example of a traditional varietal that has found its home in Arizona and is here to stay. Red meat and Italian food will only be enhanced by this rich and full red.

Atomic Blonde

Sensual and savage, Lorraine Broughton is the most elite spy in MI6, an agent who's willing to use all of her lethal skills to stay alive during an impossible mission. With the Berlin Wall about to fall, she travels into the heart of the city to retrieve a priceless dossier and take down a ruthless espionage ring. Once there, she teams up with an embedded station chief to navigate her way through the deadliest game of spies.  It is based on a graphic novel by Antony Johnston and Sam Hart called The Coldest City

Alicia and I went to this movie ready for some kick ass spy stuff and really trying see what this movie was all about.  We saw some pretty good major actors in this movie along with Charlize Theron that help her along her trip to find the proverbial spy list with all the agents in the whole wide world.

Dunkirk Movie Review

In May 1940, Germany advanced into France, trapping Allied troops on the beaches of Dunkirk. Under air and ground cover from British and French forces, troops were slowly and methodically evacuated from the beach using every serviceable naval and civilian vessel that could be found. At the end of this heroic mission, 330,000 French, British, Belgian and Dutch soldiers were safely evacuated.

If you don't know Christopher Nolan is one of my favorite directors.  His vision and story tellingability has fascinated me since "memento".  But proceeded from there with the Batman trilogy, inception", Intersteller, the Prestige and Insomnia the sleeper of the group.  I'm not a big fan of war movies but this was something I knew I would enjoy since Nolan had his hands on it.  He wrote the script as well.
