Son of Kong

 I watched “Son of Kong” on Svengoolie tonight.  They travel back to Skull Island looking for treasure where they find little Kong. The Sven additives to the movie help it along.  I would give it 1.75 out of 5.

Conan the Barbarian

I just watched the 2011 re-imagining of Conan the Barbarian. I haven’t seen the 1982 original since the 80’s so I can’t really compare. This one was very good, lots of excitement, pretty non-stop action. I would give it a solid 3.5 of 5 stars.

  • Me,  when Robert says we can’t get something, needed by the pharmacy, because we’re moving into a new building soon! 
  • Kelly, when a teacher calls work and the first word is “Graham”
