Wink and A Nod AND GEOSTORM


Today's Wink and A Nod Recipient is Christine at Christine's Blog.Christine is from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. She is married with adult children and is currently a homemaker.  On her blog you may find paintings, restaurants visited and general reflections on life.

Wink, wink, Christine.

So many blogs. So little time.


And......



I haven't seen much hype on this movie, but the HH and I saw it and enjoined it immensely. Gerald Butler as always does an awesome job of playing the flawed hero. Considering the back to back natural disasters we've been having recently, it did have me squirming in my chair a bit. I'd give it a five out of five. (Five and a half if the popcorn's good;)
Highly Recommended

  5. It didn't really get much hype, sounds like one to turn ones brain off and enjoy though.

    2. It didn't get much hype. Seems like much less than other movies of its genre. Let me know what you think if you see it.

  6. Critics didn't like it, and I think the studio knew it wouldn't do great, so there wasn't much hype. I won't catch it until video, but I do enjoy a good disaster movie.

    1. I'm really surprised about the critics response. I think it's the best of its genre we've seen.

  7. I checked out Christine’s blog and it is a fun one. Always nice when you showcase someone. I have seen the trailers but will wait for video which is probably a disservice due to the special effects.

    1. Thanks for going over to Christine's. I'm sure she appreciated it.
      The special effects are amazing in Geo, but I think you'll still enjoy it on video.

  10. I visited Christine's blog and loved the poppy from the painting party. The trailer for Geostorm had me squirming. I'm not sure I'm up to the whole movie!
