Is it summer?

Nice day today, even if it was a little humid. Played a little Putt-Putt with my youngest. We need a little practice, neither one of us broke par today. Hmm. I didn’t have my stealth putter either. That may have been the difference.

Saw the A-Team today, so I will give you the rundown.

If you liked the TV show, you should like this movie. I liked the fact that the actors did not try to play the roll the same as the TV actors, but they kept some of the signature lines. This movie was exactly what I expected. Lots of things blowing up and well designed plans. I just love it when a plan comes together. Good movie for those of us feeling nostalgic over old TV shows.

***** Minor spoiler ******
I did like the story line of this movie. I remember watching the TV show and they always said they were fugitives “for crimes they did not commit”, but never said how this top notch team was framed. This story does it, and makes it believable.

  1. I’ve been wondering about the fugitive thing… thanks for confirming. I do want to see it. And I’m like you. It’s a summer popcorn movie based on an explosive, fun 80s show so not going to expect an Oscar worthy flick

  2. The paper did a summary of the fugitive thing, so it was already spoiled for me. Though not really. Believe it or not, I never watched the A Team back in the day.

    The Karate Kid remake (should have titled it “Kung Fu Kid”) came out too, but apparently is quite forgettable.

  3. I don’t know if I’ll see either one of these. I never watched the A-Team tv show. And I never even saw the original Karate Kid all the way through until I was an adult. I’m not sure if the kids would like it or not. I’m not sure if either one of these movies is worth the newly increased prices at the local theater. Toy Story 3, now that is worth saving up for to see it in 3D!
