Spy is a movie featuring Melissa McCarthy as CIA analyst Susan Cooper. She has a strong working relationship with Bradley Fine (Jude Law) and a close friendship with fellow CIA colleague Nancy B Artingstall (Miranda Hart). Susan Cooper ends up volunteering herself to be directly in the field due to her feeling to go after Raya Boyanov (Rose Byrne) after what she sees involving her coworker Bradley Fine. Elaine Crocker (Allison Janney) decides to give Susan Cooper a chance to be in the field with greater CIA responsibilities despite protests from fellow CIA agent Rick Ford (Jason Statham). Cooper’s new assignments have her directly dealing with both Raya Boyanov and charismatic but dangerous Sergio De Luca (Bobby Canavale).

24 Season 1
24 Season 1
Price: $19.99

5.0 out of 5 stars If You Like Spy or CIA Themed Television, October 7, 2015
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
Season 1 of 24 stars Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer. Jack Bauer works in the Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU) based out of Los Angeles California. He puts his all into his job and ends up juggling the demands of protecting Senator David Palmer and his family from being assassinated (Senator David Palmer is played by Dennis Haysbert also known as the Allstate Insurance guy) and looking after his daughter Kim. Kim ran away when Jack Bauer and his wife Teri were about to talk to Kimberly about a personal family issue. Things get even more complicated when Jack Bauer learns that there is a mole within his own agency and his daughter Kim and her daughter Janet have been kidnapped. Of course, there is so much more to 24 than what I just listed an Season 1 of the 24 series definitely keeps a person in suspense. There is even information online about certain key addresses such as for 2350 Dunlop Plaza in Los Angeles California to be an office building location for the hour sequence of 1-2 am in the 24 tv series of season 1 (listed via online wikia).

5.0 out of 5 stars Sci-Fi Redbox Rental, October 7, 2015
This review is from: Interstellar (DVD)
I admit that I actually planned on renting Interstellar via the Redbox machine at my job, however it was out of stock. Fortunately, I was able to rent a copy through another redbox machine within a few miles of my apartment. Anyhow, the following movie trailers are associated with the dvd version of Interstellar; Terminator Genisys, The Gambler, and Selma. The actual movie Interstellar stars Matthew McConaughey as a farmer/astronaut named Cooper who is sent to a secret Nasa colony as part of a plan to recolonize outside of earth as the earth’s food supply is threatened. Cooper is close to his children Murph and Tom (various ages played by Mackenzie Foy, Timothee Chalamet, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck). Cooper teams up with a man named Professor Brand (Micheal Caine), Professor Brand’s daughter (Anne Hathaway), and Romilly (David Gyasi)to go on the Nasa Secret mission. After he leaves, Cooper’s children are initially looked after by his father-in-law Donald (John Lithgow). There are multiple strange things that happen to Cooper after he leaves such as the fact that he eventually sees that his daughter (in one of the received space communications0 is now the same age that he was when he left. Matt Damon and David Oyelowo make appearances in Interstellar as well. Oyelowo makes an appearance as a school principal and Damon makes an appearance as fellow astronaut Dr. Mann.

Songs from The Martian
Songs from The Martian
Offered by SONY Music Entertainment Downloads LLC.
Price: $7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Shining Music Mix, October 7, 2015
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
I purchased the Martian Soundtrack (for the movie starring Matt Damon)because it lists to be what looks like dazzling songs on the Martian movie soundtrack. I admit that my current favorites from Songs From The Martian are Hot Stuff by Donna Summer, Turn The Beat Around by Vickie Sue Robinson (first heard through Gloria Estefan and VH1 as a teenager in the 1990s), and Waterloo by Abba (I first heard through the Mamma Mia movie back in 2009 when living in Orlando Florida). Nonetheless, fortunately, I’m glad that I followed my heart and intuition because of the brilliant and eclectic mix that also completed out the cd with music also by David Bowie, Harry Gregson Williams, The O’Jays, The Hues Corporation, Gloria Gaynor, and Thelma Houston. I admit that I also purchased this music collection to get a feel of the movie before my husband and I see The Martian sometime within the next 7 days.

Bruce Almighty (Widescreen Edition)
Bruce Almighty (Widescreen Edition)
DVD ~ Jim Carrey
Price: $9.58

5.0 out of 5 stars Bruce Nolan’s Spiritual Intervention, October 7, 2015
Bruce Almighty is definitely one of those uplifting movies that gave me a feeling and determination to keep watching again (at least once every 1-2 months). One of the reasons; Bruce Almighty stars Jim Carey as Bruce Nolan. He enjoys his job as a television promoter but wants to aim higher in his career. He ends up going through an initiation process of reinventing himself after an experience where he reacted with extreme shock (on national television)after he found out that his rival Evan Baxter (Steven Carrell)got the job he wanted and is sitting next to a coworker named Susan Ortega (Catherine Bell) who he slightly admires. At the time Bruce Nolan was standing next to some type of cruise ship boat called Maid of the Mist and out loud sarcastically confused one of the woman he was interviewing for someone who was on the Titanic and Katherine Hepburn’s mom (with a light-hearted and respectful comedic nod to Kate Winslet). Fortunately he has a caring and self-confident girlfriend named Grace Connelly (Jennifer Aniston) who works at Small Wonders Daycare. Bruce Nolan’s life becomes radically changed after he spiritual surrenders to God and actually meets God (played by Morgan Freeman). God explains to him how things work which is really important as he makes sense of being able to do a Clint Eastwood impersonation, parting tomato soup in a diner, and walking on water. There are numerous pop culture references in Bruce Almighty as well such as when the song Power by Snap plays in the movie as he is using his newfound powers, Never Gonna Give Ya Up by Barry White during a scene involving him and his girlfriend (including Right About Now by Fatboy Slim). There is even an appearance by Tony Bennett in Bruce Almighty where Bruce Nolan takes his girlfriend Grace Connelly to an upscale restaurant called the Blue Palm. There is even a moment of a Mark Twain themed chili cookoff. Please know that I also understand that there were many other strong contributions from other actors/actresses in the Bruce Almighty as well as other pivotal pop culture references. I was just listing what my intuition was guiding me to write.

Pain
Pain
Price: $1.29

5.0 out of 5 stars Gleeful Rock Song, October 7, 2015
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This review is from: Pain (MP3 Music)
Pain by Jimmy Eat World is an uplifting rock song that captures the spirit of being with someone who is a healing and favorable influence in one’s life (via the lyrics takes my pain away). Due to the optimistic nature of Pain by Jimmy Eat World I would guess that it would also be a good addition to a happy love song playlist or just a happy song playlist.

Cult Of Personality [Clean]
Cult Of Personality [Clean]
Offered by SONY Music Entertainment Downloads LLC.
Price: $1.29

5.0 out of 5 stars Cult of Personality by Living Colour, October 7, 2015
I remember first hearing the rock song Cult of Personality when I was around 8 or 9 years old (via both tv and radio). During the past few years I have also heard this song every now and then via the radio (with most recently hearing it via iheart radio). I reluctantly confess to not yet fully understanding the deep meaning of Cult of Personality by Living Colour and many times enjoying more for the music, the unique lyrics, and the speech at the end. I looked through both songfacts and song meanings to interpret that the song could have a meaning to avoid listening and illogically believing everything you read either via media and/or popular and/or charismatic people and to instead strive to more frequently rely on your own intuition and logic.

Footsteps
Footsteps
Price: $1.29

5.0 out of 5 stars Heard on Rock Nation channel from iheartradio, October 7, 2015
This review is from: Footsteps (MP3 Music)
Footsteps by Pop Evil seems to actually be a robust hard rock song about turning over a new leaf in life and going higher in life (i.e. aiming for better in one’s life). This song seems to be a powerful song about tenacity and persistence even in the face of roadblocks and adversity. I admit that I had a sense that I sensed that Footsteps by Pop Evil had an optimistic slant to it, yet I confess that I had to ask my husband to listen to the song as well to confirm what I sense is an auspicious vibe from Footsteps by Pop Evil.

So Hott [Explicit]
So Hott [Explicit]
Price: $1.29

5.0 out of 5 stars I Admit A Guilty Pleasure Rock Song, October 7, 2015
This review is from: So Hott [Explicit] (MP3 Music)
I know that I may get some thumb downs for this but I review So Hott by Kid Rock as a woman who also likes music by Beyonce (I mention this because there was supposedly a listed feud between Kid Rock and Beyonce via a 2014 or 2015 interview he did but I really think that he secretly admires Beyonce as a musician yet was trying to convince himself otherwise). Anyhow,So Hott by Kid Rock seems to be a hard core rock song about basically wanting to only know someone on an extremely casual level (due to a connection based more on a physical attraction and their perceived good looks and/or beauty). The guitar riffs to So Hott bring the song alive as well as his unapologetic and unabashed singing with the daring lyrics. The online music video to So Hott by Kid rock even fits close to the meaning of the song. I first heard the So Hott rock song around 2008 when I was living in Norfolk Virginia (through the U.S. Navy).

5.0 out of 5 stars Alleviating Angelic Music, October 7, 2015
This review is from: Angelic Music (Audio CD)
Angelic Music by Lasos (released 1978)contains an alluring music blend of classical and new age music with the thirty minute track titled Angels of Comfort (a track listed around thirty minutes) and Angel Play (around 29 minutes). There is listed details on both Wikipedia and a BBC website that the Psychology Department at Plymouth State College (based out of Plymouth New Hampshire) mentioned Angelic Music collection by Lasos as being similar to the music many people have heard (in terms of the many people who have had near death experiences).

5.0 out of 5 stars Courageous Music, October 7, 2015
This review is from: Fearless (MP3 Music)
Fearless by Taylor Swift contains a strong mix of country music songs that showcase her musical spirit and soul. Songs such as You Belong With Me, Love Story, and Breathe (feat. Colbie Caillat) display an open musical heart very trusting of what life has to offer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holds Madonna Fans Over Until her Rebel Heart concert dvd Release, October 7, 2015
With gratitude for working at my current place of employment for two years, I preface this review by admitting that seeing a magazine copy of The Rolling Stone Special Collectors Edition of Madonna The Ultimate Guide to Her Music & Legend at the magazine stand of my job was a great consolation to me for not attending her concert (I admit that I would have most likely been approved for the Saturday off of work but I truthfully needed the money). The only caveat is that the listed magazine price for the edition of the magazine is not the cheapest but affordable for the details and photos included in this Rolling Stone Special Collectors Edition of Madonna; The Ultimate Guide to Her Music & Legend. This is because the Rolling Stone Madonna issue packs so much enthralling information such as;
Photos of Madonna and some members of her entourage shot by Steven Miesel in New York February 1991 (starts on page 26)
Starts on page 42-An interview taken during her “Music” era with a photo featuring her and Guy Ritchie. Madonna discusses her feelings around napster. She also discusses some of the musicians, music groups, and movies on her mind. For instance, she mentions that the most recent three cds that she listened to at the time of that 2000 interview were by the soundtrack to the Big Night, a Leftfield cd, a DJ by the name of Jason Bentley , and a singer called Lisa Shaw. She also mentioned about some English bands such as Massive Attack, Tricky, and Goldy. The movies that she mentioned about watching were Next Friday (starring Ice Cube), Exterminating Angel, Caddyshack, Rocco and His Brothers, and Me, Myself, and Irene.

Pg 51- A picture of Madonna on her private plane during the 2005 Confessions on the Dance Floor era. This section lists how Confessions On A Dance Floor actually began as a film directed by the French director Luc Besson (best known for The Fifth Element).
Page 62-A picture of Madonna with Lourdes and her adopted son David while visiting his orphanage in Malawi.
Page 71; A photo of Madonna with her children; David, Lourdes, Mercy, and Rocco.
Pages 76-77; There are detailed discussions around some of Madonna’s popular songs such as Like A Prayer (released 1989), Rain (released 1993), Papa Don’t Preach (released 1986), Vogue (released 1990), Cherish (released 1989), Like A Virgin (released 1984), and Material Girl (released 1985).

5.0 out of 5 stars Dainty Graham Taste, October 7, 2015
This 10.5 ounce of Post Honey Graham Oh’s Cereal (formerly Quaker Honey Graham Oh’s as listed by certain sources online) does combine the smooth taste of honey with the crunchiness of a graham cracker. I also enjoy that this cereal does not get soggy very quickly and actually stays crunchy for a reasonable amount of minutes after the graham ohs are combined with an ample amount of milk.

This Maxwell House International Latte (Café Style) Vanilla Caramel Latte (8.7 ounce plastic container)does deliver a foodie like experience of drinking a coffee place vanilla caramel at home. The Vanilla Caramel flavoring delivers a luscious taste and I also like that this drink can be simply made by microwaving some water in a coffee cup for three minutes and then simply putting four teaspoons of this Vanilla Caramel latte mix in the boiled water coffee cup. Fortunately, my husband enjoys this Maxwell House International latte Vanilla Caramel edition as well and welcomes the option of us purchasing more of this mix as a discounted coffee place/house experience in our apartment.

Dunkin Donuts Coffee Creamer Single Serve 2 Boxes of 24(48 Total) (Caramel)

5.0 out of 5 stars Effective Enhancer for Lattes, October 7, 2015
I purchased a pack of 24 quantity Dunkin Donuts Coffee Creamers (Caramel Flavor)to enhance a Vanilla Caramel latte microwaved drink that tasted already good on its own. Due to my husband’s influence when he started taking me frequently to Starbucks after we met in Japan, I do like to go to Starbucks and other coffee shops from time to time to treat myself to various flavored drinks especially certain flavored lattes. For me, this Dunkin Donuts Coffee Creamer (Extra Creamy Extra Flavor Caramel) is a great way to get an epicure like experience of enhancing a latte at home.

Tostitos Dipatizers, Cheese, 10 Ounce

5.0 out of 5 stars Livens up even the most bland of lunch/supper/dinner foods, October 7, 2015
Tostitos Dipetizers Cheese (also currently listed online as Dipatizers)is a ten ounce Mexican style flavoring that goes with various foods. For instance, on one of my recent work days,I woke up too late to eat dinner before working my overnight shift and so naturally I took some delivery pizza that my husband wrapped up in plastic wrap for me. The pizza tasted differently than I hoped it would be (a monochrome taste) but this Tostitos Mexican Style Four cheese queso made the pizza taste a lot more palatable. It has also livened up some Wendy’s fries that I recently ate for one of my dinners and I was able to have some leftover for some Red Robin frozen package seasoned fries that I purchased. This ten ounce Tostitos package comes with a plastic lid that allows you to store it in a refrigerator for use on another day.
