TEEN TITANS GO! TO THE MOVIES REVIEW

   First off, no spoilers. Over the weekend I saw the new Teen Titans Go movie that came out on July 27, 2018. If you have been on the fence about see this movie, don't be, this is a must see. It had me laughing from start to finish. All the funny references, from past and current DC and Marvel movies and comics was brilliantly written in to the movie. And you got to love that Nicholas Cage finally got to play Superman, even if it was a voice over roll.

CHEESECAKE FACTORY REVIEW

   I have only been to The Cheesecake Factory twice in my life, and I really don't know if I will go back again. I went there the first time years ago, and from what I remember, it was a good experience. This last trip, not so much. Last Sunday(4/22/18), I went to the Cheesecake Factory in Pleasanton California with my brother Joseph, sister Emily, and wife Crystal, we did not have a good time.

   We did not have a long wait, we got sat pretty fast. The outside sitting was open, so we decided to eat our lunch outside in the beautiful weather we was having. The waiter came over and took our drink orders, and after awhile took our food order. As we sat outside, the sun started to move. When we sat down, the sun was behind the building, and now was right in my face. I get that since we decided to sit outside, that that was a possibility of happening. When our waiter came to check on us, I asked if he could bring a extra umbrella that was sitting in the corner over to block the sun, he said okay and left.

THE STRANGERS: PREY AT NIGHT (SPOILERS)

   I just got home from seeing The Strangers: Prey At Night, the sequel to the 2008 movie The Strangers. Both movies have the same plot line. Three people in masks go and kill people in remote areas. In the first movie, the big quote was when asked,"Why are you doing this?" was,"Because you were home". The thought of no rhyme or reason for there actions, and the way they stalked there victims gave you a real uneasy feeling. Its not really a gory movie, its more about being intense and to mess with your psyche.

   In this sequel the three killers, only known as Dollface, Pin Up Girl, and the Man In The Mask arrive to a trailer park campsite, and kill the keepers of the park. Meanwhile, a family that consist of a mother, father, brother, and sister, gets ready to head out to take there daughter to a boarding school, cause she is just too much to handle. There is a lot of poor parenting in this movie. They end up at the trailer park as a pit stop, which happens to be the mother's uncles place.

DEATH WISH (2018) NO SPOILERS

   I just got home from watching the remake to the 1974 film that starred Charles Bronson, Death Wish, which was based off a book by Brian Garfield. In the new 2018 version of the classic movie, Bruce Willis takes on the lead role as Paul Kersey. The city it takes place also changed from New York to Chicago. When I first saw the trailer for Death Wish and saw that Bruce Willis was going to play the lead role, I got excited. The fact that they used a well known actor and not some random Joe Blow, made the idea of a remake more acceptable.

DON JOSE'S MEXICAN RESTAURANT FOOD REVIEW

   Don Jose's Mexican Restaurant in Castro Valley, California has some great memories for me when I was in and after I graduated from high school. I use to frequent that place all the time, they had the best salsa. I remember one time a friend and I went there just for some chips and salsa cause they were so good. Back then, that was my spot, I took many dates there. Now a days the food, not as good though.

   I had been to Don Jose's in a few years, then went back to be disappointed. The food was not as I remembered, and the salsa tasted like tomato paste. I could not believe that one of my favorite spots had gone down so much in just a few years of me being there. After that experience, I said that I would not return. So I moved on from a place that was a go to for me.
