independence day – resurgence movie poster
This is probably the worst sequel ever made. Its crappiness partly stems from how really good the original ID4 movie was – the chasm between the first and second in this franchise is wide enough to land a cat on the moon in. The tagline is, “We had twenty years to prepare.” The revised tagline needs to include, “and yet we threw a bunch of cutting room floor footage together over the long weekend and called the results a movie.”
Here’s what the kitties have to say:
Baker — My humans were laughing so hard at this parody that I had trouble sleeping through it. Wait, what? It wasn’t meant to be a parody? Two paws way, way down!
Lance — I had to go into the other room. It was fine at first, but there was this part with a dog in it and all that yapping got on my nerves. Two paws enthusiastically down.
Butters (our intern Kitty Meowvie Critic) — There were things moving on the screen. Whizzy lights and Jeff Goldblum. I can’t think of a better way to spend Saturday night with my humans. I can’t count, but I raise all my paws and even my tail to this masterpiece of whizzy things.
Vin Diesel and Paul Walker in The Fast and the Furious
The original “The Fast and the Furious” came out in 2001. Vin Diesel and Paul Walker were excellent and kept viewers excited as they zoomed through the streets and performed daring stunt driving. It’s no wonder that this film erupted into one of Hollywood’s most successful and longest-running franchises. Click the movie poster to read all about it on IMDb.
Baker: “This movie really excited me! It inspired me to run around like crazy, and it’s not even two a.m. yet! Two paws up!”
Lance: “A very intense movie. I chased my ball around for nearly ten minutes after watching this! Two paws up!”
Watch “The Fast and the Furious” if you don’t intend to get much sleep tonight, because the adrenaline in your veins will keep you up for hours after the movie is finished. If you are short on time, watch Baker and Lance in the two-minute cat version, “The Fast and the Furriest,” by clicking here:

Click to find out more about the original zombie movie from IMDb!
George Romero and John Russo were definitely pioneers in Hollywood. Produced in 1968, “Night of the Living Dead” was the first ever zombie movie. Nearly fifty years later, The Walking Dead is one of the most popular shows on television, continuing the story of flesh-eating, slow-moving undead originally conceived by Romero and Russo. Not only do the “Night of the Living Dead” zombies have staying power, but the film was filled with Hollywood firsts: an African American hero doing his best to save the white heroine, a fully nude zombie, a young girl zombie eating her parents… if anybody didn’t run out of the theater screaming in 1968, I’ll eat my pizza!
Baker: “This movie made my fur stand on end! Two paws up!”
Lance: “Humans should not be allowed to watch Night of the Living Dead while petting their kitties. The excitement lead to faster and faster scritching, and made it difficult to sleep. But I did get a pretty good head massage out of it, so two paws up!”
If you don’t think you can stomach all ninety-six minutes of fear and gore, Baker and Lance have produced their slightly tamer, definitely shorter version: “Night of the Mewing Dead.” Click to watch it on YouTube.

Baker and Lance review Unfinished Business
Unfinished Business is a meandering look at the funny side of big business. Vince Vaughn plays Dan Trunkman, a small business owner who discovers that he has a lot of people relying on him. Find out all about it on IMDb.
Lance: This movie was great. There was just enough space on the sofa for me to curl up between my humans and it gave me a solid 91 minutes of evening nap time, with scritches. Two paws up!
Baker: My human laughed loudly throughout the movie, but it didn’t disturb my rest. Two paws up!
Baker and Lance review Paddington
We watched Paddington because it got 100% on the Tomatometer, but now I see it is down to 98. It is about a talking bear from Darkest Peru who travels to London in search of a home. More on Paddington at IMDB.
Baker: Very enjoyable. Constant movement. Two paws up.
Lance: I think it gave my humans renewed appreciation for the furry members of the family, such as myself.
Baker and Lance review Interstellar
“Apparently, Christopher Nolan’s brother, Jonathan, wrote most of the script, and then at the part where [spoiler spoiler spoiler], Christopher Nolan took over and wrote the rest, and that’s why it’s good right up to that point and then gets silly.” – Spot-the-Kitty artist Keeana Borrowman

Baker: This movie provided a lot of opportunity for snuggling with my humans. Two paws up!
