Movie Night: Inferno

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When Robert Langdon wakes up in an Italian hospital with amnesia, he teams up with Dr. Sienna Brooks, and together they must race across Europe against the clock to foil a deadly global plot.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                                    

 

                 

Inferno was okay but it just didn't carry the same weight as The Da Vinci Code did.

I didn't think the pacing of the movie was very good and I didn't particularly care for the actress who was chosen to play Sienna. She lacked the personality and vibrancy I was expecting and hoping to find in a lead actress, especially in a film like this.

The whole movie felt more than a little numb which prevented me from personally engaging in the same emotional intensity or interest that The Da Vinci Code did.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Movie Night: Bad Moms

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When three overworked and under-appreciated moms are pushed beyond their limits, they ditch their conventional responsibilities for a jolt of long overdue freedom, fun, and comedic self-indulgence.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                                    

 

                 

I get the point that this movie was trying to make but for myself personally, I don't relate to this generations idea of humor so it wasn't as enjoyable for me as I would have liked it to be. For some I'm sure this movie will be a hit however I was the wrong kind of viewer for this type of comedy. I gave it two stars because I like the cast.

 

 

 

 

 

Movie Night: Sully

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The story of Chesley Sullenberger, an American pilot who became a hero after landing his damaged plane on the Hudson River in order to save the flight's passengers and crew.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                                    

 

                 

Sully was a good movie which Hanks portrays very well. I thought Sully was worth the watch but the long drawn out periods during the trial and the conflicting news and media claims drew out the movie a little bit too much. Still it was ended well and I liked it. Its sad he basically had to defend himself in order not to be held accountable for what happened to save his name and reputation against the flight companies but its easily understandable since we are a society in which struggles to take responsibility for anything. Sully did his job and he saved his passengers. The end.

 

 

 

 

 

Movie Night: Hidden Figures

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The story of a team of female African-American mathematicians who served a vital role in NASA during the early years of the U.S. space program.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                                    

 

                 

Fun, amazing and simply impressive, Hidden Figures has an absolutely fantastic cast that carry this movie perfectly. I loved the ensemble of ladies who were in this movie.

A perfect fit to tell these real women's stories on how their determination and their will to forge a way in their times changed the direction of history for America's space program. I highly enjoyed Hidden Figures from beginning to end.

Enjoy An Exclusive Sneek Peek Of: Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia!

Eliza and Her Monsters  
Eighteen-year-old Eliza Mirk is the anonymous creator of Monstrous Sea, a wildly popular webcomic, but when a new boy at school tempts her to live a life offline, everything she's worked for begins to crumble.

 
LEARN MORE
 

Prologue



Eliza Mirk is the kind of name you give to the creepy girl who clings to her ex-boyfriend for weeks after he’s dumped her because she refuses to accept that he hates her guts. Eliza Mirk is a low-level villain with a secret hideout in the sewers. Eliza Mirk belongs in a comic book.

But Eliza Mirk is me. I don’t think I’m desperate or deluded enough to hang on to an ex-boyfriend after he’s broken up with me, I wouldn’t go near a sewer with a ten-foot pole, and unfortunately I do not live in a comic book. I do live kind of a comic-book life, though, I guess.

I go to school during the day, and at night I cast off my secret identity to become LadyConstellation, creator of one of the internet’s most popular webcomics, Monstrous Sea, and fearless mother of a fandom. My superpower is the ability to draw for hours without realizing what time it is or that I haven’t eaten in too long. I succeed in disappearing in my disguise, and I excel at standing out in my true form.

Why LadyConstellation? you may ask.

Because, I reply, my favorite culture in Monstrous Sea comes from a people who have stars in their blood. These people— Nocturnians—instinctively chart stars. That is their calling in life. That is what they feel they must do, as I feel I must tell their story.

LadyConstellation is the one charting this story, drawing lines between plots and characters and places like the Nocturnians draw connections between stars. She is fearless, like the Nocturnians; she is mysterious and aloof, like the Nocturnians; and like the Nocturnians, she believes in the mystical, the supernatural, and the unknown.

LadyConstellation is the hero who defeats Eliza Mirk once a week and celebrates with her many admiring fans. She is beloved by all, even the villain, because without her the villain wouldn’t exist.

I am LadyConstellation.

I am also Eliza Mirk.

This is the paradox that can never be solved.



Chapter 1



The origin post is open on my computer when I shuffle over to it in the morning. Overnight, another three hundred comments have cropped up. I don’t know what they say anymore—I haven’t checked in months. I know some are from fans. A lot are from trolls. I don’t look at the post for the comments. I look because it is my daily reminder that all of this—all of my life—is a real thing.

My beginning is time-stamped in history.

I smooth down my tangle of hair, yawn, and rub sleep from my eyes. When I blink, the post is still there, sitting happy near the top of the Masterminds subforum for webcomics.You’d think, after two years, it would have fallen. It hasn’t.

I close the browser before I betray my own rules. I do not read comments. Comments are explosives for mental walls, and right now I need those walls up. I open Photoshop to find the file I was working on last night, a half-finished page from Monstrous Sea. All the line work is done. I started on the colors but didn’t finish, and I still need to add the text. Still, I’m ahead of schedule. This will be a whole chapter kind of week. My minimum for each week is one page; usually I average three. I always have something to post.

I skim over the comic page, skipping from panel to panel, double-checking the characters and settings. I lay out the rest of the colors in my head, then the light sources and the shadows. The text. The flow of the action looks okay, but in the bottom panel I drew Amity’s nose too narrow again. It’s always noticeable in close-ups of her face, and it’s always her nose. I’ll have to fix it later. I don’t have time now.

Like it agrees with me, my alarm clock goes off, and I jump. Even when I know it’s coming, even when I’m staring right at the thing. I shuffle back to the other side of the room to hit the button before it wakes up Church and Sully in the next room. Stupid middle schoolers get to sleep in an extra half hour, and they think they’re kings.

Mom already has two hard-boiled eggs and a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice ready for me when I get downstairs. I don’t know when she hard-boiled those eggs. She certainly didn’t do it last night, and it’s the crack of dawn now. She sits at the island counter in her running outfit with her bouncy ponytail, reading some health article on her tablet. A few strands of hair are out of place, and water splashes in the shower down the hall. She and Dad are already back from their early morning run. Heinous.

“Morning, hon!” I know in some universe she must be speaking at normal volume, but it is not this universe. “Made you breakfast. Are you feeling okay? You look a little gray.”

I grunt. Morning is the devil’s time. And Mom has told me I “look gray” at least once a week for the past year. I drop onto the island stool in front of the eggs and juice and begin eating. Maybe I should try coffee. Coffee might help. Coffee might also send me into spiraling bouts of depression.

Under Mom’s elbow is today’s issue of the Westcliff Star. I pull it over and turn it around. The front-page headline reads REMINDERS PLACED AT WELLHOUSE TURN. Below that is a picture of the sharp turn in the road past Wellhouse Bridge where wreaths of flowers, ribbons, and toys decorate the ground. That’s local Indiana news for you: they have nothing, so they fill their pages with the reminder that Wellhouse Turn kills more people every year than great white sharks. Also local Indiana news: comparing a turn in the road to a shark.

I finish the first egg. Dad comes out of the back hall smelling like a pack of spearmint gum and wearing slightly different running gear than what he wears when he goes out with Mom, which means these are his work clothes for the day.

“Morning, Eggs!” He stops behind me, puts his hands on my shoulders, and leans down to kiss the top of my head. I grunt at the nickname and stuff egg in my mouth. Hard-boiled heaven. “How’d you sleep?”

I shrug. Is it too much to ask that no one speak to me in the morning? I have just enough energy in my mouth to eat delicious eggs; there’s none left to form words. Not to mention that in twenty minutes I have to get in my car to go to school for seven hours, where I’m sure plenty of talking will happen, whether I like it or not.

Mom distracts Dad with her health article, which is apparently about the benefits of cycling. I tune them out. Read about how the Westcliff High band bus driver fell asleep at the wheel and drove off Wellhouse Turn last summer on their way back from regionals. Chew. Before that it was a guy driving with his son in the winter. Drink juice. And before that, a woman taking her two kids to day care early in the morning. Chew more. A group of drunk teenagers. Finish off the egg. A lone girl who hit the wrong patch of black ice. Finish off the juice. They should put up a barrier to keep people from flying off the turn and down the hill to the river, but no. Without Wellhouse Turn, we have no news.

“Don’t forget, your brothers have their first soccer game this afternoon,” Mom says when I drop off my stool and take my plate and cup to the sink. “They’re really excited, and we all have to be there to support them. Okay?”

I hate it when she says “Okay?” like that. Like she expects me to get angry at her before the words are ever out of her mouth. Always prepared for a fight.

“Yeah,” I say. I can’t muster any more. I return upstairs to my room for my backpack, my sketchbook, and my shoes. I jump up and down a few times in an attempt to get more blood flowing to my brain. Eggs eaten. Energy up. Ready for battle.

I resist the urge to go back to my computer, open up the browser, and check the Monstrous Sea forums. I don’t read comments, and I don’t check the forums before I leave for school. That computer is my rabbit hole; the internet is my wonderland.

I am only allowed to fall into it when it doesn’t matter if I get lost.

Amity had two birth days. The first was the same as anyone’s, and she didn’t remember it. She didn’t spend much time dwelling on the fact that she didn’t remember it, because she had learned years ago that nothing good came of dwelling. The second birth—or the rebirth, depending on what mood she found herself in—she remembered with stunning clarity, and imagined she would for the rest of her life.

Her second birth was the day the Watcher took her as its host.

PR agent Annika Lund can spin any disaster into a win. But revamping the reputation of a notorious Swedish hockey player will take every trick in her arsenal, especially when his agent insists that convincing everyone he’s no longer a playboy is top priority. And that it requires a sham relationship—with Annika playing the part of loving girlfriend.

On fire in the rink and in the bedroom, Axl Hammerquist couldn’t care less about being anyone’s golden boy. So when his agent forces him to play nice with a new publicist, he takes satisfaction in being as much of a pain as possible. But the more time he spends getting to know Annika, the more Axl starts to think that being Mr. Nice Guy might be worth it if it gets him the girl.

 

 

 

I'm caught between three and four stars but the cast and their personalities carried All You Need and carried me as the reader through the opposites attract relationship between Axl and Anni. I liked that James opened Anni up to the sports equation and Axl to some normalcy.

It wasn't just the h/h that carried the weight of All You Need but the supporting characters had a lot to do with it as well. As many know that is something I like with the books I read is heavy character involvement. Lorelei James wrote a fantastic story that I really enjoyed. Sports and all.

Lupine Shifter Dimitri has always had to defend himself to other Shifters. As a red wolf, he’s not considered a “pure” wolf, and the battles have honed him into a tough fighter, a champion of the fight clubs. Jaycee Bordeaux, a leopard Shifter, is Dimitri’s staunchest defender and oldest friend. Dimitri is determined to turn that friendship into a mate bond.

Jaycee loves that idea, but she knows that a mate bond can’t be forced. And when Dimitri and Jaycee are called on to go undercover to protect collared Shifters, she knows the dangers ahead will make or break their future together.

 

 

 

 

 

I wasn't sure that Red Wolf was going to be a winner for me but it was the right struggle at the right time for our h/h and the right time for me to be open to their struggle and over coming their struggles each in their own way.

Usually I wouldn't care for the kind of on and off with eachother and not with eachother kind of thing but something about the way Ashley brought both Dimitri and Jaycee to life, the way she made them easy to relate to flaws and all made me like their struggles all the more. I gotta hand it to Ashley. I fell in love with Red Wolf and enjoyed it from beginning to end. It was definitely the right read at the right time.

In search of a fresh start, Emma Baxter has traveled to Scotland to try to forget her rocky love life. Luckily, the gorgeous Highlander who owns the house up the path from her rental cottage might be exactly the kind of distraction she needs. But there’s more to his intriguing qualities than she can explain—and she certainly isn’t buying into the local legends of Highland magic.

Nathaniel MacLeod is a man adrift, all thanks to the unwanted gift that forces him to continually jump between centuries. He never knows if he’ll wind up in the present day or the fourteenth century, but when Emma follows him back through time, he suddenly has more to worry about than keeping his separate lives straight…

Someone has started to notice Nathaniel’s travels and now, no time period is safe, for him or for Emma.

 

 

 

I really hated rating this book two stars but it was fairly difficult for me who hadn't read the previous book to really hop right into. While its not totally necessary I don't think there are quite a few details and characters that appear to carry over with information that left me on the outside looking in without any real context.

I did like the thriller / suspense kind of angle that was written into this book however it left me contused as to what this book was really supposed to be.

Its very well written and its a great read and I liked the idea but because I didn't have any real grasp on it I think that left me more at a loss than anything. If you haven't read the previous books in this series I highly suggest it so that you have a better understanding on what's going on where the added information is included, if you have read it I'm sure its a new installment to the MacLeod series that you will very much enjoy.

Movie Night: The Girl In The Show

 

 

 

 

 

 

A traveling Tom show is stranded in Kansas when their manager steals what meager funds they have.

Hattie Hartley (Bessie Love), who plays Eva in the production, decides to marry the local undertaker, so that he will fund the troupe and pay for her younger sister's schooling.

On the day of the wedding, the troupe is booked for a performance at the last minute.

Hattie refuses to get married so that she can play the role of Eva, an act which reunites her with her true love, a member of their troupe

 

 

 

 

                                                    

 

                 

The Girl In The Show was an okay film considering it was one of the company's first talkies. Granted, it felt more small scale highschool play kind of feel to it but you can't expect a whole lot out of these early projects so I didn't judge it too harshly.

I liked the cast and it was enjoyable just on those merits alone. The lighting and sound as well as the script were poor, the acting was poor but to be honest I kind of liked the pure raw feel of it all.

French vs. American social customs and behaviors are observed in a story about an American visiting her Frenchman-wed sister in Paris.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                                    

 

                 

Le Divorce was portrayed as a comedy/romance/slapstick but it turned out as a heavy handed drama instead. Le Divorce was long winded and drawn out, the acting was good but I felt like the movie wasn't quite sure what it wanted to be.

Between the French/American crossing over of traditions and beliefs, the family history, the art and the relationships it didn't quite come together as well as it should have despite the quickie sum up at the end. I love Kate Hudson but I don't think this was one of her better choice of films to play in.

How did Davy Crockett save President Jackson's life only to end up dying at the Alamo? Was the Lone Ranger based on a real lawman-and was he an African American? What amazing detective work led to the capture of Black Bart, the "gentleman bandit" and one of the west's most famous stagecoach robbers?

Did Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid really die in a hail of bullets in South America? Generations of Americans have grown up on TV shows, movies and books about these western icons. But what really happened in the Wild West?

All the stories you think you know, and others that will astonish you, are here--some heroic, some brutal and bloody, all riveting. Included are the ten legends featured in Bill O'Reilly's Legends and Lies docuseries -from Kit Carson to Jesse James, Wild Bill Hickok to Doc Holliday-- accompanied by two bonus chapters on Daniel Boone and Buffalo Bill and Annie Oakley.
Frontier America was a place where instinct mattered more than education, and courage was necessary for survival. It was a place where luck made a difference and legends were made. Heavily illustrated with spectacular artwork that further brings this history to life, and told in fast-paced, immersive narrative,

Legends and Lies is an irresistible, adventure-packed ride back into one of the most storied era of our nation's rich history.

 

 

 

 

 

I wasn't as impressed by this book as I thought I would be.

The accumulation of persons written about and the information that was included wasn't really anything new that isn't already known.

Ignoring the misspelling and other errors it just wasn't that big a deal. Granted I've always been a fan of history figures I think I was just expecting something else when I got this book.

Legends and Lies was recommended to me by a friend and it was good just wasn't great and didn't include any new information I hadn't already seen written by other authors. 

If you haven't already read about this history or these historical figures before this will be a really great read but for those that have there isn't a whole lot of fresh information or perspective to discover.

 

 

 

Until next time book lovers...

The Son by Philipp Meyer

The acclaimed author of American Rust, returns with The Son: an epic, multigenerational saga of power, blood, and land that follows the rise of one unforgettable Texas family from the Comanche raids of the 1800s to the border raids of the early 1900s to the oil booms of the 20th century.

Part epic of Texas, part classic coming-of-age story, part unflinching portrait of the bloody price of power, The Son is an utterly transporting novel that maps the legacy of violence in the American West through the lives of the McCulloughs, an ambitious family as resilient and dangerous as the land they claim.

Spring, 1849. The first male child born in the newly established Republic of Texas, Eli McCullough is thirteen years old when a marauding band of Comanche storm his homestead and brutally murder his mother and sister, taking him captive. Brave and clever, Eli quickly adapts to Comanche life, learning their ways and language, answering to a new name, carving a place as the chief's adopted son, and waging war against their enemies, including white men-complicating his sense of loyalty and understanding of who he is. But when disease, starvation, and overwhelming numbers of armed Americans decimate the tribe, Eli finds himself alone. Neither white nor Indian, civilized or fully wild, he must carve a place for himself in a world in which he does not fully belong-a journey of adventure, tragedy, hardship, grit, and luck that reverberates in the lives of his progeny.

Intertwined with Eli's story are those of his son, Peter, a man who bears the emotional cost of his father's drive for power, and JA, Eli's great-granddaughter, a woman who must fight hardened rivals to succeed in a man's world.

Phillipp Meyer deftly explores how Eli's ruthlessness and steely pragmatism transform subsequent generations of McCulloughs. Love, honor, children are sacrificed in the name of ambition, as the family becomes one of the richest powers in Texas, a ranching-and-oil dynasty of unsurpassed wealth and privilege. Yet, like all empires, the McCoulloughs must eventually face the consequences of their choices.

Harrowing, panoramic, and vividly drawn, The Son is a masterful achievement from a sublime young talent.

 

 

 

 

I thought The Son was great.. however there was just so much detail that it bogged down all the emotional scenes and made everything feel a little long between the character interaction that it stretches out and elongates everything that I felt could have been more summed up.

It seemed as I read further through the book that it was an author trait to really vividly detail everything in the book which felt more like an environmental read than emotional one despite the emotional experiences being the main focus of this book.

To sum up the emotional journey and the journey of the family The Son felt more like a collection of family stories that got passed down even though the reader gets to experience them from one event or another.

These events sort of carve out in history who the family as time passes become and how those events kind of change who they are. Its actually an amazing book worthy of five stars I just rated the book three stars because as a reader I'm more of a character person myself.

I down rated The Son because despite the emotional turmoil, the family and the large cast and how wonderfully it was written The Son felt like more of an environmental read that lacked the full development of emotional connections I prefer to have in stories like these.

I wanted to care more about the characters, I wanted to care about who was who and how they were connected and what their story was except the author tended to maintain his focus on just one person instead of all of them. Maybe its a little too greedy of me, but I still highly recommend The Son to anyone who hasn't read it yet. The Son is a great book.
