Ready or not (2019)

Review.

I’m typically not into the horror genre, but this one a. was a gift from some online service, and b. is more action than horror. Call it a light horror movie, I’d say a B+. The best scene is the one in which the bride watches herself in the mirror, holding an elephant rifle. I think just that single image would make the movie deserve a sequel.

Francis James Blair - Bulletproof Witch - The Delivery of Flesh (2019)

Review.

Just started this YA (?) series, about an alternative reality in which a gun-slinging daughter tries to take down the demon that killed her grandpa. I never heard of it before, but a reader told me Kind’s Kiss made him think of that series, so I had to try. (I think it's very different, but that's okay.)

Disney - The Mandalorian

Review.

Finally. Redemption.  After the promising The Force Awakens came The Last Jedi, which was so bad I completely gave up on the Star Wars universe. I still don’t know why they did not base the latest trilogy on Zahn’s three books (some seriously good reads)… still, TFA was promising. Then came TLJ and I thought I would never enjoy anything Star Wars again. (Except perhaps for the cartoons.)

Netflix - The Order (2019)

Review.

Better than I expected. I didn’t watch it when the first season was released, especially because season one had a cliffhanger. When season two came along I gave it a chance. Light fare, teen demography, werewolves versus magicians.

Critique Swaps

Writing.

Welcome in 2021! It's time to wrap up Kind's Kiss, but I could use a little more feedback, so... how about some critique swaps?

Interested? Then read on...

Wallpaper - Doctor Strange

 

Some wallpapers are stranger than life... (Click the image to enlarge.)

I believe wallpapers are an essential part of our day-to-day computer experience, so of course I have a whole slew of 'm, that automatically rotate on every reboot.

I'll share one every month.
