Friday Review: Avengers: Endgame

The following is chock full of spoiling spoilery spoilers. If you have not seen Avengers: Endgame as yet (why????), don't read if you don't want to know. The requested moratorium on Endgame spoilers ended Monday, so we have seen much discussion about the movie. I am going to go into some length here with my … Continue reading Friday Review: Avengers: Endgame

Friday (Movie) Review: Spiderman: Homecoming

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars Okay, yes, I am still catching up on some of the MCU movies. I've seen the direct Avengers series in the theater, as well as a few of the others (like Ragnorak), but some of the others I didn't catch while they were still in the movies houses. So, I'm … Continue reading Friday (Movie) Review: Spiderman: Homecoming

Friday (Movies) Review: Hunter Killer and Shattered

We watched these two Gerard Butler movies recently. Hunter Killer is the more recent of the two, released in 2018. Shattered (originally titled Butterfly on a Wheel) is from 2007. They are very different movies, so I am not going to try to compare them. I'll just give a few thoughts. Hunter Killer: ( 2.5 stars) This is your basic military … Continue reading Friday (Movies) Review: Hunter Killer and Shattered

Friday (Movie) Review: Spectre

My rating: 3 stars In this fourth outing for Daniel Craig as the world's superest super spy, we are given what is supposed to be, I suppose, SPECTRE's origin story. The film opens with Bond being suspended for the umpteenth time after a bit of an incident in Mexico City. MI6 has been dismantled (see … Continue reading Friday (Movie) Review: Spectre

Friday (Movie) Review: Jurassic Park: The Mega-Watch

We were shopping at BJ's Wholesale club a couple weeks ago, and they had a bin of sale DVDs. We looked through them, and found all of the Jurassic Park movies (except, of course, the one that just came out). We bought them. Hey, for $5 each, why not? And, of course, then we had … Continue reading Friday (Movie) Review: Jurassic Park: The Mega-Watch

Friday Review: The All-Pro (Galactic Football League #3) by Scott Sigler

The All-Pro by Scott Sigler My rating: 4 of 5 stars This is the third in the Galactic Football League series, and Quentin Barnes and the Krakens are back for another season of football. This time, they are gunning for the Galactic Bowl and are determined to win the championship. As usual, it's not a … Continue reading Friday Review: The All-Pro (Galactic Football League #3) by Scott Sigler

Friday (Movie) Review: Avengers: Infinity War

We finally got to see it this week. I will try to make this as spoiler free as I can, but if you haven't seen it yet, and have managed to avoid knowing even the broad strokes that everyone knew before it opened (like if you have avoided watching the trailers, etc.), stop here. I … Continue reading Friday (Movie) Review: Avengers: Infinity War

Friday (Movie) Review: Dr. Strange

My rating: 4 of 5 stars I went to see Dr. Strange with Stephanie on Wednesday. Overall impression? It was good! Perhaps not quite as much fun as some other of the Marvel Universe movies, but quite enjoyable. Plenty of action, some humor, a few outright laughs, and pretty much what you would expect from a … Continue reading Friday (Movie) Review: Dr. Strange

Friday Review: Grave Measures (Grave Report #2) by R.R. Virdi

Grave Measures by R.R. Virdi My rating: 3 of 5 stars Vincent Graves is back. This time, he wakes up in the body of Charles, who is in a mental institution. All Vincent knows, as usual, is that Charles is dead (otherwise Vincent would not be inhabiting his body) and that his death was caused … Continue reading Friday Review: Grave Measures (Grave Report #2) by R.R. Virdi

Friday Review: Slingers, Volume 1 by Matt Wallace

Slingers by Matt Wallace My rating: 3 of 5 stars This is a quick reading short introduction to the Slingers series. It introduces the world of to-the-death "games" that have become a cult-like obsession on this rather desolate Earth and the city that orbits above. With a book as short as this (about 54 pages), … Continue reading Friday Review: Slingers, Volume 1 by Matt Wallace
