Some Thoughts After Seeing Scream

I have been a big fan of the Scream franchise from the start. I remember seeing the first movie in the Grandin Theater in my hometown when I was just a junior in high school. That theater, by the way, if you aren't familiar with Roanoke area landmarks is one of those really old theaters. … Continue reading Some Thoughts After Seeing Scream


Some Thoughts After Seeing The Eternals

As this is the latest film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and it was only released a few days ago, I'm gonna keep this as spoiler-free as possible. But if you haven't seen The Eternals and want to go into it knowing as little as possible, you may turn back now. It should come as … Continue reading Some Thoughts After Seeing The Eternals

The Highway

The Highway C.J. Box 2013 Maybe it was a mistake for me to watch the first season of ABC's Big Sky. Most of that first season is based on this particular book. While there are some definite differences between the novel and the TV series, all of the major plot points are there. And I … Continue reading The Highway

Star Wars: Light of the Jedi

Star Wars: Light of the Jedi Charles Soule 2021 I was mostly excited to have Star Wars content that had nothing to do with Skywalkers or Palpatines.

Catwoman: Soulstealer Sarah J. Maas 2018 So far I've read three of the DC Icons book series: Batman-Nightcrawler; Wonder Woman-Warbringer; and now this. So far, I've really enjoyed all three. I still have one to go with Superman-Dawnbreaker, which I already own. But like so many books on my bookshelf, I just haven't gotten around … Continue reading Catwoman: Soulstealer

Ready Player Two

Ready Player Two Ernest Cline 2020 I absolutely LOVED Ready Player One. I enjoyed it so much that, after reading through it once, I downloaded the audiobook to let Wil Wheaton read it to me again. And it was fantastic. And I was thrilled to know that Ernest Cline had a sequel in the works. … Continue reading Ready Player Two

The Eyes of the Dragon

The Eyes of the Dragon Stephen King 1987 Slowly making my way through Stephen King's bibliography, I've come to The Eyes of the Dragon. In reality, I should have read it some time ago since I'm trying to accomplish this feat by reading novels in the order in which they were originally published. When I … Continue reading The Eyes of the Dragon

The 2010s: A Decade in Review

Today is the last day of 2019 and, therefore, the last day of the 2010s. What can we say about the decade that was? I'll be honest... 2010 doesn't feel like it was 10 years ago. Though, I suppose the older I get, the faster time seems to go by. I'll be 40 years old … Continue reading The 2010s: A Decade in Review
