If you want to know more about Padme and her handmaidens, Queen’s Shadow is definitely the book you’re looking for. There’s not a lot of action and excitement, and it’s definitely a slower paced story, but the character exploration keeps it interesting. In this book you get to dive into Padme’s head and find out what her reasoning is, who she is as a person, and why she does the things she does. You also get to find out who the handmaidens are and what their role is in all of this. It makes for an interesting book. Click here to read our full review.

Movie Review: ‘Pet Semetary’

April 6, 2019 at 8:01 pm | Posted in Movies, Reviews | Leave a comment

The remake of Pet Sematary is interesting. On one hand, it’s a remake of the original, which was actually a really good movie. On the other hand, it’s a different take on the story. The plot elements play out differently enough that this is a different experience. In that way, it’s also made specifically for those who have seen the original as some of the big moments are deliberately played out the same, then twist in a different direction in order to surprise those viewers.

For horror fans, it’s an enjoyable flick. The casting is great and everyone does a good job with their parts. Especially Jeté Laurence who plays the daughter, Ellie. There’s a good, creepy resonance throughout the film and it stays on track pretty well. It doesn’t rely on jump scares, but instead builds creepy scenes to spook you out. The ending fits in with that overall theme to make a good horror experience. If you haven’t seen the original, and you see this one first, I imagine you’ll enjoy it a lot. I’m going to go into spoilers from here, so stop at your own peril. Continue Reading Movie Review: ‘Pet Semetary’…

Movie Review: ‘Captain Marvel’

March 29, 2019 at 12:43 am | Posted in Movies, Reviews | Leave a comment

So I finally managed to catch Captain Marvel while it’s still on the big screen and I enjoyed it. I wouldn’t put it in my top ten Marvel movies, but it’s fun, there’s lots of action, and there’s some good characters moments. The story…it’s a little sloppy, and honestly, it’s the weakness of the movie, but it’s not that bad. At this point all of the Marvel movies are kind of must see as part of the focus on Avengers, Infinity War and Endgame. From that perspective, is it something you still have to see? Yes.

Keeping light on spoilers, you learn who Captain Marvel is and what her powers are in this movie. That’s going to be a necessity for Endgame and getting the most enjoyment out of her character. Without the groundwork laid in this movie, there’s no telling how Endgame will play out if that’s your first exposure to the character. However, seeing Captain Marvel also requires some homework. Before you go see this movie, you’re going to want to watch Guardians of the Galaxy. Some of the races/species, characters, ships and technology from that movie play a role in this one. It’s a connected universe and it’s constantly building off itself, which means those shared elements have more value if you’ve seen the whole story behind them.
