Something to Do: Movies

It is finally time for the release of Home, the animated adventure about cute aliens trying to find a world of their own… without much luck. The unluckiest is Oh, who may have accidentally destroyed their original homeworld, and a number of the other ones they were hoping to take over. Now he is on [...]

Something to Do: Movies

This week we get Insurgent, the second story in the Divergent series. The Divergent trilogy (which seems to have either 4 or 5 books in it) is a YA series written by Veronica Roth, full of action and adventure. Since it was so popular it became a good choice for converting into a series of [...]

We Lost Pratchett

I am very sad to know we lost Terry Pratchett, the author who created Disc World and so many wonderful characters and situations. His web site is down at the moment (probably crashed the server from so many hits), but the BBC announcement mentions a few facts that most authors can only dream of. 70 [...]

Sagan, Hawking, and Clarke; the Conversation

This amazing video has a conversation between Carl Sagan, Stephen Hawking, and Arthur C. Clarke. I was alive when this was recorded, and I had actually spoken with Sagan before this point, so I am sorry I missed this historic chat in person. Luckily there were cameras rolling, so I get to enjoy the event [...]

Something to Do: Movies

There are two very good choices this time around. The one I want to see first is Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb; the third film in the Museum trilogy takes place at the British Museum this time, and once more looks to be a world of fun. Also this week The Hobbit: [...]

7th Son Trailer

Seventh Son is a nice looking fantasy adventure which should be on the big screen around February 6th. The film is based on Joseph Delaney’s book series The Last Apprentice, also called Spooks. I am looking forward to this one, and I think I have time to catch up with all the books before I [...]

The Librarians are coming!

The Librarians arrive on Sunday, December 7th on TNT, and I am so ready for this series! TNT were behind the original movies series this is based on, and I loved those movies because of the way they blended silly with action, and for the excellent premise. I am setting my DVR now, so I [...]

Something to Watch: Discs

In Movies we have The Giver, the story of a boy living in an peaceful, idealistic world; or so he thinks. When he get assigned as the Receiver of Memory for his people he learns things are quite different, and a lot more fragile, then he thought. This is based on the best selling YA [...]

Something to Do: Movies

The winner this week is The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, the next installment in the Hunger Games saga. They had to break this one into two pieces, not because the book was huge, but because so much of the story happened off the page and was just mentioned as something the primary characters [...]

Into The Woods; another trailer

With an amazing cast, the Disney film Into The Woods twists together some of the Brothers Grimm tales in ways the original authors never envisioned. It will be hitting the big screen December 25th, and I intend to be in the theater for it on opening day.
