Now Borrowing: Gunslinger Girl

Now Borrowing: Gunslinger Girl

  Quick Take: Gunslinger Girl centers around Serendipity “Pity” Jones. A seventeen-year-old facing the outside world and her own limitations head-on. She’s struggling while surrounded by people who are exactly who you believe them to be. As her world evolves, every moment drives the overall storyline in unexpected directions.

Now Borrowing: The Murders of Molly Southbourne

I’ve been on reading restriction (thank you rude migraine disorder) for a while and it’s put a cramp in my insatiable need to read. Enter tor.com publishing novellas to save the day.

I like westerns. Well, usually westerns with a large amount of cowboying and violence. You know, the good ones. Blame my father and his […]

Now Watching: The Greatest Showman | Movie Review

Now Watching: The Greatest Showman | Movie Review

Quick Take: The Greatest Showman deftly tells the story of a charming hustler intent on bringing his dreams to vivid (and profitable) life. The character at the center of the action is, Phineas Taylor Barnum (Hugh Jackman) best known as P.T. Barnum. The Greatest Showman‘s a story told with a deliberately light dramatic touch and bombastic savoir-faire. It’s less […]

Now Watching: ‘Bright’ | Netfilx

Now Watching: ‘Bright’ | Netfilx

Quick Take: Bright is a jumbled story that doesn’t know what it wants to be. With haphazard action sequences, uneven plot progression, and extremely shallow of character development, Bright never fully gels. It’s kinda fun…ish but never makes you believe. Good urban fantasy calls for exciting world-building, thrilling action, vivid storytelling, and a (sur)realistic environment. It’s a genre that effortlessly […]
