Spotlight On: The Bone Witch

Spotlight On: The Bone Witch

Back in December I was browsing through my NetGalley emails (as book reviewers are known to do) and came across one with a book cover that was just beautiful: Then I saw the comparison description: Memoirs of a Geisha meets The Name of the Wind.  But the teaser quote really sealed the deal: “Let me […]

Now Borrowing: Silence Fallen

Now Borrowing: Silence Fallen

Overall Review: In Silence Fallen, Patricia Briggs takes things in the Tri-Cities to a whole new level. This is a fresh adventure introducing new depth to previously secondary characters (everyone’s got a boogie man), a greater understanding of the inner workings of the new order of the day in the neutral zone, and as ever […]

Now Borrowing: The Dead Seekers

Now Borrowing: The Dead Seekers

Overall Review: This is a unique revenge tale that takes an abrupt turn when life and new enemies intrude.

Now, I freely admit that I am absurdly enamored with Tom Hardy; after watching him rise inexplicably from what appeared to […]

Now Watching: Get Out

Now Watching: Get Out

Imma just put this out there, Jordan Peele’s directorial debut got me all kinds of f*cked up… Get Out starts with a satirical take on highly recognizable situation to lull you into a false sense of smugness; comfortable that you know exactly what this film has in store. And like all good horror movies, before […]

Now Watching: Logan

Now Watching: Logan

Logan: The Superhero Movie You Didn’t Know You Wanted  The year is 2029 and Logan (Hugh Jackman) and Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) seem to be living off the grid and barely getting by. From all appearances, the mutant/human detente is over and the tipping point wasn’t in mutants’ favor. This is a world without mutants […]
