Tides of the Dark Crystal (2018) – J.M. Lee

The third volume of the Dark Crystal novels continues to interweave with the Netflix series, Age of Resistance, even though some of the details are different. That doesn’t detract from the story, it just another version of the telling, perhaps a song told by Kylan the Gelfling as I join him, Naia, Tavra, Amri of…

Song of the Dark Crystal (2017) – J.M. Lee

The second novel in The Dark Crystal series by J.M.

Chaplin (1992) Richard Attenborough

As I return to DK Canada’s The Movie Book, the next film they highlight is the Chaplin classic, City Lights. That is a title I’d previously reviewed, and so I dove write into What Else to Watch, as I had already reviewed his key movies, and the first one on the list I hadn’t previously…
