Walk the Line (2005) – James Mangold

Joaquin Phoenix brings the legendary Man in Black, Johnny Cash to life in this biographical drama that is the next recommendation from the Great Movies – 100 Years of Film book following my screening of The Sound of Music. The film gives an unflinching look at the life and times of the musician, from his…

Champion (2013) – Marie Lu

Marie Lu’s Legend trilogy comes to a conclusion on this week’s Book Shelf. A Young Adult series that isn’t quite dystopian in nature, but flirts at its edges with a United States torn into two halves, the Republic and the Colonies.

Legend (2011) – Marie Lu

  Thanks to my Sweetie, Amanda, this book found it’s way into my hands, and I was more than happy to dig into it, I do love a good book, and as always there seems to be lots of fun storytelling going on in the ‘young adult’ genre. Legend takes us to the future, a…

6 Degrees of Hell (2012) – Joe Raffa

  Releasing from Anchor Bay today is this little horror film, that I’m sorry to say, is probably best left unseen. Part advertisement for an actual place, the Hotel of Horror, check it out here, and part, what feels like some poorly written and edited Fox television show from the 90s, 6 Degrees of Hell…

The Expanse #5: Nemesis Game (2015) – James S.A. Corey

  It’s been a look time since last year’s adventure with the crew of the Roci. This waiting until June just seems to take too long. But its books like these that makes it worth it. I dove right back into the world that the authors created. I have missed these characters, and we get…

The Newsroom: Season 2

  HBO knows how much I love my Aaron Sorkin dramas, and were kind enough to let me catch up on a Season 2 blu-ray before the third and final season (sad sigh) is released in June. So this past weekend, I settled in to watch the 9 episode season, and relive all those fantastic…

Burlington Toy Con – June 2 2013!!

Sue and I were completely enthralled and taken in by our experience at the Burlington Toy Convention that we attended in March. We both love toys, and geek out over a lot of similar things, so we knew going in that we were going to have a lot of fun. But we honestly had no…
