Well, as usual I am way behind with my reviews. I had forgotten how time consuming it is to have a girlfriend. Not that that is a bad thing but still, I don’t get as much time to do my usual stuff as I used to. Continue reading My latest reads.
This is going to be one of those posts where I go against the mainstream but my reaction when I watched this movie was: You got to be f… kidding me? Continue reading Joker: Is this a bloody joke?
The writing is quite decent and overall this was a rather entertaining book. Not more than 3 out of 5 stars entertaining but still enough for me to put the next one in the series on my to-read list. Continue reading Steel Dragon: Hmm, not fantastic but not too bad either.
This, quite frankly, is one of those remakes that really, in my opinion, serves little purpose. Apart from a show of technology it ads absolutely nothing to the original movie. Rather the inverse. Continue reading Lion King (2019): An exercise in technology that lacks the charm of the original.
Last month I attended a ceremony…celebrating my 25 year at CERN’s. Continue reading 25 f… years!
Here we go again with the usual clean up of reviews that I haven’t gotten around to write and I really wan’t to get them out of the way before the end of the year to nurture the illusion that NEXT year I will start with a clean slate and keep my reading and reviews going. Continue reading End of the year clean up
This is a solid installment in the series even though, with only about 250 pages, it is perhaps somewhat shorter than most of the previous books. Nevertheless I found the story great. Continue reading All Quiet on the Second Front?: Solid installment in the series.
If this hadn’t been a cool giant monster movie with a lot of special effects I would have scored it a lot lower. However, I am a sucker for these kinds of movies and I really like Godzilla. Continue reading Godzilla King of the Monsters: Better than the 2014 movie.
Let’s make one thing perfectly clear. This is a movie you watch for the action and not much less. But then, that not really a surprise is it? Continue reading John Wick 3 Parabellum: Great although rather unrealistic action.
So, obviously, I really liked this book. It is a bit of a mix between political power play and good old-fashioned “communication” with battleship guns. Continue reading Shield of Terra: Great 2nd installment in the Light of Terra series.
This series is, possibly with the exception of Echoes of Glory, really my kind of military science fiction. They do not really manage to get to a five out of five rating but they are mostly solid four out of five star ones. Continue reading Cauldron of Fire & Dauntless: My kind of military sci-fi.
Apart from the unbelievable monstrosity, the story is not really bad. Overall I have to say that I enjoyed the book even though it had some flaws. Continue reading From Hell: Neither good nor bad installment in the Alex Hunter series.
This is one of those books that is more fiction than science. It is a decent enough adventure story but it is at times somewhat silly and superficial. Continue reading The Messenger: Decent sci-fi adventure.
I have to say that it was a fairly enjoyable read. A decent start for this new urban fantasy series. Continue reading Born of Metal: Decent enough start of a new urban fantasy series.
Unfortunately I have to say that, as a whole, this series was quite a disappointment. It started off reasonably well and I was quite exited as the prospect of a new fleet action series with a outstanding hero kicking alien arse. Then it started to go downhill. Continue reading Legacy Fleet Series 1-6: Quite a disappointment.
I actually found this movie to be not to bad actually. It is far from a cinematic masterpiece but it is a pretty solid action/revenge movie Continue reading American Assassin: Not too bad actually.
The story of the entire series is doubtlessly a bit weird. I mean, an alien machine race opposed to all (biological) life wants to destroy humanity so it turns some of them into super-humans. Weird right? Continue reading Semper Fi: The story of the series is bit weird but fairly entertaining read.
When reading this book I was really having a WOW moment because I was reminded of how far above most (not all but most) other authors that I read this author’s writing really is Continue reading House of Assassins: Only one word necessary, great.
Despite the less than stellar ratings this movie has received I have to say that I quite liked it actually. Continue reading Hellboy (2019): I quite liked it actually.
