This is kind of a prequel and a sequel to Snow White and The Huntsman. It is not as impressive as the first movie but quite good anyway. I would call it a nice family movie although probably not for the youngest members of the family.
This installment of The Frontiers Saga did not really work for me. I know this is rather personal and subjective but I just do not like back-flashes and the majority of this book is a back-flash.
This book is rather different from a lot of books that I have read. The story is not that uncommon: A lone child with special powers adventures into space. However, her powers and how they develop is rather unique and so is the setting. I really liked it.
Kung Fu Panda 3 is about what you would expect. A roller coaster ride of gags, goof ups and outrageous martial art outbursts.
This is a really, really good animated family movie. It is a perfect blend of funny characters, decent story and little jokes spread around in the animation.
The Lost Planet is more of the intrigues and scheming by Ludendorff and Strand. I felt the main story, the Swarm, got drowned by the vendetta between these two Methusaleh Men. This book was more fun to read than the previous one in the series but I still felt there was too much focus on nefarious schemes and backstabbing.
This is without a doubt a very good family movie. Many people seem to compare it unfavorably with the "original" animated movie from Walt Disney. To me these are quite different movies and should not really be compared. I have not read the book but I have a feeling that this movie follows the book more closely. It is a wee bit darker, more serious and incredibly beautiful to watch.
This book was my kind of story. It is well written with lots of likable characters. It has plenty of action and the bad guys gets quite a few surprises, in particular from the "primitive" humans.
Although this book series is perhaps the one from Raymond L. Weil that I like the least it is still good and entertaining book. I have a bit of a problem with this Profiteer concept and the parody of a free market it depicts. The privateers are a bit like the Ferengi (which I never liked) but more violent and nasty.
This book was quite fun to read. At times it is perhaps a bit nonsensical, even childish, but on the whole I liked both the story and the main character.
I have to say that I felt this book to be the weakest in the series so far. Captain Maddox and his friends are back and the good Captain is mostly as enjoyable as usual. Unfortunately it takes some time for the story to get going and the internal monologues of the sex starved pilot Keith was downright embarrassing.
Be warned, this is another one of my rant posts. Rude words can be expected. Fed up with fucking bloatware? Well I for one is really tired of all the fucking bloatware that manufacturers install on their devices before shipping them. It is sooo tiresome to have to spend hours to clean up your new device the first thing you do. And sometimes the manufacturers try to prevent you from removing their crap as well!
