Caliban's War - Book Review

Spaceships!
I'm a huge sucker for spaceships. I love science fiction and fantasy but my absolute favorite stories involve space travel. I don't know why, maybe it's growing up with Star Trek and Star Wars.

The 2nd book in the Expanse series gives us enough space ship stuff to scratch that itch. Plus bad mutants, dirty politicians and powered armor marines. There's a lot to love here.

What's better is the Syfy channel is making a TV show out of this series. I really need a good spaceship show, I can't think of any good ones on right now.

I already reviewed the first book in this series, I recommend this one for anyone that liked the first one. The next book I'm reading will be the 3rd book in this series. Abaddon's Gate. They are a perfect way for me to clear my head after a day of answering legal questions and writing about superheroes, they allow me to shut down a little and sleep better.

Highly recommended.

Furious 7 - Quick Movie Review

Very Pretty.
Just got back from this movie. Popcorn season has officially started and I'm totally pumped!

Not going to yammer on too long about this one. This is the 7th entry in this franchise, you probably already know what you are getting into. Fast cars. Lots of insanely hot actors. Action. More action. Tough guy talk. Tough girl talk. More action. Boom! Wait...I think I see a plot hole, never mind BLLAAAAAAMMMMO!!!!! OMG CRASH. Fist fight. Cars with 8 gears. More stuff blowing up.

This movie is exactly what you want in an action flick.

PS: The Rock's shoulders are as big as a human head. Seriously. Just watch the movie. Remember when he was trying to cut down and be smaller for Hollywood. I'm glad he quit that idea. That dude's shoulders are the most impressive special effect in the movie, a movie that spent millions on special effects.
