Movie Review: Terminator Genisys

I loved the original Terminator and several of the sequels. This one though, I wasn’t sure what to expect. This one had the same flavor as the originals, but more of a romance theme and quite a bit more humor than the originals. I did get some good laughs out of it. Watching Arnold fight his

Movie Review: John Wick

I was told to watch this movie and being the obedient person that I am…I put it off. Saturday I finally watched it while doing laundry, because I needed something to do that didn’t involve working. It’s a 2014 release, so I don’t want to hear any complaints about spoilers. You’ve had more than enough

Movie Review: Voiceless

Saturday night I went to a private screening of Voiceless. Normally, I avoid movies like this, because they are usually poorly done. But, I was lured there by movie popcorn, a free ticket and a trailer that looked okay. I was still hesitant. I went in not expecting much. Okay, actually I expected bad acting,

Review: For All Their Wars Are Merry

For All Their Wars Are Merry: An Examination of Irish Rebel Songs is one of those books that makes history interesting and fun. Well for me anyway. I am a quarter Irish and I have the freckles and pastey white skin that burns rather than tans to prove it. My family emigrated to the US

Movie Review: Ben-Hur

I went to see the new Ben-Hur starring Jack Huston as Judah Ben-Hur and Tony Kebbell as Messala. It was okay. It reminded me more of a soap opera than a movie. The acting was too melodramatic in parts, some scenes were disjointed and the scenery and costumes were too beautiful. The original theme for
