Btw, I regret not seeing Avengers in the theater. Who knew? I sure didn't think it was going to be the unique ensemble it was.
Iron Man 3
I worship at the altar of Special Effects. This one has that and then some. High marks for the soundtrack also. It was so good I downloaded it as a writing companion.
One of the best praises a writer can hear is when their characters grow. Iron Man 3 gets accolades from me on that point.
Another thumbs up for any film or book is when it leaves its audience wondering. This film stayed with me. Very thought provoking. I love that.
No spoilers here but dang, I will say that Pepper Potts is one cool lass.
Star Trek, Into the Darkness
Seeing the Enterprise with the accompanied music is enough to bring me figuratively to my knees.But then I've had a case of verklempt since the first Star Trek movie in the seventies.
Lots of action in JJ Abrams version of Star Trek. Doesn’t stop for nuthin’. I did have some issues with it though. Maybe because I guessed most of the revelations. Or maybe I felt it was a case of redux.
Can’t say I was disappointed though. Not at all. Loved it from start to finish.
Prolific writers are few and far between. Find one who is not only good at his craft but also willing to speak about writing is almost unheard of. That is Stephen King.
Check out the article written about him in Sunday’s Parade magazine. I love seeing how our idols do their magic.
