If you haven't seen the remake of A-team, I encourage you to check that one out. This movie takes the old series and does it even better. All the characters are great--and they make a great team. There are multiple laugh-out-loud lines and gags along with a mostly good plot.
The seventh book in Louise Penny's Three Pines series was released in August. I am surprised to discover I haven't reviewed her books before this! From her very first book, Penny became a favorite author and has remained so with each addition to the series. The setting is a tiny village of Québec south of Montréal with a disproportionate share of creative geniuses and artful curmudgeons. And also, as a character in A trick of the light puts it,
Out of control is the first in The Kincaid brides series. That title says right off that this is a romance. It is also published by Christian publisher Bethany House, so I knew before I started to expect a faith-based narrative. And it was, but not in a preachy, overdone way. The characters were believable as they encouraged one another.
DVD review: Priest
Most people think Priest is a horror movie. If I had known that, I wouldn't have watched it. But it really isn't. Yes, it's a dark vampire movie, but it just isn't scary enough to be horror. It's a dark dystopian setting in an alternate reality where mankind has fought Vampire Wars for millenia, until now vamps are on reservations, the world is practically destroyed, and people live in huge cities ruled by the Church.
Beware--if you have a snake phobia, you may not want to read the book Awakening.
It has some creepy snake moments. Personally, I like snakes--grew up with them. I can remember sharing the back seat with a rattlesnake in a cage. Fun times. I also remember a car trip when my mom woke up with baby snakes (nonvenomous) crawling across her. Quick stop, lots of fussing.
