Book Review – The Midnight Library

Author: Matt Haig Year: 2020 I don’t read many modern novels, preferring classics to trends, old sci-fi to new releases, even re-reads to trying new things.  That’s often a negative, I’m sure, not giving recent authors a chance, it just feels to me that there is so much I missed, so much I need to

Movie Review – Speed

Director: Jan de Bont Starring: Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bullock, Dennis Hopper Year: 1994 With equal measure how much we think we enjoyed it then and how much we’ve built it up in our minds since, Speed has become a great movie in our collective memory.  Keanu, Sandra, working together to fool a madman, some awesome

Director: Frank Darabont Starring: Thomas Jane, Laurie Holden, Jeffrey DeMunn Year: 2007 Based on a Stephen King short story, The Mist is a cool concept poorly produced, like something that sounds good in your mind but gets you in trouble when you blurt it out.  Darabont works almost exclusively in King stories, directing and adapting,
