REVIEWS

BOOK
  • The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - I really enjoyed this book. The movie was so-so, but the book goes much deeper into life in the "Districts." The feeling of being watched while going through this horrible situation is striking. It also adds a whole new layer to the movie since some things are unexplained in the film (ex. Mocking Jays). I'm debating whether I should read the second novel before or after the film. (Recommended)
  • Modesty Blaise: The Girl in the Iron Mask by Peter O'Donnell - I'd never hear of this comic strip series, but not because it's not popular. It was adapted into films in 1966, 1982, and 2003 and a series of 13 novels and short story collections, beginning in 1965. The strips are really well done. My favorite is the first story, Fiona, which highlights a small hospital in Africa forced to accept medicine from a drug dealer. Modesty is an awesome character and has rip-roaring action. (Recommended)*
TV
  • Doctor Who "Hide" (Season 7, Ep. 9) - This was a so-so episode until the ending, which saved it for me. I'm not going to spoil it, but it's a classic twist. The Doctor is still trying to figure out Clara and is no closer than before. (3 1/2 out of 4 stars)
  • Revolution "The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia" (Season 2, Ep. 14) - We finally get a look outside of the "Monroe District" and go to the "Georgia Federation" to chase the nuclear device. We learn a shocking episode from Miles past and learn the full implications of what will happen if the disable the nanobots and turn the electricity back on. This show is getting less sucky by the week. (4 out of 5 stars)

The new site doesn't look too different, which I suppose is good. I fear change. And it lists me as the top commenter. Hurray!
