Omega Sub 1-3

  This book series is about a futuristic submarine filled to the brim with the manliest men that all men wish they could be and all women would give anything to be with. It’s your typical early 90’s post apocalyptic story with every character acting as some form of Mary Sue, which was great for teenage me.   I read the first couple books back in my youth when they were first coming out and lost track of the series, which unfortunately there were only six books written.  According to GoodReads, JD Cameron is a pseudonym used by Michael Jahn with...

Life

Life is a sci-fi thriller about an International Space crew whose mission turns to one of primal fear after discovering a terrifying life form. For better or worse, this was exactly the movie I thought it was going to be. Have you seen Gravity? Good, then you’re familiar with the set they used for Life. Have you seen any space based alien horror film? Then you’re familiar with all the movie tropes that were used here. The creature design was acceptable, the acting was acceptable with the exception of Jake Gyllenhaal, who was cosplaying as a four year old in...

Earth is forgotten. A new empire arises, the Interdependency, based on the doctrine that no one human outpost can survive without the others.

Assassin’s Creed

Michael Fassbender stars in this action-adventure film based on the acclaimed video game franchise about a man who discovers he’s a descendant of an ancient line of Assassins. While enjoyable there’s too little emotion and too many foggy scenes where everyone is shrouded in smoke. I’d like to see this in 4kHDR just to really get a good feel for what they intended the audiences to see vs what I could actually make out. As with any movie that’s been condensed and distilled from much larger source material, the story feels rushed and has too many interesting things happening all...

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

From Lucasfilm comes an epic adventure – Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. My third time viewing this and by golly it’s just good of a movie at home as it was in IMAX. That final get away scene still gives me chills!

The Player of Games

The Culture – a human/machine symbiotic society – has thrown up many great Game Players, and one of the greatest is Gurgeh. Jernau Morat Gurgeh. The Player of Games. Master of every board, computer and strategy. Bored with success, Gurgeh travels to the Empire of Azad, cruel and incredibly wealthy, to try their fabulous game…a game so complex, so like life itself, that the winner becomes emperor. Mocked, blackmailed, almost murdered, Gurgeh accepts the game, and with it the challenge of his life – and very possibly his death. Easy to get through, but it had a pretty heavy ending....
