Just a gathering

of my book

and movie reviews

from recent years.

These are my Book and Movie reviews I have written for Goodreads, Amazon, and IMDb. I will try to add a few every day. They are mostly Women’s fiction and mysteries in books, because that’s what I read now. In movies, I usually only review TV movies, where my thoughts don’t get lost in the shuffle among hundreds of others. Most of what I read and watch have one thing in common: They have upbeat hopeful endings with justice prevailing and closure achieved. Call me crazy.

I’m so glad Astrid and Nick’s final meeting with Ah Ma went so well and they were on … Continue reading Rich People Problems

Perfect on Paper

Good Script Wasted This one could have been so much better. It had some potential. Comic potential (the party scene where our heroine was starving and kept trying to get to some food); some potential for the always entertaining ugly duckling into a swan; a great old star (Morgan Fairchild) playing the powerful nemesis that … Continue reading Perfect on Paper
