Columbia Screening Pass-palooza: “Spider-Man: Homecoming”!

Hey there Marvel fans!  Are you ready for some cool web-slinging action?  ME TOO.  I’ve got passes for the COLUMBIA, MARYLAND showing of Spider-Man: Homecoming!  Synopsis!

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming.  Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

Ready for fun Tony Stark/Peter Parker bonding, and getting to see Michael Keaton suit up again (this time as a baddie)? C’mon! Continue reading

TrailerWatch: the Bellas come together for “Pitch Perfect 3″(new poster too!)

“I would do anything to sing with you guys again. ANYTHING.”

The poster says it all.  One last hurrah for the Bellas, and I acca-can’t believe it.  Synopsis!

Now graduated from college and out in the real world where it takes more than a cappella to get by, the Bellas return in Pitch Perfect 3, the next chapter in the beloved series. After the highs of winning the World Championships, the Bellas find themselves split apart and discovering there aren’t job prospects for making music with your mouth. But when they get the chance to reunite for an overseas USO tour, this group of awesome nerds will come together to make some music, and some questionable decisions, one last time.

I love the usual Pitch Perfect blend of kickass swag soundtrack and glorious dialogue. Plus, Rebel Wilson FTW!

Pitch Perfect 3 is scheduled to hit theaters this Christmas.

Movie News: “Jurassic World” sequel is a “Fallen Kingdom”

Click on the image for the full-size glory!

The Jurassic World sequel now has an official title: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. And if that isn’t sending a little chill down your spine, you’re dead inside. DEAD.

Fallen Kingdom will see the return of Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and BD Wong.  But what I’m very interested to see is the return of Jeff Goldblum’s mathematician and Chaos Theory specialist, Ian Malcolm.  Can’t wait to see the deadpan Malcom spar with Pratt’s equally cheeky Owen.  #LetsGetReadyToRumble

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is scheduled for a June, 2018 release.  RAWR!

Goodreads review: “Taming the Beast” (True Mates #5) by Alicia Montgomery

Yeah, sometimes I’ll just rip a review straight off of what I wrote over at Goodreads. It happens.

I typically don’t like jumping into a series. I’m the kinda gal who likes to start from Book One and go straight on through ’til morning. (Sometimes quite literally.) But when this was offered as an Amazon freebie, who was I to say no? And I’m glad I bit.

Author Montgomery crafts an intriguing mythology that had me wishing I’d started from the first book in the series. And well, beginning from the…beginning would have helped me keep all the various character names straight, as I’m crap with names. (But it’s nice to see that even the author pokes fun at the large stable of characters, with one in particular lamenting it “made his head hurt trying to remember who was who.” I’m right there with you, buddy! Perhaps we can form a support group?) Getting to know the various couples would have cemented them in my ol’ noggin easily, I’m sure. Especially since Montgomery keeps things rolling along nicely, with lively, believable dialogue and just enough thrills and action. Continue reading
