Sunday Books And Video

It’s been awhile since I did a post on books and video. Thought I would try and get back to that.

Books wise I finished

  • Echoes From the Moon (The Token Book One) by Nathan Hystad
  • Nurse Alissa vs. the Zombies X: Endgame by Scott M. Baker. Satisfactory ending to the series. Not particularly memorable, but, not disappointing
  • Irregular Scout Team One: Volume 2 by J.F. Holmes. Really digging this zombie series, will be reading the 3rd book soon.
  • And just started Obsidian Gate (Homeworld Lost Book 7) by J.N. Chaney (I’m also reading another series of his) and Scott Moon

For movies since last Sunday on Amazon

  • I started Final Summer, boring
  • Started Burning, did not make it through. It might have a good rating, but, it was just a bad 80’s slasher
  • Started the 1959 Hound Of The Baskervilles. It was OK, only made it about 20 minutes in, got a little bored
  • We Might Hurt Each Other. We also might turn that off early. Same with The Haunting Lodge
  • Watched Jeruzalem again. I really like that one.

On Netflix

  • I rewatched the Fear Street trilogy, good stuff
  • Started Choose Or Die. Lame
  • Finished Ready Player One. Second time I saw that, 1st was when it was released
  • Countdown was a cool movie. Nothing you have to think about, just watch and enjoy.

On Tubi

  • Tried Gods Of The Deep. It’s as bad as reviews say. Bad acting, bad script, bad cinematography. Did not finish
  • Was watching The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 today. Have about 20 minutes left, not sure if I’ll finish. The constant laughing, which I guess was supposed to evil, was bad and annoying. It is missing all the stuff that made the original great. Almost no slashing going on.

On Hulu

  • Tried Offseason. Stupid. Didn’t make it far
  • Made it most of the way through Europa Report. I’ve seen it before, it’s pretty good.
  • Watched all of Ghostbuster last night. As good as always
  • Watched Dune between last night and this morning. It’s OK. Filming is gorgeous, but, the acting is rather dull. Hoping part 2 does gangbusters so they make more of the Dune books into movies

TV wise

  • Finished Futurama early in week. Hoping they do more (Hulu)
  • Started Tiny House Hunting (Hulu). I love these shows. The best is when the buyers are like “the fridge is so tiny!” “No stove, only a burner?” “Wow, the loft bedroom is tiny”. Um, yeah, you wanted a tiny home.
  • Watching some of Monty Pythons Flying Circus (Netflix), always good
  • A little bit of Manifest (Netflix). It’s hard, because it is overly-drama. There’s no fun involved. No laughter.
  • And, Survivor returned Wednesday. Digging that. I’m rooting for Soda, because she said she practiced making fire. It always kills me that people don’t usually do that. Or know what they can eat in Fiji. How to catch fish. Make a shack. Do puzzles. Swim. Same with The Amazing Race, which starts the 13th. You know there will be challenges involved heights, sometimes extreme ones. Dancing. Puzzles. Water. Driving a stick shift. Navigating. You should know this.

Anything y’all are reading or watching?

    Tokyo Vice on Max
    Shogun, ok
    Masters of Air, fair but they are about to introduce the Red Tails, so that will be pure fiction. The B17s had to shoot at them as they tried to hid in the box.

    Les Norton – One season mini series streaming on Plex and Tubi. It’s an 80s throwback about a big lug who for reasons escapes the countryside for the big city and gets pulled into the underworld. Rebel Wilson is amazing in this, and in every other role I’ve seen her in I can’t stand Rebel Wilson. This show nails her talents in a minor role

  4. Facts Matter says:

    Books to read……Jonathan Livingston Seagull. The greatest inspirational short book I have ever read and quite entertaining as well.

    1984. I never get tired of this book because it reminds me of Reagans words. “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

    If you want to read a true classic then My favorite is…… The Count of Monte Cristo….superb for an old school classic that we had to read in High School

    Forgot one, Slow Horses. The Apple version is great and a different take on spies. Acting is something else. The books are actually better than the media version.

  6. Good stuff, folks, good stuff. I recommended an old classic to a coworker who’s a so so reader, but, loves old stuff, The Once And Future King

  7. Professor Hale says:

    Science: The making of the Atomic Bomb.
    History: Churchill’s the History of the English Speaking Peoples.
    Fantasy: Watership Down.
    Expansive Sci-Fi: Dune Series
    Math: Dixit’s Thinking Strategically
    Sociology: Carnegie’s How to Win friends and influence people. Most notable line, “You cannot win an argument”. Read it and see if you still care about the latest things H and Jeff are saying.
