Night Sky (2022) If you’re a senior, this TV show (on Amazon Prime) may appeal to you. Otherwise, it may seem boring. The first teleportation flight we witness in episode one is their 856th (or at least that’s what I … Continue reading

It’s Only a Novel, but It Means a Lot to Me

Tiberius Julius Alexander I fell asleep, last night, thinking about this (potential) past life of mine. It’s been almost two years since I finally discovered his existence. I wondered how and what he thinks of me. He seems to have … Continue reading

Spiritual Warriors Aren’t Always Peaceful Ones

Infinite (2021) We watched this movie on Amazon Prime last night. Susan suggested it since it’s about reincarnation. There are a couple of ‘official’ trailers on YouTube, so you might want to look at them, too, before you make up … Continue reading

Hercule Poirot, He is Not, but It’s Still Fun

Glass Onion (2022) About an hour in, I wonder if this was a “Ten Little Indians/And Then There Were None” remake, but I was wrong. It’s much more fun than that. Glass Onion is the second film in this newly … Continue reading

Subtle Clue? She’s “Home Alone” Too

Enola Holmes 2 (2022) I know, I know, I’ve hinted at the anagram Enola being “Alone” in reverse before. So, what do I think of this second instalment? Not much: I was bored by the fifteen-minute mark. Obviously, I am … Continue reading

Who Says You Cannot Know When You’ll Die?

Final Destination (2000) The idea that your death is predestined is the premise behind this film (and the other films in the franchise). You cannot ‘cheat death’ although we like to think we can: when your number’s up, it’s up. … Continue reading

His Last Novel, Published Posthumously

Silverview (2021) The fact that I didn’t know this one existed until a whole year later means that, since John le CarrĂ©’s death in 2020, the publicity machine must have abated somewhat. I read it in one day, all 215 … Continue reading
