When the Heavenly Battle Comes Down to Earth

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

Xenophobia: Blaming the Stranger Among Us

Where the Crawdads Sing (2022) This film is based on the 2018 coming of age book with the same title by Delia Owens. It’s not based on a true story (how could it?) and, in my opinion, it’s an allegory … Continue reading

The Daughter of the King is Dead

Lisa Marie Presley (February 1, 1968 – January 12, 2023) Like everyone else on the planet, I am shocked by, but not surprised about, the death of Lisa Marie Presley. They say that one shouldn’t ignore the warning signs of … 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

I Think He Understands the Matrix Perfectly Well

Keanu Reeves (September 2, 1964) I was reading a Facebook post about Keanu Reeves‘ philanthropy, today. We all know about him, but we presume so much when it comes to his feelings of compassion and empathy. He’s one-of-a-kind. Ah, the … Continue reading

The Dapper Young Man in the Rolling Stones

Charlie Watts (June 2, 1941 – August 24, 2021) I got this book for Christmas. On my own, I probably wouldn’t have bought it for myself. Why? I’m not really a fan of the Rolling Stones, so reading about their … Continue reading

Maybe This isn’t as Far-Fetched as You Might Imagine

The Peripheral (Season 1 – 2022) Normally, I stay away from way ‘out-there’ TV shows, because they take so long to get anywhere and I’m always left with a feeling of being let down by the ending. This show is … Continue reading

Harry & Meghan (2022) Now that the second half of this series has been broadcast on Netflix, we have the whole story. But it isn’t pretty to witness. In fact, a couple of times I was close to tears when … Continue reading
