Sea Ghost (49%)

With Billy Warlock, Jim Thorburn, Kiara Hunter It appears that this movie might have cost quite a lot, but a good film isn’t all about the money.  I think this would have been a much better film if all the … Continue reading

The McClane Apocalypse: Book 1, by Kate Morris

This is not really a disaster book, and there’s no trace of ‘apocalypse’ in Book 1.  Really, it’s a romance novel, and a very vague disaster scenario serves the purpose of bringing a few strangers together at the beginning.  From there, … Continue reading

Solar Destruction (79%)

Tracey Gold & Michelle Clunie I thought this movie was far better than the sum of its parts.  My teenaged daughter and I were totally enthralled.  There are some laughs, some tension, some corny moments, and an awesome ‘gay’ moment … Continue reading

The Apocalypse: The day heaven and earth collide (51%)

With Rhett Giles, Jill Stapley and Kristen Quintrall Story – 4 The rating states “religious themes”, and the movie is made by Faith Films, but I still didn’t expect this to be more than an asteroid movie.  Despite being someone … Continue reading

Anarchy Rising (The Survivalist, book 2), by Arthur T. Bradley

5 stars My favourite character so far is Samantha, and the dry wit repartee between her and Tanner had me laughing out loud.  There are more extreme personalities in this instalment, but most of the time it seems to reinforce … Continue reading

Frontier Justice (The Survivalist, book 1), by Arthur T. Bradley

5 stars The first thing I noticed about this novel is that it is well written in terms of compiling the English language.  I found no errors at all – apart from a strange overabundance of commas in a couple … Continue reading

Obliterated 2: Violent Nature, by C.J. Hall

Commented at Amazon, 20 April 2014: Not an ordinary post-apocalypse novel context; nor is it written from any of the usual extreme perspectives of prepper, gun-toter or ignoramus. And, to my great approval, no zombies!The characters develop well over time, … Continue reading
