enjoying House of Dragons
Trying out new LoTR series on Amazon tonight
Animal Kingdom series finale was last week. Somewhat good/rushed and therefore a bit unsatisfying of an ending. I think the younger “Smurf” was way better character to dislike than older Smurf, and it explains the origin stories better. They needed to do a more complete ending for Deran and Craig I thought. Overall it was a good ride, but just always below the greatness of a Sons of Anarchy type equivalent.
I hit a bit of an audiobook lull, and re-listening to a few old series to pass the time until some new pre-orders finally arrive.
Books looking forward to are:
Commune part 5, Joshua Gayou
Khaos, Jeremy Robinson
KTF part 1, Jason Anspach
Critical Mass, Daniel Suarez
These are all sequels or part of ongoing book series I have enjoyed.
I did finish “Eversion” by long-time favorite author Alastair Reynolds. Normally a space/sci-fi guy, this book is more mixed genre with traveling from days of pirates on ocean up thru space-faring. His usually solid, if not a bit thinking-man’s fare.
“The Signal” by Joshua Calvert was also interesting. Think; scientists find futuristic tech and capitalize on it, regardless of unknown consequences or hidden agendas of where it came from.
I don’t know of a ton of upcoming movies I am psyched for, but hopefully I get surprised.
Off top of my head, there is:
Black Panther 2
Then in 2023
Feb - Antman 3
March - Creed 3
March - John Wick 4
May - Guardians Galaxy 3
May - Fast X
June - Indiana Jones 5
I guess Solomon was correct about 2900 years ago when he wrote Ecclesiasts 1:9
“What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.”
God only knows how he predicted the movie release schedule of 2022/2023. Enjoy the holiday weekend all.
