|The highway : a novel |
by C. J. Box
This is beneath the talents of C.J. Box. He Box not had the phenomenal success of the Joe Pickett series and started out with "The Highway" I would tell him to hit the highway and not read another work by him. posted Dec 2, 2013 at 12:17PM
|The highway |
by Box, C. J.
Like millions of you I love the Joe Pickett novels by C.J. Box. But "The Highway" is just plain predictable and such claptrap that I have to put a thumbs down for overall review. Why does such a revered writer have to resort to another rendition of "girl kidnapped by sexual predator and has moments to live"? I do not want to read gore, sadism, and sickness of the human condition. posted Dec 2, 2013 at 12:14PM
|Gorky Park [videorecording] |
by Apted, Michael.
Gorky Park the novel was quite good when I first read it. Gorky Park the movie was also entertaining when I first saw it. But 30 years later the film has only one highlight and that is the performance by Lee Marvin. Would be star William Hurt was just a pretty boy trying to fill shoes way too big for himself. Perhaps it was poor screen writing but the film itself just can not add a single dab of pizzazz to the drudgery of Russian life. posted Nov 29, 2013 at 12:10PM
|Death of the self [DVD] |
by Dexter, Colin.
"Death of the self" gives Morse a chance to show his tears of joy at hearing a true diva sing. Morse is a not a man who sees himself being fooled by powerful personalities acting as camouflage for the underlying deadly criminal. Lewis is one step behind but trying to catch up to his more worldly boss. posted Nov 29, 2013 at 12:06PM
|Dalziel & Pascoe. Season 3 [videorecording] |
by Buchanan, Colin.
I want to personally say I find either Reginald Hill or the director of the Dalziel & Pascoe series the most insultingly irreligious attack on my personal beliefs. Given a chance I would throttle the author and maybe some of the actors too. Anyone can be an atheist but that does not give license to attack people who do have beliefs. What good is an atheist in a world searching for meaning and purpose? posted Nov 27, 2013 at 12:02PM
