New Dead - Anthology

New Dead - Anthology. Fiction. I wouldn't recommend this book. It was mostly a book of short stories about zombies. One of the stories didn't even have a zombie in it. Most of the stories weren't bad but they also weren't good. I'm happy to be finished reading this. I'm hoping to crack a good book soon. Cross your fingers.

Little Brother by Cory Doctorow

Little Brother by Cory Doctorow. YA. 365 pgs. In a pre 9/11 world I would have laughed at this book and said it would/could never happen. Post 9/11 I think that this is barely an exaggeration. I think that everyone needs to read this book and possibly open their eyes to the world around us. It's available free online I wish the world wasn't like this but it is.

Cory Doctorow is a good writer who fights for publishing freedoms and frequently gives his books away for free. I've met him and he's very nice as well.

Sky Captain and the World of Tomarrow - Movie

Sky Captain and the World of Tomarrow - Movie. The graphics were good although sometimes obviously green screened. The plot was fun. It really seemed like something written in the 50's about the future which I think was the point. The acting was wooden. Honestly I fell asleep for 30 min and didn't miss anything. I think this could have been a really good movie. It's a shame.

Bolt - Movie - G

Bolt - Movie - G. I really enjoyed this movie. It's been a lot of fun. Ok it was sentimental and some of it was really cheesy but it was a lot of fun. I would watch it again. Specially with all the kids in my family. I think it might go on the list of movies I'd like to own. So basically there's this dog that's been lead to think he's a super hero. He gets out and somehow sent across the country. He's got to find his way back to his human. :)

Dream Warrior by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Dream Warrior by Sherrilyn Kenyon. Romance. Pages 314. Dream Hunter Novel. This series is in the same universe as the dark hunter series. It more closely deals with Greek myth and legend. Unfortunately this one was a bit stale. The characters were interesting but the danger seemed to be with the red tape and not with the evil. Guess that's what happens when you get to many curses all focused on one group of people.

Where the Wild Things Are - Movie - PG

Where the Wild Things Are - Movie - PG. I thought this movie was pretty bad. You have a badly behaved kid that runs away after throwing a tantrum and biting his mother. He spends some time with his own imagination/psyche. His psyche really doesn't like him. This kid is some psychiatrists wet dream. On the whole I would never watch this movie again unless I was writing a psych paper.
