Agents of Shield

Watching Agents of Shield has become the go to Father/Daughter event of my household. When I, along with my 12 and 14 year old girls decided to start watching Agents of Shield last summer, I made one rule; we must watch each episode together. My hope was that the experience of watching a particular show together would become a highlight of our week and even create special memories for all 3 of us. I remember back in my childhood sitting next to my Mom many a nights watching Mary Tyler Moore and All In The Family, Taxi, and Cheers, and laughing … Continue reading Agents of Shield

Thoughts on Dr Strange Movie

After seeing the new movie, Dr. Strange a few nights ago, I’m giving it the following two ratings:  for Entertainment Value  for Content Concerns The 2 symbols I’ve used above are called SPLARS, a hybrid of a STAR and a SPLAT. A SPLAR means the movie falls somewhere between good and bad. Entertainment Value In many ways, Dr. Strange was a very entertaining movie. Benedict Cumberbatch was perfect for the role. Not only was his acting right on, but he fit the part physically as well. The character arc for Dr. Strange as a character was very effective. He was somewhat unlikable … Continue reading Thoughts on Dr Strange Movie

Captain America: Civil War … Good vs Good = Bad

I finally got a chance to see Captain America: Civil War over the weekend. I know its been out since May of this year, but life has been busy and movie going funds have been low. My daughters and I have been patiently waiting for this, the next installment in The Avengers saga to come out on DVD. The movie promised one of the largest cast of superheros ever assembled for one movie. There were familiar favorites and fresh new faces. This was going to be great, or so we thought. We popped our popcorn, poured our sodas, turned up the volume, … Continue reading Captain America: Civil War … Good vs Good = Bad

BFG is Big and Friendly

The new movie, BFG (Big Friendly Giant), has disappointed in ticket sales so far, but in the “great movie” department, it’s a huge success. I took my 13 year old daughter to see it this past weekend and we both had nothing but good things to say about it. The story, adapted from a much beloved book by Roald Dahl, has a classic feel with plenty of old fashioned good versus evil action, and just enough magic mixed in to carry us viewers into a world that’s much more fun and exciting then the one we live in. The giant is lovable and … Continue reading BFG is Big and Friendly

New Artwork for Glazed Man 2

I’m very excited about my new book, due out at the end of this year. My working title is GLAZED MAN & RAT GIRL 2: PLASTIC HEAD’S SWEET REVENGE. The new story is complete and I’m into the illustrations now. It’s always fun to see new drawings of my characters doing different activities and experiencing new emotions. I may share some of those in the coming months. I’m also having a blast creating new characters for this book. Here is a sneak peak at one of the new characters.  I won’t tell you it’s name or how it fits into the … Continue reading New Artwork for Glazed Man 2

Indiana Jones Films Ranked

For my Father’s Day celebration this year, I simply asked to have an Indiana Jones movie marathon at my house so that I could enjoy these classic movies with my kids. The day was a big success. We got through them all and I was able to introduce my kids to some of the greatest movies of all time. Now that they are all fresh in my mind, I thought it would be a good time to rank the four of them in their order of greatness, from the least great to the most great. None of them are bad … Continue reading Indiana Jones Films Ranked

Beyond The Mask

I was interested in seeing Beyond the Mask because, to my knowledge, its the first action adventure period movie produced by a Christian film company. Burns Family Studios made Beyond the Mask and released it last year. The only movie series that I can think of to compare it to is the Pirates of the Caribbean series, although Mask is not about pirates. But, it is around the same time period and involves lots of action set in historic locations between good guys and bad guys. The story is set in the 1700’s in England and in America during the … Continue reading Beyond The Mask
