Feasting On ‘The Hunger Games’

In February I mentioned that I started reading The Hunger Games book trilogy by Suzanne Collins and, after some delay, I was finally able to plow thru book 2 and start book 3. Because our travel day from LA to NYC was very long (due to multiple delays), I was able to finish Catching Fire, the second book of the trilogy. Overall, I loved the book … and I love where the story is headed. It’s been a long time since I voraciously needed to read a book as entertaining as Catching Fire. More »

At last … after many years of hoping, praying, talking … then planning and waiting … Scream 4 finally opened in theaters here in the US yesterday.

I was able to see the film at a showing yesterday and I am very happy to reveal that I LOVED it entirely and believe it to be a very worthy sequel to the amazing Scream horror franchise. More »
