As many people out there, I woke up with tremendous disappointment yesterday morning. Finding Trump the leader of one of the most powerful countries in the world, if not the most powerful, put me in a state of disgust I could hardly bear. Consequently, I've tried to ignore the situation and 'cultivate my own garden' … Continue reading 2016 US Election – A Review
This one has been out for a few weeks now. Starring Ben Affleck, it also counts with Anna Kendrick and J.K. Simmons, all actors I very much like. The trailer looked particularly promising too, so I went for it. As usual, beware of spoilers. Christian Wolff (Affleck) wasn't a normal child. He was obsessive, he … Continue reading The Accountant
As you know, Mondays I post about health and eating disorders mostly but I must say I wasn't sure what I was going to write about today.

And you might wonder, why John Wick? For me, it's one of those … Continue reading John Wick, Revenge of the Puppy

It is by no stretch of the imagination the latest in literature, nor will it be showing on your local bookstore's Recent Releases bookshelf, but it certainly deserves to be read and re-reviewed as … Continue reading The Earthsea Quartet by Ursula Le Guin
In this, my first review, as in any to come, I will try to avoid spoilers as much as I can but when reviewing something, it's very difficult to give nothing away, so be warned, (some) spoilers ahead. What first called my attention to this movie was the visual aspect. I was really looking forward … Continue reading Kubo and the Two Strings
