Prometheus not to impressive...

I recently watched Prometheus and found it extremely underwhelming. As a long time fan of the Alien movies I was disappointed. I wouldn't tell the hardcore fan not to go and see the movie however. I would simply say don't waste your money on 3D. I would go and watch it first at a matinee in 2D if I were you. Then if you like it you can always go and watch it again in 3D.

On a more pleasant note I also just recently finished reading The Hunger Games. I must admit this series of books and the author Suzanne Collins have not been on my radar. In fact, I hadn't even heard of the books or the author until The Hunger Games movie came out. Since I read mostly hard science fiction and military science fiction these books are not something I would normally stumble upon. I could have just went and watched the movie I suppose, but I'm glad I read the book. I had heard from several sources that the movie was kind of watered down to get a PG-13 rating so I wanted to read the book before actually seeing the movie. It was the right choice I believe. The book gives the reader a greater insight into the mind of the central character Katniss Everdeen, which is very important in the story telling. I have not seen the movie yet, but I will share my thoughts when I do. I really hope it lives up to the high standard set by the book. If you've seen the movie and haven't read the book I highly recommend you do!

I have allowed myself to become distracted lately with all of my movie watching and book reading from what is really important. That is writing the next installment in my Fleet Marine Striker Battalion series. It was put to the side momentarily, but is now back to the forefront. To be honest I am quite pleased with how it is coming along. I can't tell you much at this time however. What I can say is that the next installment takes place after Sweep and Clear. If you haven't read Sweep and Clear yet you can get it now for Free!! Just look at an earlier post on this blog for your code to use at checkout!
