There’s a new, exciting voice on the literary scene and it belongs to Michael O’Brien Herold, a 26-year-old writer and lifetime fan of the Harry Potter series. Disappointed with the final book and all its loose ends, Mike decided to write an alternate ending, one that is sure to delight fans around the globe. He even wrote it in Rowling’s style, which he knows so well. It’s a different and satisfying journey through the world of wizarding filled with magic, mystery, love and answers to some of the questions you may have also had as the series ended.

My daughter recently asked me to go see the newest Annabelle film with her and my grandson, Nathan. I love horror movies, but I was really surprised that my daughter wanted to see this film especially since she’s leery of dolls and clowns. Rere grew up with her share of dolls, but they were usually the cute baby dolls or the well-known Barbie dolls. Settled in our reclining seats, and with enough popcorn and candy to give us the supreme sugar high, we waited for the film to start. Did the film live up to the promised screams? Meet me after the jump. Continue reading

I am enjoying this first season of “Midnight Texas” It is horror done lightly, definitely not the equal of True Blood, but a close cousin to Grim, a supernatural show that made watching horror fun again. A supernatural creature munches her way into town, and while Team Manfred scrambles to stop her, Olivia deals with Daddy issues. Continue reading

Gilbert Speaks On the Series Finale of “Orphan Black”

13 Aug

S and W

I don’t know what to say about this being the last time I’ll see the clone club together on “Orphan Black.” I do know that I hate saying goodbye to people who shine in a world gone mad. Tatiana Maslany did the impossible. This tiny girl was able to create, with the help of a great cast and crew, a family of unique and wacky sisters. Tatiana was absolutely magical at weaving into existence: Helena, Sarah, Cosima, Alison, Rachel, Krystal, and all the clones that walked into our lives over the last five years.

But, Tatiana was more than a master magician. How else can we explain her ability to make each character that she played seem so real? How many times did we need to remind ourselves that there was only one actress playing all the clones? The show ends as it begins. Sarah has to save the day because Helena is about to have her babies. Will the series end on a happy note?  Continue reading

I have a friend who is a fellow writer. I’ve done two reviews of her books. Check it out here, then buy her books. They are really good. Linda Bennett Stern had recently posted a blog about our moon sign according to our date of birth. A friend had sent this link to Linda and she was kind enough to share it. I’ll include the link at the end of my post so you can look up your moon sign, too. I’ve had a strong connection to the moon ever since I was a toddler. I also see dead people. Is my moon sign to blame? Find out after the jump Continue reading
