What do you think of when someone says the word “library?” Books, probably. Maybe story time for little ones? Libraries today are so, so, so much more than that, and are a perfect place to save you and your family a bundle of money each year. If you haven’t visited the library in a while, now’s a good time to plan a trip there and learn about all the activities and services. But before you do – or in case … Continue reading

Another Earth

April 5, 2012 by  

This is a 2011 movie about a parallel Earth that appears in the sky one night. It’s explained by orbits behind the sun.  The movie never actually goes to the other Earth so that’s a bit disappointing.  It’s mostly a story about the decisions and mistakes we make in life. We follow the life of a young woman who is living with the consequences of her actions. The ending isn’t very exciting but I enjoyed it because they don’t just … Continue reading

Immortals

immortals dvd

I watched The Immortals for the first time with my husband on DVD the other evening; neither of us were terribly impressed.  The film started out slow and did eventually move into some action packed fighting.  However, the kicker for me was the inaccuracy of the film with regards to its mythological foundation. The premise is Theseus is a bastard, born to his mother after she was raped in a small Grecian village.  Unbeknownst to Theseus, his friend and mentor is actual Zeus (leader of the Gods) in … Continue reading

Heroes of Olympus: The Son of Neptune

If you’ve never read a Rick Riordan Young Adult (YA) novel – you’ve been missing out! The Heroes of Olympus series picks up where the Percy Jackson novels left off, but with a twist.  We learn that not only do the Gods have children (demi-gods) in their Greek aspects, but they do so in their Roman aspects as well. While we’ve become familiar with Camp Half-blood (the Greek demi-gods) we soon learn that there is another camp for the Roman … Continue reading
