DisPLACEd, Merlin, and a wedding, OH MY!

Hey everyone!

So we’re over half-way through 2016 and I have a few updates for you.

1. DisPLACEd

Hey everyone!
We’re sure you’ve noticed it’s July and the first instalment of DisPLACEd has yet to be uploaded.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have had a bit of a set back in getting you the first finished product, but have no fear, it’ll just be a short postponement.
To tide you over, we’re releasing the synopsis, writer’s bios, and MUCH MORE very soon. Enjoy!

2. Merlin

Chapter 2 of my Merlin: Aithusa episode novelisation has now been published. You can find it here – https://www.wattpad.com/story/78334108-merlin-aithusa.

3. WEDDING!

No I am not getting married (unless Colin Morgan would like to step forward and propose!). My beautiful sister is marrying her Prince Charming. For the next few weeks there may not be too many website updates.

All in all, I hope you enjoy the DisPLACEd updates and reading Merlin: Aithusa!

Merlin: Aithusa (TV Tie-In)

I love novels, and I love TV/Movie.

No this isn’t about fan fiction, but TV Tie-Ins. In the future, I would LOVE to be paid to write original stories, and episode novelisations of TV Shows, so I thought I should put my work out there.

So check out it and let me know what you think!

Footloose (2011) – Review

Footloose2011Poster

I’ll be honest, I was biased when I pressed play.

I recorded it weeks ago, but with nothing else on TV, I decided to finally put it on.

Remakes in general drive me nuts, so I wasn’t too enthusiastic about this one – not to mention they removed the best part: Kevin Bacon!

From reading this review, you may think I’m some old fogey. No, I am almost 25 years old, and am honest enough to admit that I do not agree with the kids in this movie at all. Instead of my usual review format, I’ll just do bullet-points.

The Good

  • The acting. I didn’t know most of them (with the exception of Miles Teller, Dennis Quaid, and Andie MacDowell), but all of them played their roles well.
  • The dancing featured some of our favourite moves from the original, while incorporating modern actions.
  • They kept to the idea of the original, not trying to make it something different. After all, what makes movies like the original Footloose a great movie, is that it can be timeless.

The Bad

  • Rules make kids rebel – No, idiot kids do that just fine on their own. It’s like saying laws like ‘No Murder’ are responsible for people wanting to murder. Of course ‘no music’ is ridiculous, but indulging in underage sex, drugs, and alcohol aren’t intelligent decisions. Until we are ~25 years old, our brains are still forming, and the last part to form is the long-term effects of their actions. As adults it is our responsibility to ensure those still developing aren’t making the decisions they cannot make. If they think it’s unfair, tough luck.
  • Church and State – The world isn’t going to follow God and doesn’t believe in Him, but that doesn’t mean He’s not real. There is no real separation of church and state, God has laws and they are above all other laws. Most of the time, where do you think they got the laws?
  • Dancing in the Bible – Yes David and the worshippers danced, but no where in the Bible does it have them rubbing up against each other in a Holy way in celebration of God.
  • At every step of the movie they show how right the laws were. These kids didn’t want to do things the right way. When there was no law against music, they still acted like idiots. If they didn’t have alcohol and drugs, and didn’t let their dance movements lead to underage sex, then there wouldn’t be a problem.
  • Adults may play these roles in the movie, but the ages are 15/16/17 years old. They are children, not adults. They have barely been alive, and yet they think they know everything. News flash, they don’t.

I’m sure there are many more reasons I can name, but I’ll leave it there for now. Let me know what you thought of the movie.

To finish on a lighter note, here is the amazing Kevin Bacon doing his famous dance in 2014.

Roswell High: The Watcher – Book Review

thewatcher.jpg

I don’t remember much about the show ‘Roswell‘. My older sister watched it a lot, and I know the faces, but that’s about it.

Looking through a box for my next book to read, I found ‘Roswell High: The Watcher‘. Number four in the series, it isn’t a long book, and it contains information from previous novels – not to mention essentially ending on a ‘to be continued’.

As I said, I don’t remember much of the show, but surely it was better than this. The writing was immature, the characters acted ridiculously, and the events moved way too quickly. I know it is a book about aliens –  so how realistic could it be? – but I still expected more.

If you still want to read this book and reminisce about an old TV favourite, go ahead, and let me know what you think.
