"CASHELMARA" (1974) Book Review

My experiences with novels by Susan Howatch are rather limited. If I must be honest, I have only finished three of her novels. I tried reading two other novels - "THE RICH ARE DIFFERENT" (1977) and the first novel in The Starbridge Series, "GLITTERING IMAGES" (1987). However, I could not maintain any interest in the last two novels. Neither focused upon the history of an upper-class British family, which happened to be my main interest when I was in my late teens and early twenties. Read more... )

BECOMING "THE DARK ONE"

I have a confession to make. I am a little disappointed at how Emma Swan became the new "Dark One". She did so by committing a noble act. And I find that . . . unsatisfying. Read more... )

”THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD” (1938) Review

Over seventy-seven years ago, the 1938 film, ”THE ADVENTUERS OF ROBIN HOOD”, was released in theaters for the first time. For many fans and film critics, the swashbuckler is considered the definitive Errol Flynn movie. They also view his character, Sir Robin of Locksley, as the pinnacle of the Australian actor’s career.

"ONCE UPON A TIME": THE FRUSTRATION OF AN OUTLAW QUEEN SHIPPER

The latest plot development of ABC's "ONCE UPON A TIME" has left me in a state of frustration. This plot development . . . or twist has to do with the relationship between the characters Mayor Regina Mills aka the Evil Queen and Robin Hood aka Robin of Locksley. And the ironic thing is that my frustration is not centered on the actual plot twist, but has a good deal to do with the fan reaction to it. Read more... )

"ONCE UPON A TIME": TOLERATING AMBIGUITY

A good number of the "ONCE UPON A TIME" fandom seemed to be divided over what was revealed in the series' latest episode called (4.16) "Best Laid Plans". This division seems to be especially apparent in the episode's flashbacks and the moral implications hinted from those sequences. Read more... )

"ONCE UPON A TIME" RELATIONSHIP MYSTERY - PART II

Nearly two years ago, I had written an article that reported an exchange between Adam Horowitz, one of the showrunners for "ONCE UPON A TIME" and a fan of the show. In this exchange, Horowitz claimed that Regina Mills aka the Evil Queen did not use the heart of Sheriff Graham Humbert to coerce him into having sex with her. Read more... )

"THE HOBBIT: BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES" (2014) Review

When New Line Cinema and Warner Brothers first released the news that Peter Jackson would adapt J.R.R. Tolkien's 1937 novel, "The Hobbit" into three films, I had not been pleased. I thought the novel could have easily been adapted into two films or even a single film. Now that Jackson's third film, "THE HOBBIT: BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES", I realized that my feelings had not changed. Read more... )
