How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

How to Train Your Dragon 3 poster.pngToothless and Hiccup rescue dragons and bring them back to their home, Berk. However, the place is getting more and more crowded. When a new villain emerges, Hiccup decides to move his people and dragons to a hidden world where they’ll be safe.

But it’s not that easy.

I really liked this movie but parts did feel forced. Was really cute to see Toothless with the new Light Fury. The humor was the same as the previous movies and definitely tugged at the heartstrings.

This third movie does bring the storyline to a satisfying conclusion.

Fox Shifter Round-Up

Let’s catch all those sexy foxes!

Fox shifters have been on my mind lately, with the publication of Ruthless Misfit and with Ruthless Outlaw coming out next month! The heroines in those two books, Erena and Margot are sisters who are both fox shifters. I don’t see them too often in PNR, so I hit up my author friends to share their books with me. Now we’ve got a nice crowd of foxes all in one spot.

Movie Review: I Kill Giants

Movie Review: I Kill Giants

I Kill Giants is a fantasy drama based on graphic novels created by writer Joe Kelly and artist J. M. Ken Niimura.

Barbara (played by Madison Wolfe) is a self-sufficient teenager who lives with her brother and older sister, Karen. In order to escape reality, she creates a fantasy world inspired by her love of Dungeons & Dragons and former Phillies pitcher, Harry Coveleski. Believing that giants from other worlds are wanting to attack her hometown, she spends her days creating weapons and traps to fend off the creatures.

Sophia, a new girl from England becomes her friend, and along with the new school psychologist, tries to help her.

I really liked this movie. It reminded me a bit of The Bridge Terabithia but with a much, much better and happier ending. So if you liked Terabithia, you’ll love I Kill Giants.

Movie Review: Rampage

Movie Review: Rampage

Rampage teaser film poster.jpgRampage is a movie loosely based on a video game of the same name. Energyne, a company, is experimenting in genetic mutation. When their space ship holding their research canisters containing a pathogen crash into various parts of the city, one make George (an albino gorilla) grow in size and aggression. Two more canisters change a wolf and a crocodile in the same way.

Dwayne Johnson plays a Primatologist who uses sign language to communicate with George. The two have a unique relationship. When George goes on a rampage, Dwayne’s character must team up with  Dr. Kate Caldwell, a genetic engineer, (played by Naomie Harris). She created the formula that has changed the animals and wants to at least help George by taking away the anger and aggression side of the change. Unfortunately, nothing can be done about the animals’ huge sizes.

This was an action-packed movie that I liked more than I thought I would. The CGI was pretty good and the script interesting. I also loved the diversity of the cast including the two leads.
