Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The plot was formulaic, the story was weak, the characters were cardboard cutouts, and there were issues with the story that just made me want to toss the book as far away as I can.

Grant Morrison wrote a horrible intro to one of the more interesting characters of the DC universe, and there were things about this story that just made me so frustrated reading it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too Many "Just Happens" For This Story, May 16, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This was one of the most meh editions of Atomic Robo to have happened so far. The problem with it is that there are so many "just happens" that keep happening in the story.

They just happen to recovery Atomic Robo's head.
One of the people working on the black market superscience ship just happens to be a former member of Tesladyne.
They just happen to work out a deal with the PRC government to rebuilt Atomic Robo.
Atomic Robo just happens to know about a Nazi superweapon still in space and ready to fire.
They just happen to get Atomic Robo into space to get to the Nazi superweapon.
They just happen to get ALAN to build Atomic Robo a new nuclear "heart" to replace his current power siphon.
In the process of using the Nazi superweapon to defeat Biomega, Atomic Robo just happens to show up Majestic 12/Task Force ULTRA and make they look like fools.
And, they just happen to be free and clear when the story ends.

That's off the top of my head, and I'm not happy with the number of "just happens" that happen in this story. Very weak.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Not one of Stross' best works, the book takes place from the perspective of Dominique "Mo" O'Brien and I do not like the character that I've read. I can sympathize for her quadruple whammy of various personal issues, but reading what she does in the book makes me feel a bit cold about the character. Also, the story has a bit of a formulaic aspect to it, and a lot of the plot twists are both poorly telegraphed and highly obvious if you've read other books in the series. I'm probably not going to be getting more books in this series in hardcover, but I am still going to read it.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Another very interesting take on the Batman mythology, the Earth One Batman might be seen as much closer to the The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector's Edition (Batman Begins / The Dark Knight / The Dark Knight Rises) [Blu-ray]. This Batman makes more mistakes than his other counterparts, but it makes him seems more...human and you root for his victories more.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A very interesting anime series, "Knights of Sidonia" has good pacing and has been one of the better series that I've watched in the last few years. The physics and the issues of living in space feel "real" to somebody that has been paying attention to them. The pacing is good, and I've re-watched it to catch things I've missed previously. The only issue is that a lot of the characters look very similar to each other.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice To See...But..., March 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Zone of the Enders is one of the game series that I wish we could see more of.

Unfortunatly, the HD remake is going to make that hard...

Graphically, it's beautiful and much more impressive now. Controls are tight, and well done. BUT...the second game in the pack "The Second Runner" uses the weak and poorly done dub from the original PS2 version, rather than making the most of the DVD format and including either the choice of the Japanese language soundtrack or a new dub that is closer to the original language soundtrack.

5.0 out of 5 stars Go In With A Clear Mind..., March 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
...and you'll love this film. Pretend that "Judge Dredd" was never made, and this is the first film adaption of the classic 2000 AD comic book series.

The story is tight, it has a good pace, it never throws at you things that you have to go "stupid, stupid!" on the part of the writers. Karl Urban (whom is also in "Almost Human" on FOX) plays Dredd true to form, including that the helmet NEVER COMES OFF. He portrays the character with voice, posture, and form and does superbly.

It's a good throwback to '80s action films-close in, "small" rewards (versus the epic "saving the world" scale) type, and very well done. Go get it, now.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Hard-Sience Book That Needs More Love, March 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The second book in the "Human Reach" series, "The Desert of Stars" is a well-written, well-produced novel with enough hard science to make you feel comfortable, but enough rubber science to make some things practical (like star travel at a rate that's relatively easy).

It is a shame more people don't know of this book series, and I am waiting with baited breath for the next book.

My Maglight flashlight is my "go to" light when I need something bright and powerful when I'm at home.

The LED conversion turns a great light into a perfect light. Bright, powerful, clear...if you have one, it's a good purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Happy To Get This, March 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've always had Maglights, but my biggest issue has always been when the bulb dies, the replacement is never easy. Nor is getting new bulbs when you run out.

This one is perfect. It's bright, it offers several functions, has a holster, and I'm very glad to have gotten it.
