1.0 out of 5 stars Should have left well enough alone!, April 9, 2015
Sometimes you shouldn't tamper with a classic and this movie is the proof of it. The original Dumb and Dumber got by because we had no idea who Harry and Lloyd were so their antics were very funny. In this movie they come across as tired and stupid. The goal here seems to out stupid the first movie and it really falls apart as their antics now cross the line to becoming eye rolling. I do have to tip my cap to Rob Riggle who is the freshest and funniest part of the movie. He continues to be that comedy every man.

But if you like the first movie as much as I did you're going to be disappointed by this. Pass on it.


The Greatest Game Ever Pitched: Juan Marichal, Warren Spahn, and the Pitching Duel of the Century

2.0 out of 5 stars A great story told poorly makes for a weak book., April 3, 2015
This book doesn't work because Jim Kaplan takes a great story and then reduces it to a really disorganized mess. He hits the nail on the head when, almost in passing, he calls the 1960s the second dead ball era. He focuses exclusively on the passing of baseball from the era when a pitcher was expected to finish what they started but he missed a great chance to talk about the 1960s and how is represented a dominance of pitchers. He also focused on the incredible life stories of Marichal and Spahn but somehow told them in a fashion which was dull and drab. Better writing and a more focused line would have made this an incredible story.

Pass on this one!

3.0 out of 5 stars Unique premise hampered by lack of background!, March 31, 2015
I found Strange Rebels hit on a unique premise and really did a lot of work to get to the conclusion. However it came up a bit short because it lacked more background information to set the stage. Christian Caryl really hit the target by seeing 1979 as a transitional year and one which laid the ground work for the last two decades of the 20th century and the first two of the 21st. Where the author comes up short I believe is that he doesn't offer a fuller description or background as to the state of the world. While what was offered was impressive, it begged for more of a setting. I found the information on the Great Leap Forward quite compelling but little is shared as to what it, and the Cultural Revolution, did to make the small steps offered by Deng so remarkable. The sections on the rise of Iran while compelling did very little to talk about the immense graft, truly staggering. There is a story about entire planes being stole and resold by Iran. Anyway, the theme is fully there and quite innovative.

History nuts like myself will ask for more but this is a great read for is unique premise.

What can I say it does what it promises to do. One big own side is that the glow in the dark feature is hard to activate. You have to really give it a hard push!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Movie and one of 2014's Best!, March 27, 2015
I have to admit that I had never read the Guardians of the Galaxy comic strip so I came into this very skeptical. The Marvel comics make for movie gold but how long can it go on. This movie so surprised me and won me over I don't think there is a movie I enjoyed so completely in my life. The movie is open to new comers like myself and, from what I gather, the fans of the comic. The story is easy to follow but doesn't plod along. The acting is top notch and the humor is both subtle but also hilarious The acting is top notch and is cartoonish without being over the top.. The quality of the cast is amazing. This is one of the best movies of 2014!

Enjoy this one!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Heart Breaking and Heart Lifting Story, March 19, 2015
This is one of the most unique and interesting books I have read in quite some time. It presents an interesting and compelling view of the relationships between the two Koreas. Mr. Fischer has done a wonderful job of applying a human aspect to Kim Jong-Il while equally painting an accurate and brutal view of his dictatorship. The fascinating aspect of Asian cinema is compelling and demonstrates it's rise from the ashes of WWII and the Korean War. The torture Madame Choi and Shin Sang-Ok is heart rendering and also inspirational in that they never gave up on their dream of freedom. It also puts a human touch to North Korea which makes their plight even more heart breaking.

This is a great book and I strongly recommend it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes Sweeping Means you Miss, March 12, 2015
The problem with this book is that it tries to write several interesting stories as a sweeping history. Unfortunately, Walter Isaccson falls far short of this goal. The book reminds me of the series books that consist of the best Science Fiction or Sports Writing of a given year. In those books some miss their marks and others are outstanding. Here he tries to have us believe that the technology revolution was thanks to the work of maybe two dozen people, nearly all white men and American, who collaborated together. The title seems to come first so the story is written to support that. It results in a sloppy mess with far too many names to remember and later chapters are really stand alone events from the previous ones. To be fair I had much greater hopes after reading the Steve Jobs biography so Isaccson's fall is even greater.

Don't bother with this one. I find it over rated.
