Movie Review and Contest

In continued celebration of Louisiana Longshot's release, I'm having a drawing for a $50 egift card to BN or Amazon - winner's choice. Just drop by my Facebook author page and leave a post on the $50 egift card contest post at the top of the page. Be sure and Like the page while you're there, if you haven't already.

In other news, the print version of LL is now available at Amazon. It should push to other sites over the next couple of weeks. If you're a bookstore owner or buyer, you can register as a reseller through Createspace and purchase the books at a discount for your business.

Now, for the movie review: I saw the new Spiderman flick last week. I think it's the best version yet. For those that haven't seen it, it's not a continuation of the other movies. This is a reboot - meaning it takes you back to the beginning. This version had Peter Parker infected by the spider while still in high school and covers his first love Gwen Stacy. The actors were fab, but then, I love Emma Stone.

So, if you're into the superhero remakes, this one is definitely worth seeing.

And I've already made reservations for the upcoming Batman movie. Love me some Christian Bale. :)

Have you seen anything good lately?

We just went and saw Prometheus - it was decent. We just watched Thor on dvd and that one I enjoyed more.

One of my male friends saw the new Spiderman movie opening night. He agrees with you that it's the best ever.

I also liked Prometheus, but I am always somewhat disappointed with the end of those type of movies. I guess I'm expected a big reveal even though logically, I know there's nothing big enough to make me go "wow" as I've already researched all that thoroughly.

I liked Thor as well. And the actor who plays him is SO cute. :)

Tori - I really enjoyed it. I think the reboot is going to be very effective. I hope they continue along the storyline they've created with this version. I like it much better.

I haven't been to the movies in a while. I do, however, want to see Prometheus and have had many discussions with the hubs over the new Spiderman movie.

Jana DeLeon said...

Brandy - you should give the new movie a whirl. I liked the new Spiderman better than Prometheus.

We went and saw Magic Mike last week. If there was a plot I didn't know it. But I don't think anyone cared.
