Star Wars: Dark Force Rising by Timothy Zahn

Dark Force Rising As I said in my review of the first book in this trilogy, Heir to the Empire , I have been caught up in the Star Wars Hype. Though sadly I still haven't seen The Force Awakens. I have already pre-ordered the movie on iTunes so I will have it on April 1st and as soon as it comes to the dollar show by me I am going to take my son and we will see it in the theater because I have seen all of the others in the theater I can't break that tradition now.  I really liked the first book and was kind of surprised at that. I'm not a huge fan of Star Wars but I got excited about the movie. I didn't expect to like the first book as much as I did but with this one I didn't know what to expect. Empire Strikes Back was awesome with some of the best action sequences and story reveals that are now legend. I really tried to not get my hopes up that this was going to bee the same but I was a little let down.  This is clearly a middle of the trilogy book.

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice I couldn't wait to see this movie. I usually don't go opening weekend because I tend to avoid the big crows and enjoy a quieter theater. Thank God for reserved seating. I have waited a very long time for this movie and I couldn't wait any longer. My emotions have gone up and down on this roller coaster DC has taken us on leading up to this movie and I am at a loss for words as to how to describe this movie. I will begin by saying that DC Comics has not let me down.  I had so many doubts about this movie and was afraid of a George Clooney situation when I heard Ben Affleck was going to be Batman. So many critics didn't like Man of Steel and it seems that most those reviews didn't like the movie because of Zack Snyder. I loved Man of Steel and had every ounce of faith that Zack Snyder wouldn't let me down. I also heard that my favorite comic book writer Geoff Johns was a consultant on the movie which gave me confidence
