  1. Empire of Storms looks interesting! Is it book one in a series?

    My reading challenge number for the year is 52! I've already read 5 books this month, so I'm probably going to end up reading more than 52.

  13. Usually, when I straighten, I tend to have a look of pain and there is grunting. LOL Being over 50 is fun! ;-) And thanks for always adding me! There are days I wouldn't remember to do it. Again, that over 50 thing. LOL I'd love for your readers to check out mine. https://tinyurl.com/LisaKsBookReviews12419

Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

REVIEW:
A superbly made movie!!
Seriously, the scenes were pretty phenomenal. It made for some pretty intense moments along the way. The space scenes were incredible. I loved how much real footage they used as well.
I thought I knew a lot about the moon landing of '69, though it was 8 years before my time. Even thought I knew a far amount about Neil Armstrong, but after watching this film, I realize I knew nothing at all. Had no idea he was up in the atmosphere so many times before the famous landing, but alas, he was. It really was a wonderful depiction of such an iconic event.
I also didn't know he had suffered such loss. It seemed …
