The Predator (2018)

AVAILABLE NOW!
RATED R
107 minutes
AMAZON
From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, the universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.

REVIEW: A pretty epic movie!!
The hubby and I watched it together, both being fans of the Predator franchise.  This one was an action-packed and graphic story with so many new cool things. I really loved the super predator, and the fact the one predator actually gave humanity a gift.
The kid who played Rory was a sweetie pie and I think he stole the show.
Really loved the end too, you just sorta know there will be more, and I am pretty happy about that. The hubby is stoked fo…

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by Jack Thorne & John Tiffany (9)

Kindle: 5365 KBPrint: 336 pagesPublisher: Pottermore Publishing (July 25 2017)ASIN: B073P9348D
AMAZON

The official playscript of the original West End production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn't much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children. While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places. The playscript for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was originally released as a 'special rehearsal edition' alongside the opening of Jack Thorne's play in London's West End in summer 2016. Based on an original story by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne, the play opened to rapturous reviews …

The Deuce Season 2

AVAILABLE NOW!
3 DISCS
TV-MR

AMAZON

Featuring an acclaimed ensemble cast led by James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal, and executive produced by David Simon, George Pelecanos, Nina K. Noble and Franco, Season 2 of The Deuce finds its protagonists living at the apex of the Golden Age of Porn: when the dream of a mainstream X-rated film business is a credible reality, and the free-for-all sex trade of Times Square is at its gaudy, unrestrained height. Picking up in late 1977 (five years after S1), the Deuce’s backroom massage parlors and SRO hotels have exploded into sprawling sex emporiums featuring nude girls, live sex shows and peep booths for every imaginable fetish. The NY Mafia’s grip on the porn business is beginning to slip as talent migrates to the West Coast – but for now, the city is flush with movies, music and art as the drug-fueled party rages around the clock. Season 2 of The Deuce captures the disco era in all its excesses before developers, crack cocaine, AIDS and videotape…

Hammer by Faith Winslow (8)

Rachel

Beneath those gorgeous, rippling muscles lies a monster…a player, a bad boy – a murderer.
Sam Hammond has some nerve showing up to my baby brother’s funeral looking the way he does. He’s so disrespectful – all leather, shredded denim, long hair, and obvious tattoos. It’s like the bastard doesn’t even realize he’s the reason Terry is dead – or doesn’t care.
I know they say it’s Terry’s own fault, but I know better. Terry was just a sweet boy who fell in with a rough crowd. He made some mistakes, sure, but he never could have murdered a man in cold blood.
Now, don’t be fooled by Sam’s hunky, bad boy exterior: he might look hot as hell, but I promise the man is cold as ice. See, Sam is the leader of the Wolves, a wild, rough biker gang my brother had no business being part of. And he’s responsible for a lot of the violence in this town.
Somehow, I know, Terry’s death is Sam’s fault.
I just have to prove it.


Sam

Rachel might be beautiful…
