Edmond Gagnon‘s review
The characters too may be predictable, but the author easily gets the reader to cheer for the good guy, resent his adversaries, and want to wipe the bad guys off the face of the earth.
Extreme Measures is a fast-paced spy thriller that will easily keep you flipping pages.
I wouldn’t consider Cathryn or I Star Wars fanatics, but we usually get around to seeing the latest production. I was pleasantly surprised to see the film was directed by Ron Howard, and that Woody Harrelson was in it. The names of the leading actors didn’t ring any bells, but a couple looked familiar.
Solo is about Han Solo, not Hans Solo, the character made famous by Harrison Ford. The movie takes us back to destitute planet he grew up on, and eventually escaped. We get to see how me met Chewbacca, and how he came into possession of the Millenium Falcon – his supersonic spacecraft.
The movie is not part of the series, but gives us the usual dose of the familiar like rebellions and the empire. Its focus is on Solo and not The Force or the Jedi. As with past productions the creators have come up with exotic and creepy looking aliens who add color and a bit of humor to the film.
Alden Ehrenreich plays Solo, and although he’s no Ford, I thought he pulled it off well. Cathryn agreed when I mentioned he resembles a young DiCaprio. We both enjoyed the movie…she gave it a 9 and I a 7 out of 10.
Cathryn and I hadn’t been to The Cook’s Shop in downtown Windsor for a few years. Our mistake. Our only disappointment of the night was that someone was sitting at our special reserved table when we arrived at 7:30 sharp. The waitress sat us at a table that was just as good, apologized when we asked, and explained that the other couple had been there since 4:45 and had just ordered their entrees.

Gee, I’d be happy having my name on the cover of one in every hundred thousand.
The Murder House is a good story. It’s characters are easy to love and hate. They play off each other well, giving the plot plenty of suspense. I made the mistake of putting the book down for a couple months, and I’d forgotten what was going on, but it was easy to get back into and I wasn’t disappointed that I picked it back up. It’s good read with a respectable pace.

Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams play a competitive married couple, who along with a group of friends, take game night to a whole new level. It’s a comedy that seems a bit corny and stupid at times, but it’s also very funny. There’s twists and turns that will keep you guessing if and when the game is real or not, and if it’s actually over.
