I Spent a Night at The McKittrick Hotel (and Here's What Happened)
Living in New York City kind of breaks any boredom or laziness. There is always something to see or to experience or to discover. The number of activities is endless. So endless that we might have a hard time making a good choice sometimes. However, it sounds like I picked the right option over a year ago... option that will remain in the back of my head until the cows come home.

GH fans will be happy to have a name to go with the face of a woman they continue to see. often extra's are not even listed in the credits.

We Need Both
Warning: The following contains spoilers for Avengers: Endgame and potentially any Marvel films from before it. One of the hardest movies for me to watch is Captain America: Civil War. It's a movie where I feel obligated to pick a side. But I love heroes on both sides. I love Captain America and Iron Man.
'THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS' fans may have missed the real reason Devon will be the bio dad of Chance and Abby's baby.
Fans of THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS have been perplexed as to why Devon Hamilton volunteered to be the sperm donor for Chance and Abby. At first glance, this entire scenario seems absolutely crazy. Abby has scar tissue and Chance has a low sperm count so neither of them can contribute to producing a child. This sounded absurd to many viewers who began complaining about the storyline.
All superheroes are dim in front of this man
Thanos snapped his fingers in Avengers 3 and half of Marvel's superheroes went up in smoke. A commotion ensued in the cinema, with the couple in the front row, right in the middle, arguing over who deserved the death penalty.
Film Review: 'Greatland'
In the vibrant utopia known as Greatland, life is all about diversity and love. At least, that's what Ulysses (Arman Darbo) grew up believing. But that worldview changes on his 15th birthday--the day he's set to undergo a mandatory rite-of-passage ceremony. It's on that day that Ulysses and his best friend "Ugly Duck" (Chloe Ray Warmoth) witness her father Mr. Lee being "sent to Resurrection" for not reporting how his daughter had contracted a virus that was plaguing their world. Having already seen how Mr. Lee was punished with becoming invisible and mute for conceiving Duck through "Stone Age procreation", seeds of doubt have already been planted in Ulysses' mind about Greatland's "perfection".
Must-see exhibits at the National Gallery, London
London’s National Gallery, which occupies one side of Trafalgar Square, is one of the world’s greatest collections of Western European paintings, containing around 2,300 exhibits dating from the 13th to the 19th centuries. For any art lover visiting London, it is a “must see” destination. Here are brief descriptions of just a few of the many treasures on display.
Villainess Review: Kristin (Brutal Bridesmaids)
Lifetime Movie Network gave us this film, Brutal Bridesmaids, in February 2021, which made me absolutely giddy because the title guarantees that a villainess will appear. But I'm getting ahead of myself, let's set the stage.
Five Great Movies That Are Actually Historically Accurate
Last week I published an article about five of the worst movies ever made, at least as far as their historical accuracy. To show that I’m not just a grumpy old man who hates everything, today I want to present the flip side of that: five movies that are both excellent films and historically accurate as well. Sadly, there aren't as many of these as there are of the bad ones as an overall total of what Hollywood puts out. On the plus side, not a single film listed here features that bane of historical filmmaking Mel Gibson.
Book Review: "The Hair Carpet Weavers" by Andreas Eschbach
I have read many Sci-Fi novels in my time. From my favourite Sci-Fi novel (if you would call it of that particular genre) “The Island of Dr. Moreau” by H.G Wells to the more modern ideas portrayed in Ernest Cline’s “Ready Player One”. I have encountered everything from “Fahrenheit 451” all the back to the original genius of language and narrative depth in Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein”. If we count novels such as “Brave New World” by Aldous Huxley, Margaret Atwood’s “Handmaid’s Tale” and the modern classic “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” - yes, I can honestly say that I have read and enjoyed those two. But I will only ever admit here that I have never read the other modern Sci-Fi classic, “Dune”. Instead, I decided to give a different Sci-Fi novel on my TBR a go. “The Hair Carpet Weavers” by Andreas Eschbach is something I thought at first sounded pretty tame but, it turned out to be one of the most engrossing and exciting Sci-Fi novels I have ever read.
