In My Own Words:
I am a lover of great entertainment.

Any piece of entertainment, be it books, movies, or television, should transport you to another world, or way of thinking.

I think people seek stories to FEEL not to UNDERSTAND. If a story doesn't hit you in the gut. It didn't do it's job. A great story should make you feel better about yourself for experiencing it. It should uplift you, and at the same time… Read more

Confessor by Terry Goodkind

Goodkind has succeeded where so many other authors have failed. He delivers a flawless finale to his series. Satisfying, meaty, and mind expanding.

His story at last comes to a close, not with a whimper or an abrupt rushed conclusion, but with life affirming authority. A complete triumph of storytelling.

Goodkind has a message, and he wraps the finale in all that has been learned from the previous 9 books. His message is absolute, and crosses from the world he created to our own without tainting it's meaning or veracity.

Goodkind's book becomes a Sword of Truth, cutting through the readers perceptions and piercing the heart. More than Rolling with Harry… Read more

The movie is devastating in it's depiction of the hardships of the African people. It makes it real with astonishing performances, and brilliant direction. The scenes of war, strife and turmoil will shake you to the bone. Yet, the overall movie and it's inevitable ending remains hopeful, and makes the viewer feel like they can make a difference.

The Matrix: The Ultimate Collection [HD DVD] <b>HD DVD</b> ~ Keanu Reeves
Highly anticipated, and well worth the wait. This collection is a triumph to the filmmakers, and a welcome boon to the fans of great movies and High Definition.

The benefits of this collection are too numerous to mention. Everything you want is here. Special features galore. So many, they nearly drip from the packaging. In-Movie experience, commentaries, behind the scenes, Making of's, interviews, etcetera, etcetera. Nothing is ignored.

The High Definition sound and picture quality are off the charts. Bullet-time slow-mos, and Sentinel death swarms erupt out of the screen. The sound-scape is totally engrossing and immersive.

I found only two complaints to… Read more
