Video Game Review: Phoenix Wright Dual Destinies

Ace_Attorney_5_cover

About the game:

The dark ages of law has began 10 years ago. Now it’s up to the team to stop the darkness from taking over.

 

My thoughts:

 

This in my opinion is the worst Phoenix Wright game ever. I enjoy the first half of the game but the murder at the space center made the game worst. After dealing with the same case over and over again. Trying to find out who did it.

 

I give this game 2 disappoint stars out of 5 amazing stars.

Movie Review: Cars 3 2017

Spoilers Warning  I will leave that I give the movie 3 stars in cause you don’t want to be spoiled. I don’t spoil the whole movie just points of the movie that I think is important.

 

Hello Everyone,

I was so lucky to get tickets to special screen for across Canada event last Wednesday.  It is the reason this review is so late. Cars 3 came out friday but I was not allowed to talk about it till today.  So lets Ka- Chow on this review.

About The Movie:

Lightning McQueen is having some fantastic years of racing with his friend. All is going well until Jackson Storm appears as the new rookie. Lightning finds out you can’t be the best racer forever.

Movie: 1 Hr 48 Mins.

 

My thoughts:

I felt this movie had nothing to do with Lightning McQueen training to become the faster and better then Jackson Storm.  It was more about growing up and realizing that you can’t always be the best.  That you can help someone to become the best after you.

I really love the nod and the fact the movie was a lot base on Doc Hudson. It made me feel warm and fuzzy inside.

This is the prefect ending to the Cars series.

I give this movie 3 stars out of 5 stars.

Book Review: Beartown By Fredrik Backman

(Trigger Warning for Rape)

Hello Everyone,

We are only 12 followers away from my next giveaway.

I was sent this book through Netgalley for a honest review.

About the book:

Beartown in a hockey town. The citizens of Beartown breath and eat hockey. When their best player is accused of rape the town is upside down. A hockey player couldn’t rape a girl. Could he?

 

My Thoughts:

I really like the book. I really felt the hockey elements of the book was true to the game of hockey. I also felt the way the rape and after mass was also spot on. The only issues I had was at some points it was slow going.

 

I gave this book 3 stars out of 5 stars.

Book Review: The Time Keepers By Jenn Bregman

I was sent this book for a honest review.

 

33950738

About the book(Goodreads):

A fast-paced thriller, The TimeKeepers plunges headlong into the depraved underbelly of Big Law and big money where greed is king, murder is incidental, and winning is the only thing that matters.

Attorney Sarah Brockman is young, idealistic, and naïve. Having left Big Law in search of work that would make a difference, she finds herself barely scraping by running her own personal injury law firm working for clients who can’t pay and pursuing causes she can’t win. Then a random horrific car crash shatters everything. Now she’s staring into the darkest shadows of the very system she’s dedicated her life to upholding, filled with corrupt judges, dirty cops and attorneys, offshore banking, massive fraud, and twists and turns through the highways and byways of Southern California, Mexico and the Cook Islands.

Facing off against a cunning and deranged adversary, Sarah is aided by a sharp-witted socialite, a felon and occasional crackhead, and a shameless Mexican raconteur. All while kindling a tender romance with Sam, her boyishly handsome new love, who has been following the same trail but from the other end – and the wrong side of the law.

Sarah feels invisible strings pulling her ever closer to the core of the conspiracy. But if she’s just a pawn in someone else’s game, are the strings being pulled for good or for bad? Or, even, both? And will she be on the side that wins?

 

My Thoughts:

What I loved about the book:

  • A main female character. I found a female lawyer was refreshing and a rare thing in books.
  • The book cover is awesome. I really love the skyline being over lapped with a analog clock. Really nice touch.
  • The case in the book is really interesting. No I am not going to spoil it for you.

 

What I didn’t like:

  • I felt the book was 60% romance and only 40% thriller. The book lost my undivided attention after chapter 13.
  • I feel the relationship between Sarah and Sam felted rushed and not real. It really felt like something the author shoved in there to eat up pages.

 

My opinion:

I do give Jenn Bregman  props for taking a chance on this book and see her writing style growing as a writer. This book to be honest was not for me. I would have love if the book kept the romance at 30% to 20% of the book. It would have made the book flow so much better.

However I am glad to had a chance to read a arc of this book.

 

I give this book 1 out of 5 stars. This book really was not for me.

Movie Review: King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword

Hello Everyone,

My sister and I went to see King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword which is the first movie in a 6 movie series.

images

About the movie:

Robbed of his birthright, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy – whether he likes it or not.

 

My thoughts:

I don’t know why this movie got back reviews but I loved it. I thought it was a refreshing retelling of King Arthur.

Yes it was dark in a lot of parts and yes it didn’t stick to the story of King Arthur from the book. But really what movie really sticks to the book.

The movie was really about the sword and not king Arthur. Arthur only plays a small part in the movie while the legend of the sword played a big part.

If you going into knowing this. I am sure you’ll love the movie as much as I did.

 

I gave this movie 4 out of 5 stars.

The Hidden Oracle By Rick Riordan

About the book:

Apollo ticks off Zeus again and from there it becomes a horrible book.

My thoughts:

It was a really badly written book. I dislike Apollo from the beginning and don’t think he should get a book series.

1 star

1 star

13360957

About the book:

Theo ‘s best friend was kidnapped but not kidnapped by anyone. She has to deal with her eating disorder  and the fact that her ex boyfriend kidnapped her best friend.

This book would have been much better if it was a adult book. I also like to give a warning that this book has to deal with eating disorders and rape.

2 stars

 

33652490

About the book:

A book filled with short stories about Men and Women lives.

 

My thoughts:

A lot of the stories where bland to say the least. My fave. was Drive My Car.  Which was about a woman driver driving a actor to and from work.

 

3 stars

 

28363991

 

About the Book:

It tells the story of working on the Carol Burnett show and about how it got started, stories about the famous people who were guest and much more.

 

My thoughts:

I listen to this on audio and it was read by Carol Burnett herself. I felt she add a bit of herself that really made the book seem like you being right there with her.  I am going to be listening to her other books on Audio.

4 stars
