[Plotting About] May News

May News 2022

Movie News:


The Batman: (HBO/MAX) I’m happy to report that Matt Reaves got it right. Great soundtrack. Great movie. There’s no stinger scene at the end of the credits.

Doctor Strange 2: Electric Boogaloo dropped this week with Thor 4 arriving in the July slot. After the last tv trailer, the spoilers started to drop so I’d suggest staying off social media until you see it. I enjoyed it and I’m happy to see Sam Raimi directing again.

Television News:

Outer Range: Amazon Prime – They’re dropping 2 episodes per Friday of this show. It’s Yellowstone meets Lost. I liked the first episode of this more than Epic’s From. Altho, the season finale was stuffed to the gills and should’ve slowed down.

Star Trek Strange New Worlds – Paramount Plus – They’ve posted the opening credits for SNW and it’s next to perfect except for the fact they called Enterprisean it and not a she. I think after 4 years of Discovery finally finding itself, SNW knocked it out of the park for a season premier. Star Trek: Strange New Worlds arrived on May 5th.

Stranger Things – NetflixSeason 4 trailer. Season 4 is split in 2. May 27th for part 1 and July 1st for part 2. Oddly enough. Part 1 drops on the same date as show about some old hermit…

Obi-Wan – Disney+ – Trailer. 2 episodes drop May 27th since they moved the premier.

Book News:

Kaiju Preservation Society by John Scalzi – I’m not a big Kaiju fan. I enjoyed Pacific Rim, hated the sequel, enjoyed Godzilla, the sequel didn’t really work, I enjoyed King Kong but the G vs. KK was a bit much. So, I’m happy to report that KPS by John Scalzi is a fun read that I finished in a day. Go out and find it. I recommend anything Scalzi has written, he’s a great author.

Braking Day by Adam Oyebanji – I read the preview and thankfully it dropped into Libby Library app. If you like generational ship shenanigans then this should fit in your wheelhouse.

RKB’s Picks

Moon Knight is..um, something about Egyptian avatars and gods and um, I haven’t a clue and I’m loving it just for the fact you have F. Murray Abraham as a voice. If you’re looking for a Marvel series that has no connections at all to Marvel then this is your show.

 

 

 

 

Farscape. It’s a name synonymous with Sci-Fi Fridays before Sci-Fi Channel became Syfy. It wasn’t Star Trek or Star Wars, more like Buck Rogers meets Jim Henson’s Creature Shop (and for good reason since Henson was involved). It’s on Amazon Prime, go watch it all and enjoy the breath of fresh air.

I should note, these previews I’ve been posting haven’t been edited so there are most assuredly spelling and grammar errors.

[Plotting About] When Riders Crosleigh – A Plodding Prologue

Welcome to September 2020.

For those who signed up for my mailing list I’ve been posting a few pages a month of the first chapter of the next book in the Stuk on the Hollow Series, When Riders Crosleigh.

The recent September mailer we came to an end of the prologue.

I decided to post it up on Wattpad in its entirety.

The cover is temporary and it has not been professionally edited.

The novel is a prequel so it takes place before, during and after Where Weavers Daire.

Hope you enjoy.
