As anticipated, I failed to follow through on my idea to write a post a week about a movie, game, or book that I wanted to share. So here is several weeks’ worth!
First, the trailer you’ve probably already heard about and seen, for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. I’ve loved the Indiana Jones movies since I was a kid, so I’m looking forward to this one. It was supposed to happen in the summer of 2005, then maybe in 2006 or 2007; hopefully the finished product will be better late than never! I think Steven Spielberg will keep George Lucas from bungling this up as he did the three most recent Star Wars movies.
Second, a new movie you may not have heard much about: Iron Man. I’m not big on comic books and have never been a fan of Iron Man in particular, but the trailers look extremely cool. Jon Favreau is directing, which is good because Jon Favreau is awesome.
Last but not least, I just finished Robert Ferrigno‘s recently released Sins of the Assassin. I really enjoyed Prayers for the Assassin, the first book in the trilogy, and the second does not disappoint. Ferrigno paints a convincing, frightening world and drags his characters through exciting twists and turns that are a lot of fun to read. If you like a good few hundred pages of fictitious action, it’s highly recommended.
