Book Review: Velocity Weapon ☄🌌🚀🛰☄🌌🚀🛰🛸

Velocity Weapon by Megan E. O'Keefe

Book 1 of 'The Protectorate' is a tale of war, howls of grievance, AI, tantrums, thieves, lies and a doomed denoument. This was completly ludicrous, terribly dramatic and mildly daft. The plotline is rather mad. Characters are deeply unpleasant and pretty goddam useless. There is corrosive advice and psychotic behaviour. Nobody has unfailing attention and concern. Nobody has a healthy well balanced view of life. This fails dismally.


Best Lines:

“That timeline is irrelevant on human terms.”


“Forever revealed him to have doubt.”


“We took 'em with us to the stars,”


“They did bad things.”

Movie Reviews: Ghost Stories + Home By Christmas 👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮

Ghost Stories (2017)

I saw the play, it was far superior to this medicore film. Martin Freeman is in this. A man asks uncomfortable questions in this causeless film. A man has unquestioning faith in himself and his skepicism. The man has 'credible solutions' to ghosts. There is bad make up. This was doomed to failure. Spooky stories are told in this disastrous film which is full of whimsical notions. There is a crazy kid.


Unsubstantiated stories impact negatively. This is of no consequence. Is there underlying evil? This was a vile abominaiton that is not high intensity. This is particularly frustrating. Freeman wears a flat cap and plays a burk. There is no compelling justification for this.


There is 'death' and gurning. The 'hero' has considerable distress, he's abusive and insulting. The ending makes no sense.


Best Lines:

“Be so very careful.”


“Prayer cards.”


“Hey presto he's psychic.”


“Only here cos she ran out of booze.”


“A man who spent a lifetime explaining away mysteries became one himself.”


“It's all true. Every last bit of it.”


“Things are not always as they seem.”


“That's right you did nothing.”


“Coma. Possible lock-in.”

Home By Christmas (2006)

This ostensibly serious film is treated with all the weight of serious drama. Yet is ridiculously stupid. Garwin Sanford leaves Linda Hamilton after 21 years. She realises how aggressively terrible he is. This fails miserably. Her daughter brats. Hamilton has no money or friends until the happy ending.

Brave New World

People wake up on an island in this miniseries. There is duplicity and the people are very clean and well dressed and can't recall their names. A blonde has a knife. People act intrinsically superior. The opening credits are bad. There are constrained cirumstances.


A guy has odiousness. Things don't add up. Blondie is confrontational and abhorrent. A woman is nearly coerced into sexual activity. They have name tags in their shirts. There is no coherent or informed advice. There is a negative challenging tone.


There is deliberate provocation and strange items. TPTB mock 'Lost'. There is improper purpose and a book and perfidy and irrationality and ineliminable stupidity. A nice guy turns out to be a perv. There is a shark and no shared attiudes, emotions and values. Someone is chewed by the shark.


This is 7 eps long. This was unproductive. The trailer gave away too much. Decorum is undermined and I am relatively intrigued. There is disharmony and this was profoundly stupid. Things get immeasurably dangerous and a terrible pall is cast. There is impertinence and windbaggery and selective hostility.


The blonde bitch who bitches is KC. A weird sign is found. Inside a shell is a tracker and a mark in the shell. Neil LaBute directed this. KC is played by Kate Bosworth. Alex Pettyfer is in this. Is the dark haired shrieky girl the one from 'The Crossing'? Yes! This was not riveting and there are spiteful accusations and street bitches.


Best Lines:

“I don't think this is team building.”


“Time for the gun show.”


“Dead bodies don't float. At first. Takes a while.”


“Silently judges.”


“Insane talk.”


“Don't know where where is!”


The Gorgeous Palace

Shrieky finds a raft. There are not so good times. Shrieky hides the raft. There is no rapprochment just inequity. The perv's actions are ignored and shrugged off. The people do not stand united, resolute and in total solidarity. There is objectionable behaviour. People resist change.


Best Line:

“My antics?”

Episode 1

A limited series based on an article. A girl who lives in an At Risk Youth housing development says she was attacked. Her unreliability is almost inevitably cited. There is no concern or ethics. There is no meaningful process just discreditable behaviour by cops, the girl's foster mothers and those who are meant to help her.


People make no secret of their distain for her. There is police foolishness and incompetence. There is pretensions. There are irresolvable questions. No one comforts her. Ever. The girl, Marie, has a long medical exam. She's disconnected, disengaged and sidelined. This was lukewarm. Toni Collette will be in this later.


Nobody radiates niceness or earnestness. Marie had a lot of foster mothers. This hinders her future. This was soporific and ignominable. Marie is maudlin and misearble and this has no momentum. There is talkiness and unyielding people. This is not a searing dissection of the case of a wronged woman.


Marie acts unreasonably in people's eyes. People are horrendous to her. This was a complte disaster. People turn on Marie. One foster mother tells the cops that Marie made it up because she wants attention. The article says Marie forgave the foster mother for this terrible betrayal. WHY?!?


This was not affecting. This was beyond plausible even if it all really happend. People are unfair and there is grim realism. There is no emotional heft. There is disgraceful and unacceptable behaviour. People are reckless and irresponsible. There is no clarity or confidence.


This is a ghastly business. This fails to make much of an impression. Cops are unmerciful. This strains credulity. There is melancholy. The cops don't bother to look for the perpatrator. Marie is made to say it didn't happen and threatened with arrest and homelessness. She's mistreated and scorned.


Best Lines:

“Haven't been cared for.”


“Thoughts of killing yourself.”


“Give you a hard time about lying.”


“Take back your statement taking back your statement?”


“There are children present!”


“Look at me behaviour.”
