Book Review: Moonbreaker

Moonbreaker by Simon R. Green

The 'hero' is plague stricken and he and his bint galpal run around causing clamour. There is no sense of purpose in this series anymore as grave consequences are shrugged off as Eddie engages in his favourite hobby of flesh tearing and soul harvesting. There is no eerie sense of dread or quality.


Best Lines:

“Nasty little secrets.”


“Hostile incursions.”


“Reaching out for help that would never come.”


“Wars no one was allowed to remember.”


“Something was called up here and not put down again properly.”


“A prison within a prison, because we had to be sure, or we'd never have felt safe again.”


“Carry the burden of that knowledge.”


“I'll never give up.”

“Yes you will, I thought.”


“The angel God set in place outside the Gates of Eden with a flaming sword, to make sure humanity could never get back inside.”


“Ask for his mercy; we have none.”


“Droods aren't afraid of Heaven or Hell. It's our job to make them afraid of us.”

Movie Reviews: Cofee & Kareem + Dark Light

Cofee & Kareem (2020)

Taraji P. Henson of 'Person Of Interest' is a single mom in Detroit who dates a cop to the massive shock of her potty mouthed tween son. The son sees perceived slights and real life refuses to conform to what Kareem has seen in his favourite movies. He plans to ask a gangster to kick his would be stepdad's ass.


The cop has a mean coworker (Betty Gilpin of 'GLOW'). Kareem is darkly jealous and a gangster escapes custody and kills people. The cop faces persistent harassment and humiliation. Kareem is noisy with frustration. Many attendant miseries are heaped on the cop who carries the weight of the criticism.


The cop severely mismanages outrageous calumny. Kareem is a foul mouthed rap fan and is unduly negative. Kareem has unfair perceptions and deeper causes of mistrust and he's an outright disgrace. There is continuing commitment to dumb choices.


Kareem is disruptive from the start and plans the downfall of those who dare to challenge him. His shallow self absorption sees him witness a crime. The gangster chases him and Kareem keeps on being stupid and sexist. This whole movie is stupid and sexist. This was disastrously flawed and there is gunfire and Kareem has no apprehension, uncertainty and anxiety. Kareem is not regretful. Where is the social fallout of all this?


There is a cascade of trouble. Kareem entirely rejects sense. This was unconvincing and there are negative social consequences. The cop, Kareem and the mom head into danger. This was not very interesting. There is violence and toxic masculinity. The cop ends up on the news and not in a good way.


Kareem tasers his mom. This was not socially engaged and people are desperate and determined. Kareem is dangerously obsessed. The cop is branded a psycho cop. Kareem is tersely awful admid the peril, seriousness and rising panic. This was not fateful and there is no dramatic urgency. There are lethal issues and Kareem has no concern. There is a hopeless problem and Kareem derides and disparages.


Kareem has a repertoire of behaviour and is exasperating. He planned wilful assault and unnecessary suffering. There is a fight in a drug lab and serious undertones are shrugged off. How little was expected and how little was delivered. The mean cop has indecent relish. This is not of great consequence. There is a pent up yearning for violence and no innate dynamism. The cop has a capacity to surmount trials.


There is betrayal, unforseen events and survival demands ingenuity, patience and humility and resilence and solidarity and a collective capacity to overcome adversity. There is criminal intent and collective gasps and yelling and swearing and this doesn't necessarily make sense. Kareem gets away with everything.


The single mother is thankless and lets her brat son away with it all. They ends up in a precarious situation. The baddie is grimly obvious and the mean cop has an absolute last resort having exhausted all other options. There is no emotional regulation and nobody supplies them with sense. There is no reflection on issues.


People are intractable and there is no underlying merit. There are fundamental challenges and there is rapprochement and this was unbelievably stupid. There is widespread condemnation and people act under the threat of violence. If you have nothing to do in life: watch this.


Best Lines:

“Shy is not the word I would use.”


“That is not the response I was looking for.”


“Just got out of juvie.”


“Only perverts wear crocs.”


“Grind the old coffee bean.”


“Showing everyone how to earn detention.”


“Dope ass Nic Cage movie.”


“You were BFFs with a grown ass man? That's so sick! There's literally documentaries on Netflix about why that's so sick!”


“You're not being stealthy.”


“Pay us in loose change.”


“Shoot back!”


“That's what you're concerned about?”


“Dangerous psychotic break.”


“Keto bullsh*t.”


“Take you to the nastiest stripclub in all of Detroit.”


“Grooming me to be your child wife.”


“It's messed up that you're threatening me with that. But it's also messed up that you thought of it.”


“F***k you until you love me.”


“I handled them like their mothers should have.”


“All of your sexual needs and desires.”


“So broke and sad.”


“You need to stay off reddit.”


“Step to it bitch!”


“Murder-suicided it.”


“Horrible choices.”


“GO HOME! WORK ON YOUR MARRIAGES!”

Dark Light (2019)

A mother faces significant difficult and unnecessary stress. She shot her ex husband and now their daughter is missing. This is told in flashback. There are shattered lives and this was a major failure. There is rumour mongering and this was appalling. The mother is loathsome she is unconcerned and has a superior and antagonistic tone. This was inconsequential.


There are irreversible impacts in this fiasco and there is a vague threat. This causes a hugely negative reaction. There is dissonance and the mother is crass. Did she do an unconscionable thing? She struggles to function and has a history of crack ups.


It is not a time of unease. The mother fails to endear herself and is not agreeable company. There is no forgiving vagueness and no tension or wit. People have ulterior self interested motives in extraordinarily difficult cirumstances.


The mother is a nasty woman in a ramshackle film full of unnecessarily murky confusion. She propesies doom and is cold and unforgiving. Enemies are circling and she has inability. She watches a youtube video about lizard people or something. There is no strange sense of unease. There is collective distrust and resentment which spills over into violence. There is bad acting and no likeability just rancour.


She's not virtuous. Leave the damn house! There is no intrigue and this is not a dark paranoid fantasy. I've an aversion to this dull improbable mess. There is a sense of abandonment and disilusionment. This is not subtle and the mother is unambiguously malign. This was not laden with tragedy.


There is exposition and this was an empty void of non-strangeness. This was a nuisance and the mother expresses her displeasure. One is visibly appalled by this abominaton. There is a shotgun, a stash and a 'monster'.


Best Lines:

“Why aren't you helping me?”


“I'm sorry you're back here again.”

“No you're not.”


“Not kids in the field.”


“Saw lights again last night.”


“I believe you.”

“Do you?”


“You are not fine.”


“Are you having another nervous breakdown?”

Arrow 8x10 + Continuum 4x06 + The Act 1x03&1x04 + The Time Tunnel 1x22 + STTNG 3x20 Reviewed

Fadeout

The final ever ep. Oliver is Spectre. I'm laughing. Moira has been brought back to life. How do people remember the Crisis? Dinah is SCPD captain but in 8x09 she wasn't and had been erased from existence. Here she hasn't been.


The 'Emerald Archer' documentary is seen and people are mournful for Oliver. This was not affecting. Lance is alive again and Paul Blackthorne is still bald. Laurel lurks in this tranquilisingly dull ep. Lance (the former jackass) is mayor. Oliver never expressed regret for his multiple murders. Sara lurks. Oliver didn't save his Laurel from death. Mia needs to desist from annoying. Thea and Roy broke up. Emiko is alive and not a baddie.


Felicity bores and she was a bad mother. Oliver was an ass, he deserved whatever bad things came his way. Oliver had horrible intent and walked a lonely path. There are no moral or ethical stakes. Mia appears after the cliffhanger of 8x09 – where is William? She doesn't seem concerned.


Meanwhile William has been abducted in the present. Thea bitches and there is no desperate heroism. What awaits on the far side of the Crisis is not pretty. Felicity mumbles and there is no scrupulous regard. William was bugged by Felicity?


There is a Kord mention and Thea needs a good kicking. Roy proposes. Ragman shows up. What became of Athena? Diggle wears his stupid helmet one last time and Lyla gets hysteircal. Mia tries to be threatening and Oliver was never reticent about killing poeple. TPTB impose respectability, reverence and unquestioning respect on Oliver. But it is a joke. There are fight scenes and incoherence and I've no idea what is going on.


What rights should a citizen expect from the state in which they live? Not to be murdered by an unrepentant vigilante who is then proclaimed a hero. There are social tensions and Oliver acted like murdering people was a justified response to everything. Doesn't William remember this abduction or meeting Mia? Oliver oppressed people that were already oppressed.


Oliver never encouraged good behaviour and people excused him. Oliver was indefensible. Diggle tries to show how tough he is – get a real job! How did the Queen family get stately Queen manor back? What happened to Thea being a junkie? Did she ever graduate high school?


Tommy's alive. Will he appear in the Mia spin off? Thea and Tommy never speak or mention being half siblings. Where is Slade and his sons? Diggle moves. What qualifications does Rene have to be mayor? The Arrowcave is shut down and Oliver was not a founding moment. There is no calm resolve.


The candlelit vigil and statue at Oliver's funeral makes me want to puke. Lance has to apologise for doing his job. Oliver was not a good man. Lance does a stupid speech. This was verbose yet content free. Oliver didn't fix his father murdering the other man on the raft. Thea and Emiko chat – they aren't related! Moira is nice to Emiko. Tommy and Black Siren chat. Tommy's shaved off the beard and he married Laurel! So Oliver didn't steal her in this post Crisis world.


How did Laurel die? Much has changed since 1x01. Talia and her sister show up. William is barely acknowledged at the funeral. Barry's there. Why didn't Oliver undo the death of Tommy's mom and William's mother? Kara and the Russian are there. Dinah bikes down Oliver Queen Memorial Drive.


Felicity ditches Mia and William to spend eternity in a crappy looking afterlife with Oliver. Selfish to the end. Diggle does Oliver's eulogy. It should have been Tommy – his BEST FRIEND! Sara Diggle is back and Diggle has an encounter in a Green Lantern homage. This was unchallenged crap.


Best Lines:

“World of heroes.”


“Rebooted the universe.”


“Less so.”


“Time portal.”


“Killing him is justice.”


“A new generation of heroes.”


“We buried a casket full of momentos.”


“Take that mission to the rest of the world. Maybe even beyond that.”


“Father's perverse joke.”


“How to be like him.”


“Brought heroes into the world.”


“His mission endures.”


“Where I'm taking you. There is no return.”

Final Hour

Kiera lies and where is Alec's brother? Kiera never explains her reasoning fully. People blather about a dark future. All Liber8's sins return. Brad growls and vicious and bloody events happen. As do secret and shameful things. Some bimbo whines. Alec's crazy stepdad mumbles. Things go awry.


There is a lack of discipline or resolve. People are vindictive tools and this final ever ep was umimpressive. There is pain, despair, fury and vicious and overwhelming hatred. Dillion is told the truth again. People end up in the hell they made. The bad guy does unpleasant things. This was unremarkable and an utter bore.


This is a dreadful warning of how a show can go downhill. There is death and a baddie kills his own daughter with a screwdriver. Mercy is out of the question. The world won't miss these people. Brad's words are poison. Nutjobs are pitiless. There are no moral concerns and will someone kill Brad already? Nobody has integrity. Assertions are made and 1/2 this ep is idleness.


There are too many negative associations. Kiera thinks she's god's will made manifest. There is chronoflow and the currents of fate have their own plan. There is desolate cold and inflexible rage and more death. Kiera heads back to the future. Why isn't Brad dead? Carlos and co plan to build a better future. The bad guy is dumped into the distant distant past. What'll become of him? Kiera is home and exposition flies.


Old Alec greets her and there is no Liber8 and no bad future. This was really bad. There is a memorial park for Carlos. Alec married Emily. Kiera sees her son Sam but there is a but. The new timeline's Kiera is his mother. Kiera has to held back and cries. All for naught! Julian helped build the better future. Actions figures move by themselves and the price for changing the future is that Kiera can't be with the son she has been trying to get to since 1x01. She cries. It ends.


Best Lines:

“A very nasty place in 60 years.”


“Treated in a manner defitting your importance.”


“Screwed up my life.”


“Sounds ominious.”


“I betrayed people.”


“What would be.”


“Kill everyone!”


“I chose me.”


“Time ball.”


“What's Liber8?”


“Protesting the old corparations.”


“A barbaric and uncivilised age.”


“Made a better world.”

Two Wolverines

Dee Dee and Gypsy have an insular relationship. Dee Dee counts money and men show up. Gypsy dresses up as Belle but Dee Dee makes her change into Cinderella. Why do they go to the cons? Dee Dee is the greatest shame. She lies to Gypsy about her age. Gypsy's baby voice annoys. Dee Dee gets a man friend as does Gypsy.


This was appalling with no functional relationships. Gypsy is dumb. This was not fascinating or disturbing. Dee Dee has hysterics and causes indignities and inconveniences. There are terrible secrets and Gypsy looks at fan art and gets a phone. Gypsy and Dee Dee have a shared Facebook account. It is 2011 and Gypsy is defeated and subjugated. Dee Dee undermines and withholds and pretends to be impeeccable. Gypsy is property. This was grubby horror and Gypsy is 19 and this was nigh unwatchable.


Best Lines:

“Simple things make me happy.”


“Take me far away from here to someplace really special you know, like Arkansas maybe.”


Stay Inside

It is 2013 and Dee Dee gravely intones and gaslights. This was not remarkably effective. There is no rational functioning and no just no. This was morally polluted. There is domestic unease and I turned this off about 5 minutes in.
