Book Review: The Stolen: An American Faerie Tale By Bishop O'Connell

A housewife (Lee Eun-Woo) becomes enraged with jealousy over her husband's (Cho Jae-Hyun) affair. Meanwhile, their son (Seo Young-Joo) sits in the periphery, observing their violent confrontations.

Visual Kei Bands With A True Japanese Feel

Most of the time, when you read the name "Visual Kei" (ヴィジュアル系 or "bijuaru kei" romanized) your mind goes to outrageous outfits, incredibly styled and colored hair, makeup that is beyond crazy, and music that is not only catchy, but somewhat reminiscent to metal and rock music.

Marvel Announces The New Captain America

Starting in November there will be a new Captain America and his name is Sam Wilson aka The Falcon.  Announced on “The Colbert Report” by Joe Quesada, “Sam Wilson…The Falcon, is the new Captain America.”
 
Addressing how Sam Wilson will follow in the footsteps of his predecessor, Steve Rogers, Remender says, “Sam wantsto lead by example. To help people see their own selfishness and to turn it around. To build better communities, to never forget the little guy.” Remender continues, “Sam follows his heart and his belief in what the American dream means and how it belongs to everyone.”
The question remains: what happens with the original Captain America, Steve Rogers? Executive Editor Tom Brevoort says, “Steve’s spirit is as willing as ever, but his body is no longer up to the task of being Captain America. So he’ll employ his skills as the new Cap’s remote strategic advisor, running Cap’s missions from his headquarters in Avengers Mansion and providing Sam with technical support and field information from a distance. He’ll also tutor Sam in how to throw the shield, a skill that’s deceptively difficult for the new Cap to master. So Steve will continue to be a vital part of the series moving ahead.”

Marvel Has A New Look For Thor

Marvel is excited to announce an all-new era for the God of Thunder in brand new series, THOR, written by Jason Aaron (Thor: God of Thunder, Original Sin) complimented with art from Russell Dauterman (Cyclops).
 
This October, Marvel Comics evolves once again in one of the most shocking and exciting changes ever to shake one of Marvel’s “big three” – Captain American, Iron Man and Thor – Marvel Comics will be introducing an all-new THOR, GOD OF THUNDER. No longer is the classic male hero able to hold the mighty hammer, Mjölnir, a brand new female hero will emerge will who will be worthy of the name THOR. Who is she? Where did she come from and what is her connection to Asgard and the Marvel Universe?
 
“The inscription on Thor's hammer reads ‘Whosoever holds this hammer, if HE be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.’ Well it's time to update that inscription,” says Marvel editor Wil Moss. “The new Thor continues Marvel's proud tradition of strong female characters like Captain Marvel, Storm, Black Widow and more. And this new Thor isn't a temporary female substitute - she's now the one and only Thor, and she is worthy!”
 
Series writer Jason Aaron emphasizes, “This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is THOR. This is the THOR of the Marvel Universe. But it’s unlike any Thor we’ve ever seen before.”
 
THOR is the latest in the ever-growing and long list of female-centric titles that continues to invite new readers into the Marvel Universe. This female THOR is the 8th title to feature a lead female protagonist and aims to speak directly to an audience that long was not the target for Super Hero comic books in America: women and girls.

Nomino Review

Nomino is a new game app created by actor Dulè Hill, Talitha Watkins and Designer Rochelle Thwaites. The concept of this game is really unique. It takes the popular practice of posting photos online, then changes it into an interactive game. This challenges users to identify the subject of the photo or video in order to earn coins. The more coins you earn, the more you have to get  a prize. I've played the game for a few and I find it a bit challenging. The picture that was put up was random which made it even more challenging. However at the same time it's easy to answer. The reason for this is anyone can cheat on this game by Googling the answers. I highly suggest that they tweak the game a little. Maybe they can add a time limit so users won't have a chance to cheat. 

Overall this game is user friendly. However I just wish in the beginning of the game, they add a quick tutorial on how to use the app. The concept of earning points and getting prizes is great. However it will be better if there's more prizes. I know that the app is still young and has a lot more potential. I just can't help but think that they need to update the layout of the app. The layout needs to have the flow of the image and video go continually.

 After playing the game for almost a couple of hours. I only accumulate almost about 8,000 coins. This means I only averaged on answering 11 questions a day. That's why I really recommend that they give more rewards, or winning prizes for this game. Getting 395,000 points meant I have to average 24 questions a day. That being said the game will get iterating and people will lost interest on playing.

Nomino is available for iPad and iPhone in the AppStore, an Android version of Nomino is slated for release in mid-July.

Final Grade - 8/10

Affluenza Review

Affluenza is defined as a psychological malaise supposedly affecting wealthy young people, symptoms of which include a lack of motivation, feelings of guilt, and a sense of isolation. The movie follows four teenage stereotypes. Fisher Miller, is the outsider desperately trying to find a way to fit in. His ‘in’ to the group is a young man who recently entered the affluent elite himself, Dylan Carter. Dylan was the outsider his whole life until his mother married into the exclusive world of mansions and lavish parties. He bribes Fisher with a college recommendation to help him get Kate Miller, Fisher’s cousin, to fall as deeply in love with him as Dylan is with her. Kate, however, is already dating Todd, the rich douchebag who treats her horribly.


Sig de Miguel and Stephen Vincent did an incredible job casting these obnoxious teens. They found actors who not only gave their character depth but also worked incredibly well off each other. Ben Rosenfeld, Boardwalk Empire series regular, in the lead role as Fisher has a unique sensibility that makes you believe he is a little quirky yet still has the charm to not only wiggle his way into ‘high society’ but also created a mysterious suave magnetism that entices the ladies.  Rosenfeld had great onscreen chemistry with Greg Sulkin, from MTV’s Faking It, who plays Dylan Carson. He is a prime example of someone who could have everything but only wants what he can’t have. Sulkin also adds vibrant colors to the stereotypical love sick puppy dog, especially the desperate anger when he confronts Todd Goodman Kate’s ‘real’ boyfriend played by Grant Gustin, The Flash CW. In contrast to Barry Allen aka The Flash, Todd is an entitled overly judgemental boyfriend who never missed an opportunity to be patronizing or harsh to Kate. Gustin portrays his in a way that audiences still hate him but they also sympathize with him.


Despite some truly dynamic performances Affluenza just misses the mark. They set it up with immense potential but it seemed like screenwriter Antonia Macia and director Kevin Asch dropped the ball and missed a huge opportunity. The movie is set in the summer 2008 during the stock market crash. It seemed Affluenza would examine what happens to these teens when the wealth and exorbitant lifestyle they have come accustom to has been ripped from beneath them. Instead however it revolves around the trivial and typical downfall of teenage love.


If the woes of unrequited prepubescent love in Long Island with lavish parties, drugs and self destructive decisions sounds captivating Affluenza is the movie to see. It is available in select theatres as well as on demand on Itunes and Amazon.




Final Score: 2/5

Five Cancelled Shows Netflix Should Pick Up

If there is one thing I hate about television is watching a good show get cancel before it's conclusion. Lately it seems networks such as FOX, ABC, CBS and NBC cancel shows quickly after one season. Thankfully the way we received our entertainment is changing. Streaming sites such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon are now producing and buying content. Since I'm a Netflix guy there are five shows that I feel that were cancel too early, that will be great for the streaming service. Check out my list below. Then you tell me what shows you would like to see Netflix pick up in the comment section.

1. Mixology

To my shame I discovered this show on Netflix recently, not when it originality aired on ABC. "Mixology" is a show about ten people in a bar on a quest to find love. This show was hilarious, and it does great job of flushing out each character giving them a strong backstory. The highlight of the show was the chemistry between Tom and Maya played by Blake Lee and Ginger Gonzaga. Maya had to be my favorite character because she had more layers to her compare to the others. The season ended with people pairing up and some going separate ways. Since the second season was not picked up, I would love to see what happens after they left the bar.

2. Almost Human

When FOX announced that "Almost Human" will not be returning fans were pissed. The show started off strong in the ratings and had a steady decline. I don't whether it was a production cost, or the ratings that saw the shows demise. Still "Almost Human" was a great show and had a lot of potential. It's one of the few Sci-Fi show on basic television, it was refreshing to see something different to sink your teeth into. I think "Almost Human" has a strong enough fanbase that can bring in new subscribers to Netflix.

3. The Tomorrow People

Regardless if you're a CW fan or not. "The Tomorrow People" had a pretty good following. The show started off strong but the later episodes were a hit or miss. It wasn't the best show on television, however it's was entertaining. I would like to see at least another season or two to flush out character arcs, story arcs and see what happens.

4. Alphas


If there is one thing any fan hate is a show ending on a cliffhanger, then getting cancelled. Alphas was one of the best shows on SyFy. The ratings had a struggle during season two which lead to it's cancellation. Netflix should pick up this hidden gem for at least one more season to flush out the story arc. The fans of SyFy will really thank them for it.

5. TRON Uprising


As a TRON fan I really would love at least another season of "TRON Uprising." Cancelled on Disney XD (really Disney) this show was one of the great animation shows on Disney XD. It brought me back to the times I use to watch cartoons in the 90's. It had adult themes, moral lessons and the animation was really good. Not to the mention the soundtrack had renditions of the Daft Punk's "TRON Legacy" soundtrack.

Vanguard Princess Spotlight


Vanguard princess is a 2-D fighter with a full roster of interesting female characters that has just made it to steam through greenlight. Originally released in 2009 built in 2-D Fighter Maker vanguard princess is on steam for $4.99 (U.S.D) and worth checking out. The centerpiece to this game is really the fluidity and design of the sprites, which is no surprise considering Tomoaki Sugeno spearheaded this project and yes the game is very ecchi but you know what your getting into. While the controls and button mapping are kinda wonky and need some work, it is still a cool fighter where all of the cast has a unique style of fighting that helps every character stand out from the bunch. Vanguard Princess is an interesting take on 2-D fighters with stunning sprites that deserves some love check it out on steam here.

Lenni Reviews: The Stolen: An American Faerie Tale by Bishop O'Connell


Caitlin comes home to a parent's worst nightmare, her child being kidnapped. What's worse, it's by fairies. A chance encounter at an art gallery brings the one person best suited to help get her daughter back; a berzerker warrior named Brendon. With him, a wizard named Eddie, and the magister of the Rogue Court, Dante; they embark on a multi-world mission to rescue Caitlin's daughter, Fiona, from the dark fae.

Again, another author spots my weakness; dark fantasy. There's a bit of a ramble getting the adventure started and small dragging moments in the narrative, but not a character is wasted here. You feel for all of them; Brendon's heartache, Caitlin's panic, Eddie's resolve, and Dante's sense of responsibility and loyalty. Learning and interacting with all the different kinds of fae as they journey to save Fiona, is handled in context and quickly. There isn't any long exposition or chapter breaks to describe each type of creature. You learn what you need to know at the time and the rest of the time is spent on the adventure itself. I don't personally mind such things but some do.

How it all worked out was unexpected and I was very pleased with that. The way everything was connected at the end wasn't so much as a surprise but it seemed fitting. It wasn't neat, it wasn't pretty, it wasn't happily ever after; but it fit. This counts for a lot in these days of cookie cutter paranormal romances flooding the market. An ending in a fantasy grounded in reality (somewhat) is a breath of fresh air.

I certainly hope this book has a sequel. The writing is efficient and crisp; I dived right into this world and I'm curious to see where things go from here. I would love to see this expanded and with such efficient writing, it leaves me wondering what O'Connell could do with this world next. 

Can't get enough of Lenni's writing? See more here.
