My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Touching, emotional, and dedicated to home, country, family, and peace – war is inevitable – things must get worse before things can get better. For one family the loss is far too great a burden. They must find the young soldier in the heart of battle, and send him home – three of his brothers have fallen, and his parents need him home. Tom Hanks best film, his heart was visible upon his sleeve as he portrayed the seriousness of the matter – amen. May God keep His soldiers forever in peace.

Red Dragon by Thomas Harris

Red Dragon (Hannibal Lecter, #1)Red Dragon by Thomas Harris
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Having to come out of early retirement (due to the PTSD he suffered in the capture of Hannibal Lecter) this FBI Agent has another creature to capture. The young agent must face Lecter, seek his assistance, in order to find “The Tooth Fairy”. There’s more than just his anxiety on the line though, as he approaches Lecter’s dungeonous prison. His family’s lives are at stake. If you have not read all of the Hannibal books, or seen all of the films, now is the time to do so. There’s more to Hannibal than what meets the eye in this book, and we all know that Anthony Hopkins’ best role, his tue creepiness, has been Lecter.

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. HydeThe Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Too many of the older books have been put to film before the next generation even realizes that it started out as a book! Jekyll and Hyde – Stevenson took his time with word crafting – thrilling, murderously bringing to life both sides of the Doctor’s character, the good in him and his evil – while writing each line with a deliberate cause. Some books must be read, prior to film viewing, and not to do so with this book, would be a crying shame. Sitting on the edge of your seat; you’re about to take a walk down the forbidden lane of science.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I think every word in the English language (and many others) have been used to describe this story. Words like fascinating, thrilling, brilliant, time-honored, smashing, genius and they are all true in their description. If by chance you have yet to visit the theaters, live theatrical plays and/or the big screen theater, do the story the justice it so deserves and read the book prior to any visual outside the mind’s eye and imagination. The culture, the time of the era, the costumes, the words to every song have deep meaning and you will not want to miss a moment of this classic.

The Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book has been on my reading list for several years, but I finally got around to reading it last winter. Shortly after which, we curled up with a bowl of popcorn and watched the film, starring Elizabeth Taylor – a woman with a wicked temper she feels no need for a man, letting her poor father know it. Shakespeare’s writings have always enthralled me and The Taming of the Shrew was one that not only captured my full attention but tickled my funny bone with humor as I followed this young feisty woman through a world of male domination and female suppression while she fought to maintain her independence.
