Review: Ptolemy’s Gate – Jonathan Stroud

A wild imagination is needed for this book, it draws all the images of history together tying it together to Nathanial’s present predicament. The third book of Bartimaeus Trilogy, it is amazing climax to the end of the trilogy. Each book of this trilogy has amazing characters, a colorful and historical storyline, pulling together so many interesting magical characters throughout history and giving you a different view of them and their characters. The last of the trilogy keeps the adventure and mystery going while answering so many questions that have developed since starting this trilogy years ago. It took me a long time to finish this trilogy, I think its because I didn’t want to finish it since I enjoyed it so much. I wouldn’t want to ruin the book or the trilogy for anyone, but if you like fantasy then you will love this book, the ending left me wanting more but still satisfied. Its difficult to find books as good as these.

I have always been a huge fan of fantasy and sci-fi movies, and especially comic book movies that have been coming out. I can’t way to see Wolverine and Transformers 2 this summer. Then there are the other movies such as Green Lantern, Harry Potter, and Sherlock Holmes to look forward to. I wonder who would they cast for Green Lantern’s character.

Review: The Mummy: Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor

There was a lot of hype revolving this release of The Mummy, and I thought it would be interesting. At this rate sort of have the storyline down, monster comes alive, Brandon has to find a way to kill monster, the end. So I thought they had to have a slightly different approach to keep things interesting. I was wrong, it felt like it wasn’t put together correctly, it doesn’t flow well and you don’t know all the characters as you get to know them before. And I thought Jet Li had a bigger role, but not enough martial arts. I wouldn’t go to this movie if you haven’t seen it, there are better ones out there.
