My theme – I have selected a word for each day and will present to you blogger buddies who fit that description, along with movies, music, etc. My theme is to give back, highlight some awesome bloggers, and have fun in the process.
XTRA SPECIAL/X FOR MOVIE SIGN
She is the original Ninja! The DoJo Master leads her own army of Ninjas in training through a website, chats, and an online conference. The author of Become was also one of my first blogger buddy to review CassaStar, and she even did a video review. (Complete with space ship sound effects!) Get to know the Dojo Master – she is a sweetheart!
And now the upcoming big movies for May! As always, descriptions courtesy of the IMDB. Snarky comments by me.
Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D. brings together a team of super humans to form The Avengers to help save the Earth from Loki and his army.
Director: Joss Whedon

Joss Whedon? All of the Avengers? Are you kidding? There’s only one other movie I’m more excited about than this film.
DVD - Underworld: Awakening - What could be better than Kate in 3D?
An imprisoned vampire, Barnabas Collins, is set free and returns to his ancestral home, where his dysfunctional descendants are in need of his protection.

While the Burton-Depp pairing is usually great, I’m not totally sold on this one yet.
DVD - The Grey - Excellent drama
DVD - Chronicle - Dark and effective
A fleet of ships is forced to do battle with an armada of unknown origins in order to discover and thwart their destructive goals.

Funny, I don’t remember aliens landing on the board and melting my plastic ships when I played this game as a kid…
