Legion Series and John Wick 2 Review, IWSG a Top 100 Site, Hank Hogs Number One, New Releases, and Movie Trivia Answers

Legion Series Premier

Based on the Marvel Comics, it follows a troubled young man who may be the most powerful mutant ever. Airs Wednesday nights.
Talk about must-see television! This might be the best series opener I’ve ever seen. This could’ve been a major motion picture with all of the talent and skill they poured into it.
Written and created by Noah Hawley, the genius behind television’s Fargo, Legion delivers on every level. Everything about the show – cast, writing, cinematography, direction – is out of this world.
However, this is an X-Men show for adults only. It’s dark and mature.
Even if you’re not a superhero fan, you’ll be enthralled with this show.
Highly recommended!


Movie Review – John Wick: Chapter 2

John Wick is forced from retirement to repay a marker. A large body count ensues.
This one is for true action fans only. The plot is thread-bare at best. And when the action kicks in, it doesn’t let up. For almost two hours.
High marks for location and style. Reeves and cast do a fine job with what they’re given.
My main complaint is the excessive, non-stop violence. After about fifty people had been shot in the head at point-blank range, I lost track. I think it ended somewhere around two hundred. Maybe more.
If you like your action films brutal and violent, this film is right up your alley.



The IWSG Made a List!

The IWSG was listed under Writing Communities for The Write Life’s 100 Best Websites for Writers for 2017!

Thanks to all of you who are part of that community, either through the weekly posting, following the site, following us on Twitter, receiving the newsletter, or part of the Facebook group.

We have some big things planned this year and we’ll be announcing those plans as they come together.

Special Writer Feature

We have such a great community of bloggers and writers here that I’ve decided to start featuring some cool people you may not have met yet.

Today I’m featuring Hank Kaykuala who blogs at Rainbow.

Hank is a poet who lives in Kuala Lumper in Malaysia. He has two published books - Rainbow - Poetry and Prose and Pearls That Shine, published under pen name Hank P. Luz.

I met Hank a few years ago, and while I don’t always understand poetry, I can certainly recognize his incredible talent at taking a few random words and making something beautiful. He’s also fast on the draw, getting the top comment spot almost every time. (Kind of like a Ninja, he just slips in.) The dude rocks!

Why the passion for the genre you write?
1. It allows one to venture out further into realms of creative writing
2. Poetry allows openness without inhibitions in language usage better than the normal way of expression

What started the quest for the number one spot?
1. Enhancing the competitive spirit
2. Better peer group awareness

What is your favorite movie?
1. Ten Commandments
2. Ben Hur
Both are even and both beat them all

Well said, Hank! And I like your movie choices. Now, will you be number one to comment on your own special feature…?

Ninja News

SyFy’s show Faceoff is back!
This season, it’s the all-star version, with past contestants returning and competing in pairs.
Some great creations so far – don’t miss it!

Anyone else see Legion last week? Go to see John Wick 2? Ready for all the great new things coming for the IWSG? Friend of rocking-cool Hank? Watching Faceoff? Picking up new books? And how many movies did you guess? (I think the most anyone got right was five.)

I’m taking a four day weekend for President’s Day weekend, so I’ll be scarce those days and I’m taking Monday off from posting. Next post - March 1, IWSG post day.

Congrats on your site ISWG BEING HONOURED, Much work must go into making it a success. Thanks to all concerned.
I have been a follower of Hank at Rainbow for quite a while and love his poetry. Thanks for featuring a well deserved poet.

Yvonne.

Elizabeth Spann Craig said...

I was thinking at first that Legion must be a new superhero film when I started reading your post...so interesting that they decided to go with TV!

Congratulations to the IWSG and to Hank for the spotlight here. :)

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Alex - I'm glad you're taking a break ... and thanks for all you do for aspiring authors, new sites, books, ideas for films etc ... and congratulations for the IWSG - which I follow but am not a member of ... take care and enjoy that brief holiday - cheers Hilary

kaykuala said...

Thanks Alex! Been quite a break every time Hank gets into the Ninja's domain. One gets educated and informed all at the same time. It is not easy to scour around to get what is on offer that Alex pleases.It also skims through time and space for SF very eloquently. Great! Keep at it!

Hank
PS Congrats! Hank trails your feat at Pat's today!

Truedessa said...

Good Morning Alex,

Nice to see Hank featured, I often see him early in the morning on the number 1 track.

If you have a moment check out my blog if you haven't done so already...

Barbara Fisher said...

High praise indeed for the Legion series premier, I get the feeling you rather enjoyed it. :)
I was already intrigued enough to go and visit Hank at Rainbow, but your Ninja comment cinched it – I will be there as soon as I leave here.
Congratulations on making the list and enjoy your break.

Ann Bennett said...

Congratulations Hank.

Congratulations to IWSG. I visit you regularly for some good reading.

Books look great. Movies meh, I'm more of a chick flick gal than a heart pounding action movie fan.

Sandra Almazan said...

Congrats to those with new releases!

Enjoy your upcoming long weekend, Alex!

Natalie Aguirre said...

Sorry but I don't think I'm going to watch Legion. Congrats on the IWSG award. And have a great four days off. Glad you're giving yourself a break from blogging too.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Thanks, Yvonne!

Hank, you're welcome! And still stunned I slipped in first at Pat's today.

Truedessa, I saw a post this weekend but it was gone by the time I got there - is it back?

Barbara, go visit him!

Shady Del Knight said...

Hi, Alex!

Mrs. S and I had house guests recently, handed them the remote and let them choose the movies we watched during their stay. It was a steady stream of Bruce Willis and Steven Seagal action films, their favorite genre. The neo-noir action thriller Wick 2 is their kind of movie, but I'm not sure I want to see two hours of nonstop executions. The debate goes on as to whether films loaded with extreme violence are harmful or serve a beneficial cathartic purpose.

Have a great week, good buddy!

Karen Walker said...

Wow, that's so cool about ISWG. Look what you did! Give yourself a few pats. And enjoy your time off.

Suzanne Furness said...

Good news on IWSG making that list, congrats. I enjoy poetry, as you say I don't think you always have to understand it completely to admire it and take something away from it. Enjoy your weekend.

Mason Canyon said...

Good to know Legion is worth the watch. I'm not so sure about John Wick 2. Congrats to Hank and everyone with new releases. IWSG is doing wonderful things. Have fun on your four-day weekend.

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

Will make a note of Legion! Been busy so am behind in my TV and movie watching, although I did watch the return of The Walking Dead.

Enjoy your break, Alex!

Christine Rains said...

I hadn't heard of Legion. Now I must check it out! I saw LEGO Batman this weekend, and it was everything you would expect. Thank you so much for the shout-out, and yay for the IWSG! :)

Cathrina Constantine said...

Congrats on the IWSG being recognized! It's a great group for sure!!!

I've been watching the Legion commercials, looks right up my alley. I will be checking it out. We saw the first John Wick movie, and it sounds basically the same. My husband didn't like it, and now he's seeing the commercials for the 2nd one and he says, "That looks good." Hahahaa...

Congrats to all the new releases at their authors!!!!

Pat Hatt said...

haha and you went and beat out poor Hank today at my bay. Hank sure has fun with the #1 run.

Good to know that Legion is great, still have it to be watch. Pretty much what I expected from John Wick 2.

Thanks for the shout.

Never even heard of Soylent Green. Figures I'd miss the first as I have little clue with voices in some.

Patricia Lynne said...

No dogs died in John Wick 2, right?????? I can't watch the beginning of the first for that reason and I'd really like to see this, but I have to be assured No. Dogs. Die.

Also, thanks for giving my new release a shoutout. ^_^

Erika said...

I am adding Legion to my watch list for sure and John Wick...hmmm...I want character and plot, but I do appreciate your review. Yay for the award for IWSG! That's great news! I stink at movie trivia but I did watch Blood Father after your last review and loved it. It was sad when he died but realistic.

Bish Denham said...

I'm curious about Legion and may just have to check it out. As for John Wick 2, I didn't see the first and the second sounds even less appealing. I getting tired of the violence for violence sake in movies/tv shows.

Looking forward to what IWSG has in store for all of us. A most well deserved distinction to be on the 100 list!

Congrats to one and all. I like your new feature Alex, it'll be nice to get to know other bloggers. Hello Hank! *waves*

Sherry Ellis said...

My husband wants to see the John Wick film. It sounds like it's right up his alley. Congratulations on the IWSG group news!

Charles Gramlich said...

My wife and I much enjoyed Legion and will try to catch more

L. Diane Wolfe said...

The IWSG is moving up.

John Wick was a bit numbing.

Birgit said...

I got 5 right and glad I guessed Soylent Green! I will pass on John Wick because the first one still brings up the image of his dead puppy and I can't stomach it even though I know it's fake. I want to watch legion and need to tape it! What channel is it on? I don't get Netflix or HBO. I am loving FaceOFF and glad it started up again. Did you watch the last one about Monster High? I liked the 2 blue ones-hahahaaa Yeti and aqua one. The wolfgirl was horrible. I'm going to do the A to Z but scared about hooking up each day but get the reason why it was tough for all of you.

Arlee Bird said...

I haven't been doing too well with keeping up with many TV shows or new movies. Saw Inferno the other night and thought it was a fairly lame story though some of the visuals were pretty cool.

Great news for IWSG.

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

Congratulations to new authors! That list always seems to include the phenomenal and phenomenally speedy Pat Hatt.
I'm glad you'll be taking a four day weekend, Alex.
Keep taking care of yourself.

Francis Lee said...

Loved the first John Wick even being not a massive Keanu fan, bring on the second!

Botanist said...

That's a great accolade for IWSG, Alex. You should be proud. And I've bookmarked that list for further exploration...

Spacer Guy said...

Legion Series sounds good. John Wick, gore and guts - I guess this is the way of the world. IWSG so winning

Liz A. said...

Legion... I just didn't get it. I didn't hate it, but I had a hard time following it. I have problems with shows/movies where we're not quite sure what's real and what's not. And this suffered from that.

Joanne said...

All hail president's weekend. Enjoy and relax.
Congrats to IWSG world. I enjoy reading posts, etc. Very worthwhile
A guy at work saw John Wicke 2 and said it was a kill fest. I shall pass even though I like Keanu
Pretty weekend here so I was outdoors quite a bit.
Have a super week

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Nothing wrong with a weekend of action films. I did find John Wick to be a bit much though.

Christine, you're welcome.

Cathrina, it is more of the same.

Pat, you're welcome. I know - funny I beat Hank today. And you've never seen Soylent Green? Worth a watch once.

Patricia - no dogs die! And you're welcome.

Erika, it was sad, but a good film.

Bish, more to come!

Birgit, you know your older movies. Legion is on FX. And yes, it was hilarious that the two guys who knew nothing about Monster High won that round.

Liz, there was a lot of that.

Elizabeth Seckman said...

I'll have to DVR Legion. The boys want to see John Wick this weekend. I'll go just to see if he's still mad about the puppy. I know I would be. :)

Andrew Leon said...

I really liked the first Wick, so I'm wanting to see this one in the theater.

I actually watched Legion already! It was impressively good.

M Pax said...

Enjoy your time off!

Been watching The Expanse.

Roland D. Yeomans said...

You need a break -- that is much better than a break-down right? :-) I watched LEGION its first day and have recommended it to every Sci-Fi fan I know. I didn't expect Hamlet from the sequel, having seen the first one! Congratulations for the honor!

mshatch said...

*sigh* I didn't do so well at the Trivia. I saw the first John Wick and it was just too much killing and not enough story. Very very interested in Legion. Very.

A Beer For The Shower said...

I'm very excited to see Legion (I have it DVR'd, just haven't seen it yet) and I'm also excited to shut off my brain and see John Wick. I'll admit that I like my action flicks brutal and violent.

Stephen Hayes said...

I hope you're doing something fun with your time off. Take care.

Chrys Fey said...

John Wick: Chapter 2 is on my list of movies to see.

T. Drecker said...

Congrats, IWSG! But that it's so great is a given. I'm going to have to check Legion out.

L.G. Keltner said...

It's great seeing IWSG get the recognition it deserves!

Hello Hank! Congratulations on being featured here! I love reading poetry. I only wish I were better at writing it than I am.

Beverly Stowe McClure said...

So many good things happening here. Congratulations to all. Way to go.

Sandra Cox said...

I'm not familiar with Legion though I do like most things Marvel:)
Have a great one, Alex.

Shannon Lawrence said...

I'll be seeing John Wick 2 on Wednesday. Are you saying you thought this was more violent than the first and that you liked it less? I don't have FX, so unless it comes on Netflix, I won't be able to watch it. Sounds interesting, though. Congrats to the IWSG!

J E Oneil said...

Legion sounds really good. I'll have to check it out.

Stacy McKitrick said...

Congrats on making the list.
The movie I want to see next is the Batman Lego movie. It looks funny!

Jemi Fraser said...

LOL - last week I thought i had a trivia question correct (VERY rare for me) - and now I see - NOPE :)

Love Face Off - one of my favourite shows!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Joanne, it is a major kill fest.

Elizabeth, now he's mad about his car...

Brandon and Bryan, you will dig John Wick then.

Stephen, fun is in the plans!

Chrys, prepare for a lot of carnage.

Shannon, it was more violent and just a bit too long.

Jemi, that show is awesome!

Cindy said...

Legion sounds interesting. It seems those darker type movies are getting more popular these days.

Carrie-Anne said...

Enjoy your long holiday weekend! And congratulations on the IWSG website being in the Top 100!

I imagine my little brother saw Legion, or is going to see it soon. He's crazy about superheroes, though our parents think he needs to find more "mature" interests at 30 years old. Lots of well-adjusted adults love superhero stories, though they're convinced that's only something for young people.

Cherie Reich said...

That's awesome about the IWSG website!

Heather M. Gardner said...

Alex!

Congrats on making the website list! I now know how hard you guys have been working behind the scenes.

John Wick will be right up my alley. :)

I didn't know Legion was going to be a TV show, I thought it was a movie. Now I'll have to find it. Thanks for the info.

Hi, Hank!

Enjoy your long weekend! It's been so cold here. The sidewalk is a sheet of ice! I put a ton of sand on it and now it looks like the beach!

Heather

H.R. Sinclair, Southpaw said...

Wowzers! Congrats on IWSG making the grade!

I haven't seen Legion. :( I'll need to search it out.

Rhonda Albom said...

Well done on the IWSG award.

Helena said...

I was only able to catch about 10 minutes of Legion but was very impressed with the acting and, cinematography--the works! Sigh. So now there's another excellent series I'll get addicted to.

Weekend-Windup said...

Nice to have a review of the movies..

LuAnn Braley said...

Congrats on the #ISWG listing on the 100 best sites for writers list! That is GREAT!

Lynda R Young said...

Legion sounds great. Haven't seen it yet, but looking forward to it.

Joylene Nowell Butler said...

Congratulations to all the authors and their new releases. Haven't seen Legion yet. I do enjoy action films. Loved the Bourne series and the Mission Impossible etc. Not crazy about the higher death counts. Can feel myself becoming unaffected after awhile. Indifferent. Finally got to see Impossible. Wow, that was quite the movie. Intense. For some strange reason, it reminds me of David.

Sandra Cox said...

Happy Valentines to you and your wife, Alex:) Enjoy the day.

Tamara Narayan said...

My dad sent me a book on the science behind Game of Thrones. I can't wait to read it.

Toinette Thomas said...

Legion sounds awesome; will have to check it out.
I'm going to see John Wick simply because I can, and then I'll complain about it.
I never would have figured out Soylent Green without going to IMDB.
It was nice to meet Hank Kaykuala.
See you in March.

Chemist Ken said...

I'll admit that I hadn't even heard of Legion before this. But it does sound interesting, so I'll have to check it out this week. Thanks for the heads-up.

Patricia Stoltey said...

I was hooked on Legion in the first ten minutes. Can't wait for the next episode.

Juneta Key said...

Great post. Enjoyed the new author feature. Very cool.
Juneta @ Writer's Gambit

Jennifer Lane said...

50 people shot in the head? No thanks.

Have a great long weekend!

Tyrean Martinson said...

Congrats on the honors for IWSG! I'm excited to see what's coming next. This group has become far more than a blog hop. Congratulations on all that you do, Alex!

Fundy Blue said...

You've shepherded the IWSG a long way, Alex! Congratulations! And enjoy that long and well-deserved weekend!

Stephanie Faris said...

I can't wait to read Patricia's book! And I'm so glad you're featuring bloggers we might not have met. I'm always looking for new blogs to read.

Also, congrats to IWSG for making that list. That's awesome!

Denise Covey said...

Enjoy your break, Alex. Thanks for the promos. Looking forward to reading the vampire tale. And congrats to IWSG for making the Best 100 list. Good work! Great site!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Carrie-Anne, you tell them this fifty-something still digs them! Superheroes are for all ages.

Heather, I wouldn't recommend laying out to get a tan. And John Wick is Blood and Carnage. But no Boobs. Bummer.

Helena, so many great shows, so little time...

Joylene, still haven't seen that one. And John Wick will make you numb then.

Tamara, cool!

Toi, that made me chuckle.

Patricia, I can't either!

Jennifer, more like two hundred.

Tyrean, thanks, and it's way beyond my imagination.

Stephanie, I'm going to do my best to do just that.

Jo said...

Sounds like a TV programme I would enjoy. As you know, I don't watch the box all that much.

I think the upward moves of IWSG are wonderful to follow and congratulations to you Alex. Hope it continues to upswing.

Magic Love Crow said...

My mom and brother Love Legion! Maybe I should start watching!

Cherdo said...

I want to like John Wick...but it just doesn't do it for me.

Happy Valentine's Day, buddy!

Pat Tillett said...

First off, congrats on the recognition of the IWSG.

I'm glad to hear that you really liked Legion. I couldn't agree more. It was so good that I watched the premier twice! To me, it was the best premier episode I've ever seen.

Nilanjana Bose said...

Congrats on the recognition for ISWG! from a fan of the anthos and NLs.


Enjoy your break!

The Cynical Sailor said...

That's great news about making the Top 100 list! Looking forward to hearing what the IWSG plans and happenings are. Enjoy your break.

Rachna Chhabria said...

Congratulations Alex for IWSG making it to The Write Life’s 100 Best Websites for Writers for 2017! Proud of IWSG for this feat in such a short time.

Patsy said...

It's great that IWSG is getting some well deserved recognition.

Maria Perry Mohan said...

I've been reading IWSG blogs for years now. I also see the Facebook page sometimes. I must check it out a little more. It's a large group for sure. Some of my writing friends are in there.

Sandra Cox said...

Woo Hoo IWSG. Making the top 100 list is impressive. Thanks to everyone who works so hard for our group.

dolorah said...

I'll have to catch up on Legion tonight. I think even the hubby would like it. I do like my action movies violent, lol. But it can get too much. I can't wait to see John Wick II. I do love the Face Off show. Watching them make up the models is fascinating.

Nice to meet you Hank. And congrats to all the others with book releases.

Have a good weekend Alex. So cool about the IWSG site ratings. We do rock!!

blackandwhitepublishingco. said...

Okay. Now I have to watch Legion. Have a great weekend Alex!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Cherdo, not sure it did it for me.

Pat, agreed!!

Maria, please join us.

Donna, yes we do!

Thanks everyone!

farawayeyes said...

Yay! for IWSG, it is one of the best!!!

Robert Bennett said...

I guess I'm gonna have to go look up John Wick. EVERYONE seems to be talking about the second movie and I never even heard about the first one when it came out.

Sandra Cox said...

Good for you, Alex, for starting a special writer feature!
Nice to meet you, Hank:)

LD Masterson said...

Enjoy the break. I'm seriously behind in my movie watching, although I think John Wick but be a big much for my taste.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Robert, if you like excessive violence, you'll enjoy it.

Sandra, your feature gave me the idea.

mail4rosey said...

I never saw Oblivion. We were in Dublin though when Tom Cruise came to see it. People were climbing up trees just to be able to see him. It was crazy! Thanks for the movie reviews too. I'm not a fan of violent movies, but I do like action.

Julie Flanders said...

I didn't know Legion was from Noah Hawley. I LOVE Fargo. Will have to check that out. Nice to meet Hank!

Karen Lange said...

Congrats to the IWSG making the list! That is exciting. :)

Jennifer Lane said...

PS Congrats for making the top 100 list!

^.^ said...

Hi :) Love, cat.

Kim Lajevardi said...

You sold me on Legion. I'll have to check it out. Enjoy your long weekend, Alex!

Lexa Cain said...

That new Marvel series sounds awesome! We might get it here after a year or so. Crossing my fingers.

I'm always impressed by poets. Yay for Hank!

Congrats to Pat, Christine, and Patricia on their new releases!

The Happy Whisk said...

Enjoy your 4-day weekend.

Libby Heily Author said...

I've heard great things about Legion. I need to break down and put it on my list. :)

DMS said...

I haven't seen any movies lately. We have been getting a lot of snow- but I am hoping to make it to the movies during the long weekend. :) No snow in the forecast!

Enjoy your 4 day weekend!
~Jess

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

I figured the John Wick movie would be like that. Hollywood loves their guns. I intend to watch Legion. Need to do some catching up.

Mason T. Matchak said...

Good to hear that Legion's worth watching - I've grown leery of Fox's work with the X-Men after the last two movies, and I thought a new TV show might just be a cash/rights grab. But if it's good, I've got no problem with that. ^_^

And congrats on making that writing list! More people learning of the awesome that is IWSG is definitely a good thing.

Lidy Wilks said...

Congrats IWSG!
It's my first time hearing about Legion (we got rid of cable and now using Roku). Will try to watch this and another Marvel comic adapted series coming to Netflix next month, Iron Fist.

Heather R. Holden said...

Haven't seen it myself, but I've noticed a lot of people praising Legion lately. Definitely sounds like a show that exceeds expectations!

Donna K. Weaver said...

Is Legion a cable series? Sounds like something hubby would like.

Congrats to Pat!

Sandra Cox said...

Many congrats to Pat, Christine and Patricia:)

Wishing you and your wife a warm, colorful day, Alex.

Leandra Wallace said...

I'm very curious about Legion! And my husband will love all the point blank in John Wick, lol!

J.H. Moncrieff said...

Congrats on the IWSG mention! Well deserved, and I completely agree. You've created an amazing community for all kinds of writers.

Enjoy your holiday!

Deb R.H. said...

Aw, man, I forgot to watch Legion! I'll have to catch up and set it to record tonight. It's very rare we watch anything on time anymore in our house.

I couldn't watch Daredevil because of all the violence, either. Guess I won't be watching John Wick 2. :(

Congratulations, IWSG!

Theresa Milstein said...

Congratulations on the IWSG was listed under Writing Communities for The Write Life’s 100 Best Websites for Writers for 2017!

Nice to meet Hank. I'll check out his book.

Susan Kane said...


We have been curious about Legion, not sure. But I think we can start putting it on automatic record.

John Wick 1 was a heck of a film. Keanu Reeves dry delivery is superb, and after a while, violence is normal. My husband went to see 2, loved it. The idea of a marker is great.

Sandra Cox said...

Enjoy your time away. We'll leave the light on for ya.

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

We tried watching the new Legion series. My wife dropped out after the first 30 minutes of the first episode, and I made it to the end of the second episode. No, I don't think there will be a third for me. For it is so painfully slow in developing a plot, and there are too many flashbacks/forwards for my feeble mind to keep account of.

By the way, can we display the header for WSG on SiteHoundSniffs? I do not remember if I have already asked you about it or not.

Sandra Cox said...

On John Wick: I just don't get why anyone wants brutal and violent.

Hope you're having a great day:)

Michelle Wallace said...

Feels like the IWSG is about to explode! In a positive way, of course...

Elizabeth said...

Legion sounds interesting, although I'm not sure about the adult content...I guess as long as it's not much worse than Daredevil, I love the story and subplots of that show (I just have to turn away from the screen a few times).

Congrats to IWSG on making that list! I'm looking forward to hearing about the new things coming up this year.

I hope you have enjoyed your time off!

Emilyann Girdner said...

Great interview from Hank. And I love Patricia's Abducted Life cover. =-)

http://emilyanngirdner.com/blog/

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Julie, you need to watch it.

Libby, watch it.

Mason, it's dark - they did it right.

Donna, it's on FX.

Deb, you definitely want to avoid John Wick then.

Jerry, so you didn't like it. Thought the third episode was brilliant. And yes, you can display it.

Sandra, it's not for everyone.

Elizabeth, same level of adult content just not as violent.

Sorry everyone, been playing catch up with everything else this week since I was gone!

Murees Dupé said...

Congrats on making the list! That is awesome. Just to show, hard work does pay off. Enjoy your well deserved time off.

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

Thank you so very much for giving permission. You can see your linked header under All, Lirwerary and the United States. If you could say something (preferably good) about SiteHoundSniffs.com here and there, we would greatly appreciate it.

Okay, you talked me into giving Legion a third try. Now, if you ears start burning next, know that your definition of brilliant is quite different than mine. (LOL?)

Elsie Amata said...

Hi Alex!

I love your new Special Writer Feature. What a great way to meet new people we might never have known about. Great idea.

Hubby is going to see John Wick this afternoon. My youngest and I saw Fist Fight last week and we saw Split before that. Next up for us: Get Out.

Looking forward to IWSG next week.

Truedessa said...

Alex I tried to send you an email, but it was returned stating your mailbox is too full.

Mark Noce said...

Cool, thanks for the review on Legion. I wasn't going to watch it, but now I think I am:)

Sandra Cox said...

Hope you and Mrs. Alex have a great weekend.

Tara Tyler R said...

of course IWSG is a top 100 writer site! that was an easy one!
I had to turn off the first John Wick when they killed his puppy. I finished it a couple months later.
Doubt I'd stomach the second. LEGO BATMAN is more my speed - 2 thumbs up!
BTW, my son demonstrated this SIRI response to "Hey 'Puter" and "Hey Computer" - try it, it's hilarious!
