RiffTrax: Live – Space Mutiny, Fallen Kingdom Review, Murder at the Marina, The Disaster Artist Review, and News

RiffTrax Live: Space Mutiny

I didn’t get the photos organized in time for my post last week, but I wanted to give you guys a taste of the experience.

This probably wasn’t the best RiffTrax show, although it had some incredibly funny moments.

MST3K (Mike, Bill, and Kevin) did this movie, and I’ve seen that version at least a dozen times. So while I admire their determination to bring new jokes to the film, repeating very few from the MST3K version, it just didn’t hit all the notes. Because of course, the best jokes were taken. (The moment you see the Valerian women, you think Stevie Nicks, but since MST3K used that, the guys came up with another singer. And yet your mind still screamed Stevie Nicks.)

That said, it’s still the perfect film to riff. Most of the budget was spent acquiring old Battlestar Galactica footage, which they somehow manage to make worse. The vehicles driven on the space ship look like a cross between a bumper car, a golf cart, and a waxing machine. Many sets are reused (and it’s obvious) and some scenes are reused. There is even a scene after a character is murdered where she still appears in place on the bridge. (‘I loved your funeral.’) It embraces all that was cheesy and bad about the 80’s, including early special effects and video games, all while coming out in 1988. Yeah, really.

And of course, I have some pre-show screen shots to show you:
And just so you can see it really was Battlestar Galactica footage...
Next RiffTrax: Live is August 25 - KRULL!

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Review

Beginning a few years after the previous film, Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) and Owen (Chris Pratt) go back to the island to save the dinosaurs before the volcano destroys everything. But all is not as it seems… Dino chaos ensues.
The last film disappointed me. The characters weren’t very likeable and the script had a ton of plot holes and stupid mistakes.
This one was definitely a step up. Even though the basic plotline is similar to The Lost World – (slight spoiler) – a group is gathering the dinosaurs with a nefarious agenda.
The effects and sets are spectacular. Ironically, I recently re-watched Jurassic Park and those dinosaur special effects are on par with today’s work.
The story goes in a really unique direction, especially the ending, and I will give them that. It takes the dinos in a new direction, but also people. (See the film and then really think about the implications.)
The characters are bit more likeable this time around. Big plus there.
If you liked the last one, you’ll like this one. If the last one didn’t quite do it for you, this one is better. It’s a little rehash mixed with some fresh material.

Murder at the Marina by Ellen Jacobson

In 2013 I told my mother that my husband and I had decided to move aboard a sailboat full-time in New Zealand and head off cruising in search of adventure. Like any good mother would, she worried about our safety, but she was supportive of our crazy plan.

Then two movies came out that same year which alarmed her—“All is Lost” and “Captain Phillips.”

All is Lost” (starring Robert Redford) is about a man sailing solo in the Indian Ocean when his boat starts taking on water, eventually forcing him to abandon ship. Although it was critically acclaimed, many in the sailing community panned the movie for being unrealistic in terms of the lack of critical safety equipment on board and the decisions he made. I tried to explain to my mother that the probability of our boat sinking was quite small, but I don't think she believed me.

Captain Phillips” (starring Tom Hanks) was inspired by a true story of a freighter being hijacked by pirates off the coast of Somalia. Once she realized that these weren't Johnny Depp kind of pirates, we were forbidden from sailing in that area.

We ended up having such a great time cruising in New Zealand (and didn't sink our boat or get hijacked by pirates), that we ended up buying another sailboat back in the States. Our adventures and misadventures buying a boat and living aboard full-time inspired my light-hearted, humorous cozy mystery, “Murder at the Marina.” Of course, now my mom is going to worry that we might discover a dead body aboard our boat, like my main character, Mollie McGhie, did.

Murder at the Marina” available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Google Play, and iTunes. Find out more at and follow along on Twitter @Ellen__Jacobson and Facebook @EllenJacobsonAuthor.

The Disaster Artist Review

This is the true story of Tommy Wiseau and how he came to make the horrible film The Room. (Which was riffed brilliantly by RiffTrax: Live.)
From IMDB: When Greg Sestero, an aspiring film actor, meets the weird and mysterious Tommy Wiseau in an acting class, they form a unique friendship and travel to Hollywood to make their dreams come true.
James Franco directs and stars in this film, which also features his brother Dave as Greg. While I admire Franco’s passion for the subject matter – how did this horrible director/actor/writer create a film so bad it would develop a cult following – the one thing it fails to do is give us any more than we already know about Tommy Wiseau. (Other than to confirm he was crazy and a bit of a jerk.)
Both brothers are great in their roles. James nails Tommy and it’s almost eerie.
Some scenes are hard to watch. Could someone really be that delusional?
Where did Tommy get the six million to fund this film? Where is he from? How old is he? No one knows, and this film provides no answers.
Interesting to watch just because I’ve seen RiffTrax rip The Room. But it didn’t do a lot for me. Your experience may vary.

Ninja News

The Contemplative Cat had a really fascinating post:
Lustron Corporation, a division of Chicago Vitreous Enamel Corporation, was founded in 1947 and began to construct 15,000 homes in that year and then 30,000 (according to this info above) in 1948. The houses cost between $8,500 and $9,500.
These houses were unique, to say the least: all steel.
The houses are made of steel, top to bottom. Cabinets, closets, kitchens, doors, walls, door jams, support beams---everything is steel. (Notice the built-ins throughout the house in the YouTube video below.) Houses were pre-fabricated and assembled on site, in two weeks. Steel slates are on the roof. Enameled steel square panels cover the exterior. No repainting, roof repair, termite damage are in these houses.
Check out her post for images and more details.

From JoBlo:
Multiple Star Wars films still in the works!
A few days ago a report came out that Lucasfilm was freezing several upcoming STAR WARS standalone/spinoff movies in carbonite, and that they would be focusing only on the current trilogy, Rian Johnson’s new trilogy and movies from David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. Turns out that may not be entirely correct, as Lucasfilm sources told ABC News they still have “multiple” new STAR WARS movies still in the works.
The news outlet reports the Lucasfilm sources are calling the original report “inaccurate,” and that they indeed have movies outside of the Johnson trilogy and Benioff/Weiss series that are in the works and moving forward. No specific projects are named, but in the past, we have heard about a Boba Fett movie from James Mangold and an Obi-Wan movie by Stephen Daldry.

Also from JoBlo:
SyFy is developing a Nightbreed series.
Almost thirty years ago, Clive Barker wrote and directed NIGHTBREED, a dark fantasy horror film based upon his 1988 novella "Cabal." Unfortunately, Barker had to deal with studio-mandated cuts and misleading marketing and the film would go on to become a commercial and critical failure, but over the years, NIGHTBREED has become a cult hit and Scream Factory even released a director's cut of the film in 2014. Last year, Morgan Creek Entertainment announced that they were looking to exploit a number of films in their catalogue, including NIGHTBREED, and it seems that our next trip to Midian will take place on television as Syfy is developing a series based upon Clive Barker's creation.
I really dug the movie so I’m curious where they will go with the series.

The Kindle edition of Carol Kilgore’s Bluebonnet Ballerina is now available for the pre-order price of 99 cents at Amazon.
This price will be good through the release date – July 9, 2018.
Bluebonnet Ballerina follows Jalapeno Cupcake Wench and is the second book in The Amazing Gracie Trilogy.

And finally, there is a movement to remake The Last Jedi. No, really. Yes, go ahead and laugh. No script and no rights from Disney – sure you’re going to remake it! Get the details at Slate.

Ready for RiffTrax to tackle Krull? Who else saw Fallen Kingdom? Picking up Murder at the Marina? Surprised by those steel homes? Thinks some fans take Star Wars way too serious…?
Remember, Insecure Writer’s Support Group post day is July 3, a Tuesday next week! See you then.


nashvillecats2 said...

Full of interest as usual Alex, I will re-read later today, Loved the review of "Murder At The Marina"

Enjoy your week.


Pat Hatt said...

Some sure take Star Wars waaaaay too seriously indeed. Like they own it or something. Good to know that the sequel is a bit better, the first was meh indeed. Think I'll skip the Disaster Artist. Finding a dead body on a boat wouldn't be the best thing haha Thanks for the shout.

The Cynical Sailor said...

Thanks so much for hosting me and featuring the release of Murder at the Marina on your blog today, Alex! Very much appreciated :-)

Cheers - Ellen

Shady Del Knight said...

Hi, Alex!

I admire Opie's daughter Bryce Dallas Howard and enjoyed the first Jurassic World film. Therefore it's a safe bet that I will like or even love the new Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Thanks for the review!

kaykuala said...

What I like reading your blog about Alex are the many reviews of upcoming releases. And there are many here. It makes one better prepared when viewing the movies later!


Truedessa said...

I haven’t seen Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom yet. It is on my list as I enjoy watching Chris Pratt. If you recommend it, I know it will be worth seeing.

Have you seen Tag yet? I was contemplating that as Jeremy Renner is in it. Hey, sometimes it’s about the actors. Haha...

Have a great week Alex!

Lynda Dietz said...

I'm not sure which of those movies appeals to me the least. I don't know what happened along the way, but I lost my interest in all things Jurassic, even though people for the most part say they're worth watching. I'm still trying to get to the theater to see Ocean's 8!

Congratulations to Ellen on her book release. I've seen samples of her writing and she seems to really have a gift for storytelling.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Pat, you're welcome. And you'd think Star Wars was a religion to some.

Ellen, you're welcome!

Shady, you will enjoy it.

Hank, I try to keep up with movies.

Truedessa, Tag just doesn't look like something I'd enjoy though.

Elizabeth Spann Craig said...

Congratulations to Ellen! Sounds like your mom is looking out for you!

I'd forgotten about Space Mutiny!

Joanne said...

Murder at the Marina sounds very entertaining. Congrats to Ellen.
And of course it's a Monday if Pat Hatt has out a new book. Funny!
Your Riff experience sounds worthwhile and entertaining. Jurassic World - maybe not so much - I've been reading C- reviews...for my $5 I may give it a whirl, but spend no more.
Lots of goodies in this post. Have a great week. I'm on vacation countdown.

Natalie Aguirre said...

Hope Games of Throne really didn't take a cigarette break. Glad you liked the new Jurassic Park movie. Not sure it's for me.

Congrats to everyone on their new releases!

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

Oh, Ellen, your poor Mom! That Captain Phillips movie was terrifying.

Alex, good to hear re Fallen Kingdom. Sounds like just a fun movie to veg out in front of.

Sandra Ulbrich Almazan said...

You saw what Stan, Rex, and Oscar thought of the movie. I agree the characters were more likable this time around.

I definitely don't want a remake of The Last Jedi. As for the other movies, I'm sure I'll learn more at Celebration next year. (Yes, we're going.)

Carol Kilgore said...

Thanks for sharing news about the pre-order sale for BLUEBONNET BALLERINA, Alex. Much appreciated. Love the spoiler alert about The Rock :)

L. Diane Wolfe said...

He snorts Spiderman's ashes - LOL!

cleemckenzie said...

It's going to take another read to remember a quarter of what you've covered here today, Alex. I've got to see the next Jurassic Park. And a hats off to Pat and Ellen on their books. And thanks for those pre-show screen shots with the one-liners! Hawkeye got my laugh.

Mary Kirkland said...

I'm looking forward to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. I've liked all the other movies so far and am waiting to see this one.

Charles Gramlich said...

Loved the spoiler about Dwayne Johnson. LOl.

Chemist Ken said...

I'm ready to see Fallen Kingdom, but for some reason the rest of the family wanted to watch Incredibles 2. I'm sure I'll drag them to Kingdom eventually. I have to fill my dinosaur withdrawal somehow.

Sandra Cox said...

Lots of great info, Alex.
The Contemplative Cat post was fascinating. Lustron really filled a much needed niche, didn't they?

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Joanne, RiffTrax is always worth the money.

Madeline, leave brain at door and enjoy.

Sandra, Bryce's character was much nicer this time around.

Carol, you're welcome!

Lee, that's why you always get to RiffTrax early...

Mary, then you will enjoy it.

Ken, both movies are at least worth a watch.

Sandra, yes, and I'd never even heard about them until her post.

Suzanne Furness said...

We were due to go and see the Jurassic movie last week but unfortunately my husband ended up in hospital having an operation. Thankfully he is on the mend so hopefully will get to see it soon.

Cherie Reich said...

Congrats to Ellen!

I saw Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom on Friday and loved it, especially seeing baby Blue and her progression.

Andrew Leon said...

I haven't seen The Room, and don't plan to, but I really like Franco, so I want to see Disaster Artist. said...

I like Pat Hatt's Old Man. I wonder if he's single. I mean, to set him up with Pat's Profanity Granny.

Have a great week, Alex!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Suzanne, glad he's all right!

Andrew, you might appreciate the movie more than I did.

Robyn, those two would make a pair!

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

I'm going to read about the steel homes. Sounds interesting. I'll probably see the new Jurassic Park movie. Fans really have crazy opinions about movies. Maybe it's always been that way, but now they get to share them on Twitter. Star Wars brings out the worst of them.

J E Oneil said...

Maybe I'll watch Jurassic World when it comes out on streaming or something. I liked the first one well enough, but I honestly didn't find it all that memorable. Still, Jeff Goldblum.

SpacerGuy said...

Steel Houses - interesting. Starships opt for titanium probably because its stronger and harder to melt under higher temp.

Beverly Stowe McClure said...

I am so out of touch. Know nothing about these movies.
I do recognize Robert Redford. He's one of my favorites. Tom Hanks is good too.
Also, Moms will worry. That's what they do.
Have a good week.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Alex - those houses are special ... I went over and had a look through - interesting to know about. I didn't see the Robert Redford one - which sounds far fetched ... but Tom Hanks I did see; and can appreciate why Ellen's mother was worried. Also can quite see why she decided to write some cozy mysteries around the sailing world ... lots of ideas there. Cheers Hilary

Rhonda Albom said...

I am so excited to read Ellen's book. We met when she was here in New Zealand. As for the rest, I think I will see the new Jurassic Park film, but once again, no RiffTrax for me.

Botanist said...

My wife re-watched the previous Jurassic World movie (for the Nth time) so I'm sure she will want to see the new one. Sadly, I got bored with the whole series years ago :(

Krull was a kinda fun movie in its day, definitely ripe for a send-up!

John Wiswell said...

I actually enjoyed Jurassic World, so I'm hungry for the sequel. Especially if it's a step up!

Liz A. said...

I have only read about The Room. I have not seen The Room. Or The Disaster Artist. But there are people that delusional in the world. As we well know right now...

Murder at the Marina looks like it might be a fun book.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Susan, yes it does.

Spacer Guy, good point.

Rhonda, that's awesome you met her!

Ian, Krull is ready!

John, big set-up.

Liz, don't watch The Room without RiffTrax - you'll regret it.

Tyrean Martinson said...

Awesomely packed post, full of lots of entertainment options and great comments!
My mom wants to go see Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom for her 77th birthday, but she's making us wait extra days because her birthday isn't until Wednesday this week, and she wants to go on a $6.50 Tuesday night (frugal theater night in our town) but of course can't go on the Tuesday before she turns 77. :) I love my mom. And, I'm glad she's the kind of 77-year-old who likes action flicks with dinosaurs.

J.H. Moncrieff said...

Star Wars: YES. It's probably easy for me to say, as I'm not a fan, but my friend wrote a couple books in their world and people went nuts just because he created a gay character. It was ridiculous.

And what's happened recently to that poor actress on Twitter is horrifying.

Can't wait for Murder at the Marina! Congrats again to Ellen.

Btw, really enjoyed Incredibles 2. It was fun.

Fundy Blue said...

Hi, Alex! I wasn't crazy about the last Jurassic World film for the reasons you stated. But I still plan to see this one. I can't resisted the dinosaurs. I don't know if anything will top the wonder of that first film and its incredible dinosaurs. Congrats to Pat and Ellen on their books!

Helena said...

I'll check out Murder at the Marina, and I hope Ellen's Mom does not find a body on the boat.

I'm really sorry I missed RiffTrax's Space Mutiny. I'd never heard of that flick and had to look it up. Good Lord, what crapola! WHY are there producers out there making such painfully bad movies?

Stacy McKitrick said...

So many movies coming out (or out) that I want to see and I just don't know when I'll ever get time. Guess I'll just have to wait until they're on DVD. Heck, it would probably be cheaper to buy (or better yet, get them as presents) and watch at home anyway. Good thing I'm patient.

Patricia Stoltey said...

I've loved all of the Jurassic movies so am looking forward to seeing the new one too. I think they're fun scary instead of terrifying scary.

Tonja Drecker said...

Ugh- July 3rd is already next week! Congrats to Ellen (loved the book). RiffTrax is amazing...Battlestar Galactica was a favorite when I was a kid but I can imagine how cheesy it would be now and with their help. Guess we're hitting the movies this week to see the dinosaurs :)

The Cynical Sailor said...

Thanks to everyone for their lovely comments and congrats on the release of Murder at the Marina and a special thanks for Alex for hosting me!

Rhonda - It seems like so long ago that we met up. I can't believe I've been back in the States for so long. I sill miss NZ. Hope you enjoy the book :-)

Lynda - Thanks so much for your comment about me having a gift for storytelling. That was so sweet. :-)

Thanks - Ellen

Anonymous said...

I watched the original Jurassic Park the other day too. I agree, it still holds up very well.

Juneta key said...

I am looking forward to seeing the new Jurassic World.

Mark said...

Lol, nice:) Also like the Jurassic World review. I do agree that the first film really still stands up well.

XmasDolly said...

WOW.... I read your Post as if you were in a hurry & talking really fast! hahaha I don't know why it's just the way I felt so I tried reading fast... NOT! That never works with me bwahahahahahahaha~~~ I really want to go see the Jurrasic Park one. I have all three films.. the first one is my favorite. Great info here my friend. Now, we had a Freebie yesterday. I thought you were going to join us! :( Anyway, next Monday is a theme so WAIT.. HERE'S THE MONTH OF JULY... 7/02: Patriotic Songs (re: the 4th), 9th: FREEBIE, 7/16: Songs with NUMBERS in title 7/23: FREEBIE; 7/30 Post "2" songs in sign language & Post same without! How's that my friend! So whenever you feel like it or have the time... LET'S ROCK! Have a great day & a safe fun FOURTH!

Sandra Cox said...

Toes crossed the Star Wars films are good ones.
Hope your day was productive and your evening pleasant, Alex.

Roland Clarke said...

As a mystery reader - and an Ellen fan - I had to pre-order Murder at the Marina so it's now on my reading list...can't wait for it to sneak atop the pile.

JeriWB said...

I've not seen the Disaster Artist, but I did watch The Room at a friend's home theatre. It's a great example of all the types of writing mistakes an amateur would tend to make. And wow, that such a cringe-worthy, yet campy, movie ever got made.

Loni Townsend said...

Lots of stuff going on! Great screen caps. Super grats to Ellen, and best of luck convincing her mother not to worry. :)

Sandra Cox said...

Those pre-show screen shots are a hoot. I always enjoy them:)
YOU have a great day:)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Tyrean, that made me chuckle.

JH, glad you enjoyed it.

Helena, this was the lowest form of a cash grab ever.

Stacy, present are always good!

Ellen, you got a good response!

Patricia, really amazing, isn't it?

Marie, I can join you on July 9!

Sandra, I actually wrote some last night!

Jeri, only because he paid for it.

Jo said...

Like the sound of Murder at the Marina having lived on a boat for quite a few years.

Not sure I want to see any Jurassic stuff again, the first one gave me the willies.

Magic Love Crow said...

Alot of great information Alex! Thank you! I don't know if I want to see Jurassic World? That is a fascinating post at The Contemplative Cat! Thanks for everything Alex! said...

I definitely think Star Wars fans take the movies too seriously, but that's why they are still being made all these years later. So ...

Erika Beebe said...

I admit, I am a huge star wars fan. As a kid, the idea of hope and the force and doing the right thing to protect others seemed like the most amazing thing. People who love it do take it seriously for whatever reason, but it's been around so long and is reaching such a huge target market in age groups I think the fans have a right to be serious. I can't wait to see the new Jurassic movie! And I do have Ellen's book and am reading it and can't wait to post a review soon :) Have a great rest of your day Alex.

Sheena-kay Graham said...

Those steel houses sound interesting but how well insulated ate they against heat and cold? Congrats Ellen on your book and Mom's will worry no matter what. Glad you liked Jurassic World 2, Alex. I loved the first one so definitely looking forward to this sequel.

Michael Offutt, Phantom Reader said...

I agree that the dinosaur effects in Jurassic Park are on par with what they are doing 25 years later. And regarding the riff-trax event, a "Minions" movie taking place in the shimmer area of Annihilation blows my mind. I think they'd have too much fun with that.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Kim, they do!

Sheena-kay, since they are steel let's hope well insulated. Or it would be like living in a tin can.

Michael, the shimmer would be in trouble...

Sandra Cox said...

Enjoyed Ellen's post on Murder at the Marina.

Have a great one, Alex.

Joylene Nowell Butler said...

Very exciting news about Ellen's new book. She's a fabulous writer and story-teller. Thanks for the reviews, Alex, and all the book reveals. Happy Summer.

Anonymous said...

I haven't seen Disaster Artist but now I want to. I like the Franco brothers. Not sure why, but I do.

I love the pre-show screen shots from RiffTrax. They are so funny. The one about The Rock is so spot on and the one about GOT I think may be true!


mail4rosey said...

We saw Jurassic last night on a whim. I like the two main characters. It wasn't bad. A little gross at parts, but that's to be expected. ;)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Joylene, good to hear from you!

Elsie, you'd enjoy the film then. And that's why I get to the show early - the pre-show screen shots.

Rosey, it did have some gory parts.

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

I was a huge Michael Crichton fan, and could hardly wait to see "Jurassic Park" when it came out. I loved it, except for one thing, which really bugged me. The movie added a romantic angle to the movie, which was nothing but an annoying and needless distraction from the main story. Still, I enjoyed it, and much more so than the Jurassic movies made since Crichton died. But... I'm sure I'll see the new movie. Especially since you gave it a thumbs up.

Ellen's book is terrific. It's awesome that you support so many writers by giving their new books a shout-out. :)

Julie Flanders said...

Glad to read this Jurassic movie was a step up from the last one. I'm looking forward to it. Although none of them will ever come close to the first for me. Sometimes I think I could just watch that over again instead of seeing new ones and be just as entertained.
Loved the spoiler cards about GoT and The Rock! :D

M Pax said...

I really liked Fallen Kingdom, but I'm a huge dino fan. The people don't matter to me in the movies. Although, the first had good people characters despite T-Rex stealing the show.

Murees Dupè said...

I'm a sucker for dinosaurs. So, I really want to see the new Jurassic World. Congrats to everyone with new releases.

I hope you are well. Thank you for all your support, Alex.

Nilanjana Bose said...

I really want to see the new Jurassic World - liked the original one. Murder at the Marina sounds so intriguing, I do love a whodunnit.

Lots been happening while I was away, glad to be able to catch up finally.

Have a lovely weekend!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Susan, so many have helped me.
I didn't mind the romantic angle. Been cool if the first movie included more with the compies.

Julie, I would be just as entertained.

Murees, thanks for yours.

Toi Thomas said...

Glad to hear that the new Jurassic World is better than the last one.

Not sure if The Disaster Artist is one I'll check out, but the Riff of The Room sounds interesting.

Sometimes fans are the worst, but they do spend money to support the projects they so constantly complain about. Star Wars fans are the worst fans out there, but they're not all bad.

Carrie-Anne said...

It's one thing to be a committed fan of someone or something, but a lot of fans take it way too far!

I'd be very interested to visit one of those steel homes. I love unusual and unique houses and buildings.

Leslie S. Rose said...

Dinosaur chaos...count me in! Just got back from Ireland and saw many Game of Thrones sites - and YES YES YES there was filming. My lips are sealed.

Sherry Ellis said...

Happy to hear that Jurassic World was a little better this time. Maybe I'll see it.

Sandra Cox said...

Every time I see a Jurassic Park film I wonder who or what has been cloned that we don't know about.

J Lenni Dorner said...

Good post. I shared your image of The Rock spoiler alert. Hilarious!
Jurassic World was decent. Certainly seemed like it exists so they could make another movie, one with dinos everywhere... like the Flintstones.

Patsy said...

'The next book' is definitely one of my goals.

Chrys Fey said...

I remember reading once that you said you weren't sure if you'd be writing more books or not, so it's nice that you are back at it.
