A review of the latest Bond movie, "Spectra"



Having just seen the new Bond movie, Spectra, my first impression is that the writers are running out of ideas. What happened to Ian Fleming’s creative ideas? Spectra was a disappointment and badly put together.

However, I have no criticism of Daniel Craig’s performance as Bond. He did  a superb job. But the actor can only carry the scenes so far!

It seems to me the movie is put together with many sets of scenes, but they don’t flow well as other Bond movies do. The transitions from one scene to another were awkward.

Excellent Merge of Military and Legal Mystery!



Review by Glenda Bixler:

Kaya's move to the murder mystery genre for this novel was a welcome addition for me, since everybody knows a great murder mystery is one of my favorite reads!

And Murder on the Naval Base certainly presents a well-plotted, tough mystery that I didn't even begin to get a handle on until late in the game!

Review by Glenda Bixler of "Murder on the Naval Base"

Check out this amazing collage and review of "Murder on the Naval Base" posted on Bixler blogreview. In an interview with Feathered Quill, I mentioned my inspiration had come partly from the 70's movie "Conduct Unbecoming," which she cleverly incorporated into the collage.

Here is what one of the Amazon viewer wrote about the novel:

Russell Crowe’s "Water Diviner"

I had the opportunity to see "Water Diviner" on my flight from Fort Lauderdale this past weekend. The story is both heart-warming and tragic, and understandably human.

It is the story of an Australian farmer, by the name of O’Conner, who loses his three sons to the Anzac war during WWI.

It is also the story of O’Conner's wife and her obsession with not being able to accept that their sons were the tragic casualties of the war.

Hollywood's Most Successful Stars Meditate daily

               
Creative Meditation, the Inward Way

Hollywood's most successful stars meditate daily. Meditation for actors is a must. Actually, in any line of work, meditation must be practiced everyday. To get into meditating is not just to sit, centered and close your eyes. 

Just like any other trade, one has to learn. Meditation is not a solution to intellectual problems. Meditation is a subject we have to be drawn to. If it is practiced in the correct way, all the mysteries of the unknown will be revealed to us.
