Welcome to Brusimm’s TV and movie news and opinion section. It’s here that we chat about some select entertainment venues and I toss out some movie reviews, TV reviews, and the like.

Breakers Book Review

Breakers needs a special kind of suspense of logic, but overall, the story is a fantastically woven tale of the fall of man and what comes for man once he has fallen.

The opening description of the story reads,

In New York, Walt Lawson is about to lose his girlfriend Vanessa. In Los Angeles, Raymond and Mia James are about to lose their house. Within days, none of it will matter.

When Vanessa dies of the flu, Walt is devastated. But she isn’t the last. The virus quickly kills billions, reducing New York to an open grave and LA to a chaotic wilderness of violence and fires. As Raymond and Mia hole up in an abandoned mansion, where they learn to function without electricity, running water, or neighbors, Walt begins an existential walk to LA, where Vanessa had planned to move when she left him. He expects to die along the way.”

When I picked up Breakers, I did not know what I was in for. It came as a recommendation and I snagged it.

To be honest, the opening sections were written so well that they defined some seriously down and out people and if you think you have it bad, reading about the primary characters will make you feel a ton better about your own situation. To be honest, they depressed me so much, I wasn’t sure if I could carry on.

Breeds, a book review

In a near deserted coastal village, odd things are happening.  Strangers are asking questions about the town’s recluse. A local hunter discovers naked footprints in the snow. The stray dog population has ceased to exist. And with winter’s most powerful weapon bearing down, things are about to become much, much worse.

A werewolf book. Not a romance. Not at all.”

Above is the pitch for the book and I love it. Additionally, in the first page, the author, Keith C. Blackmore, warns you that if you don’t like bad things happening to dogs, go away.

Breeds is a werewolf story that takes place on an isolated island, in an isolated town populated by tough, simple country folk. It starts out innocent enough, as we are introduced to a few characters, but as the story develops along, we are given a fun werewolf tale of survival and secret organizations.

Pokemon Go Evolution List, Alphabetically Listed

August 23, 2016

Since playing Pokemon Go, I started wondering about what Pokemon critters spawn or evolve in what ways. There are lists out there that show the evolution, but the lists show/sort them by critter number. Which for me, makes it a real pain in the ass to find specific critters. With that said, when I wanted […]
