I am not a George Clooney fan and because of that I almost didn’t bother watching this movie but I am a fan of Alexander Siddig so I did watch it and wasn’t disappointed. ~Angel~

MOVIES

flypaper-dvd-cover-95From Wikipedia

Flypaper is a crime screwball comedy film that stars Patrick Dempsey, Ashley Judd, and Matt Ryan and directed by Rob Minkoff.

A obsessive compulsive but brilliant man named Tripp is caught in the middle of two simultaneous robberies at a bank. One crew is more professional and high tech while the other crew consists of two humorously dumb men with explosives who call themselves Peanut Butter and Jelly. The movie’s tone is a screwball mystery farce with all the actors playing their bits just a bit over the top. The interplay between the two gangs is quite humorous with them comparing FBI ratings at one point in the movie.

Television

Longmire

364811

From Wikipedia:

Longmire is a crime drama television series that premiered on June 3, 2012, on A&E.  The series was created by John Coveny and Hunt Baldwin and is based on the “Walt Longmire” series of mystery novels written by best-selling author Craig Johnson.   [I read two of the books and I won’t waste my time reading the rest of them; they are poorly written/difficult to follow and the television series doesn’t really follow the book series anyway. ‘Longmire’ is a fantastic and must-watch series but save your money and don’t buy the books. ~Angel~]

The series follows Walt Longmire, the Sheriff of the fictional Absaroka (pronounced ab-suh-ro-ka) County, Wyoming, as he returns to work following the death of his wife. With the help of his daughter Cady, his new deputy Vic and his best friend Henry, Walt must investigate a series of major crimes in his jurisdiction while preparing to run for re-election against Branch, a young deputy in the department who wants Walt’s job.

BOOKS

Strangers
By Dean Koontz

strangers

From Amazon.com

Six strangers are unaccountably seized by nightmares, attacks of fear, and bouts of uncharacteristic behavior. The six begin to seek each other out as puzzling photographs and messages arrive, indicating that the cause may lie in a forgotten weekend stay at an isolated Nevada motel. Koontz has topped a fine roster of horror and suspense novels with an almost unbearably suspenseful page-turner. His ability to maintain the mystery through several plot twists is impressive, as is his array of believable and sympathetic characters. With its masterful blend of elements of espionage, terror, and even some science fiction, Strangers may be the suspense novel of the year.
