“Crisis On Infinite Earth”
I hope you’ve seen all five episodes of this crossover! If not, STOP 🚨🚫✋🏾!!!!!!
There’s nothing like sitting down and watching a good movie with some popcorn. Yes, that’s what this was like, watching a movie.
There were a lot of cameos in all five episodes. There were also a lot of Easter eggs thrown in. Some I caught, others I didn’t. This crossover kept you on your toes from the beginning. We have Oliver dying at the end of Supergirl, then dying again later! Man, to see someone die twice while being a hero is though.
Many surprises rang out throughout the five hour crossover. Some we were glad to see, like the Flash from the movies! That made my night there! Other surprises we could have done without, although vital, like Lex Luther. Then all the changes he made to his benefit. Of course, I personally felt some appearances didn’t really add to the crossover. My number one would be Mia, Oliver’s daughter. Sure didn’t do much but run off at the mouth, which took away from some of the scenes she was in. Yes, I know it was grief probably talking.
There were so many things to like, a few to dislike. One thing I hated was that it seemed like they had extra commercials, especially the last two hours. Maybe they should have did minimal commercials throughout.
Overall it was a great crossover. I enjoyed watching it. I’m looking forward to seeing more from Black Lighting and seeing an appearance from Star Girl.
OVERALL RATING: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
“The Masked Singer”
I finally watched this show on Fox. I binged both seasons. I must say I was impressed with show.
A show where already famous people are masked and sing! The singer with the lowest votes is then unmasked. The judges are given clues each week to the identity of the singers.
One of the things I really liked about this show is they didn’t make it easy to guess who they are. Watching two seasons I only guessed three people! The host, Nick Cannon, doesn’t even know who they are. I also like the fact that he can’t officially guess who it is.
It was a great cast of judges and guest judges who were having fun. Nick is a great host, slightly predictable, but good. It’s definitely worth the time to watch. I’m looking forward to season three, which starts after the Superbowl.

Crisis On Infinite Earths
This review will contain spoilers! Stop now if you haven’t watched it!!!
Wow!!! That’s the only way to describe hour three of this crisis! This episode blew me away!! I don’t even know where to begin!
This episode started off like the others, you seeing worlds being destroyed with some cameos on those earths. One the major surprise cameos was Lucifer. I didn’t expect to see him, nor do I recall seeing him on any of the flyers that were floating around. Kudos for that surprise.
In a way I wish Oliver had went back, but I’m glad he didn’t, that would have made the episode too easy and predictable. Now his purpose is another story all together that we’ll have to wait and see. I really like how Diggle and Mia accepted that even though it was heartbreaking.
The death of Flash from Earth 90, the return of Vibe and the introduction of Black Lighting were all key components. The ultimate tear jerker came watching the waverider disappear. I liked seeing them still stand together acknowledging that the others will still defeat the anti monitor. I appreciated how they threw in Superman’s acknowledgement nod to Iris before they disappeared.
The biggest surprise to me had to be Lex Luther changing destiny at the last moment to replace Brandon’s Superman. Can we say double wow for that well played twist!?!?
One big question for me was answered here. We saw the flyers with Vibe, and wanted to know how that was possible. We got that answer with this episode. It was from the Monitor.
Overall this was the best of the three hours so far, even though they were all good. I enjoyed all the plot twist and the cameos in here. Now the only downside is that we have to wait until Jan 14th to catch the last two installments!!!!

Crisis On Infinite Earths PT 2
Again this review will contain some spoilers from part 2 of crisis!!
Part 2 took place during the Batwoman episode. While I’m still on the fence about the series itself, I enjoyed seeing her interact with the other heroes. It really bought her into the Arrowverse this time.
I enjoyed the development of this episode. While it didn’t answer a number questions, it also created many more questions.
I am glad she’s is the bat of the future and not Bruce Wayne. I liked seeing Brandon in blue. However I’m still partial to Earth 38 Superman. Still it good seeing him play the two roles.
Overall it was another good episode filled with our superheroes. The only thing I think could have been better is if we started to see some big questions answered.

Crisis On Infinite Earths PT 1
So, we’ve waited a year for this to be upon us! Guess what?!?!? It’s here!!! This review will contain some spoilers, so if you haven’t seen it, you may want to stop! ✋🚫
I am glad this crossover is finally here. I enjoyed the first hour! Lots of anticipation and excitement. As you know, “Supergirl” was our first our. This episode pretty much answered the question of why. Argo City and Earth 38 were destroyed.
There was plenty of superhero action going on. I liked that we got to see what they were doing at the time the cross m crisis was beginning. I also love the fact they didn’t leave Lois and Mia out, or left them where they were.
It was superhero overload. Not in a bad way. It bought in some excitement. I just hope it doesn’t drown out the key players.
Now I do feel that they created more questions rather than provide answers. I am hoping some of those answers will be provided in the upcoming 4 episodes. I did hate Oliver had to die this early, but I understand. Hopefully there is a work around or something. Who knows. Overall, good and decent start.

Warning: May contain some spoilers.
I finally got the chance to watch “Equalizer 2” on Vudu. I must say I wasn’t that impressed with this one. I had to watch it twice. I thought at first I was just expecting what I saw in the first one. I had to clear my thoughts of the first one, minus the important details that carried over. And watching it a second time, I didn’t change my stance on how I felt about the movie.
The movie started very slow. I understand it had to have some back information, however, it was very slow starting, too much talking for almost the entire first hour. I found some parts of that hour entertaining. You do see the McCall charm as he deals with various people in his everyday life. I do like how they play through his emotions from the time he finds out about his friend until the end.
There wasn’t much action in this one. It seems as if all the action scenes were what we saw in the trailers for the movie. I’d say the climax of the movie hit in the second half.
There wasn’t clarity in the locations. One second you’re in the city. Next someone is asking for the airport, but they don’t show up in Brussels until a few scenes later, after they did something in the city.
I believe they could have made the movie a bit better than they did as far as consistency. The acting itself was good all the around. The story line was decent.

Red Roof Inn
Mt. Pleasant, SC
Last weekend, (Nov. 3rd) we got to our hotel in Mt. Pleasant, SC. This is right outside of Charleston. For this hotel to be this close (10 miles) from the cruise port and other tourism activities, I was surprised at how awful the room was. I have NEVER been in a hotel this bad. I’m wondering what the reviewers where looking at when they rated this hotel.
We got our room, the room was FILTHY. Urine on the bathroom floor, food in the microwave, dirty table and the list goes on. Yes, the night manager moved us. He upgraded us to what was supposed to be a premium room. When we walked in we inspected the room first. Much better, but not all that great, but survivable for ONE night. It’s very obvious they did some spot cleaning. Dirty lamp like someone touched it while eating. Thick dust on the lights over the beds, hair in the towels. Then you look around and wonder “This is a premium room?” The only difference in the room was we had 1 extra pillow on each bed and supposed to have had some snacks and things that we didn’t even have.
Yes, a full refund was issued the following morning, but it shouldn’t have came to that. I’m sure we are not the only ones that arrive late in the evening/night. Who wants to go through all of that after you’ve been on the road?
While the customer service was decent, the cleaniness of the hotel overshadowed everything else. One room, okay, you missed the room. Two rooms, we have a problem. A HUGE problem.

“Loving Montie” by Shani Greene-Dowdell
Hopefully you have read the first three “Breathless” books in the series. If not, you should, you’re missing out. Although this book is about Montie who is Destiny’s ex-husband, all the characters we love or love to hate is back in this one!!! First let me say this, I’m soooo glad Montie found love!!!!! While he wasn’t my favorite person, he wasn’t a bad person. This book dug deep into Montie and showed you he really is. Love really makes people go out their way. For me, Montie went above and beyond to please Destiny. While, personally, I think Destiny asked for WAY too much of Monte.
Shani took us back to “Secrets of a Kept Woman”. Monte’s new love interest, Lissa, comes forward in this book. We also get to see Shayla too. Of course nothing is ever that simple. Justine is in the picture too and continues to wreck havoc for all involved. I was glad Montie was able to push past her issues and the issues with Destiny and move on. He didn’t get weak (at least not yet) and go back to Destiny and all her issues.
Overall this book was an excellent read. A great continuation of the “Breathless” series. For me it was a fast read. Characters were real and showed great emotions. Shani continues to get better. Great job Shani!!

“Red Room” by India Norflet
This book is fire! I enjoyed it from start to finish. The characters came to life which is always important. It wasn’t as predictable as some. I loved that I didn’t know who she would end up. I know who I wanted. I nice fast read. I was done in a couple of hours. Great read! ⭐ ⭐⭐🌟⭐
