Inspiring Poetry   2 comments

Two posts from me on here within the same month. Talk about shocking, isn’t it? *smiles* Anyway, since this blog has been languishing in the hole for a bit, I decided to post a review on some poetry on here that I wrote up on my other blog, A Dark Wolf’s Haunt. So without any further ado…

***

I recently finished reading two books of poetry by author Ophelia-Marie Flowers, and as they were so good, I decided to write up a review on them.

The two books from the author are Sixteen So in Love with You, and Zeal Aspiring. Now I’ve never been a fan of poetry. I rarely read any, and as for writing them, I think there is only one I can say that I ever wrote. When I started reading these books, however, I was immediately captivated by what lay on each page.

There several poems that deal with life’s questions, the pain many of us go through and hide from others, and our struggle to be different from the rest of the world. And in every one, God’s power is always present. Each poem is a heartfelt reminder of God’s goodness and mercy, and reminds us that no matter what, no matter how many times we think we know it all and fail, God is always there to take our hand and pick us up.

Sixteen So in Love with You, and Zeal Aspiring are both uplifting and inspiring. They are books that not only glorify God, but also His unfailing love towards us, His children. Whether or not you’re a fan of poetry, if you’re looking for a word of encouragement, or a simple reminder of God’s love, I highly recommend buying these books by Ophelia-Marie Flowers. You won’t be disappointed.

Man of Steel   2 comments


Well, folks, this is it. At long last we get a new Superman film, Man of Steel, which is set to open in theaters in just five days.
I watched Superman Returns, which was intended to be a partial reboot of the franchise, and while I enjoyed it, the movie was a little boring with the action being next to nil, and Superman getting the stuffing knocked out of him by Lex Luthor and his goons was and remains pretty pathetic.
This film is very different. For one thing, it is much darker than previous versions of the character with definitely more action than I have ever seen in anything with the label of Superman. The trailers did a good job showcasing that, and also highlighting the story of Superman’s character, which is something that has never really been delved into on the big screen. I’ve seen the four films with Christopher Reeve as Superman, and of course the 2006 Superman Returns starring Brandon Routh, and the character’s story was never that interesting, at least for me.
The special effects look awesome, and the premise even more. Man of Steel really promises to be just as good, or even better than Batman Begins. Seriously, with Christopher Nolan involved, you know it’s going to be a masterpiece. In my opinion, Superman is finally getting done right for a change, and I can’t wait to see the new take on one of my favorite characters.
