    Autonomous Vehicles / Cars

    This past year, I have seen a dramatic increase in the development of autonomous cars. A number of companies (from Toyota to Mercedes Benz to GM to Google and more) are developing cars that can drive by themselves (to some degree). From our perspective (ForCarol.com): Maybe this is the way we can save teens from […]

    “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” Movie Review

     (WAY better than the book) – – Where the book failed miserably, the movie succeeds beyond my wildest dreams. To think I almost did not want to go see it….what a mistake that would have been.  “Catching Fire” is a terrific movie providing the visuals and intensity that are almost completely lacking in the book. […]

    “Red 2” Movie Review

    (GREAT Movie) — — Most of the original cast is back for another rousing edition of Retired Extremely Dangerous ex-CIA killers. Red 2 is funny and thrilling….a perfect summer getaway movie. Frank (Bruce Willis) and his over eager girlfriend Sarah (Mary-Louise Parker) have settled into retirement. Frank is a Costco fanboy and is taking care […]

    “Fast & Furious 6” Movie Review

    (Fast Furious Fun) – – Vin Diesel (as Dominic Toretto) personifies cool.  Paul Walker (as Brian O’Conner) is a changed man.  Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (as Hobbs) is ripped and pumped.  Michelle Rodriguez  (as Letty) and Gina Carano (as Riley) are tough as nails. The rest of the cast fills in the gaps, making “Fast & […]

    “The Great Gatsby” Movie Reivew

    (Glitzy, Extravagant, Dreamlike) – – 3D sucks.  It is DISTRACTING, ANNOYING and adds NOTHING  to the telling of the story other than making more money for greedy movie makers.  Beyond that it makes the movie jerky (it seems to lower the frame rate) and the glasses on top of my glasses is ridiculous and uncomfortable.  NEW […]

    “Iron Man 3” Movie Review

    (I am Iron Man) – – The Mandarin (played by the remarkable Ben Kingsley) is a terrorist.  He uses genetically altered humans as explosive weapons (bombs) and is threatening millions, including the President of the United States. Happy Hogan (Tony Stark’s loyal bodyguard, played by Jon Favreau) is a victim of one Mandarin-planned bombing.  A […]

    “Olympus Has Fallen” Movie Review

    (Blood, Bullets, Bravery) – – Caveat:  I read Thrillers and I write book reviews on those Thrillers.  This movie is dead on in my genre….a thrilling thriller that looks an awful lot like Vince Flynn’s “Transfer of Power” book.  But it is not…according to Vince himself.  FYI…I read “Transfer of Power” before I started my […]
