Not Bad
I stumbled across this old assignment and decided to read it anyway. Nothing magical about the storyline. Most of the characters are under 40, good looking, the new standard I suppose. I was confused as to who was the antogonist. It was also unclear as to who was the protagonist. The writer does his best to clear this up at the end but in this action genre I would have preferred that we learn the true stakes much earlier in the piece. X is the bad guy, the hero, and the vixctim. Jones..." He's the punching bag. Max is the bad guy until King becomes the badder bad guy and max becomes the victim. King, the final bad guy, doesn't ever have a setback (as a badguy) and Jones never has a success as a good guy.

Once Viv comes into the picture Peter disappears. Is he still in a relationship with Sheila once she gets a job at the hospital? The transition from Sheila the volunteer to Sheila... read
  • A review of The Prince Of Miraval

    Pleasant enough, but totally predictable. The moment that Michelle was introduced and we learn that John is headed to the island it is clear that they will be together in the end. This is not a bad thing. It is the formula for a romantic comedy. The problem is this is not a romantic comedy. John really has no challenge or goal other than to learn about his father. He... read
