THE LAST OF US, A No-Spoiler Review of the First 3 Episodes

By Susi Jensen | January 31, 2023 |

THE LAST OF US, an HBO Max series is streaming now, but the release of episodes is drip…drip…The third installment arrived on Sunday (1/29/23) and now, like old fashioned tv watching, the audience waits a week, and so on. It’s an interesting choice that some streaming services have made, to hook viewers over a long…

THAT HIDEOUS STRENGTH, A Review with Minor Spoilers

By Susi Jensen | December 13, 2022 |

The third and final science fiction novel written by CS Lewis, THAT HIDEOUS STRENGTH, is touted by some as a fantasy novel. I hesitate to go deeper to explain why that might be, for fear of spoiling, but let’s just say that the story takes place on Earth, not in space, and one of the…

DON’T WORRY DARLING, A Film Review

By Susi Jensen | November 29, 2022 |

DON’T WORRY DARLING is a feature-length film, streamable on HBO after a limited release in theaters. This film, produced and directed by Olivia Wilde, provides a semi-new twist on an old science fiction trope. I won’t say what that trope is in the short review, however it is likely to be sniffed out by the…

By Susi Jensen | November 3, 2022 |

PERELANDRA is the second installment in CS Lewis’ space trilogy. Below is my no-spoiler short review, but the longer review that follows the image of PERELANDRA’s cover, will contain spoilers…beware. This is not a children’s book, but I recommend this novel to all ages who like the story. For all readers, taking the time to…

OUT OF THE SILENT PLANET, A No Spoiler Review

By Susi Jensen | October 18, 2022 |

OUT OF THE SILENT PLANET, by CS Lewis came about as a result of a coin toss between JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis in the 1930s. The understanding between the two men; one side of the coin would mean writing a science fiction novel, the other side would mean writing a time travel novel. The…

By Susi Jensen | August 22, 2022 |

4 Reasons I recommend EVIE/JOE, The Short Review EVIE/JOE is first installment of The Walking Dead’s anthology series: Tales of the Walking Dead.

My son is visiting Wisconsin and after work, we are alternatingly choosing films to watch together.

THE BATMAN, God and Justice. Warning: So Many Spoilers

By Susi Jensen | March 16, 2022 |

Last night I had the privilege of watching Matt Reeve’s THE BATMAN. I enjoyed the film, though it was tough to watch, a tense experience. Graphic violence is implied more than shown, but evil and darkness are palpable in every scene. Not that the film isn’t a beautifully crafted story…it is, but the narrative, the…
