SkyFire: Disaster #MovieReview

I love disaster movies. I love the logic-defying action and the cheesy scenes. Skyfire has tons of great pyroclastic scenes. It was really well done with the special effects. The story is good too. It injected enough character and plot to make you care about what happens. Not every action-filled movie has that. When they don’t, they can be quite boring.

The main character loses her mother in a volcanic eruption when a young girl. This tragedy colors her life and her father’s. The main disaster takes place at the same volcano. An amusement park is built on the volcano. This part reminded me of Jurrasic Park. What could possibly go wrong? Well, lots and lots.

There were a few times when I thought the movie was over, but it wasn’t. Unlike some science fiction movies that don’t spend any time on the ending, this one had a very thorough ending. I didn’t mind, as the fireworks and spewing lava were a lot of fun. There was some cheese, too. Can’t have a disaster movie without cheese. Just wouldn’t be right.

I give this movie the beer is optional rating. I really liked it. It was fun and fiery and had lots of volcano danger.  Currently streaming on Hulu.

#MPaxDimension Report: The Afterworlds, cats, gardening, and astronomy #scifi

 

Four months down in 2022. We had more snow in April than we did all winter.

Despite the schizophrenic weather, the garden is coming to life. I experimented with winter sowing and many of the seeds are sprouting. Some are not, but I’m trying to be patient. Patience is not my strong suit, however.

Our cat, Sarge, really wanted a playmate. So, Luna joined our family a week ago. I did not name her, despite the name being a good fit for me. She’s an older cat, but so is Sarge. She’s still hissing at him, though.

We started going into the office one day a week. This is a new job for me, so it was like the first day. I prefer working at home, but it was nice to meet some of my coworkers in person.

Pine Mountain Observatory will be opening for two weeks a month this summer. I plan on volunteering at least once. I need a stargazing fix. The orientation is in mid-May. It will be nice to see people I’ve volunteered with for years again.

The Afterworlds, Backworlds Book 9, is now 62,000 words. I’m happy with the progress and should be moving into the editing phase by end of August. Maybe sooner.

I’m also helping to organize an anthology. There are still open slots if you’d like a publishing credit. The theme is spring and fantasy. If you’re interested in some exposure with other published authors, let me know. You can email me at mpax at mpaxauthor dot com

My brain is percolating future stories. But first, I’m going to finish all the series I’ve started. Afterworlds is the last book in the Backworlds series (for now). Then in order, I will complete Rifters, Space Squad 51, and Hetty Locklear.

I have other plans for ramping up my author life and business, so be sure to stay tuned!
