Book Review: 'The Tablet Of Scaptur' by Julia Keller

An enjoyable short read about a mysterious Martian rock that finds its way into the hands of Violet Crowley - daughter of New Earth's founding father, as she visits a museum, and her efforts to decrypt the markings / code inscribed on the rock with the help of the sister of one of her group of friends, who just so happens to be a child genius.

It's a fairly briskly paced short, but one that was engaging and kept me interested in the story and the enjoyable lead characters.

The story did feel like it's a prologue, as the story isn't really resolved at the end, and hints at maybe more to come, and low and behold, it sort of is, as 'The Tablet of Scaptur' introduces the characters and setting for Julia Keller's follow up, 'The Dark Intercept'.

Overall it's a decent read that's also peppered with some YA tropes for good measure.

Available to read for free from the Tor Fiction website.

Movie Review: 'Justice League'

I enjoyed watching the new DC Comics movie, 'Justice League'. It's a lot less grim than 'BvS' but much better, definitely a step in the right direction for the DC movies. It's not flawless (no film really is) but still definitely worth seeing. It's also sprinkled with a bit more welcoming humour as well - Whedon's influence? - with Ezra Miller's The Flash coming across as the comic relief for the most part, along with JasonMomoa's Aquaman.

Some cool action sequences as the big bad, Steppenwolf went about his business, including one action/battle scene near the start of the film, that reminded me a lot of 'The Lord Of The Rings'. It was also good to see more of the Amazonians as they took to the battlefield too.

Wasn't too impressed with the musical score though, not all that memorable (seems to be a standard comic movie trait these days, whether it's DC or Marvel) but it was cool to hear parts of the Danny Elfman 'Batman' and John Williams Superman themes.

I found it a fun ride that felt more like a comic book movie than in previous DC movies, and it was great to see all the heroes just do their thing. But if you're wanting to compare with that other comic cinematic universe, then for me, I'd say it just about edges 'Age Of Ultron'. 

As it's a comic book movie, there's of course two end credits scenes, one for fun and the other a set up for something later.
