The Walking Dead Season 3

All you zombie fans have no fear – The Walking Dead Season 3 is now out on DVD!  I have watched this AMC series since the first season and each season gets bigger and “badder” than the last!!  All your favorites continue on their quest for survival  but this season also brings some unexpected deaths of favorite characters that you either love to hate or just loved.  I believe this is still one of the most thrilling series on television.  Rick and his crew continue to struggle with life and death situations and none of characters are the same people they were in the first season.  The writers continue to evolve their characters with deeper emotions and situations that they have no control over.  Never fear, there are still lots of zombies for the eye to behold and as for me - I can’t wait for October to continue my journey with the characters.

 

Tyler Perry’s Temptation

I try to like Tyler Perry’s movies because for the most part – the family oriented ones always have a good message in them.  But they always seem to fall flat for me and this one was no exception.  The story is of a husband and wife, Judith and Brice, who have been married since high school.  They have created a home and a life for themselves and everything seems to be in place as it should be.  But Judith finds her life restless and their marriage a little stale.  In her office one day walks a good looking billionaire, who flashes his smile and seduces her with all the charm, attention and words she’s needing to hear.  This is the start of the temptation and seduction of a married woman.  Tyler Perry’s movies come across very strong in his convictions but almost to the point of shoving it down your throat and I hate to say that – because they are generally, stories of morality.  The message of the movie shows how adultery can hurt a marriage and the sad facts of a broken home.  But it also has some really cheesy lines and at times falters in the acting and the emotions it wants you to feel.  It wasn’t a bad movie but it was just too much clich├ęd lines and acting that I’ve already seen.
