Some songs are good, some aren't. I wish I could say that I liked the music choices but I didn't, sorry to say.
I didn't find this score as capativating as some of Hans Zimmer's other scores but it was still a good listen. The most popular track is "Chevaliers de Sangreal" as it's heard on other movie trailers. My favorite track happens to be "Kyrie for the Magdalene" because of its fragile voices. It's a beautiful track really. I enjoy listening to it often because it's such a peaceful choral piece.
Shadow of the Hegemon is a SEQUEL to Ender's Shadow. With that said, it's a continuation of Bean's adventures after Ender defeated the Formics. Which means that there is no Battle School in this book. But that does't mean that it loses it's incredibility because it doesn't. I enjoyed this sequel a lot even though there was a lot of international and geo politics, but that's the fun of it. These children are still children, but they're geniuses dabbling in affairs that should be over their heads and over their control. These children shape the way that the world works all because of their smarts and their power. Adults want them to be commanders of their armies in order to take advantage of other countries. It's really something. If you're expecting something similar to Ender's Shadow, you won't find it, but it still carries the same intrigue, genius conversations, and voices of intellect as the first book. I would recommend this book to others.
This Green Lantern movie was kind of embarrassing for DC. They had a lot going with their other franchises, but I don't think that it quite on to the monumental films of other heroes. I didn't really like Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern and kind of wished that they took my time with the story and just about...everything else.
I picked up this book hoping to get another good fantasy adventure but I was sorely mistaken. In fact, I didn't even finish the book because I was not intrigued by the characters. None of them. And the plot was moving extremely slow (as the first reviewer stated). I also found Caelaena's character a bit confusing and contradicting but maybe I think that because I didn't finish the whole book? Maybe, maybe not. I've read better books, therefore I will say that I would not recommend this book to anyone and I will not be picking up this book back up anytime soon.
