Nix and Benny are driven to find a better more free way of life and a plan emerges to seek out a Jet they spotted flying eastward. Nothing like that has ever been seen by the younger generation that survived or were born after First Night. But the journey proves to be full of unexpected obstacles that will keep the reader glued to page. I seriously got absolutely nothing done until I read that last page.

Rise takes us to the beginning. Set in modern day San Francisco, Will a scientist (James Franco) experiments with genetic engineering using Apes as his subjects. The result leads to heightened intelligence in Apes. When things go awry he ends up taking a baby Ape he names Cesar home to raise. The relationship between Cesar and Will is interesting to watch and Will's father played by John Lithgow adds another dimension to the story.
There are times in the beginning of the movie I thought were a little slow and I found myself waiting for the action to start. But when it does, it doesn't stop! What I really loved is seeing the different personalities of the Apes and one Orangutan in particular. Overall I thought this was a well done orgin movie and at the end I smelled sequel. One word of caution I took my 8 year old and he loved it but there were a few times he grabbed my hand and said, "this is a little scary."
Should you see the movie? Sure. Could you wait for the DVD? You could. This isn't an academy award winner by any means but if your a fan of the series I definitely think it's worth seeing.- Jen

First Entertainment weekly helped boost the support for Jennifer Lawrence being cast as Katniss. For most, of us, any doubt that Miss Lawrence could transform into our beloved Katniss, were put to rest as soon as we saw her on the cover. Now, both Hutcherson and Hemsworth are looking to accomplish the same support. The only thing I had a problem with and mind you it's small no punt intended, it's that Hemsworth is almost 10 inches taller than Hutcherson. I guess that's what Photoshop is all about! Other than that I'm digging the looks. Tell us what you think.

Since their parents death and reanimation as "Zoms", Benny has been raised by his half brother Tom, a sword wielding, half-Japanese, Zombie Bounty hunter. When Benny soon sees that getting a job is not as easy as he thought it would be, he has only one option left. Become an apprentice to his half brother. There is nothing cool about Tom in Benny's opinion. He wishes Tom could be more like Charlie Pink-Eye and Motor City Hammer, two Zom Killers who have plenty of cool and harrowing stories to tell each time they return from the Rot and Ruin.
As the story develops Benny comes to see the importance and meaningful thing that Tom has done all these years. The story really is about these two brothers and the evolution of that relationship. The background characters are rich as well. I have to admit I love a good book. Rot and Ruin was especially a good one. I couldn't put it down.
Here's some great news...the sequel Dust and Decay is being released August 30, 2011. This reader cannot wait!!
