Zero Days is merely the latest documentary to take aim at the issue of secrecy in American government slamming both George W. Bush and Barack Obama for their policies not just for implementing offense-oriented cyberwarfare strategies but for threatening to prosecute anyone who talks about them to the media. In one clip Hilary Clinton holds the party line that the U.S. had nothing to do with Stuxnet. But Gibney presents overwhelming evidence to the contrary starting with a detailed analysis of the worm itself. Working with analysts at Symantec Research Labs Zero Days literally sets out to decode the malware with two analysts clearly explaining how the worm operates.httpvariety.com2016filmreviewszero-days-film-review-alex-gibney-1201707597

Logan just isn't your average Marvel movie. If you go expecting a superhero movie you'll probably be disappointed or at least mildly confused. But it's a great film. I might even go far as to say that Logan is the first superhero movie that's also just a good film no caveats

All in all Carve the Mark is an engaging sci-fi story and an impressive successor to Veronica Roths Divergent series. Give it a try and youll find it hard to keep yourself from constantly turning the page.httpswww.hypable.comveronica-roth-carve-the-mark-book-review

The greatest strength of Caraval is the world of the game which feels like a journey into a dark branch of Disneyland where the animatronics have feelings and don't like you very much and the expensive cupcakes may have poison in them. It's a place where I could gladly return in hope of a story with a more satisfying emotional arc to match the splendid trappings.httpwww.npr.org20170129510816965caraval-is-a-dark-circus-where-the-clowns-dont-like-you

A moving debut novel told exceptionally well with the characters locations and emotions all depicted with warmth depth and richness. Glenna Thomson is not simply an author she is a storyteller.httpsausromtoday.com20170206review-glenna-thomsons-blueberry

The Body in the ice.

The Body in the Ice evokes a world of Georgian country villages that revolve around their church and manor house with a dash of smuggling thrown in as this is the Kentish coast. It is richly atmospheric and wonderfully written with just the right proportions of domestic and national politics murder and polite conversation. The ending put me on the edge of my seat there comes a time when manners have to be put to one side. I will most definitely be following this series from now on. Im looking forward to The Body in the Boat very much.httpsforwinternights.wordpress.com20170417the-body-in-the-ice-by-a-j-mackenzie

There is true villainy and true love on these pages. Theres the mystery of adults who have learned too much and the foolishness of children who only want to learn more. A kid reading this book will read it on one level an adult on another and history clearer still. A bright beautiful read.httpblogs.slj.comafuse8production20170622review-of-the-day-beyond-the-bright-sea-by-lauren-wolk
