Directed by Christopher Nolan and Starring Christine Bale and Micheal Caine, The Dark Knight Rises is the third film in the modern “Batman” franchise.  Eight years after the death of Harvey Dent, and life long friend Rachael Dawes, Gotham City does it’s best to cope with the loss of a hero.   A broken Bruce Wayne is now isolated and disconnected from a world where he was always in view of the public. Two new villans take the scene in this film, a lovely thief that makes her way in the world by kicking ass and stealing,(Catwoman, played by Ann Hathaway) and a masked protector that seeks nothing but the traditional thing that most superhero villans want; money, power and control over others (Bane,played by Tom Hardy).  As Bane terrorizes the city, a distraught Bruce Wayne aka Batman slowly but surly makes his way back into the limelight trying to protect Gotham and it’s citizens from destruction.

As Bruce Wayne continues to deal with loosing people he loves, the inner struggle he faces grows more intense.
Despite the reconstruction of Wayne manor, the scars that Bruce carry run deep within his spirit and help him to evolve into an even more complex character than we are used to seeing.  Nolan does a wonderful job continuing the telling of “Batman’s” story through the camera lens.  The introduction of the new villans and the directions they are taken  in puts an interesting twist on the overall story.  The action scenes were wonderful as would be expected from a Nolan film.  The all-star cast each played their parts well and made their roles believable and unique to their portrayal.  The special effects were engaging and appropriate for a film of this caliber.  The end has some surprises for sure, and will have the movie goer in tears and in all smiles.  This Blockbuster movie is a must see!! I give The Dark Knight Rises Five stars and hope that a fourth film may surface so that the Batman legacy will continue.

Happy Reading

Well Everybody.. I am back!  Back as a completely new person, with a new role…   My little bundle of joy entered the world on July 5th.  Its been quite an exciting challenge adjusting to motherhood and recouping from the delivery.  This is actually the first time I have sat in front of my laptop in weeks.  I am not really sure how long it has been but to tell you the truth it feels really good to be blogging again.  It feels great just to get my thoughts down and fingers back into the flow of writing.  My book promotion plan has been put on hold until I can get my son on an official schedule.  I know I have mentioned the schedule before but it is harder than I thought it would be.  My time really revolves around him at this point.  As far as my book is concerned I will be sticking to my original plans which includes submitting my press release, promoting through goodreads, twitter , Facebook and all of the other sites that encourage self publishing.  The paperback will be released early fall which will also be the beginning of my book tour launch.  I need to obtain some book reviews.  I will start the process of that as well.

My latest book profile can be found on bookdaily.com under my name LaTaeya Lane or the title of my book Swept into the Darkness.  The profile is still fairly new and I am still in the process of updating and making changes to the profile.  Also my video trailer is up and running live on you tube, so if people want to get the gist of what my book is all about you can click on the video link on my book page or just go directly to YouTube and type my name Lataeya1 or enter the book title Swept into the Darkness.  For the month of July I will also be participating in the Smashwords summer book promotion.  My book Swept into the Darkness: Chronicles of the Celestial Book one will be available for fifty percent off.  Download your copy today.  Stay tuned for coming updates.

I finally got my copy of Charline Harris’ DeadLocked.  I just started so I am very excited to see where the story will go.

Happy Reading and Writing
