Click here to see the trailer for Stephen Spielberg's Ready Player One, currently scheduled to debut March 30th. Look for the DeLorean. (Hint-it's moving quickly and is black and you're more likely to find it if you watch one of the explanatory videos that elaborates on the trailer.) If you want to, stay on the YouTube page and see lots more about Ready Player One. After all, it's a movie about the native online generation.

History Channel Movie of Isaac's Storm

The Round Rock Public Library showed the TV documentary version of Isaac's Storm on Tuesday, January 19th, from 7:00 to 9:00 PM. Troy Kimmel, local TV meteorologist, gave a talk about weather events and safety.

This was a wonderful event, complete with refreshments! A full room of approximately 60 people attended. The movie is from the History Channel and is excellent. It uses actual photos. They are still photos, but they are intertwined with video simulations to create a spellbinding movie about Isaac's Storm.

You can see the movie on YouTube. I thought I saw a full-length video of it available on YouTube, but now all I see are sections. So, you might have to watch it in sections. It's good, though!

There is a review of the TV documentary at IMDB: Click Here
