It appears a recent trend in the young-adult publishing industry is to push forward countless novels that center their plots around tragedy. Jessi Kirby’s “Things We Know by Heart” is an interesting take on this current theme, as it seems to take place after the traumatic incidents that would typically take center stage in other novels.
“Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb” is the end of a beloved trilogy that began in 2006. The film again follows the misadventures of Larry Daley (Ben Stiller), only this time, the tablet that brings everything in the museum to life at night begins to lose its power. This leads Larry to London to find the Egyptian pharaoh (Ben Kingsley) who originally created the tablet. But of course, he can’t accomplish anything on his own. Many familiar faces are there along the way to help him in his journey, including a few fun appearances of characters from the first movie.
