Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark

Accompanied by his feisty, independent ex-flame Marion Ravenwood (Karen Allen), the two-fisted archaeologist embarks on a thrilling quest to locate the mystical Ark of the Covenant. Indy must discover the Ark before the Nazis do, and he has to survive poison, traps, snakes and treachery to do so. Always good to have on in the background, but then to forget what you’re actually doing and watch a great movie.

When We First Met

Noah meets Avery at a Halloween party and falls in love but gets friend-zoned. 3 years later she’s engaged to someone else. Noah uses the photo booth time machine several times to return and fix things. Will it work or…? It’s like groundhog day, but with a first date twist. I enjoyed it, as I enjoy most time loop movies, though the main character really didn’t use his loops the way most others do, he was pretty dumb about the whole thing and really only came out with a positive outcome because he just gave up on the idea of...

Dumplin’

Based on a book of the same name, this is a great feel good movie with a confusing cast of characters playing outside of their range (20+ play teens? ok.), but still managed to end with a great sense of purpose.

Stripped To Kill

When Detective Cody Sheehan discovers the body of a stripper from the Rock Bottom dance club, she wants the case. Her partner, Detective Heineman, is equally anxious to make the jump to the prestigious homicide division, but the only way Cody can get the assignment is to go undercover – uncovered – at the club. Roger Corman making a movie about the dark underbelly of the city with dead strippers and 80’s hot cops? The nudity was gratuitous and the choreography was wanting, but the story has heart. Included in Amazon Prime now!

Blue Planet II

David Attenborough returns to the world’s oceans in this sequel to the acclaimed documentary filming rare and unusual creatures of the deep, as well as documenting the problems our oceans face. I really thought I had already watched this, but there were so many portions of it that felt new to me. It’s on Netflix right now in glorious 4k HDR, if you have the ability to watch it that way, I highly suggest it.

Celeste

Brave hundreds of hand-crafted challenges in this super-tight platformer, as you help Madeline survive her journey to the top of Celeste Mountain! Mind bogglingly difficult / frustrating video game that I just don’t have the patience for. After missing a jump for the 20th time, I just gave up on it and uninstalled.

He’s the greatest hero that the Marvel Universe ever forgot: the shining sentinel with the power of a thousand exploding suns. By day, he trudges through a mundane life as Bob Reynolds; at night, he soars across a gleaming, perfect skyline as the Sentry! But how much of his dual existence is real? And what of his dark other self, the Void? As one of the Sentry’s oldest villains, Cranio, returns, the Golden Guardian must go head-to-head with...

Bumblebee

On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee the Autobot finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld), on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken. When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary, yellow VW bug. This is the great Transformers movie that we’ve all been waiting for. It takes everything you loved to hate about the first 5 films and just slides it all into the dustbin, then treats your nostalgia with respect. John Cena is a...

Car Cable Management

I have three things that I wanted to power in my car: a wireless car charger, a dashcam and a rear view dashcam setup in my car. I only have two power outlets in my car, one that’s always on and one that’s ignition switch enabled. I tried running the dashcams off the always on outlet, afterall they have capacitors and only turn the screens on for a brief moment when loading up, how much power can they draw? Turns out, they draw enough to kill my car battery over night, so that plan went out the window and I...
