I have completed my LEGO Dimensions Collection

It’s been slightly over two years since I bought the game for the X-Box One, and I finished my collection by buying the game for the PS4, which I do not own, just to get the stupidly exclusive Supergirl character. I haven’t played even half the levels I’ve purchased, but boy howdy do they look nice up on a shelf. In a way I’m happy the game is done and over with, the amount I’ve been spending on not playing has really taken a toll on my beer drinking, so maybe I’ll get back to that “hobby”.

Maelstrom (Rifters Trilogy)

An enormous tidal wave on the west coast of North America has just killed thousands. Lenie Clarke, in a black wetsuit, walks out of the ocean onto a Pacific Northwest beach filled with the oppressed and drugged homeless of the Asian world who have gotten only this far in their attempt to reach America. Is she a monster, or a goddess? One thing is for sure: all hell is breaking loose.This dark, fast-paced, hard SF novel returns to the story begun in Starfish: all human life is threatened by a disease (actually a primeval form of life) from the distant...

Inhumans Season One

The never-before-told adventure of the royal family. Before giving my impressions of Inhumans, I’d like to remember back to the first couple seasons of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. It was a tough series to love, with hokey story elements, costumes that should have never seen the light of day and acting that was unfortunate at best. It took it nearly 3 seasons to find itself and still to this day doesn’t fit in with the rest of the MCU as well as it should, with little to no impact on the greater comic book universe it supposedly inhabits. The same can...

Tucker And Dale Vs Evil

Shaun of the Dead meets Texas Chainsaw Massacre in this gory comedy about two southern guys mistaken for hillbilly psychos by a group of college kids. As the misunderstanding grows, so does the body count! Has there been another other movie of this genre? It’s hilarious and dammit I need more misunderstood horror in my life. Alan Tudyk was great as the ass-hole buddy, but Tyler Labine really stole the show with his character who had the most character growth I think I’ve ever seen in a horror film.

He Named Me Malala

This inspiring documentary tells the story of teenager Malala Yousafzai, who survived a Taliban attack in Pakistan to emerge as a global voice for the education rights of children. This was interesting to see, if only for the overt recognition from Malala herself that her own personal views and political standpoints were deeply reflective of her father’s own viewpoints. It’s notable to me only because it’s an obvious deflection that anyone that wants to dismiss her as just a parrot of someone’s else’s political whims. Yes, she’s a politcal activist’s daughter, but it’s clear that her mind is her own...
