Best Buy Online Shopping / Shipping / Customer Support

If there’s a reason that Amazon is eating everyone’s lunch, this is an example: I wanted the Black Widow 4k Steel book, so I order it from Best Buy since it’s an exclusive with them. They then ship a blu ray disk in a plastic bag, which then (of course) gets all dinged the fuck up. Mind you, these steel books are collectors things, so that kind of treatment is unfortunate. The local stores don’t have them, so there’s no way to exchange them, and (of course) the customer support people that you talk to have no ability to just...

Star Wars: Visions

Star Wars: Visions: With Adam Sietz, Chô, Yuuki Shin, Neil Kaplan. Star Wars anthology series that will see some of the world’s best anime creators bring their talent to this beloved universe. A great mini series of nine “what if” stories that are completely disconnected from the Star Wars universe, for better or worse. There’s a lot here for everyone to love, but because these stories are all told so differently and from so many points of view, I doubt anyone’s going to absolutely love all of them the same, I surely didn’t. I’m happy to see the show though,...

Treasure Planet

Treasure Planet: Directed by Ron Clements, John Musker. With Roscoe Lee Browne, Corey Burton, Dane A. Davis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt. A Disney animated version of “Treasure Island”. The only difference is that this movie is set in outer space with alien worlds and other galactic wonders. I had to have seen this before, but have no memory of it at all, and it’s been on the internet zeigheist lately, and it’s on D+, so why not? The whole “pirate ships in space” seems stupid, maybe that’s why I don’t remember it? Turns out that they do have artificial gravity, but they...

I Am Curious (Yellow)

I Am Curious (Yellow): Directed by Vilgot Sjöman. With Lena Nyman, Vilgot Sjöman, Börje Ahlstedt, Peter Lindgren. Told in a quasi-documentary style, this companion piece to Jag är nyfiken – en film i blÃ¥tt (1968) deals with topics such as class society, non-violent resistance, sex, relationships, and tourism to Francoist Spain. Part one of two sorta documentaries that are a fictional story but with real interviews, lots of interesting topics including Politics, sex toys usage, and the mindlessness that truly free expression can cause. It’s pretty well done and interesting to see people over 50 years ago wrestling with some...

Free Guy

Free Guy: Directed by Shawn Levy. With Ryan Reynolds, Jodie Comer, Lil Rel Howery, Joe Keery. A bank teller discovers that he’s actually an NPC inside a brutal, open world video game. It’s finally here: the movie that looked interesting enough to watch, but not die for by going to a theater during a global pandemic! It’s a perfectly fun movie that’s perfectly swell for what it is, which is a slightly better version of Ready Player One, in which this time it’s not Warner Brothers, but instead it’s Fox / Disney that’s throwing all the video game metaphors at...

Black Widow

Black Widow: Directed by Cate Shortland. With Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, Rachel Weisz, David Harbour. Natasha Romanoff confronts the darker parts of her ledger when a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past arises. Bought the steel book because it looked cool and I wanted to have the movie for my MCU collection, but thanks to Best Buy having the monopoly on selling these in the States, my only option was to order it from them on the internet. Sadly, Best Buy kept up to their low standards of mailing and shipped it in a plastic bag with no padding,...

Prisoners of the Ghostland

Prisoners of the Ghostland: Directed by Sion Sono. With Nicolas Cage, Sofia Boutella, Nick Cassavetes, Bill Moseley. A notorious criminal must break an evil curse in order to rescue an abducted girl who has mysteriously disappeared. I love Sofia Boutella, and Nick Cage has been on an absolutely amazing series of weird as heck movies that all have unique or weird things to say or show, so you can imagine how amped I was for “Prisoners of the Ghostland”. Did it hold up to my lofty expectations? Turns out yeah. He’s making interesting movies now days, with some weird stuff...

Elvira: Mistress of the Dark (1988)

Elvira: Mistress of the Dark: Directed by James Signorelli. With Phil Rubenstein, Larry Flash Jenkins, Cassandra Peterson, Damita Jo Freeman. Upon arriving in a small town where she has inherited a rundown mansion, a famous horror hostess battles an evil uncle, and townspeople who want her burned at the stake. I never did watch much of her stuff back when she was really big, in my own defense though this movie came out when I was 8 years old and with the puritanical family I was raised in, it’s no wonder she never really came across my radar. She recently...

Star Trek: Picard: The Dark Veil

A thrilling untold adventure based on the acclaimed Star Trek: Picard TV series! A perfectly fine Star Trek novel, if you’re interested in the background universe of the Federation immediately before the events of the first Star Trek PIcard novel, this book is a tale of what Riker and his crew on board the Titan were up to right before the Romulan sun went nova (a huge unwarranted change from the established continuity of the shows, but what do I know). I do have a couple minor complaints, as the book opens in the middle of court case, which is...

Gravity (2013)

Gravity: Directed by Alfonso Cuarón. With Sandra Bullock, George Clooney, Ed Harris, Orto Ignatiussen. Two astronauts work together to survive after an accident leaves them stranded in space. I originally saw this movie with a group of coworkers that all had won some kind contest, I can’t even remember the details of the situation of the time, but I do remember that I was absolutely blown away by the film, but that I was nearly the only one that had a positive opinion of it. Sure, they get a good bit of the science wrong, specifically how gravity works in...
