Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey

Directed by Peter Hewitt. With Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter, William Sadler, Joss Ackland. A tyrant from the future creates evil android doubles of Bill and Ted and sends them back to eliminate the originals. An even better film than the first, this was part of a three pack that I purchased from Vudu. What made this even better was death, hell, and heaven. Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.

Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure

Directed by Stephen Herek. With Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter, George Carlin, Terry Camilleri. Two seemingly dumb teens set off on a quest to prepare the ultimate historical presentation with the help of a time machine. Vudu has a three pack for just $35, all in 4k, so I figured why not? The first movie is as positive and optimistic as I remembered, though I had forgotten the misuse of sexual slurs, strange that calling people f*gs used to be perfectly fine in a pg time travel movie.

Wanderers

The highly anticipated paperback edition of the runaway smash thriller of the year. A decadent rock star. A deeply religious radio host. A disgraced scientist. And a teenage girl who may be the world’s last hope. From the mind of Chuck Wendig comes an astonishing tapestry of humanity that Harlan Coben calls “a suspenseful, twisty, satisfying, surprising, thought-provoking epic.” The story is an epic tapestry of humanity, told in a chorus of disparate voices, including Shana, a young girl who wakes up one morning to discover her sister in the grip of a strange malady. She appears to be sleepwalking....

Krakatoa: East of Java

Directed by Bernard L. Kowalski. With Maximilian Schell, Diane Baker, Brian Keith, Barbara Werle. In 1883, ship captain Hanson plans a shipwreck salvage mission in The Dutch East Indies to retrieve a cargo of pearls but an unexpected volcano eruption and a state-ordered transport of convicts upset his plans. With a full, gorgeous orchestra providing the soundtrack, entirely too obvious miniatures, and an incredibly weird beard on the captain, this was a fun ride that had a fun adventure story marred by casual racism. Not by any of the characters that I can remember, but by the musical choices for...

Humans Season 3

With Katherine Parkinson, Gemma Chan, Lucy Carless, Tom Goodman-Hill. In a parallel present where the latest must-have gadget for any busy family is a ‘Synth’ – a highly-developed robotic servant that’s so similar to a real human it’s transforming the way we live. More hot robot on robot action, while I’m interested in what happens next in the story, I feel like I’m at a good ending spot. Just in time for the American version of the show to start!

Krypton Season 2

Created by David S. Goyer, Damian Kindler. With Cameron Cuffe, Georgina Campbell, Shaun Sipos, Ann Ogbomo. The untold story of Superman’s grandfather as he fights for justice on his home planet. I enjoyed the first season and was saddened to hear that it was canceled, especially with how good the first season was and how amazing the first couple episodes were that featured Lobo. The special effect and casual drops of epics theme songs every now and again kept my attention, as well as the great storyline references from the comics. I found it difficult to do what I normally...

Young Justice Season 3

Created by Greg Weisman, Brandon Vietti, Geoff Johns. With Jesse McCartney, Danica McKellar, Nolan North, Khary Payton. Teenage superheroes strive to prove themselves as members of the Justice League. I had a Netflix subscription years ago that I let lapse, right around when this third season came out. I finally got a friends and family plan again and picked it back up, and while this is a perfectly entertaining show, I feel like it’s also perfectly ‘meh’ and was dated when it was released. I’m told that there’s another season coming, so what do I knw. Buy On Amazon!

At this point, we all know that ICE is a horror factory of human torture and societal destruction, here’s a fascinating look from the inside of the sausage factory, and as the saying goes, you never want to know how sausage is made if you want to enjoy sausage again.

PAC-MAN™ CHAMPIONSHIP EDITION 2 on Steam

The much-awaited sequel to PAC-MAN™ CHAMPIONSHIP EDITION! Featuring eye-popping 3D graphics and funky visuals! New modes include Score Attack and an Adventure mode! It’s been a while since I’ve played a console PAC MAN game, I think the one was PAC MAN 256. PM:CE2 is a great game to pick up the franchise again, with some fast paced and engaging gameplay that kept my attention for at least an hour or two at a time. Buy On Amazon!

Yes, God, Yes

Directed by Karen Maine. With Natalia Dyer, Francesca Reale, Alisha Boe, Allison Shrum. After an innocent AOL chat turns racy, a Catholic teenager in the early 00s discovers masturbating and struggles to suppress her new urges in the face of eternal damnation. The synopsis above is much more salacious than what the movie actually ended up being, though I can see where they’re going with it. Natalia Dyer did an excellent job playing a young woman coming to the realization that life isn’t what you’re told it is and that no one really has all the answers. I suggest checking...
