“Your Place or Mine” Review

Your Place or Mine: Directed by Aline Brosh McKenna. With Reese Witherspoon, Ashton Kutcher, Zoë Chao, Jesse Williams. Two long-distance best friends change each other’s lives when she decides to pursue a lifelong dream and he volunteers to keep an eye on her teenage son. A traditional romantic comedy that has little to offer in the way of surprises or unique elements, but delivers on the promise of two characters being apart both physically and emotionally at the beginning of the story and coming together by the end of the film. It’s sweet and sappy in all the ways you’d...

“Iron Man” Review

Iron Man: Directed by Jon Favreau. With Robert Downey Jr., Terrence Howard, Jeff Bridges, Gwyneth Paltrow. After being held captive in an Afghan cave, billionaire engineer Tony Stark creates a unique weaponized suit of armor to fight evil. Watched it again due to TikTok bandwagoning, it’s still a great film with some great lines and it’s the birth of of something really beautiful. Buy On Amazon!

2023 Year in Review

I did this same thing a year ago, but here we are a full month after I intended to post this review from the prior year.  I enjoy doing this but there’s a heavy emotional load to doing them, so I put it off and this year particularly was difficult to get in the right headspace to make a post about the prior year. Why was that? Let’s take a look! In February of 2023 I had a stupid health scare that incentivized me to loose weight and get on track with doing some fitness stuff that I’ve always sorta intended...

Remnant II on Steam

Remnant II pits survivors of humanity against new deadly creatures and god-like bosses across terrifying worlds. Play solo or co-op with two other friends to explore the depths of the unknown to stop an evil from destroying reality itself. My review of this game is overshadowed by the fact that I did not play the single player version of the game at all, so my opinions are shaded by the fact that I had no clue what was going on for most of the levels, had no motivations for my actions in the game, and was greatly confused by many...

“I.S.S.” Review

I.S.S.: Directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite. With Ariana DeBose, Chris Messina, John Gallagher Jr., Masha Mashkova. Tensions flare in the near future aboard the International Space Station as a conflict breaks out on Earth. Reeling, the U.S. and Russian astronauts receive orders from the ground: take control of the station by any means necessary. If you ever want to show someone what “foreshadowing” is or are in need of some great examples of “Chekhov’s gun”, then buddy have I great news for you, as I think this movie sets up the most dominoes I’ve ever seen in a film in the...

“Superman & Lois Season 3” Review

Superman & Lois: Created by Todd Helbing, Greg Berlanti. With Tyler Hoechlin, Elizabeth Tulloch, Alex Garfin, Erik Valdez. The world’s most famous superhero and comic books’ most famous journalist face the pressures and complexities that come with balancing work, justice, and parenthood in today’s society. In an ongoing effort to catch up on my television watchin’ from my time in school, Season 3 of “Superman & Lois” was a frustrating slog to get through, There’s no fault to be had in any of the performances, Tyler Hoechlin is still a great Superman, Elizabeth Tullock is about a perfect Lois Lane...

“Green Zone” Review

Green Zone: Directed by Paul Greengrass. With Igal Naor, Said Faraj, Faycal Attougui, Aymen Hamdouchi. Discovering covert and faulty intelligence causes a U.S. Army officer to go rogue as he hunts for Weapons of Mass Destruction in an unstable region. Matt Damon plays a good military guy fed up with the bullshit of bad intelligence, bad treatment from his superiors, and given a glimpse of being able to get something done in a war torn country that’s not really open to the idea of “getting things done”. It’s a bit of a wish fulfillment at the end with Damon’s character...
