The Suicide Squad (2021) – Enjoyable Distraction 7/10

2021 is a weird time. COVID. People not going to see the movies in theaters (if even able to find one open with the film you’re interested in). Films are just not being made. Big big blockbusters and their releases just seem to be a thing of the past. I hadn’t seen a new movie in over a year until a friend randomly turned to … Continue reading The Suicide Squad (2021) – Enjoyable Distraction 7/10

The Hitman’s Bodyguard: “When life gives you shit, make Kool-Aid” – 9/10

For all intensive purposes this movie should’ve sucked. It is all the pieces to create another Hollywood flop: overused main actors, generic storyline, slightly lengthy runtime, no particular reason to see this movie over the other far superior cinematic experiences currently available at the box office nearest you AND with the release date at the end of summer which artificially makes all life events seem … Continue reading The Hitman’s Bodyguard: “When life gives you shit, make Kool-Aid” – 9/10

‘Beauty and the Beast’, Magical AF – 9.5/10

Contrary to my last theater film (John Wick 2) I went into this one expecting not to like it. It’s a Disney remake for crying out loud. The original is great and there’s zero reason to mess with it and make a verbatim live action, Emma Watson infused, follow up. (Besides being an blatantly obvious money grab of course!) So I had my doubts as well as zero … Continue reading ‘Beauty and the Beast’, Magical AF – 9.5/10

‘John Wick: Chapter 2’, Action Does Not Replace Laziness – 6/10

I wanted to like this movie. No, I wanted to LOVE this movie. Every male around me who’s seen it raves about it! My father, my classmates, even the random dude I talked to in an Uber last week all say the same thing: “This movie is ‘Merica. From start to finish there’s death and destruction and you’ll absolutely get your money’s worth!” So did I … Continue reading ‘John Wick: Chapter 2’, Action Does Not Replace Laziness – 6/10

‘Logan’, The Wolverine Send Off We Deserved – 9/10

Wow. Can you believe it’s been 17 YEARS since we were first introduced to Hugh Jackman’s rendition of wolverine? I sure can’t. And I’m going to miss that guy! Walking out of the theater opening night, a friend and myself reminisced about our favorite scene from the original 2000 X-men where Logan slices a shotgun in half as the pellets fall to the floor in utter disbelief of the … Continue reading ‘Logan’, The Wolverine Send Off We Deserved – 9/10

2017 Chicago Auto Show

I went back and forth on the idea before finally caving in and attending the 2017 Chicago Auto Show on opening day, Saturday 2.11.17. I haven’t gone in 3 years and unsurprisingly, not much has changed. But maybe that’s a good thing since what I saw both times I really liked. Large crowds that were easily navigable, never waited more than 2-minutes to sit in a car … Continue reading 2017 Chicago Auto Show

Awesome “light” Xbox One games:

I spent the better part of the weekend bored and in front of the TV to my disliking. I attempted to use this time to try several of the games which I’ve amassed through monthly free xbox live games, Slickdeal and random spending sprees. Here are my favorites: Tumblestone: up to 4 players local, select 3 identical colored blocks in a row & repeat until … Continue reading Awesome “light” Xbox One games:

‘Silence’ by Scorsese – 8.5/10

“Two priests travel to Japan in an attempt to locate their mentor and propagate Catholicism.” – IMDB Currently 84% critics, 72% viewers – Rotten Tomatoes I literally knew zero things about this film going into it. I happened across 2x free tickets on Slickdeal, saw Liam Neeson on the cover, something about Japan and a “certified fresh” so I immediately clicked buy. Simply, just wow! Visually the most … Continue reading ‘Silence’ by Scorsese – 8.5/10
