‘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
