    Thoughts on AVP

    I’ve been trying to coalesce my thoughts on AVP. No… not Alien vs. Predator, but rather Apple Vision Pro. I got the opportunity to get a demo in the Apple Store, so I haven’t had an abundance of use, but a few things became clear over the ~30 minutes.

  • Godzilla Minus One

    Godzilla Minus One

    I got the opportunity to go see Godzilla Minus One back in December and never really had the opportunity to post my thoughts. I was a bit unsure about the subtitling as, admittedly, I’ve become a lazier consume & tend to watch dubbed films more often. Luckily, it was absolutely not an issue. I personally…

  • The Marvels

    The Marvels

    I attended opening night for the Marvels as I usually do with MCU films and I wasn’t sure what to expect. How will the 3 main characters work as an ensemble? How will such an OP character fit with “weaker” characters? How light-hearted will it be? Well, ultimately, I think it worked pretty well. You…

    Dragon Con 2023

    I’m back in Atlanta, GA for Dragon Con 2023. Here’s my photographic journey of whole the Labor Day weekend event. I’ll keep adding photos as the weekend progresses…

    Review: Samsung 28″ ViewFinity UR55 4K IPS Monitor

    Model: LU28R550UQNXZA I have been using a 43″ 4k TV as a monitor for my M1 MacBook Air in clamshell mode for quite some time. However, it has less than great colors as the angles don’t serve it well when viewed in close proximity (like while sitting at a desk). I wanted something that would…

  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

    Following the original The Guardians of the Galaxy movie is not an easy task. That film came out of nowhere to excite so many and showed that Marvel was willing to play with some of the weirder characters from its long history (Iron Man wans’t top iter, but I also wouldn’t refer to him as…

  • South Carolina Comicon

    South Carolina Comicon

    I had planned to attend GalaxyCon Richmond in March 2023, but unfortunately a case of COVID derailed that trip. So, I was looking for alternatives after I got better and stumbled across SC Comicon in Greenville, SC. I tend to look for a few things in a convention:‌ SC Comicon really offered one of those.…

  • Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves

    Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves

    I had been waiting for this to come out for a while now, mostly out of a desire to finally have D&D transcend media (from games/literature to the small/big screen) and release something … good. I watched the reviews build up and was convinced it was only a matter of time before they took a…

  • Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania

    Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania

    Let me just say that I do NOT understand what is going on with the reviews of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Currently (the evening of 2023.02.17), Rotten Tomatoes has this movie sitting at a Tomatometer of 48%. That feels like an incredibly low percentage for a movie that I really enjoyed. That isn’t to…

  • Stranger Things (Seasons 1-4)

    Stranger Things (Seasons 1-4)

    I haven’t subscribed to Netflix for a bit as I feel they are overpriced for the content they offer. However, while I was caught up on Stranger Things, my younger son, Ian, was keen to watch it with me. The first two seasons didn’t particularly concern me as he isn’t easily frightened, but each season…
