Armada by Ernest Cline Book Review

Well, that took significantly longer to read than Ernest Cline's beloved debut. Taking place in the present day rather than 2045, this is the story of Zackary Lightman, a teen from Yawnsville, or Beaverton, Oregon. He spends his days trying to avoid getting his reputation expanded at school as a temper fuelled danger, by trying... Continue Reading →

Free Guy (2021) Movie Review

Ryan Reynolds had to grow on me, but he did. And considering the late 2010s seemed to be his big A-list breakthrough, I'm grateful I just reached the age where I became interested in what he generally works with. Reynolds tends to play characters with hilarious aplomb as he survives and laughs his way through... Continue Reading →

Old (2021) Movie Review

M. Night Shyamalan has a reputation for oddball spiritual sci-fi horror, and this movie is plastered with what he's known for.

Ready Player One (2018) Movie Review

That might be a very strange way of putting it, but there have been movies over the years I have at first just enjoyed or really admired but realized over time how much better... Continue Reading →

Tenet (2020) Movie Review

Here's how I put it: The Big Short, an amazing movie but one that takes repeated viewings to understand the way it needs you to, is easier to comprehend than this. Both of these movies require you to be fully awake and ready to nonetheless get lost, something most movies don't aim for in fear... Continue Reading →

1984 by George Orwell Book Review

Pretty much everyone in my earlier family has read this book. My parents and uncle all read it in high school and my grandparents tried it out once. The novel was probably too young at that time to be decided on any curriculum. And in my family, we all have very different tastes in general... Continue Reading →
