Schitt's Creek
August 26, 2021
Schitt’s Creek is one of the funniest shows I’ve seen in a while. While the show spans 5 seasons some of the best moments are in the first few seasons. The premise is a rich family who lost everything and end up living in a hotel. The comic factor is the change in lifestyle and the small city they end up living in. The chemistry between the characters were spot on. read more

Manifest
August 23, 2021
This shows premise reminds me a lot like the show Lost and it seems to even follow the train wreck that Lost did in quality. The first season of Manifest was pretty good then the second season showed up and the writers didn’t really seem to know what to do with it. The acting isn’t that great either in this show, some of it is very cringe worthy. Not sure if I’ll watch Season 3 yet, it’s currently not available for me. read more

The Dorito Effect: The Surprising New Truth About Food and Flavor
August 21, 2021
This book talks about how flavor in raw products like chickens have been breed out over time as we need to mass produce these products. So, then we create spices to fix this. It’s a very fascinating topic and found it very intriguing. I changed my buying habit a bit after reading this book. I hope society sees this and industries change but as people want cheaper foods flavor tends to go out the window. read more

The Tomorrow War
August 19, 2021
Action was awesome, the basic plot concept was interesting, it was fast paced, tense and very exciting. The effects are cool but at times seems a bit gimmicky. The plot itself had so many holes in it that you could drive a semi thru. So much of it didn’t make sense and it kind of distracted from the movie. I feel like they had a high-level idea of the plot (which was an incredible concept) but didn’t have the resources or the ideas to put it together correctly. read more

Project Hail Mary
August 14, 2021
This book was amazing. I think it’s on par with the Martian which was also written by the same author. It grabs you at the beginning and gives you a nice ride through out. Relationships and lifesaving decisions really keeps you on your toe. He’s really detailed with the physics and how things work which make it very understandable. It’s like you are also getting taught physics as you are reading the book. read more

Luca
August 12, 2021
Pixar hit it out of the park again. This movie reminded me a bit of The Little Mermaid. The storyline kind of follows it a bit but with different twists along the way. This movie is meant for all ages, and everyone will understand it. It has a very good message about being different and changing people’s mind. Totally recommend it and will watch it again. This movie reminds me of the old Pixar if that makes any sense. read more

Mindless (Mountain Man 6)
August 9, 2021
This is another great addition to the Mountain Man series. Like I mention in the previous review. I like the character writing, and the Gus and Collie pair seems to be nailing it. I can see Blackmore ending the story here but then I can also see it continue. Do yourself a favor and start reading the series with book 1 Mountain Man .

A Wrinkle in Time
August 6, 2021
With the cast I thought this movie would be a lot better than it was. It was boring and slow. I didn’t read the book so I’m not sure how it compares but it sure doesn’t make me want to read it. I don’t have anything else to write about it. Don’t waste your time, not worth it.
