A Short Piece on Atlanta

Okay, I know I haven’t wrote for awhile but hear me out here:

I’ve been working on myself lately. 2017 was not the best year for me. I tried my best to make it the best year and I did some pretty cool things. But it was all temporary. And when that temporary high dropped, so did I. That being said, I’ve been working on myself for the majority of 2018 and have been pretty pleased with myself. So as a result, I may start writing here again more often pretty soon starting with this little article, review, opinion, thingy, piece that probably isn’t even a piece quite honestly.

I just really like the FX show Atlanta. It stars one of my favorite artists Childish Gambino aka Donald Glover and really flexes his ability to tell a story with some great writing, decent acting along with some really relatable and hilarious situations. Season 1 was one hell of a trip and I bought it on iTunes to support the man and the crew that brought the show to life.

That being said, reading several post discussion threads on Reddit have opened my eyes to a few different perspectives in regard to the story each episode has tried to tell this season. I binged episodes 1-10 after slacking on episode 3 and have really enjoyed each one for different reasons. I won’t go into super detail about each episode but I’ll throw in maybe a sentence or two that people who have seen the episodes will get and maybe relate to.  I thought this would be a fun thing to write about rather than post on my Facebook where maybe only two people on my entire friend list will understand.

A Short Critique on Thor Ragnarock

Hello everybody. I just got out of the theater from seeing the new Thor movie and wanted to share both my immediate and some what kind of thought out thoughts (this made no sense) on what I just saw.

thor-ragnarok-poster-main

What I just saw was not a bad movie by any stretch of the imagination. The action was solid, the writing was good along with the acting. But while the writing was good, I felt it didn’t fit the characters that were shown on screen. It also didn’t fit some of the situations the story portrayed.  The tone that was also set by the writing also didn’t feel quite right. It felt rather inconsistent especially with the actions and dialogue provided by some of the characters, namely Thor and Hulk along with Loki and the newly introduced Korg.

Spoilers ahead. Do not read any further if you haven’t watched the movie yet.

Walking Dead Season 7 Premiere Review

The Walking Dead is back and with that we finally get the conclusion of the unsatisfying for thousands Season 6 finale. If you guys remember (which I’m sure you all do) Season 6 ended on the cliffhanger of cliffhangers: Who got smashed in the head by Lucille?

Frank Ocean – Endless Review

Last week may have been the best week ever if you were a Frank Ocean fan. We received not one but two albums! In 2 days! It had been 4 years since Channel Orange was released and that was pretty much the last complete piece of work we’ve received from the mysterious Mr. Ocean since then. He teased us with a Tumblr post. But months passed and there was still no word of anything. Many of us had lost hope. Frank even had Adele asking where the hell he was. Thankfully after months of relative radio silence outside of a few Tumblr posts, Frank came out of nowhere with a stream on his website which eventually lead to his Endless Visual album being released on August 19th and the internet lost its collective shit.

New Frank Ocean, get your dicks out!!

Batman The Killing Joke Animated Movie Review

Batman The Killing Joke. One of the most famous or infamous (based on how you feel about the whole thing) Batman comics of all time has been animated into its own movie. The comic which came out back in 1988 was a one shot comic attempting to delve into the insanity and background of the perhaps most famous comic book villain of all time in The Joker. The Joker had been around for more than 4 decades at the time and had never had a story delving into his origin and how he came to be (I think). And that’s the key we gotta think about when it comes to this story.

This. Is. A. Joker. Story.

Suicide Squad = Most Meh Comic Book Movie of 2016

Suicide Squad. DC’s next cinematic universe attempt is here at last and it was okay. After the clusterfuck disaster that was Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, DC needed a good project to restore some faith that was lost for the DC Cinematic Universe. I think they did okay with this entry. They didn’t do as good as I hoped but they didn’t do nearly as bad as the critics made it out to be. When I found out this movie was scoring LESS than BvS, I was getting a little scared. You would have to be really hard pressed to be able to make more of a mess than BvS but SS wasn’t that bad. It was enjoyable at times with decent characters, good action and….that’s pretty much it. I can’t say I was a big fan of the story because I felt like it didn’t fit with the characters that were being used. There will be some minor spoilers that were shown in some of the trailers for the movie so be aware. Let’s get down to it.
