Lockdown Reviews: A Father First, How My Life Became Bigger Than Basketball

During the COVID 19 Lockdown I read the biography A Father First, How My Life Became Bigger Than Basketball by retired NBA star Dwyane Wade.  The book was published in 2012.  It tells the story of Dwyane’s life while focussing on his relationship with his boys.  He is the father of two sons and he also raisedContinue reading “Lockdown Reviews: A Father First, How My Life Became Bigger Than Basketball”

Lockdown Reviews: Showboat The Life of Kobe Bryant

Like much of the United States and possibly the world I am on lockdown because of COVID – 19.  I have two jobs and both have shut down for the last five weeks due to government orders to prevent the spread of the plague.  This has given me a lot of time to catch upContinue reading “Lockdown Reviews: Showboat The Life of Kobe Bryant”

3022: My Review

This movie is not good at all.  It’s a B movie that happened to have well known actors in it.  3022 is unoriginal with a thin plot and cheap looking.  Very little imagination went into the making of this movie.  This is one of those films that you run across and it has big nameContinue reading “3022: My Review”

Terminator, Dark Fate: My Review

I watched Terminator Dark Fate yesterday and it was OK, just OK.  I was a fan of the old Terminator films so I gave this film some grace for being a part of a franchise that I loved long ago.  However, I don’t think it stands alone very well. Linda Hamilton and Arnold Swarzenegger wereContinue reading “Terminator, Dark Fate: My Review”

Harriet: My Review

I watched the film “Harriet” over the weekend. “Harriet” is a dramatized retelling of the life of American hero Harriet Tubman. There was a lot of buzz around this film and a lot of think pieces were written and vlogs were made about this movie. People really over thought this. It was a good movie,Continue reading “Harriet: My Review”

“Parasite”: My Review

I watched the film Parasite over the weekend.  Parasite has received several awards including Oscars for best picture and best director.  The film is highly enjoyable and I recommend that you take the time to watch it.  It is a South Korean film with subtitles.  I know that subtitles are a turn off for aContinue reading ““Parasite”: My Review”

Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez – My Review

I watched the three part documentary Killer Inside:  The Mind of Aaron Hernandez which is about the late New England Patriots tight end and convicted murderer (well kind of) Aaron Hernandez.  Aaron Hernandez is an interesting person to say the least.  His story is almost Shakespearean.  I remember Aaron Hernandez’s football career very well and I’veContinue reading “Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez – My Review”

Child’s Play 2019: A Short Review

I recently watched the 2019 remake of the 1988 film Child’s Play.  I saw the original Child’s Play when I was a teenager.  Just about everything from the 90s is corny so I didn’t have very high expectations for the film.  I didn’t care for the new Child’s Play.  The film was ridiculous then and it’sContinue reading “Child’s Play 2019: A Short Review”

I Tried the Popeye’s Chicken Sandwich and I’m Speechless

I tried the Popeye’s chicken sandwich yesterday and I was floored by how bad it was.  I don’t know what to make of all the hype.  I’m not sure how it all started and I’m not sure how it snowballed into such a frenzy.  I swear I’m not trying to be a rebel.  The Popeye’sContinue reading “I Tried the Popeye’s Chicken Sandwich and I’m Speechless”

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood: My Review

I saw “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” the other day.  I enjoyed it and I think you will as well.  It’s not exactly what I was expecting but the surprise added to the success of the movie.  I was expecting the movie to simply be a biography of Fred Rogers but that wasn’t quiteContinue reading “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood: My Review”
