Oh, this was a good movie. I sat in an entirely empty theater, in the dark, and I had to look down at my phone to keep from getting too freaked out.

Black Panther

So, I saw Black Panther on Thursday night, and I've been wrestling over what I want to say about it since then. Mostly over how much I want to dive into the cultural significance of the movie in terms of representation and politics and all of these other things that I don't necessarily feel qualified to speak about.

Planet Earth II

Planet Earth 11 is now on Netflix, and I figured that we could use a nice, wholesome break from all the death, blood, and ghosts that make up the rest of my blog. I mean, look at that adorable creature! It looks so soft. I want to rub its ears.

Silent House

Sometimes, I tell you to watch movies because they're scary. Sometimes, I tell you to not watch movies because they're awful. And sometimes, every so often, I tell you to watch a movie for the sheer technical mastery. This is one of those times.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

I have absolutely no idea how I'm going to review this game. No idea. I'll give it this much, though: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance knows exactly what it is.
