I just watched Suicide Squad.

In spite of all the gun firing, loud music, and special effects, I found myself bored throughout most of the second half, and I found the final fight so corny and clichéd that I was practically begging for the film to hurry up and end ... and then it dragged on even longer.

My niece said she enjoyed the film, but as for me, I am going to give Suicide Squad a rating of "meh".

Went to see Cars 3 a couple weeks ago. I liked it.
I used to be the new guy that no one talks to, now I'm just the vaguely familiar guy that no one talks to

I also saw the new spiderman. I thought it was great! Great pacing and avoided the common marvel pitfalls like a drab color scheme, forgettable bad guy or pointless stakes. It was also very funny.
When In don't, doubt!

Baby Driver. It was amazing and everything I want in an action movie.

The new Death Note film on Netflix.

Like Ghost in the Shell earlier this year, judging it as a movie just by itself, it was... ok. Compared to the source material however, it was pretty awful.

There were no potato chips. 0/10

I saw Dunkirk a couple of weeks ago.
It made me want to work on DeiMWolf some more.

I just watched the series premiere of The Orville, and it was exactly what I was hoping for. A great love letter to the old Star Trek, with just enough humor to be funny without going into overblown parody territory. There was just the amount it needed. Looks like I'm going to have to not cancel my Hulu subscription when my free month runs out.

The "critics" are panning the show, and I have no idea why. I thought it was a very solid pilot episode, which was always an area Star Trek struggled in. Go back and watch "Encounter at Farpoint." Star Trek pilot seasons always started off rather rocky, until they finally came into their own in later seasons.

Speaking of, Star Trek: Discovery starts in a couple weeks too! We'll see how the first season of that starts out.
