Aretha Franklin Queen of Soul, Rest in Peace

It is with great sorrow I must say that at the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin passed away today of pancreatic cancer as reported by People.  This one of a kind woman was loved by many and rose to stardom at a time when not only women, but people of color in general struggled to have a voice. Aretha Franklin would go on to become the Queen and icon of not only soul but an entire era of musicians that to this day look back at with pride and in awe of what she accomplished. It wasn’t just her music that people loved, with hit songs such as Respect that became a battle cry for the civil rights movement and women’s rights. movement.

Aretha Franklin will be missed my millions, may she rest in peace and the gaming gods bring her glory.

The Package (2018)

download

The Package is a um, interesting movie. The basic idea is ridiculous to even explain. When five friends go on a camping trip and decide to get drunk shit goes bad very fast. See when you have a drunk idiot playing with a butterfly knife while taking a leak bad things happen. Especially when your drunk idiot friends decide to scare you. The med evac gets there pretty fast so Jeremy gets there alive and well. His penis on the other hand, well that got left at the camp site when they accidentally gave the medics the beer instead of the penis.

Yea, that entire movie is a group of 4 friends trying to get Jeremy his dick back. The journey is quite eventful honestly. There are some injuries, a stolen boat, an 11-year-old pervert got slapped ( he deserved it) and even the heinous act of lost cell phones. Seriously tho the movie is weird, but in a fun way.

The movie has some solid acting and a fun premise. It isn’t new but can be exciting at times, if not goofy as hell needlessly. It is definitely worth watching if you like weird and awkward comedies.  Just don’t go into this expecting greatness, the movie is fun but it isn’t life changing or new, simply fun. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you greatness.

The Meg (2018) — Dan the Man’s Movie Reviews

Tell me why people love Shark Week so much again? A massive creature of epic proportions attacks a deep-sea submersible, leaving it disabled and trapping the crew at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. No one knows what’s really down there, nor do they know the best cause of action just yet, but with time […]

American Horror Story: Asylum

ahs 2

So, you know how you get nervous going to the doctors as a kid? Hell, damn right scared even; your heart beats tenfold and you scream in terror when you have to get a shot? Well, old school medical treatment was 1000 times scarier than a shot. So I was really looking forward to jumping into the Asylum for the second American Horror Story .

Our location is BriarCliff, an asylum for the insane during the 1960’s. A reporter, Lana, is investing the estate and finds herself locked within it’ walls by the conflicted and corrupt Sister Jude and her underling Sister Mary Eunice. After Lana’s false incarceration and a new prisoner arrives who claims to have been abducted by aliens, strange things begin happening. Mary Eunice begins changing, patients disappear when a Dr with a dark secret comes in, and Lana falls for a young, handsome therapist at the asylum who has has his own terrible secret that will follow Lana decades after the asylum, the psychotically brutal Bloody Face…

Of the series Asylum is my least favorite, but it’s still a solid season. I liked the new time period and how I look it as a representation of the cruel, gritty age of medicine ending and our more modern age of more ethical treatment taking over. The performances were better this season but I have to give a huge round of applause to Zachary Quinto for a surprising as hell performance that made damn sure I’ll never watch Star trek (reboot)  the same ever again. I loved the plot about Nazi experimentation and the Bloody Face Arc; what hurt the season for me was the alien abduction story. Don’t get me wrong, I found it intersting as hell but it dragged on too long and I felt it held too much weight on the overall narrative while other stories dried up too soon. Also, the ending of that arc made the end too sugary for me. In the end, AHS: Asylum was ambitious and while I find it my least favorite of the series, I think it’s still worth seeing. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

 

Movie Pass Limiting Options.

The-Meg-Eats-MoviePass-Header

Movie Pass, the awesome service that lets you go see a movie once a day for an insanely low price just got a bit less awesome. They are now limiting 2 movie choices a day. Screen Rant has more of the details, but I honestly am not sure how anyone thought this was sustainable as a business model. The idea that millions of people would be able to see a movie everyday for the insanely low price of $10 (rounding) a month is asinine. Tho I suspect that maybe the plan was to get a bunch of people to sign up, then raise the price in hopes most people would stay or that similar to a gym member ship most people simply wouldn’t go. Either way it will be interesting to see how this goes. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
