If you are interested in running your own site focusing on user generated content, I can help. I am making an offer to just one person (for now at least) that could be mutually beneficial.

The third entry in the Terminator franchise gets an enormous amount of hate, and while I can't go so far as to say it's a great movie, I do think it's underrated overall.

Star Trek: Insurrection is one of the lowest rated Star Trek movies out there. There are a lot of criticisms of it, but are those criticisms fair? The ones I can think of, that I have heard, aren't in my opinion.

Accomplished directors Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola have some thoughts about the Marvel films, AND they have been christened as the definers of cinema and art. Big day!

The Decline of (MY) Movie Theater Experience
By: Rob Lauer - 10/11/2019 2:33 PM empty starempty starempty starempty starempty star
Going to the movie theater use to be an exciting event, something absolutely unmatched by any tradition means; having the choice to watch a movie on the big screen or at home, there was no choice. Sadly (I think), this is no longer the case for me, and this is why.

Are video games too difficult? Should all video games have an 'Easy Mode'? Or should people just 'git gud'? I can't believe this is even a discussion...

My Time At Portia is filled with glitches and an overdose of grinding, but over all it's still a fun 'Life Sim' game in the vein of Stardew Valley.

Marvel's latest film, Avengers: Endgame, is a movie event 11 years and 22 films in the making. I am not a critic, and I will not be spoiling anything (or at least I will try not to), so this cannot be a 'review'. Instead, it will be mostly some general impressions for this milestone event.

The subject of the failures of the Wii U have been beat into the ground. However, there are a handful of aspects that I don't *think* have been given enough (if any) real attention. These are those aspects. (dun dun)

The BumbleBee movie is not a 'perfect' Transformers film, but it IS a massive step in the right direction, and is well worth seeing ASAP.

I know I probably sound like a broken record at this point, but the fact is that I have nothing to work on at the moment. Not only that, but I don't see any change in the future either. This is just some rambling as to why.
