When you think things are finally calming down you get proven wrong again, and again, and again….and again…. then again.

Entertainment

  • Archer: Season 7 – Still hilarious. Really appreciating the levity.
  • Tears of the Sun – Still a great Bruce Willis movie. There are detractors that would argue otherwise but I enjoy this movie and think it goes in a direction that is rare within the actor’s catalog. More drama and emotion and less stuff blowing up, although it still had enough stuff exploding.
  • The Manchurian Candidate – I’ve only seen the entirety of the Denzel Washington version. I’ve seen bits and pieces of the original but not enough to compare the two. I like the newer version but think it has a few flaws in continuity and flow. Good enough to recommend watching given it being on Netflix, if you have it.
  • Tropic Thunder – I really hated this movie upon its release, I mean really hated it. It wasn’t until two friends convinced me to watch it with them that I realized the correct frame of mind to view this movie with. I watched it three times in a row and still laughed. Arguably Ben Stiller’s best movie, arguable with Dodgeball and Something About Mary.
  • Rage – I don’t know why but I like bad Nicolas Cage movies. The worse they are the better they are. I don’t understand.
  • Trailer Park Boys: Season 11 – Yep, more of the boys. I already want to watch it again.

Games

  • Mass Effect: Andromeda – I started an Insanity play-through and I don’t know why. After getting back to EOS, I started a side mission and quit half-way through it. It’s not that I don’t want to finish my play-through because I’ll do that but I think I need a break.
  • Overwatch – Uprising is pretty cool. It’s is a simple but great add on that you can play or not, depending on what you want to do. I love to see Blizzard revealing more and more of the game’s backstory and universe especially in an engaging way.

News

  • Overwatch: Uprising – see above.
  • Uncharted: The Lost Legacy – 10 hours vs. $40? I dunno. We’ll see. As much as I loved Uncharted 4 I never went back to it after one play-through.
  • PlayerUnknown’s Battleground – over one million copies sold of an early access game.. at $30 a pop? What am I missing? I see that if you like survival game it may be interesting but I am not therefore it is not. Even with that I hope it does well and gets a real release and doesn’t become one of these games that is a perpetual alpha.

Closing Arguments

Happy Easter.
