One Cut of the Dead is one of the most heartfelt love letters to modern film I’ve seen in the past 10 years. I can’t say anymore without ruining it, but watch it to at least the halfway point before giving up. I promise, it’s worth it.


 
 
 

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier’s first episode was basically just some “kid playing with action figures” bs, but every episode after gets better and better. By the end, it’s one of the better film/tv things Marvel has put out. Solid stuff.


 
 
 

I made this my lock screen about two years ago, the day I got my phone, and I don’t think I’ll ever change it.


 
 
 
 

I got my copy of Ask Iwata, and I’m looking forward to checking it out later tonight! Should be a pretty cool read!


 
 
 

I finally watched Promare! It didn’t quite reach the same glorious highs as Gurren Lagann, but goddamn did it get surprisingly close in a little over two hours. I had a lot of fun with it!


 
 
 

I was worried that the new Invincible cartoon wasn’t going to be willing to go to the places the comic was, but after the first episode, that is no longer an issue. It ain’t the damn near perfect translation The Boys is, but it’s still solid.


 
 
 

Hwayi: A Monster Boy is free on Amazon Prime right now. It’s from the same director as Save The Green Planet. Took him a decade to follow that classic up, but it does not disappoint. Really good shit.


 
 
 

I finished watching Devs (so freaking good!), and now I’ve got another huge, Alex Garland-shaped hole in my heart. Do y’all have any recommendations for movies or shows that might scratch a similar itch?


 
 
 

After a night of reckless financial decisions on eBay, and a couple months of waiting, I now have all five 1st print variant covers of the 1st issue of Seven to Eternity! Sending them in to CGC for grading once the shipping kit arrives!


 
 
 

I watched Father’s Day at the behest of Voodoome and Tricer, and it did not disappoint. Very wholesome film that the whole family can enjoy.


 
 
 

After watching Psycho Goreman, I decided to start looking into the director’s other movies and started with The Void (2017). It’s way darker and more serious, but still a great time for anyone into 80’s body horror stuff like From Beyond.


 
 
 

Psycho Goreman is preeeeeeeeettttyyyy daaaaaannnnnggggg good. The monster designs are rad as hell, it’s absurdly gory in a fun way, and it’s made me laugh a bunch so far. Definitely recommended.



 
 
 

After rewatching it, I take back everything bad I said about the movie Dredd. It’s cheesy, it’s dumb, and it copies a bunch of stuff from The Raid: Redemption, but it’s still good. Gamemaniac, Marzano, and Vxxy: You were right. I was wrong.

 
 
 

I’m currently rewatching Small Soldiers for the first time since I was a kid, and it surprisingly holds up pretty damn well so far!


 
 
 

This thing is freaking massive! No idea where I’m going to put it, but I’m definitely stoked to play around with it! I’ve got Demon’s Souls & Miles Morales, but do y’all have any recs for other games that are substantially better on PS5?


 
 
 

(Trailer NSFW) Following Pat’s lead... Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning (the 6th and only truly “good” entry in the franchise) is legitimately one of the best action movies I’ve seen since The Raid: Redemption. It’s absurdly brutal.



 
 
 

I couldn’t get an RTX 3070 today, but I did finally manage to snag a PS5 from Gamstop!

 
 
 

I recently started using a vertical mouse, and I have to say, why (outside of higher CPI options) isn’t this already the standard form factor? It feels awkward for the 1st couple hours, but the reduced wrist strain is a game changer.


 
 
 

Do y’all think I should upgrade to an AMD or Intel CPU? I’ve heard mixed things on this. I don’t plan on doing any video editing, but I will be recording music and eventually upgrading my graphics card for games.

 
 
 

There are a number of reasons this doesn’t make any sense (look at my top games), but I think the biggest one is that I didn’t play any first person shooters on PlayStation this year.


 
 
 

Apparently, Mr. Show never got released on Blu Ray, and I ain’t paying for HBO Max, but I did still manage to snag the DVD collection on eBay for $14! Really stoked to rewatch it all for the first time in years!


 
 
 

After diddling it for around 12+ hours, I finally got that PC I bought to boot! After uninstalling/reinstalling it all piece by piece, it turns out the previous owner just installed the RTX 2060 wrong and the pins weren’t lined up.

 
 
 

I’ve got a digital code for the Watchmen HBO series if anyone wants it. First person to comment saying they’re interested gets it! Just got the blu ray, so haven’t seen it yet myself, but Marzano says it’s great!

I like video games, music, comics, and corgis a whole lot. Pretty much everything I do in my free time revolves around these four things...
