    I Am Not Okay With This: Review

    I Am Not Okay With This: Review

    So, I watched all seven episodes of season one in a single sitting. Mind you, each episode is under 25 minutes, but I think even if they were an hour-long, I still would've knocked it out in one viewing. Now, bear with me because I know nothing about the graphic novel. So my love for this series is solely based on having watched the first season. In a world (Don LaFontaine voice) of remakes and reboots, here we have a fresh take on navigating high school, love, family, and…., superpowers. I know there's nothing "new" about superhero shows and movies. But I found this unlike so many of the others, and in a world with PLENTY of superhero movies and series alike, this one stands out.

    Sonic the Hedgehog

    Sonic the Hedgehog

    As a kid, I spent many a rainy-day playing Sonic on my big blue Sega Game Gear, but other than my childhood Sonic days I really didn't spend much time with the classic video game. So, I wouldn't consider myself a die-hard fan. With that being said, I think we all remember seeing the first trailer for the then-upcoming Sonic film and collectively cringed over the bizarre look of our beloved space hog. Luckily the CGI team heard our cries and retreated to the drawing board to revive Sonic's design. Well done and thank you!! I think without a doubt if they had stayed with their first design, the movie would've been unwatchable. Check out the comparison below.

    The Evolution of Jason Bateman

    The Evolution of Jason Bateman

    He's been there, he's done that. But Jason Bateman's body of work stretches far and wide, and it's only improving. Whether you know him from Little House on the Prairie and Silver Spoons, or Arrested Development and Horrible Bosses, or from his more recent and dramatic work. Chances are, you've seen him in a series or movie. His deadpan humor and insanely well attained "poker face" make him one of my favorite actors. His latest endeavor as one of the directors and starring as Terry Maitland in the new HBO crime/drama/thriller series The Outsider, made me want to re-examine my appreciation for this beloved actor and creator.
