Haier Chromebook: Specifications and Its Usefulness On the Road

This article will dive a little deeper into its specs and how well it performs while on the road. In future articles I’ll cover the differences and similarities between a Chromebook and it’s competitors, the positives and negatives of having a Chromebook as well as how I use it in my everyday routine. So, … Read more

Jurassic World Review

It’s been fourteen years since the last Jurassic Park movie came out and twenty since the original. While the original Jurassic Park will always be a classic and revolutionary in so many ways, The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park III definitely left a bad taste in my mouth, as well as the majority of the Jurassic Park fan base. The Lost World: Jurassic Park was completely forgettable and, with the exception of Jeff … Read more

Avengers: Age of Ultron Review

We are truly in the information age. We have so much information at our fingertips it’s hard to stay away from finding out every individual detail about anything and everything. You learn everything you can about a certain thing, whether it be a band, a book or, in this case, a movie. That can cause quite a few problems, however. I’ve known there was going to be a sequel to the Avengers movie since, well, … Read more

I’ll go through topics from my initial thoughts, to traveling with it and where it exceeds expectations, as well as where it has limitations.

Netflix Originals: Daredevil – Episode 1 Review

When first learning of Netflix and Marvel teaming up to create Daredevil, I immediately had my reservations about it. While Marvel has enjoyed massive success with it’s exploding MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) on the big screen, their other ventures haven’t always done that well. Don’t get me wrong, though. Netflix has been a driving force for the last few years, and with their insanely successful Netflix Originals series skyrocketing to some of the best shows … Read more

ErgoGrip Universal Comfort Grip Review

Upon receiving the ErgoGrip in the mail, I must say, I was rather relieved. I would finally have a product that would take the weight and some of the awkwardness off my hands while holding my tablet. I own a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1″ and the size makes it very uncomfortable holding in one hand so I was glad to find a product tha claims to take that uncomfortable holding technique and make it … Read more

X-Men: Days of Future Past Movie Review

Stop! Wait! Hold the press! Are you telling me that they’ve made another X-Men movie? One that is not only a sequel to the original X-Men triology but also the newer, First Class, installment? One that, essentially, negates Brett Ratner’s terrible X-Men: The Last Stand and the equally atrocious X-Men Origins: Wolverine by Gavin Hood? Sign me up for that! Bryan Singer returns to the X-Men franchise to direct X-Men: Days of Future Past and, … Read more

Guardians of the Galaxy Movie Review

From “I’m Not In Love” by 10cc that sets up the prologue to “Come and Get Your Love” by Redbone that begins the main story, the tone is set right from the start with Guardians of the Galaxy. This isn’t your everyday superhero film, though it does have all the characteristics of a Marvel one. Guardians of the Galaxy is contagiously upbeat right from the opening credits and keeps the mood light throughout. It has … Read more

Review of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

“You are only quite a little fellow in a wide world, after all.” These words, spoken with such warmth by Gandalf (Ian McKellen) to his burglar, sum up the movie and the trilogy perfectly. For this isn’t quite a movie about Bilbo (Martin Freeman) and his unexpected journey as much as it is just him being a small cog in an extremely large machine. Bilbo is very much a little fellow in this story that … Read more

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Movie Review

If you were to tell me that a sequel, to a franchise that’s been rebooted for a third time, that had lost it’s director, writers and the majority it’s actors would be one of the most successful films of the year, I would’ve called you a liar. Yet, that’s exactly what happened with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Even amidst one of the stronger summers for cinema, this one definitely stood its own … Read more
