As a die hard lover of GI Joe growing up (including collecting the comics), this is a modernization of Snake Eyes Origin Story (which by the way was a HUGE departure from the original comic book story). Decent, not great, but not too bad either. I would say its a definite rental, see it in theaters if you were a fan of it growing up like me.
Its good to be back in the USA. Ive been decompressing and getting caught up on so many loose ends, but have had time for movies...
I have a love-hate relationship with M. Night Shyamalan. Dont get me wrong, he is one of the best, incredibly talented, and some of his films are among my favorites (Unbreakable, 6th Sense, Signs) and others, not so much (the Village- I thought he broke the audiences trust with that one) but suffice it to say, I will likely try just about anything he is involved in.
OLD is classic M Night, and while the premise is simple, its twist ending is just perfect. I know many are complaining about it, but I actually enjoyed it. Its a home-run rental, but if you are a fan of M Night, I dont think you will be disappointed.
Thank you Thad Forester for the interest and interview about what I’m doing in Indonesia,
I would consider this part 3 for those who have been following and wanted an update, but it also includes a lot of background about how it all came together, including discussions on vaccines and why equitable distribution will be such a challenge moving forward.

Was able to catch a movie today here in Jakarta, and the only thing play that I hadn't seen was Voyagers. This is a remake of Lord of the Flies in Space, that said, it was FAR better than the previews and what I was expecting. Definite rental, see it in theaters if you have the itch to get out.
All is well here, Ill be updating with a podcast soon.
Really mixed thoughts on this one. It felt like it was a touch bit more writing and better editing away from being really great. Many loose ends in the story, but overall the opportunity to get into a theater and see anything on a big screen was a welcome relief for me. It would make for a good home rental, and not everyone will like it in theaters, but it was worth it to me. Daisy Ridley's character felt a little too close to her Star Wars counterpart Rey.
In 2019, Pro Maui Wedding Photographer Scott Drexler made the jump from his Canon 5Diiis to Canon RPs, which he has been shooting with since. Here are his thoughts on the Canon R5, R6, Rp, R, 20 vs 45 MPix, why he is upgrading again and much more. Basically 2 camera nerds talking about cameras- Enjoy!
