Tomb Raider


This was quite possibly the worst movie I've seen in the last year. Don't even bother with it. It started off with potential, but the last 1/3 of the movie was just atrocious, ruining the rest of the movie. They tried to pull off an Indiana Jones style booby trap navigation kinda thing but it was uncreative and felt borrowed heavily from those films.

Pacific Rim 2 - Uprising


If you liked the first one (I did) you will like this one. Its a little slow at times, but if overall a fun movie. Recommended seeing in theaters if you liked the first one.

I sure love shooting for fun and challenging myself. It makes me feel alive and happy, but it feels like I’m 10x more motivated to do portraits for friends. I think my friends enjoy it as well and I’m always happy to give them something memorable. I feel it is a great way to give. #d850 and #a7riii are both such wonderful cameras, I’m super impressed and will have an epic shootout soon (all tests are finished)! Thank you all for your patience! #epicshootout #maui #hawaii #luckywelivehawaii
