Mile 22


Better than I was expecting, and if you are into these kinds of special operations movies, I would say its worth seeing in theaters, otherwise a DEFINITE rental. I won't ruin anything for you and say no more.

COREFIT By Proven Nutrition


COREFIT by Proven Nutrition - Produced & Shot by Michael The Maven



Had a great shoot last month for a product I have been using for over a year now, I just love it. In the past, I was pretty heavy into gatorade to rehydrate, and then I learned how much sugar is in it and how bad it is for you.

My friend Paul Romero, an ultra marathon athlete introduced me to this energy drink called COREFIT (formerly known as CORE), and I was instantly hooked. Not only does it taste great, it's low glycemic (only 2g of sugar per serving) while still delivering critical amino acids like L-Glutamine and L-Leucine, it also provides citrulline-malate and cissus quadrangularis (which promotes weigh loss, pain relief and bone restoration), none of those three ingredients are found in Gatorade.

If can order samples of COREFIT here:

In terms of the video itself, it was shot on the following cameras:

Sony A9
Sony A7Riii
Sony A7iii
Panasonic GH5

and the idea was to take sounds cross fitters are used to hearing and making a music from it. Im very proud of the result!

As a heads up, I was not paid by Proven Nutrition to post or say these things, or even to make the video. Its a great product I love, that said, Im likely to be hired as a business consultant for them, so I just wanted to be clear on that. :)

The Meg


Someone spent a lot of money on this, and it actually had some potential. They spent a lot of time explaining how a creature like this could be missed for so long, but in the end...man it got really awful. lol

Its a rental!

Mission Impossible: Fallout


It was decent. Not as amazing as everyone is saying, but very solid. The stunts were quite incredible, especially in that Tom Cruise did most of his own. That is really mind blowing. Its worth seeing in theaters, just don't go in with really high expectations!

Equalizer 2


I really enjoyed the first one based on the TV miniseries from the 90s and had high hopes for more. One aspect that I liked was that it focused much more on the human relationship aspects, which is something that is often overlooked and forgotten for action movies. It definitely added to the film, the negative was that because of editing errors, it felt slowed down. Very slow at times.

It is a rental.
