    Westworld Season One: What A Mindscrew

    “There is no threshold that makes us greater than the sum of our parts, no inflection point at which we become fully alive. We can’t define consciousness because consciousness does not exist. Humans fancy that there’s something special about the way we perceive the world, and yet we live in loops, as tight and as closed as the hosts do, seldom questioning our choices, content, for the most part, to be told what to do next.” – ¬†Robert Ford, Westworld¬†season one, episode 8 I swear HBO is so amazing. I mean, Game Of Thrones¬†is just so brilliantly done, and now this. The writing on Westworld¬†season one alone is extraordinary, and…

    My Descent Into The Series Westworld (HBO)

    “Some people choose to see the ugliness in this world. The disarray. I choose to see the beauty.” – Dolores Abernathy, Westworld With the marketing work that I do as part of my full-time job, I am in a constant immersion of Pop Culture. There was a lot of buzz surrounding Westworld when it first appeared on HBO back in October 2016. A majority of the content I passed though gave it rave reviews¬†as well. I finally found some time to sit down and watch it, and I can tell this show is right up my alley. Fun Fact: Did you happen to know that the series Westworld is actually…

    Never Have I Ever: Slumdog Millionaire (2008)

    For my first edition of Never Have I Ever, I watched Slumdog Millionaire. Admittedly, I am unsure of how I have never watched the movie to begin with. Slumdog Millionaire¬†won over 150 awards, including an Oscar for Best Motion Picture of the Year. ¬†It was release in Nov. 2008, and is a little over 8 years old now. I was a senior in college at the time. As the years have passed, I feel like it is something that increasingly gets referenced in pop culture. Particularly¬†on The Big Bang Theory.¬†And somehow until now, I never managed to see it. Slumdog Millionaire¬†follows Jamal Malik (Dev Patel), and his appearance on the…

    Best Of The Best: Netflix Movies Of 2016

    I’ve been a subscriber to Netflix for quite a while now, and I think their line-up keeps getting better with time.

    Super Mario Run – I See You Nintendo

    I had heard news that Nintendo was releasing Super Mario Run¬†not too long ago. Yesterday, as I was looking through my Twitter feed, I¬†saw that the game had been released in a¬†tweet from IGN. So of course, I downloaded it right way… When I opened the game, I was very impressed with the graphics and its’ overall feel.¬†It feels so much like classic Super Mario Bros. to me, and I love that about it! My first instinct was to play holding it in landscape position, like every other game I play on mobile, but you can’t. It only orientates vertical, and I really fail to understand the decision behind that.…

    Marco Polo Canceled By Netflix After 2 Seasons

    Much to my surprise, i’ve learned that the series¬†Marco Polo,¬†has been cancelled by Netflix. The show original premiered¬†at the end of 2014, with season 2 appearing in mid 2016. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show had¬†a loss of $200 million. Netflix and The Weinstein Company made a joint decision to cancel. This would make the show the first ever in the history of Netflix to be canceled without a 3rd season run, and their 4th show ever canceled. The last show Netflix canceled¬†was Bloodline, which I admit I never watched, and have no idea what it is about. If you have’t seen Marco Polo, I would highly recommend watching¬†it.…
