I read books, play video games, and watch TV. I have opinions about most of what I consume that way. And I like to write those opinions down.
However, I find reviews saying ‘I love it’ or ‘I hate it’ pretty useless, so I do things differently. Instead, I try to look at why something does or does not work for me. Are the characters internally consistent? Does the plot make sense? What writing smells does the story have.
That way, you know not just if I liked it, but it should help you determine if you will like it. I hope.

I loved Spider-man when I was a teenager, evidenced by about a meter of Spider-man comics upstairs. I heard good things about the Playstation 4 game, but I don’t have a PS4. So when my PS5 arrived, I immediately bought Spider-man: Miles Morales, which includes the remake of the PS4 original.

Star Trek: Discovery, one of several new incarnations of Star Trek, is in its third season. I’ve already written about season 1 and 2 before. Normally, that would be that, but I have new things to say about season 3.

The Umbrella Academy is Netflix’s dark take on the X-Men. You see, when you think about it, the X-Men should be a dysfunctional bunch of maniacs, given what Professor X puts them through. And that’s exactly what the Umbrella Academy members are.
