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.

What if you could reverse time for certain objects, like bullets? Or cars? Or people? That’s what the movie Tenet is about. It was made by the director who brought us Memento and Inception: Christopher Nolan.
