Plot:

Review: Braven

I stumbled upon the movie Braven because I decided I wanted to see more of Jason Momoa’s filmography. I scrolled through his IMDB page and wrote some titles down for viewing in the future. Braven was on top of my list because it was a recent movie, and not a very long one. I was not disappointed.

Review: Ocean’s Eight

As someone who thought the previous Ocean’s film were nice popcorn movies, when I heard they were making a new one with an all female cast, I was interested. The names that were attached to the project, like the lovable and super talented Cate Blanchett, were enough for me to withhold any misgivings until I saw the trailer. Then I saw the trailer, and was absolutely sold.

Review: Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection

I bought Uncharted: The Nathan Drake collection in a combination deal with my Playstation. The collection is comprised of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted: Among Thieves and Uncharted: Drake’s Deception. I finished the last game of the three on the 2nd of April. And what a ride it was.

Before I bought the games I didn’t really know anything about the Uncharted series except for the fact that it was about an explorer. I figured it was something like Indiana Jones/Tomb Raider. I was right, kinda.
