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.
