Tetris is the most exciting action movie I’ve seen in a long time
March 31st, 2023 under Apple TV+. [ Comments: none ]

I will start off this review and tell you action movies are not really my thing unless they are disaster flicks. However, the trailer for Tetris on Apple TV+ looked as addicting as the game (who didn’t play Tetris as a kid) that I just had to check out. And it was even better than I thought it could be.

Henk Rogers (Taron Egerton) is an American videogame designer whose life changed when he saw Tetris at a videogame convention in Las Vegas. He loved it so much that he bought the rights for it for Japan for PC and arcade.

He knew he had a hit on his hands, so he went to his banker and secured the money to make it happen. However, since he had a failed business venture with them, they make him put his house up for collateral.

Now, he has to make sure it succeeds, or he loses everything. And he only wants the best for his wife and daughters.

Henk finds out that spoiled rich kid Kevin Maxwell, who works for his ruthless dad Robert Maxwell a publishing tycoon, won’t share the rights to the arcade game versions of Tetris.

Henk is a desperate man, so he goes to the head of Nintendo and tries to get him to invest. That is when he was introduced to the future Game Boy. So now, he must have handheld rights for Tetris so that he can put the game on their console and make millions and millions of dollars.

So he decides to go around the Maxwells and sneaks into Russia to talk to the people who created the game and made the original contract so that he can get their approval to license the game. Russia is still a communist country, and they don’t want to share. The KGB will try to intimidate Henk, his wife, and everyone involved with this deal because Robert Maxwell is in cahoots with the Russian leader Mikhail Gorbachev.

And that is when the movie really has you on the edge of your seat, like when blocks start coming down quickly on Tetris. Remember how nerve-wracking and thrilling that was at the same time?

That is this movie from beginning to end. It is face paced. You never know what is going to happen next. You are not sure who are the good guys are and who the bad ones. However, you are rooting for the hero Henk. You want him to get this game, but there are so many hoops he has to jump through, and he is like Kevin Hart playing basketball with people the size of Shaq.

I honestly felt like I was playing Tetris while I was watching the movie. The vision that director Jon S. Baird had for it played out smashingly. So much so that you feel like you don’t have time to breathe because you don’t want to miss a single second of the story.

A story that makes something we grew up with so much more interesting. Who knew all of this went on? But most of it did, and that is why it is so great that it got told.

It made me want to download and play Tetris again. But only after the movie ended because nothing was going to distract me from it. I can’t wait to watch it again because I am sure I missed so many little things.

So if you are looking for an action movie that is not all about cheap thrills, then you need to watch Tetris as soon as you get home. I promise you will enjoy it as much as I did. Actually, you will probably enjoy it even more because action movies are your thing.


Jimmy Fallon won late night’s battle on the Donald Trump indictment jokes
March 31st, 2023 under Donald Trump, Jimmy Fallon. [ Comments: none ]

In case you somehow missed it, Donald Trump was indicted, or as he spells it, “indicated,” yesterday.

Well, as expected, late night had a field day with jokes about it. However, there was only one winner. Mostly because I only watched Jimmy Fallon’s segment on The Tonight Show.

Anyways, he mashed up Trump’s words to the music of The Pointer Sisters’ I’m So Excited and changed it to I’m So Indicted. It is so simple. And because of that, it is so brilliant.

Who thought he would win March Madness? It is kind of like how well my college is doing in the other March Madness. But I don’t want to talk about it because I don’t want to jinx them.


Jon Bon Jovi’s son pranked him good!
March 31st, 2023 under Bon Jovi. [ Comments: none ]

Jon Bon Jovi and his son, Jesse, are in the Rosé wine business together. Therefore, they spend a lot of time together. And they have some fun in between all of their work on Hampton Water.

And now, Jesse is having some fun at his dad’s expense. That is because he put up billboards in NY, LA, Miami, and social media with his father’s phone number on them. Because of that, the Bon Jovi singer’s phone is blowing up with people calling him.

People like me. So what happens when you call 615-398-2765? You get a message that says, “Hey, it’s Jon Bon Jovi. Leave a message, and I’ll right back to you. Thanks.” I didn’t leave one because what I am going to say to him? I am going to tell him I think he has the best ass in Rock’n’Roll?”

Although I could ask him how he is going to get revenge on his son.

So if you have wanted to tell Bon Jovi what you think of him, now is your chance.

They actually made Birdemic 3
March 31st, 2023 under Movies. [ Comments: none ]

Birdemic: Shock and Terror was a cult classic because it was so awful. As in, it was so bad that it was laughable. The script was horrendous. The special effects were so fake and cheap. And the acting was worse than an elementary school production. And even with all of that, it worked somehow.

The same could not be said about Birdemic 2, which was just unwatchable.

So I thought that would be the merciful ending to the franchise. And I was wrong because they made Birdemic 3: Sea Eagle. Which is described as, “From writer/director James Nguyen comes this new sequel to his BIRDEMIC: SHOCK AND TERROR, “the worst film ever made and a true cult hit” (The Guardian): When global warming triggers chaos along the Northern ”

Since I am a sucker, I have been sucked into wanting to see this movie. I am sure I will regret it. But we all make bad choices in life. And this will be another one of mine.
