King of the Tigers Pt 4

I have once again made the tough and long journey to the Netflix tab in my browser and click play episode. I feel the need to reiterate that I am not binge-watching this show. In fact, I wait a day or two before watching another episode. A friend of mine almost spoiled somethings for me, so that’s why I am saying this. Before we continue, if you have not read the previous posts on this show, you can find Parts 1, 2, and 3 within this sentence.

King of the Tigers Pt 3

In this post, I will be continuing my crazy review of the Netflix docuseries Tiger King. Considering the order of these posts coming out overall, you might think that I’m binging this show, but you would be wrong. After each episode, I must take a bit to truly absorb what it was that I just saw. Before continuing to read this, I would suggest reading parts 1 and 2 so you can get an overall feel of how much my head hurts from this show.

King of the Tigers Pt 2

I have watched the second episode of Tiger King, and let’s just say that I’m a bit… perplexed is probably the right word. If you haven’t read the first part, you might be a bit confused. You can read my take on it here. Continue ahead if you are ready.

King of the Tigers Pt. 1

As you can probably tell from the title, I’ll be going over the crazy show that embraced us throughout the quarantine. Now, I’ve tried my best to keep from any information regarding this show other than the knowledge that this show is absolutely crazy. For that reason, I decided that if I truly want to talk about this show appropriately, I would need to go episode by episode in discussing the craziness that happens. I am writing this as of watching the first episode, so spoilers through that episode.

When Birds Attack

Over the course of this quarantine, I have continued watching amazingly bad movies. As of writing this post, I have watched the entirety of the Birdemic series. For those who have never heard of this series, it is a really bad attempt at having an environmental message. Both movies center around birds coming and attacking people because they are mad at global warming. Yes, that is the premise of both movies.

The thing about both movies is that even though I have told you the summary of the entire movie, you are still going to have to wait about forty minutes for anything to happen. In the first movie, Birdemic: Shock and Terror, a good portion of the movie watching the protagonist drive to work, fill up his gas tank, and get stuck in traffic. For a movie about saving the environment, a lot of time is spent driving. That and protagonist and a flat board of nothingness. Also, the CGI is utterly atrocious, but that is part of the fun.

The second movie, Birdemic 2: The resurrection, the protagonist spends the majority of his time getting from place to place on foot, so there is an improvement. Also, he does show emotion. It’s really creepy but is an improvement over a flat board. The majority of the second movie revolves around call-backs from the previous movie. Not much was added, but references. I would say the second movie is a bit better because it is more self-aware of how crazy everything is.

Love bad movies, most definitely check this series out. Both movies are on Amazon for your viewing pleasure.

Merging the Kingdom Back Together

A new merging game that has recently dropped on the GooglePlay store is Wild Kingdom. In essence, you are the new ruler of this kingdom and have to build it back up with the help of a sketchy assistant. The game is currently in early access, but I still feel that there is nothing to really show for the game overall. I really like the art style. It’s very Disney-like, similar to Robin Hood. I just can’t really tell if I would enjoy this game in the long run. It took me twenty minutes to get to the point in the early access where I literally can do nothing more. So far, I’m neutral about the game. I would definitely like to see more to see if I couldn’t enjoy the game long term. If they make more, I might come back to see how much it has changed, but for right now, I can’t really recommend it.
