Gaming for the Planet

To be clear, I am considering JouleBug a game because that is what it is called in the GooglePlay store. It’s more of a competition so close enough. What I love about this “game” is that you work with other people to save the planet. There are a variety of tasks you can “Buzz” to tell the world that you did an action to help the environment. There are also competitions every once in a while to show off you world-saving actions to everyone involved. My one problem is that it’s so hard to remember to buzz in, and that is of no fault of the app. At this point, I just do things and realize that hours later I could have buzzed something. Also, I’m a vegetarian, and there is an action that says go a day without meat, so I literally could get that one every day if I were to remember. But I do think this is a fun app to use if you wanted to compete with your friends over something.

You can get the app for Android and iOS. If you would like more information about the company, the website is here. There are also similar apps with slightly different functions from this company if you want to check them out.

The Super Family is Back

Let me begin this post by saying that I have been waiting for this movie for fourteen years. I wasn’t very hype for it from the trailers, but the Incredibles 2 movie was exactly what I wanted. It fits in perfectly from the end of the last movie, and it was very seemless. The character’s hadn’t changed too much but there was still area’s of growth. I just absolutely loved Bob’s (the dad’s) internal conflict. It was so well done. Also, the villian made slightly more sense than the original did, but the justaposition was intriguing. I also got a very X-men vibe from the movie. If you replace “supers” with “mutants,” the message of the movies are very similar, but you just can’t hate a family superhero movie. If they were to make another movie, not saying they should, but I would like to see older Violet, Dash and Jack-Jack taking on a world that is more accepting of “supers” to see what new problems emerge in their society. I just personally think that that would be really interesting to see.

To Explain the Weird

When something weird happens, everyone needs a best fitting explanation to go along with it. It’s even better when it is in the form of a movie. This would be The Disaster Artist. This is the movie that explains how the movie The Room was made. I watched this directly after watching The Room, and feel that this is totally necessary to get the most enjoyment from the film. It goes through every single tiny detail that you have when watching the original movie. Why is that line of dialogue needed? What’s with all the football throwing? Everything is brought up that you wanted a reasonable answer for. It doesn’t answer the vaguest question of who is this guy, but do you really want the answer to that? I don’t.

The Best of Trash

Recently, after wanting to see this movie for a couple of years now, I finally got around to watching The Room, a now cult classic. This movie is kinda awful in the best ways possible. I was laughing through the entire thing, cringing through all of the sex scenes and waiting for there to be plot again. If you are a movie snob, just know that this is not for you. This is not a movie to be taken seriously. Would I watch this again? Most definitely. I now need to make an effort to watch this movie every so often. It’s going to be my new guilty pleasure, and there will be no shame from anyone. This might be one of my new favorite movies.

What a Bizzare Adventure Pt 3

Reading Part 3 of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure or Stardust Crusaders was an event. Not only was this part the longest of the three, it introduced a totally new concept, and it did so super well. It was such an amazing thing to see how they mixed the concept of Hamon that was prevalent in the pervious parts and mixed it together to introduce the concept of stands. Stands , put simpily, are  a manifestation of your soul. Each one, at least in this part, were expressed as tarot cards. It was just really cool to see a mixture of traditional and new creativity. So far, this is my favorite part, followed by Battle Tendency and Panthom Blood. Honestly, each part just gets better and better.

Tinder for the Gods

I’m going to tell you guys about this really interesting webcomic I finished reading. The title of this review tells you nearly all you need to know about #Blessed. In this, our protagonist is hating how lonely she is, decides to get on a dating app and accidentally wipes right on a pantheon of gods, seven to be exact. Now, she is a part of a prophecy and needs to go on dates will all of them and choose a single god. It is a really fun read, and will hopefully come out with a season 2 really soon. The ending was such a cliffhanger, and I need to know exactly what happens next. I would definitely suggest this webcomic to everyone.
