Black Box (amazon video)

As a fan of Blumhouse films, I saw that Amazon was going to release a set of horror/Drama movie for their prime subscription.  One of these happened to be a black cast movie that had a very interesting concept with identity or your soul 

After losing his wife and memory in a car accident, a single father undergoes an agonizing experimental treatment that causes him to question who he really is

Time Trap (2017) Netflix

So this is a weird one. I’m usually into quality made movies or action packed epic films. Also If it is written well, a drama that catches my attention. But this recommendation was a 2017 B movie about time travel. I was told it was similar to my time travel preferences so I stopped to check it out. Here is the synopsis. A group of students become trapped inside a mysterious cave where they discover time passes differently underground than on the surface.

Tenet - Back to the movies

Being a huge Christopher Nolan Fan I was not going to let the Corona Virus stop me from seeing his new movie spectacular with his Black lead star.  This mind bending action thriller puts you back into the "inception" mind set of where things are going.  Not really sure where this one is going but we went to the movies just to see it

The Umbrella Academy season 2

Alicia and I sit down to watch season 2 of this cleverly created and directed Netflix show.  Because there are so many superhero shows out, we didn’t expect the encore to be as good as the first season.

On one day in 1989, 43 infants are inexplicably born to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by billionaire industrialist Sir Reginald Hargreeves, who creates the Umbrella Academy and prepares his "children" to save the world. In their teenage years, though, the family fractures and the team disbands. Fast forward to the present time, when the six surviving members of the clan reunite upon the news of Hargreeves' passing. They work together to solve a mystery surrounding their father's death,

So, Dark is a well written Sci Fi phenomenon. Even in German the complexities and time travel concepts are top notch. We pick up after the Apocalypse occurs in their small town in Germany. And a whole new sequence of events start out to uncover the true meaning behind the multidimensional love story between the two characters.

WestWorld season 3 (HBO)

Alicia and I get into the 3rd season of the acclaimed HBO series WestWorld.  As extraordinary as the first 2 seasons were, we didn't know what to expect from this season because it seems as though it ended as a mystery not as a continuation.  Here's our thoughts

Upload - Amazon Prime

Looking at the previews for this new TV series, I wasn't sure if this would be something I would find entertaining.  But here's the catch, Its about dying and your consciences is uploaded into a virtual reality.  Only if you can pay for the everlasting life.  Made me go Hmmm, so I invited Alicia to watch it with me.  Also as a added bonus, It was from Greg Daniels the creator of The Office, Parks and Recreation

This Amazon series was heavily advertised and touted as a great SCI FI  series.  From the works of a Swedish artist Simon Stalenhag, These 8 episodes were crated.  Obviously nothing I imagined it would be, and this is much more emotional and story based than your typical extravagant science fiction.

After seeing the first season of Altered Carbon. I was ver interested in seeing where the next season would go and If they even considered making another one. So what did Netflix give us. A second season and an Anime production. So, I debated if I should see both. I decided, What the Heck. I’ll see both. I was very disappointed with one of them.
