Enola Holmes

I’ve previously written on the fact that I am a fan of the Sherlock Holmes character.  Netflix has a new movie based on a character set in the Sherlock Holmes universe, Enola Holmes.  While clearly not canon, it looks interesting. When the Jude Law-Robert Downey, Jr. movie trailer first appeared, I was a bit worried as it looked to be a buddy cop movie rather than something truer to the spirit of the canon.  I was pleasantly surprised in that case.  I hope I will be here as well.

Movie review: 2036 Origin Unknown (2018)

Do not see this movie.  It is awful. You will never get that 94 minutes of your life back.  I made this mistake. Learn from it.

I am not sure I can tell you what the movie is about. It is a sci-fi movie and has something to do with artificial intelligence, but there is not a coherent story.  I think this was a vanity project of the director/producer, who, by the way, has seen way too much of the last 20 minutes of 2001.  I am a fan of Katee Sackhoff, and this was on Netflix, so I thought I’d give it a go.  While Ms. Sackhoff does a great job trying to keep this turd afloat, everything around her; the writing, the directing, the special effects are just awful.  Having lost 94 minutes to this monstrosity, I don’t want to spend any more of my life thinking about it further.  Just head my warning.  Skip this. 0 stars.

The modelwife got me to watch this Netflix show.  It is very good.  Extremely well acted.  Jason Bateman is a very good actor.  Warning, it is violent and there are some very uncomfortable scenes, but it is worth watching.

Travelers TV show

I recently found this Netflix show due to a friend’s post on Facebook.  Normally I am not a fan of time travel themed books, movies or TV shows.  However, Travelers is pretty well done and the acting is very good.  I recommend it.
