reviews

I’m not a reviewer, but sometimes I blog a review-like post about a movie, book, tv show, or software application.

On Valerian

I generally don’t like to post negative reviews. What’s the point? So let me say right off that I did not hate the movie. It just left me feeling flat. I want to understand why. As a writer, I want to avoid these mistakes.

Following up on my review of three ergonomic keyboards last year, I pass along now Marco Arment’s review of the Matias Ergo Pro Keyboard, which he’s liking.

K is for Keyboard

Regular keyboards give me a pain — a pain in the wrist, specifically. It makes a huge difference when you’re typing a lot. So I tried three different ergonomic keyboards.

In Brother, Beat Takeshi shows LA hoods Yakuza style

For anyone interested in gangster movies, I’d say this is probably worth seeing. But for me it’s the Kitano-style Japanese touches in the story and some characters that puts this movie in the yes column.
