Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story

It was kind of like a decent cover of your favorite band. You know there is no way it's as good as the original, but can still be entertaining if you don't go in with pre-conceived notions of how things should be.

Re: Bonkers UFO stories in the New York Times

I don't know, I would expect now that everyone has a digital camera and camcorder attached to their hands, we would be seeing a lot more video and reports of UFO's not fewer. One thing I know for sure, is that no species intelligent enough for interstellar travel is coming to Earth just to stick a p...

Spoilers below. . . . . Spoilers . . . I was 10 when Star Wars came out for the first time. As an engineer and nerd, I loved the original trilogy. I disliked the prequels.

Re: Anyone cook Sous Vide?

Yeah, Sous Vide is cool. I use the Anova. I've done chicken breasts that are cooked through and super juicy. Prime rib that is the perfect temp all the way through. I'll make a paste of spices and butter and slather the prime rib with it after cooking and broil it 10 minutes to make a nice crust.

Re: Jack Reacher

I pretty much agree with the original post. Not as good as the first movie. I felt int he first movie, they made better use of Reacher's investigative skills, intelligence, and righter of wrongs. The second movie was simply more of a cookie cutter action flick.

Re: Tablet advice

In your case, the camera on the tablet is going to be the most important feature. Many tablets, especially the lower cost ones, have shitty cameras. I would say read the reviews and pay special attention to the camera sections. Although I'm not a huge Apple fan, usually the iPhones and iPads have th...

There's a 4? I know there was an Ip-Man that did not have Donnie Yen, but the three with him are thoroughly enjoyable to watch, 3 a little less so than the first two. To me they are kind of grand and epic in their story telling in a similar way that some western classics are like The Searchers with ...

Re: Nvidia Shield TV

I picked one up because I also have a 4K TV. It's one of the streaming devices that will output in 4K.
Playing some of the games if actually pretty fun. I've not run Kodi yet, but probably will soon. Plex runs fine, as does a ton of other apps.
