TV Series Review: Loki (2021) *Spoiler Free*

Marvel's third, direct movie tie in series, Loki immediately piqued my interest tenfold when I heard it would be a time travel themed series. Basically completing the trifecta of my favorite themes, Sci-fi, Superheroes, and Time Travel (pretty much the ingredients of Avengers: Endgame with a lot less superheroes). While it's not really fair to compare any of the three series, WandaVision , The Falcon and the Winter Soldier , and Loki to each other (they're all very different), Loki, for me, had the most satisfying season finale of them all... and not just because it's the only series confirmed for a second season. Which is important to mention because it's possible to forgive a few loose ends if you know there's still more to come. Loki follows the journey of Loki (Tom Hiddleston) as we know him to be at the end of the first Avengers movie, where we saw him escape in Avengers: Endgame. His escape sets off a Nexus event, an anomaly in the timeline, that attract

Sending a Big Cheese Into Space - Richard Branson, First CEO to Visit Space

Richard Branson in space #Unity22 Photo: Virgin Galactic Last month Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos, announced his intention to send himself into space on a test flight for his Blue Origin Space Tourist trips. Clearly Virgin Galactic CEO, Richard Branson, was having none of that, today becoming the first 'big cheese' to visit space and probably a strong contender for the list of weird things sent into space . Apparently Richard brought forward his company's schedule of test flights for his reusable space tourist bus, the VSS Unity, with this flight being only the second time the craft has carried people. The success of Richard's trip is dependent upon which classification of what constitutes being in 'outer space' you endorse. Evidently crossing something called the Kármán line  - 100 kilometers/62 miles up - is what the US Department of Defense considers to be 'outer space' however you don't need to go that high to experience true weightless space travel.

Movie Review: Buckley's Chance (2021) *No Spoilers*

If you're going to see this film simply because Bill Nighy is in it, as I did, then his casting has paid off, however his performance as Grandpa Spencer may leave you scratching your head. He certainly looks the part, as a long in the tooth, grizzled, sheep station owner, but then he starts talking and... is that an Aussie accent he's doing? It's hard to tell because it's such a low key, stilted performance by Bill. He's initially presented as a real hard, grumpy, no nonsense, stay out of my way, kind of character but he just seems to care too much, from the get go, about his newly arrived, American family, he's never met, of his fairly recently deceased, estranged son. Buckley's Chance tells the story of Ridley (Milan Burch) and his mother, Gloria (Victoria Hill), who, a year after her husband's death, decide to move from New York to make a fresh start on Ridley's Grandfather's Sheep Station in Outback Western Australia (though the film is shot

Wholesale Ted's 50 Ways You Can Invest & Earn Money Passively

Wholesale Ted, A.K.A. Sarah Chrisp, is one of the few online entrepreneurs I trust to provide good information about ways to earn money online. Previously I shared her video,  100 Websites & Apps To Make MONEY For FREE At Home Online , which is well worth a look if you're looking to start some form of side hustle in your free time. Sarah has since followed up this video with a new comprehensive run through of 50 Ways You Can Invest & Earn Money Passively , including several ways Sarah actually does earn passive income. It should be noted that the term 'passive income' is often associated with too good to be true online business courses claiming to teach you how to earn millions while you sleep. If that's what you're looking for then this video is probably not for you. Sarah presents you with legitimate ways to earn passive income that may take time to ramp up to anything substantial or might require considerable work up front before you can sit back and see

Batwoman CW TV Series (2019- ) - The Best Batman (without Batman) TV Show So Far?

On multiple occasions I've written about my desire for a live action Batman TV series including this post, The Bat Suit and CSI Batman , and this post, Batman Television Series Reboot - It's About Time . Unfortunately (and fortunately depending on my mood) Batman on the big screen has pretty much killed any chance of a Batman TV series for the time being. That said, there have been a few shows in recent time circling around Batman such as, Gotham , Pennyworth , and Titans . I also hear director of The Batman , Matt Reeves, is doing one too. Gotham started out promising in its first season but lost me due to awkward scheduling (I think when it started I was watching it week to week on free to air TV). Plus the focus on the bad guys didn't really do it for me. I like Batman's rogue gallery more when Batman is the one going after them. Pennyworth I've yet to check out but the idea of a prequel for Bruce Wayne's Dad's butler doesn't sound appealing to me reg

Sending Weird Things into Space - Can We Get a Big Cheese on the Moon?

After Elon Musk's SpaceX program launched a Tesla with their Starman into space, Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos, thinks he can go weirder by sending himself, his brother Mark , and a mystery winning bidder of a third seat in his Blue Origin, reusable rocket, the New Shepard, into space. Which is not weird in itself but kind of sounds a bit bonkers when you word it as "we're sending our CEO into space". To be fair Jeff is fulfilling a life long dream of going into space, and probably wants to demonstrate that his new space tourism business is safe by trying it out for himself. I'm not sure Elon ever had a lifelong dream to launch a car into space but good on him for doing it just because he can. Of course NASA and Russia's Space programs pioneered sending weird things into space in the 1960's, particularly chimpanzees, but, more weirdly a dog (or two?). I kind of understand the chimpanzees as an analogue for human space travel but I'm not so sure about the do

Movie Review: Cruella (2021) *Spoiler Free*

I must admit, the main reason I wanted to see Cruella was I really liked the visuals of the the trailers. It definitely looked liked an interesting approach to a character that's never really been on my radar beyond the original, Disney, animated feature (which I'm not entirely sure I've ever seen but I did read the novelization as a child). I have heard some reviewers criticise the director, Craig Gillespie, for not really doing anything interesting with the visuals in this film, and I can see there were definitely opportunities missed. I kind of feel in the hands of someone like Tim Burton, Cruella could've been far more visually stunning. However, I still found it a very visually interesting film, largely thanks to some amazing costume and set  design, and I really liked the magazine typography combined with live action effects used through various montages. I also appreciated the heavy use of popular music over a more cinematic score to help capture the mid 1970
