Movie Review: The Dry (2020) *Spoiler Free*

Based on the best selling novel by Jane Harper, The Dry is a murder mystery set in a small, drought affected, Australian outback town. Eric Bana plays Federal Agent, Harry Falk, who returns to his hometown to attend his childhood friend Luke's funeral, who died in what appears to have been a murder suicide of his family.  Unfortunately Harry's presence opens up some old wounds for some locals surrounding his departure from the town as a teenager some twenty years prior. Luke's parents, not convinced that the investigation into their son and his family's death has reached the right conclusion, ask Harry to look over the case. Given the plot of this film, and its very confronting opening scene (if you're not really used to watching murder mysteries) it's hard to describe this film as 'enjoyable', even though it is, in the sense that it kept me engaged the whole time. The story is split between present day and twenty years earlier, just prior to Harry'

Book Review: Time Rich by Steve Glaveski

I remember listening to a podcast interview with Steve Glaveski where he talked about 'being in flow' and how artists and other creative people struggled with time management because they needed to be in the 'flow state' to do their most creative work. The 'flow state' is basically being on such a roll with whatever you're doing you don't want to stop just because your diary says you've scheduled something else for the next 30 minutes. I don't remember too much from the podcast but it really resonated with me so much that I immediately ordered a copy of Steve's second book, Time Rich - Do Your Best Work, Live Your Best Life  that he was promoting at the time. To cut straight to the bottom line, probably one of the most disappointing books I've read in quite a while. Which is not to say the content is bad, it's just the title and blurb information, in my opinion, completely misrepresents what the book is about. There is a strong sugges

Movie Review: Wonder Woman 1984 (2020) *Spoiler Free*

After having very much enjoyed the first Wonder Woman movie I was definitely looking forward to Wonder Woman 1984 , and I'm glad I was able to see it in a cinema. Though I wouldn't say it's as much of an essential big screen experience as perhaps director, Patty Jenkins, seemed to imply. I say that because the action scenes aren't nearly as epic as the first film (except maybe the opening warrior games scene which benefits from scale) and there's something a little off about all of the bigger, more fantastical action. Which I'll get into later. Which is not to suggest this isn't a fun, watchable movie, you just don't need a big screen to showcase dialogue scenes. Bigger images doesn't add anything to them. Going in I was expecting a lighter and brighter film than the previous movie. The trailers and posters make that pretty clear. Once past the flashback to Themyscira and into 1984, I was immediately hit with a Superman III vibe in the way Wonder W
