Sadly I missed posting in the month of June. The last time that happened was 2011! Still, I had a good excuse and made up for it a bit later.
Total number of posts 57
Total number of tags recorded in the flog db
of which were used in 2021
can make it in to the top tags this year.

Just before I release the annual Yearly Summary...
Here are a few Movie and Series reviews
Spider-man - No Way Home :: Massive thumbs up! Lots of fan service, but also lots of good story/characters.
The Matrix Resurrections :: Thumbs up. You are going to either love or hate this. Lots and lots of fans service, but a genuinely interesting plot that takes the series in a new direction. I kept smiling throughout.
Falcon and Winter Soldier :: Takes a few episodes to get going and shows some oddly bad special effects. Also some oddly placed special effect sequences. After that it finds its feet and leads to good solid story that is worth your time.
Hawkeye :: Wasn't expecting much and it blew my socks off! Not what I expected from the word go. Genuinely cared about the characters. Want to see more of this great cast.
Snowpiercer :: Yes, that old film with Captain America. Never seen it before and ... Three key observations. 1) It's a horror film first and science fiction second. 2) The actual SY-FI ending is very good, not sure it's worth the runtime. 3) All this is let down by technical plot holes all over the place. Like, where does everyone eat/sleep/toilet/etc and why does the number of carriages change so often?
Don't get me started on the "shoot across to other carriages while going around a steep bend" bit :(
Life has become a little more strenuous than normal.
All technology endeavours have taken a huge dive, time-wise.
I now have a standing desk. Which is interesting as you have to keep moving :)
