Daisy Edgar-Jones portrays the main character Kya, in the movie adaptation of Where the Crawdads Sing, she really brings the character to life straight off the pages of the book. The movie gets slow in a few places, but the visual aesthetics of the movie make up for it. All in all, the movie was very well done and kept pretty close to the book.

I played the original Lego Star Wars on the Wii as a kid and was terrible at it. This is going so much better for me. There is a single player and multi player so you can hard core grind by yourself or goof around with friends. The game is organized in to 10 separate 'worlds', one for each movie from the three trilogies and a tenth 'world' for the galaxy free play. The nine worlds that represent the movies all contain three levels with different challenges and objectives to complete. To start off you go through story mode and as you complete each 'world' you unlock the free play associated with it.
It's a really good game if you like having a story line to follow but once that story is complete it is open for complete chaos. It's also really cute and goofy and it is not nearly as serious as the source material while still maintaining that original story line.
10/10 I'm terrible at videogames and this one I'm doing pretty good.
The Tick is the creation of Bill Edlund, who first created a comic strip, then went on to make it into an animated cartoon, and next a one-season, live-action, comedy TV show. This review is about that live-action show. The Tick is a ridiculously strong superhero who is also quite clueless about everything and played perfectly by Patrick Warburton. He relies heavily on his sidekick, Arthur, who is the brains of the operation. Along with other interesting characters like Captain Liberty and Batmanuel, they fight an eclectic assortment of supervillains. My favorite episode was never aired and stars Armin Shimerman as The Terror. If you like quirky characters, this show is just right for you.
The Blair Witch Project is a found footage documentary style film telling the story of Heather, Michael and Joshua who travel to Burkittsville, Maryland to make a documentary on the legend of the Blair Witch. The film follows the trio as they hike into the woods in search of different locations to film and as night falls they find themselves lost. Trying to make it back to their car they soon realize they might not be alone and that the local legend might not be a legend at all. I enjoyed the found footage style of the movie. I thought it added to the tension in the atmosphere.

This TV comedy series follows the political career trajectory of Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) who works in the Parks and Recreation department of a small town in Indiana. The show features a full cast of quirky characters from April (Aubrey Plaza), the sulking twenty-something receptionist; to Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman), the ultra-masculine, libertarian, meat-eater; to Chris Traeger (Rob Lowe), the always upbeat, vegetarian, political middle manager. Parks and Recreation will put a smile on your face.
