Into the Dark: Culture Shock (Hulu)

Culture Shock at points is hard to follow. It’s starts out confusing, then becomes clear, then takes a surprising hard turn. For a while in the middle you will be very lost. I almost gave up on it during this period but when the reveal came I understood what was happening. Overall, I liked the idea by the end, just think it could have been executed differently.  Continue reading Into the Dark: Culture Shock (Hulu)

Midsommar… is not for everyone

If you saw Hereditary, think back to the last 30 minutes of the movie, then stretch that out over 2 hours. If you didn’t see Hereditary, Midsommar is a beautifully shot film that is 2 hours of dread within a peaceful (looking) setting. There are a lot of shocking/upsetting moments that will stick with you long after the movie ends. Again, it’s beautiful though! Continue reading Midsommar… is not for everyone

Spider-Man: Far From Home review *Spoiler Free*

Spider-Man:Far From Home does a great job of trying up the loose ends from Endgame while also advancing Peter’s story arc. We get a proper introduction to one of Spider-Man’s many arch nemeses (and my favorite) and are led directly into one of my favorite Spider-Man story lines. When he has to face the… well you’ll see.  Continue reading Spider-Man: Far From Home review *Spoiler Free*

NBA Draft Sleeper: Quinndary Weatherspoon

I have to give myself credit for being an early believer in Quinndary. I went to watch Mississippi State to scout his brother and he jumped off the screen to me. I was shocked to not find him on any boards but that changed soon after. I love his game and feel like he is the type of guy that can “come out of nowhere” and be a contributor, maybe even a starter, for some team down the road.

NBA Draft Sleeper Profile: Carsen Edwards

If you’ve listened to a single episode of the 3rd Round Picks podcast or follow me on twitter you’ve likely heard me talk about Carsen Edwards. It was likely no surprise that he ended up in my top 15 when the board came out. In short, I love Carsen Edwards. I love his game, I love his personality, and I believe he’s going to be around for a long time.  Continue reading NBA Draft Sleeper Profile: Carsen Edwards

NBA Draft Sleeper Profile: Jaylen Nowell

Jaylen Nowell caught my by surprise. I got around to scouting Washington pretty early in the process but all the hype was around Thybulle. I was barely paying attention to Nowell because he wasn’t on many people’s boards but I couldn’t help to notice his talent. Others started taking notice around that time as well and he continued to get better as the season went on. I did not know where he would land on my board when I sat down to put it together but I only had a slight hesitation about putting him at 12.  Continue reading NBA Draft Sleeper Profile: Jaylen Nowell
