Suicide Squad is great! The critics are wrong. There is nothing wrong with this film. I really enjoyed it. It has a great mix of comedy, action, and character development. The antagonists are cool and original, and the protagonists are more noble than you might expect. Will Smith delivers a solid performance as Deadshot, and Margo Robbie absolutely steals every scene as Harley Quinn.

The complaints about an uneven tone and confusing editing are baseless. My only complaint is that the film introduced a whole bunch of characters, and I wanted more time to get to know them, but the film did well with the time it had.

If you have any interest in Suicide Squad, go see it. Don't let the critics deter you.

Star Trek Beyond is quite good and is my favorite of the new Star Trek films. It has more character development than the other films, yet still has a lot of action and great visuals. The cast has grown into their roles, with solid performances all around. I'd still like to see more of TV Trek's spirit of exploration, sense of wonder, and embrace of big ideas, but Star Trek Beyond is a step in the right direction.

+John Kusters That's true, but the old films had more of the original Trek spirit. And there are plenty of non-SF films that tackle big ideas. I don't think big ideas and big budgets are inherently incompatible.

I'm also looking forward to Discovery. I hope it'll be good. It is certainly easier to tell more in-depth stories in a season of television than in a 2-hour movie.

Google is offering a 4-month free trial of Google Play Music and YouTube Red! But it's only available to US residents who haven't signed up for either service in the past.
If you have yet to try out Google Play Music, or alternatively, YouTube Red, then Google’s latest offer to get you to sign up for the service is certainly one worth looking at. In celebration…

The best thing I can say about the Warcraft movie is that its graphics are much better than the game. The writing, however, is not. Like the game, the movie's characters are one-dimensional fantasy stereotypes engaged in cliched fantasy situations or just talking about epic things using epic words. There is almost no character development, and the movie reveals precious little about the few interesting characters.

I had hoped that at least I would enjoy seeing some of the places I visited in the game fully realized in the film, but there are very few panoramic shots of iconic places, and, when they are present, they only last a few seconds, before cutting to an interior or close-up. Some place names were rattled off, but I could not tell where most of the scenes were set. I didn't feel like I was visiting an epic fantasy world, like I did in the Lord of the Rings films.

Hard-core Warcraft fans may enjoy seeing characters from the game's lore appear on screen, but most people will get little enjoyment from this film.

Interesting. Australia is moving north 7 cm per year, but its maps use longitude and latitude coordinates that are fixed to features within the country. Those official coordinates haven't been updated since 1994, causing them to now be off by more than one meter. That's a problem for GPS navigation for self-driving cars and tractors.
Australia is to shift its longitude and latitude to address a gap between local co-ordinates and those from global navigation satellite systems (GNSS).

I can't wait for this film! It looks fantastic! It clearly owes a lot to Inception, but that's a good thing.

Introduction
I'm a man with two brains. One brain is an engineer. The other brain is an artist. That's probably why I've been drawn to video games since I was 11. My career so far as been ruled by my engineer brain, and I've had a fairly successful career as a software engineer.

But my artist brain has been asserting dominance for the past few years, and I now want to making a living doing something that expresses my creativity. I want to make games for a living. Specifically, I want to make games that tell stories that have as much impact as a movie and as much depth as a novel.
