The story is about ten people of different professions and social status who received an unusual invitation from a certain millionaire named U.N. Owen. The invitation requires them to stay for a week in a private island called Indian Island.
I stumbled upon this 2014 film on iFlix. Based on a 2006 novel by Frank Turner Hollon, the movie received the “Best of D.C.” award at the D.C. Independent Film Festival.
It centers on Claire Cosi who manages The Village Blend, a coffeehouse in New York City. However, as the business booms, customers are dying. A good romantic mystery plus doses of knowledge on coffee and recipes.
This is one of the reasons why I prefer watching foreign films than Hollywood. Less effects, just pure story of human character. The movie played on the who’s-smarter-than-who game. And the film played it so well at the end.
The topic of happiness can be very subjective. For one, people have different concepts, different perceptions on how we achieve happiness.

The film is about Ray Moody’s business, Kidnap Solutions, LLC. It is an 8-hour abduction that provides alternative therapy for his clients. People call him to kidnap them mainly to traumatize them or scare them out of their addiction, weight gain, or whatever personal problem it might be.
After many decades of Archie comics (including the cartoons), it was refreshing to see a new take on the characters. However, if you’re a fan of Archie comics, cartoons, and all of its spin-offs, you may (or may not) like Riverdale.

Reece, a mailman who wants to become an author, comes up with a plan to write a first-person account of a serial killer by becoming a serial killer himself. In short, he kills in the name of research to come up with a “Diary of a Serial Killer.”
The story is a bank robbery gone wrong told backwards, one day at a time. So the narrative started on a Friday, and it referred that the bank robbery happened on a Tuesday.
As the title suggests, The Last Assassination by James E. Doucette is a hard-to-put-down thriller that fits the genre. It tells about a father who uses his connections and military skills to get his son out of a predicament.
The film tries to satirize romantic comedy and ironically, the main character ends ups living it.

2020 – A Simply Divine Mystery, written by Lee Raudonis, runs on the premise “What if the USA is governed by devout Christians and proposing a constitutional amendment making the New Testament as the basis of all civil laws?”
The novel meets my expectation of what a suspense thriller should be. The author was able to manage the multiple characters which provide the substantial sub-plots. Despite the multiple characters, I can still root for Akira as the main character.
This film reminds us of patriotism and selflessness. With the coming elections, one couldn’t help but think of the mistakes committed in the past that brought us to the present.
This game just brings nostalgia to me. I’ve seen how video games evolved through the years and this is my first exposure to gaming.
