TV Show Review: Daredevil, Season 3

Details: More information can be found at https://www.netflix.com/title/80018294 and https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3322312/

Score: 8.4/10

After watching the now cancelled and generally mediocre seasons of Luke Cage and Iron Fist, I worried for this newest season of Daredevil. Luckily, my worries were unfounded. Daredevil season three brings back the quality production values that you saw in seasons one and two. As an aside, don’t go on Yahoo because they put spoilers for this show right onto the front page… those ass hats.

TV Show Review: Iron Fist, Season 2

Details: Official site is https://www.netflix.com/title/80002612

Score: 6/10

The most exciting part of the second season of Iron Fist was the ending and the implications for the future. Otherwise, season two of Iron Fist is better than the first season, but still not great.

Restaurant Review: Lucky’s Famous Burgers

Details: Located at 370 W 52nd St, New York, NY 10019. Official site is https://www.luckysfamousburgers.com/

Lucky’s Famous Burgers sells burgers. Duh. Unfortunately, with competitors like Shake Shack that sell a superior tasting burger at a lower price, there’s not reason to ever visit a place like Lucky’s unless you’re drunk and it’s the only place open nearby.

I ordered the number one combo, which was a cheddar burger with fries and a fountain soda for almost thirteen dollars after tax. The burger was fine. Fries were okay. It just cost a lot for something of this quality.

Overall, this place was fine, but really expensive for what it’s selling. If you want a quality burger, just go to Shake Shack.

Score: 6/10

Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken is essentially hipster fried chicken. It’s a place whose condiments include chipotle honey and wasabi honey. It’s very trendy.

Restaurant Review: NY Fresh Pizza

Details: Located at 787 9th Ave, New York, NY 10019. Here’s an unclaimed Yelp page: https://www.yelp.com/biz/ny-fresh-pizza-new-york

There’s pizza places, and then there are the one dollar slice places. Like most of these places, the slice are smaller, mostly because they only cost a dollar. Pizza here is fine. I generally feel a little sick after eating at one of these cheap pizza places and that was certainly true here. It’s still cheap though. There’s no where to sit, but there’s counter to eat on.

Score: 5.5/10

Book Review: Oathbringer, by Brandon Sanderson

Details: Written by Brandon Sanderson. More information can be found at https://brandonsanderson.com/books/the-stormlight-archive/oathbringer/

Score: 7/10

Oathbringer is the third book in the Stormlight Archive series of books. For the most part, I enjoyed the book. This is a lengthy book that seeks to immerse the reader into a fantastical world.

Movie Review: Christopher Robin

Details: More information can be found at https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4575576/

Score: 6/10

I’m not sure what I expected when I started watching this movie. I had a lot of ideas of what I wanted, and I generally got a small taste of all of them. Christopher Robin is a movie that touches upon all the notes that I’d want to see in a Winnie the Pooh movie, but doesn’t go in depth enough, leaving me feeling mostly unsatisfied and strangely wanting a lengthier movie.

Video Game Review: Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

Details: Released in 2004 for the Nintendo GameCube. I don’t think it’s been released for any subsequent console or on the virtual console so the only place to play it is on the GameCube. Played the game for around forty-two hours. More information can be found at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paper_Mario:_The_Thousand-Year_Door and http://www.metacritic.com/game/gamecube/paper-mario-the-thousand-year-door

Score: 8.2/10

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door is a surprisingly funny, charming game despite coming out over a decade ago. It is visually simple, but the writing and satire here is top notch.

Restaurant Review: Shun Won Chinese Restaurant

Details: 41-27 Main St, Flushing, NY 11355. Here an unclaimed Yelp site: https://www.yelp.com/biz/shun-won-chinese-restaurant-flushing

Shun Won is a very reasonably priced Cantonese restaurant with all your classic cheap Cantonese food, including some dim sum as well.

When I come here, I usually get something with Cantonese barbecue. Something like the roast pork noodles or soy chicken over rice. The congee is also pretty standard. Most dishes cost around ten dollars or less.

Overall, a great place to get cheap, decent quality Cantonese food. It is arguably one of the best places in Flushing to get Cantonese food.

Score: 7/10
