It’s been a while, ladies and gentlemen. Grab a seat, take a sip of wine, and relax as we dive into a mystery. It all begins on a stormy night- Hmm? You don’t understand what’s happening?

Clue (1985) is a very unique film, probably the only movie known for being the only film based off a board game that’s actually quite entertaining for what it is.

Storytelling aka my love letter to Star Wars

So, I decided to catch up on One Piece, one of my most favorite anime of all time. It’s not for everyone, that’s for sure. The art style, extremely long list of episodes to catch up on (currently at episode 770 as of this written article), and it being one of the few ‘mainstream anime’ can turn anyone off. But I can say, in my opinion, that it has some of the best writing because there’s so much love and care given to the characters.
