Apple Arcade - Samurai Jack (2020) [/] Based on the Adult Swim cartoon. You are a samurai time traveling to different places fighting bad guys. It's a dual-joystick over-the-shoulder POV: one stick controls the camera and the other controls movement with buttons for jump, dash, fast attack, power attack. Collect money and upgrade your abilities. Much like Beyond a Steel Sky this game is a bit disorienting and not for me.

Movie - Becky (2020) [/] Violent thriller. Rebellious teen Becky (Lulu Wilson) and is visiting the family cabin with her father and soon to be step-mother and little step-brother. A group of four escaped inmates led by Dominick (Kevin James) arrives because Dominick hid a key in the cabin which Becky found once. To get Becky to give him the key Dominick kills her father, which only makes her mad for revenge... Small budget girl-becomes-murder-bot film which has some hilariously extra-gory death scenes.

Movie - Hoosiers (1986) [+] I watched Hoosiers 7 years ago and thought it was mid. On re-watching it now I think it's a pretty good movie. Gene Hackman is great as a disgraced former college basketball coach now coaching a small high school team but still has his do-it-my-way abrasive style. The basketball sequences are not too bad and fairly exciting drama. Good ending.

Food - Dreyer's Slow Churned Butter Pecan Light Ice Cream [-] Maybe because I got it on sale but this flavor is not great. Rather sugary though lots of ice creams are like that. Pecans are mushy which maybe that's how they turn out in ice cream. Overall I regret this purchase and should have stuck with Tillamook.
