Chat Roulette: A Live Review of ChatRoulette.Com

chatroulette-review-1I am just reading in the entertainment section of the newspaper about this website called ChatRoulette.com.

It´s a website where everybody is LIVE on webcams.  No doctored photos or photos of people from 10 years before.  It is all apparently live, pimples and all.

So, I´m gonna pop on the computer and see what all the fuss is about — this is my official ChatRoulette review.

The Movie 21, Variable Change, and Monty Hall

variable-change-movie-21The movie 21 introduced many to the concept of variable change. But what is variable change? Stay tuned for a lively discussion!

During the movie 21 (read my 21 movie review here), we are introduced to a seemingly simple example of probability often referred to by three different names: Variable change, the Monty Hall Problem, and/or conditional probability.  The scenario is this:

A Star is Born Review: Did Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper Make a Great Movie?

star-is-born-reviewIn a Star is Born, we have the actor Bradley Cooper playing a singer and the singer Lady Gaga acting.  Did this role reversal work?  Were they able to pull off a great movie?  Read on to find out!

First, a disclaimer:  I’m not impartial — I am a huge fan of both Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper.  I’ve always respected Lady Gaga’s independent spirit and enjoyed her music.  And, Bradley Cooper  has an equally interesting backstory.    Did you know he speaks fluent French and wanted to be Ninja?

And then, I watched the preview for the movie, and BOOM – there’s Dave Chappelle acting.  A singer, an actor, a comedian?  All my favorites!  What’s not to love?  I’m so in.

But, viewer beware, high expectations are often the death knell for a movie.  Even if it’s good, you’re disappointed as you expected great.

I went to see A Star is Born the first day I could.

So what did I think?

He’s Just Not That Into You (Review): Does the Movie Speak the Truth? | A Couple By Couple Reality Check

hes-just-not-that-into-you-reviewA marginal movie can become a really good movie if you enjoy the topic.

This was the case when I watched He’s Just Not That Into You.  I thoroughly enjoyed the movie because the topic is compelling:  Do women realize when a guy is just not into them?  The movie is more than that as well…it’s about relationships between men and women.
