Coronavirus/Movie Reviews Update
With all this business with the coronavirus COVID-19 going on a lot of movies that were scheduled for release have been postponed or pushed back. A Quiet Place Part 2, postponed. Fast 9, pushed to next year. The new James Bond film, pushed back to this November. Live-action Mulan, postponed. The New Mutants, postponed again (man do I feel bad for that film) Even Antlers, a horror film that I was really looking forward to was postponed.
There's a reason why I've been avoiding trying talk about this pandemic is because we all need some kind of escapism. For me, going to the movies and writing my reviews is my form of escape from reality. We all need some form of escapism. It's perfectly naturally. But of course with the coronavirus pandemic happening, going out to public theaters may be a risk factor, especially since there was already a reported case of someone with the coronavirus inside my home county. Not only that but there may come a time where I will have to work from home due for whatever reason, whether it be illness related or as a precaution. So I guess that leads to a big question I'm sure a lot of you are wondering: Is the Harry Situation Reviews still happening? Am I still going to write reviews?
Well that's what I'm here to talk about. I have decided that yes, I will still write my reviews. In fact, my 300th review is still happening, and still in works. Obviously I won't be able to talk about any new movie releases for some time until we feel that this pandemic is under control. However this does give me some leeway to write and post reviews for stuff that I’ve been meaning to do for a while now but haven’t had the time due to other obligations or I just didn’t have right words to say. I mean Fallen Order. I played and beat that game and I definitely want to talk about it. Netflix's The Witcher, I definitely have some things to say about that. There's also some video games that I can talk about. Doom Eternal, that shit's hitting stores this Friday. I'm super pumped for that. Cannot wait to play it. So I'm definitely gonna write a review about that. I also downloaded a couple games for my Nintendo Switch, so maybe I'll write a review about those.
This also gives you guys an opportunity to give me some suggestions about what you want me to review, as long as I got some easy access to it, like Netflix, Amazon Prime, even Disney+. If you got something that you want me to check out fill free to comment here, comment in any of my reviews or posts, or shoot me a message anytime. Now I cannot guarantee that I'll answer everyone's suggestions but we'll see how this goes. This will probably go on at least until May 1st, when Black Widow hits theaters (if that hasn't been postponed yet). I hoping by then the pandemic craze will have decreased but you can never know.
Until then, please practice good health techniques. Wash your hands thoroughly. Stay home if you're sick. Listen to the doctors and scientists and not the media or politicians. I understand that a lot of you are pretty scared by this. I'd be lying if I said I'm not scared too. The fact that there is a pandemic happening right now and at any moment we could get infected, it is scary. But we cannot let this pandemic get to us. We cannot act ignorant and savagely when it comes to survival. Humanity has survived pandemic after pandemic before and chances are good that we'll survive the next one. Most importantly we cannot let this pandemic stop us from living our lives and having a good time. We just need to be smart. And if you need some sort of escapism, I can help you.
Be smart. Be healthy. Stay informed. Best of luck.
