Wii Sports Resort

Friday, February 26, 2010 3 Comments

Like the Wii Sports pack that comes with every Wii console, Wii Sports Resort is a great introduction to playing with a new piece of gaming technology, specifically the new Wii MotionPlus accessory, which makes the Wii Remote’s motion accuracy 1:1, in real time. The only difference this time around is that it’s actually a […]

Taking Woodstock

Taking Woodstock

Friday, February 26, 2010 No Comments

Though at some points I was mildly entertained, Taking Woodstock was not very good at all. For one thing, it was very inconsistent. The obstacles that befell the main character dropped in and out of importance at sporadic intervals. The worst part was watching how the top actors of the film (Liev Schreiber and Emile […]

Brothers in Arms: Hell’s Highway

Thursday, February 25, 2010 No Comments

Brothers In Arms: Hell’s Highway is the kind of WWII first-person shooter I can really sink my teeth into. The game throws you into the story full force, and the gameplay features, especially the squad control and cover features, create an immersive experience that will have you coming back for more. There are quite a […]

Frost/Nixon

Thursday, February 25, 2010 2 Comments

Never have I been so captivated by a series of interviews like the ones portrayed in Frost/Nixon. If you are worried that you do not know any of the details surrounding Nixon and the Watergate scandals, don’t fret for the movie does a great job at briefly explicating the controversy.  However, though it was a […]

District 9

District 9 is one of the best science fiction films released in years. I went in expecting to see a science fiction conspiracy theory story, in which a government is secretly turning its citizens into “aliens” for experimentation, but was quite pleasantly surprised. The film has a far better, deeper and more meaningful story, and […]

500 Days of Summer

Wednesday, February 24, 2010 1 Comment

500 Days of Summer is not as much a romantic comedy as it is a romantic’s comedy. As in, if you happen to be a romantic (preferably a hopeless one), then you will enjoy this film with great relish. If you are not, this is still a film that you should not miss. A film […]
