Mary & Max

Thursday, March 25, 2010 No Comments

The claymation, the narration seemingly geared for a young audience, and the G rating made Mary & Max appear to be a movie for children, but it is not in the least. Most of the humor, themes and vernacular were aimed towards a mature viewership. The story, which tells of the long distance friendship that […]

Mario Strikers Charged

Wednesday, March 24, 2010 2 Comments

Mario Strikers Charged is the Wii iteration of Nintendo’s arcade style soccer franchise and it packs quite the punch. The gameplay is fast-paced, but easy to pick up, the graphics are simple, but suited to this style of game on Wii, and the power ups and take-downs are just plain brutal. The game offers a […]

The Men Who Stare At Goats

Wednesday, March 24, 2010 No Comments

Saying that The Men Who Stare At Goats is zany does not even come close to illustrating the wackiness exhibited in this off the wall farce. Though a good portion of the story was absurdity for the sake of absurdity, there was definitely a satirical tone as well, one that was aimed directly at the […]

It’s based on the true story of the Bielski brothers, who fled to the forests of Belorussia to hide from Nazi patrols and suddenly found themselves leaders of a community of refugee Jews. Regarding the retelling, much […]

A couple of weeks ago, when the release date for Green Day: Rock Band was announced, we only had one screenshot to post (there was an issue with links on the press server… that’s besides the point). We now have the game’s American Idiot gameplay trailer to show here on the site, so what better […]

The Bounty Hunter

The Bounty Hunter

Tuesday, March 23, 2010 No Comments

The Bounty Hunter tried to incorporate romance, comedy and crime solving into one movie but was mostly unsuccessful. The romance was silly, predictable and uninventive and the crime solving made no sense whatsoever. With regards to comedy, it was funnier than I expected. It wasn’t a comedic masterpiece by any measures, but it had its […]
