The Human Centipede (First Sequence)

Tuesday, August 31, 2010 No Comments

I’ve never been a fan of horror movies, but once in a while a film comes along that breaks enough boundaries to warrant a viewing. The Human Centipede (First Sequence) is one of those films. Written and directed by Dutchman Tom Six, the film blends the most terrifying horror with small bits of comedic wit. […]

Tuesday, August 31, 2010 1 Comment

One of the few animated films from the mid to late eighties that I haven’t seen, The Black Cauldron, is coming back to DVD on September 14th for the film’s 25th anniversary. For those of you, like me, who haven’t seen this movie, it’s about Taran, a pig keeper’s apprentice, who goes on a journey […]

Pandorum

Pandorum is such an amazing game. It’s a sci-fi horror a la Dead Space, but you get to play as Ben Foster! How cool is that? Well, it would be cool, but unfortunately this is a movie. I really wish this were a game, because as a movie it wasn’t all that great. First, the […]

Thoughts on Inception

Thoughts on Inception

Monday, August 30, 2010 1 Comment

Watching Inception is like visiting Times Square. The first time you go there you are awed by the grandeur, by the lights, and by the immense, remarkable buildings. At the same time, the people in Times Square trying to sell you comedy show tickets are rather irritating. Now, the more you frequent Times Square, the […]

Halo: Reach Drops Jaws with Feature Overload at X’10

Friday, August 27, 2010 2 Comments

With its brand new campaign, weapons, loadouts, expansive competitive and cooperative multiplayer features, a new version of the Forge map editor, ridiculous customization options, gameplay in outer space and more, Halo: Reach is an absolutely gargantuan title. I had the chance to speak with Bungie Studios’ Joe Tung, Reach‘s executive producer, about all of the […]

35 Shots of Rum

Friday, August 27, 2010 No Comments

The opening sequence to 35 Shots of Rum gave off a vibe that made me think that I was in for a heartwarming experience lush with dramatic intrigue. Halfway through the movie I realized how wrong I was in my assessment. The story of pretty much nothing, had no MacGuffin or character development. In fact, […]

Microsoft Demos Windows Phone 7 at X’10

Thursday, August 26, 2010 5 Comments

While at X’10 last week, I took the time to speak with Microsoft’s Greg Milligan about the new Windows Phone 7 operating system for mobile phones. This might not sound like relates to gaming or movies, but since mobile phones have essentially become portable media players and gaming devices (iPhone anyone?), that’s all changed. Windows […]

Fable 3 tickles, titillates at X’10

Thursday, August 26, 2010 1 Comment

I really adored Fable 2. The combat was very satisfying, it had some nice comedy bits, and it was just an all around pleasurable experience. In fact, just writing about it is making me want to go back and play through it again. Before I do that though, let me tell you about the third […]
