Thursday, August 26, 2010 No Comments

There was plenty to see and play at Microsoft’s X’10 holiday preview event in Toronto last week, but the game I was most looking forward to playing was, you guessed it, Rock Band 3. The chance to try out the game’s new features and controllers was too good to pass up, so after getting the […]

Date Night

Thursday, August 26, 2010 No Comments

A married couple who grow sick of their monotonous routine decide to spice up their date night, and things go horribly wrong.

Young Thor

Playstation Network Minis are an intriguing specimen. On one hand, you get a full game, ready for play on the Playstation 3 or PSP for only $4.99 and very little hard drive space. On the other hand, there are games like Young Thor, the newest effort from Frima Games. Young Thor is disastrous, and fails […]

Repo Men

The awfully inaccurate opening monologue about Schrödinger’s cat painted a pretty clear picture of what I was getting into. Repo Men, the story about a future where you can finance organs, but if you don’t keep up your monthly fee, they repossess them, sounds likes it would make a great mindless action film. Instead, it […]

$5 A Day

Review Christopher Walken, a lackadaisical grifter, convinces his jaded son to go on a road trip to a holistic healer in Mexico to cure his brain tumor. That’s the gist of $5 A Day, a pleasant, but ultimately trivial and forgettable movie. It’s like elevator music with Christopher Walken’s hilarious voice cueing in every few […]
