George Lucas Makes Us So Mad!

Wednesday, February 22, 2012 No Comments

In this week’s video, L.E. and Nathan talk about the man deified by some, vilified by others; a man without whom we would have no lightsabers or Jedi. Of course, we would have no Jar Jar or re-re-remastered cuts, and probably no walkie talkies in ET either. Yep, we’re talking George Lucas. Click the link to watch!

This Means War

This Means War

Tuesday, February 21, 2012 No Comments

There’s nothing you should be expecting from This Means War. The story was your garden-variety action/comedy/romance, with primitive themes and logical nonsense aplenty. But, for some reason, I was able to look beneath that crummy outer layer, which was a thick one mind you, and just enjoy the humorous chemistry between the characters, and the […]

There were five timelines in Anonymous. Five! And though, in reality, only two were used heavily, the film kept throwing me back forth between these two epochs to the point that I became disoriented, and rapidly lost interest in the characters. Not that the film did a good job in creating that bond otherwise, but […]

Prepare to Go Megadeaf Thanks to Next Week’s Rock Band Music Store Update

Friday, February 17, 2012 No Comments

I’ve got Mustaine on the brain! Harmonix announced today that next week’s Rock Band Music Store update will feature the first track pack from thrash metal mavens Megadeth (it’s cool if I call them mavens, right?). The icons of heavy metal will be bringing a small selection of their major hits from the 90s and […]

What Do You Say to a Naked Lady?

Thursday, February 16, 2012 No Comments

Candid Camera personality from the mid 60’s, Allen Funt, takes a look at how people react to provocative or sexual situations, in the suitably titled, What Do You Say to a Naked Lady?, a film full of hidden cameras, interviews, and naked people. It’s informative, funny, and is a fascinating window into how people reacted […]

ZEN Studios Combines RPGs, Pinball

Thursday, February 16, 2012 No Comments

This week, ZEN Studios announced the release of a new title that combines the role playing and pinball genres into one, called Epic Quest. Officially speaking, this is a new table for the Pinball FX 2 and ZEN Pinball platforms, but the ZEN team prefers to think of it as a genre-blending title that makes […]

Ubisoft Hits the Playstation Vita Launch Hard, With Five Titles

Thursday, February 16, 2012 No Comments

There’s something to be said about a company throwing its weight behind a product, and I’m quite sure that Ubisoft’s lineup of launch titles for the Playstation Vita counts as one such declaration, essentially saying “This is a good product”. Alternatives to that statement would be “We think this is cool”, or, more importantly, “This […]

Rebecca

Rebecca (Blu-ray)

Wednesday, February 15, 2012 No Comments

Watching his films, we get but a glimpse into the inner workings of Alfred Hitchcock’s vast creative faculties. And Rebecca is but one example of his filmmaking prowess. This is not to denigrate any of the other folks responsible for the making of the film, as a movie is a collaborative effort, where each of […]

Chronicle

Chronicle

Tuesday, February 14, 2012 No Comments

I don’t think I’m alone when I say that I wish I could fly. It was a childhood fantasy that I would still love to see realized. Just imagine! And for that, Chronicle was enjoyable. It tickled that bone in me that wants supernatural abilities, that wants the power of flight. And though it wasn’t […]
