Robot & Frank

Friday, March 29, 2013 No Comments

An aging semi-ex-con named Frank, played by Frank Langella, is forced to live under the supervision of a health care robot. That’s the premise of Robot & Frank (a very accurate title). It’s a fun concept and an almost equally as fun film. It isn’t amazing, as it suffers from a mild case of flatness […]

Fragger 2

Fragger

Tuesday, March 26, 2013 No Comments

With 12 sets of 30 levels (if my math is right, that’s roughly 425.6 trillion levels (note: I’m awful at math)), Fragger is loaded with grenade lobbing fun. Ranging from simple to remarkably difficult puzzles, the game isn’t just addictive, but also offers a fair bit of challenge as well. And like most games of […]

There’s something lacking about Arbitrage that didn’t induce the desired thrilling atmosphere it purportedly contained. Maybe it was that the police were highly incompetent. I mean, Gere left a trail of evidence behind him, and they still had a hard time convicting him? And what about the business deal which I felt was never fully […]
