Savages

Savages

Tuesday, April 23, 2013 1 Comment

Rife with gore, Savages definitely appeals to a violence leaning audience. The story, following two independent drug dealers who get into hot water with a drug cartel, isn’t all that unique. Sure, the love triangle (with the ever so sexy Blake Lively) had a slightly different spin than the triangulation we’re used to in movies, […]

Jurassic Park: An IMAX 3D Experience

Monday, April 8, 2013 No Comments

It’s been years since I last watched Jurassic Park, and, frankly, I’m thankful for that, because I’m having trouble coming up with the proper word to describe Jurassic Park: An IMAX 3D Experience. I’m just not sure whether “epic” fits the bill appropriately, or if “monumental” says it better. Seeing an already great film for […]

This is 40 Capture

This is 40

Sunday, April 7, 2013 No Comments

Maybe it’s just me, but Judd Apatow threw way too much realism into This is 40. It was like the potential outcome of your life staring you down and saying “Hey! Hey there. See what you’ve got to look forward to?” Considering how well put together it was, excluding its story’s disjointed feeling, and a […]

Bioshock Infinite

Bioshock Infinite

Friday, April 5, 2013 No Comments

Yep, Bioshock Infinite is incredible. Everything from the story, gameplay, graphics and soundscape was just top notch. In terms of plot, it sets itself up in a very similar fashion to the original Bioshock game, but instead of an underwater world, this one blasts you off you into this enormous and breathtaking sky city. Why […]

Killing Them Softly

Killing Them Softly

Monday, April 1, 2013 No Comments

Flowing with artistic sequences and boring dialogical exchanges, Killing Them Softly had the rhythm of a limping turtle. Then forty minutes into the film James Gandolfini shows up and word diarrheas for almost ten minutes about something completely unrelated the to the events in the film. What the heck is that? If it’s not progressing […]

Oz the Great and Powerful Lazy Poster

Oz the Great and Powerful

Monday, April 1, 2013 No Comments

There go two hours of my life. I might have been able to overlook the purposely-included overacting, gross overuse of obviously green-screened 3D effects, and the barebones black and white, good vs. evil plotline in Oz the Great and Powerful, if not for the fact that they ran throughout the entirety of the film! Granted, […]

Robot and Frank

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 […]

Arbitrage

Arbitrage

Wednesday, March 20, 2013 No Comments

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 […]

Metal Gear Rising Revengeance Cover

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

Wednesday, March 20, 2013 No Comments

Fast. Fierce. Fun. Yes, those are definitely the right adjectives for describing the gameplay in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Sending its regular stealth and espionage gameplay right out the window (or at least hanging out of it by a short thread), Konami turned to Platinum Games to give the long-running franchise a Vanquish-esque makeover (will […]
