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 […]

Portal 2

Portal 2

Thursday, May 12, 2011 No Comments

As excited as I was at the news that Portal 2 was going to be over 4 times longer than its predecessor, I was also slightly fear ridden as well. You see, what made the first Portal so great was how short and, well, sweet it was, and this one being much longer, I was […]

Forza Motorsport 3

Thursday, August 19, 2010 4 Comments

If you’ve ever had the desire to drive powerful cars, but don’t have access to a garage full of them, Forza Motorsport 3 will more than suffice. Alongside its amazing graphics, sizeable collection of cars and sharp realism, it offers players the ability to choose how realistic (or difficult) they want their experience to be. […]

Moon

The two questions I had after watching Moon were, why wasn’t it nominated for best picture and why wasn’t Sam Rockwell up for best actor? The story was original and thought provoking, and Sam Rockwell, one of the only actors in the movie, was amazing. Now, if you want generic theatrical appeal (explosions, teenage angst, […]

BIOSHOCK 2 XBOX 360 BOX ART

Bioshock 2

Tuesday, February 23, 2010 No Comments

Bioshock 2, the sequel to one of my favorite video games, was amazing even though it wasn’t all that different from the first. The only real distinctions I found were the upgraded hacking system, some new baddies, and several new weapons.  Other than that, everything else was pretty much identical to Bioshock, but that’s not […]

District 9

Thursday, February 11, 2010 1 Comment

I have to say; District 9 came as a total shock to me for it did not play by the standard rules that I have come to expect from mainstream Hollywood. There are no distinguishable actors, it is not shiny (for lack of a better term) and there is no clear protagonist and antagonist. Though […]
