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 […]

The Impossible

The Impossible

Friday, January 4, 2013 No Comments

The powerful tone of The Impossible was set excellently. And throughout the film, the atmosphere was consistently heart-wrenching with a dash of hope (mind you, with a story about the aftermath of a tsunami, causing the tear ducts to well up was not a difficult feat). Furthermore, the acting was great, though I wish Ewan […]

Uncharted: Golden Abyss

Wednesday, January 2, 2013 No Comments

Aside from LittleBigPlanet (played momentarily at the 2012 Playstation Holiday Preview Event), I can’t think of a better game with which to have started my Playstation Vita ownership experience than Uncharted: Golden Abyss. I might have trouble coming up with enough synonyms to describe how impressed I was by this game. It’s not just a […]

Far Cry 3 rocks Tattoo Rock Parlour

The introduction to Far Cry 3 is one of the best opening scenes I have ever seen in a video game. The characters are rich, the graphics are pristine, it’s funny, it’s thrilling, and it’s highly captivating. And getting to experience it in a room set up like a screening, just made it feel that […]

The Manchurian Candidate (1962) (Blu-ray)

Wednesday, May 18, 2011 No Comments

I’ve never seen the remake of The Manchurian Candidate, and I’m not sure if I want to, for after seeing the original I don’t know if there is any way the remake could be better, let alone come close to as good. The movie, based on a novel of the same name, was positively brilliant. […]

Animal Kingdom

Animal Kingdom, the story of a boy who, after his mother dies, moves in with his Grandmother and uncles who are criminals, had a fairly captivating story, but there were a few things about this movie that I didn’t appreciate. First and foremost, it didn’t do a very good job of explaining the characters and […]

Thelma & Louise 20th anniversary edition (Blu-ray)

Friday, February 11, 2011 No Comments

A weekend getaway turns sour when Sarandon shoots a guy who was attempting to rape Davis. The two, now on the run, slowly regress into a life of crime in order to keep from being arrested. For that, Thelma & Louise was enjoyable, and somewhat captivating, for it’s interesting to see what people will do […]

Frost/Nixon

Thursday, February 25, 2010 2 Comments

Never have I been so captivated by a series of interviews like the ones portrayed in Frost/Nixon. If you are worried that you do not know any of the details surrounding Nixon and the Watergate scandals, don’t fret for the movie does a great job at briefly explicating the controversy.  However, though it was a […]
