Zero Dark Thirty

Zero Dark Thirty

Wednesday, January 16, 2013 No Comments

I think the Academy was sorely mistaken in their decision not to nominate Kathryn Bigelow for Zero Dark Thirty. The execution of the film as well as the precision of the acting, led by the magnificent Jessica Chastain, was captivatingly impressive. The film itself reminded me a lot of Argo in terms of pacing. Belabored […]

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 […]

Dishonored

The style of Dishonored is very reminiscent of Bioshock. The general ambiance, and the cartoonish look to the characters and environment, gave off a comparable vibe.

My Most Anticipated Title of 2011: Multiplatform

Thursday, December 30, 2010 No Comments

Sadly, my most anticipated multiplatform title for 2011 does not span every platform available. It’s a high definition title that will include some very impressive graphics, as some of teaser promotional video (though it’s not actual gameplay) and screenshots have shown, so it won’t be coming to Wii. It was a very close fight, but […]

Alien Anthology (Blu-ray)

I’ve never seen any of the Alien movies, but upon receiving the 6-disc Alien Anthology, I was immediately struck by its impressive case design. After marveling at it, I sat down to watch the movies, which, astoundingly, include both the theatrical releases and special editions. Now then: Alien– Very impressive for being over 30 years […]
