Wreck-It Ralph

Monday, November 12, 2012 No Comments

Nostalgic, funny, well-written, well-acted, graphically impressive. Can you name a film, in this day and age, that fit all of those bills and more? For me the answer is “Wreck-It Ralph”.

Duke Nukem Forever

Tuesday, August 30, 2011 1 Comment

I want to say that playing Duke Nukem Forever has left me conflicted – appeased by a hit of excessively violent, campy nostalgia, but disappointed by graphical inferiority, unnecessarily slow loading times and its refusal to even try innovating.

Alice In Wonderland

Wednesday, March 10, 2010 2 Comments

Alice In Wonderland, the sequel to the 1951 cartoon, really upset me. I was hoping for either a live action remake of the cartoon or a legitimate sequel, but got neither. The first half hour did have me smiling in nostalgia, but that wasn’t enough to connect it to its earlier iteration, as it lacked […]
