The Starving Games Review

November 24, 2018 // 0 Comments

It is a futile endeavor to review a movie directed/produced by Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the duo responsible for such “classics” as Epic Movie, Date Movie, Vampires Suck, Meet the Spartans, and the Scary Movie franchise. This movie is what it is. Nothing I say will discourage those who like this sort of thing to knock it off, [...]

High Fidelity Review

November 15, 2018 // 0 Comments

For many of my teenage years and into my twenties I was one of those dorky retro kids obsessed with old vinyl records and bands that, if my friends had heard of, they did not care about. I say that because when a film is made about a sub-culture, it is important to get that sub-culture right, and High Fidelity does just that, in a way that is [...]

As Above, So Below Review

November 13, 2018 // 0 Comments

What do you get when you take bits of the Blair Witch Project, Raiders of the Lost Ark, National Treasure, and Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey, cram them into a giant blender and hit “puree”? This movie; As Above, So Below. The main character here is a female Indiana Jones type searching for the mystical “Philosopher’s Stone” which after [...]

Chronus Arc is an old-school style JRPG from Hit-Point and KEMCO that first released on mobile devices all the way back in 2013.

So it’ll be [...]

Savages Review

November 7, 2018 // 0 Comments

Two beach bums, one with a military past, and both in an open three way relationship with a hot blonde named Ophelia, start a homegrown marijuana business that becomes very successful. Said business attracts the wrong kind of attention from a very powerful Mexican drug cartel. So, together with the aid of a dirty DEA agent played by John Travolta, [...]

Call of Cthulhu Review

November 2, 2018 // 0 Comments

Wayback in February 1928, the pulp magazine Weird Tales featured a short story from H.P. Lovecraft titled “The Call of Cthulhu.” In the 90 years since then, Cthulhu has been expanded on and the Cthulhu Mythos have transitioned to essentially every form of entertainment. In 1981, Chaosium released the first edition of the Call of [...]

Mad Max: Fury Road Review

October 31, 2018 // 2 Comments

I saw this movie in 3D with my wife, who liked it far less than I did, feeling the movie was long on chase scenes and short on story. I say that up front for a little context, but personally I loved that the entire movie is just one long adrenaline rush. The story was started on the run and kept running throughout. Theron’s character Furiosa has [...]

Pompeii Review

October 28, 2018 // 0 Comments

79 A.D was a very bad year for the city of Pompeii. One of the worst natural disasters of the ancient world occurred as a killer Volcano named Vesuvius erupted and wiped out thousands upon thousands of lives. So now I guess enough time has passed to attempt to turn that tragedy into a silly romantic popcorn movie. I’m game anyway. Too bad that [...]
