The Expendables Review

April 17, 2011 // 3 Comments

The Expendables is an easy movie to pick apart, if one were of a mind to do so, on several structural levels. However, this reviewer does not feel the need to do so. I for one like movies that aren’t ashamed of what they are, and also, movies that don’t pretend to be more than what they are either. The Expendables is a prime example of this [...]

Frogger Returns Review

April 16, 2011 // 2 Comments

Frogger Returns is a $5 dollar download available in the Wii Shop Channel, and if you’re storing it on your Wii system memory, it’ll take up 203 blocks. Is it worth $5 and 203 blocks of space? Yes, yes it is. Frogger Returns doesn’t rock the boat too much from the gameplay of the original. The goal is still the same, take the frog and avoid [...]

“Ever notice how you come across somebody once in a while that you shouldn’t have fucked with? That’s me.” – Clint Eastwood as Walt Kowalski Clint Eastwood is not just an actor, he is an American institution.

Public Enemies Review

On the hot and humid night of July 22nd, 1934, John Dillinger was sitting pretty watching a gangster flick at the Biograph theatre in Chicago, Illinois, enjoying what must have been an all too rare moment of relaxation. It would be the last such moment in his brief but fascinating life, and also the final film he would ever get to see, as when he [...]

While watching over the Green Mile, Edgecomb meets John Coffey (Michael Clarke Duncan), a gigantic African-American man that was convicted of raping and murdering twin sisters. Unlike most inmates, Coffey has a child-like innocence about [...]

Taken Review

“I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don’t have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that’ll be [...]

April 12, 2011 // 0 Comments

  WWE’s video game universe has returned to the world of arcade style fighting, and the end result is a game that puts every Smackdown vs. RAW to shame in terms of overall enjoyment and excitement. Sporting one of, if not the, best rosters in a WWE game, All Stars features 30 of WWE’s best (15 current Superstars and 15 Legends). Among [...]
