Pokemon X is awesome. If you disagree then you are disagreeable. You like that logic? You better or else Pokemon X and I are gonna beat you up.
….Which probably means I’ll like it. Check out the trailer below if weird is your thing.
Recently I received a copy of Elysium The Art of the Film to review. I really dug into it and when I saw the actual movie was almost a little sad, because the movie didn’t quite live up to the conceptual ideas presented in the book. That said, if you really liked the movie, then you are going to absolutely love the art book.
I went and saw Simon Pegg and Nick Frost’s conclusion to their trilogy. While not as hilarious as the first two, it is a carefully crafted tale, except for…..
Kick-Ass 2 had some great action scenes, some funny dialogue, and overall I thought it was…..
District 9 was amazing. Can we all just agree on that? Neill Blomkamp hit the scene hard with that movie and so did Sharlto Copley as Wickum. It brought back the missing ingredient to science fiction. It brought back a message. It wrapped this message in a universe so fully fleshed out that one couldn’t help but to be swept away in it. It captured our imaginations and gave us one of the best modern finales to date. Expectations for Elysium are high to say the least.
The Conjuring had a lot to live up to for me to even consider it half as good as Insidious. I was expecting the unforgiving soundtrack, unexpected scare set ups, and interesting camera angles. I wasn’t expecting a pretty compelling and fun story though.
Combining the loveable elements from the first Luigi’s Mansion with the addictive vibe of a point and click adventure makes this sequel a large step up from the original.
Strider strider strider. Strider, strider. Strider: Strider the Stridening. Strider Van Striddles.
I liked Pacific Rim. It promised me giant robot vs. giant monster fights and that is what I got. Could it have been more than that? Sure. But it wasn’t. […]
A quick trip down memory lane with my Sega Dreamcast
I’d like to share what seems to me to be a very tortured artist who perfectly captures the inertia of catapulting oneself through harsh memories mixed with vague nothings that we see from our peripheral vision.
This means I have HBO now, which gives me access to HBO Go, which gives me access to Game of Thrones Season 3, which gives me access to sleepless nights, which gives me access to strange dreams of Tyrion telling me the purpose of life. Or.. some of those.
The Last of Us is a very easy game for me to review. Words are hardly needed. My review is as follows…..
As a young lad I used to hang out at my grandmother’s very large, very creepy house and play video games with my older, cooler cousins. Mortal Kombat, Suikoden, and Doom. Back then I would sit around starry-eyed and listen as they talked about the “next-gen” of video-games. I would ask stupid questions like, “Can I throw my sword into the ceiling, climb up on it, wait for an enemy to come around the corner and then drop on them?”. They would chuckle and say something along the lines of, “No, not yet.”
You can tell the actors have aged a few years, but the show also includes this time gap as part of its overall story. George Michael is now almost done with college, Michael has built a failing housing community, Gob has… uh… been Gob, Tobias is finally called on his homoerotic tendencies, etc, etc. Once you get over how strange it is too finally see new Arrested Development episodes I think you are in for a treat. The humor is still intact and it feels that the show has a direction it is aiming for, although I’m not 100% exactly what it is yet.
As I sit here in my “There Is Always Money In The Banana Stand” shirt, watching a 24 hour marathon of Arrested Devlopment marathon on IFC, I can’t help but think, “AHHHHHHHHH YESSSSSSSSSS NEW SEASONNNNNNNNNNNN!”.
I really wish I still had a PS3 just to play The Last of Us. This trailer is a couple of weeks old now, which makes it a fossil in internet time, but it still deserves a look from those of you who haven’t seen it. I really like the concepts that Naughty Dog is putting into this series. Having beaten the entire Jak and Daxter series and the first two Uncharted games it’s easy to trust them with smart, fun, and engaging games.
I pop the disc in and a large update is immediately required. I have heard that this update touched up the graphics a bit, fixed a slew of bugs, and made the AI more aggressive. I begin playing on Ultimate Badass difficulty. My first impression is that the graphics are akin to a first generation title (meaning it looks like it’s about 6 years old), but that they aren’t terrible. The first chunk of the game is actually very compelling, giving a good atmosphere that caught me with a couple of well-timed jump scares.
Joyce screamed as the monster-dog sank its teeth into Ted’s throat and began shaking him back and forth, as if he were nothing but a toy. Ted’s eyes widened with fear and pain,but although his mouth gaped wide, no sound emerged. An instant later Joyce understood why, as thick blood geysered upward. It ran down the sides of Ted’s mouth and turned his white hair crimson before soaking into the ground beneath.
Tonight I embark upon a quest to play a game that critics have panned as, “an awful game” by Kotaku, “unfinished” by IGN, and “get away from this bitch” by Destructoid.
IGN got the scoop on Bethesda and Shinji Mikami’s new survival horror game that promises to be “true” survival horror. We shall see…. No gameplay is featured in the debut trailer, but the bloody four-armed woman looks promising.
It wasn’t until Cosmopolis that I really appreciated who Robert Patterson seems to be. Considered “beautiful” by many young woman and paid out the ass for his Twilight films, he has been propelled to the top of the world extremely fast at such a young age. This creates a sense of isolation among his peers that distances him and his emotions and this is the perfect reason he was the perfect choice for Cosmopolis.
We/I/You often hear view points, many of them differing. One I feel we can all agree on is that many people feel books as a medium promote intellectualism in a more precise fashion than film/television/music (I will explain later why I include music with the visual mediums). Some people say that this is because books have a larger amount of material to present while film is restricted to a specific run time, forcing the exclusion of often inane, but colorful, details. These details create a unique palette that we all digest differently which paints a canvas of thought that each of us perceive in our own way.
Like Oz’s balloon this movie has lofty goals, but crash lands far short of reaching them.
