Critical Hits:Excellently produced action sequences where Godzilla proves why he’s King of the Monsters. The re-imagining of Godzilla’s origin not as an accidental spawn of human error, but as a primordial beast is interesting and provides a reason for him to fight the MUTO. The MUTO creature designs are amazing, and three monsters are always better […]
Critical Hits: Excellent adventure book with lots of awesome encounters and story points for the pregenerated characters. Quick and easy rulebook that’s easy to understand for new players. Critical Misses: Just not enough included with the set compared to the 4th edition box. Adventure doesn’t tie into the Tyranny of Dragons campaign products. […]
Real Steel is one of those movies that comes out and you just say “Really Hollywood? Wolverine is going to train a robot boxer?”. Then you dismiss it as typical Hollywood garbage and go about your day. Unless you happen to write for a nerdy website and need to do a movie review and feel like tearing something apart because, well, let’s be honest, bad reviews are fun.
Priest was released last year, supposedly based on a South Korean comic by the same name. That’s all they have in common, apparently. I had wanted to see the movie because I had heard good things about the comic and had always meant to pick them up but never got around to it. So I […]
I’ve been waiting to review this movie since I saw the trailer. My love of Guillermo del Toro may color this movie as a lot better than it actually is, but I will not apologize for that. Directed by Troy Nixey from a script written by del Toro this is a modern retelling of the […]
This week’s movie review is the controversial film by Lucky Mckee The Woman. I first heard about this film during the whole Sundance uproar. Unless you don’t feel like following the link, here’s some guy saying it should be confiscated and not shown to anyone. Apparently a woman passed out during it, and this guy […]
Cowboys & Aliens. It’s a movie, about cowboys, and it has aliens in it. There, that’s really all you need to know. If you are expecting ANYTHING other than that, then, well, maybe you should pick a different movie. This movie is exactly as advertised, you get Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford being badass cowboys, […]
Even though the last decade hasn’t been especially kind to the franchise, nothing George Lucas will do can completely destroy the good will that the original trilogy earned with me. I’m not going to sit here and cry about how the prequels, or even the special edition versions of the originals, are “raping my childhood”. I love Star Wars.
This week’s movie review is the 2010 horror flick The Shrine. It’s currently available on Netflix Instant Watch which is where I found it. It was in my list of “recommended” films because of my interest in The Last Exorcist and a few other horror movies. Here’s the trailer. You now know more than I […]
Releasing next week on DVD and Blu-Ray is the 2011 big budget Conan movie. I had heard a lot of mixed reviews from people, some calling it the worst movie ever, some saying that it was awesome. I think it all comes down to what you’re expecting from a Conan movie. Being a Robert E […]
