Critical Look: Godzilla (2014)

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 Look: Dungeons and Dragons 5E Starter Set

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.   […]

Critical Review: Swamp Thing and Animal Man

This week’s comic book review is a two for one deal. I was going to do them separately but after issue 4 of each of them it’s impossible to do that. I never read Animal Man in the past, it was always on that “Yeah maybe I’ll get around to it” list, the same with […]

Friday Night at the Movies // Cowboys & Aliens

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, […]
