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 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 […]

Star Wars: The Complete Saga – The Circle is Now Complete

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.

Friday Night at the Movies // The Shrine

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 […]

Critical Review: Assassin’s Creed: Revelations

Another year, another Assassin’s Creed game. I’m not sure how I feel about Ubisoft cranking out a new game on a yearly basis. Part of me, the part that is in love with the plot and the characters in that universe, is ecstatic every time a new game is announced. The other, more rational part […]

Friday Night at the Movies // Conan: The Barbarian (2011)

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 […]

Mario Land 3D: Plumbers Put in Perspective

I have been a Mario fan my whole life. I clearly remember the first time I saw him scuttle across a TV screen when I was five, have been hooked ever since. I remember when Mario Bros. 3 was revealed to American audiences through the Fred Savage film, The Wizard. I remember seeing a picture […]

New Release Roundup: Assassins and Dragons and Ghost Rider, Oh My!

I don’t know how else to say this. There are too many goddamn video games out right now. Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim dropped on Friday. Yesterday, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and Saints Row: The Third all released. I genuinely don’t know what to do with myself. I’m seriously considering being that […]

Critical Review: Batman: Arkham City

As snow begins to softly drift from the sky around him, Batman surveys a run-down building from atop a gargoyle. His goal is to confront Penguin regarding the whereabouts of Mr. Freeze. The only thing stopping him are the eight men with machine guns watching the entrance to the Iceberg Lounge. He patiently waits for a guard […]

Fairy Tales: Primetime Edition

We all grew up watching and reading fairy tales. They have sparked the imagination of countless generations and are some of the foundations for all of today’s fantasy. It is hard to find a child who does not know Cinderella or Snow White. They are ingrained in our collective minds. There are two new adult […]
