Pay me! Total War Warhammer 2 was just put up for pre-order on steam. Normally I would tell you all not to pre-order on principle, but this one is special. Total War Warhammer, along with Destiny, are 1 year release games. No longer is simply pre-ordering equivalent to paying for... Continue reading

Getting this out of the way, she is distractingly attractive DC finally made a good movie, and somehow managed to make what is probably the best super hero movie of the year so far. I hate the DC movies, like really, passionately, hate the DC cinematic universe. I think superman... Continue reading

These guys can still go fuck themselves When I wrote my first piece ( I had only just gotten my first breath of the wild that is Zelda. Now 2 months later, with 95 hours of gameplay, I have finally completed the main story. I defeated the Calamity Ganon, saved... Continue reading

Guardians of the Galaxy 2: 2 Galaxy, 2 Guarded is Marvel’s most recent experiment in whether or not a film can be carried entirely on character chemistry and charisma. The answer is basically yes. Guardians is another in a long chain of excellent Marvel movies (please disregard Thor 2, and... Continue reading

This might just be the dumbest Fast and Furious movie to date, which is no small feat. I enjoyed it, it was fun, there are explosions, cars, and the Rock (especially the Rock), but oh so dumb. Basically this is exactly what you want out of a Fast and Furious... Continue reading

The following what I call an airplane movie review, because I am not very creative. It means I watched this movie on a flight (usually because I didn’t want to pay for it, nor could be bothered to find it online) and came away with some general feelings. It also... Continue reading

I, for one, really liked the new look Power Rangers began as it ended, with the feeling that something masturbatory had just happened. I liked it, but right off the bat I want to say this isn’t, and shouldn’t have been, a good movie. It would be impossible to make... Continue reading

First off it is very pretty Where to begin with this game? I got this game on March 8th, and I’ve barely put it down. I’m a month behind on these reviews, and my sleep is all messed up because the damn thing is portable. Dorkly basically nailed it here:... Continue reading

Alright, I’ve taken far too long to get this post out and for that I apologize, it’s been a hectic time and I now have a backlog. To the end of remediating that, I‘m doubling John Wick 2 and Arrival, with the focus on John Wick. Arrival is a beautiful... Continue reading

Every month Microsoft gives away 2 free Xbox One games, and 1 free Xbox 360 game, to all Gold members, which includes me. I’ve decided to review one or both of these games each month, both because they are free, and cause it will actually make me play the damn... Continue reading

A good old fashioned musical; singing and dancing and all that jazz. I watched it a week ago now (I’m a terrible procrastinator) and I honestly don’t know whether or not I loved this movie or merely found it passable. I swing back and forth primarily based on whether or... Continue reading

Happy Holidays everyone, I’ve flown to see my family and thus wanted to do a short airplane movie post. I used to do these on Facebook every holiday, basically I never sleep on planes, I just watch movies and play games the whole way. When my family lived in Dubai... Continue reading

This weekend I had 2 very close friends recommend me 2 different movies: Fantastic Beasts and where to find them, sold as a film I would overall enjoy but with plenty of ammunition for me to tear it apart. Arrival, sold as just generally one of the best movies/sci fi... Continue reading

(I love these guys) I’m writing a follow up post to Pokémon Sun partially because when I wrote my last review I was only half way through the game, and I wanted to revisit it as I have now completed it. The other reason is that I really want to... Continue reading

I want to preface all of this by saying I’m less than a third through the game (as far as I know), I’ve been taking my time and being completion-ist about it. My point is that this review is incomplete and is just my first impressions and thoughts, I will... Continue reading

Once again Marvel brings to life a beloved character in an excellent, fun, adaptation. Doctor Strange is a great movie, not the best Marvel movie, but not nearly the worst and that whole range is pretty high quality. I also recommend seeing it IMAX, it’s got that whole inception thing... Continue reading

World War 1, the war to end all wars, which directly preceded a second world war, and is widely considered one of the worst conflicts in history, playable now in the latest instalment in the Battlefield series. I don’t think I’ve ever played a game that was both so much... Continue reading

Ben Affleck is autistic Batman. That does refer specifically to the film the Accountant, though I do like the stand alone phrase. The Accountant is loosely about a high functioning autistic man who does accounting for dangerous people, and who happens to also be a highly trained soldier/assassin due to... Continue reading

Hardcore Henry is what happens when a film maker plays too many first person shooters. It is the first entirely first person action movie, and it is pretty spectacular. They stuck a Go Pro on a stuntman, made up a plot device for him to be mute, and let him... Continue reading

Luke Cage, the newest in Netflix’s very high quality line up of Marvel shows, joining Daredevil and Jessica Jones. Fans of Jessica Jones will recognize Luke Cage as he makes an appearance, and fans of Daredevil will recognize nurse Clair Temple. It’s important to remember that all of these shows...

In light of the new DLC coming out I decided to pick up Destiny, a game I haven’t really touched since a month after its release over two years ago (I write this paragraph as a 12 gigabit update downloads to my system). This game was the reason I picked... Continue reading

The Magnificent Seven is a magnificent film – a diverse and talented cast enacting a classic story, the classic western story. Seven men take on the role of defending a small village against an evil land baron and his personal army. It is as straightforward as plots come, and one... Continue reading

Ice station by Matthew Riley was conceived under a simple premise. The conventional view (for action movies at least) is that movies are the less civilized, more spectacle oriented medium compared to literature, the more proper, narrative oriented stories. Matthew Reilly thinks that is bullshit, that novels can definitely be... Continue reading
