Gemini Man

VERDICT Depending on where you’re sitting, the admittedly-incredible “de-aging” tech used with Will Smith is either game changing or apocalyptic. That’s all there really is to talk about with this quagmire of a film. I’m sure there are worse ways to spend 2 hours than if you happen to catch it on streaming or a […]

Sorry to Bother You

VERDICT A scathing critique of capitalism and its monopoly over politics, culture, and even one’s sense of self, hidden inside a comedy about being a telemarketer. The sharp dive into the surreal will not appeal to everyone, but it remains a must-see. Buy the ticket. REVIEW More frequent readers will notice that this review does […]

Stranger Things 2

Verdict A satisfying return for the Duffer brothers and everyone’s favorite ‘80s crew. It doesn’t have quite the same punch, and plays it relatively safe. Nonetheless, it is still well worth the watch this Halloweek. Review The Good: Everything that was good from Season 1, but mostly Sean Astin. The acting and music continue to be […]

Clear Eyes, Cup Head, Can’t Lose (Cuphead Review)

Like many other residents of the internet, the trailer for a game called Cuphead at the 2014 E3 show, completely blindsided me. The vibrant colors, Betty Boop-esque animation, and ripping jazz soundtrack of this game contrasted so harshly against the gritty and visceral Bloodbornes and Metal Gear Solids premiering that year, that it seemed this […]

Spring Loaded (ARMS First Impressions)

Given my youthful, some might say babyfaced appearance, it would be easy to mistake me for being hip with all the new trends. However, my true understanding of internet/pop culture is shaky to say the least. Basically, I look at memes, fidget spinners, and dabbing the way my grandmother looks at any TV remote manufactured […]

One pressing question I had regarding the Guardians being under the spotlight of the new […]

Kong: Skull Island

Verdict: This is a fun film, plain and simple. Don’t think about it too much, just enjoy the ride. Wait for it to hit the cheap seats or go on a Tuesday. Synopsis: “A secret government organization mounts an expedition to Skull Island, an uncharted territory in the Pacific. Led by an explorer (John Goodman) […]

Run the Coins (Super Mario Run Review)

Nintendo is historically infamous for being a late adopter of technology when it comes to their games. For instance, home consoles with HD graphic support became mainstream in 2006 with the release of the Xbox 360 and PS3. Nintendo however, decided to focus more on innovation, with the Wii-mote and Nunchuck style of motion-oriented gaming, […]

Sing

Verdict: It’s fine but not great, like a cinematic ham sandwich. It has catchy songs, a big cast, and is pretty enough. Catch it at the cheap seats if you want something light and fun without having to think much. Like at all. Synopsis: “When a koala impresario (voiced by Matthew McConaughey) is in danger […]
