Game Review: Cthulhu Saves the World

Game Review: Cthulhu Saves the World

Do you remember the days of yore? Popping a cartridge into a console and… Popping it out to blow the contacts clean? But after that, I’m sure you have some wonderful sunlit memory of hearing wonderful 8-bit music fill your ears, listening as you read tales of knights and heroes who selflessly saved the world in all their blocky, pixelated glory… Cthulhu Saves the World isn’t one of these games. Rather, it pokes good fun at these games all while honoring them and their random battles, square little villages full of square little people, and of course by making... Read On

Piranha 3DD

Movie Review: Piranha 3DD

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: if you are not one with the wonderfully wacky world of the “Piranha” franchise, you are most likely a fuddy duddy… and nobody likes a fuddy duddy. “P3DD” is more a parody of the remake and its excesses… namely boobs and blood (of which there is plenty of both on display here). It’s 80 minutes of pure silliness crammed full of fantastic cameos (some carryovers from the first) and fish bursting out of places they have no right to be in the first place. If it wasn’t safe to call director John... Read On

Movie Review: Men In Black 3

Movie Review: Men In Black 3

When a sequel comes out so long after it’s predecessors it can tend to have a lot going against it. The biggest thing is that they tend to rely on the same formula from before. Sometimes it works and sometimes it goes completely wrong. Thankfully after ten years, Men in Black 3 didn’t fall into that trap. It still manages to keep the same humor that we love from the series while also injecting some more character development between it’s characters that keeps it fresh and worth the trip to the theater. It’s been ten years since last we saw... Read On

Dark Shadows

Movie Review: Dark Shadows

As soon as the lights went up in the theater my friend turned to me and said “that was terrible.” In reality, there are many, many, many worse films than “Dark Shadows”. I should know. I own quite a few of them. “Manos: The Hands of Fate” anyone? For what it is, the latest Tim Burton/Johnny Depp collaboration is entertaining enough, just kind of draggy in parts. There is just enough humor of the quirky variety (again this is a Burton/Depp collaboration) to keep things moving along… There just isn’t as much in the way of comedy as the trailers... Read On

Movie Review: Killers (2010)

Movie Review: Killers (2010)

You won’t really know what to expect during the first few minutes of this movie.  It’s kind of hard to tell if it’s going to be romantic, funny, or full of action. But it later turns into all of the above. It starts when Jennifer  “Jen” Kornfeldt  (Katherine Heigl) goes on a vacation with her parents to help her get over a recent breakup that has her completely up in the air about where her life is going.  However vacation doesn’t seem to be  helping much due to her extremely overprotective and rich father Mr. Kornfeldt (Tom Selleck) who...

Movie Review: Jack and Jill

Adam Sandler with or without the Happy Madison crew has been in some of my favorite movies from Wedding Singer to Spanglish, Jack and Jill is not in that category. Adam Sandler played both Jack and Jill, Jack is a family man with a good but stressful career and Jill is an obnoxious child like twin sister who is beyond lost after their mother passes. Jill comes to stay in California with Jack and his family but unknown to Jack it is for an indefinite amount of time. While watching the movie you can feel the strain between the bother sister...

Movie Review: Horrible Bosses

An outstanding comedy that is directed by Seth Gordon who has directed episodes of some great TV stuff including Modern Family, The Office, Community, and Parks and Recreation. This is a story that a lot of us can to relate to, me included! It’s about 3 friends who are so fed up with their respective bosses that over drinks one night, each complaining about their problems at work,  they hatch the idea of solving their problems by killing their bosses.  Now first off, in no way to I advocate murder AT ALL, but haven’t we all had a boss that drove you to at least “think” about...
