Review: Milanoir

In the mid-1960s, the rise of western films produced and directed by Italian auteurs gave birth to a new subgenre of film, the Spaghetti Western. Notable for overdramatizing conflicts, unique audio and visual editing, and eschewing or outri...

Players have agency, and they're not afraid to use it

Review: Mutant Football League

All this talk about “sportsball” on Twitter during the Super Bowl sort of eluded me. Yes, I get it; gamers and geek culture are not generally associated with being sports fans. I can’t even properly say I am one myself. I ...

Review: Blade of the Immortal

Takashi Miike is, in the purest sense of the word, prolific. He has dedicated himself to churning out film after film, year in and year out, often with wildly differing levels of success. Sure, it’s easy to look at fantastic works lik...

Review: Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

Do you remember back in 2013, when franchise reboot Wolfenstein: The New Order was first announced? Everyone was furious about the title's marketing campaign, with many gamers taking genuine issue with the gleeful abandon in which the game'...

The Last of Us Part II gets a super violent teaser
