Review: Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

So let’s talk about alchemy, the magical art of turning one thing into another, or usually, crap into gold. For Potter fanboys, Fantastic Beasts is another welcome view into Rowling’s still magical mind. That’s me, Potter ...

Review: Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu & Eevee

I don't remember exactly what compelled me to rush out and buy Pokémon Red before the craze began, but I vividly recall the day I went to Toys"R"Us after school and picked it up. I got to Mt. Moon in one sitting and promptl...

Review: Instant Family

I honestly got stuck with Instantly Family to review. Sometimes as EIC you gotta take a bullet for the team and let someone else review the big Harry Potter film (review coming later) or whatever. I was all set to take the sappy, melodramat...

Review: Widows

A fusion of stark brutality, underhand crimes and complex systems of political and personal power, Widows is far more just than an awards-season thriller, but a sharp and forceful indictment of corruption on every level of society...

Review: Battlefield V

Battlefield V isn't an across-the-board step up from Battlefield 1, but it nails the essentials. It's not just a good Battlefield game, it's a great one. For those folks who wrote DICE off early on, that might come as a surprise. For alpha ...

Review: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - Season 13

After a decade of airing, it takes a very special combination of acting, writing and comedic timing to keep a sitcom going. For most of these shows, there seems to be a specific season you can point to where the quality went on a downwar...

Review: Save me Mr Tako: Tasukete Tako-San

Save me Mr Tako is modeled after the catalog of a big, old, battery-sucking brick called the Game Boy. Everything about it is an homage to that long-gone era in gaming right down to the default green colored background. As someone...

Review: Hitman 2

Hitman really got its groove back in 2016 despite the initial uproar against its episodic format. Amazingly it actually stuck to its schedule (a rarity) and gave us all six main maps (with bonuses) throughout the year: a virtue in this...

Review: Tetris Effect

How do you modernize an icon like Tetris? Simple: You leave the mechanics alone! Tetris Effect is the same perfect puzzling we know and love, but so much care has gone into enhancing every other facet of the experience. It's Tetris by way o...

Review: Overlord

For the longest time, I didn't think that Overlord would release. Not because it was in production hell or anything like that, but because it was a part of J. J. Abrams Cloverfield universe and those movies can be announced years in advance...

Review: The Grinch

Believe it or not, prior to my screening I wasn't paying that much attention to Illumination's The Grinch, but from what I did see I thought the film was going to try something a little new with the character and focus on how he became...

Review: The Girl in the Spider's Web

Lisbeth Salander should not be a superheroine. While the character is resourceful and strong, physically, mentally, and morally, The Girl in the Spider's Web turned her into some sort of action movie secret agent-type. As satisfying as...

Review: Leisure Suit Larry - Wet Dreams Don't Dry

If you’ve ever played a point-and-click adventure game and thought to yourself, “This is pretty good, but it could do with a few more penis jokes”, you’re in luck. Germany-based dev team Crazy Bunch have taken on the...

Review: Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum Session!

It's hard being the drummer. Not only do you generally sit at the back of the stage, avoiding the spotlight and hidden behind a mass of metal, but you are, essentially, the key to the whole performance remaining tight. A guitarist can blow ...

Review: Resonance of Fate 4K/HD Edition

For the most part, Japanese role-playing games are like video game comfort food. For those of us that enjoy them, they're a known quantity and rarely stray away from the flagpole franchises that we're all familiar with like Dragon...

Review: Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum 'n' Fun (Switch)

Rhythm games are baked into my DNA. I get that not everyone wants to jump around on a plastic mat, bang a drum, or strum a guitar, but at some point or another, my musical background kicks in and I hit that zone -- the one where you can see...

Review: The Hex

The Hex is Daniel Mullins’ follow-up to the critically acclaimed Pony Island, a twisted meta tale about ponies, arcade games, and the soul. His first game played on expectations in a way that was genuinely surprising and creative. It ...

Review: The Quiet Man

When I first witnessed the reveal for The Quiet Man I called it "bizarre." An innocuous enough comment for sure, but it made it onto Wikipedia. It's official! It turns out bizarre was an understatement.

Review: NBA 2K Playgrounds 2

Review: Reigns: Game of Thrones

Despite being on the most proficient properties on television, video game developers have had a difficult time producing a Game of Thrones title that's up to snuff with the HBO series. Telltale tried, Cyanide tried, Warner Bros. tried,...

Review: Mid90s

I have very distinct memories of my twelve years attending an all-boys school in the Philadelphia suburban area and though it's a radically different scenario than what is presented in Jonah Hill's directorial debut Mid90s, I couldn't ...

Review: Luigi's Mansion (3DS)

I'd go far as saying the GameCube is the best cube-shaped electronic device with a handlebar of all time. With it came the launch title that would put Luigi back into the spotlight once more after nearly a decade since Mario is Missing. Fin...

Review: The Other Side of the Wind

Orson Welles’ final film, The Other Side of the Wind, was shot from 1970-1976, but it wasn’t fully assembled until this year. The film released by Netflix today is an imperfect salvage job. Welles only finished editing about 40-...

Review: Bohemian Rhapsody

I think I need to stop doing reviews of biopics for people I love and revere because I go in with too high of expectations for the movie to cover everything about the person and make it an enjoyable filmgoing experience, which is inherently...
