The Interview Movie Review

A hilarious farce in the same vein as This is the End, the Interview is not a hard hitting political take down but rather a fun broad comedy that occasionally flirts with deeper substance and insight but is  mostly more about putting things in Seth Rogen’s butt. After a run in with an old college mate […]

Into the Woods Movie Review

A delightful and fun musical for the first two thirds, Into the Woods completely falls apart in a third act that is overly dark, overly long and overly depressing.

Alien Isolation Xbox One Review

Summary [8.0 out of 10] The answer to anyone who asked why we couldn’t just have a scary Alien game after Aliens Colonial Marines, Alien Isolation takes things back to the feel of the first movie with one Alien and very few resources on hand to deal with it. What it amounts to is a […]

The Evil Within Xbox One Review

Summary [8.0 out of 10] A promising start to a new potential franchise, The Evil Within gets back to the horror roots of survival horror while providing a mostly engaging story with strong game play and visuals.
