RoboCop (2014) Movie Review

Even with  story problems, poorly executed effects, lack of a compelling villain and lackluster action, the worst sin committed by the remake of RoboCop is that is very, very boring. In the year 2028, Omnicorp has robot peace keeping drones deployed in strife ridden areas of the world but the one market they cannot crack [...]

The Lego Movie Review

A multi-layered family comedy that works on several levels at once with some of the most consistently funny material I have ever seen wrapped in amazing animation, The Lego Movie is a solid hit out of the park.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (ABC) S1:E13 *SPOILERS*

Assassin’s Creed IV: The Black Flag (Xbox One) Review

Summary [10 out of 10] Much superior installment compared to its predecessor, improvements in most areas where Assassin’s Creed III failed and more of what worked best (collision detection, clipping, Naval Combat). The game is a high seas action rush that brought back a joy and interest in pirates that I haven’t recalled since being a [...]

Based on a graphic novel of the same name I, Frankenstein is an occasionally cool but ultimately enormously silly movie that squanders the small amount of potential it has in favor of CGI and nonsense. After Victor Frankenstein’s (Aden Young) death, his creation Adam (Aaron Eckhart) buries the body in the Frankenstein family plot and [...]

The Gentlemen Radio Episode 83: Gentlemen Can’t Talk

People group things by nature and sometimes when you have two awesome things like peanut butter and chocolate or peanut butter and jelly or peanut butter and anything at all, aside from anaphylaxis, you put them together and have a new thing that is even more awesome. It worked out pretty well for the people [...]

Philomena Movie Review

At turns funny, sad, heartwarming and sweet Philomena is beautiful film with the perfect pace and sensibility for a film that just as easily could have gone completely off the rails.
