Across the Universe

Fairly arresting both visually and aurally, but ultimately tedious, boring, and self indulgent. More »

Rambo

February 1st, 2008 by Ghost

A glorious return to 80ā€™s style action in form and execution, John J. Rambo is a battleship sized sledge hammer, a blunt instrument of bloody mayhem and destruction. And that ā€œJā€ in his name? It stands for Justice. More »

Apocalypto

Apocalypto

Mel Gibson may sound like a bit of a nutter these days, but he apparently still knows how to create an entertaining flick. While his Passion of the Christ subject matter was surely not to everyone’s tastes, it was a well-made film. Apocalypto is his latest effort, and despite a few flaws, it is quite a ride. More »

Spoiler Review: The Invisible

“The Invisible” has the honor of being one of the more illogical films I’ve seen recently. Once you find out the double meaning of the title you’ll be slitting your own wrists just like the target demographic of this overly blue crapfest. More »

Batman

January 24th, 2008 by Alice

Figured I’d doodle today to take a break from the serious piece I’m doing. Had a fat Crayola marker, a sheet of paper and a chair arm to rest the paper on. Decided to just doodle a Batman, but not a conventional Batman. Just a “chibi” style Bruce with a big head, and tiny body. Thought it would be humorous to leave his cape adult sized though. The actual picture ended up being much bigger than this, but I cropped it when I scanned it. The picture actually filled up the whole page of the 8.5×11″ sheet, but a lot of it was just filler buildings, sky and the bat signal, so I cropped all of the unnecessary stuff out to keep the focus on the tiny vigilante.

Beetle Adventure Racing

Now, before I begin, let me just say this: I’m no big fan of racing games. I’m not a big fan of the redesign of the Volkswagen Beetle, either. Yet for some inexplicable reason, when the two are combined, I can’t stay away from it. This game boats innovative courses with tons of freedom, solid multiplayer, and plenty of interesting extras. And you just can’t deny the power of the VW Bug. More »

National Treasure

If you’ve been looking for a movie to fill the void while waiting for the next Indiana Jones installment (which is now closer than ever) you could do a lot worse than National Treasure. Of course that all depends on how willing you are to turn your brain off for two hours and just enjoy the ride. This isn’t a thinking man’s (or woman’s) action movie. More »

Here is a musical that definitely isn’t for everyone. Based on the Broadway play of the same name, it tells the story of a London barber living a seemingly idyllic life with his beautiful wife and daughter. Unfortunately for him, a corrupt judge is vying for his wife’s affections, and he gets falsely convicted of a crime and sent to Australia. Upon his return to London, 15 years later, he changes his name to Sweeney Todd, re-opens his barber shop, and starts planning his revenge. More »

Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, The

My first introduction to the world of Zelda was via Zelda II: The Adventure of Link many moons ago which I had asked my father to purchase for me. At the time, what attracted me the most about the game was its shiny gold plastic cartridge. Suffice it to say, the rubbish gameplay turned me off to all things Hyrule for a good long while. Fast forward to present day, when I had my father purchase the latest Zelda adventure for my birthday, and thus the circle of life is complete. So how did Link’s trip to the DS turn out? More »
