Colossal

Unemployed and alcoholic Gloria (ANNE HATHAWAY) gets thrown out of boyfriend Tim’s apartment after one too many times of late night partying. In a haze, she returns to her s...

Styx: Shards of Darkness

When it comes to a stealth game, Cyanide Studios has put together a combination of elements that from the get-go feels surprisingly intuitive and believable. In this follow-up from the first Styx game you play a smart-mouthed goblin assassin who has a few tricks up his sleeve when it comes to getting what h...

The Fate of the Furious

I enjoyed this movie. Mind you, I am a Fast and the Furious fan.  I haven’t missed a single movie from the franchise. Although I am not a car guru, I appreciate great car races and action (I have a dad and a younger brother that are car junkies). Being the 8th one in the series, they had to add something bi...

Miss Hokusai

Set in 1824 Edo (now known as Tokyo), a much accomplished artist of the time works tirelessly in his house-atelier. He is as short-tempered and sarcastic as he is brilliant, with no passion for money or meaningless pastimes like drinking. His name is Kutsushika Hokusai and decades later his work would come ...

The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and The Silk Road Ensemble

Don’t be put off. This isn’t just a film for musicians (although everything about it would probably suggest otherwise). In this documentary, iconic cellist Yo-Yo Ma puts together a gregarious ensemble of musicians gathered from the dusty corners of the globe to explore what it means to make musi...

The Great Wall

Come on -Come on now! None of you thought this was gonna be good, right? You just want to know how bad it is… Well, it’s bad. Where on the terrible scale does ‘The Great Wall’, fall? For me the type of bad I categorize this movie into is ‘Bewilderingly Bad”. You can only hope when you go and see a genuinely...

You’re probably wondering why you’d spend your free time doing anything else other than gaming. Okay, even if your Steam library is already full of games that you purchased for $3 and never played, here are some daring new ventures that may have you putting that controller aside for just that bi...

Fences

Fences is one of those films that makes you feel really intellectual and cultured for going to see, but also wondering whether you really enjoyed it. Based on the Pulitzer Prize winning play by the same name, Fences is a character-driven drama about an African-American father and his family in 1950’s Pittsb...

Patriots Day

It was either good or very OK. For a historical drama, pretty solid. Patriots Day is a retelling of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing and the hunt for the two brothers who committed it. I went with a friend and he mentioned he felt a bit weird in that he didn’t want to be entertained or he felt like it would...

Rocketbirds 2: Evolution

Despite innuendos in the trailer about male chickens and how much harder they could be the second time around, I was relieved to find that Rocketbirds 2 followed the similar innocent style that I’d enjoyed in Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken. Rocketbirds 2 is a return to the classic side-scrolling plat...
