Keep Calm & Carrion

Playing as the bad guy has always been an interesting and appealing approach to gaming. Whether it’s obvious you’re the bad guy from the get go or a twist at the end that leaves your jaw on the ground (and there are a few amazing games that spring this on you in the final few moments of the game but I won’t...

Ghost of Tsushima *Spoiler Free Review*

When I was offered the chance to review Ghost of Tsushima, I sheepishly turned to a fellow gamer colleague and said “so…what can you tell me about this game?”. I didn’t follow the progress of the game’s creation, see any game footage or trailers prior to beginning. I went in blind, only knowing I was ...

Meh

Red Shoes and the Seven Dwarfs

Red Shoes and the Seven Dwarfs (Dwarves? Dwarfs? I’m not too sure) is one of those modern day fairy tale movies you really really REALLY want to love… but end up missing the mark completely.  With a rocky introduction to the public with some… very questionable… marketing, this film does its best ...

The Skywalker Legacy: Taking One Last Look Sir, At My Friends

Ever since I first saw Star Wars, somewhere between 1994 and 1996, it has been an intrinsic part of my DNA and so re-watching The Rise of Skywalker, and then the behind-the-scenes documentary and seeing the thought, passion, and hard work that went into it, and ultimately seeing it all come to a close, was ...

The Last of Us Part II *SPOILER FREE REVIEW*

When the game ended and the credits rolled, after clocking in at 30 hours of gameplay, my husband and I just sat there in silence for a long time trying to process what we had just experienced. First let me, without directly mentioning any, address the leaks and speculations floating around out there. They ...

Resistance

You might think you would want to just watch happy movies at a time like this. You may wish to surround yourself with laughter, celebrations and feasting with friends and family. But there is another way to put what you, and we, have all have been through, into perspective. And that is to know and to learn ...

Jumanji: The Next Blu-ray

If you haven’t seen Jumanji: The Next Level and want a good time, see it. I loved it. Not necessarily as good as the first, but it at least adds something new and they did it well. In fact, if you loved the first one, you might as well get the sequel on blu-ray because it is a BALL. The film is fun, l...

All aboard the Monster Train!

I’m going to be honest: I thought Monster Train wasn’t going to be very good. Weird trailer, and a silly name. “Monster Train” sounds like a useless toy one of those infomercials would be trying to sell during morning kids cartoons.  *energetic infomercial voice* Collect monsters and...

The Last of Us Part II – Early Impressions

So, I’ve been playing The Last of Us Part II solidly, every evening, for just over a week and I’m finally allowed to share some spoiler-free thoughts with you (on one designated preview part of the game). I absolutely can not wait to tell you about the game as a whole – golly gosh! Also, f...

I Want to Eat Your Pancreas

I want to eat your pancreas is a wonderous, reflective slice-of-life anime feature film, based on the award-winning novel of the same name. Mostly a character-driven affair with a clear, overarching plot thread: a girl living with a terminal illness – pancreatic cancer. Despite these unfortunate circumstanc...

Predator: Hunting Grounds

The first Predator game I ever played was on the original Nintendo (NES) in the mid 90’s. You played as the hero Dutch (Arnie – “Get to da choppa!”) and it was as much a weird movie tie-in to the 1987 film as one could expect from the console. For some reason, Dutch wore bright pink pants in thi...
