X-Box 360 is a Tool of Satan Used to Bring Torment to God’s Children

In 2009, I finally had the money to afford a flat screen tv and an X-Box 360. This was a happy time in my life and I look back on it fondly. I spent many, many hours, saving the galaxy as various Commander Sheppard’s on the then exclusive game series Mass Effect. As you may know, the series is based on freedom of choice in the morality of your character. It’s a Choice your Own Adventure type style of branching storytelling, that the player crafts over many hours of gameplay. I have logged in over 100 + hours of time on the Mass Effect trilogy.

All of that was ruined this past Sunday afternoon. Continue reading

Inferno (1980) LIVE BLOGGING EVENT OF THE CENTURY!!!! OMG OMG OMG

Ok peeps, today’s review is Dario Argento’s Inferno.  It’s the second of his Three Mothers Trilogy, proceeded by his masterwork Suspiria.  So this review is going to be a little bit different.  Instead of just writing it flat out off the top of my head like I normally do, I’m going to type my thoughts as I watch the film.  If you like, you can follow along yourself with my thoughts with the live film, and it will be like I’m in your house, watching the film with you (if you are like me and don’t own a copy, it’s currently streaming on Netflix) and drinking out of your glasses.

Chaos (2005)

At least that is Angelica on the poster.

Not that this really matters, but this is an old review I wrote for another site a few years ago upon the DVD’s release that I’m just now porting over.

Is this the most brutal movie ever made? The most blatant rip-off ever? A modern day horror masterpiece? I hope to examine these claims in what I would like to call THE MOST BRUTAL MOVIE REVIEW EVER. With my other reviews (with the exception of Terror Toons it has been my intention to have others seek the films out as they have some merit behind them. The exact opposite is true of this review.

Book Review: F. Paul Wilson’s “The Keep”

This is a book that I had heard a bit about over the years on a couple message boards and it piqued my interest, so when I saw it on sale at Half-Priced Books, I instantly picked it up. I am pleased to report to you that my purchase was well worth it. This review will be a basic plot synopsis with no spoilers, so if you’ve yet to read the book, feel free to read on.

Max Payne 3

So evidently the people at Rockstar games are huge Tony Scott fans. This may or may not be a bad thing depending on your perspective.  Like when my sister rented Man on Fire, she thought something was wrong with the DVD due to the sped up shots and different film stocks being used. It’s a kick ass movie, and Denzel does at great job at playing Greasy Bear, but if you saw it and found it’s style to be jarring, you’ll probably feel the same about this game. If you can move past it though, there is a lot to love here. Continue reading
