• ‘Jurassic World Dominion’ Review: Much Better Than ‘Fallen Kingdom’ And Chock-Full Of Surprises

    Jurassic World Dominion has a lot riding on it. At least for me, personally. Like pretty much every kid who grew up in the 90s, I was enamored with the original Jurassic Park. My sisters and I would quote the movie endlessly and repeatedly act out certain scenes. Trust me, we’ve shaken our fair share […]

  • Movie Review: ‘Dune’ Spices Things Up In Long-Awaited Reboot

    There’s a lot riding on 2021’s Dune film adaptation. Not only does it have to live up to the expectations of faithfully bringing Frank Herbert’s groundbreaking, genre-defining 1965 masterpiece of a novel to life, it also has to live up to the high expectations that inherently come along with being a film directed by Denis […]

  • Review: Has ‘Wonder Boy’ Stumbled With ‘Asha In Monster World’ Remake?

    Good old 2012. I remember the year fondly. It was a simpler time. Nowadays we have to endure the horror of seeing the world collapsing and all of our previously trusted institutions along with it before our very eyes, but back then we could only speculate about the apocalypse through vague interpretations of an ancient […]

  • Movie Review: Is ‘Mortal Kombat’ A Flawless Victory?

    Once upon a time it was a universal truth that, with little to no exceptions, movies based on video games were guaranteed to suck. And vice versa. Gradually, however, film adaptations of video game properties became at least watchable. Some might even say good. In recent years we’ve seen decent live-action films based on video […]

  • Movie Review: ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ Might Surprise You

    Hollywood seems to be creatively bankrupt as of late. The entire movie landscape primarily consists of remakes, reboots, and sequels – with nary an original idea in sight. Which wouldn’t be too bad if the films themselves had any integrity or passion felt in them, but most of them seem more like shameless phoned-in cash […]

  • Review: Is Gnosia Really Worth The Hype?

    Since its localization announcement in a Nintendo Direct at the end of last year, I’ve been pumped to play a somewhat obscure Switch port of an offbeat Japanese visual novel-esque puzzle thriller set in space. Or rather, a ” Sci-Fi Social Deduction RPG”, according to its description on Nintendo’s official website. The game is called […]

  • ‘Demon Slayer’ Movie Review: How Did ‘Mugen Train’ Dethrone ‘Spirited Away’?

    With over 100 million copies of the manga in circulation and an anime adaptation that has quickly become the highest-rated and most-watched series out of Japan in recent memory, Demon Slayer has objectively taken the world by storm – blowing past other series like My Hero Academia that were previously thought to be this generation’s […]

  • Review: Don’t Believe The Hype, ‘The Haunting Of Bly Manor’ Is As Lifeless As A Corpse

    When The Haunting of Hill House premiered on Netflix in 2018, I was one of many viewers shouting its praise from the rooftop. As a horror aficionado, I appreciated how it merged the genre with a thoughtful approach to family drama and social commentary, whilst still never losing sight of its horror roots. Created, written, […]

  • Review: ‘Crash Bandicoot 4’ Fails To Move The Series Forward

    The Crash Bandicoot series seems like it’s been warped into hyperdrive as of late. Not only did the original trilogy receive a massive makeover that was so successful it revived fellow platforming series Spyro, but it even led to somewhat of a renaissance of remakes including Crash’s own Team Racing game. Finally, with his remakes […]

  • Review: ‘Kirby Fighters 2’ Is A Smash Bros. Clone, But Is That A Bad Thing?

    Everyone’s favorite pink puff, Kirby, is back on the Nintendo Switch! But if you’re expecting a proper follow-up to 2018’s Kirby Star Allies, you’ll need to temper your expectations. Kirby Fighters 2 is instead a follow-up to the 3DS downloadable title, Kirby Fighters Deluxe, which itself was an expansion on a mini-game from the 3DS […]
