When I was first read an article describing this movie I thought it was interesting. It felt like a fresh take on a old idea which is the new style these days. We got a female Mowgli having a drink with Hansel and Gretel who kills witches and they trade stakes for crossbows with Pinocchio the vampire killer and he travels with Peter Pan as child soldiers in WW2. …Continue

Resident Evil was once considered the daddy of Survival horror and become the crown jewel of Capcom, right next to Megaman and street fighter. It might not have aged well, trading its spooky ambiance for the open air of an FPS but its still kicking. Even if Hollywood has made a successful series of movies, quality in question, Capcom has made their own set…Continue

Alphas refers to a group of people that have special skills bordering on the preternatural, like superpowers but more grounded. By grounded I mean each ability seen on the show is possible to have as they are based on pre-existing conditions albeit exaggerated.
No waking up one day realizing you look like a blue chicken.
The show centers on this group…Continue

Now this movie is a perfect example of what low brow Sci-FI can be. Low Brow Sci-Fi was a term I coined when hearing this description of what SCI-FI is. One writer described it as " A world just like ours with one new thing" and thats completely true in this case. Even thought this world has a more advanced version of the internet that is literally the center on all life on…Continue

Napoleon Dynamite was this weird movie that somehow clicked with a ton of people, finding fans in all walks of life from the average Joe to cultured film aficionado. It was the cult film and then some which means that the decision to make it into a cartoon seems logical.
I did not see the original film yet so I'm…Continue

A problem with growing up today is that your generation will be always known as the reboot generation. Because the higher ups in entertainment are basically taking any IP from the old days and bringing it back to cash in on the old audience and make a new one. Those can be anything from the Green Hornet which appeared in the 1930's to Buffy the vampire slayer which…Continue
Interestingly enough, I got into Tekken while watching two dudes at my anime club play Tekken 6 and saw the live action movie in May. It was Bad Fighting Game movie time till the end of the semester. I'm pretty sure we had nothing better to do than watch all of Hollywood's video game failures and make fun of them. Ehh, it was a slow news week.

Most people think being cool is going against the trends and being unique which is partially true. You do need to have a little confidence in yourself to sell the cool factor. If you have to worry about being cool and put effort into it, than you…Continue
