Blockbuster in the theater, blockbuster at home. Shang-Chi & Kate

As theaters have started to re-open their doors to the public, I let out a sigh of relief; even if the best movies were to be released simultaneously on streaming and theaters, I would still be the person buying a ticket and an ice-cold bottle of water, waiting in line to get in the theater. […]

Twelve Minutes Spoiler Discussion

Complete Story spoilers, if you want to avoid them check out my spoiler-free review. If you’ve read my review for 12 Minutes, you’d understand that I have mixed feelings on the game; on the one hand, it is an interesting, thought-provoking, kind-of-unique game with great moments and ideas; on the other, it suffers from a […]

Twelve Minutes Review

I remember saying for Twelve Minutes for the first time back in 2015 when Giant Bomb released an early demo video with the game creator Luis Antonio; I, like most people, was super intrigued and wanted to see more. Fast forward four years and the game has resurfaced with Annapurna Interactive set to publish; skip […]

The Ascent review

As far as next generation console launches go, the ninth generation has been comparatively slow with only a few “next-gen” experiences released thus far. Being someone who got in from day one, you’d think that I would be disappointed by how slowly the justification comes for that price, however you’d be mistaken. Even with the […]

Blockbuster Duos: Reviews of Free Guy and Suicide Squad (2021)

My relationship with blockbuster movies has been pretty mixed, for the most part; while I enjoy a dumb, action movie from time to time, I also understand the difficulty of what it takes to craft something as gigantic as a blockbuster project. However, I simply absorb the experience presented to me and blockbusters usually feel […]

Pokemon Unite impressions

Pokemon Unite is a free-to-play MOBA take in the Pokemon franchise, developed and published by Tencent. The obvious prediction there would be that the game would be a monetization nightmare and, surprising absolutely no one, it is! But, after a couple of weeks with it and more than a handful of hours spent, I was […]

The 1 to 5 on movies: The Swarm

Lowcost horror This format is a shorter, more to the point, off-shot of the normal review/op-eds I normally do. A ranking will be given at the end from a scale that starts at (from the lowest to the highest): Bad – meh – fine – good – great. Anything not appropriate for these “scores” will […]

Godzilla Vs Kong review

I was really looking forward to this movie. Kong: Skull Island and Godzilla: King of monsters were two of the dumbest and most entertaining movies of their respective years, and I was ready for Godzilla Vs Kong to follow in those footsteps. It is a really dumb and very fun movie, but compared to the […]
