Halo 1, 2, 3, and Reach (2001-2007, 2010) review

Introduction (skip this) For a long while, I've been wondering if I outgrew first person shooters. In all fairness, there's been a large gap between the games I played from my childhood, the last recent modern shooter, and today's shooters. Regarding most recent memory, the last ones I recall playing were Bioshock, Bioshock 3, Wolfenstein: … Continue reading Halo 1, 2, 3, and Reach (2001-2007, 2010) review

I was so tempted to write this review the moment after I watched it. But I didn't, for a couple reasons. 1.) I wanted to rewatch the original 1998 animated version (which I did). 2.) Prioritized a board game I'm … Continue reading Mulan (2020) review, and comparison to the 1998 animated version

Thoughts on Mein Kampf Chapter 2 (part 2)

Yeesh, over 3 months since I last visited this subject. Hate leaving loose ends (and occasionally dealing with symptoms). Better late than never. Last time when talking about how the bourgeois wants to avoid the lower classes at all costs, primarily out of finding the idea repellent that they could ever fall back down to … Continue reading Thoughts on Mein Kampf Chapter 2 (part 2)

The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999)

That is probably the biggest lie Mr. Ripley says during the entire movie. Every time he puts on an act or does an impersonation, it is always with the women. Whenever he is with the young men of this movie, for the most part, he is … Continue reading The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999)

Godzilla: Tokyo Clash (2020) board game review

Rated: 3.5 / 5 I used to own this other board game titled King of Tokyo, a game that abstracted kaiju fights by having monsters that were rip-offs of Godzilla and King Kong, the energizer bunny, among others (some of which, to their credit, were original). We all knew we were to imagine that these … Continue reading Godzilla: Tokyo Clash (2020) board game review
