XCOM 2 (2016) review (w/ expansion)

Rated: 3. 5 / 5 Now this is more like it.  Is it as good as the original X-COM from 1994?  Hell no, nothing is.  But it's definitely a better game than the previous attempt from 2012.  Especially with the War of the Chosen expansion. What improvements does this make compared to the last one?  … Continue reading XCOM 2 (2016) review (w/ expansion)

Mission Impossible: Fallout (2018) review, and a bonus movie.

Rated: 3.5 / 5 This franchise.  1st film should be a case study for how a director can take a mediocre script and turn it into a solid action/thriller.  2nd film is, eh, I don't remember it entirely, it was ridiculous (though it did utilize the who face-mask thing that's been used in a good … Continue reading Mission Impossible: Fallout (2018) review, and a bonus movie.

Obduction review

Rated: 4/5 I helped fund the kickstarter campaign, and I'm late to the party in reviewing it. I wanted to make a gameplay video first, showing my runthrough, but apparently it's never that simple. I used the Nvidia Geforce Experience Shadowplay Recorder. It tends to split the clips up into 15-20 minute increments, which didn't … Continue reading Obduction review

Hacksaw Ridge, Arrival, double feature review.

I've been drained of energy lately. The election has me all depressed. It's not who won that has me depressed, it's seeing all the reactions to who won that's got me depressed. Every single goddamn talk show is spewing bitchiness, bitterness, and hatred over the winner. People are rioting in the streets. Not that many … Continue reading Hacksaw Ridge, Arrival, double feature review.

Team America, and a rant about the post-election.

Rated: 4/5 "See, there's three kinds of people: dicks, pussies, and assholes. Pussies think everyone can get along, and dicks just want to fuck all the time without thinking it through. But then you got your assholes, Chuck. And all the assholes want us to shit all over everything! So, pussies may get mad at … Continue reading Team America, and a rant about the post-election.

Halloween (1978) Review

Rated: 3/5 Sorry, no new releases this week (wanted to watch and review The Accountant, but circumstances kept me either occupied or at home). So I'll review this old classic, while making a brief comparison to the Rob Zombie remake. I wish I had you all alone. Just the two of us. So first question. … Continue reading Halloween (1978) Review

Shin Godzilla (Resurgence) Review

Source (and no there aren't any EVAs in this movie) Rating: 3/5 I knew there was something wrong with Godzilla's frikkin face when I first saw the trailer. And now I've figured it out.   Source He's a fuckface, which any hardcore Godzilla fan knows. First of all, his face is fucked up, as if … Continue reading Shin Godzilla (Resurgence) Review

Deepwater Horizon Review

Rated: 3/5 I don't have anything off the top of my head, so I'll just type and babble and ramble and see what comes of it. The movie is a disaster film that isn't as good as Dante's Peak, but not as bad as Volcano or San Andreas (yeah, I didn't care for the latter, … Continue reading Deepwater Horizon Review
