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

White Dog (1982) and Homicide (1991) dual review, and the issue of race

There will be spoilers for both films. https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-MKWPq55b1uo/UMYwHdYOiMI/AAAAAAAAN80/b8bTb7-PaLk/s1600/poster+whitedog+2.jpg Rated: 3.5 / 5 I have to admit, the 80s to the early 90s continue to impress me. The most interesting of their films tend to have a lot of grey in their morals and themes, rather than making a pure black and white picture (assuming we're … Continue reading White Dog (1982) and Homicide (1991) dual review, and the issue of race

The International (2009) review

https://sisterrose.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/the-international-movie-poster-12.jpg Rated: 4 / 5 "The truth means responsibility!""Exactly! Which is why everyone dreads it!" Films like these are how I know cinema didn't truly start dying until at least 2012. Sure there were the signs of decay with the unofficial banning (official blacklisting) of The Path to 9/11, but that was Disney being censorious … Continue reading The International (2009) review

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)

Half-Drunk review of The Most Fucked Up Kid Flick Ever Made

So I'm reasonably blasted right now.  Pretty sure I'd send my liver into a seizure if I drank anymore booze. ... Oh, who am I kidding?  I could probably gulp down a few more shots and just be fucking dandy.  I just re-experienced a fucked up kid flick from my childhood.  Back in the early … Continue reading Half-Drunk review of The Most Fucked Up Kid Flick Ever Made

The Long Walk Home (1991)

Rated: 1.5 / 5 So I made this review on IMDB, which is currently getting processed.  On the off-chance they're as bitchy as I've heard, and they terminate both it and my short-lived account, I'm putting it here.  On the chance that the review stays and my account doesn't get terminated, I'm keeping it up … Continue reading The Long Walk Home (1991)

Dreamscape (1984) and Inception (2010) dual review

DREAMSCAPE Rated: 3 / 5 INCEPTION Rated: 3.5 / 5 I've been having a hard time finding my mojo with spontaneously writing up film reviews, even for those I've recently seen.  I think it has something to do with this cocksucking Wuhan Chinese kung flu COVID (can operate vividly in death; I don't know, I'm … Continue reading Dreamscape (1984) and Inception (2010) dual review

Terminator: Genisys (2015) review

Older review from my deleted Letterboxd account, all the way back from 2015. Not that I needed to state that this review contains spoilers because of the shit those cocksucking trailers pulled, but this review contains spoilers. I could have watched fucking Inside Out. I had the gift certificate, I knew it was going to … Continue reading Terminator: Genisys (2015) review

X-COM: UFO Defense (1994), XCOM: Enemy Unknown (2012) dual review

UFO Defense Rated: 5 / 5 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fhPDc1gbP5k When it comes to the original X-COM: UFO Defense game, I am terrified of playing it ever again.  Not because the game is too tense for me (though it does get tense as hell).  It's because when I finally sat down one morning at about 9am or so, … Continue reading X-COM: UFO Defense (1994), XCOM: Enemy Unknown (2012) dual review

Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines (2004) review, and mod notes

Rated: 4 / 5 This is not a simple game to get into.  What I mean by that is, there's no way to play this game without modding it.  It would be too buggy otherwise.  So your experiences may differ depending on which version you get a hold of (and how you mod it).  You … Continue reading Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines (2004) review, and mod notes
