Final Fantasy IX (2000) review

Rated: 2 / 5* This was the one PS1 Final Fantasy game I hadn't played in my youth.  Or rather, I played a bit of it, but then got sidetracked by something else.  I'm one of those people where if I'm unable to complete a game within a certain number of days (maybe even a … Continue reading Final Fantasy IX (2000) review

Torment: Tides of Numenera review

Rated: 4 / 5 I've tried to get through a few RPGs in the past, and failed.  Final Fantasy VIII, Final Fantasy IX, Diablo, Diablo II, and Baldur's Gate.  Basically amounted to just losing the will to continue in those games.  It had to do with the monotony of combat, grinding, lack of interest in … Continue reading Torment: Tides of Numenera review

Christmas, its songs, and the Greatest Christmas Movie of all Time

What is the meaning of Christmas?  It's meaning has being altered (to put it lightly) over the centuries.  Initially, it meant the day Christ was born (even though it's highly likely he wasn't born on December 25).  The significance being to celebrate the birth of a man who would go on to make the world … Continue reading Christmas, its songs, and the Greatest Christmas Movie of all Time

Richard Jewell (2019) review

Rated: 3.5 / 5 "Jewell fits the profile of the lone bomber.  A frustrated white man who was a police wannabe who seeks to become a hero." If Steven Spielberg's 2018 film The Post is a message about the importance of the press and how they should never be suppressed from reporting the truth, then … Continue reading Richard Jewell (2019) review

Fear Effect 1 and 2 (2000 and 2001) PS1 review

So I've been thinking lately.  Surely the early console games that had 3D graphics had some decent games.  You know, in spite of not holding up as well as PS3 and X-Box 360 games do (the console generation of 2005-2013), which is when I believe 3D gaming graphics finally reached a stable state (just as … Continue reading Fear Effect 1 and 2 (2000 and 2001) PS1 review

Casper (1995) review

Rated: 3.5 / 5 What's it like to die? Like... being born, only backwards. I actually liked this mid-90s kid flick.  Not something you're going to hear me say too often, because aside from the animated Disney flicks, 9 times out of 10, 90s kid films sucked ass.  The 3 Ninja movies sucked ass (though … Continue reading Casper (1995) review

Hey Arnold! (1996-2017) series and movie review

Series: 3.5 / 5 The Jungle Movie: 2 / 5 So let me get this out of the way, I've already reviewed the first Arnold movie.  So I won't be covering that too heavily here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWviLPQ-snU The series itself, it's still good to this day.  Episodic, without much need to watch the show in any … Continue reading Hey Arnold!
