    Movie Hype of the Week: “RoboCop”

    Man, I love me some cheesy 90s action movies. And “RoboCop” is certainly no exception. The ultraviolent, catchpahrase- spewing machine that is “RoboCop” has not only entertained me constantly, but also made into my top 10 movie list simply due to its sheer absurdity. And thus, imagine my joy when I saw the first...

    Mini Movie Review: “47 Ronin”

    As I walked into the theater to see “47 Ronin,” I was expecting an epic assortment of samurai and Keanu Reeves. But instead of a glorious ballet of katanas, dragons and Reeves’ facial hair, I was instead met with one of the most startlingly boring movies of 2013 (and 2014, I guess), filled not...

    Movie Review: “The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug”

    It’s here! The face-meltingly awesome sequel to the first “Hobbit” movie is here and, oh my god, I love it. “Desolation” is a huge improvement over the first movie, which was mostly exposition. But “Desolation” is pretty much nonstop excitement; it hardly ever slows down or becomes boring. It’s as if the first movie was...

    Game Of The Week: Sir, You Are Being Hunted!

    I like scary video games, which is weird, because I get scared really easily. So when I picked up “Sir, You Are Being Hunted,” a self-described open world horror game,  I expected dark corridors, monsters and all sorts of other shenanigans. Turns out all of that isn’t nessecary, because the majority of...

    Game Review: Project Zomboid

    At the risk of sounding like an old fogie, I must ask: what happened to zombie games? Games like “Left 4 Dead” are mind-numbingly unrealistic. Characters find shotguns in some soccer mom’s car, and miniguns in some guy’s dishwasher, with nothing to fear. You’re immune to the zombie virus. Well, fear no more, because “Project Zomboid”...
