Django Unchained (Movie) Review 1

Django Unchained (2012) Review

Leave it to Quentin Tarantino to not only turn the disgusting legacy of slavery into a ludicrously entertaining/empowering Spaghetti Western romp, but to also release it on Christmas day. The filmmaker is nothing if not ballsy and while he can be an easy whipping boy for directorial excess, he’s also just as talented as he thinks he is.

The Worst of 2012

The end of the year provides a good opportunity to look back at how videogames have progressed or faltered over the last twelve months. Next week we’ll enter the New Year on a more positive note with a list of happy, inspiring events, trends and games, but, for now I’m starting off with my least favourite parts of 2012 because, well, it’s always nice to get the bad news first, isn’t it?

Game of the Year 2012 - 2012-12-21 19:14:06

Game of the Year 2012

2012 is almost over and we failed to be hit by an asteroid, catastrophic alignment of stars or massive epidemic of natural disasters. Instead what we got was some pretty decent comics and games, as well as the debut of Wii U to mark the start of a new console generation. As we see this year out, it’s time to look back at what has gone on, and recognize excellence when it has happened. While everyone at CGM has had their fair share of entertainment products that failed to live up to their goal, there were always other works that reminded us of why we love comics and games so much.
