Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition (PS4) Review - Street Fighter V, For Real This Time 4

Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition (PS4) Review – Street Fighter V, For Real This Time

When Street Fighter V was released a few years ago the reception was understandably mixed. The fighting mechanics were rock solid. Obviously. This is Street Fighter that we’re talking about. The problem was that everything else around it felt like a shell of a full game that was meant to be completed through DLC greed. […]
How Liam Neeson Became Your Dad’s Favourite Action Hero 1

How Liam Neeson Became Your Dad’s Favourite Action Hero

This week the growling, six-foot-four-inch rogue that is Liam Neeson returns to screens in The Commuter to do what he does best. These days, that means beating the crap out of bad guys in a cartoonishly insane action yarn that the star somehow plays straight. That’s what he does. Put him in a leather jacket, […]
The Commuter (2018) Review

The Commuter (2018) Review

Not all stupid B-movies are created equal. Some are just dumb and bad. You know the type, even if it’s hard to think of specific examples since they tend to fade from memory so quickly. Other dumb B-movies are made by people smart in enough to play into the stupidity. You know, those special B-movie […]
Insidious: The Last Key (2018) Review

Insidious: The Last Key (2018) Review

You can always tell when even the folks putting out late sequels in a horror franchise know that it isn’t a good idea anymore.

Ranking Season 4 Of Black Mirror

Anyone who appreciates cynicism and speculative science fiction (which lets face it are cousins, if not synonyms) has a special place in their shrivelled little heart for Black Mirror.

CGMagazine Best of 2017: Film (Part 1)

Like it or not, 2017 has finally stumbled to a close—I jest of course, obviously you’re thrilled that 2017 is over. This was a brutal year. A reality TV star with a bad tan and a worse brain somehow became president. Beloved filmmakers like Jonathan Demme, George A. Romero, and Tobe Hooper passed away. Other […]
No Other Games Need Apply: Mario Odyssey is GOTY 3

No Other Games Need Apply: Super Mario Odyssey is Game of the Year

Picking out a game of the year is a painful and thankless task. There are always so many options, and everyone has different criteria. For some, diving into an open world universe that sucked up the bulk of their life for weeks at a time is the only video game experience to be celebrated. For […]
Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle (2017) Review 1

Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle (2017) Review

Yep, that’s right. I’m actually going to get behind the Jumanji sequel with a straight face and trust me, no one is more surprised about it than I am. On paper, it seemed impossible that a decades-late sequel to a mediocre 90’s kiddie fantasy picture starring a professional wrestler could be anything other than crap. […]
Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2008) Review

Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi (2008) Review

JJ Abrams’ The Force Awakens was, in its own way, a little miracle of a movie. After not even George Lucas himself could make audiences tingle with those special Star Wars feels that flooded through audiences after their first trip to a galaxy far far away, Abrams achieved the impossible by giving everyone a new […]
