Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (Movie) Review

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (2016) Review

 |  Phil Brown
Well, no one particularly liked the “gritty” 2014 reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but audiences spent just under $500 million worldwide deciding that they didn’t like it. So that means that we get a sequel this week.
13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (Movie) Review 4

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016) Review

 |  Phil Brown
If anyone ever dares to finance a Call Of Duty movie, you can guarantee that Michael Bay will be the first director to get a call. After all, his love of explosions, bullets, and uniforms is equaled only by his distaste for subtlety and human drama. Until that day comes, we’ll all have 13 Hours […]
Project Almanac (Movie) Review 4

Project Almanac (2015) Review

 |  Phil Brown
Oh time travel, you are a fickle beast aren’t you? Whether it’s Homer Simpson with a toaster, Marty McFly with a rad skateboard, the Loopers with their looping, or whatever the hell was supposed to be happening in Primer, things never quite go as planned now do they? You see there are paradoxes and temporal […]

Ranking The Nightmare On Elm Street Franchise

 |  Phil Brown
Hard though it might be to believe, just after Halloween this year A Nightmare On Elm Street will turn thirty. That’s right, everyone’s favorite child murderer with dream powers is about to enter his third decade of existence. Even after all these years, Freddy Kreuger remains one of the definitive horror icons. Any costume shop […]

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) Review

 |  Phil Brown
Full disclosure, I was as seduced by the Ninja Turtles as a child, same as anyone. I had the toys, the bike helmet, the video games, VHS copies of the movies, and I watched every damn episode of the cartoon. Hell, I even went to the Coming Out Of Their Shells rock tour that was […]
The Purge: Anarchy (Movie) Review 2

The Purge: Anarchy (2014) Review

 |  Phil Brown
The Purge was a surprise hit last summer thanks to a pretty ingenious (in a gloriously stupid way) central concept. Unfortunately, the movie failed to actually show the promised night of anarchy known as the purge, instead merely delivering a mediocre home invasion movie anchored by Ethan Hawke being Ethan Hawke. This rushed-to-release sequel rights […]
Transformers: Rise Of The Dark Spark (PS3) Review 5

Transformers: Rise Of The Dark Spark (PS3) Review

 |  Phil Brown
If nothing else, I suppose Transformers: Rise Of The Dark Spark earns points for being an accurate translation of the pains of watching Michael Bay’s latest twisted metal mess in video game form. Sure, the look of the transformers is there, stuff blows up constantly, and players can indeed transform while blowing that stuff up. […]

CGMPodcast Episode 113: Transformers Fails Again

 |  Melanie Emile
On this week’s CGM podcast, Crytek might be in trouble, but that’s no real surprise considering how things have been going for them the last few months. Phil has watched the latest Transformers movie and the verdict is not good, think everything bad about Michael Bay movies x 4. Finally, Valiant Hearts is Ubisoft’s latest […]
Transformers: Age Of Extinction Movie Review 3

Transformers: Age Of Extinction (2014) Review

 |  Phil Brown
Transformers: Age Of Extinction isn’t a movie, it’s an endurance test. You could argue that Michael Bay’s entire career has been a never ending quest to discover “how much is too much,” but this one really takes the cake. You know all those jokes made about how Bad Boys 2 ended and then tossed in […]

CGMPodcast Episode 109 – Michael Bay and Explosions

 |  Melanie Emile
On this week’s CGM podcast, Harmonix has a successful Kickstarter then fires a bunch of people. Guess that crowd funding stuff ain’t all it’s cracked up to be. Edgar Wright walks away from the Ant-Man movie which is actually some pretty horrible news for concerned geeks everywhere, and Watch_Dogs is finally out, and it’s good, […]
