Destiny: The Taken King (2015) Review

It’s hard to imagine it has already been a year since Bungie first took players on a new sort of space-faring adventure with the launch of its ambitious online shooter Destiny. It’s even harder to imagine just how much Destiny has changed since that inaugural takeoff one year ago. With the release of Destiny’s latest expansion, The Taken King, Bungie isn’t just adding on to what was already there,...[Read More]

Mad Max (2015) Game Review

To start this review off, I’ll readily admit I’m not the most learned Mad Max aficionado. I saw the original Mel Gibson movie when I was a kid, remember next to nothing about it, and never bothered with the two sequels. I enjoyed this summer’s blockbuster movie Mad Max: Fury Road immensely, but that’s in no small part because it had virtually nothing to do with the original trilogy (aside from tak...[Read More]

Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition (2015) Review

When Capcom’s Devil May Cry 4 was first released back in 2008, it heralded a number of intriguing new changes for the franchise. Not only was it the first Devil May Cry game to be featured on the (then) new –gen PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles, it was also the first game in the series to be released on a non-PlayStation platform (in addition to consoles, it was also released for PC). The game’...[Read More]

Inside Out (2015) Review

Up until recently, Pixar Animations, one of the giants of the animated film industry thanks in no small part to its partnership with Disney, was in a bit of a rut. Even the most devoted of fans began to notice that the studio seemed more interested in churning out lackluster sequels for its hit money-making properties like Monsters Inc. and Cars than in producing original works in the vein of the ...[Read More]

Spy (2015) Review

For the third time now, writer/director Paul Feig and actress Melissa McCarthy have proven they’re a dynamic comedy duo with the action-comedy Spy. Feig managed to write and direct a film that perfectly blends edge-of-your-seat action with ridiculously funny comedy and McCarthy, who previously worked with Feig in both Bridesmaids and The Heat, has once again proven that she’s one of the funniest w...[Read More]

Results (2015) Review

Results, the new indie film from director Andrew Bujalski which stars Guy Pearce and Cobie Smulders, is billed as a romantic comedy but it is also very much a character piece. The film is strange to be sure thanks to its oddly-paced plot, seemingly random segues, and scene shots that have characters delivering lines off-screen on multiple occasions. It’s tough to call Results a comedy however (at ...[Read More]

Tomorrowland (2015) Review

Tomorrowland, the new Disney film from director Brad Bird and starring George Clooney, is very much a movie for dreamers and Disney fans. The film’s underlying message that optimism, determination, and hope can conquer any challenge and make anything possible is presented via a world that melds our “boring” reality with a neo-60’s dystopian sci-fi alternate dimension that Walt Disney himself would...[Read More]

Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) Review

Reboots and sequels seem to be all the rage these days in Hollywood but that doesn’t change the fact that director George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road is an unusual case. Fury Road is the fourth canonical entry in the Mad Max series, arriving some 30 years after the third film; 1985’s Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome. For the franchise’s fourth entry, Miller recruited the likes of Tom Hardy,...[Read More]

Maggie (2015) Review

At first glance, you’d be forgiven for quirking an eyebrow (or perhaps even rolling your eyes) at the thought of Arnold Schwarzenegger in a zombie movie. Even as he enters his older years, the iconic former action star is still known for defying his age in films like Escape Plan, Sabotage, and the Expendables trilogy, movies in which the plot tends to take a backseat to the explosions, gun battles...[Read More]

Beyond The Reach (2015) Review

Man hunting man is a movie trope that is nearly as old as the film industry itself and yet, despite its heavy use, it continues to be an exciting narrative despite its simple premise. There’s just something primal and strangely intimate about two people being locked in a deadly game of hunter and hunted. One could argue that it is the purest and most raw form of good vs. evil and it is that idea t...[Read More]

Mortdecai (2015) Review

It’s been a slow couple of years for the comedy/caper genre which is a shame since it is one of the most accessible film genres for viewers of all ages. There’s a little something for everyone: attractive-looking (and smartly dressed) characters, slapstick laughs, punchy dialogue, and even a little action thrown in just for kicks. Lionsgate is hoping to breathe some much-needed life into the genre...[Read More]

Selma (2015) Review

Every generation has its share of battles to fight and ours is a generation that has grown accustomed to anonymous social media wars with angry blog rants and 140-character barbs being the chief weapons of choice. Back in the 1960’s however, those who wanted to make a change (and those who opposed it) didn’t have the luxury of hiding behind anonymous blogs or dummy Twitter accounts. Real change wa...[Read More]
