Attempting to mix character development, plot cohesion, fan service, attitude, humor and action all into one film proves an impossible task for Ayer, and the result is some pacing issues. The film’s first 30 or so minutes is almost like a big monta...

Blu-ray Review: War Dogs

Jonah Hill has had no shortage of memorable roles during his career, from Superbad to Moneyball to Wolf of Wall Street, but we're not sure he's done a better job than what he did in War Dogs. While we have no idea how faithful the portrayal is to rea...

Video Game Review: World of Final Fantasy

Dawwwwww… it’s chibi Cloud! Like many, our love affair with Final Fantasy began with Final Fantasy VII. It has continued now for nearly 20 years and includes not only the numeric sequels but also the MMORPG, spinoffs and, of course, Final...

Video Game Review: Bound

Presentation is where Bound does its best work, creating a truly surreal world that shifts and undulates as you dance across it. I've reviewed hundreds of games, and I can't think of one that comes all that close to matching what's offered up here --...

Video Game Review: I Am Setsuna

In typical JRPG fashion, up to three characters can actively take part in battles (inactive members still earn half the experience). Each carries a class-specific weapon and can equip talismans that provide unique buffs and additional slots for “Sp...

Video Game Review: Ghostbusters

Actually playing the game, however, ends up being an exercise in repetition. So much so, in fact, that we were able to accurately call out when things, like checkpoints and brief cut scenes that introduce larger battles, were going to appear with inc...

Video Game Review: INSIDE

There are no "ah ha" moments where you find a conveniently located file detailing plans or stumble across a baddie outlining what's going on. In fact, there's no exposition at all, not even a single line of dialogue. Depending on how you look at it,...

Video Game Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan

Shredder and Krang are up to something, and it's up to the turtles to stop it. That about sums up the plotline of Mutants in Manhattan's nine-level journey as each stage is treated as a separate entity, complete with its own boss, and you'll always b...

Product Review: ModMic 4.0

If you've ever tried to carry on a conversation via your PC, Xbox Live or the PlayStation Network while gaming, you know the results can be, shall we say, uneven. And this isn't a problem that's limited to the cheap headsets included in console purch...

Blu-ray Review: 10 Cloverfield Lane

As good as all three of them are, though, Goodman is the show stealer. He's so creepy and threatening, and yet at the same time he appears to have literally saved their lives by getting them in the shelter. He has light moments and shows tenderness a...

Blu-ray Review: 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi

What would Pam think? When you think biographical war films, Michael Bay isn’t the first name that comes to mind. He’s the king of the eminently watchable yet ultimately dispensable popcorn movie, from Bad Boys to Pearl Harbor to Transfor...
