Review – Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV
Even if you’re not a gamer, there’s a pretty good chance you’ve heard the name “Final Fantasy” before. Counting all the various spinoffs, compilations, etc. there have been over one hundred Final Fantasy video games since 1987, with the latest in the main series – number fifteen – slated for release this year. Suffice toContinue reading “Review – Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV”
Review – War Dogs
In the grand tradition of The Wolf of Wall Street and Pain and Gain, War Dogs is the latest stranger than fiction tale of morally questionable behavior wrapped in the silky sheets of dark comedy.
Review – Suicide Squad
You’re probably aware that DC is launching a film universe built around their most famous group of superheroes – The Justice League. We’ll see how that movie does next year, but for now we’re presented with a comic book team you probably never heard of before now. The Suicide Squad.

Thirteen years ( ) later we are presentedContinue reading “Review – Finding Dory”

The rather unlikely pairing of two of the most charasmatic men working in Hollywood was moreContinue reading “Review – Central Intelligence”
Review – The Conjuring 2
Director James Wan is back with another “true” tale from the case files of the infamous paranormal investigating duo, Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Ver Farmiga). This time we head to London for what is considered the Amityville of Britain.
Review – Warcraft
No good film adaptation of a video game has ever been made – at least none of them have managed a “fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Based on the massively popular franchise, Warcraft, the third game adaptation this year already, aims to the first real success in the genre. Is it miss or aContinue reading “Review – Warcraft”
