Suicide Squad review

30 August 2016 by , No Comments

I’ve been sitting here trying to think of a nice thing to say at the beginning of my Suicide Squad review and, after much deliberation, the best thing I can say about it is, “It’s not as bad as everybody says.” Not exactly a quote that’ll end up on the Blu-Ray cover but I don’t […]

Jason Bourne film review

7 August 2016 by , No Comments

The inherent problem with Jason Bourne as a character and, by extension, every movie he appears in is that he has no reason to keep existing after he solves his problems. He’s not like James Bond, a classy-looking attack dog Great Britain can point in the general direction of a soon-to-be-mauled problem, he’s just a […]

Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest review

4 August 2016 by , No Comments

Once upon a time, there was a franchise called Fire Emblem. It was a rather unique little strategy role-playing game, since every unit you could recruit had a name and a backstory and died for good if you lost them. It was a great series but it never quite made Nintendo’s A-List and, for a […]

Ghostbusters 2016 review

21 July 2016 by , No Comments

I am disappointed to say that the new Ghostbusters movie is bad. It’s unfunny, it’s unfocused, and undeniably struggles to carve out any sort of identity for itself – and yet, somehow, I can’t quite bring myself to hate it in the same way that I’ve hated other bad movies. There’s just enough kind-of-okay ideas […]

Hugh Jackman: HughJackolypse review

22 May 2016 by , No Comments

Surprisingly, after eating up 90% of the screen time in Hugh Jackman: Hughs of Jackman Past, Hugh Jackman has very little to do with this movie beyond a rather token cameo that serves no purpose other than to ruin everyone’s efforts to try and sort some sort of continuity out in these movies. At this […]

Batman v Superman review

2 April 2016 by , No Comments

This movie was a real rollercoaster of a flick. For every rise to awesomeness, there was an awkward drop into awfulness. It goes up and down so much that the only thing I can really score it is a middle-of-the-road 5/10. Our story hook is quite decent enough. The flick takes place 18 months after […]

Persona Q short review

17 November 2015 by , No Comments

Persona Q is a nice little crossover game between Persona 3 and 4 that I’ve been working on getting through for the better part of the year on and off now. It’s nothing that will set the world on fire anytime soon but, as a fan of the series, it was a cute little treat. […]

Digital Devil Saga 1 & 2 review

29 August 2015 by , No Comments

I don’t think much of the Shin Megami Tensei series. I don’t think it’s bad, I just struggle to get into it. Any world that starts with, “Heaven and Hell are both irredeemably evil” and then gets worse from there strikes me as being too hopeless to care about. I don’t know whether to roll […]
