Review: Indie Survival Horror Game ‘Kholat’ Now Available On Microsoft Store

Posted: October 20, 2017 at 8:48 am   /   Videogame Reviews

Kholat is available on the Microsoft Store for $19.99. A couple years ago, I found a website called Pinterest Fail, where people posted their attempts to mimic projects they found on Pinterest. The premise is simple: terrific ideas, but less-than-stellar executions. Be it the fault of the creator or the design, the end results on […]

Interview: Jeff Nations of Rookie of the Year

Posted: August 12, 2017 at 11:14 am   /   Local

Ask Jeff Nations what he’s doing at any given moment, and there’s a pretty good chance the answer will revolve around music. “I was hooked the second I picked it up,” he professes when talking about receiving his first guitar for his 11th birthday. “I’ve always been genuinely interested in music and have had a […]

Review: ‘Atomic Blonde’ Starring Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, Sofia Boutella

Posted: July 28, 2017 at 8:46 am   /   Movie Reviews

I’m not exactly sure why, but for whatever reason the 1980s are enjoying a strong renaissance. Wherever you look, the influence of the neon decade has hovered over media, be it in TV shows (“Stranger Things,” the “Lethal Weapon” series), movie reboots (Ghostbusters, Blade Runner), hell, even some video games (Far Cry: Blood Dragon) have […]

Review: ‘The Mummy’ Starring Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella, Annabelle Wallis

Posted: June 9, 2017 at 7:27 am   /   Movie Reviews

I really wanted to like The Mummy. I also really wanted to date Sara Jean Underwood when I was in college. Sometimes we don’t get what we want. After seemingly going off the deep end back in the mid-2000s over his love of Katie Holmes and Scientology, Tom Cruise’s acting career has quietly managed to surge […]

You have been warned.  There’s a scene in the original Alien that’s always stuck in my head. Armed with a flamethrower, Dallas is crawling through the airducts of the Nostromo, trying […]

Review: ‘The Lovers’ Starring Debra Winger, Tracy Letts, Aidan Gillen

Posted: May 5, 2017 at 8:45 am   /   Movie Reviews

Sometimes, the fairy tale doesn’t work out. Everyone who’s dated knows the drill. You meet someone, you fall in love, and everything’s perfect. As time goes on, though, you wear on each other, and the spark slowly fades to the point that you’re nothing more than tax-saving roommates. And that’s the catch of The Lovers. […]

Review: Disney’s ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Starring Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Ewan McGregor, Ian McKellen

Posted: March 10, 2017 at 6:00 am   /   Movie Reviews

I have a confession to make. I didn’t really watch Disney films as a child. Okay, that isn’t completely accurate. Dumbo was one of my favorite movies growing up, and when I was 9, my sister dragged me to the theaters to watch The Lion King for her birthday. Beyond that, though, I never watched […]

Review: LOGAN Starring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen

Posted: March 3, 2017 at 7:32 am   /   Movie Reviews

This is what we wanted, isn’t it? A no-holds-barred, unfiltered look into the world of the X-Men, as opposed to the toned-down PG-13 version offered by the previous films in the series? A chance to see Wolverine shine in his full, unadulterated glory? Hell yes. What wouldn’t have been possible were it not for the […]

Heir to the throne of the Bamangwato people residing in Bechuanaland (modern-day Botswana), Seretse’s (David Oyelowo) efforts to lead his people in the […]

Review: ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ Starring Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Hugh Dancy

Posted: February 9, 2017 at 6:15 pm   /   Movie Reviews

Have you ever gone into a movie, hoping against all odds that it’d be a great movie, and you get completely and pleasantly surprised? Well that didn’t happen with 50 Shades Darker. I should preface this by saying that I never saw the first film, nor did I read the books that the films are […]
