The Very Best Stuff
Hellblade sits at the intersection of Amazing Piece of Art and Creepy Nightmare Factory, which is an intersection I was surprisingly okay with visiting.
Arkham Knight takes everything great about the gameplay in Arkham City and throws it in a blender with everything great about the storytelling and immersion in Arkham Origins, and then adds tanks. It’s an amazing finale to the series and it made me admire Rocksteady a little.
The psychedelic IMAX poster was the only part I genuinely loved.
I mean, there’s literally no way it could have been as bad as everybody said.
Before the Bitch Flicks hiatus, I wrote many more words about my love for Moonlight, which you can find on their site, now (external link).
It’s amazing how much better this show is when you’re old enough to understand what’s going on.
In which I break my self-imposed boycott on Fifty Shades of Grey long enough to question everything I know about porn (external link).
I write about The Great Beauty and what our DVD collections say about us as part of Bright Wall/Dark Room’s identity issue (external link).
I review Starless Dreams as part of the Human Rights Watch Film Festival coverage at Bitch Flicks (external link).
On the Perfection of Choosing Your Own Hardboiled Detective in The Wolf Among Us and the Weirdness of Ogling His Boss
The detective genre may be the perfect complement to Telltale’s game design formula. At the very least, it’s a much better match than the Pretend You’re Getting Tortured by a Guy from Game of Thrones genre.
Over at Bitch Flicks, I’m surprised by my own emotions as I watch the premiere episode of Fuller House (external link).
I worked all day Saturday and then it turned out the new movie on TMN was this. That’s how I got stuck watching it.
In the lead-up to Witcher 3, Steam was selling Witcher 2 for $5, so welcome to my review of Witcher 2, a game that I like even though it kind of hated me.
Yes, everyone thinks Game of Thrones is awesome, but, in retrospect, the first episode may have been the most awesome of all.
Just in time for the fourth game in the Arkham series, I got around to playing the first one.
This is the rare example of a time travel movie that follows its own rules and ends up being worse for it.
After procrastinating for literally ten years, I have finally watched two of Hayao Miyazaki’s best-loved films. Basically, it’s the same movie twice, but one time it’s about humility, and one time it’s about aging. Both times, it’s also about how people are more than one way.
Thanks to a time-sucking demon called Netflix, I can now revisit my favourite childhood TV show and feel judgemental toward it.
I write about Snowpiercer, The Cabin in the Woods and the unspeakable horror of moral decision-making over at Bright Lights Film Journal (external link).
