Doll Factory Review

Just because you can make a movie doesn’t necessarily mean you actually should. This is a sentiment I’ve felt many times after watching some real flops. For some reason, the horror genre seems to be plagued by them. It got to where there’s a whole sub-genre known as “B-horror.” These are typically films that are campy, cheesy, and over-the-top to the point of being co...[Read More]

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening Review

Let’s face it. Nintendo has a monopoly on all of our nostalgia due to all of the beloved titles they’ve released over the years. They are the Disney of the video game world and they know it. One of the biggest fan favorites is the Legend of Zelda series. I remember back in my childhood spending countless hours playing A Link to the Past and Link’s Awakening. While the former got ...[Read More]

The Long Journey Home Review

Exploration can be a fun aspect of games for fans to play. However, it must be done in a way that makes the player want to continue the journey. This goes back all the way to the days of pen and paper games that allowed players to use their imagination to build the world around them. Today, we look into The Long Journey Home. Today, game developers have made it possible for RPG fans to immerse the...[Read More]

Ashes Review

When watching independent films it’s important to keep an open mind. They are seen as being more experimental and don’t tend to follow typical tropes laid out by bigger-budgeted works. That can be both a blessing and a curse because these tropes exist for a reason and removing them from a genre can end in disaster. Ashes is a film that attempts to bring together the genres of comedy an...[Read More]

Hellmington Review

I am one to hold the belief that not all movies need to break new ground. However, the most important aspect of a film for me is the story and its ability to draw me in. This can extend to the setting, the plot, and the characters and if at least some of those connect to the audience then I can overlook other shortcomings. Hellmington is a 2018 Canadian Horror/Thriller film that tries to tell a go...[Read More]

Blair Witch Review

Movie-based video games aren’t a new concept. In fact, there have been video games based on movies all the way back in the early 80s. Although many of these games tend to be completely awful, some of them have won over gamers. However, video games based on horror movies tend to be the former rather than the latter. The Blair Witch franchise has had its time in the video game community with t...[Read More]

Captain Marvel: Liberation Run Prose Novel Review

Woman empowerment is an important topic to cover in all forms of media. We live in a time when there are so many inspirational and powerful women to look up to in politics, television, films, and books. Some of my favorite media characters are women. These include women like Buffy Summers, Wonder Woman, Katniss Everdeen, and Hermione Granger. What I love about these characters is that they aren...[Read More]

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark Review

Horror is a genre often thought to mostly enjoyed by adults. However, I was a kid that grew up loving everything horror. In fact, I can blame my fear of clowns growing up on watching IT as a child. It was around the 80s and early 90s when media companies started to take notice and produce horror content for kids. One of the first series of books, that I can remember, to do this was Scary Stories t...[Read More]

The Art of Godzilla: King of the Monsters Review

When most people think of monsters the words beauty and art don’t come to mind. However, there is a real beauty that lies in the details of monster creation and design. The monsters featured in the new Godzilla: King of the Monsters film are a prime example. Many of Godzilla’s former foes make a return giving ample opportunity for creature creation. Fortunately, the creators of the fil...[Read More]

Pawarumi Review

Pawarumi is a Sci-Fi action arcade game with a focus on shooting and dodging enemy attacks. The aim of the game is to take fans of this genre back to the glory days of 80s arcades when games like Galaga reigned supreme. The problem with modern games recreating old styles of gaming is that sometimes nostalgia isn’t enough. You need to somehow elevate your game to the next level or it just won...[Read More]
