What Do You Think? The Secret Life of Walter Mitty Trailer

UPDATE: New trailer added copyright problem fixed (at least for now) Ben Stiller stars and surprisingly directs this ambitious adaptation of James Thurbold’s short-story of the same name. A previous film adaptation in 1947 starred Boris Karloff with actor Danny Kaye as the title character, and the story has had several stage interpretations but as…

Pacific Rim Review

Release Date: July 12th, 2013             Director: Guillermo Del Toro One of my most anticipated films of the year was Pacific Rim. I tried doing a media blackout on it like I did with Cloud Atlas but couldn’t, fortunately I’d forgotten most of what I’d seen by the time I entered…

Hall of Game: First Person Shooters – Matter of Perspective

Hall of Game: Third Person Shooters – The Line between Payne and Domain

I’ve wanted to play Binary Domain since the first trailer was released. The game was released early last year to decent reviews saying the game had solid mechanics and interesting ideas. I was the most enticed by the AV Club review of the game (now Gameological [and folded back in]), one of more consistent review outlets who praised…
