The Dark Tower: A Fanboy Review

Rogue Hippo’s Review Score: 3*

My mother always says, “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.”  For my mother’s sake, I’ll try to come up with some positive things about The Dark Tower

…ummmm….

…well…

…if you need some stocking-stuffer ideas, I expect this movie will be in your local Walmart’s ‘$5 DVD’ bin by Christmas.  That’s the only positive thing I can think of.  Now, on to the real meat and potatoes… Continue reading “The Dark Tower: A Fanboy Review”

Review: Dunkirk

Rogue Hippo’s Review Score: 10

Wow!  This movie is incredible!  Go see Dunkirk; and, as a good friend put it, see it “on the biggest screen you can find.”  In fact, reading this review is a poor use of your time that could be better spent watching Dunkirk.  However, since you’re here, I’ll try to do this movie justice.

With that in mind, I bring you the third edition of “Top 5 Friday”; a weekly (or bi-weekly, if I’m being honest) list of dork topics, random thoughts and balderdash.

Kids today.  They don’t play outside, they have no imagination, and they can’t stand the thought of being without their smartphones for even a second.  Luckily, Rogue Hippo is here to tell the Millennials exactly what’s wrong with them… Continue reading “Top 5 Movies That Fueled My Sense of Adventure”

Review: Life is Strange

Rogue Hippo’s Review Score: 9

I’m an old-school gamer with limited time for video games.  When I do find some time, I prefer NES games, SNES games and 10-20 year old strategy/rpg games.  So when I can’t stop playing a new(ish), story-driven game about a Continue reading “Review: Life is Strange”

Review: The Dark Tower Trailer

I’m a huge Dark Tower fan.  The story and it’s characters/world rates up there among my all-time favorites with the likes of Stars Wars, Aliens and Middle-Earth.  My friends and family know this, so my brother didn’t hesitate to inform me when he noticed the new Dark Tower trailer this morning:

Asskicking throwdown

stryder HD created has an interesting pretense: would would happen when two high profile assassins tangle? It becomes a real battle royale at the end!

Sure, we’ve had actors portray Spider-Man since Tobey Maguire donned the red spandex in 2002, but somehow Hugh Jackman keeps churning out Wolverine movies. The most recent (and “last”) film, Logan, recently revealed an initial trailer.
