Review: Shadowrun Dragonfall

I’m going to cheat a little bit with this review.  As has been widely reported, I recently reviewed Shadowrun Returns and, in short, it’s a great game for fans of RPGs and turn-based combat.  Well Shadowrun Dragonfall is so similar that I’m going to piggy-back off of that review so I recommend that you read that one first.

Review: Shadowrun Returns

My possibly-embarrassing New Year’s resolution was to play more video games and I’m off to a pretty good start in 2018.  Recently I played through Shadowrun Returns and I wanted to share my thoughts with the Outside is Overrated audience. Continue reading “Review: Shadowrun Returns”

The Last Jedi: The Force Is Weak With This One

Rogue Hippo’s Review Score: 6.5

Haha!  Get it?  The force is weak with this one!  Because usually, in Star Wars, they say; “The force is strong with this one.”  But I used WEAK instead!  I read a bunch of Last Jedi reviews and I can’t believe I haven’t seen this brilliantly clever line used yet!  What could that mean?  Either I’m more cleverer than all of the movie review peoples on the internets… or somehow everyone else actually liked this 2.5 hour escapade in mediocrity.

Luckily, Rogue Hippo is here to give you the correct answer.  Let’s review The Last Jedi! Continue reading “The Last Jedi: The Force Is Weak With This One”

Justice League Review

Justice League

Tom Awesome’s Review Score: 8.25

What makes a great superhero movie? Is it the super powered character? A witty teammate who always has a cheeky one-liner? Perhaps a larger-than-life villain or over-the-top fight sequences? Whatever the winning formula is, Justice League hits some of the highs in spite of a few stumbles along the way.

Watch The Bad Batch on Netflix

FACT: I’m probably the world’s leading authority on Netflix shows.  There’s no debating that.

As the reigning King of Netflix, I now decree that you watch The Bad Batch.  It needs to happen.  I’m not even going to try to write a review of The Bad Batch because words cannot begin to accurately describe this movie.  Instead, I’m going to do try something new that I call Picture Movie Math; in which I attempt to describe with pictures, that which cannot be described with words.  Let’s begin… Continue reading “Watch The Bad Batch on Netflix”

Power Rangers Didn’t Suck!

Power Rangers

Tom Awesome’s Review Score: 8

What would happen in today’s super-powered age of cinema if you took five unknown actors, dumped them into a quarry, gave them super powers and tasked them with saving the world before they had the experience to fully harness their abilities? Oh, and base it on a cheesy 90’s kids show?

It turns out, you get a pretty fun flick. Who knew?

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.

Review: Spider-Man Homecoming

Tom Awesome’s Review Score: 8.5

I am an unabashed Spider-Fan. I own no fewer than six Spidey shirts, and at last count I have 23 collections of Peter Parker’s finest tales – not including any of the exclusive Venom sets. I had reservations going into Spider-Man Homecoming, and I am pleased to report that it was pretty good.
