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.
Ruel Gaviola grew up around games, mainly at family parties where games of poker and mah jong were not uncommon. For years his idea of game night centered around poker and all of its variations. It wasn’t until he discovered Pandemic that he was drawn into the wonderful world of tabletop gaming and his passion for the hobby grew.

I have an internet connection, and I saw Thor: Ragnarok over the weekend, which makes me more than qualified to write a review (spoiler-free as usual).

Let’s begin… Continue reading “Watch The Bad Batch on Netflix”

Check out the new trailer for the show below!
Video game movies have a rough track record. From the awful to the uninspired, franchise after franchise tries to establish itself on the big screen, only to fall into the $5 bargain bin at WalMart.
After one look at the Tomb Raider trailer, I’m convinced that trend is going to change.

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?
