Outside is Overrated

Why go outside with the zombies, sharks and bugs?

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”

DragonBall FighterZ Beta Impressions

Guest Post By: Super Saiyan Scott

Being a big fan of both fighting games and the DragonBall franchise, it’s not hard to see why I have been incredibly excited for DragonBall FighterZ since it was revealed at E3 2017. So when I got a chance to play the open beta this last weekend, I sucked up every ounce of hands-on time with the game that my schedule would allow.

Top 5 Stand-Up Comedians

I’ve been slacking lately with Top 5 Friday blogs… a thousand apologies, loyal readers!

Today I decided to mix it up and discuss my Top 5 stand-up comedians.  Comedy is an under-appreciated art, in my opinion.  A musical group can write a 3-minute song and get rich.  A stand-up comedian has to write 15, 30 or 60 minutes worth of jokes and perform in front of a drunken audience who won’t hesitate to start heckling if they aren’t impressed.  I’m not saying creating music is easy, but a 1988 Casio keyboard can come up with a good beat.  Yet there still isn’t a computer on on the planet that can tell a good joke.  With that in mind, it’s time to appreciate this under-appreciated art with…

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.
