I admit it, I spent almost 18 years of my life without the pleasure of seeing one of the greatest movies ever produced. I bet at this point, you are all wondering what movie could possibly be so good, that I’ve labeled it as one of the greatest. Well dear reader, Clueless, is what I’d like to call...

By looking at the name of this article, you are probably thinking “Oh god, I thought we were done with this Harambe stuff.” However, the memes created after the death of harambe is not what I am here to talk about. Harambe’s death became very controversial soon after his death. His death brough...

DOOM is a kind-of-sort-of reboot of the venerable first-person franchise where you play as a soldier man who kills every demon he can find. The new game delivers on the singleplayer, having a no-nonsense gore extravaganza with plenty of eye candy. The weapons are all satisfying to use, the sounds are...

“The Magnificent Seven (2016) isn't going to eclipse its predecessors but it is, nonetheless, an immensely entertaining and heartfelt action-western experience.” - Ben Kendrick (Screen Rant) “Fuqua’s direction has no intimacy — it’s too brisk, too metronomic. Without violence or its imminen...

It’s no secret that I love Shawn Mendes. Stitches was practically my savior last year whenever I was going through a difficult time. So, it’s no surprise that I would be elated to hear his recently released CD, Illuminate. It is a surprise though, on the mixed feelings I have after listening to ...

Over a month has passed since its release, and time has told that the supposed “blockbuster of the summer”, otherwise known as Suicide Squad, has successfully found the line between pure likability and utter entertainment catastrophe.

Filed under Archives, Reviews, Showcase

Everybody bolt up; or maybe just sit back and watch, because the new Ratchet and Clank movie, whilst charming and fun, is looks and not much more. The “movie based on the game” reinvents the popular game from 2002 in a stylish way but ultimately fails to recapture the humor, weaponry, and adventure tha...
