Snowpiercer: The Complete First Season

I unexpectedly received the opportunity to check out the complete first season of Snowpiercer and I'm here to let you know if it's worth picking it up when it hits shelves in a few days' time.

The Midnight Sky

Have you ever watched a film and it immediately turns you off because of some questionable decisions by the creative team? That was my experience with The Midnight Sky. More so than just boredom, questionable direction, a shallow story, or bad acting, what soured my take on this film is nonsensical storytelling logic. 

Death of Me (Blu-ray)

Maggie Q and Luke Hemsworth face a supernatural threat in "Death of Me,' now on Blu-ray! Here's our review!

Wonder Woman 1984

Though it might be releasing a bit later (and differently) than expected, Wonder Woman 1984 makes for an incredible Christmas present that delivers hope and good feelings all around. Check out our full review of DC’s latest release!

Eye Candy That Leaves You Waiting and Wanting

In a content barren game where these amazing creatures are called "assets," it makes it all too clear that the gamer isn't a "player," they're a "payer." Jurassic World Evolution...

A Self-Fulfilling Prophecy

I wish there was a little more meat on the bones of State of Decay 2. Sadly, the game's title will most likely become a self-fulfilling prophecy; it'll enter a...

A Game Long After Its Time

Overall, Age of Empires: Definitive Edition is a good HD remaster with a few bigger issues that have followed it for 20 years. It's hard to say it's a remaster...

"What's Past is Prologue"

Before the Storm's second chapter delivers a sense of mythos I want in my Life is Strange games, cutting out much of that edginess which made the characters feel less...

Night Trap is a cheesy old game, and its 25th anniversary re-release embraces that fully by keeping what made the game charmingly low-budget while making it more accessible to the...
