The true story of the heroics of Pfc. Desmond Doss is nothing short of incredible, unreal, and every other superlative you can come up with. Director Mel Gibson (Braveheart) admirably tells Doss’s story in Hacksaw Ridge, a powerful war drama steeped in grace from its main character and horror from its battlefield sequences. Hacksaw Ridge does not shy away from its unwavering principles in a time where the world was tearing itself apart. While it might feel clichéd at times, the cast of Hacksaw Ridge elevates those moments and give balance to a war drama that doesn’t need to rely solely on war violence to drive the narrative. War dramas are a dime a dozen, but Hacksaw Ridge is without a doubt the best war drama in recent memory and the first movie of the fall that could (and should) generate some Oscar buzz.

It’s almost Halloween, little kids are dressing up, there’s Halloween themed internet posts and the stores are ready to get out the Christmas decorations. I should be knee deep in horror films (bad and good) and instead I get… Inferno. What happened, Hollywood? Did you read my reviews last year and decide not to make any more? Because if that’s it, I didn’t mean it, I swear. I’d rather have all the bad horror films than whatever this was. Maybe I’m just cranky this week, but I wasn’t a fan of Inferno. If you love Dan Brown and his movies, I’m warning you up front: don’t read this review. I’m going to trash this puppy and there’s going to be spoilers. Read more

He’s created some of the greatest and most memorable comic characters ever and drawn definitive versions of classics like Judge Dredd and The Punisher.
It’s almost Halloween and there’s been a shortage of horror films. The only other scary film I can remember this year was The Witch and that came out in April. So, in the spirit of the season I went to see Ouija: Origin of Evil, a prequel to the 2014 film that I hadn’t even heard of before I looked it up after seeing this film. Pumping out another film when the original wasn’t that great (apparently) is a sure sign of creative bankruptcy, so I wasn’t that optimistic. Still, I’d rather be punched in the fact than watch that Jack Reacher film which, incidentally, is also made after the original wasn’t that great (apparently). Huh. Read more
So technically Rocksmith Remastered version isn’t a new game, its just a large upgrade to the currently existing Rocksmith 2014. But I feel that with the new and highly anticipated features, combined with my passion for the game, it’s worth doing a review and maybe giving some insight to those interested in this music learning tool.
