A Dog’s Purpose: Warm & Moving But All The Best Stuff Was in The Trailer [Review]

A Dog’s Purpose: Warm & Moving But All The Best Stuff Was in The Trailer [Review]

This week I went to see A Dog’s Purpose.  I just wasn’t up for watching Milla Jovovich fight her way across yet another zombie stuffed wasteland.  Again.  But f I’m being honest, I have to tell you – the ‘feel good movie’ is not one my preferred genres.  I prefer movies that make me think instead of just going for the Feels.  I might not be the best person to review A Dog’s Purpose so let me just say upfront that the other people in the theater thought it was wonderful and I thought it was pretty good.

Shadow Tactics Blades of The Shogun: Rich, Thrilling & Incredibly Well Crafted Stealth [Review]

Shadow Tactics Blades of The Shogun: Rich, Thrilling & Incredibly Well Crafted Stealth [Review]

It’s been a while since a proper stealth game has been in the spotlight of the gaming world. Sure there has been plenty of great games to have come out recently that incorporate stealth into them like the Arkham franchise, the Dishonored games, Hitman and many more, but those games use stealth as an optional component of the game play. Most “stealth” based games you can pick up these days allow you to sneak around and take out enemies without getting noticed but if you do get noticed, you can go all out without much consequence. In Shadow Tactics however, things are much different. Read more

xXx: Return of Xander Cage – Charming with So Much Energy & Enthusiasm [Review]

xXx: Return of Xander Cage – Charming with So Much Energy & Enthusiasm [Review]

This week it was either Split or xXx and since multiple-personality plots annoy me and I still haven’t quite forgiven M. Night Shyamalan (despite the excellent The Visit, last year) so it had to be xXx: Return of Xander Cage.  I was not optimistic.  The first xXx was 14 years ago and was just a couple years after Pitch Black, my favorite Vin Diesel film.  Could this new instalment measure up to the original and would it be worth watching?   Read more

Split: Folks, M. Night Shyamalan is Back [Review]

Split: Folks, M. Night Shyamalan is Back [Review]

I have not liked an M. Night Shyamalan movie since The Village and that came out 13 years ago. Since then, Shyamalan has made a string of awful, degrading movies. His most recent movie, The Visit, had an interesting concept (like all of his movies), but nothing stuck in the overall scheme of things. And I never made it past 15 minutes into some of his other recent movies (Devil, After Earth), because I knew I was in for another headache. Shyamalan has been in my dog house for a while now, but when the previews for Split first appeared, I was initially curious. Was Shyamalan onto something? Was he finally back? As it turns out, absolutely yes, is the answer to both of these questions. Split is an expertly-crafted psychological horror movie and a return to form for Shyamalan, whose twistingly-good storytelling was sorely missed.
