Good news, everybody! There is content not written by Frank coming at you! So sit back, and read where Brandon has disappeared to for the last year.
So, I love myself a little bit of role-playing. I find that it is a great way to distract myself from what can often be a rather ...depressing reality. For a time, albeit a brief one, you get the opportunity to be someone else, somewhere else. You can immerse yourself into a world unlike your own, and just have fun with things. These worlds are sometimes very restricting, limited by the capabilities of the machine they are made on. But as the hardware capabilities increase, the level of immersion does as well. Today, I'm diving into Dragon Age Inquisition, as I see whether this is a blessing from Andraste, or dark spawn of the vilest sort.
There is a sad reality to not doing this professionally, that is... I have to do a regular job to afford to watch movies to write about. Sadly, that means I miss release dates, and sometimes I have to skip movies I really wanted to see in favor of working an extra shift or two. However, this was the final item on my most anticipated films of 2014 list, and I could not let it pass by. So, despite this review being a week late, I present to you my thoughts on "Big Hero 6"
A while back, I nearly lost faith in the comics industry. DC had ruined their roster of characters with their New 52, and Marvel was embroiled in their seemingly endless array of events that required me to pick up 15 issues of comics I am uninterested in to get the entire story. I carried on with the books for a while, until DC shat out the massive turd known as "Villain's Month". From then on, my pull list was cut in half, and I was almost entirely Marvel exclusive. That has been the way it was, until I solicited my local comic shop guy's opinion on what I should try to broaden my horizons. So, today we step into the Way Back Machine, and head back to take a look at a title I missed in my myopic adherence to the status quo. Join me, as I take a look, at "Saga".
When I look at a comic, I often see things as not an issue of being a serial story, I tend to view it more as an overarching story. It is for this reason, that I often see the large compilations as a more complete experience, and more indicative of the whole. So when I review the first issue of something, I often find it a good idea to revisit things later, after seeing more of the story. This brings us to issue 2 of this comic. I believe this will be the 4th time I have written about Chris Campana's work, does this live up to his previous efforts? Read on and find out.
I personally love comics. I think this is a product of my love of story-telling meeting my love of art. Comics are the perfect amalgamation of these two art forms. For me, finding a comic that I feel passionate enough about to write a post about is something special. However, it is even more special when the people behind the comic approach me to write about it. So, here we have an instance of the latter. What do I think of the comic? Read on and find out.
Some might remember my "Most Anticipated Movies" for 2013, this movie was number 12 on the list. Seems odd that it is this far through 2014, and I am just now getting around to reviewing this movie. Well, Not my fault, the movie was pushed back, and now we are here, and it is time to see if this movie was worth the wait, or if it really put the Sin in Sin City! Read on to find out.
The superhero movie renaissance is upon us. It seems that there is a new film coming out every other week that is somehow superhero or comic book related. Honestly, I'm perfectly OK with that. There are some stinkers in the list but there are also the gems, like this year's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier". Now we wind down the summer with Guardians. How did it do? Read on and find out!
I'm going to say here, that when I created my list of Most-anticipated Movies, this film managed to slip under my radar. I honestly don't remember it showing up in any of my perusals of this years releases. I will admit that had I seen the premise of this movie, as well as the people involved, it would have made it onto the list without hesitation. The question at hand now is... was it a good thing I didn't add it to the list, or was this exclusion a crime against cinema? Read on and find out.
Even when money gets so tight, I worry about paying the car loan, I still find a way to get out there and see the movies. In all honesty, the movies are one of the most simple joys in my life. In the theater, I find a sort of catharsis that is missing in many aspects of reality. Today, I went to see Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. A long-winded title, to be sure... but is this a movie to go ape over? Or is it just a rotten banana? Read on and find out.
