Ah yes, film adaptations of video games. These should hold up well.Continue reading “Thoughts on Mortal Kombat (1995) and Mortal Kombat: Annihilation”
I was made aware of this project’s existence roughly two weeks ago. Seeing a gameplay video that chronicled the entirety of the demo’s length, I was immediately sold on the premise. Metroid Prime, only on a 2D plane, worked on by fans of the franchise who hope to innovate as much as replicate. Apparently, it’s been worked on since 2004(!!!), and the fruits of their labor comes in the form of a 20-30-minute demo. It took me a little while to get around to it, but I’m really glad I did. It ended up being a very encouraging (and very rough) appetizer.Continue reading “Thoughts on Metroid Prime 2D (Demo 0.1.21.4.1A)”
This could be titled “Updated Thoughts on Metroid Prime 2: Echoes” since I have beaten this before. Though given it’s been many, many years since I’ve done so, I figure I’ll look at this from a fresh perspective. It’d benefit the game for me to do so, after all—my childhood impressions of this were less than thrilling.Continue reading “Thoughts on Metroid Prime 2: Echoes”
Something nice happened this year. Due to the graciousness of a dear friend of mine, I was able to watch every film nominated for Best Picture this year. That marks the first time in this blog’s far-too-long history that I managed to do so, despite my best efforts (being frugal can be limiting). As such, expect a much longer ranking post this year, as I also managed to squeeze in a couple extra films nominated for other awards I’d like to discuss.Continue reading “Ranking The Oscars 2021 Best Picture Candidates (+ Some Extras)”
Last month, I made a pitifully vague and uninteresting post about this wonderful and super cool film. Won’t even link it—hate it that much. I have now re-watched it, so to repent for my lazy sins, this will be dedicated to actually sharing my thoughts on this.Continue reading “A Real Review of Columbus (2017)”
Sometimes the urge to revisit a familiar source is so strong that you end up reading 84 chapters (spanning 25-30 pages) over a three-day period. Ah, just like the old days.

Shockingly enough, I have not watched a ton of garbage this month, which is normally something I like to do from time to time. Watching good films is great, don’t get me wrong. But for a trashy connoisseur like me, nothing hits quite like a really, really bad film. So I decided to watch this.
It was disappointing.Continue reading “Day Thirty: Dragonball Evolution (MotM 2021)”
Thought about labeling this with its English name… but if I’m gonna commit to labeling anime in their Japanese-English forms, may as well provide the same courtesy, if applicable.Continue reading “Day Twenty-Nine: El Día de la Bestia (MotM 2021)”
