About me

"My life is very monotonous," the fox said. "I hunt chickens; men hunt me. All the chickens are just alike, and all the men are just alike. And, in consequence, I am a little bored. But if you tame me, it will be as if the sun came to shine on my life. I shall know the sound of a step that will be different from all the others. Other steps send me hurrying back underneath the ground. Yours will call me, like music, out of my burrow. And then look: you see the grain-fields down yonder? I do not eat bread. Wheat is of no use to me. The wheat fields have nothing to say to me. And that is sad. But you have hair that is the color of gold. Think how wonderful that will be when you have tamed me! The grain, which is also golden, will bring me back the thought of you. And I shall love to listen to the wind in the wheat . . ." ~ The Little Prince

The Darkness II Limited Edition review

Posted : 2 years, 11 months ago on 13 September 2014 10:29 (A review of The Darkness II Limited Edition)

This game focused on suping up the combat mechanics pretty much to the exclusion of the development of any other parts of the game. The storyline is much more choppy and forced and you feel less of a drive to actually achieve the character's goals in the story. What actually drives the player most is the high stimulation in the battles that make up most of the game time. To be fair, the fights are FAR more fun than in The Darkness (1), but I am a huge sucker for RPG elements in any gaming experience and I felt more disconnected from the game world and characters than I prefer. Basically every person I've watched play this game immediately starts to skip all of the conversations and cut scenes due to lack of interest. Weak dialogue & npc interaction, no interesting side missions, lack of character building choices that provide a more unique outcome based on player variable. First game had a much better soundtrack, pace and world atmosphere. STILL a fun game though, and I am such a fan of the modern urban horror/sci-fi universe/story aesthetic. MIKE PATTON as your lil gremlin buddy is excellent and was given a much larger spotlight, which admittedly rocks, and was one of the only elements providing effective comedic relief and companionship in the game. Due to the sales being crap I doubt we will see a third installment, but I can't wait to read the original comics that inspired the games.

Pathologic review

Posted : 7 years, 4 months ago on 15 April 2010 06:24 (A review of Pathologic)

Really a very unique game! There is so much suspense, a great atmosphere that creeps under your skin, and such an intriguing story - and yet there is one major major flaw. This being a game originally created in Russian, there needed to be an English translation for the non-Euro release. The translators did a pretty terrible job - and while it is very interesting to try to figure out what everyone is talking about, almost poetically confusing, in the context of playing the game it makes everything a whole lot harder to deal with. If there was a better English translation released I would say this would be a top gameplay recommendation. Still, I have to give it great creativity props.

''You're quite a creepy person, aren't you?''

Predictable and hard to believe, but not horribly executed. As always I found Hugh to be entertaining enough to be worth it.

A good lot of fun fantasy.

Posted : 7 years, 6 months ago on 14 February 2010 09:05 (A review of Ink)

High recommendation. This little storybook of a flick is completely Neil Gaiman and Clive Barker-esk. If you love either of those writers, or fantasy, and touching plot lines - you will enjoy this. Seems a tad low budget but its super nice anyway. Well done, you should give it a watch.

Really dull and dumb - what is this movie even trying to say? bleh. the only way we made it through was by repeating "MY BABIES! MY BABIES!"

YES! YES! YES!

AMAZINGLY AWESOME - YES YES YES! Now I definitely have to read the book. This was alike to Existenz and Videodrome (other Cronenbergians) but even spectacularly better! So stylish and well done. This one has class. ♥

Disappointing outcome to a great project -

Posted : 7 years, 6 months ago on 14 February 2010 08:33 (A review of The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus)

I think Ella T. said it quite well in her review @ [Link removed - login to see] "This is potentially wonderful, if not exactly new stuff, but Gilliam and McKeown's willful refusal of coherent narrative and determination to pack every idea about art they ever had into one scenario, make this fiendishly gorgeous movie more exhausting than exhilarating to watch."

I am a huge Gilliam fan, and I love his loyalty to free-minded art, but he consistently runs into a problem with some of his films in which he has so many artistic visions that he concentrates on the troubles of smashing them all into the film, while the pacing and good solid storytelling get pushed to the side. This movie is chaotic and whips along from scene to scene so whimsically that the characters stay caricatures, and the story is imbalanced, and the audience is not emotionally invested in any of it. The actors were capable, but they were just ripples in the water of this movie, not having the chance of leaving much of an impression. If more care had been given to developing a real journey into this film - something with growth and depth and thought, instead of just being a flit through dreamland with the Kook family, it would have been amazingly wonderful. I wanted to like this movie, but its shortcomings are just to vast for me to do so. Overall, a good try.

A Standout Role for Tucci and an enjoyable film.

Posted : 7 years, 6 months ago on 14 February 2010 08:29 (A review of The Lovely Bones)

I love the actors in this film, and I feel overall it was a really nicely put together film - but all of the parts about the realm of the in-between seemed really imagery-central and didn't really seem like the girl's character was doing very much that was very meaningful or influential there... I don't think the bond she had with the living world was strongly enough established - itsort of seemed like she was just watching the movie like the rest of us, but from her little imaginarium. I'm not quite sure how to constructively criticize the in-between element other than to say it left me feeling unsatisfied.

I REALLY loved Stanley Tucci who played the bad guy - this role was a lot different than anything I've seen him play before and I didn't recognize him at all. I thought he did terrifically! Other actors were all good as well but Tucci really stood out for me.

Better if you know the play well beforehand.

Posted : 7 years, 6 months ago on 14 February 2010 08:26 (A review of Titus)

It was a little hard for me to follow considering this is one that I had not read and studied on my own before watching the film - and the language tripped me up much of the time. I did manage to get the gist of most of what was said, however, and the acting and creativity in the movie were very well done. Anthony Hopkins rules in his usual way, the tortured genius is wonderful.

Let me just say in favor of the film that there is some really awesome imagery - which is actually what drove me to rent it in the first place.

OK I will be honest and say it was mainly because you introduced me to Cobalt Blue Tarantulas, which I find incredible even though I don't like spiders.

It's quite satisfying to know that someone actually reads my little notes - I've been on non-stop good mood (and maybe a little smug too, according to my sister :D) after reading your comments - thank you SO much :)
