DVD Review: Tekken

DVD Review: Tekken
Chalk it up to low expectations, but against the odds, Tekken is a solid, fun video game adaptation. It boasts a likeable cast and energetic direction, but that energy is often misdirected, resulting in some unnecessarily tight and overactive camerawork during fight scenes. Still, while it won’t set...

Film Review: The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec

Film Review: The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec
A picturesque, high-energy romp through Paris and parts beyond, The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec is a wonderfully whimsical fantasy adventure full of thrills, giggles, pterodactyls and talking mummies.

PSN Review: Dungeon Hunter: Alliance
There is a lot of fun to be had with Dungeon Hunter: Alliance; it’s a technically well-made game that does tap into the simple addictive quality inherent in the dungeon-crawling loot-’em-up genre. But like any addiction, there’s the comedown period, and Dungeon Hunter’s comes with its...

Blu-Review: Monsters

Blu-Review: Monsters
Blending a poignant, tender, subtle romance with intelligent sci-fi to amazing effect and somehow achieving A-grade CGI on a miniscule budget, Monsters is a resounding triumph of indie ingenuity...

Blu-Review: Rubber

Blu-Review: Rubber
The killer tyre aspect of the plot might be short on ideas (and the film resorts to a few too many rolling tyre montages), but past the gleefully silly ‘get ‘em in the door’ B-movie premise lurks the most deceptively clever, deliriously weird and amazingly funny movie satire in years...

Blu-Review: Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole

Blu-Review: Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole
The hurried mythology might be overly familiar to adult viewers, but younger kids will likely find this gateway fantasy-adventure movie immediately absorbing, and the stunning visual spectacle and breathtaking action on display in Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole will prove thrilling to...
