    The Big Picture: American Sniper Sucks (And It's Okay To Admit That)

    I respect everyone's right to disagree, but I don't think it was a bad movie. As I have said in other posts, it resonates with me. I found something familiar in it and it was something I knew that many people wouldn't understand. I'm not saying you can't have an opinion on it, but you don't...

    Unskippable: Far Cry 4 - This Won't Get Weird

    Point of contention, Graham- Those of us from Upstate New York* are rather famed for our non-regional diction. A lot of news anchors come to our area to lose their accents. So while we may be as snooty as faux British royalty, we don't sound like it. *For clarity, upstate New York generally...

    Escape to the Movies: American Sniper - An Empty War Film

    I guess this film just resonated with me more than its detractors. I'm perfectly fine with a no thrills, realistic representation of Kyle's life; I saw something in it I recognized and I realized that most people wouldn't. I get that people want to find a bigger meaning, that they want the movie...

    A Note From Your Friendly Neighborhood Editor in Chief

    I guess this is what getting old feels like: watching old friends "pass away". Russ and Steve and Susan and Jim and Paul and Greg and any number of others we've lost over the years were my little internet friends who said things that made me laugh and wrote things that made me think. When they...

    Video Games and Ancient Egypt: We've Barely Cracked the Sarcophagus

    I absolutely love this article. I felt very much the same way growing up. I was fortunate to see Tutenkhamon as he was traveling around the US when I was 3 or 4 and I have loved Egyptology ever since. Pharaoh still remains one of my favorite games though I would love a version when modern...

    Star Wars: This Is How You Defend The Ridiculous Crossguard Lightsaber

    Trust me, man. You're not alone. I don't know- it may be because Star Wars has targeted children with their media for the past 10 years (Clone Wars, Rebels, etc) but I think there are parts in this trailer designed to make a 10 year old say "Thish ish shoooo coooool!" while adults go "Uggh" I...

    No Right Answer: Best Mel Brooks Movie

    I can honestly say, after seeing all of his movies, I've never seen a Mel Brook's movie I didn't like. I didn't love all of them, but yes even Twelve Chairs I enjoyed. It's a great story and it's well acted. Not the best, but not a bad movie.

    I was happy... then I saw the comment... now I am sad.

    Escape to the Movies: Fury - Tank You Very Much

    8 weeks of Bootcamp and 2 weeks of Combart Arts training before a deployment is "countless hours?" Look, it's ok to be against war and even as you have pointed out, to highlight the mental health issues of soldiers in combat and in coming home. Speaking as someone who has struggled with this...

    Next Year You Won't Need Cable to Watch HBO

    Oh, hi there HBO! Where have you been? We've been waiting for you for like 7 years. You're a little late to the party, but let me introduce you to some friends of mine. Here's Netflix, he's always a great guy to have around if you're not too picky. Have you met Hulu? You look like you two would...

    Five Clans, Five Magic Decks for Khans of Tarkir

    The whole prerelease weekend, I kept calling Abzan "Azkban", called Temur Tamerlane (Timur the lame), Mardu I called Marduk, Sultai was Mai Tai, and Jeskai was Just Kidding or J/K. It's nice to see some one else got the joke. I wish I had the money to get the cards in these decks =\. I suppose...

    Build Scenes, Not Encounters

    This is an opinion piece. The author can mention anything their heart desires so long it helps to express their opinion. This isn't a news article. If you seriously see the mere mention of a game system as a shameless plug, just wow. Stop looking for shadowy cabals in the real world and remember...

    Bill Murray Fancasts His Preferred Female Ghostbusters Team

    I've been on the Pohler/Fey/McCarthy/Wiig train for a Ghostbusters movie ever since they announce a possible twist. The only addition I'd make would be Mindy Kahling, I think you could do like they made Tully an honorary member for the second movie.

    The Duck Tales Theme, Now With Real Ducks

    I.. There.. no words.. ducks Ok some words. Disney needs to release season 4 of Duck tales on DVD or the whole series on Blu-Ray. It's killing me that I don't have the last season.
