    Star Realms and Crisis Expansion Review - The Best Intro Deckbuilding Around

    I don't see that the expansion is available for sale-am I missing something?

    What Happened to Ridley Scott?

    I think that for many people, and this comes out especially with artists, they have something to say early on and then when they finally get to say it, and everyone goes "Yup!" then they get successful. Which is awesome, right? Artists need to eat. Except that most artists then lose touch...

    Unskippable: Asura's Wrath, Part 3 - Exercising the Right to Bare Arms

    Oh no. No. I see Metal Gear has been evoked. Do not go down that dark path.

    Is The Grand Budapest Hotel Wes Anderson's Best Film Yet?

    It may be just me, but I would have rather seen this film reviewed in Escape to the Movies, than Need for Speed. Just from the written description, it seems more interesting to talk about.

    Transformers: Age of Extinction Trailer Deconstructed

    Sorry, but no; fuck everything about this film. It will take the resurrection of Christ and Budda and their personal guarantee that this movie is good for me to even consider spending money or time on it.

    The Big Picture: Why Robocop Still Rules

    This was pretty cool. I am old enough to have seen RoboCop in the theater (Dad took me) and it was a hell of a film, even then. MovieBob's examination of the movie is pretty good (although I would have liked to have seen more examples of the smart decisions they made-contrast with some other...

    The Big Picture: Stars, Worn

    I felt like the biggest problems with the original trilogy were: 1) Give the fans what you think they want and 2) Telling a story we already know the ending to. I don't care what Anikin did before he became Vader. Focusing on Obi-Won might've worked but nope. So: The new trilogy...

    Capcom: Our Resident Evil Gamer Fanbase Is Too Old

    Of course it's not Capcom's fault! It's just the inexorable march of time that forced upon them low sales. Not the fact that they sold a game called Zombie Puncher, instead of Resident Evil.

    Unskippable: The Last of Us, Part 1

    Good luck having fun with the joke at the end of part II's cutscene...

    A Human Day

    I could get used to these kinds of excursions. You exercise the story muscles pretty well.

    Let's Talk About the Ending of Frozen

    I have no idea what you're on about. I am suggesting that MovieBob-and others-not write spoiler-related/keyed articles until a pleasantly defined length of time so people have an opportunity to experience whatever media they're on about, instead of having them appear the day of the media's...

    Let's Talk About the Ending of Frozen

    Can we make a deal where you WON'T write spoiler articles until at least TWO WEEKS AFTER a film or TV show's major debut? Because seriously. This is stupid.

    I like how Derrick wasn't really harmed, just changed.
