Godzilla 2014 Review:

History shows again and again how nature points out the folly of men….Godzilla! -Blue Oyster Cult Hoi there Chummers! Whether you know him as Godzilla or Gojira, the Big G has been entertaining folks on both sides of the Pacific ocean for 60 years now. Like other long lived characters like Doctor Who and James Bond the fertile creative minds of the 1950s-60s were able to create characters that still live in the imaginations of folks everywhere.

Cook, Serve, Delicious Review [Android]

Irasshaimase! Y’know, ever since I was a kid I dreamed of owning a restaurant. Burgers or Sushi, any type would be fun.

It’s a difficult thing to recommend a game but to tell people not to watch any of it before playing but that’s exactly what I must do. A lot of the … Continue reading Jazzpunk Review

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Review

Recommended: Yes Captain America: The Winter Soldier was better than it really had any right to be, delivering a satisfying spy thriller and modern action film. Though I am a big fan of Joe Johnston’s work (The Rocketeer is on my top 10 of all time favorite films) the first film felt a bit like it suffered from being overstuffed with foreshadowing for the Avengers, like Iron Man 2 before it. Not super memorable compared to that series of films but with a solid hero, it wasn’t clear how Captain America was going to mesh with a comic universe with … Continue reading Captain America: The Winter Soldier Review
