  • For some reason, I felt like going through a bunch of Jet Li's English-language output recently. Most of it really isn't very good, but one of them managed to deliver a satisfying experience even so. Romeo Must Die (2000) is the first time Jet Li …
  • Blade Runner 2049 (2017) does justice to the original and expands its world effectively. It's not doing well because studio executives forgot that the original movie wasn't a hit upon release, but box office has no relation whatsoever to quality. …
  • I admire Darren Aronofsky's nerve in getting Mother! (2017) thrown into wide release. I almost wish I'd seen it with a crowd full of people who didn't know what they were getting into, as seeing genuine walk-outs would have been a unique experience…
  • How about some results? Yes, let's have some. Especially since we have a rare tie this time. Yakuza Kiwami 452 23.41% Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana 452 23.41% Xenoblade Chronicles 2 424 21.96% Etrian Odyssey V 251 13.00% South Park: Th…
  • Legend (1985) disappointed me. I expected the one and only fantasy movie Tom Cruise has ever appeared in to be something interesting, especially when Ridley Scott directed it. The movie does look good, no denying that. It's surprisingly boring th…
  • I didn't either. Some enemies are extremely high in level compared to you when first encountered, but you can come back much later and they won't have changed.
  • What I'm seeing and hearing is similar to the Adventures of Mana remake we got not too long ago. Since I enjoyed the underlying Secret of Mana more than I did Final Fantasy Adventure, I have no problem with this. Also, no, spending a long time in …
  • Whether movies are still worth seeing in the cinema is a personal judgment. I go there frequently because the experience is distinct from watching something at home. Plenty of lousy movies have always been released no matter when you look in cinem…
  • Drive Angry (2011) is over the top and ludicrous. It's also a lot of fun if you're prepared for that. Our setup is that Nicholas Cage plays John Milton, who escaped from Hell itself to go after a cult that's going to sacrifice his granddaughter. …
  • Street Trash (1987) gets points for originality. It also succeeded in making me feel disgusted, not an easy thing to do. So for a certain audience of people who want disgusting humor, this deserves to be known. I did laugh some of the time, but w…
  • Shin Godzilla (2016) is like no other Godzilla movie ever made. I'm certainly glad to have seen it, but never did I expect so much dialogue. This is, in a way, like an Aaron Sorkin-written show with the amount of conversation happening. Even thou…
  • Time for some ... rather interesting results, actually. PS3 605 17.67% PS2 572 16.71% Vita 562 16.42% PS1 556 16.24% PSP 331 9.67% PS4 318 9.29% SNES 295 8.62% PC 104 3.04% 3DS 57 1.67% GBA 23 0.67% Total Votes 3423…
  • Ah, Commando (1985). It takes place in a universe no one can possibly construe as reality. Which is probably why it's so much fun. It's one of the purest Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicles out there. Sure it's full of violence, especially in the clim…
  • What the hell, Valkyria Revolution? Something went wrong and my side weapons (guns and grenades) weren't working, plus magic was... maybe working? Hard to tell, damage was accruing for some spells but the usual animation effects were missing. I'v…
  • Bug (2006) is a strange creature, I'll give it that with no qualms. Scripted by the same man who wrote the stage play, and directed by William Friedkin, it also doesn't feel like a filmed play. Things move around and the actors don't just stand th…
  • Never having played Sonic the Hedgehog on Game Gear before, I kind of liked the unique aspects to its areas. I didn't like some other things, such as a ridiculous programming glitch that lacks a third digit when collecting rings that reverts to 0 w…
  • Kinda glad I didn't volunteer for this one. Considering how long it can take to reboot a crashed game on the Vita, in fact I'm very glad.
  • There will be a review for 3 as well, but I have to finish it first. The localization is indeed worse in this one though, at times looking like someone just did auto-translate without checking afterward. That bug where impassable tiles can't be fi…
  • Valkyria Revolution is a weird thing. Combat is kind of fun, but unless I make a point to fiddle around with free missions the cut scenes dwarf it in game time. That means I have to focus on someone who makes for the least engaged Grim Reaper I've…
