Ghostly Trio: Good Ghost Movies

ZOIKS SCOOOB ITS A GHO GHO GHOOOOOOOOST I love ghosts don’t you like ghosts? Before I start sounding like Jack Fenton and making bad ghost puns, let me just say, these movies are just three I really enjoyed. If you don’t like them, that’s cool. I like movies everyone hates all the time, and that doesn’t take away from how I feel about them. The great thing about all forms of art, is that your own likes and dislikes, are subjective. Now here we go : Insidious(2010) Holy boooooooooooo merang, Batman, this was an enjoyable film. There is something really … Continue reading Ghostly Trio: Good Ghost Movies

Favorite Horror films: 1408

Horror films rock my socks. I used to be terrified but now I am in love with the genre. I believe horror is so primal and deep that it is the primary way of creating compelling characters and to have deep emotional storylines. This is not solely a horror movie thing, but horror often is not held up as the highest art. I have decided to name a few of my favorite horror films here and hope you enjoy. 1408 (2009) An adaptation of a Stephen King short story, this movie follows Michael Enslin(John Cusack) who is a skeptical author … Continue reading Favorite Horror films: 1408

Knock Knock: Disappointing Pizza

I am a fan of Eli Roth, and I was looking forward to seeing Knock Knock. I admit as a young man, the attractive females were a part of the reason I wanted to see the film. But that doesn’t mean that I cannot recognize a good film. Eli Roth however, is a hit or miss kind of guy, in my opinion. I really enjoyed Cabin Fever and thought it was easily his best film I’ve seen that he has directed. I even sort of enjoyed Aftershock, as it was tense and a fast moving ride. I don’t hate dark … Continue reading Knock Knock: Disappointing Pizza

Phoenix Wright: Justice for All Review

Before I continue I would like to issue some corrections to my original timeline of dates for the Ace Attorney series. The Game Boy advance titles came out in the early 2000s and the DS remakes came out in the mid to late 2000s. The visual novel games were also released on multiple platforms including, iOS, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo 3DS, and in the future the Nintendo Switch. The second entry in the Ace Attorney series was released in 2007 for the Nintendo DS and this is the version I played. The series is once again a port of the Game … Continue reading Phoenix Wright: Justice for All Review

Review: Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney

Gyakuten Saiban, or Turnabout Lawyer, was first released in 2001 for the Nintendo DS handheld system in North America as Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. The game was a port of an earlier, Japan only series of light novel games in which you played a rookie defense attorney through various cases. This series has rapidly become one of my favorites of all time. The quirky characters and great music sell it for me. But primarily, the series plays like an interactive novel, and because of this concentrates more highly on the story than the gameplay. This isn’t a recipe that works … Continue reading Review: Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney

Gaming Masala: Elder Scrolls

Gaming Masala is a new blog post type in which I type about certain controversial opinions I have about video games and anything related to video games. First of all, if you disagree with me, I think that’s awesome. I don’t think it reflects poorly on you if we disagree. In fact, I recognize that I often like things others don’t. This means I expect people not to agree with me on some things. I am interested in what you disagree with me about and your reasoning so feel free to comment and rebut. However, I will not tolerate any … Continue reading Gaming Masala: Elder Scrolls

Infinity War and The Last Jedi

I just finished watching a review by one of the movie critics I most enjoy on why he felt mixed about Infinity War. I was baffled at first because he was one of the people I went to because they were in general, a happy movie reviewer. On Youtube, there is a lot of mileage for the disgruntled angry reviewer who is comedic and rips into our favorite movies and video games. It is fun but in the current world I do enjoy watching reviews that help soothe me by being positive. I think that the balance is important. I … Continue reading Infinity War and The Last Jedi

Media mediums and their pros and cons pt 1

Talk about a fun title!! Now in case the title was too vague, which it probably was, I will now explain what I mean by it. Over the history of storytelling, there have been many forms of presenting stories to prospective people, and they have been told in so many different ways. Today we probably think of the different forms of media as written, spoken, visual and combinations of such. However, it gets way more specific when we speak of comics versus novels or TV shows versus movies. How does the medium change the story or the limits of whether … Continue reading Media mediums and their pros and cons pt 1
