Castlevania anime: a missed opportunity

So I recently watched the first two seasons of the recent Castlevania anime, and I have to say I was pretty disappointed with it. I was expecting it to more or less follow the plot of Dracula's Curse , with Trevor setting out on his epic journey to the castle, meeting and teaming up with his new all...

Re: Joker

Well, I just finished watching Joker, finally, and damn. Have to say I'm pretty much in complete agreement with the Critical Drinker's review of it . (Spoiler warning; he describes the movie's overall plot in detail.) viQXE1QMfVg It's a truly harrowing exploration of mental illness and insanity. You...

Insert bad pun about hindsight here.

Merry Christmas!

Well, it's that time of year again. And while none of you will be surprised to learn that I spent the past hour or two hunting for some very specific topical images, apparently Goji doesn't do Christmas so here we are.

Re: Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker

I am so sorry you had to watch that movie, Corey. I appreciate the sentiment, but it's not necessary. I went with my brother and his family, and a good time was had by all, regardless of the movie's ultimate quality. As a bonus, I got to evaluate it firsthand, as opposed to relying on the informati...

Re: Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker

Well, I went to see the movie tonight, so here's my summarized and spoiler-free opinion of it. I should also note that this could be considered my "first impression", and may be subject to change after I've had time for deeper reflection and/or subsequent viewings. It was actually better than I was ...

Re: Whakaari Eruption

The official toll is currently 15, but this could still climb up higher because of the extent of the survivor's burns. I won't horrify you with the gory details. Yeah, knowing that they'd ordered nearly 1,300 square feet of skin as of three days ago paints a sufficient picture all on its own. Not t...

Re: Whakaari Eruption

Jesus. I'd heard that was bad, but it sounds worse than I'd thought. I'm reminded somewhat of the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens (which I vaguely remember, having been three when it happened), but at least in this case the scope of the destruction will be relatively limited, being contained to an...

Re: Lucasfilm's Kathleen Kennedy: "no source material" for Star Wars

I saw the first four episodes of The Mandalorian tonight, and it's pretty damn good. It makes me feel more optimistic about the upcoming Obi-Wan series. And I'll also continue to stand by Rogue One as having been a terrific movie that beautifully tied together all previous Star Wars media up to that...

Lucasfilm's Kathleen Kennedy: "no source material" for Star Wars

You've probably already heard about this, but it demands a forum thread for posterity because...well, I'll just let it speak for itself. So Rolling Stone published an interview with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy the other day, and the opening paragraph must be read to be believed. Interviewer...

Re: Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker

Who even cares at this point? :| My mind has not changed since I first made this thread. I think Star Wars is done.

Re: "Perfect" 10s

I never give games a 10/10 because I feel that score represents perfection, an ultimate goal to aspire to, but something that will forever remain out of reach. The thought of us humans producing something utterly flawless when we ourselves are hopelessly flawed is a pipe dream. I agree, which is wh...

"Perfect" 10s

If you had to rate every game you've ever played on a scale from 1 to 10, how many would you actually rate a full 10 out of 10? And which ones would they be? Mind you, this does not mean the games in question have to be without any flaws whatsoever. Only that their strengths, in your view, so outwei...
