    Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright

    Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright

    Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright is a game for the Nintendo 3DS that was released in Japan in 2012 and eventually released to the rest of the world in 2014. Having been a fan of both Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright, this game really peaked my interest. Even though their games are so different, they shared a fan-base and even before this game was in the works.

    Mick Foley is Now a WWE Smackdown on the Comedy Circuit

    Mick Foley is Now a WWE Smackdown on the Comedy Circuit

    Long before WWE Smackdown became a thing, Mick Foley got his first full-time wrestling job in 1988. Comfortable in the tights as “Cactus Jack,” he soared the heights as WWE’s “Mankind.” Earning three belts, Foley joined wrestling lore in his epic battle against “the Undertaker.” Literally taking flight off a caged structure, he rose to finish despite being knocked unconscious and completing the match with a tooth wedged in his nose. Nonetheless, when finally succumbing to age, retirement gave him the chance to write a bestselling memoir, which resulted in a profession that could quite possibly rival that 16-foot dive off the “Cell from Hell” in 1998.

    The Wonder in 'Wonder Woman'

    The Wonder in 'Wonder Woman'

    Wonder Woman. A name that holds the provocative power of inspiration and awe. And thankfully the film adaptation with the same branded misnomer was able to evoke that same set of emotional gravitas I'd wished (and believed) the DC Extended Universe had inside it all along. And wow, what a breath of fresh air Wonder Woman was. Like its namesake, the film had an attraction that merited a wonder at how such a refreshing product found its way among the dry hardboiledness of the DCEU. Having all the hallmarks of the heroes' journey, the origin of WW is given believable life via the experienced acting performances of Robin Wright and Chris Pine, with a stream of fresh (and necessary!) blood by Gal Gadot as the titular character and a sans-Snieder directing quality by Patty Jenkins.

    Tate Donovan Switches TV/Film Gears for Broadway

    Tate Donovan Switches TV/Film Gears for Broadway

    Tate Donovan landed his first major film credit alongside John Cryer and Demi Moore in the 1984 comedy No Small Affair. He followed the introduction up with larger roles in Space Camp, Clean and Sober and Memphis Belle. Off those successes, Donovan co-starred in his first leading role with Sandra Bullock in Love Potion No. 9, and has built a career that has kept him busily bouncing between films such as Swordfish and The Pacifier and TV stints on Friends, Ally McBeal, The OC and Damages. In June, he follows up his 2010 Broadway run on the Southie based drama Good People with something that he tongue-in-cheek considers contemporary.

    Roxanne, Pratfall-A-Rama and What Might Have Been

    Roxanne, Pratfall-A-Rama and What Might Have Been

    Why don’t I love “Roxanne” anymore? The Steve Martin-Darryl Hannah comedy is turning 30 years old this week and will be featured on this week’s I Hate Critics movie review podcast which is being dedicated to the work of Steve Martin, featuring a Steve Martin Top 5 and “The Jerk” as this week’s I Hate Critics Undisputed Classic. So, of course, I watched “Roxanne” and the film left me only mildly amused at best, deeply disappointed at worst.

    Me and Cinema...It's Complicated

    Me and Cinema...It's Complicated

    Like many of you, I like going to the movies. What a shocker...(a little-known secret I also enjoy other things like watching television and stuff like that but don't go around letting anyone). I connect some special and fun memories with cinema, and movies in general; from sleepovers with friends where we saw utter garbage like "Superhero Movie", "Disturbia", and those nights where we saw movies that completely changed my mind like "Fight Club" (yeah I know that this makes me a basic bro...but I really love it). Same can be said about those lazy Sundays where me and my family just potato couched our way into all sorts of genres.
