Video Game Confessions: Jack

Video Game Confessions: Jack

Being a journalism major, and a future journalist, suffice it to say that I get around.  In my travels, I have met some of the most insane characters!  These are the kinds of people that most nerds only dream of seeing, and I have gotten to meet, in the flesh.  And, seeing as how it is late, there is soft jazz music playing, and I am feeling all deep and introspective, I thought that I would tell…

Why No Video Game Heroines? (A Respone to Time Magazine)

Why No Video Game Heroines? (A Respone to Time Magazine)

Yet-again, I come across another article in Time Magazine that perplexes me in how it seems to totally ignore a viable example of something that they are targeting that actually diminishes their position.  In this case, it’s a growing trend of female heroines in teen films.  Their position was that this growing trend says a lot about the changing attitudes of society and film.  However, as…

Top 10 Worst Video Game to Film Adaptations

Top 10 Worst Video Game to Film Adaptations

I made a post not too long ago talking about why the movie that Sony recently announced based on the nigh-perfect game The Last of Us is going to suck (linked here), and it got me to thinking about something.  I genuinely believe that none of the great video games that I love could be made into good films.  Video games are a medium that, while it often aims for being cinematic, is so much more. …

SIONL: Wolf’s Rain

SIONL: Wolf’s Rain

Wolf's RainOne of my favorite anime of all time is the series Wolf’s Rain.  The brilliantly-told tragic story about a group of the last Wolves, trying in vain to reach Paradise.  It is a poignant and heart-breakingly sad tale of loss, loneliness and the cost of living.  However, unlike most shows, this one is very divisive.  People either love or hate it.  The reason they love or hate it is because this is…

SIONR/L: Batman: Arkham Knight Might Suck (but I hope not)

SIONR/L: Batman: Arkham Knight Might Suck (but I hope not)

Up-front, I love the Arkham games.  They finally gave me a video game that made me feel like the Bat.  I even love Origins, which has gotten shit on by a ton of people.  Though, I admit, the reason I love it is Troy Baker’s performance as the Joker.  He nailed it so flawlessly that it did Mark Hamill’s Joker proud.  For real, he took all his cues from that, and it was so awesome.  It was a great…

Real Catholic TV: Reloaded

Real Catholic TV: Reloaded

Anyone who has been following this blog from my early days probably remembers Real Catholic TV and their totally insane host, Mike Voris.  These people are totally insane Catholics who have an unbelievably bigoted approach to life, women and people like me – godless heathens.  I haven’t done a post going after these loony-tunes in a while, and I kind of missed them.  Their videos are so crazy…

Facebook, “Ban Bossy” and Cognitive Dissonance (A Response to Hadley Freeman)

Facebook, “Ban Bossy” and Cognitive Dissonance (A Response to Hadley Freeman)

So, if you’re like me and like to keep up-to-date on current events, so you can actually know why the world is going to shit, then you have been seeing the story about the Facebook COO, Sheryl Sandberg and her mission to “ban bossy.”  A campaign that is about as backwards and filled with cognitive dissonance as is possible.  I haven’t really commented on that, because I didn’t have an angle that…

Lucien’s Review: Noah

Lucien’s Review: Noah

NoahI  want to preface this review by saying that I would never have gone to see a film like this if I had had to pay for it.  I knew from the trailers what my reaction to this movie would be, and I wasn’t disappointed.  Part of me actually was hoping to be surprised by this film, but nope, it lived down to my expectations and then some.  With the director of this movie being a pretty good director,…

Ray Comfort vs. Cosmos - Please Stop

Ray Comfort vs. Cosmos – Please Stop

I recently got done reading an article where Ray Comfort decided that he would jump on the creationist bullshit bandwagon of being against the newest incarnation of “Cosmos.”  Yes, the creationists are getting quite the butthurt about this show, and are doing everything they can to fight back against it.  Such as demanding that their insane and completely unsupported by facts “Theory” gets equal…
