The Boxtrolls premieres in September and I could not be more excited about it. Laika, the studio behind the film, has a history of consistently awesome movies (Coraline and Paranorman, to name a few), and their stop-motion animation skills are on a level no one else can hope to touch.

I saw this trailer as one of the many trailers shown before How to Train Your Dragon 2, and was immediately hooked. An adorable Black protagonist, multicolored squishy aliens, and a cat named Pig??? Sign me up. And yes, I’m well aware of my propensity for kids’ films, but this one looks like it’ll be more than worth it.
Although we here in America are getting ready to celebrate our Independence Day, my mind is focused on the future. Not so far in the future that we suddenly have hovercrafts (though, that would be really cool), but the not so distant future where we’re celebrating one of my favorite holidays, Halloween. What can I say? I’ve never been a timely sort of person.
I still really fucking dislike Michael Bay, yet it seems I’ll never be able to escape him.
Maybe my opinion is already clouded by the fact that Michael Bay is behind this, but to me this just looks like Transformers with turtles. And if you don’t know my opinion on the live-action Transformers movies, it’s that we don’t need any more of them.
Assassin’s Creed, Saints Row, Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze: these are just a few of the games on my to-play list, and with E3 coming up next week, that list isn’t going to get shorter any time soon. Despite my lack of time and funds, I’ve been seeing games everywhere that I’d love to play. However, out of fear of turning into one of those Steam users who have hundreds of games that never get played—who am I kidding? I’m already there—I’ve been severely stunting my purchases. This game may break my self-imposed embargo.
While DC’s movie arm dicks around with so-so films and clunky sequel titles, their TV branch seems to be doing something good. Arrow’s second season was significantly better than its first, and that magic seems to have rubbed off on the same-universe spinoff The Flash. Continue reading →
Civilization V is one of my more favorite ways to procrastinate and just altogether waste my time. The other day I found myself thinking, “hey, you know what would make this game better? If it had aliens!”
Coming off the high of Child of Light, I didn’t really expect to see another indie-like game that would catch my interest for a while. Especially with E3 just around the corner, gamers and companies alike are rearing up to either bask in the light of Triple A titles and gimmicks that’ll become more lame after the hype train leaves the station, or huddle in a corner waiting for this all the pomp and circumstance to blow over. I’m incredibly pleased, however, that Never Alone managed to break through right before all the E3 buzz.
