Review: MVP Baseball for the PSP

June 03, 2005 at 07:45 PM

MVP Baseball for the PSP is a good but not great game and the majority of reviews agree. The game's release date was pushed back several times, but a lot of flaws (some glaring) remain. A lot of untapped potential that will hopefully make next year's iteration of the game a great one. The gameplay and graphics are pretty decent, though I'm still getting used to hitting with the PSP's analog stick. I had... Continue reading

Review: Collateral

January 08, 2005 at 12:44 PM

Collateral was better than I thought it would be. I had my doubts about whether they could keep the plot going for the entire movie, but they manage to do it pretty well. Fortunately they actually kept the it reasonable that the cab driver didn't just drive off and leave the hitman. Jamie Foxx is the best character in the movie, Tom Cruise is more of an accessory. The main plot revolves around Cruise... Continue reading

Review: Garden State

December 29, 2004 at 10:25 AM

Great freaking movie. Zach Braff is officially my favorite actor right now, he really should be in more stuff. First Scrubs and now this, I officially have a totally heterosexual man-crush on the guy. The dude even has his own blog on TypePad. If I was lame and bored and had time on my hands I would totally start a Zach Braff fan site, but fortunately for my street cred I'm only two of... Continue reading

Halo 2 and Xbox Live own me

November 18, 2004 at 10:25 AM

In case you didn't know it, Halo 2 freaking rocks. I've always claimed that I hated first-person shooters, a claim based mainly on despising GoldenEye (the multiplayer was fun though), Metroid Prime, and the original Halo. I sucked hardcore at all three of those games and they actually made me physically sick to play them for too long. So obviously I wasn't overly excited about picking up Halo 2 when it came out, but I... Continue reading

Review: Pat Green's Lucky Ones

November 11, 2004 at 09:22 PM

I already love this CD. I would say I like every single song except for one ("Sweet Revenge" is his apparently obligatory Cajun-sounding song), and even it's not too bad. It's just a great album filled with several different styles of songs, all pretty damn good. "Lucky Ones" is probably his best recent album and will likely have the most commercial appeal of any of his albums. It's definitely still Pat, but he's come... Continue reading

Review: The Perfect Score

November 01, 2004 at 07:17 PM

It was the only thing we remotely wanted to see from Blockbuster. There's just not many good movies out on DVD right now. I guess most of the summer blockbusters are still a ways from coming out on DVD. The movie was decent, especially considering it's from MTV Films. The storyline is decent, but not very original. There's some funny lines, but overall the dialog is lacking. There's worse movies out there I guess,... Continue reading

Review: Friday Night Lights

October 16, 2004 at 12:22 PM

Christina and I went to see "Friday Night Lights" last night, it was entertaining and pissed me off at the same time. The H.G. Bissinger book the movie is based on is easily one of my all-time favorites, I read it several times while I was in middle school and high school. The book does an amazing job telling the story of the Permian High School football team and it's players, but it's just... Continue reading

Review: Jersey Girl

September 29, 2004 at 11:14 AM

The first thing you should know about Jersey Girl is that it was written and directed by Kevin Smith. Okay, now forget I ever told you that. If you go into this movie expecting a classic Kevin Smith film such as Mallrats and Chasing Amy, you are going to be immensely disappointed. Jersey Girl is a good movie, but it's not a good Kevin Smith movie. The movie has a cute (see, not exactly... Continue reading

Review: The Ladykillers

September 27, 2004 at 12:15 PM

The Ladykillers is a movie that confused and intrigued me from the very first preview I saw. I wanted to see it when it came out in theaters, but not so bad that I ever actually got around to it. Considering I didn't really know what to expect out of the movie, it actually turned out to be exactly what I expected. What the hell does that mean? It means the movie itself is... Continue reading

Review: Troy

May 29, 2004 at 05:08 PM

Homer's story of Achilles and the Trojan War, the Iliad, is known throughout the world, but movies about the tale have thus far only been of the television variety. Wolfgang Petersen's Troy attempts to be an epic in the Gladiator mold but in the end comes up short. Poor casting and a slow start doom the movie. It recovers slightly as the film goes along, but can never quite overcome it's beginnings. It's probably... Continue reading

Review: Gothika

April 28, 2004 at 11:14 AM

Rating: 3.5/5Get it from! Very good movie. It wasn't really a horror movie like I was expecting, but more of supernatural thriller. That's a good thing. Halle Berry plays a psychologist at a prison/mental institution who suddenly wakes up as a patient at her own facility. She spends the whole movie trying to discover what's happened and convince people of her innocence. It's well acted, 90% of the movie is focused on Halle (not... Continue reading

Review: Kill Bill Vol. 2

April 24, 2004 at 11:29 PM

Rating: 4/5Get it from! Another good movie. Well another good half of a movie, since it doesn't really stand on it's own. I liked this one a little better than the first, it had more of a storyline and more comedy to go with about the same amount of action. There was only one part that I didn't like. Bleep's training was lame, it seemed like a 1970's kung fu movie, only without the... Continue reading
