As a John Green fan, and someone who originally pre-ordered and read TFIOS, I felt it necessary to see the new movie adaptation. So, a few nights ago I went, on my own, to see it. And even though it’s been out for a while, and everyone and their dog has reviewed it (even if they haven’t seen it), here I present to you my opinion, just in case it matters.
As a tech-head and hacking culture enthusiast, I’ve been waiting with bated breath for Watch_Dogs ever since I heard the concept: a sandbox Chicago where you play as a hacker who leverages the world around him with his hacking skills. However, when Ubisoft released the system requirement for it, I realised I would be waiting a bit longer if I wanted to actually play it. So I made it my mission to find a bunch of games that I could play without upgrading my PC that would give me some of that Watch_Dogs experience.
Because Garbage and their music has become a bit of a cornerstone of my life, I went to their concert this week, and it was the first concert I’ve ever been to. And oh!, what an experience it was! I’m so glad I went, even if some of it didn’t turn out as expected. Continue Reading
So, I like arthouse films. However, I don’t often get to watch arthouse films, for multiple reasons, no the least of which is that they only usually show at arthouse cinemas, which are quite a bit more expensive. However, a while back, a free ticket for one such cinema came into my possession, so the other day, I went and saw an arthouse film. Specifically I saw Safety Not Guaranteed. And, off the bat, I’m going to tell you, I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed it so much, I want you to enjoy it, so this review will be, as usual, spoiler free. Continue Reading
So, over a month ago now, Amanda Palmer released her new album, ‘Theatre Is Evil’. It was crowd-funded through Kickstarter, and I was one of the many who funded it. Below, I present to you a review of the album, as well as a number of comments on the whole process. Continue Reading
So, last week I saw the movie “Savages”. As you may realise, this kind of movie is not the type I would normally see, but I’ve decided I might as well review it anyway. Let me state now that I didn’t like it much, and hence there are numerous spoilers to follow. Continue Reading
So, there’s been Supanova, Armageddon and Oz Comic-Con ( I didn’t get to go to that) this year, and in essence they’re all the same. They’re a weekend-long occasion where a bunch of geeky guys and gals gather together, often in costume, to share their love of comics, anime, TV shows, movies and general pop culture. It’s a commercial event, so there’s always tonnes of stuff to buy, but also things to see and do. In short, it’s great fun. Yesterday I went to the Armageddon Expo, a pop culture and comic convention, with the same friends that came to Supanova. And following the trend, it was quite similar in some way to Supanova, but also quite different. Continue Reading
So, last night I saw the new movie Looper, with a few of my friends. A particular friend of mine and I have always been fascinated in time travel and the possibility of such, so the fact that this movie centres around time travel had us interested. So we went and saw it, and now I have a review for you. As usual, I’ll try and keep it spoiler free. Continue Reading
