    The Double turned up on Netflix, and I found it a quietly, surprisingly great watch. It's a B-movie great, but the reviews and comparisons I read did not do it justice. There isn't a "can you...

    Titanfall is great, and is getting strong support, but the player base is dwindling. All it needs to be an "all day" shooter instead of "once a week" is a longer playing objective mode with 20+...

    Huge huge patch. It's impossible to call the new meta-game this soon, but the early game is obviously less pushy, late game is more comeback friendly, river control is more important, offlane is...

    Maybe not. I honesty don't really know, but perhaps this isn't quite the right question to ask.

    It isn't good the way Space Rangers or SPAZ or SOTS are, but it is more than a bit different. If...

    Not having read the book, that was still the sort of impression I got, that all the inspiring quirky Neil Gaiman-ness of it had been worn down and filed off in order to sell it to the general public....

    Stardust is on Netflix. It was less interesting and surprising than I would expect from an adapted Neil Gaiman story, but I enjoyed it as a bit of fairytale satire. The leads are all good,...

    I'm sad to say that I didn't really like Echopraxia. It is poorly motivated and wanting for better scenarios, characterization, and plot. Too much of it is an addendum/rejoinder of B-side elements...

    I read Blindsight, by Peter Watts, for the 5th time, in anticipation of the sequel coming out next week. It can't be as gripping as the first read of course, but I still love this book. The writing...

    I just saw Guardians of the Galaxy. It was ok. Watchable, moderately fun, but not very interesting. The trailers turned me off and the film lives up to that level of corny and dumb material. I...

    Since Robin Williams passed, I watched The Fisher King on Netflix. The script is lousy, Jeff Bridges is unconvincing, and Terry Gilliam reuses all his favorite directorial tricks to little effect. ...

    I've watched Smilla's Sense of Snow three or four times since its late 90's release. An understated murder mystery thriller with overtones of X-files and quietly developing intrigue. Good casting...
