Re: The Horror Movie Lovers Thread

Some recent watches: Kill List : Schizophrenic low-budget British effort seems to change genres every 30 minutes or so - begins as a family drama centered around poverty, morphs into a crime drama about a pair of hitmen and finishes up as horror film with an amazingly dark final scene. Much of the d...

Re: Once Upon a Time In Hollywood

Great film. Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction were two of my favorite movies as a teenager. For some reason Jackie Brown fell flat for me as a 16-year-old and I didn't even bother to finish it - I very much want to give it another chance, especially as its rep has grown over the years. Saw the Kill Bi...

Re: Hotline Miami (Switch/PS4/PS3/Vita/PC, 2013)

@velcrozombie Are you're sure it's free? I checked, and it's sale for about $3, but not free. Sorry. I misunderstood what I was seeing when I saw the game for free while browsing the sale signed in on my PS4. The only explanation that makes sense is that, because I purchased the game on my PS3 prev...

Re: Hotline Miami (Switch/PS4/PS3/Vita/PC, 2013)

A head's up to anyone with a PS4 - Hotline Miami is currently free to download during the current sale on PSN. The sale ends tomorrow on the 16th so I think you have the rest of today and tomorrow to get it - although I'd get on it ASAP in case I'm wrong. If you were ever curious about the game now'...

Re: Goodbye, Neil Peart.

Peart was one of the rare drummers who was so integral to a band that he would often be interviewed alongside Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee whenever they would do a story about the band in the guitar magazines I used to buy. I gained even more respect for him when I began playing drums myself. He's pro...

It actually is quite inaccurate.


Ah, I'll take the L on this - it was a cringe comment anyway.

Re: Star Wars Rise of the Skywalker

The new movie felt like a big-budget, overlong SNL parody. There are isolated scenes that are fun (especially in the first half) but it all just feels so cynical and desperate. I had my issues with The Last Jedi but I've gained new respect for that film after seeing this dumpster fire. Personal Rank...

Re: Favorite Game Over Screens

Symphony of the Night - "Let us go out the evening for pleasure". The gameover screens of the GBA/DS Iga-vanias are also worth a look. These are all great - I almost included the SotN game over but the 3d models used for it haven't aged nearly as well as the others now that I'm seeing the...

Re: Favorite Game Over Screens

Rule of Rose (PS2) has a doozy of a game over screen in keeping with the dark fairy-tale theme - I'll post a still but you really should see it with the animation and voiceover: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gZxAQR4cMN0 I forgot to post this: smaller.jpg Little princess, little princess, Precious...
