The VC E-Book 2024 Edition is out and available for instant download. This year’s edition is ridiculously massive, it’s not even funny. It contains 251 articles spread over nearly 4,000 pages and is...
This film loosely parodies Dracula and Reinfield from The Bram Stoker novel trying to spin some pop psychoanalytic self help into their supernatural master servant relationship.
Every story element in Reinfield is underwhelming, underdeveloped and Frankensteined together in a way that's shallow and forgettable. The action sequences are the only mildly enjoyable part, due to their outlandishness...
My experience playing Starfield was one of initial disappointment followed by a relatively short period of begrudging appreciation which then blossomed into hours open hours of mediocre gameplay in a universe of comfortable dullness.
The world building of Starfield is, from a general perspective, pretty decent. Humanity is spread throughout star systems light years away from earth, factions...
A long slow film with a melancholic tone and forgone conclusion. A narrator guides the audience through the series of events leading up to and after the event the film is named for. The acting and casting are top notch, the subtilty of the character interactions are what makes up for the films unavoidable slow pace and lack of surprises
The action series about aliens was interesting until I realized it was a pretext to show a gay relationship and kisses. I stopped right there. I have little faith in British television after this one.
Warning: Astronomical spoilers ahead!
As soon as They Cloned Tyrone was released on Netflix, the movie was praised as a modern classic. Mixing 1970s Blaxploitation with elements of comedy, horror, and...
This is one of the best games I've seen. The game-play is very fast and engaging but rather difficult. It's a sci-fi themed game with giant robots, with an interesting story about interplanetary companies' conflict with each other and other faction. The subject is the extraction of a valuable resource, the main character plays as a mercenary. There are absolutely no woke elements, the feel of the game...
This is a non-woke movie, pretty funny. There is no diversity! The message of the movie isn't really traditional, but it can be interesting for white young audiences. Is is intended to be a youth movie. There is non-traditional values, though no modern woke stuff!
A funny, corny and goofy, self aware Western genre parody, in mostly good ways; Mel Gibson's character, Maverick, has a recurring trait of throwing out quips decrying whites killing Native Americans and casting Native Americans as completely innocent non- combatants. The three main characters back and fourths with each other are pretty entertaining and funny and most of the film is pretty...
An addictive rpg with a huge amount of content and replayability. Such gems have not been on the gaming market for a long time
Follows a hired killer on the biggest job of his career and the French Law Enforcement who are sniffing for his trail. The Day of The Jackal is a slow methodical film, devoid of any introspection into the minds, motives or feelings of the characters, beyond actions happening on screen. That is probably the biggest strength and weakness of the film, everything feels understated, like every...
I went into the Patlabor film thinking it would mainly be mech on mech action, what I found was a surprisingly relaxing late 80s perspective of a near-future sci-fi criminal investigation film. The plot is laced themes of collective and individual worry about industrialization. Fears of losing the past of a civilization or culture do to rapid technological booms. Biblical references and...
I saw some clips and tweets of The Flash on accompanied by comments saying that it looked and felt like it was made by AI, after watching, I definitely felt a paint by numbers, bare minimum, capesh*t broad stroke running through the production. Its crazy to me how referencial The Flash was able to be, without bringing anything fresh the product's that are it's sources and predecessors.
Oppenheimer is a film that's made for IMAX. Christopher Nolan's effort to make special effects that represent possible imaginings that Robert Oppenheimer may have visualized throughout his schooling/working theorizing the atomic world and nuclear Explosions, accompanied by a dramatic string orchestral musical score for the effect of adding tension and gravity to many frankly static and mundane...
Sound of Freedom is a movie based on the true story of Tim Ballard, a government agent who quits his job in order to rescue children from sex traffickers in Colombia. Directed by Alejandro Monteverde,...
Though It might be the least based of Adam Curtis's documentaries framing wise, it still has an impactful style that comes from the editing together of archive footage and music.

After seeing The Sound of Freedom, I tried to differentiate what was plain fact and what was done for the sake of the film to coalesce events into a single narrative. I listened to the Jordan B Peterson podcast featuring the focus of the film Tim Ballard and Jim Caviezel, who plays him in the film. Tim Ballard more or less says that different events from his career were combined to make...
How do you find yourself today?
A solo physical performance based off a traditional slapstick British puppet show.
The Constable (a.k.a. Policeman Jack)
Joey the Clown
The Hangman (a.k.a. Jack Ketch)
It's 20 minutes of Johnathan Bowden running, jumping around, rhyming and laughing manicilly.
Things that are of note about this adaptation of The Classic Revenge Story were the addition of Napoleon Bonaparte into the plot of the first segment of the film, the decision to Make Edmond Dantes and Fernand friends in an attempt by the screenwriters to make the betrayal delt by the latter more personal. I don't think these changes make the film any better, they just kind of adds more...
