You're probably wondering what has happened to me if you're reading this. Have I gone on a holiday, been abducted by aliens or become deceased. Well the two last ones aren't that far off. I've in fact been busy working with assembling a Dungeons & Dragons group. Learning the rules of D&D and trying to create my own D&D adventure. And it's hard as balls let me tell you.
Heroes of Might and Magic has always been a puzzling franchise to me and the fifth game in the series is no exception. Heroes of Might and Magic V is a turn based game that goes into a turn based (very turn based) combat system when you meet enemies in similar fashion to the Total War series.
Deus Ex is often claimed to be the best game in computer game history. Personally I agree but it's not without it's problems. Join me while I take a look at this critically praised title.
Minotaur is a film about, what else... The Minotaur. The film does a lot of things right with the movies, explains the premise really well and the premise itself is also very appealing, but for being a thriller I do have some thoughts on it's execution.
Kick-Ass is yet another superhero ordinary hero movie. This one takes the serious turn however and focus on the struggle of Dave Lizewski in his quest to become a super hero. After getting beat up in the first day of the job he gets a couple of metal plates implanted in him and a worse nerve system: resulting in him being able to take more pain than regular people.
This is a movie about an underground laboratory where a couple of scientists are researching an ancient artifact for a private corporation. A group of mercenaries are sent down to try to get the situation back in control but it's far too much for them to handle and they come across a couple of escaped human test subjects instead.
Mystery Men is a satire of superheroes. The greatest superhero ever known Captain Amazing has a dozen sponsors who sponsor his crime fighting. He has a PR-manager and his own limousine. Sadly he is a little too effective at eradicating crime in his city so he decides to free a terrifying super villain known as Casanova Frankenstein. Casanova manages to capture Cpt. Amazing and it's up to a handful of wannabe superheroes to try to rescue him!
Zombieland is a clear favourite of mine. It's meant to be a sort of satirical film about Zombie apocalypse films. However it doesn't satirize that much in my opinion.
Infestation is a movie that tells a "what if" story about a bug apocalypse happening to the world. Our protagonist Cooper is a fairly regular person without any talents whatsoever and he teams up with the daughter of his (now former) boss, a deaf muscle-mountain named Hugo and a couple of other good characters.
300's focus is clearly set on Epic. I have seen several scenes from 300 before and some of the "good bits" have been spoiled for me so keep that in mind.
