  • Movie Review: Inception

    Chris Nolan’s “Inception” sets its own rules and, most importantly, stays true to them. It does not throw nonsensical curveballs at the audience, and unlike his earlier “The Prestige”, it does not cheat. The temptation to... More
  • Movie Review: Predators

    I've been busy for a while, so I thought I'd drop back in and leave off a couple recent reviews. Predators When you go to a movie like “Predators”, you kind of know what to expect. There is a kind of monster movie in which suspense... More
  • Is GameStop Evil (Part 3 of 4) Trade In Policy…

    See…this is why I said in my Blogging for Dummies blog – “never do a series”. Don’t get me wrong, the views and responses have been fantastic, but it takes a toll on you after awhile, especially when it’s such a serious... More
  • Backing Up Games: Is it Legal?

  • Roger Ebert- The Gameophobe

    8 So here is Roger Ebert once again bashing something he knows nothing about. Except for this time he does not reference games as not being art, instead he makes terrible... More
  • Music, anyone?

    I have to say I am one of the biggest music geeks out there. My life pretty much revolves around my music. I''ve had the same band be my favorite band since 7th grade. That band is Avenged Sevenfold and my avatar is a picture of their recently... More
  • Screw art, I just want to play.

    *Cracks fingers* Ok, my first (real) blog post, and I'm ready to rant. Here I go. Roger Ebert and Rex Reed, what do they have in common? A lot of things apparently, most notably, they're grouchy, hate video games, and are professional movie critics... More
