A ReView From the Rafters: NXT Takeover – Rival (2/11/15)

February 11, 2015 // 3 Comments

Hideo Itami vs. Tyler Breeze - This match was just added to the card during the pre-show, but I think most of us expected it to be added because there was no way Itami was going to be left off the show. This made sense for the opener and both guys worked hard to deliver a good match. It wasn’t a show stealing performance by any means, but still a good solid opener that made both guys look good. Itami especially shined though. I’m with TVE co-hort Jules in that I’m going to mark out hard when Itami finally hits the Go To Sleep instead of simply teasing it. Great things are on [...]

Book Review: The Art of Destiny

December 31, 2014 // 0 Comments

Insight Editions and Bungie released The Art of Destiny earlier this month for a suggested retail price of $45, but you can get it on Amazon for under $30. It’s a 216 page hard cover measuring 1 x 11.5 x 10.2 inches, with good quality paper. As you would expect from Insight, it is a beautifully put together product. There’s a foreword written by Bungie’s Lorraine McLees. If you enjoy Destiny, then this a book you’ll like. If you just like collecting art books, then this likewise is a book that you’ll like. I write about Destiny every day here on the site, so I [...]

Friday Fast Five Film Reviews (12/5): 22 Jump Street, Lucy, The Family, The Judge, 3 Days to Kill

December 5, 2014 // 0 Comments

It’s Friday, so that means its time for Fast Five Film Reviews. Have the whole spectrum today; comedy, science fiction, drama, and action… something for everyone in theory. Let’s get to it. 22 Jump Street (2014) 22 Jump Street is about as perfect a sequel as one could wish for the screwball farce comedy that its predecessor was. Not a single scene in this movie is played straight. Every single second someone is doing something to remind us that this movie is pointless and does not deserve to be taken seriously, and therein lies its greatness. There’s all sorts of great in [...]

Review: Grand Theft Auto V (PS4)

November 24, 2014 // 0 Comments

Grand Theft Auto V (PS4 [Reviewed], Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, PC) Developer: Rockstar North Publisher: Rockstar Games Genre(s): Open World, Third Person Shooter, First Person Shooter Released: September 17, 2013 (PS3, X360), November 18, 2014 (PS4, XONE), January 27, 2015 (PC) Price: $59.99 ESRB Rating: M – Mature Rockstar wowed the majority of us a year ago when they released Grand Theft Auto V on PS3 and Xbox 360. Even on old hardware, it was an excellent looking game that still looks better than some games released on the new systems. Now that Rockstar has released the game for PS4 and [...]

Friday Fast Five Film Reviews (11/21): The Equalizer, Transcendence, Amistad, Girl Most Likely, & Rush Hour 3

November 21, 2014 // 1 Comment

It’s Friday, and that means that it is time once again for another Fast Five Film Reviews. This time there is four of us (myself, Jules, Brian, and Snowman) and no set genre, so there’ll be a range here from action to thriller and drama to comedy. Jules is up first with two films from this year starring some big name actors. The Equalizer (2014) Official Score: 2 ½ stars Denzel Washington has two different kinds of characters that he is known for (although he does stretch outside the box occasionally) that being sweet, caring, mentors or complete hardasses. This movie supplies [...]
