After Watching This One… You’ll Cringe at the Sight of a Turkey Baster!
Man this is one of the most well paced thrillers that I’ve seen in some time. I honestly believe the majority of movie goers will very much enjoy this movie. Don't Breathe is presented as somewhat of a simplistic thriller composed of (you guessed it) simple elements. But it’s the ways in which these elements are used and executed that make for some of the most suspenseful cinema that you’ll experience in 2016.
While Mass Effect is almost double digits in age, it still plays like a young game
This past week has been a joy for me, I’ve finally had a chance to sit down and play the first Mass Effect. I’ve owned this game for at least 3 years (it came highly recommended from my friend FixXxer, who does podcasts on a wide range of subjects, link at the end of this piece) and only I ever managed to put a couple hours into it over the first days. I remembered that the makers of Mass Effect, BioWare also made the amazing Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic so I knew this was the type of RPG (Role Playing Game) that needed many an hour. So, since this week Mags went on a girl’s holiday to Marrakech, I took time off and finally played Mass Effect the way it’s meant to be played: full immersion.
James DeMonaco is back for the 3rd time as writer and director of The Purge, this time with Election Year sadly seems to be set up to be the final movie of the trilogy, hells yea I'm disappointed because even though I tip my hat when they stop with a franchise at its peak before ruining it, I was also looking forward to more anxious filled movies of this series.
The Purge: Election Year is centered around a Senator, Charlie Roan (that wants to be elected to finally put an end to the yearly Purge madness - go Charlie!), her security man Leo (you might remember him from being the hero of The Purge: Anarchy), and a few more groups of people that either want to keep this tradition or get rid of it.
Last night I finally watched Sausage Party and it didn’t disappoint, all the way through the movie I had a smirk on my face and the laugh out loud moments were plentiful. Until the end of course... Raised eyebrows, wide open mouth and unblinking eyes was all I could master for that... Yeah... the last scene gave me a new wrinkle on the forehead...
