Red Prime Shard: Dora and the Lost City of Gold - Review



So I watched two special double length episodes of Dora the Explorer before going to see the movie Dora and the Lost City of Gold, and I was going to see this movie regardless of the reception since I found it absolutely absurd that Nickelodeon wanted to replicate the videos that CollageHumor made with Ariel Winter that made fun of the idea of a more mature live action Dora the Explorer movie being made.  I was going to see it anyway and I know I would like it ironically just because of those CollageHumor videos and also AOK’s Dora the Grown Up videos, but what I was NOT expecting was the movie to get GOOD REVIEWS and even more so, it’s CERTIFIED FRESH on Rotten Tomatoes!  So I went into this movie even more unexpectedly due to it.

Green Phoenix - Star Wars: A New Hope Review

Image result for A New HopeIt's Star Wars.

I don't think I need to go into too much detail as to the cultural and historical significance behind the first episode in this cinematic saga. It is the first true blockbuster and the film which, along with Jaws, helped to create the modern summer movie season.

After last week's editorial on the Machete Order, I thought it would be fun to examine all of the films in the Order from a critical standpoint. I will be skipping every other week (with the occasional literary suggestion or editorial) and will also have to give myself some time in October for the "Halloween" review season.

So let's start our Star Wars run with the first film in the Machete Order, Episode 4: A New Hope.

VR Troopers Episode 12 Review - No One's Friend



It seems like every episode of VR Troopers is an incursion into insanity. SOMEHOW, Carl Ziktor figures out how to mind control anyone who makes contact with a special Skug. His first victims of this scheme are J.B. and Kaitlin. How are they going to botch this episode? The world will never know...until you watch it or at least read the summary.

Battle Fever J Ep. 1: Assault!! Run to the Ballpark - Summary/Review



Time to look at the 3rd Super Sentai that was at one point considered the first. At first glance, these are the ugliest costumes I've seen in any of these shows, but grow on you. It is dance themed team with each ranger representing a different country. With that in mind, let's take a look at this 1979 episode.

16 Classic Games That Are Coming To Steam. RETRO! REMAKE! REMASTER!


There's a lot on Steam.  Sadly, a lot of the good stuff is buried underneath all of the cheap cash grab games.  There's also a lot of good stuff coming soon to Steam.  This list will cover some of those said upcoming releases.  What's even better is that all of this stuff is retro gaming related.  Here are 16 classic games that are coming to Steam.  Think of reading this list as watching an old gaming VHS full of trailers and a cheesy voiceover. Those are what inspired me to write this list afterall.

Note: Release dates are based on what's written on their Steam pages.  Also, I have included remasters and remakes, not just straight up ports of old games.  (Click on "Read More" to read the full article.)
