Chelsea looks into the season seven finale of Doctor Who and whether it managed to salvage a roller coaster of a season in terms of quality. Vastra, Jenny, Strax, and River Song join the Doctor and Clara on their last big adventure (for now): to see the grave of the Doctor himself. When his friends are captured by mysterious enemies, the Doctor is willing to visit the place he should never go and face the Great Intelligence. Clara’s mystery is solved, and we’re introduced to a strange new character played by a very welcome face.
The Hangover (2009) introduced us to one of the funniest buddy comedy casts ever. The Wolfpack returns in The Hangover Part III, but this time the formula that was repeated in Part II and earned the franchise so much critical derision is abandoned in favor of a tale that spins off of the events in the previous movies but does not simply ape them.
It’s been a long winter, and as soon as it starts getting warm, I think of the summer. And with summer comes True Blood. On June 16th the show will be back for its sixth season, but they didn’t want to make their fans wait too long. We got the DVD and Blu-ray releases of True Blood The Complete Fifth Season out, so it’s time to close out the sun, lock ourselves in an underground facility with a pack of half-mad vampires, and hope Sam Merlotte isn’t looking to kill any of us. Because damn does he know how to make something hurt. Let me get my sweet tea and sway to the sound of “Bad Things” by Jace Everett.
Within just a few minutes of viewing Bullet in the Face for the very first time, it became very clear to me what I could expect from this show. Stylised over-the-top acting (complete with cliched accents), excessive violence, morbid humour and a psychotic lead character are all key ingredients to this very quirky yet strangely enjoyable meal.
The crew of the USS Enterprise returns for further big screen adventures with the latest installment in the franchise: Star Trek Into Darkness. Directed by J.J. Abrams, this new story in the Trek universe focuses on a threat that hits close to home, and forces the intrepid group of explorers to face their deepest fears. Star Trek (2009) had set the bar so high that it was hard to not to walk into the sequel without raised expectations.
Phoenix Wright is a novice lawyer who obviously has potential but his bumbling nature and his tendency to get overwhelmed by new facts and evidence stop him from achieving greatness, while his rival Miles Edgeworth is cool and collected and seems to have every possible angle covered before any trial, as his perfect win record shows.
The series begins with a mysterious explosion at the X-Men’s school, and the actions pick up a year later with Senator Kelly’s Mutant Response Division (MRD) forces waging a war against mutants. Wolverine begins reforming the now disbanded X-Men when a new and more serious threat emerges as Xavier sends news from the future of a very dire apocalypse taking place that Wolverine and the X-Men must try to prevent.
By Jachelle Overstreet, Reporter The Walking Dead premiered on AMC on Halloween of 2010 and has been gaining popularity ever since. Thanks to my crippling terror of all things zombie related, I responded with a firm HELL TO THE NO, and have stayed as far away from the series as I could. However, lately my [...]
by Emil and Mike Favila, Reporters I just had the pleasure recently of playing the new Star Trek game by Namco. For this review, I was provided the PS3 version. The story is based in the universe of the 2009 reboot by J.J. Abrams (Lost, Alias). In the game, you work together with either [...]
by Mike Favila, Reporter I love playing poker, and I love video games, so this should have worked out quite well. (No Asian jokes please!) Poker Night 2 is Telltale Games’ next entry in the series. I got to play the PSN version for this review. Like it’s predecessor, your character plays in first [...]
The Invincible Iron Man returns to the big screen for his latest solo adventure in Iron Man 3. After the events of Marvel's The Avengers, our armored hero hasn't quite been the same. It's hard to blame Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr – The Avengers) for being a little off after teaming up with a Norse God, a monster, a living legend, and a couple of spies to fight off an alien invasion. Stark better get his act together quickly, because a new terrorist threat has emerged, and it will soon be up to Iron Man to save the day! Taking cues from the fan-favorite "Extremis" storyline, Iron Man 3 is the perfect way to get "Phase Two" of the Marvel Cinematic Universe into motion!
Chelsea and Jachelle talk about the newest episode of Once Upon a Time and whether or not The Evil Queen can be redeemed, should be redeemed, or if they should just stop beating a dead horse. The show is slowly moving toward the finale, but a little too slow for us. Once Upon a Time is on ABC Sunday nights at 8 PM EST.
Chelsea and Jachelle discuss the new episode of Game of Thrones "Kissed by Fire." How many shapely naked people from behind do we see this episode? The answer is five, and they're mostly not gratuitous. Shocker. Game of Thrones is on HBO Sunday nights at 9 PM EST.
The Doctor takes Clara to a haunted house in an attempt to get more answers about her from a psychic. Instead they get wrapped up in the mystery and try to find a lost time-traveler. Doctor Who airs on BBC America Saturday nights.
