The official announcement on Naughty Dogs’ website was accompanied by the above cinematic trailer. This new UNCHARTED game will not feature Nathan Drake, but will instead follow treasure hunters Chloe and Nadine as they search for the Tusk of Ganesh. I’m cool with that. From the critically acclaimed developer, Naughty Dog, comes the first standalone adventure in the Uncharted series. Chloe Frazer must enlist the aid of renowned mercenary Nadine Ross in order to recover a fabled ancient Indian...

STAR WARS REBELS 4th And Final Season Trailer

At this year’s STAR WARS CELEBRATION in Orlando, it was announced that STAR WARS REBELS will be returning for a fourth and final season beginning Fall 2017. The announcement was accompanied by a full trailer that gives us a look at what to expect. There will be 15 episodes in total concluding the popular Disney XD animated series. While I absolutely love the series, I’m glad to see it getting a proper conclusion that will hopefully smoothly lead into ROGUE ONE. There’s just no way all these characters survive and I’m eager as hell to see what happens to everyone....

STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI Teaser Trailer!

This week is the annual STAR WARS CELEBRATION in Orlando Florida so expect a crap ton on new STAR WARS stories and announcements in the near future. The event kicked off with a bang releasing the first teaser trailer for STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI which will be releasing later this year. Nothing huge was revealed in this teaser which is just the way I like it. I have to give the STAR WARS films credit, they do a good job hyping up their films without spoiling too much in the teasers and trailers. And be honest, do you...

Josh Brolin Cast As Cable in DEADPOOL 2!

It’s official. Josh Brolin has officially been cast as Cable in DEADPOOL 2. We’ve come a long way since THE GOONIES. So yeah, Brolin is also Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Cool. He’s a badass. Get over it. I’m a HUGE Cyclops fan. And as you know, Cable is Cyclops’ son Nathaniel Summers. I won’t bore you with how he’s related (or not related) to Jean, Havoc, Rachael, Corsair the space pirate, Gabriel, and Hope. It’s complicated. Basically you just need to know that Cable is Cyclops’ time-displaced son who is older than him. #XMen It’s also worth...

Nintendo Switch “Joy-Cons” vs “Pro Controller”

The new Nintendo Switch is definitely very “Nintendo”. And that’s a good thing, but it also means that the controller set up may be a little too quirky for some. Hardcore gamers may want another option other than the packed-in “Joy-Cons”. Thankfully, Nintendo has created the “Pro Controller” to give gamers that solid gaming experience they’re familiar with. Both controller set ups have their pros and cons. Watch as Jason Furie gives you a side by side comparison of the two highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of both. Spoiler alert, the “Pro Controller” is...

Are You Ready for DESTINY 2? Reveal Trailer and Release Date!

Well it’s official, DESTINY 2 is officially coming out and it’s a lot sooner than you think! DESTINY 2 is set to release on September 8th, 2017. Somewhere rattling around in the back of my head I remember hearing that the original DESTINY would be around for the long haul replacing a numbered sequel with a bazillion updates and enough DLC to keep it relevant. Maybe I assumed too much and they just meant they would “support” the game for 10 years before ignoring it forever. Either way, DESTINY is back. Are you excited? Personally, I have a real...

JUSTICE LEAGUE Reaction Video and First Impressions

The DC cinematic universe has been a little shaky with fans so far with some pretty split opinions when it comes to MAN OF STEEL, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Suicide Squad. I definitely think Justice League will be a turning point for the franchise for better or worse. Watch as I react to the trailer as I see it for the very first time, and stay after for a mini review and initial impressions. Fingers...

Top 12 Films We Didn’t Review in 2016 But Are Amazing!

1. THE WITCH Modern horror is filled with shocking images and harsh noise cues that are designed to make you feel uneasy and have you jumping at just the right moments, thankfully THE WITCH takes the genre back to the quiet, unnerving side of things as it delivers a slow burn of discomfort and disquiet that will none the less keep you glued to the screen.  Taking elements from actually witchcraft stories in the historical record, this movie takes you on a creepy ride into the isolated country side as a family is torn apart by the very things...

KONG: SKULL ISLAND Movie Review

Kong is back on the big screen and he’s bigger (seriously he’s huge) and arguably better than ever. But first, let’s talk about the elephant in the room, Peter Jackson’s 2005 film KING KONG. That was hands down a better “film” than KONG: SKULL ISLAND offering a richer universe, more fleshed out characters, and some intense action that had visual as well as emotional weight. SKULL ISLAND on the other hand threw that all out the window and decided to just give us balls-to-the-wall action featuring Kong as much as the budget could handle. It’s typical to slowly reveal...

Starz’s AMERICAN GODS and FX’s FARGO Season 3 Get Premiere Dates

The highly anticipated TV adaptation of Neil Gaimen’s AMERICAN GODS novel will officially premiere on April 30th, 2017 on Starz. The series will run for 8 episodes. I read the original novel a few years ago based on a recommendation by our very own Sean Wheeler. If you haven’t read it yet, it’s a great read. I can’t wait to see how the battles between old and new gods get adapted as a TV series. Besides being a fan of the novel, I will say that I was sold once I heard it will be on Starz able to...
