Death can be one of the best career moves for a rock star. Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse kept ascending as recording artists when they passed. Each remains on a pedestal.
Even after 40 years, Pac-Man is unforgettable. The reason is literally as simple as his design. His creator, Toru Iwatani, thinks of a 17th century haiku, when asked about the importance of audiences identifying with a fictional character.
The new Seth Rogen vehicle, "An American Pickle," is a lot like the foodstuff for which it's named: a quick, tart, satisfying bite, and of course, kosher. The film heralds a return of sorts, or at least a nod to, classic American Jewish cinema (there's a nod to "Yentl").
As excited as most gamers are about each new generation of video games consoles, one of the first questions to crop up is inevitably “will the new system play my old games?”
What’s new for home viewing on Video on Demand and Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, HBO and other streaming services.
Responding to years of fan demand, Netflix is building up its Strong Black Lead library with the acquisition of seven beloved Black sitcoms. The classic shows from the 1990s and early aughts include “Moesha,” its spinoff “The Parkers” and more.
The Xbox Games Showcase was broadcast for the world to see on July 23, and I’ll admit to being excited by the plethora of offerings that were revealed that morning, including "Halo Infinite.”
Filmmaker Jessica Swale makes her directorial debut with the poignant “Summerland,” a tale of love and loss, motherhood and myth, set against the sweeping backdrop of Kent, England, and the White Cliffs of Dover during World War II.
The last few years have been a boon for good television – so much good television that you could be forgiven for missing a few standouts. We created this list of TV shows from the past few years that deserve your attention despite the fact that they have managed to fly under the radar for whatever reason.
What’s new for home viewing on Video on Demand and Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu and other streaming services.
This year has not been kind to Emerge. The Coeur d'Alene-based art space kicked off the new year by dealing with a fire that left Emerge displaced and unable to host workshops. Things were looking up, though, when Emerge signed a lease on a new location.
In late June, I penned the article “The Last of Us Part II highlights Metacritic issues,” and it seems they agree. A Metacritic official announced that the review aggregator will henceforth delay the ability to submit user reviews for newly released video games for the first 36 hours.
Radioactive: the discovery, the concept, the word defined culture in the 20th century, in the realms of science, medicine and war and in our own existential dread and pop fantasies. The threat of nuclear warfare and nuclear meltdowns, the advances in treating cancer and the invention of the X-ray machine: It’s all become such a ubiquitous part of modern life that it’s important to remember the discovery itself came from a Polish woman living in France at the turn of the century, a wife and mother who battered the elements into submission seeking to understand how they worked.
Games on a mobile phone have come a long way in a short time. Just 15 years ago, the platform was restricted mostly to notorious time-wasters like Solitaire and "Centipede."
Video game monetization is not a new concept, but it’s become increasingly common over the past decade. More and more game publishers began publishing expansion packs over the internet.
Every First Friday of the month, some of the city's best writers would congregate at Auntie's Bookstore for 3 Minute Mic. The open mic event allowed established writers and new voices to share their work, three minutes at a time, to the audience.
On June 22, Microsoft announced it would be shutting down its Mixer streaming service and urge its audience to transition to Facebook Gaming. The news came suddenly, and Mixer “partners” were as blindsided as everyone else.
“The Last of Us Part II” was released on June 19, and it was the most divisive video game launch in recent memory. Within hours, critic reviews and audience scores alike began flooding websites like Metacritic – normal for a big game release.
Bob Dylan is the Ted Williams of music. After Williams capped his unparalleled career with a home run in his final at-bat 60 years ago, the “Splendid Splinter” refused to acknowledge the scant home crowd of Red Sox fans at Boston’s Fenway Park.
As the co-pilot of a hijacked commercial airliner dealing with an injured arm and moral dilemmas after his captain (Carlo Kitzlinger) is killed, Joseph Gordon-Levitt delivers a commanding performance in “7500.”
