Movie review: B.J. Novak’s directorial debut ‘Vengeance’ a smart social satire

UPDATED: Thu., July 28, 2022

B.J. Novak opens his debut feature “Vengeance,” which he wrote, directed and stars in, with a scene of acidic social commentary that lays the tone for the smart satire of contemporary media culture that ensues.

Game On: Now free-to-play, Fall Guys is still a knockout game

Some might remember that I wrote about “Fall Guys” once before, when the game was first released near the onset of the pandemic and amassed huge popularity in a short time-frame. It was the perfect game at the perfect moment – bright and cheerful to lift people’s spirits, fun to watch on streaming services and extremely replayable.

UPDATED: Thu., July 21, 2022

We can stipulate that Jenny Slate, the stand-up comedian and creator and star of the beguiling 2014 comedy “Obvious Child,” is adorable. In “Marcel the Shell With Shoes On,” she brings that A-game to a vocal performance as the title character, a tiny shell with one googly eye and a pair of pink shoes, who has become an object of fascination for a documentary filmmaker named Dean (Dean Fleischer-Camp).

Movie review: ‘Nope’ another genre-disrupting masterpiece from Jordan Peele

UPDATED: Thu., July 21, 2022

In “Nope,” writer/director Jordan Peele presents us with a big, shiny summer blockbuster — a cowboys and aliens riff built from the DNA of sci-fi spectacles of yore — and then proceeds to vivisect the very notion of a summer blockbuster before our eyes. He wants us to question the nature of image-making, and he starts at the beginning of film history, with photographer Eadweard Muybridge. In ...

Game On: Whatever happened to BioShock?

The first BioShock came out of nowhere in 2007 and miraculously made waves despite its stiff competition – Halo 3, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Team Fortress 2 and Half-Life 2: Episode Two were all excellent first-person shooters that launched the same year to already-dedicated followings. How’d they manage to compete?
