Superfly (2018) Movie Review

Real Talk By: CMack The Don

The original Superfly starring Ron ‘O Neal debuted in 1972, when most of mainstream film audiences weren’t exactly as familiar with the aesthetics and style of stone cold pimpin’ as they may or may not be today.  The movie was made on a low budget but still released by Warner Brothers pictures, and had the distinction of being one of the first widely released movies with a mostly non-white production and technical team behind it. The soundtrack by Curtis Mayfield has some truly classic 70’s hits, and the soundtrack went on to become more popular than the original film itself, earning close to the same amount of revenue the movie did at the box office.

Ant-Man and The Wasp Movie Review

Real Talk By: CMack The Don

Warning: Spoilers Are Below

The first Ant-Man was a surprise MCU-hit for me, considering I’ve never really thought of Ant-Man as a big deal (Jokes, son! Stay sharp now!) even as a massive Marvel fan. The other creepy-crawly based Marvel hero, one of the arachnid variety, definitely casts a bigger shadow in people’s minds and at the box office than Hank Pym and Scott Lang. It seemed like Marvel knew this and made a movie that acknowledged how frankly ridiculous of a character Ant-Man is, and how silly the premise is, in a family-friendly action/comedy with a great cast that combined elements of Honey I Shrunk the Kids and a heist movie, and squished it all into a superhero film. There’s few superhero movies like it, and because of its humble and self-aware approach, Ant-Man really gained a lot of credibility with me, as well as a hilarious cameo in Civil War.

PixelJunk Monsters 2 Review: Aaahh!!! Real Monsters

Real Talk By: Zombie Zac

PixelJunk Monsters, released 11 years ago, was one of first examples of a great digital download game on PS3. It was one of the finest tower defense games of that time, a genre that hadn’t been watered down and beat to death by mobile games. With the iPhone in its infancy, and with no App Store, it was a different world when PixelJunk Monsters was released. Continue reading “PixelJunk Monsters 2 Review: Aaahh!!! Real Monsters”
