Taking a Stab Tuesdays!: A Review of Child’s Play (2019)

McConnaughay

I have a lot of love for the Child’s Play series. In-fact, Child’s Play 2 is among my favorite slasher (and horror!) films ever. I loved the colorful cinematography and the light-heart approach. I loved Brad Dourif’s performance and the cartoon cat-and-mouse between Andy and Chucky. Since the glory days […]

Foreign Film Thursdays: Monkey King: Hero is Back

McConnaughay

Animation is wonderful, and yet, it isn’t very often that foreign animation is able to find the caliber of success enjoyed Stateside. This isn’t always the truth, for instance, Japan has its own distinct brand through anime and companies like Studio Ghibli finding real mainstream success (Spirited Away made nearly […]

[9/17/19] Themed Reviews and “List” Updates

McConnaughay

It’s difficult to believe we’re only seventeen days into Mashers Club. This shouldn’t come as a surprise by any stretch. Not when you consider the website already has thirteen film reviews and eight video-game reviews! And, that’s without really dipping into the robust archive of “Vault” reviews I have yet to add to the “The List” database. […]

I can remember seeing a teaser trailer for Mutant Year Zero and immediately knowing it was something I was interested in, however. An apocalyptic setting with a twist, and I don’t know […]

Now Playing: A Review of Bloodborne

McConnaughay

   Developed by From Software and published by Sony Computer Entertainment exclusively for the PlayStation 4, the Bloodborne video-game is a spiritual successor to and plays very much like iterations from the Dark Souls franchise. I don’t know about you, but Dark Souls is a franchise I have a love-and-hate relationship with. Demon’s Souls was one of the first video-games I […]

Now Playing: A Review of Nier: Automata

McConnaughay

   Nier: Automata is an action role-playing game developed by PlatinumGames (a company whose catalogue includes fun experiences like Bayonetta and Vanquish) and published by Square Enix originally for PlayStation 4, Microsoft Windows, and finally, Xbox One. Nier: Automata loosely follows-up where it left off in the 2010 video game Nier, which, in itself, was a spin-off of the Drakengard series. […]

Now Presenting: A Review of It Chapter Two

McConnaughay

It: Chapter One set the horror scene ablaze when it first arrived in September 2017, receiving a warm reception from critics and audience-members alike, and ushering in the most dominant horror film of all-time (without adjusting for inflation) and a major victory for Warner Bros. When considering the difference in […]
