Now Playing: A Review of Nickelodeon Kart Racer

McConnaughay

I wouldn’t say I had high expectations for Nickelodeon Kart Racers, as a matter-of-fact, I suspect many of you expect a scathing, cut-throat analysis of its many pitfalls and shortcomings. I wouldn’t fault you for that and, by all means, while I do my best to be constructive with my […]

Now Presenting: A Review of The Night Before

McConnaughay

Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen struck comedy gold with the 2013 release of This is the End, creating a fun, meta, stoner film. Thereafter, they tried their hand with a new absurdist comedy The Interview, a controversial film that never made it to a worldwide release. For some reason, I’ve […]

Now Playing: A Review of Rise of the Tomb Raider

McConnaughay

In 2013, Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics rebooted the long-running Tomb Raider video-game franchise with an installment geared more toward survival, in a much more grounded setting, an inexperienced Lara Croft was forced to fend for herself and fight off a ravenous cult to save her friends. The video-game received critical acclaim across the board, and, more importantly in […]

Now Playing: A Review of Remnant: From the Ashes

McConnaughay

I had my eye on Remnant: From the Ashes from the moment I caught a trailer heralding its interesting world and although I’ve been burned too many times by budget games (and Triple AAA titles, in-fact) like Agony and ReCore to make a leap of faith and buy it on release, I was stoked when I […]

Now Presenting: A Review of Noelle

McConnaughay

   If you couldn’t tell by your dwindling bank-account or having to sit across from your racist uncle, the holiday season is upon us and that means you’re sure to hear the sleigh bells ring (or … dreidels spin?) whether you’re listening or not. Never to be a Grinch (that’s later […]

Now Presenting: A Review of The Lion King (2019)

McConnaughay

Whether a remake or re-imagining is necessary often boils down to one or two key variables, whether such a film is in demand and whether that film can be improved on. I talked about it with my review of Aladdin recently, but I’ve had a mixed reaction to Disney’s newfound interest in “live-action/hyper-realistic animated” reinterpretations of the many […]

[11/19/19]: – New House, New Look

McConnaughay

A lot has happened since the last update I gave back toward the end of September commemorating the first month for the Mashers Club website. I haven’t been as on-track with the regular updates as I would have liked, but I do have some very real excuses for that. The last month and a […]
