Super effective thriller, with real emotion, real impact. No underlying message about religion or anything like that. just a family trying to survive. It's going to be a very familiar environment to anyone that consumes modern media. There will be wisps of living in the world of The Walking Dead and such. I'm sure at more than one point, you will be reminded of Signs with Mel Gibson, but mostly you'll be wondering why they cast that girl as the daughter when she looks nothing like either parent. One thing I'm...

Looking forward to a nice two player night with my favourite gaming crony, Graham. I've packed beers, printed play aids, read the rules - twice - and I'm about to leave. The phone rings. "Matt? It's Graham. I've got a house full of teenagers. Bring some multi-player games. And some more beer." I'm in a rush, so I grab the first thing in front of me. It's Colt Express. I got it on a whim to play with my daughter. I mean: it's cheap, it's got a cool 3d train and it...

This is one of those really good movies that's going to be very tough to recommend since so many people, i think, would have a hard time with it.

It takes you to all sorts of places and you can bet your house that you will not be able to predict what will happen. There are some comedic elements, but it mostly works as a pretty heavy drama. The acting is really strong which can be...

Pretty entertaining biopic on Tonya Harding largely led by an awesome performance by Allison Janney as her mother. This is one of those movies where the performances are stronger than the movie. The movie is good, no question, but it's really more about just some fantastic moments marked by strong performances, including Robbie herself who gets better and better as the movie goes. I think the main detractor for the movie is the fact that, as correctly stated up front, the screenplay is based on the "wildly conflicting" testimonials by Tonya and Jeff...

"Do you know what Space Invaders is?" I ask my daughter. "Yeah, it's that really old video game with all the funny-shaped things." It's close enough, so I let it slide. Flip Ships is like Space Invaders, I tell her. There are two rows of alien cards at the end of the table and we're working together to take them down. We've got to flip little cardboard discs off the opposite edge to try and hit them. So we try, and it's chaos, a confetti of cardboard circles raining everywhere...
