DEAD SPACE 2 | © 2011 Electronic Arts

Platform: Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC Distributor: Electronic Arts Retail Price: $59.99 Release Date: January 25, 2011 There is something about horror-themed video games that make them stand out from the rest of the pack if done correctly. DEAD SPACE 2 does it in spades. The game is a sequel to the original DEAD SPACE released in October of 2008 focusing on the tribulations of engineer Isaac Clark after he arrives on a recon mission to find out why the USG Ishimura lost contact. What he finds is horror beyond belief as the inhabitants of the ship have been turned […]Read On »

CD Review: BRUC soundtrack

Bruc Soundtrack | ©2010 Movie Score Media

You can likely put the number of Napoleon-ea action scores on a short list, a unique quality that makes the genre open musical territory for Spanish-born (and American-trained) composer Xavier Capellas, who’s handled the scoring chores on such Spanish-funded horror pictures as BEYOND RE-ANIMATOR and FAUST. BRUC carries as similarly unhinged quality as a Catalonian goes Rambo on the Emperor’s assassins who pursue him through the mountainous wilds of Monteressat, giving Capellas the opportunity to unleash heroic hell in one of the more weirdly off-kilter period scores since Joe Lo Duca’s BROTHERHOOD OF THE WOLF. Here more symphonically traditional adventure […]Read On »

Stars: Elizabeth Mitchell, Morris Chestnut, Joel Gretsch, Logan Huffman, Laura Vandervoort, Morena Baccarin, Scott Wolf, Charles Mesure Writers: Gregg Hurwitz Director: Steve Shill Network: ABC Original Telecast: Tuesday, Jan. 11, 2011 You know, having a Visitor around the house would be pretty handy.

Of course, this was the money shot that V fans have been waiting for since the beginning of the rebooted series began. The lizards in action, doing lizard-type things […]Read On »

Stars: Elizabeth Mitchell, Morris Chestnut, Joel Gretsch, Morena Baccarin, Laura Vandervoort, Scott Wolf, Logan Huffman, Charles Mesure Writers: Scott Rosenbaum and Gregg Andrew Hurwitz Director: Bryan Spicer Network: ABC, airs Tuesdays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: Jan. 4, 2011 I had high hopes for the reboot of V when it aired last year. The classic series was fun and had some great moments but it was always cheeseball with lousy special effects and props. However, what made up for it was great storytelling and of a resistance that actually was organized, motivated and did something. The first season of the […]Read On »

Not sure why they gave us this episode as the send-off for FRINGE in 2010. In fact, I’d go as far as to say this fall finale ended in a whimper rather than a bang. Instead of ending it last week with the blowout episode where both Olivias (Anna Torv) swapped sides once again. We were given just a run-of-the-mill mad scientist episode in “Marionette.”

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – SEASON 6 – “Appointment in Samarra”

Hot damn, I love Death. SUPERNATURAL has made a living on creating compelling characters that return to the show time and time again to either aid or hinder the Winchester brothers. Crowley (Mark Sheppard) being one of the all-time greats and the main thrust of the season (so far) this year.
