Have You Seen…Singham?

Tiger uppercut! Release Date: July 22, 2011 Director: Rohit Shetty Starring: Ajay Devgn, Kajal Aggarwal, Prakash Raj Favorite quote: “Kutton ka jhund kitna bhi bada ho … uske liye ek sher hi kaafi hota hai” (Translation: “No matter how big the group of dogs is…for them, one tiger is more than enough.”) Recommending films made outside the United States is tricky. While Western films may have ...[Read More]

It (2017) Trailer #1 Released

They all float down here! As an old man, I’ve gotten extremely jaded when it comes to “scary” movies. I never get scared anymore. The best a movie can do with me nowadays is be effectively creepy. The new trailer for Stephen King’s It sure looks creepy. Maybe it’s because of Stranger Things. Ever since I saw the Netflix series, everything seemingly set in the 80s just...[Read More]

Personal Top 5 – NES Music

When I did my personal Top 5 for old-school anime, the thought of a running gimmick was born. I wanted to go through my past and figure what was my top five for other things. I figured, if I’m gonna do a tired old trick, I’m running the bitch into the ground! To be honest, I didn’t come to that conclusion in such a vulgar way. I did think I’d run with a tired gimmick, but I’d do it for selfish rea...[Read More]

2017: Superhero Movies and What I Want from Them – Midseason Report

In January of this year, I wrote my take on the superhero movies coming out this year, what I expected from them, and what I hoped wouldn’t happen with them. By the end of the article, anyone who read it would be forgiven if they thought I wasn’t exactly optimistic. I spit a bit of venom, but I generally wasn’t overly worried. If anything, I was more worried in 2016. Halfway through, and it’s time...[Read More]

E3 2017 Impressions: Nintendo Spotlight

Woo-hoo! Just like years past, Nintendo didn’t hold a formal conference at E3. Instead, it aired Nintendo Spotlight, a series of pre-recorded segments that highlight whatever games they have coming down the pipe. Personally, I’m not mad at the break from the norm. The conferences are just overly-choreographed bullshit shows anyway. At least with Nintendo, the bullshit is rehearsed and edited. That...[Read More]

E3 2017 Impressions: Sony Conference

Now with fishing! Another long one. I sure could use a drink… Microsoft had itself one impressive conference the day before. Its Xbox One X was the most anticipated announcement of E3 and they trotted out a very respectable slate of games. The onus was on Sony to respond, and many of us at Digital Crack wanted to know how they would. Their response was…curious. Sony has its own stable of heavy hit...[Read More]

E3 2017: Days Gone

Zombies…yay… I’ve already had my fill of zombie games. During E3 2016, tidbits of Days Gone were shown. It was short on info and heavy on the undead. I dismissed it. Lo and behold, Days Gone makes a more substantial appearance – with actual gameplay – during E3 2017. I’m still bored of zombies – called freakers here – but I’m listening. The gameplay trailer shows some of th...[Read More]

E3 2017: Marvel’s Spider-Man

“Hi. Is this the flight to Newark?” Here we go… Before we go on, just know that I am THAT guy. I’m the Marvel-head who obsesses about all Marvel-related minutiae. If the slightest thing doesn’t line up with the official continuity, I get butt-hurt. Naturally, the MCU drives me bonkers, even though I’ve generally enjoyed the movies thus far. I really don’t do it with malice; it’s a refl...[Read More]

E3 2017: God of War

“Wait here…I will handle this.” God of War made its debut during last year’s E3. Punisher officially squee’d while viewing the trailer last year. At PlayStation Live, I’d like to believe Punisher squee’d some more. This year’s presentation showed more of the spectacle combat the series is known for. The perspective change doesn’t affect Kratos’s brutality one bit. Using his Mjoln...[Read More]

E3 2017: Detroit: Become Human

Now with more emotions! I’m severely torn on this one. On the one hand, Detroit: Become Human looks like a technical and storytelling tour-de-force. On the other hand, it’s developed by Quantic Dream, David Cage’s studio. David Cage is…polarizing. Look, I’m not denying the man’s talent. Fahrenheit, Beyond: Two Souls, and Heavy Rain are all storytelling marvels. When David Cage wants to tell a stor...[Read More]

E3 2017 Impressions: Ubisoft Conference

Vive la France! This was strange territory for me. For the first time in a few years, Aisha Tyler was not going to emcee the Ubisoft conference. I know she’s a polarizing person, but I grew to really appreciate her level of cringe. Without her, I have to depend on Ubisoft to step up. And I don’t like their level of cringe. Aisha, come back to me! Past that, I had little expectations from the ladie...[Read More]

E3 2017: Anthem

It’s Mass Effect starring Tony Stark Ever see something and swear it can’t be true? That’s me with Anthem. I don’t have a legitimate reason to doubt BioWare. When they are on their game. They are almost without peer. Some of my all-time favorite games – Dragon Age: Inquisition, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Baldur’s Gate, to name a few – passed through their hands. Of course, when ...[Read More]
