If you like your horror flicks with a large dose of suspense, the Kill List is just the thing for you. Funny Games is the only foreign film on our list, and it’s the only film that’s produced a remake thus far. The Woman is probably hands down the most uncomfortable film on our list, and again, this one isn’t going to be for everyone.

In fact it's the relationships between the characters that kept me interested in the Daredevil series. I'm one of the few people in the known universe who didn't like The Dark Knight when I saw it in the theaters in 2008. Captain America isn't exactly a complicated hero: young Steve Rogers is too frail to enlist in the army during WWII, but his patriotic attitude gets him volunteered in an experiment that makes him strong enough to outswim submarines and fight armies of Nazi's (and aliens) with nothing more than an indestructible shield. The nightmarish scenario presented in The Winter Soldier (influenced by the comics story by Ed Brubaker) allows Captain America few people to trust and I loved seeing his uncertain team-up and butting-ideals with Black Widow and Nick Fury play out as both characters are given so much more screen time than in The Avengers or it's prequels. While a smart story is always a plus The Winter Soldier be nothing without good direction and one only needs to check out the "On the front lines" extra on the Blu-ray to see the creativity by directors Anthony and James Russo. Obviously no movie is completely flawless but I'd have to dig pretty deep to find something wrong with The Winter Soldier.
2014 started out strong with some great games this year and since we've hit a sort of dry-spell these next couple months (at least for me, gonna be a long wait until October) I thought I'd dish on some of my favorite moments. Transistor probably is the best game I've played this year, from its customizable combat abilities to its somewhat surreal story-telling. The Transistor itself is not only your main weapon but main character Red's only form of companionship as she's lost her voice in a very empty world.
There are so many wonderful (and wonderfully terrible) moments in South Park The Stick of Truth, from being haunted by the spirits of dead animals stuck up someone's rectum to fighting Nazi-zombie-cows, that it'd be hard to narrow down just one favorite. I never would've thought the next Wolfenstein would be among my favorite games, but I loved every minute of The New Order and not just because it tells a pretty entertaining (and somewhat nutty) story. Whenever I say "I like Batman" I feel like I have to specify which "Batman" I'm talking about. Much like Black Mirror, Snyder's New 52 run features a lot of  violence: Bruce is stabbed multiple times by Owl agents, Joker sloppily reattaches of his own severed face. If there's one weak point in Scott Snyder's Batman, it's that he doesn't do a whole lot original. Orson Welles also did an adaptation of Macbeth in 1948, which was nicely produced with the actors speaking in Scottish accents.
Back in the 1990's when Kenneth Branagh was synonymous with Shakespeare, he directed the adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing in 1993 and of Hamlet in 1996 (which would've easily been on this list if Mr. While this level of interactive story-telling would make Quantic Dream and Telltale envious, 'The Last of Us' unfortunately never came close to that height again. The narrative became disappointingly atypical with an older (and grumpier) Joel bonding with plucky-teen Ellie on a post-apocalyptic adventure that hits on every trope in the genre (from bandits, to zombie-ish clickers, to disposable side-characters, to shouty confrontations) with very few surprises along the way. With cutscenes (for the most part) being driven by little more than characters yelling at each other it's a good thing that 'The Last of Us' was a crafty, mostly fun game to control.
Much like sexism and racism, once the subject of sexual violence is raised my first instinct is to quickly run the other way. Earlier, when I declared MGSV: Ground Zeroes my favorite game this year I mentioned I found the story ultimately benign.
So if South Park is known for pushing the boundaries of taste, what is Metal Gear known for?
For the longest time I'd see Dead Man Down on the DVD rack and think: "jeez, can't these actors get better work?". Noomi Rapace (Arden Oplev's leading actress from 'Dragon Tattoo') plays Beatrice, a former sylist who's life and career were damaged after a car collision disfigured her. Okay I admit: the plot of 'Dead Man Down' didn't exactly blow my mind and despite some cleverness in Victor's plans it doesn't take a genius to figure out how the story was going to end.
That Beatrice is blackmailing Victor doesn't stop them from forming a connection in 'Dead Man Down' and of course both characters realize their acts of revenge effect more than just themselves. The action-sequences in 'Dead Man Down' really get the blood pumping, from the opening shoot-out to it's explosive finale. As long as you're not expecting too much I think 'Dead Man Down' is worth your time, especially as a rental. I have very mixed feelings when it comes to the Western genre: The straight-forward, John Wayne-y films (The Searchers, The Man Who Shot Liberty Vallance) never really appealed to me and the one's I seem to remember most are usually the deconstructions ala Unforgiven and (the far superior) The Gunfigher.
Beautifully shot on snowy landscapes, The Great Silence has it's protagonist navigating Utah during the Great Blizzard of 1889 to hunt down a vicious bounty hunter named Loco. The most memorable thing about 'The Great Silence' is it's brutal tone as Loco and his allies get away with a lot of despicable acts. Sure there's some archetypical characterizations (the widow who hires Silence for revenge, the straight-laced sheriff who wants to protect the poor) this film ends as uncompromising as it begins. A polish Django with muttonchops-o-steel teams with a hedonistic rebel to force-feed lizards and dice to the rich and strip Jack Palance naked.
I suppose the Mexican Revolution could've done worse than hiring Polish Mercenary, Sergei Kowalski to fight for them.
Unlike The Great Silence, The Mercenary is very episodic but loaded with great characters and fun action-scenes. Snake himself comes with a few new moves and surprises, some of which I never discovered on my first playthrough (what? This may sound like 'inFamous: Second Son' left a bad impression on me, which isn't exactly true.
The episodes of Sherlock followed a predictable format: The first and second episodes were there to set up the seasonal conflict with great character-development ( thanks to the strong performances of the leads) but I felt the mysteries were uneven at best (Study in Pink and Scandal in Belgravia) and flat-out boring at worst (The Blind Banker and The Hounds of Baskerville). Sure, the first episode (The Empty Hearse) was a little weak: very little time was spent on the core conflict (terrorists trying to blow up the house of parliament) and the meta, fan-theories of Sherlock's escape were fun at first but a little nerve-grating by the end. I'm a sucker for good detective stories and Telltale's adaptation of Bill Willingham's comics has the great characters, atmosphere and plot-twists I've come to expect from the genre. 2012 saw the release of many favorite games like Mark of the Ninja, X-Com: Enemy Unknown, and Dishonored. There's a lot of reasons I like and still play Red Dead Redemption: It's well-written, it's graphics are (still) beautiful and the world is filled to the brim with that 'ol western personality. Persona 3 FES (I didn't grab the initial release) completely reinvigorated my love for turn-based JRPGs. Despite the COD franchise being a joke at this point, the first Modern Warfare game was something of a treat.
When everyone was picking up their copy of 'Final Fantasy X' for the first time I was sinking hours into the flawed-but-cool, gothic JRPG Shadow Hearts. While Future Soldier ditches most (*cough ALL cough*) tactical options introduced in previous Ghost Recon games it succeeds in being a smarter-than-average, 3rd-person cover-shooter thanks to an emphasis on strategy and teamwork. Sniping is one of my favorite mechanics in any shooter (see COD4's  Pripyat mission) and Sniper Elite V2 makes that the core of it's gameplay. I know saying The Wolf Among Us is my favorite game this year is a bit premature but the 2 to 3 hours I spent with Faith was more enjoyable and engaging than any full-release I played this year. Jason, Freddy, Michael Myers, and good old Pinhead are names most folks will recognize, but there are many, many different types of terror. One friend is trying to save the other from a methamphetamine addiction when things take a strange and mysterious turn. The Kill List follows a British Hitman who’s been called back into action for one more job. Funny Games follows two nice looking young gentlemen by the name of Paul and Peter as they make friends and play games with a family on vacation. Well known horror director Lucky McKee directed this little gem about a man and his family that try to “civilize” a feral woman from the woods.
As the title implies, the horrors come in the form of a VHS tape, and the sequel brings four new stories to life that just might scare you to death.

The action is flashy, the actors are attractive and the stories include enough fan-service to satisfy a long-time comic book fan like myself (though I think Arrow could borrow a bit less from Batman). Thanks to the crafty camera work the action comes off more as "pulp" than "realistic" (one fight-sequence seems taken right out of an episode of Banshee) but man, did I feel every blow Matt gave and took.
Thankfully this isn't the case as Matt's fellow Lawyer (and best friend) Foggy Nelson has many lighter moments of humor and manages to be an everyman-type character without throwing off the darker tone of the show. I believed their friendship instantly and I loved watching Charlie Cox and Elden Henson play off each other. There's real sincerity to Matt and Foggy forming a quick friendship with their client turned colleague Karen Page is believable (thank's to the characters' shared loneliness (and lack of money).
When it comes to live-action superheroes Daredevil lacks the epic grandeur of Arrow and The Flash, but I think it's a lot more engaging. Even better, Steve's friendship with fellow soldier Sam Wilson makes the man-who-will-be-Falcon a crucial part of the narrative rather than a character who simply cheers from the sidelines.


With an economical use of CGI (mostly towards the end) the action scenes, whether a hand-to-hand brawl in an elevator or a car chase on the highway are all given a gritty, down to earth feel that compliments the movie's topical story.
It's not that it's perfect (feel free to list anything you didn't like about it in the comments) but I'd get defensive because so much of the movie rings true for me: A story that mirrors potential real-world scenarios, the characters that all add to the ever-thickening plot and even the sense of humor that springs up once in a while despite the grimness of each situation (from Black Widow constantly trying to find Steve a date to the little jabs at his age). This game starts with a knock-out sequence with lead detective Ronan realizing he's dying (not a spoiler, that's the actual premise of the game) and in a panic tries reposess his body by having you line up his arms and legs before the main killer delivers the coup de grace. That all you can do his passively listen to this story as you accomplish your mission sheds a haunting light on Omega base that's hard to forget. The level that sticks with me most though is when your male character has to infiltrate an abortion clinic by posing as a girl who's recently been impregnated.
I never found myself drawing parallels to real-life; there's nothing that sheds new light on anything except Batman and his world. I've never seen "Shakespeare in the park" and it's been years since I've seen a play performed on stage. From Franco Zeffirelli's operatic Otello to the modern-translated O, Shakespeare's tale of an Italian General who's manipulated into jealousy and murder by his trusted friend, Iago is one story that seems to work in any format. A few years ago Patrick Stewart starred in a very horror-themed version of the titular warrior's rise and fall when set on a path to become King.
Sure, Akira Kurosawa based his movie of an old ruler (a terrific Tatsuya Nakadai) and his weakness for his three (mostly) wicked sons on the rule of Daimyo Mori Motonari as much as Shakespeare's King Lear, but he's also added a dab of Macbeth in the form of Lady Kaede. I honestly never knew there was such a play until this exciting, timely and brutal film was released back in 2011. I certainly like other Shakespeare adaptations: 2004's Merchant of Venice with Al Pacino and Jeremy Irons (in terrific performances), the 2009 production of Hamlet with David Tennant and Patrick Stewart, Ian Mckellen's WWII take on Richard III.
That it was obvious where Joel and Ellie's relationship was going the second they meet really didn't help matters.
Like the best parts of Uncharted 3, I was able to choose my approach when sneaking up on a group of enemies, taking them down one by one or distracting them so Joel and Ellie could sneak around.
Did it meet your expectations?  Are you going to be picking up the PS4 release this summer? It's not that I don't have strong feelings on these matters (I don't think anyone can't) but my mere experience as a white-male with few friends doesn't lend my voice much weight when discussing such important issues. My first playthrough of Ground Zeroes I didn't know what happened to Paz and Chico; by the time I did collect the "interrogation" tape I had already read up so many people's reactions to it that any intended "shock value" was gone. Of course that's before I took a better look and saw the directing credit of Niels Arden Oplev, who also directed the original Girl with the Dragon Tattoo films.
She blackmails Victor (Colin Farrell), a mafia strong-arm to kill the drunk-driver responsible for her car accident.
The performances by Noomi Rapace and Colin Farrell really bring these two characters to life but I was equally impressed with supporting cast: Dominic Cooper plays Darcy, a friend of Victor's with a wife and kid and who may be unintentionally in Victor's crosshairs.
The violence is of course very gritty (would expect nothing less from 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' director) and people get shot, beat-up and tortured in equal measure. Of course none of that would've mattered if I didn't care about the characters and Dead Man Down always made sure there was an emotional stake in all of these scenes. It's of course not the kind of film that was remembered during any awards season, but as a gritty action-thriller with a focus on character and emotion I found it to be a cut above the usual fair. They eventually run into the sadistic Curly (Jack Palance), who sports a silly toupee and carries grudge to the end of the film.
If you like this film check out Corbucci's companion piece, Companeros (also starring Jack Palance, Franco Nero and one big-ass gun!). I know, I know, according to a lot of fans (and IGN's Greg Miller) MGS Peace Walker has the best story in this convoluted series of jaded-soldiers, giant robots and mind-f*ckery. Thematically functioning as a prologue to 'Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain', most fans looking for a taste of director Hideo Kojima's brand of batcrap-insane plot twists and geopolitical-commentary will have little to chew on here (and will probably be more satisfied once Phantom Pain is released next year). Instead I was wondering why I couldn't have more than one set of powers equipped at a time? Why aren't there more karma-centric side-activities? The series' winning formula of scaling buildings and super-powered battles is still intact and comes with some improvements thanks to the PS4's hardware: Clearing a city block of DUP soldiers became quite the spectacle as I blasted away their barricades with missile-powers (Neon, Video or Smoke) and blew-up their bridges, taking any occupying enemies with them. I'm not sure how necessary the photo-realistic graphics are (other than servicing a trend in most next-gen games) but the performance capture gets believable facial expressions from Troy Baker, Travis Willingham and Christen Dunford as the villainous Augustine. For every time I fell into the water during an intense battle, there was a moment I marveled at the destruction I could cause to the environment.
When Stephen Moffat and Mark Gatiss announced their modern-day reboot of the Sherlock Holmes character I couldn't have been more giddy.
Benedict Cumberbatch's cold, antisocial-ish Holmes and Martin Freeman's warm but haunted Watson made these characters feel modern and easy to attach to and the stories were usually clever enough to keep me guessing. Unfortunately, as Season two rolled around and Sherlock kept growing in popularity I started to see it's story-telling patterns and my feelings about the show became more distant.
Only the Finales (The Great Game, The Reichenbach Fall), with their excellent pacing and game-changing cliffhangers seemed worth watching by the end.
Sure, I was interested to know how Holmes escaped death at the end of Season Two but I wasn't sure I wanted to sit through another predictable format, having to wait through two mediocre episodes to see a really good one. But Sherlock and Watson's "punchy" reunion was a hoot and watching Sherlock race to Watson's rescue on motorcycle was the kind of exciting, emotional sequence that demonstrates this show at it's best. I like how we're seeing a more human side of Holmes and how his relationship with Watson remains central to the show.
Again, these are not definitive choices and there are plenty of other great games I highly recommend. But these are the one's that have stayed at the front of my mind.
I realize this isn't technically a "complete" game (and the rest of the season may be terrible for all I know) but I found the three hours I spent playing The Wolf Among Us to be more enjoyable than any full-length game in 2013. Far Cry 3, however made me a fan of FPS games again with it's narrative-strong setup, open-world gameplay and an RPG-like sense of player progression.  Seriously, I'm still replaying this game more than a year after it's release and still finding new quests and different ways of playing.
For once Nathan Drake and company come up against adversaries that are just as clever and conniving as our heroes. Excellent atmosphere, style and music complimented a slick combat system and the story never became stale thanks to some great characters. While keeping with their flag-waving attitude, COD4 told a story that was both exciting and topical and didn't pull any punches when it came to militaristic violence. Covenant is an even better game with sharper graphics, a fun-but-complex battle system and an epic story (with memorably zany characters) that spans through an alternate WWI era. Again, this thing changes on a hourly basis (dammit!  I forgot about Persona 4 Golden, Xenoblade Chronicles, Bastion, Portal 2, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, GTAIV, Max Payne 3, Mass Effect 3 and Mark of the Ninja! Despite finding myself on the pacifistic side of modern politics I can't seem to resist the idea of jumping into the role of soldier, traveling the world and using the latest in military hardware to take down enemies (i.e.
That’s about all we can say as Resolution is the type of film you want to go into cold, and we’re not spilling any of the secrets.
Zombies, Cults, Aliens and Clinical Trials are the subjects of the short films – Safe Haven and A Ride in the Park were our favorites. Karen's teaming with old-school crime reporter Ben Urich, Matt's relationship with his father, Jack and mentor, Stick; everything rings true and the well-structured story insures not a single character feels wasted.
The darker tone and grounded action scenes should appeal to those looking for a grittier superhero offering, but I'm glad the show manages to keep the characters believable and is able to offset it's darkness with moments of lightness and self-awareness ("sounds like Avacados at law!"). Are you looking forward to Marvel's other Netflix offerings (Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist etc.)? You see, I love movies and I envy people who have a film they are so in awe of, that speaks to them on a personal level that it becomes a standard by which everything else has to live up to.
In fact everyone, from Batroc the Leaper to Alexander Pierce feels deliberate and important thanks to Christopher Markus and Stephen Mcfeely's well-structured screenplay. With every sequence carefully thought-out and planned the action in Winter Soldier never loses sight of what 's at stake.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a superhero film with real weight and one, at least in my mind that every other will have to live up to.
Performing a fake abortion on a grown man and dodging government agents is just the start of this horrifically entertaining mission. But even in his original comic book incarnation my liking of Batman's story really depends on who's helming it.
Death of the Family featured the return of the Joker in a very flamboyant (and violent) fashion and Zero Year puts a new spin on Batman's origins and features elements of the classic stories Batman Year One and No Man's Land.
Snyder writes Bruce, not like a brooding vigilante with no sense of humor but a character who's lived through dark times and honestly feels he's trying to make Gotham City a better place. It's all still good-guys versus bad-guys, but there's enough depth to these characters and stories that I never feel Snyder and his artists are just spinning their wheels.
It's strange then that I do very much like Shakespeare adaptations brought to movies and television.
Part of me wanted to choose 1995's adaptation with brilliant performances by Laurence Fishburne (as Othello) and Kenneth Branagh (as Iago). Again, both good movies but if I had to pick a favorite it'd be Roman Polanski's exciting and brutally violent adaptation. Henry V was his first and, IMO best film featuring down and dirty battle scenes as England's king leads his very outnumbered army against the French.


Two sons are given power and abuse it, the third loves his father but is too much of a hothead to convey his sincerity. I admit, Ran is not my favorite of Akira Kurosawa's movies and the film does drag on a bit in the middle, but spectacular battle scenes and Kurosawa's beautiful use of color make this movie a feast for the eyes. Gerard Butler is wonderfully compelling as the title character's rival (as is the rest of the cast which includes Vanessa Redgrave, Jessica Chastain and Brain Cox) but it's Fiennes himself who gives dimensions to this soldier who's effectiveness on the battlefield is countered but his lack of political savvy and disgust for the protesting civilians of Rome.
It can even serve as a lubricant, helping make a game's rough areas easier to pass. But when The Last of Us was first announced and every game publication on the planet was singing its praises, I was keeping my expectations in check. Controlling both characters, even as they fought off waves of sieging clickers could get pretty intense as my ammo started to drain and I had to get creative using my weapons, tools and the environment.
It's only when exploring the camp and finding hidden audio tapes do you discover Paz and Chico's treatment while being interrogated. Hearing the villainous Skull Face force the underage Chico to have intercourse with Paz and the reveal of the second bomb (probably) hidden in Paz's vagina came off as icky, and maybe a little pervy, but overall didn't trip any "you can't do that in a video game" triggers with me.
Probably because Stick of Truth writers Matt Stone and Trey Parker have been doing this raunchy content for years and know how to successfully implement serious issues like sexual violation. Hideo Kojima, with his over-the-top characters, mind-f*cked plot-twists and B-movie dialogue is probably not the ideal game-developer to make a serious statement on sexual violence . What is the point of me, someone with no experience or really any solidified perspective of sexual violence writing all this up in the first place? While I don't think it quite matches that Swedish-language trilogy, Dead Man Down is a surprisingly well-made English-language crime-thriller that considers character-drama just as important as it's action-scenes. But what she doesn't realize is that Victor has set in motion his own plans for revenge, the reason and method of which are slowly revealed as the story unfolds. I don't think I've ever seen Terrence Howard play a character as calculating (and brutal) as Hoyt, Victor's boss: he's an intelligent criminal who favors loyalty and is constantly trying to outthink every threat he's faced with. This week I ended up buying two of my favorites on DVD, both directed by Sergio Corbucci (Django). But I've just recently gotten into portable gaming so, despite it being the chronological follow-up to 'Peace Walker' I went into Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes with only a knowledge of it's home-console predecessors (MGS1-4). Sure, it's still fun diving from cover to cover and crawling through patches of grass to stay undetected. But as something that I can just sit down and play (and replay), be it through added Side-Ops missions or collectable-hunting, 'Ground Zeroes' is easily the most satisfying game I've purchased in the last few months. Just my main character plopping into the water with a "not again" and treading there as the screen goes dark. For each fight with the drug dealers that had my eyes glazing over I smiled as Delsin found another wall to tag. Maybe it was the two-year wait, maybe it was seeing Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman in terrific movie roles last year (Freeman in The Hobbit and The World's End, Cumberbatch in..well just about everything!) but Sherlock season three had me hooked!
My enthusiasm might wane again by the time Fourth season comes around but if it's the same quality of Season Three (and they at least make their second "filler" episode as entertaining as Sign of Three) then I have no doubt I will remain a dedicated fan.
This not only made them seem like a very real threat, (something that was missing from the first two games) but villains that reflected the darker aspects of our main protagonists. Infamous 2 is a far superior game than this original and Assassin's Creed 2's gameplay seems archaic at this point but both were really great experiences for 2009. Excellent pacing, diverse levels and a sense of urgency that just isn't found in current military shooters makes this game (still) stand heads and shoulders above the rest. I can't think of another game in Suda 51's collection that's as nutty (or brilliantly stylish) as Killer 7.
While the mechanics are as straight-forward and dull-as-can-be, Spec Ops lulls you into a sense of comfort as you take your three-man squad into modern Dubai to liberate it from American Soldiers who've gone insane. V2 is kinda hard to recommend with it's low-budget graphics and not-so-impressive running and gunning but the sniping-gameplay is some of the coolest I've seen in a game (the camera follows the bullets trajectory, then shows you the physical damage it does to your target X-Ray style).
While Resolution isn’t as horrific as some of the other films on our list, it’s an awesome Indie that’s well worth a watch. The horror elements in this one are kept to a minimum as it focuses on atmosphere and really puts the viewer in a strange, dark place.
The film builds up the terror over time, and there are more uncomfortable moments than you can shake a stick at. Great performances by Pollyanna McIntosh, Angela Bettis, and Sean Bridgers of Deadwood fame.
It’s the first “good” found footage film we’ve seen in a while, and you can jump right in without having seen the first one.
But Arrow and The Flash don't really hold my attention beyond what's on the surface and I was getting a bit worried that this "YA Soap Opera with superheroes" setup was going to become standard. Daredevil is my favorite superhero in comic books and now, he's my favorite superhero on TV (or on Netflix at least). After seeing Captain America: The Winter Soldier I finally know how 'Dark Knight' fans feel. That he's forced to confront some uncomfortable truths about himself (his family history with the Owls, his twisted relationship with Joker, even questioning his own crusade) makes Batman someone very flawed and very human, especially when he sees how his own behavior alienates those around him. Everyone has their ideal version of their favorite superhero, and while it may not have the timelessness of Dark Knight Returns or The Killing Joke, Snyder's run on Batman is the one I'm going to be comparing everything else to. It's certainly the most accessible (and politically correct) but the one version I can't seem to forget is Orson Welles' 1952 film which used real locations in Rome and Morocco for filming. Packed with more blood and nudity than any other Shakespeare movie I've seen, Polanski's film focuses on the play's more visceral elements as Macbeth murders a king in cold blood, consorts with naked witches, sees visions of a baby being ripped out of a mother's womb and chops down everyone who threatens his throne. This is Shakespeare bold, bloody and badass! But the above are the one's that have stuck in my mind the most and if you haven't yet, I hope you check them out.
When Naughty Dog claimed they were going to "change the f**cking industry" I shrugged it off with a "we'll see". I love the Uncharted series, but I knew 'The Last of Us' was new territory for this Sony-exclusive company. Of course this is nothing new to video games but it does show using tried-and-true mechanics can still be exciting when implemented right. In fact it wasn't until IGN posted it's (excellent) article, explaining the author's problems with Ground Zeroes ending did I realize those tapes even existed.
I'm obviously not the go-to person for information on this subject and neither is Hideo Kojima. Thankfully this didn't affect my enjoyment as the narrative of 'Ground Zeroes' is easily it's most benign feature. Using tried and true mechanics found in The Legend of Zelda games, Clover Studio brought excitement and a sense of wonder to Sony's console.
All I know is I had a blast playing through it and I keep hoping Suda51 strikes gold again. While I refuse to pick-up Call Of Duty: Goats and Battleveal 4 (no big reason, I just don't like either franchise) I have been going back and playing some of my favorite soldiering experiences on console. It’s definitely not going to be for everyone, but it’s a “must see” if you dig films that leave you thinking long after the credits have rolled. Thankfully Netflix's Daredevil is something different; a striking, well-acted and self-aware comic book show that manages to (mostly) keep me engaged.
That I still find myself rooting for Bruce is a testament to Scott Snyder's writing skills and he keeps these character moments going at a steady pace along with the action. I can only hope it's not too long before Ralph Fiennes dabbles again in the world of Shakespeare. But you see, this doesn't stop Kojima from implementing real-life issues in his games: nuclear war, it's potential profitability and the dehumanization of soldiers are all themes of the Metal Gear series. I can honestly say (after so many deaths and restarts) there was never a point during 'Ground Zeroes' that I didn't feel vulnerable. The Celestial Brush is still one of the coolest weapons I've used and the cell-shaded world filled with Japanese folklore still looks amazing after all these years. Nolan North, Christopher Reid, Omid Abtahi, Bruce Boxleitner and Jake Busey give terrific performances in one of the most horrific (and self-aware) shooters that I've ever played. This list ranks the best Bollywood movies Netflix has to offer. The over-the-top, out-of-the-box industry of Bollywood is a one-of-a-kind genre that will definitely make you want to jump out of your seat and dance! Even Ground Zeroes' Camp Omega is a thinly veiled representation of Guantanamo Bay and is very much a statement on America's use of Blacksites. In fact, Hindi language films outsell all other non-English films in the United States.Whether you like comedy, romance, or action films, these Bollywood movies on Netflix have it all.
