‘The Tall Man’: Not Slenderman, not really horror

If you were familiar with the “Slenderman” mythos and you saw the trailer for the new Jessica Biel horror film The Tall Man, you might think the latter was inspired by the former. You’d be wrong, however, as I discovered this weekend when I went to North Hollywood to see the movie in its limited […]

‘Conviction’ is yet another so-so ‘Splinter Cell’

I just stopped the end of America, after all, in quite an awesome feat of marksmanship, hand-to-hand combat and general badassery. Shouldn’t I feel more…I dunno, just more, about it?

The sequel to last year’s arthritis-inducing “Assassin’s Creed” carries many of the […]

Your partner, a local PD detective named Blake, doesn’t catch the sound – until the man is in the room with you both.

‘Bioshock 2’ more rehash than sequel

It’s important to qualify my following complaints about Bioshock 2 by saying that I loved Bioshock and played it through no fewer than three times. For a sequel, Bioshock 2 does a lot of things right. It recaptures the feel of the first game while presenting new locations and a storyline that moves in interesting […]
