‘The Lego Ninjago Movie’ Review: Father, Son and Everyone Else

20 September 2017 10:12 AM, PDT

The Lego Ninjago Movie is the third film from Warner Brothers based on characters made out of the iconic interlocking building toys. In terms of box office risk it surpasses its predecessors without the crutch of popular culture and allure of a snarky Batman to lean on. That alone dooms this plastic-y ode to martial arts films to be the least memorable of the bunch.

Without having to rely on DC's man in black allows The Lego Ninjago Movie to take more chances and push the Lego movie franchise in bold new directions. Links to our physical world are unexpected, albeit also wholly unexplained. For example, as visually impressive as the commingling of an impressively scaled Asian-inspired Lego city is with real water and flora, there's no easily decipherable reason as to why they coexist within the story. They just do.

Then there's Meowthra, star of the second trailer who »

‘Thimbleweed Park’ Review: Point, Click, Laugh

19 September 2017 9:22 AM, PDT

Thimbleweed Park is a new indie title from developer Terrible Toybox and designed by legendary creators Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick, creators of Maniac Mansion and The Secret of Monkey Island. Just like the games they gave us decades ago, Thimbleweed Park is a point-and-click adventure, or Scumm-based game. With retro graphics and playstyle, fans of the old-school classics will be in heaven. Put on your thinking cap, and let's solve the mystery of Thimbleweed Park!

In 1987, a murder is committed in the sleepy town of Thimbleweed Park. Two federal agents are assigned to the case. Using the controller to select items, then actions, players switch between the detectives to solve puzzles and various brain teasers while moving from screen to screen. Like the LucasArts games of old, Thimbleweed Park will appeal to gamers looking for a story, a good one at that.

‘Night Trap: 25th Anniversary Edition’ Review: Retro Cheese

19 September 2017 8:10 AM, PDT

Ah the early 1990s, when everyone in politics wanted to blame music, movies, and video games for the “moral degradation” of our youth. As one of those yoots (My Cousin Vinny, go watch it kids), I was playing almost every game system available at the time, included the Sega CD. In 1992, one particular game on that system was the target of politicians for its “mature content,” and now that game is back for your PlayStation 4, 25 years later. Are you ready for Night Trap: 25th Anniversary Edition?

Anyone who was gaming in the early ‘90s remembers Night Trap. It was included in a slew of other games, like Mortal Kombat, at a congressional hearing about video game violence. Best described as a “playable B movie,” Night Trap uses filmed actors, and scenes are portrayed throughout a house where teen girls are having a sleepover. Your job is to use cameras in »
