Dick Tracy Special: Tracy Zooms In [???]

 Dick Tracy Special: Tracy Zooms In [???] HOLY CRAP, I AM LOSING MY MIND. WARREN BEATTY OWNS THE RIGHTS TO DICK TRACY AND HATES DISNEY AND HAS A CONTRACT THAT THE CHARACTER WILL REVERT TO DISNEY'S OWNERSHIP IF HE DOESN'T RELEASE ANYTHING IN A TEN YEAR PERIOD SO THE 89 YEAR OLD WARREN BEATTY MADE AN INCOMPRESSIBLE SPECIAL IN CHARACTER AND AIRED IT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT ON TURNER CLASSIC MOVIE CHANNEL AND IT'S JUST ABSOLUTE NONSENSE.  PS. THIS IS BOTH TOTALLY UNWATCHABLE AND ALSO PURE ART.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance [videogame]

 Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance [videogame] I TRUELY AND LEGITIMATELY LOVE THAT THE STUPIDEST PEICE OF MEDIA IN HISTORY IS THE SMARTEST VIDEOGAME EVER MADE. EVERY METAL GEAR IS LIKE THAT BUT BOY THIS ONE IS LIKE THAT.  PS. THE BEST PART IS YOU GET THE STUPID JOKE MARIACHI OUTFIT MID GAME THEN PUT IT ON TO BE SILLY AND IT'S CLEARLY THE ABSOLUTE CANONICAL OUTFIT 

The Messenger [game]

 The Messenger [game] THIS IS THE OTHER GAME MADE BY THE SEA OF STARS PEOPLE AND I HAVE THE SAME OPINIONS ABOUT THIS ONE. IT'S A LOVINGLY MADE GAME THAT HAS JUST REALLY NEAT IDEAS THAT JUST KINDA AREN'T THAT FUN. LIKE IT'S AN NES NINJA GAIDEN CLONE WHERE AT THE HALF WAY POINT YOU TIME TRAVEL TO AN SNES LEVEL OF GRAPHICS AND IT BECOMES A METROIDVANIA AND THAT IS A SUPER GOOD IDEA. BUT IT'S ONLY EVER JUST KINDA OKAY  PS. IT'S WEIRD THAT THE 'TELL ME A STORY' WRITING WAS SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE GAME WRITING AND IT'S EVEN WEIRDER THAT SEA OF STAR WRITING WAS SO BAD WHEN I ASSUMED IT JUST GOT PINNED IN BY BEING STUCK FROM RANDOM STORY STUFF THIS MADE BUT THE TWO GAMES BARELY FIT TOGETHER ANYWAY 

Slice & Dice [game]

 Slice & Dice [game] THIS IS A GAME I WOULD SAY LIKE "OH YEAH, THAT GAME IS PRETTY GOOD, I LIKE THAT GAME WELL ENOUGH" THEN LOOK AT MY PLAY TIME AND IT'S LIKE 40 HOURS IN LIKE THREE WEEKS.  PS. I AM ETERNALLY BAD AT THIS GAME BECAUSE ANY TIME THERE IS A COOL COMBO I DO THAT INSTEAD OF WHATEVER IS GOOD

In the House Upon the Dirt Between the Lake and the Woods

 In the House Upon the Dirt Between the Lake and the Woods [book, audiobook] I REALLY *REALLY* LIKE THIS BOOK. THIS IS PROBABLY A DUMB PERSON'S ANALYSIS OF THIS BOOK BUT:  THERE IS A CERTAIN SORT OF STORY TELLING THAT ONLY EXISTS IN SPECIFIC VIDEOGAMES. DARK SOULS TYPE GAMES ESPECIALLY. WHERE BECAUSE EVERY STORY BEAT HAS TO END WITH A BOSS TO FIGHT THEY ARE ABOUT CORRUPTION AND MUTILATION, WHERE WHATEVER ANYONE WAS FACING HAS TO ULTIMATELY RESULT IN A THING YOU FIGHT AS A BOSS.  IT IS A REALLY INTERESTING SORT OF STORY TELLING AND I HAVE ALWAYS FOUND IT INTERESTING THAT IT EXISTS ALMOST ONLY IN VIDEOGAMES FOR VIDEOGAME REASONS AND YOU NEVER SEE 'REAL' STORIES COVERING THE SAME GROUND. THIS IS THE FIRST REALLY GOOD EXAMPLE OF A "LITERARY" TAKE ON SIMILAR IDEAS. THIS IS A SERIOUS STORY, BUT EVERY SINGLE THING THAT HAPPENS LEAVES EVERY CHARACTER AND THE WORLD ITSELF MUTILATED IN FANTASTICAL WAYS.   I MEAN AT ONE POINT A CHARACTER SEWS A CHAIN AND HEAVY METAL TRAP INT

Migration [movie]

 Migration [movie] I FEEL LIKE THE PART WITH THE HERONS WAS LEGITIMATELY GOOD THEN NOTHING ELSE IN THE ENTIRE MOVIE WAS EVER INTERESTING EVER AGAIN AFTER THAT. PS. THIS MOVIE WAS COMING OUT FOR LIKE 4 YEARS AND YOU CAN TELL THEY CHOPPED IT ALL UP SO EVERYONE KEPT GETTING CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT ON PROBLEMS THEY HAD NEVER PREVIOUSLY DISPLAYED. 

Frozen [movie]

 Frozen [movie] I SAW SOMETHING MAKE A JOKE THAT LIVE ACTION FROZEN IS ALREADY OUT AND IT'S ON AMAZON AND IT IS AND IT'S A 2010 HORROR DRAMA ABOUT SOME JERKS BEING STUCK ON A SKI LIFT.  PS. A MOVIE FROM DEEP IN THE CRAPPY YEARS OF HORROR MOVIES JUST BEING HOSTEL TORTURE PORN BUT NOT EVEN A GOOD ONE WITH GROSS SPECIAL EFFECTS.
