Finding Vivian Maier - Barney's Incorrect Five Second Reviews
Really great documentary on finding 150,000 amazing photographs taken by a nanny who turned out to be quite a shutterbug. The movie then delves into who this person was and why they never came forward. All told through interviews with parents that had hired her, the children who she cared for and friends of hers as well. Don't want to give anything away but it's amazing, surprising and frightening what you find when you dig deep, deep into people's motivations. I really enjoyed this and have not seen a great documentary in many years. This...
I owe Lost Cities an apology. Lost Cities is the classic two-player card game by Reiner Knizia, a perennial favorite of gamers for more than a decade now. Not me though.

Yeah, sort of like in Source Code but more action, and with a bunch of humour which is great given all the death and...
Eight Minute Empire Review
Of all the lies that are told in the context of board gaming, the biggest and most odorous are those printed on boxes alongside the legend "playing time". Yet even amongst this exalted company, Eight-Minute Empire reaches new heights of outrage. Whatever it says on the box, the rules inside freely admit that it's probably three whole times as much as claimed, and my experience supports that. Of course, that's still only twenty to thirty minutes. So I might be over-egging this pudding just a little. The game itself is aggressive area majority...
