Birdman - Barney's Incorrect Five Second Reviews
Fun movie laden with super strong performances. It's hard to even spot the edits and cuts, it feels like you're watching an actual Broadway performance since the whole thing is so fluid (I still can't figure out how they filmed an entire movie like this exactly).

He gets to play a guy who you really hope you never...
 
 
Bolt Thrower #x: Fire in the Lake, Horror Films, Horror Games, Batman, Gothic Rock
Board Games My latest review up on SU&SD is Fire in the Lake. It took me on quite a personal journey, from thinking that Vietnam was the last gasp of traditional regular warfare to the understanding it was more the first irregular engagement of the modern age, complete with corrupt regime, terrorists and all. As a game, it's an impressive combination of strategy and history. But there's a lot of inertia there in terms of learning the rules, getting to grips with all the moving parts, and sitting through the play time. It's a minimum of...
