I know very little about this game other than that my boys from PC Gamer have been rocking it in beta for some time and enjoying it quite a bit. If you’re still purchasing retail versions of online PC game, don’t you do us a solid and do it through Laser Time?! Also available in a premium Collector’s Edition!
Men in Black
I know this one’s easy to hate on, especially if you remember it more for Will Smith’s song than the content of the movie itself. But I swear, it still works for me. Alien conspiracies, Tommy Lee Jones is in top TLJ form, and yeah, Will Smith is fucking funny in it. Sorry. Although, I certianly do wonder if the effects work hold up… Anyhoo, this and Men in Black II are being rereleased on Blu-ray this week, and they both come at a fair price with Ultraviolet copies and a free ticket to the new movie.
The Tim Burton Collection (7 movies)
Like most discerning film fans, I don’t have many kind words to say about the constant, tired remakery of Tim Burton, nor the release of his Dark Shadows that this set is no doubt meant to coincide with. However, if you can ignore that Willy Wonka square in the center, this contains all of Tim Burton’s best work (outside of Edward Scissorhands?) Pee-wee’s Big Adventure, Batman, Batman Returns, Bettlejuice, Mars Attacks! and two film I care very little for, all for less than $7 a pop. Not too shabby.
Mortal Kombat (PlayStation Vita)
Now here’s a port I can get behind! It’s basically what you got on consoles, with the added content that trickled out via DLC, and tons of Vita-exclusive content – including 150 extra mission to the Challenge Tower – for a lower price! Mortal Kombat’s had it rough on handhelds, but this looks to be the one that’s finally done it right while still taking advantage of the new platform’s features. Kudos to Warner Bros. and NetherRealm… Ah shit, Kudos already starts with a K!
I’m not sure if my opinion’s been marred by repeat HBO viewings as a teenager, but this always feels like the perfect teen movie to me. I was hardly a rich, spoiled socialite, but the conflicts, skateboarding, ska bands and naivity certainly mirror my own high school idiocy. Lots of great performances, and I find it ironic that almost the entire cast other than Alicia Silverstone all went on to become recognizable stars.
TONS OF BUNDLES!
You think I was kidding about the cheap ass bundles this week?! That Tim Burton Set above is hardly the only thing to by in bulk. Looks as if someone finally realized ancient movies aren’t necessarily worth full price in HD. TAKE ADVANTAGE!
