Film Review: ‘Green / is / Gold’

21 June 2016 12:57 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“If you’re going to do wrong, make sure you do it right.” This is what counts for brotherly wisdom in “Green / is / Gold,” a coming-of-age story about a 13-year-old who’s introduced to the family weed business, but it’s one of the film’s many small virtues that it takes such a cavalier line seriously. Set in the hills of Northern California, where marijuana growers can thrive in isolation, Ryon Baxter’s winning debut feature follows two brothers living on the fringes — of society, of the law, and of a future that’s by no means certain for either of them. That Baxter and his own younger sibling, Jimmy, play the lead roles adds to the authentic, lived-in quality that sets the film apart. Winner of the Audience Award at the L.A. Film Festival, the film should harvest interest from micro-indie distributors and serve as a calling »

Dirt Rally Review

9 April 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Few genres have more dedicated fans than simulation racing games. After all, that’s an audience that purchases expensive driving wheels to ensure they get the most accurate experience possible. That’s why I don’t envy developer Codemasters, who has to juggle pleasing that fanbase while also making sure their racing games are fun for a wider audience. It’s something that only a few developers have nailed, namely Turn 10 with the Forza series, as it continues to be a challenge to this day.

Codemasters’ latest racing sim, Dirt Rally, is a triumph in realism. Never before has a rally racing title felt so much like the real deal. A large part of this is thanks to the fantastic job that Codemasters has done with incorporating a co-driver into the game.
