Video Game Review – Randal’s Monday

20 November 2014 1:14 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dave Davies reviews Randal’s Monday…

From the out it’s clear that Kevin Smith has had little to no influence on Randal’s Monday except allowing the team at Nexus Game Studios to use his characters of Randal, Jay and Silent Bob. Tellingly twitter maestro Smith has not mentioned the title once since release, and having played it, I understand why he’s more excited by his cameo in Lego Batman 3.

That’s not to say it’s a bad game, good point and click adventure games are few and far between now, especially ones created outside of a Kickstarter campaign, but sadly Randal’s Monday disappears into it’s own geek world, pop culture references clutter the locations and self-referential dialogue wears thin before the half way mark in the game.

Borrowing heavily from Bill Murray’s Groundhog Day, Randal is stuck repeating the same day over and »

No Good Deed review: Idris Elba exudes menace in undemanding thriller

19 November 2014 7:56 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Sam Miller; Screenwriter: Aimee Lagos; Starring: Idris Elba, Taraji P. Henson, Leslie Bibb; Running time: 84 mins; Certificate: 15

Sometimes you fancy the finest caviar known to humanity. Other times you fancy some greasy fish and chips. No Good Deed belongs in the latter category. It's an American thriller wrapped up in a day old newspaper, unashamedly devoid of artistic pretensions and providing a very palatable, unchallenging experience that rises above mediocrity thanks to a killer performance by Idris Elba.

The Luther star exudes a mesmerising sense of menace as Colin, described by a judge as a "charming, malignant narcissist", who escapes from incarceration, crashes his car and seeks refuge at a nearby house. He plays all innocent and nice to fool middle-aged mother Terry (Taraji P Henson) while her husband is away, but the arrival of her seductive (and thoroughly one dimensional) friend Meg (Leslie Bibb) threatens to trigger Colin's malevolence. »

‘Randal’s Monday’ Review (PC)

13 November 2014 8:14 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

If there is one thing that geeks like it’s a reference to their favourite game, television show or film.  Randal’s Monday is a new Point & Click adventure game that is full of them, everywhere you look you will see an Easter egg trying to get your attention.  Taking an old fashioned style to the adventure game it isn’t exactly one that fits the Telltale Games model of being overly emotional about everything, this is one that looks for laughs and when Jeff Anderson and Jason Mewes are in it, fans of Clerks start to take notice.

Jeff Anderson voices the part of Randal Hicks, a man very much like his Clerks character and Mewes is of course, Jay.  Silent Bob does make an appearance too but is not voiced by Kevin Smith (and yes, Bob does provide his sage like advice).

Back to the game though, Randal »

30 Laughable 'Oops' Moments From Your Favorite Comedies

13 November 2014 2:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There's one simple reason we watch comedies: to laugh. So, let's face it, a comedy doesn't need a perfect plot, sharp editing, or great camerawork to be considered a classic. But that doesn't mean movie mistakes are any less intriguing. Great comedies like "Groundhog Day" and "Anchorman" can easily brush off the occasional continuity error, though there's no guarantee that we, as viewers, will just overlook them.

In that spirit, check out the gallery below for 30 comedy "oops" moments.. As usual, all photos come courtesy of »

Randal’s Monday Review

12 November 2014 6:50 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Back in the early 2000s, if you had asked me whether or not I would’ve enjoyed playing an old-school point-and-click adventure game featuring Randal from Kevin Smith’s cult classic Clerks, my answer would have been a resounding, “Absolutely.” Fusing the humor and wit of Smith’s beloved comedy with my singular passion of gaming would have been a no-brainer. Currently, however, I’m not sure why Nexus Game Studios felt the need to revisit characters from the Clerks universe, and transplant them into a world with an inordinate amount of pop culture references.

Randal’s Monday follows Randal; a selfish, lazy, kleptomaniac. As we’re first introduced to the character, we find him appropriately getting wasted with his best friend Matt and his fiancé as the couple celebrates their engagement at a local pub. After a heavy night of drinking, Matt loses both his wallet and ring, the »

Z Nation, Ep. 1.09, “Die, Zombie, Die…Again”: Another example of show’s poor footing

8 November 2014 7:31 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Z Nation, Season 1, Episode 9, “Die, Zombie, Die…Again”

Written by Dan Merchant

Directed by Tim Andrew

Airs Fridays at 10pm Est on Syfy

Z Nation came out of the gates in its first few episodes with unapologetic force. Seemingly promising a series that stood firmly against anything melodramatic or clichéd by actively making fun at every turn, the show appeared as though it would be a great palate cleanser for those who are sick of stories about the undead. Unfortunately, the episodes that comprise the last half of this first season have been fairly meager attempts at achieving drama or tension, and “Die, Zombie, Die…Again” is yet another disappointing installment.

Mack and Addy return to our television screens after splitting from the main group of survivors and not being present in the last episode. Addy is still plagued with confusing and terrifying visions of zombies and gore, all while »

X Factor can do better when it comes to mental health stigma | Pete Etchells

8 November 2014 7:30 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Lola Saunders rendition of Crazy on the show last week, which featured dancers in straitjackets, highlights how everyone needs to try harder if we want to end mental health stigma

One thing that I dont understand about why mental health stigma still exists is that theres nothing difficult to understand about mental health. Its discussed frequently in the media, and there always seem to be high-profile charity campaigns trying to raise awareness. Despite this though, it feels like were in a bizarre version of Groundhog Day: a constant and repetitive battle against mental health misconceptions and misrepresentations. Last year, Asda was slammed for selling mental patient fancy dress costumes for Halloween. This year, Jokers Masquerade was criticised by MP Norman Lamb for selling Skitzo costumes. And then theres the X Factor.

Last week, Lola Saunders was voted off the show, after performing a cover of Gnarls Barkleys Crazy on the Halloween-themed show. »

Meet the Cutest Cat of Awards Season: Felix From St. Vincent

31 October 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

All the promotion for St. Vincent has centered around Bill Murray. It makes sense: He's the star of the movie; and he's Bill Murray, the internet's favorite uncle. However, those who've seen St. Vincent know Murray isn't the breakout. And, no, it's not the little kid. It's the cat. Murray's character Vincent has a cat named Felix, and it's the best cat, full stop. He's just a wonderful, fluffy, lush Persian with a face so grumpy, it makes Bill Murray at the beginning of Groundhog Day look like Bill Murray at the end of Groundhog Day. Vulture has exclusive high-definition screenshots of the cat and an interview with Steve McAuliff, the man tasked with the surely wonderful job of training this angel with fur.   Can you tell me a little bit about the cat? There are two cats. They’re doubles of each other. They’re Persians named Teddy and Jagger. »

'Vampire Diaries' star Chris Wood: Kai is the show's Ted Bundy

When season six of The Vampire Diaries began, it seemed bad enough for Bonnie and Damon to be stuck in some sort of alternate world far away from those they love. But as they soon discovered, things could get worse: They could be stuck in an alternate world far away from those they love, with a murderous psychopath. By now, fans know that Bonnie and Damon are trapped with Kai, a former member of the Gemini coven who specializes in stealing magic from others and more generally, killing his siblings. But considering he's the only one with any idea of »

Review: Edge of Tomorrow

22 October 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

The year is 2025, and once again the human race finds itself in yet another clichéd fight for survival. However, on this occasion it is the Alien's cognitive ability that threatens us most, rather than their over-powered weaponry or unforgiving size.

Combat evolved, the humans efforts are seemingly futile, with victories fewer and far between. However, highly strung propaganda and vivacious speeches from leading political figures ensure a constant recruitment drive, and none are more inspiring than Major General Cage (Tom Cruise) - a charismatic personality whose emphatic belief in the ultimate victory is somewhat infectious. It's as if Cruise is playing Cruise, because that same charismatic personality is what we've come to love and respect in regards to the veteran actor.

However, when ‘Cage’ is told he will be heading the front-line into direct combat in Paris, France, the mood changes. Until then his weapon had been words and his combat inspirational… »

Edge Of Tomorrow: a case of mishandled marketing?

22 October 2014 7:57 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sci-fi action thriller Edge Of Tomorrow sagged at the box office, despite glowing reviews. Was its marketing to blame, Ryan wonders...

Looking back over Edge Of Tomorrow’s brief history, and it seems clear that it was a production with something of an identity crisis. Adapted from a Japanese story called All You Need Is Kill, the movie went by that name right up until the summer of 2013, when Warner Bros abruptly changed the title to Edge Of Tomorrow.

Then, when Edge Of Tomorrow got its home release a couple of weeks ago, it seemed to have been given another name change. On its DVD and Blu-ray box, the tagline Live. Die. Repeat, is far more prominent than Edge Of Tomorrow’s title - the movie’s even listed in some online marketplaces as Live Die Repeat: Edge Of Tomorrow.

It’s the latest curious development in the life of »

Video Game Preview – Randal’s Monday

20 October 2014 8:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dave Davies previews the new point and click adventure Randal’s Monday…

Randal’s Monday should be a Kevin Smith fan’s dream, a nerdy, geek-fest of a point and click adventure (arguably the nerdiest of genres), the perfect way to celebrate 20 years since the release of Clerks. However, the preview of Nexus Games Studios’ latest adventure sadly appears to over geek the pudding.

Playing as the titular hero, voiced by everyone’s favourite Video Store slacker himself Jeff Anderson, the game plunges you into a Groundhog Day-esque storyline revolving around your kleptomania, your best friend’s suicide and a golden ring which holds power over those who possess it.

It’s clear from the outset that Mr Smith’s involvement has been little more than providing the original character (a different Randal to the Randal here) and allowing a “cameo” from himself and Jason Mewes. The dialogue, although »

Five reasons why we love Bill Murray

17 October 2014 11:40 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

With St. Vincent in theatres this weekend and Ghostbusters reboot news flooding Twitter, it’s seems like everything’s coming up Bill Murray lately.

Though an enigma off-screen, Murray has long-established his position as one of the funniest and most consistent comedic actors in film history with an output of modern classics like Groundhog DayGhostbustersCaddyshack,Rushmore, and Lost In Translation.

According to Emma Stone in Zombieland, Bill "has a direct line to my funny bone." We agree with you, Emma – though we probably wouldn’t go so far as punching a child for not knowing who Bill Murray is, Woody Harrelson.

So, yes -- with the exception of some the participants of his infamous "Saturday Night Live" era feuds -- everybody loves Bill Murray. But why exactly is Bill so universally loved?

We try to pare down our reasons for loving Bill Murray down to five, but we fail, »

Edge Of Tomorrow Blu-Ray Review

15 October 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Doug Liman

Starring: Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton, Brendan Gleeson

Certificate: 15

Extras: Operation Downfall – Adrenaline Cut, Storming The Beach, Weapons Of The Future, Creatures Not Of This World, On The Edge With Doug Liman, Deleted Scenes

People can be split into two groups; those that think Tom Cruise is the finest leading man of a generation, adding energy and quality to all the films he’s worked on- and those that would like to see him killed over and over again. Well, the stars have aligned and humanity can unite, as Edge Of Tomorrow serves both camps.

Cruise plays Cage, a battle-shy army major demoted to private following an act of cowardice. Unfortunately for Cage, his slip in rank coincides with a seemingly un-winnable war against super- intelligent Matrix-esque metallic octopus aliens. So far, so silly (but good silly like Starship Troopers, not bad silly like Pacific Rim »

Bill Murray on ‘St. Vincent,’ Fame and the ‘Virus’ of Oscars Season

14 October 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For Bill Murray, the idea of attending Bill Murray Day sounded like punishment. So at last month’s Toronto Film Festival, the comedian was having serious trepidation about the special day designated to showing his classic films “Ghostbusters,” “Stripes” and “Groundhog Day,” followed by the premiere of his latest comedy, “St. Vincent.” The celebration unfolded like a cross between Comic-Con and a political rally, with an army of fans in Bill Murray masks marching en route to the screenings.

“The whole thing gets more complicated as it draws closer, and you feel such dread about it,” Murray says in an interview at his hotel before the hoopla begins. “I’m nervous. All I can think is I feel like the Statue of Liberty covered with maggots. I feel like I am going to be assaulted! Why am I doing this?”

Newcastle Transfers: Andy Carroll Offered Again

12 October 2014 1:39 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Adam Davy/Empics Sport

It’s like Groundhog Day in Newcastle. Too few strikers, too few goals and inevitably the answer comes in the papers in the shape of the cumbersome, off-the-pace shape of Andy Carroll. The big Geordie, who left for pastures new in 2011 and came unstuck spectacularly with a giant £35m fee hanging over his head, has once more been linked with a move back home.

Usually it’s a red top that defers to the story ahead of the opening of every transfer window, as the striker flatters to deceive at West Ham and falls further down the pecking order, but this time it’s from someone a little different. Of all of the currently banned North East journalists, Mark Douglas is usually the best, and it is he who says that West Ham are looking to shop Carroll around in January, and that they will offer him to Newcastle. »

Anybody who has played computer games (and who hasn’t?) knows how useful the restart option is, or the more annoying forced respawn from death.  To die at a tricky part of the level and just be able to restart at a checkpoint or recently saved position helps you adapt your strategy and retry what you did wrong, till you finally make it past that tough part and reach the end of the level.  This is exactly what Tom Cruise has the ability to do in Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow.

Live Die Repeat: Edge Of Tomorrow Blu-Ray Review

11 October 2014 8:20 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A funny thing happened at the multiplex this past summer. Tom Cruise toplined a flashy, expensive blockbuster called Edge of Tomorrow, filled with all manner of explosions, nasty aliens and time-travel shenanigans – and it opened not only low, but shockingly low. Where was the love for Cruise, once a highly bankable star? And the actor aside, why didn’t people come for the same kind of popcorn thrills that have made even obviously awful flicks like every Transformers so successful?

A lot of people blamed the forgettable and generic title, which is admittedly the film’s weakest facet. And though I’m sure the blame doesn’t rest solely there, Warner Bros. clearly felt strongly enough about it to “rebrand” the movie for home platforms. Hence, Edge of Tomorrow is now Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow.

Exclusive: Virgil Films has acquired U.S. digital/VOD rights to Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me, a feature-length documentary tracking the country icon and Alzheimer sufferer’s final “Goodbye Tour.” Directed by actor and filmmaker James Keach (Walk The Line), I’ll Be Me gathers a star-studded lineup of country greats and celebrities from Bruce Springsteen, The Edge, Paul McCartney, Blake Shelton, Sheryl Crow, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Taylor Swift, Steve Martin, and Chad Smith to former President Bill Clinton in appreciation of Campbell, who crooned hits like “Gentle On My Mind,” “Galveston,” “Wichita Lineman,” and “Rhinestone Cowboy.”
