New releases for the week of Monday, April 20, 2015

Very lackluster week for new releases, with the biggest being Shovel Knight coming to all three of Sony’s platforms. Not much arrives on home video either, where we get the first season of Teen Titans Go!, and a trio of action movies- The Marine 4: Moving Target, Everly (with Salma Hayek), and the Liam Neeson led sequel Taken 3. Theatrical releases are a mixed bag, with comedies Little boy and Rock the Kasbah, the thriller The Forger, the action adventure Kung Fu Jungle, and the fantasy The Age of Adaline. So, off we go to this week’s short list and, as always, release dates are subject to change.

New releases for the week of Monday, April 13, 2015

Two big releases this week allow players to indulge themselves with plenty of chaos and bloodthirsty action. Mortal Kombat returns with all new fatalities and a hefty roster of fighters to do bloody battle with for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One (those PS3 and Xbox 360 owners sadly have to wait awhile, as the version for those systems has been delayed). PC owners get to jump into a life of crime and many leisure activities with the release of GTA V. Coming to home video are an array of choices, from horror (The Babadook, Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death), drama (Big Eyes, Map to the Stars), animated (Batman vs. Robin), and action (The Man with the Iron Fists 2, Kidnapping Mr. Heineken)...

Daredevil: Hell’s Kitchen gets its hero in a worthy series

NOTE: While I’m going to try and keep this review as spoiler free as possible for those who haven’t seen all 13 episodes for the Netflix series, some minor ones may creep in here and there. For the most part, this will be a general, overall review of the entire series, without taking each plot point in turn for the individual episodes.

Daredevil leapt off the comic book pages to the big screen in 2003 and wasn’t overly received well by either fans or critics. Some complained that Ben Affleck just wasn’t right for the role of Matt Murdock, that Michael Clarke Duncan brought nothing to the role of Wilson Fisk (aka The Kingpin) other than his size, that Colin Farrell was a bit over the top as Bullseye, and that Jennifer Garner’s Elektra missed the mark...

New releases for the week of Monday, March 30, 2015

Well folks, a quarter of the year is gone and so far it’s been a pretty good one for gaming. Releases are a bit on the lighter side this week, and for gamers not looking to make death their friend they’re a bit less lethal as well. The big game of the week is this year’s installment of the Sony baseball exclusive MLB: The Show. There have been several tweaks added to MLB 15: The Show to make hitting, fielding, and pitching more dynamic, and those with last year’s entry can carry their saves forward. Xbox fans aren’t left completely out of the stadium and can enjoy their own baseball action with R.B.I. Baseball 15...
