Not a big week to open the month of May, but we do have two big releases of note. Gearbox releases their new shooter Battleborn onto PC, PS4, and the Xbox One. We’ll see if the gameplay will win over Borderlands fans, or if its similarity will make them take a pass. On the big screen we get one of the more highly anticipated comic book movies of the year, Captain America: Civil War. Advance reviews have been good, and it’s already doing well at the box office overseas...Read More

And he succeeds in bringing it to life in the most spectac...Read More

Hardcore Henry Movie Review

That is, until now.
Enter Timur Bekmambetov, the director of such films as Wanted a...Read More
