Werewolves Within is a 96-minute whodunnit romp that’s a surprisingly good time that’s fairly light on the horror but strong on the comedy and charm. And with a critic score of 86% and an audience score of 82% on Rotten Tomatoes, it’s one of the highest-rated video game adaptions ever.

Random Loot is a series in which I get to focus on one particular game, movie or even comic, be it relatively old or quite new, and then ramble about it, often going off-course in the process or using it to make a point about something else entirely. […]

Box Office Mojo seems to know when the release date for the Assassin’s Creed movie is going to be. A visit to the page reveals a date of May 22nd, 2015, a release date which would put it just one week behind Marvels’ The Avengers 2. Surely nobody […]
EA and Dreamworks have announced a sequel to the hugely popular Fast and Furious series of films which…..wait, oh, sorry, it says here it’s going to be a Need for Speed film, not a Fast and Furious film. Is there a difference? I mean, really? Anyway, EA have today announced that […]
