    Star Dreck - Alien Syndrome will alienate some, infect others

    Stupid video-game logic, rule no. 154: When thousands of fugly, bloodthirsty aliens take over a spaceship, it's best to send in a lone woman with a flamethrower. That's the entire plot of Alien Syndrome, a pseudo sequel to Sega's 1987 "run 'n' gun...

    Elvis Is Everywhere

    Bubba Ho-tep Limited Edition (MGM) Intentional camp is difficult to do well. It's a contradiction that usually comes off cutesy and forced. The old Batman series pulled it off, and it's been B-movie god Bruce Campbell's livelihood. But in a long c...

    The Robbie Awards - Third annual gala bitchfest

    If it's true that all the world's a stage, then it's entirely possible that that world resides in a galaxy made up of phony awards programs, at least in the minds of pretend theater critics who have a deadline to meet and a column to write. Therefore...

    Trick Play - NFL greats shake off the rust in All-Pro Football

    The concept behind All-Pro Football 2K8 is simply wonderful: Imagine a fantasy football league where you draft from a pool not of this season's top players, but of the greatest NFL players of all time: Joe Montana, John Elway, Dick Butkus, Jerry Rice...

    Prints and the Revolution - Graphic depictions

    I've always been a sucker for the graphic print. Today, printmaking is considered a valid process used by high-end visual artists. But the medium hasn't always been held in such regard. Because they could be produced quickly and in mass volume, p...

    Mechanical Bull - A few more changes would've helped Transformers

    Examining the roots of Transformers: The Game is deep stuff: It's a video game based on a movie based on a cartoon based on a toy. But unlike most laughably forced movie tie-in games (Da Vinci Code for the PS2, anyone?), there's good sense in cre...

    Cold War Reheated

    Red Dawn: Collector's Edition (MGM) John Milius' 1984 war pic was a mighty bonkers release even back then; not since the 1950s had something come down the pike so rife with Commie paranoia. Russian and Cuban forces invade the U.S. with tanks and c...
