You can get Super Mario 64 DS on the Wii U virtual console. That being said, playing it back to back with Super Mario 64 on Switch, I’m actually enjoying the old version more. Mostly it just comes down to not having full analog movement in the DS version. And I think the whole game feels sluggish on the DS/Wii U Read more

I agree that Mario 64 isn’t much fun compared to recent 3D Mario games, but it’s nowhere near as tedious as Sunshine. Not even close.

Super Mario Sunshine isn’t fun.  There, I summed up the “against” side :)

Maybe something good can come from this year. A new Nick Hornby is always welcome.

Agreed. He’s one of my favorite authors. How to Be Good and Juliet, Naked are masterpieces, in my opinion ...

Deep Impact told a better story, Armageddon was more fun and had better action. I liked them both. Read more

That’s why I have my “pop culture sleep machines” on DVD. The day I wear out my Dr. Katz and Home Movies discs is going to be a sad one.

One thing I’ve noticed as a middle school librarian is that kids really do just watch whatever’s on Netflix. Years ago, Doctor Who was very popular in my school, but it hasn’t been since it left Netflix in 2015 or whenever that was.

I mean the press release even says “‘entry-level’ spice” which to me says “Hey, White People: This is okay for you. You do not have to be scared of this sandwich.

I mean, they weren’t wrong as the release of the switch was 3.5 years ago.

Please fulfill whatever obligation you have to the theater distribution then just shunt it VOD or streaming. You honestly think we’ll be good by Christmas?!? Goddamnit, I just thought of the headache retailers(or rather, the poor retail staff) will have in staging a Black Friday sale.  No, of course, they don’y NEED Read more

At this point I’m not really worried about the directors’ vision. 20-30 years ago I might have. Movies looked like crap on VHS and standard-def television. But nowadays you can buy a decent 4K TV for under $500, and watch movies in their original aspect ratio with vivid colors and film-like resolution. It’s not the Read more

He was sent off on a side-mission in TLJ that ultimately didn’t matter, with the lame Captain Phasma being the only character from the first film he gets to interact with.

James Comey abused his office and lied to get Trump, his party’s candidate, elected, and didn’t decide that Trump was bad until Trump fired him. I think “Is he a good guy or a bad guy?” has a pretty easy answer.

It’s a complex situation.

As per Iger’s book, Abrams and Kasdan had a couple of months to develop the script for TFA. The reason for the rush was because the Disney Board disagreed with Iger’s faith in the Star Wars property and Iger was pressuring LucasFilm to start delivering. Originally scheduled for Summer 2015, Read more
