Fantasy Life doesn't speak to fantasy or life. If anything, it should have been called Routine, as the beginning of the game recalls the creation of a Mii, often a virtual version of a real person, on the Nintendo Wii. Its silliness notwithstanding,...

A City Sleeps marks Harmonix's first foray outside of pure rhythm games like Frequency, Rock Band, and Dance Central. It's not that much of a stretch, though, as a bullet-hell shooter is all about recognizing and responding to patterns, and many of the...

1. "Why David Lynch's Mulholland Drive Is a Great Horror Film." For the Vulture, Bilge Ebiri explains why. "This is about as perfect a 'horror' scene as one can imagine. The oddly floating camera, the strangely somnambulant delivery of the actors, the...

You have to at least give Ouija's filmmakers credit for doing what seemed practically impossible. They made a horror movie that somehow has even less narrative propulsion than the board game upon which it's based—a game that involves players slowly...

It's not exactly unfair to expect Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition to have the same high shine of polish that the Tomb Raider re-release did, but perspective is important. That Sleeping Dogs only receives the slightest of graphical upticks—primarily...

It's rare to have a game prove its greatness in the loading screen. But Bayonetta did. While waiting for the level to load, some dark programming magic allowed you to practice different attack combos, with a counter to show which moves you hadn't tried...

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!, which takes place on the moon of Pandora, the setting for the first two entries, isn't exactly a great step forward for mankind, or even the franchise, as there's little here that hasn't been cell-shaded and seen before....

At the very least, David Leitch and Chad Stahelski's John Wick has the good sense to get most of its brief backstory out of the way within the first 10 minutes. The directors give glimpses of the titular retired assassin (Keanu Reeves) saying goodbye...

Much like Billy Corgan and his ever-revolving Smashing Pumpkins, or Trent Reznor's moniker-slash-band-name, the Tindersticks title belongs to Stuart Staples, and he's used it reflexively over the years to support another career interest: Since the early...

1. "Keanu Reeves on Not Receiving More Offers from Hollywood: 'It Sucks.'" Keanu Reeves continues to star in fun new action movies. But he still wishes there were more offers on the table. "No, it sucks, but it's just the way it is. You can have positive...

With "Edward Mordrake (Part 1)," American Horror Story: Freak Show plays to its strengths, sounding its themes through action rather than talk. Jimmy's (Evan Peters) already reliably tedious, half-true blathering about the equality and sameness of freaks...

A question that's conspicuously and consistently brought up in Federico Fellini's La Dolce Vita is whether journalist and gadfly Marcello Rubini (Marcello Mastroianni) is more interested in literature or the "news." The latter term is used loosely in...
