Blazing down the Iron Master’s death-defying tracks, guests will bear witness on his cursed journey to save The R.M.S. Queen Mary from her predecessor’s Titanic peril. All who dare will swelter and drip with fear as they traverse and crawl to their final destination: Iron Hell. The Iron Master has crossed oceans of time to reclaim his beloved Queen Mary. How far will you go?

IndieCade Moves To USC This October

IndieCade makes the move this year to the USC campus, marking and end to multiple years of being hosted in downtown Culver City. The independent game festival has called the city home since 2009. The main reason, the empty lot where most of IndieCade is usually held will be breaking ground this October for a new modern shopping center. A recent FAQ was released explaining the move with details on the move.

The Cinematic Arts Complex on USC campus becomes the new home for independent gamers and developers. "..in the sound stages, gallery areas, lobbies, breezeways, patios, and the outdoor grassy area," the FAQ says.

“It is the quintessential indie thing to do  -  come and crash on our couch,  - we help one another out,” USC IMD Chair, Tracy Fullerton told IndieCade. IndieCade hasn't stated that the move is permanent and is in talks with the City of LA and Culver City, but for now, due to a good relationship with USC  this October they'll be allowed to crash at the school.

So forget the firehouse and the tents outside and be ready to enjoy a college campus. Luckily, the Rams or the Trojans aren't schedule to play the weekend of IndieCade.

The King of Fighters XIV Review Everything Good About Playing A Japanese Fighter

When the narrator, of which there are two, one for me and one for you, says, "G-d-like," after a battle you have a Japanese fighter at its best. A ridiculous fighter with a huge roster all willing to battle it out for no good reason. Yes, there's a story mode; who the Hell cares? This is a game to either master or just take out and show to your friends and say Japan is still crazy.

Giving a pop idol electric powers crazy, check. The rack on Mai has a never-ending Gainax bounce, check. King of Dinosaurs, check. This game checks...out that rack on her. Woah, it's Japan at it's best. Children aren't children so it's okay that they're fighting to the death. They're robots and cyborgs and ninjas and all of them can be on your three person team as narrator's end your fights with saying bizarre statements.

Do I wish the statements  were more bizarre like, "Where's my lunch, someone has stolen it," yes.

In the newest game in the franchise you'll have fifty, count'em, fifty characters to play with and horrendously end long time friend-ships with.

They all have special moves and different ways of fighting. From the long legs of Zarina, from team South America, this beauty dances here way into the fight. If you haven't guessed Zarina and I will be wed...if only in my fantasies. As we study her and uh, the other caharcters we see that each character has their own style to kick-but. Her dancing fight style has her high-kicking to win!

For the technical side of the game you can now do up to three supers and they ain't easy to pull off. So super moves are in their for those willing to really master the game.

For the more casual player the game serves it's purpose of being a visual masterpiece of nonsense on screen with these characters performing strange moves and spouting nonsense as they fight.

The story mode is a thin few movies that will get some laughs at how funny it is, you'll unlock your final two characters if you get through the whole thing.

Backgrounds are good for some laughs. Navajoland looks to be the American midwest with hillbilly gawkers at a truck stop. There's more than expected backgrounds when fighters give you only so many arenas.

The King of Fighters XIV adds to the series of being another sight for the eyes of Japanese bizarre bewilderment. This needs to be at your home so your friends and you can stare out into it and find why Japan is Japan, it's nuts.

Loris Gréaud Sculpt Review It's No Del Toro Exhibit

Like sort of playing a Virtual Boy Game, but having no control over it comes Loris Gréaud's Sculpt. An all in red, by yourself, movie experience. Like looking into a stream of thought, it was hard to not want a horror movie to be shown to me in a theater all alone.

When I went last Friday evening for the last showing, 29 in all during a week, I was surprised at the amount of activity at LACMA. Families and foreigner visitors couldn't wait to see museum, some came purposefully just for the exhibit on men's clothing that I kind of chuckle at. I grabbed my ticket from the box office, you order them online, then pick them up when you arrive and for free.

You enter the Bing Theater. There's a seat waiting for you and one light beaming red nearly blinds you.

It's like the start of a dream, a nightmare maybe. From what I saw online I thought I would see a kind of art-house horror movie with the original Spider-Man's Green Goblin,Willem Dafoe in a starring role.

What was presented was a jumbled mess of ideas, a free-throwing stream of thought that was so filled with messages it was hard to comprehend what they were or to even really care what was going on. Dafoe is possibly an old man or reading a old man's book about his own existence or something?

All the while women are being sensually tortured around him with rope. It's got some strange Japanese bondage exploration to it that might be trying to say were trapped in thought or something?

Overall it's images pouring on images with a story of a man alone in the woods that's hard to follow.

This is hours before seeing a video game film completely in CGI, Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, both terrible films from a film critic's point. It was obvious that neither had a director who understood the basics of film and setting up shots. So it was more like someone had a basic knowledge of how a camera worked and shot sometimes nice panoramic shots.

Seeing in only through a red lens can be annoying, that's why I bring up the Virtual Boy, A 3D video game console, which caused headaches  and only showed one color, red. I never experienced a headache, but at fifty minutes long the thrill did void from me.

The film somewhat reminded me of, the 2009 film, Enter the Void. In the film a drug dealer dies and leaves his body, the film is in no way shot as well or has a linear story like Enter the Void, but the same sort of oddness to it. The oddness of giving yourself over to something else.

I can't say I recommend the experience or gained anything from it and much rather recommend LACMA's recently opened Del Toro exhibit.

If you would however would like to try Sculpt for yourself:

Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV Review: Sighing, Me Constanlty Sighing

Yesterday.

Yesterday, I went to the sold out showing of Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV at the Ahrya Fine Arts Theater to a sold out crowd of Final Fantasy fans. A line out the door; hard to find seats for four, a brotherhood of friends. In the lobby, local independent video game store World 8 was showcasing Final Fantasy games and goods.

Soon, after the lights flickered and a trailer for a documentary on Spock played...something happened.

SQUARE STILL DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO MAKE MOVIES!

Sigh, ten to fifteen minutes in I ask my bro in brotherhood, "Are we still in the opening?," and as I said those words the title of the movie came on screen as a joke to me on how dumb the film is.

Dumb. Dumb. Dumb.

Sigh again, where do you start with a mess like this about two kingdoms at war that you couldn't care less about.

Maybe the opening battle that sets up the constant nagging of not understanding of what's going on. I want to get into the racism and immigration messages put into the film featuring a primarily all white cast right away because of how badly the Japanese force feed it in there. Oh, or the use of drugs. The terrible acting, the writing that made the crowd laugh when it was suppose to be an emotional moment. Or how bad the guards were in the movie or just everyone. Everyone in the kingdom of Lucis did a bad job, much like everyone who worked on the film.

Spoilers

Sigh, the film starts off with both a flashback of King Regis leaving Princess Lunafreya behind to the empire of Niflheim. Confused, well to bad. He leaves the Princess to the empire.

Going on in the present the Kingsglaive, King Regis' personal army imbued with his powers are fighting a bunch of monsters and sh*t while mages are summoning a cloud of fire. That's when enemy forces send in a giant demon that shoot outs missiles everywhere. Dudes are throwing swords and being transported to where they throw their swords while fighting all kinds of monsters.

This scene should be cool. It's not though, because the director obviously has never directed a film before. Checking IMDB, he directed Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children back in 2005. So yeah, he hasn't directed anything.

Fight shots are so close and tight it's like viewing something on a small screen of your phone even when it's on the screen of a theater. You could barely see or make out what's happening in this fight.

This continues in every fight in the film. A complete sense of miscommunication with your eyes to your brain as to what's going on. Frustration overwhelms you, it's like missing every good scene as it's in front of you.

Lo and behold it's our main hero, the dude from Breaking Bad, Aaron Paul. I mean Nyx Ulric an outlander of sorts. Oh no, he's friend Libertus is under a big rock. Oh no, oh he saved him against orders because he's a hero!

Great writing, Takashi Hasegawa. I mean not really and I hate you and I marvel at how much of it was trying to be an action thriller based on American movies.

It's the trope of Japanese movies of just being bad again. And for many reasons this one was just trying way too hard, way, way too hard.

People casually don't care about insane levels of danger and death around them or just act stupid.

It's hard to not get sidetracked as I've told you so little of the plot so far in writing this review, it's just that bad.

Nyx saves his friend, then we sit down with his Kingsglaive crew who talk about racism and immigration policy in the wake of everything going on in the world. Japan can shut up on these issues because like the rest of us they have not mastered them at all. If it was on trying to care for so many old people as it's population gets ever smaller, then yeah, but here we get struck in the face with some dumb, dumb, dumb ideas.

The whitest people with cool haircuts I've ever seen were complaining about racism and immigration because they weren't born in the main city, but in the outer villages around it. I sighed deeply as the only racism I saw toward them on this was one guard saying to Nyx, you suck, cause you're a foreigner. That guard even redeems himself later and helps Nyx out. It's just hilarious to see Final Fantasy trying to tackle racism and immigration policy which it can in no way do on a level that isn't just a farce.

Then come the drugs, Libertus is taking some pills. He's also in a cast with a broken leg...but, those are the bad drugs, the movie tries to just jut in there. Just tries to smoosh in there, though we see absolutely no negative affects on him and one could say is taking to compensate for the pain of having a giant rock fall on him.

The Kingsglaive is rewarded by King Regis by having all their villages taken in by the empire in a peace treaty so the capitol city of Insomnia can stay free. King Regis is a terrible king. He just doesn't do a very good job on so many levels.

Oh, Square knows how to make annoying characters and the chancellor of Niflheim, Ardyn Izunia, is dressed like a drunken hobo with one wing glued to his arm. His look sets him up to be the most repeated bad guy in anime and the words that flow from his mouth, each a double entendre, make you want to sock him and get out hair clippers.

Ardyn shows up with the Kingdom of Niflheim to both present the treaty at first and as part of the diplomatic envoy, which all goes to crap. Yeah, it's a ruse, a ruse you saw coming a mile away.

The CGI crowds who raise their hands up in joy of the peace treaty celebration look straight out of early CG movies...on console. I don't even want to let go how odd the crowds looked in this. Who just raises their hands at celebrations? Do we not have enough celebrations or is just some odd thing that got stuck in Square's head? I distinctively remember seeing people oddly celebrate in Square games over the years. There would be less reason to celebrate in the city of Insomnia soon.

Then she arrived in the story, dressed in white, the cold unfeeling witch that is Lunafreya. Give her the worst character award. Who is to blame when three people are credited on the work of a character for CGI films. The voice actress, 3D-modeler or motion capture actress? Take your pick, because even with the slight premise  that she doesn't care about dying, she should be screaming like crazy every time something insane is trying to kill her or have some sort of fear in her, but no.

She's so cold, her face looks down on the polygon count and just her overall demeanor makes her unlikable. This is the princess, the princess, the major focus of the film. Her motion captured reactions are that of a forty-year old man, out of shape and frail. Her emotions are that of trained assassin, to old to be on the job and to stupid to give off the work for the pay. You just want her to leave the film as soon as possible. Now, sigh, it's a rescue mission for her and you can't shed tears enough for how annoying she is.

The third act is all about what many hate in games, an escort mission, that and a giant battle between living statues an demon monsters taller than most buildings.

To get to the end battle/escort mission we first have to deal with the giant Cthulu octopus on the transport ship with the Princess. The Princess was moved out of the city onto one of warships of the empire so the kingdom would be unprotected as the kingsglaive, the only army the kingdom, would leave it defenseless.

Before this happens Nyx has to warn the king about the attack and comes the fun of the worst guards in movie history. We see scenes where guards are told outright not to let anyone through the many areas of the castle. Nyx, just wanders through without any questions. The guards just move to the side, he doesn't even knock over anyone. The unintentional laughs from the audience said it all about how poorly constructed the film was.

On to Cthulu.

Fleet Commander:Hey let's put a giant octopus in one of our transports with it not strapped down or contained at all.

General:Great idea.

I don't know if that happened or what sort of air force planning happened, but they somehow got a giant Octopus monster on a flying ship and it almost killed the princess. Really unsure if the ships just have robots powered by magic on them or there were people on board. If a regular soldier got that mission I think he would just abandon that job. Because of the giant octopus.

Nyx saves the Princess from the Octopus, whose fairly smart. Because when the Princess, without any emotions gets onto another ship in the air while the Octupus in destroying the ship the octopus tries to escape onto another ship too, because it's ship is going down. That's one of the dumbest things I've written down in a while.

At the same time some to most of the Kingsglaive has betrayed King Regis, because he is a terrible leader, so members of the Kingsglaive are just killing each other. One... one of them sees Nyx kill another member of the team in defense and calmly asks, "What's your problem?," He gets stabbed right after that from behind.

Nyx then gets the Princess to the King to see him get murdered by General Glauca, which is a funny name to say in English, cause it sounds like the start of guacamole. Good riddance, you awful king. The Princess gets a magical ring at this point that imbues people with super powers or sets you on fire.

When people get set on fire, we laughed a lot in the theater. Sure the writer was trying to make it mean something, but we just laughed our hearts out when people were set on fire.

Sigh, now to the awful escort mission. There's some amazing moments to laugh at here: A car drives in reverse up a building with no magical powers. A great moment, one of the best, where Nyx out of nowhere starts talking about his little sister dying. The audience abrupted into laughter. This dialogue was so forced and so out of the blue you couldn't chuckle of how inappropriate it was for Nyx to suddenly start talking about her death. The dumbest scene in the movie.

It was revealed that General Glauca, who does have really cool powers and armor was some guy who was sort of Nyx's commander. If there had be any real character connection or if Nyx saw this character as a close friend or father figure it probably would have mattered.

Then Nyx gets the magical ring and gets even better super powers and summons statues to fight the invading forces. The statues even have the same powers of the kingsglaive where they can throw their weapons and then be transported to their weapons. It would have been great to watch if a competent director did the film. We had an idiot.

This is where questions like:
Why didn't the King activate these statues from the start?
Wait, were the statues always part of the defense of the city or did Nyx just power up the statues?
Why destroy a city that you've almost completely conquered that has no army or leadership anymore? It's kind of your city at that point.
What's happening right now?

An average person should be freaking out as giant demons and statues are duking it out as robot soldiers fall out of the sky, remember though none of this was focused on so try an imagine it happening as their is no video footage of this to really show, even when this gets released on Blu-ray.

Libertus cracks the line, "Well, you don't see that every day." To me thinking, "F-U  Libertus, F-U!" Really, you mean the destruction of essentially your life and the life of all you hold dear. Time to crack a joke.

Holy cr*p can the writers of this not make anything again.

As the insane battle goes on Nyx is fighting General Glauca the whole time. So they're all flying around as the giants fight each other, which looks, I don't know, and I was there, to much happened for me to remember any good moments.

There's a very unsubtle attempt to show a statue fighting a demon as Nyx is fighting the General, which was just directed so poorly it looked awful.

Nyx dies of the deal to get super powers stopping General Guacamole. What an effing depressing ending to a film. 

Oh, and Princess coldheart, after being rescued, just decides to leave and walk out of the city without any help?

Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV is as bad as it's title. Square Enix has learned absolutely nothing since it's previous two CGI films. Frankly, they copied the model of the first one getting some big name actors to voice the film while keeping a Japanese script that makes no sense to anyone. Failing on every level to entertain by even screwing up the action makes sure to set back anything the Japanese try to do in the field of CGI animation. This is while short films from Blizzard on Overwatch look so much better. Square you've done it again.

Hope the game is better than the movie.

List of sighs:
-You can't see sh*t in a fight
-Racism, just for white people now. White on white crime
-Immigration; no Japan, you don't no how to tackle this
-Drug problems; problems with explaining what are drug problems
-King Regis is a terrible king a deserves everything that happens to him for poor leadership
-Shut up Chancellor Ardyn, just shut up, ya dirty hobo
-Well, excuse me, Princess Lunafreya
-Who puts a giant Cthulu octopus on a flying transport?
-Your city is destroyed, not a time to crack jokes
-Would be nice to see the fight
-I hate that Princess

Give me Libertus or give me death!

Sony, Snatch as a TV Show Is A Dumb Idea, Fire the Executive Whose Doing It

Announced today, Sony wants the Snatch TV show to fail immediately by giving it to Crackle. What's Crackle, yeah, that's my point Sony. Crackle is the online trash can of Sony's attempts to have a version of Netflix. The garbage that some how became two Dead Rising movies you don't remember came out on the network(?)

Now Sony is poised to create at TV show based on a movie that I love, known for its visual flair, great cast, violence and cheeky racism into a cheap show on the internet?

Just stop making anything Sony other than video games, that's all you can do.

The series will be 10 episodes long, be one-hour each and stars Ron Weasly as the main character, someone named Charlie Cavendish. It'll be directed by Nick Renton, who has the IMDB page you would think of someone who has no right to make the show. No original cast & crew involved? Set for 2017 it will last a ten episode season, as already ordered, then fade away for being awful.

Try looking up the story on other sites and check out all the bad clip art for Snatch as no images for the show exist yet.

Jean-Claude Van Johnson

If you're a fan of over-the-freaken-top action movies you need to see the new Amazon Pilot for Jean-Claude Van Johnson, starring a bitter and hilarious Jean-Claude Van Dam. In the pilot Van Dam plays himself who is a retired actor who is also a secret agent. It's filled with the tropes of action films that it'll make your nostalgia explode out of you.

There's a Mr. Brown that's alluded to as JC's long time enemy, hopefully if the show gets picked up we can see Dolph Lundgren getting a better role than in Kindergarten Cop 2.

Go to Amazon and check it out for free now.
