ONM Remembered – #152

“Her hunky alter-go, Jake, must then learn how to behave like a man, negotiating such everyday laddish hazards as dating, bragging and public urinal etiquette.” from N64 Magazine issue 17 (July 1998) This headline always caught my eye, but I must never have actually read it, because it’s basically a load of guff about Nintendo […]

Playing chess with cards

It wasn’t what I had planned for this month’s update, but here’s something: another chapter of that Zelda playthrough! What I had planned was a “some games I played in 2012” article, only this time I’d also be covering books, movies, TV shows and whatever else of interest. It got a bit hideously long and […]

Skythump

What strange and startling developments have occurred in the life of Ragey over the past four months? Not much, really. Well, for starters, my feet have somehow been inflicted with every injury known to man – scrapes, bruises, blisters, cuts, everything short of frostbite, from the heel to the sides to the toes. And even […]

My android’s head is an asshole!

I’ve actually watched a fair few movies in the past few months, but just haven’t had the interest or energy to review them – and also because who cares? (for those who do care, I aim to have one of those “Games I Played in 2012” articles by the end of the year and will […]

Drunken Irishman correctly predicts end of the world

Bomberman Fantasy Race has been ported to the new layout. Not much actually new, but you don’t have to look at that awful dark green tiled backdrop any more. Watched The Birds. A few days ago I’d caught that episode of The Simpsons that parodies it with the babies in the daycare centre, and figured, […]

“… he’s adopted.”

Went to see Avengers Assemble. Can’t say I was too disappointed, really. Expected some superhero rompy-time fun, and that’s precisely what I got. Just for giggles, let’s see if I can save myself the time of recapping and let a picture do the talking. … just pretend that the Hulk, Hawkeye and Black Widow are […]

Half cop, half man

Watched all three RoboCop movies earlier in the week. Thoughts!

Dream and friends

I watched Inception on April 13. Here’s a review from then! Heh. The internet has been raving up and down about it since its release… what, two years ago? I can’t even count the amount of Cracked articles there are about it, and apparently dubbing something mildly paradoxical as “[noun]-CEPTION” is the height of internet […]

Vestigial arms, romance and anatomy

Went to see John Carter last night. Had no expectations, but definitely enjoyed myself – it’s not the far-out, totally alien sci-fi experience I’ve been interested in seeing on the big screen, but it’s a fun ol’ romp with some fantastic eye candy. I’d be lying if I said I completely understood the story, though. […]

Bomb on board

We’ve got ourselves an update on the Bomberman shrine, and a new General Writing. Don’t forget to check the title tags! Watched Flightplan a couple of days ago. It’s a bit like two films wedged together – one is an atmospheric, almost psychological thriller about a crazy lady on a plane who claims to be […]

Housewife

Watched Monster House. Well, uh, it was nice to finally watch it, but it did nothing for me. Mind you, the fact one of the writers apologised for it might have skewed my first impression. There’s a grumpy old dude who don’t like kids! One kid, DJ, spies on the house and notices that toys […]

Soupy twist

I spent New Years Eve watching the 2009 Sherlock Holmes with the folks, and just so happened to get invited to see the sequel with my uncle on New Years Day. I can’t really say much, it’s about what you’d expect if you saw the first one – the same kind of romping around, the […]

Vertical

I watched Vertigo yesterday. I won’t deny it’s one of those classic movies that, although great to finally see, didn’t offer many surprises since it’s been parodied so many times. Heck, the Sledge Hammer! episode “Vertical” basically compresses the two hour-long movie into 22 minutes without too many omissions, if you don’t mind it being […]

Les Gees!

I watched The Iron Giant last night. I’m in one of those miserable curmudgeon-y moods where I’m totally uninspired and a colossal bore and curse arbitrarily to myself (because that’s what bummed people do!), and as such I’m really disappointed that I don’t even have much to say about it. But I really quite enjoyed […]

Fingere, fingere!

It’s that time of year, so you know what to expect from the blog: Blah blah cold, blah blah misery, blah blah needlessly graphic descriptions of snot and undesired bodily functions. I watched Volere Volare (or Wanting To Fly), an Italian movie my dad must have recorded off TV about twenty years ago. Maurizio works […]

Ugly motherfuckers have feelings too!

I watched Predator 1 and 2 over the past couple of weeks, and last night I watched Predators. Unless I want to subject myself to the Aliens vs. Predators films (and given how I burst out laughing when my brother recapped the plot of the second one, I can’t imagine I will), I’ve had my […]

The years move faster than the days

Well, September was a bit of a tizzy. Harking up and down across the country to attend a course during the week and then being too exhausted during the weekend to do anything. That routine hasn’t exactly changed, it’s just I had the pleasure of getting a cold and spending the whole week in one […]

Who defends the Defendor?

Just a heads-up – the Defendor review is pretty unfinished, it’s mostly just my notes cobbled together into a very clumsy whole. It’s an intriguing film and it really got me thinking of a lot of things to discuss, but I left the review off for too long until I’d forgotten a lot of what […]

“It was a nice thought, G.”

I rented Shadows of the Damned and finished it on Wednesday. I kinda knew nothing about the game – all I’d watched was the Two Best Friends Play video of it, and didn’t think much about it. Saw it for rental and thought “why not.” It’s the perfect game for a five day rental! Garcia […]

Chimp my ride

I’m like half a month too late to offer a punctual response, but the blog’s up and running again. Flying Omelette tells me Dreamhost had been upgrading their servers, and that must’ve prompted some crummy coding in the WordPress database to screw up… we think. I’m still not entirely sure what happened, but it’s up […]
