Evil Dead Review

9 Apr

Head over to the ZEFR-U Blog to check out my review of the remake of Evil Dead. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie despite its paper thin plot and weak characterizations, and was also thoroughly grossed out by its ridiculous gore. Best horror film to come out in years, and well worth the price of admission. [...]

Game of Thrones- “Dark Wings, Dark Words” Recap

8 Apr

George R.R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire series is an extremely complex and complicated collection of novels, so much so that by book four they cease to feature any central narrative or arc and kinda just tell you what’s going on in Westeros in real time. It’s kind of astounding that a television adaptation [...]

Game of Thrones Season Premiere Recap

1 Apr

Head over to the ZEFR-U blog to read my take on last night’s season three premiere of Game of Thrones. There’s so many characters now that the show feels a little all over the place, but it’s still amazing and solid. Not jumping the shark, and a lot of surprises for people like me who’ve [...]

The Walking Dead- “This Sorrowful Life” Recap

25 Mar

Head over to the ZEFR-U Blog to read my latest Walking Dead recap. I expected the episode to be nothing more filler designed to further stall the inevitable showdown of Rick vs. Governor we all know is coming. It was actually pretty great and focused on one of my favorite actors on the show, Michael [...]

Macho is Bullshit- Thoughts on the “Girls” Finale

19 Mar

I got around to watching the season finale of Girls last night and was pleasantly surprised. The first season blew me away and really hooked me, but the follow-up has been uneven to say the least. Things were looking good at the start. Donald Glover cameoed in a couple episodes. There was more Ray, and [...]

You Know What’s Cool? Board Games.

7 Sep

And I’m not talking your pussy mainstream board games like Monopoly or Sorry or the Game of Life or some bullshit like that. I’m talking Fantasy Flight Games- board games for hardcore gamers. I first discovered Fantasy Flight when Alison and I spotted a Game of Thrones inspired game called Battles of Westeros in Barnes [...]

Jurassic Park Is a Near-Perfect Movie

31 Aug

Alright- I know I said I wouldn’t write about pop culture anymore, but… well, I lied. What I meant is I wouldn’t try to pretend like I’m the poor man’s IGN or AV Club or something. But I feel like it’s appropriate to write about pop culture when discussing how if affects my life and [...]

Alien vs. Predator Marathon, Part 4

11 Jun

3. Prometheus (2012) SPOILER ALERT Yeah, yeah- I know. I’m breaking the chronological order of this marathon. But I just saw Prometheus on Friday and it’s still fresh in my mind, so I figured I should break protocol and write about it while it’s still the talk of the internet. Plus, I’ve decided I only [...]

Alien vs. Predator Marathon, Part 3

5 Jun

Aliens (1986) Special Edition God, I love this movie. Combined with Terminator 2, Aliens is an example of an action director at the peak of his career. Say what you will about Avatar and Titanic, there’s no denying that at the turn of the 1990s, James Cameron was the king of action. A lot of [...]

Alien vs. Predator Marathon, Part 1

17 May

Fuck yeah, baby!! IT’S ON!! I know what you’re thinking. Well, maybe. If you’ve never been here before you’re probably thinking “Who the fuck is this Alex Hilhorst kid?” If you’re one of my friends or stumbled upon this site while Googling the phrase “Mass Effect 2 Best Game Ever,” you’re probably wondering “What about [...]
