Hardcore Henry Blu-ray

Perpetually fighting to protect yourself in a revolutionary new circumstance can be a daunting prospect for many people, as they’re unaware of the potential danger the incident may bring. Accepting a total stranger’s seemingly altruistic help as you explore your radical new situation, despite not knowing their true motive, can be an even more frightening experience. Taking that leap of faith and unquestionably accepting the assistance of someone you don’t know is powerfully explored in the progressive sci-fi movie, ‘Hardcore Henry.’ Audiences can now repeatedly watch that tense drama unfold through the eyes of the film’s title protagonist at home. ‘Hardcore Henry,’ which is described as the first action film  [ Read More ]

Interview: Kevin Munroe and James Arnold Taylor Talk Ratchet & Clank (Exclusive)

Children can often times find inspiration from the most surprising and unexpected sources, especially those places that are usually believed to cause them the most intellectual harm. But some modern technology, which is often regarded to be one of the most harmful influences on kids, is surprisingly leaving a powerful and positive message on its users this week. The new CG-animated movie, ‘Ratchet & Clank,’ which is based on the iconic 2002 PlayStation video game of the same name, is a gripping reminder of the importance of accepting yourself in a society that largely emphasizes the most superficial aspects of life. The new inspiring animated film was directed and produced  [ Read More ]

The very first episode of “Mortal Kombat: Legacy” racked up 5.5 million views in a single week and has 70 million to date. Clearly Machinima and Warner Bros.

AWOLNATION Megalithic Symphony

I sold my soul to AWOLNATION roughly two years ago once I saw Aaron Bruno’s music video for ”Burn It Down”. The video, which featured Sam Ronson and Willa Ford, epitomizes why VH1’s “Top 20 Countdown” and the slim amount of music videos shown on MTV should not become an extinct fad of the 80s and 90s. Developing imagery is key to popularizing a song and AWOLNATION has a knack for conveying just that. The outfit’s latest song,”THISKIDSNOTALRIGHT” will be featured in the new video game, “Injustice: Gods Among Us”, which will be available everywhere April 16th. The video game’s soundtrack will be released digitally on the same day as  [ Read More ]
