The perils of the Hype Train…

The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

Netflix Picks of the Week (8/16/2010)

Posted on Monday, August 16 @ 17:00:00 Eastern by Blake_Morse
It's Monday, which means it's time for us spill the beans on what we watched on our Xbox 360s, PS3s and Wiis. This week Duke, Colin, and myself all veg out with some TV shows while Nick goes old-school with a classic animation.

Colin: Pushing Daisies - How many love stories have you seen about a necromantic pie-maker and the reanimated body of his dead childhood sweetheart? Pushing Daises, made by the same creator of Dead Like Me and Wonderfalls, creates a wonderfully kooky world where love attempts to conquer all obstacles, even the inability to touch each other. When Ned touches a dead body, it can come back to life. He touches it again, and it dies forever. If he lets the reanimated corpse stay alive for more that 60 seconds, another thing must die to take its karmic place. Great to watch with your boy/girlfriend, this strange show is a touchingly romantic modern fairytale told with enough humor to entertain all who watch.




Duke: Top Gear - All my friends (and my patient, eye-rolling wife, Miranda) know that I'm a bit of a car nut, and am happy to prattle away endlessly about the virtues of a R8 vs. the new LFA. If that sentence made any sense to you, you need to watch Top Gear. Endlessly entertaining, this British car show combines supercars and regular cars, real information, and zany challenges. The three intrepid hosts are some of the few people I consider to have a better job than I do.






Nick: The Adventures of Prince Achmed - A little piece of history, The Adventures of Prince Achmed from Germany is the first full-length animated film that, from a modern viewpoint, looks like a combination between the silhouettes of Limbo and the platforming of the original Prince of Persia. The story follows the traditional adventures of Prince Achmed from Arabian Nights, in which he meets Aladdin and an exotic princess, and is told much like a silent but colored film with dialogue presented in text blocks and the action told mostly through gestures and exaggerated mannerisms. If anything, it shows just how far we've come since then in animation techniques, yet it still highlights how effective classic films are in telling a story through actions rather than (many) words.



Blake: NewsRadio - Dave Foley of the Kids in the Hall plays Dave Nelson, a neurotic tightwad that manages a very eccentric news team on what is now a classic TV show. This is a prime example of what a great ensemble cast can do. Each character has their own unique quirks that endear them to the viewer and no one is safe from ridicule or satire. Whether it be the narcissistic radio host Bill (Phil Hartman) or the stations crazy millionaire owner Jimmy James (Stephen Root), there is always a hilarious plot being hatched or a situation to deal with. Jon Stewart, David Cross, Ben Stiller, and James Caan all make cameos along the way as well. While it may be a bit dated, it's still funny as hell. Especially the "Super Karate Monkey Deathcar" episode. The first 3 seasons are now available on instant queue. Check them out!
