Super Smash Bros. (Wii U) Review
This brawler layers tons of Nintendo character and charm with extreme variety in both choice and gameplay modes that evolve the fighting genre outside of the mainstream.

DAILY MANIFESTO

Netflix Picks (11-29-2010)

Posted on Monday, November 29 @ 15:42:16 Eastern by Blake_Morse
Nick: Dune - As some of you might know, I'm not the most culturally adept person in the world when it comes to references, especially anything in the 1980s sci-fi realm. I've heard of Dune but all I knew about it was giant sand worms. But now I know a little more about David Lynch, Patrick Stewart, Sting, Frank Herbert, and Spice. I mean, it's all about the Spice, really.








Josh: Striptease - It's mid-90s topless Demi Moore before age and before Ashton Kutcher got to her. It's Burt Reynolds being super sleazy and ridiculously over the top. It's Armand Assante doing his thing where he never seems quite sure what's going on in a scene. Striptease gives Showgirls a real run for its money in the "entertaining bad movie with naked dancing girls" category (that's a category, right?). In fact, I prefer it in some ways, mostly due to Ving Rhames acting at his most awesome capacity.







Eduardo: Drunken Master - Little known personal fact: I'm a huge Jackie Chan fan. This is one of his best movies along with Project A and the Police Story series. There's a bunch of laugh-out-loud moments; even the villain is likable in spots. Totally recommended if you're into martial arts movies with a little more than just fighting. Plus, who doesn't love irresponsible alcohol consumption on-screen?








Blake: Freak Show: The Complete Series - I can never wrap my head around the fact that so many good shows with Will Arnett, David Cross, and H. Jon Benjamin lending their talents have been cancelled in their prime. This is another fine example of a truly humorous series shot down much too early. Bonus props for being animated by our buddies over at Radical Axis, the same crew behind Aqua Teen Hunger Force and having Janeane Garofalo play a liberal bearded clam. There are only seven episodes in all; that's all you get, so enjoy them.





What are you folks watching this week?
