    Uncharted 3 is a game of great ambitions. It tries to do so much, expand on so much, and if effort was the only metric on which to judge, it would be the best game in the series so far. But, maybe because of its rapid two-year development, it...
  • Investigating Every Sequel Tease in The Batman

    ?    GOOD BYE The Batman ends with the simplest riddle of all. Of course this isn’t goodbye. The film explored Batman’s psychological and greater perspective shift from the embodiment of vengeance to hope, something Gotham needs more than ever, but this is clearly a single step on a much...

    Amid a deluge of prestige true crime dramas, Landscapers vows to carve out its own identity by being different. But is it trying too hard?

  • ‘The Batman Superman Movie: World’s Finest’ Remains DC’s Best TV Crossover

    Across film and television today, every superhero property is connected to another from its inception. Shared universes dominate and, I admit, it’s enjoyable to see a large storytelling tapestry weaved across multiple series and films. But this does have a downside, something that was made apparent to me when...
