Mike is back this week, so he was able to pick up Bryce’s slack when the conversation turned to X-Men and Rick’s review of Apocalypse. Also, Bryce and Mike tiptoe around full spoilers of Uncharted 4 because SOMEONE (Rick) has yet to complete the game. Still, a rather beefy conversation ensued.
Back at full strength this week, the SSWL crew talked their asses off, so let’s cut right to the chase. Here is what we covered:
News – Skype hits the Vita
News – Bioshock for the Vita will be the focus after Infinite
News – Metal Gear Rising for the Vita spotted in developer presentation
News – Uncharted series turned into movies by a fan
News – Adam Sessler leaves X-Play and G4TV
Review – Cytus (iOS and Android)
Review – Trials: Evolution (XBOX Live Arcade)
I’ve been going to the movies as far as I can remember and one of the best parts to me about going to the cinema when I was a kid was being able to soak up the ambiance and seeing the happiness of the people around you. I believe the first movie I saw in theaters was either Dumbo or Pinocchio. I enjoyed the experience so much that I wanted to go to the cinema as much as I could, but that was before I watched Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in LA. That was the worst experience I have ever had in a movie theater! It was really loud with people talking, kids throwing popcorn, and I swear I remember hearing someone playing a radio in the back. After that experience I remember every time my father said, “We’re going to the movies today,” I always responded back with, “The good one right?” Of course I was referring to either an AMC or United Artist theater, but when he would say no, I would just suggest we rent a movie instead.
Ever since then, I was always on the hunt for the best cinema experience I could find. So far, the best to me (and many others) would be the Arclight Cinema hands down and two weeks ago I would have agreed. But now, it’s the Island Cinema. I heard about the newly updated cinema from my co-host, Bryce Pilgrim and when he told me about it, I knew I had to go see what Island Cinema had to offer. With that said, here is my review:
This week we hit you with a little hidden gem; a show from the vault if you will. You could call it our pilot episode. In it we talk about our initial impressions of the first X-Men: First Class trailer. We also take the train off the rails a bit with some loosely related topics. Feel free to give us some feedback below as well as on our twitter page.
