Wet Woman in the Wind

I caught this recently when it was on Mubi (no longer available), an entry in Nikkatsu’s rebooted “Roman Porno” series, in which they’ve gotten interesting directors to make soft core films, given lots of freedom as long as they stay on a relatively tight budget. I quite enjoyed this, as it’s a sort of surreal […]

Blade Runner 2049

After finally watching it last night, my biggest regret is that I didn’t go see it when it was in theaters (I only watched two movies in theaters this past year, Thor: Ragnarok and The Last Jedi, twice for the latter). I’ve said many times that Denis Villeneuve is currently my favorite director, and this […]

City on Fire

But City on […]

Reigns: Her Majesty

This has quickly turned into one of my favorite mobile games of the year. I enjoyed the first one, but I feel like this sequel is really superior, with a mix of terrific writing and a few little extra gameplay elements that get added to the choose-your-own-adventure base. Well worth getting.
