One of the fun parts of this job is that we get to check out all sorts of weird and wonderful gear. Most of the time, things that seem crazy, are crazy. But every so often, something crazy is actually crazy good. These are the things that fit into that latter category.

So here are the top gifts we’d love to give this holiday season… if we only knew someone who we could give them to.

Everyone expected the latest entry in the legendary Fallout series to be big. Perhaps not dip-in-Pornhub-traffic big.

I wasn’t a big fan of 3 to be honest. I got bored quickly, not least from the brown-on-brown aesthetic.

I wasn’t even planning on getting 4 until I saw the trailer. OK, it looked pretty awesome. And blowing up irradiated monsters in my old home town had to be at least a little fun. Right?

There is no studio in the history of cinema that has a track record like Pixar. Nearly every one of their movies is at least great, most are awesome, and very few are below average (ahem, Cars 2).

I got to see a sneak preview early this week at the gorgeous El Capitan in Hollywood. Here are some thoughts on both those things.

There was no game releasing in 2015 I was more excited about than Star Wars Battlefront. The trailers looked amazing, it was built on a solid and known engine, and really, how do you screw up a Star Wars game where you get to attack AT-ATs on Hoth?

Well…

There’s a new Star Trek TV series in the works, set to debut in 2017. As a huge Star Trek fan I am really, really excited.

But it’s probably going to suck. Here’s why.

The Martian was one of the best movies I saw this year.

This was despite being one of the worst cinema experiences I’ve ever had.

With Hollywood now totally converted to making 90% remakes, sequels, and reboots, I think it’s about time someone gave them some new ideas…

…on reboots. Here are some forgotten classics due for modern movie treatment.

I’m roughly 60% serious. Or at least, 60% as serious as I ever get.

I can’t stop listening to it. I’m listening to it again as I write this.

Everyone likes to be a purist and say the original is better… but sometimes that’s just not the case.

Here are 6 of those sometimes.

For as long as there have been movies, there have been movie critics. I’m sure 100 years ago there was some proto-Ebert giving a thumbs up to A Fool There Was and a thumbs down to The Cheat, angering fans of both in equal measure.

Art, especially when offered for sale, begets criticism. Such is the nature of the world. As much as I eschew, and actively dislike, traditional movie reviews, I can see their place.

But what you can’t do, as a creator, is attack your critics. Trust me, you want to, but you can’t.

It’s especially bad when your spouse does it. Which is exactly what happened between a fellow reviewer and the spouse of the writer of, I’m not kidding, Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2.

Let the fireworks begin. This will be amusing.
