That’s unlikely to stop Ms. Fey’s attorney, though. With five trial wins under his belt, Phoenix Wright is already gaining the interest of LA’s media, although his deep links to the Fey Clan and reliance on bluffs will not do his credibility any favours.
The puzzle designs, if they can be called that, are a little too shallow. Mostly it’s just a case of, “here’s a slightly different, slightly taller configuration of wooden poles to climb; let us know when you’re ready for some more.”
The annual-Hunger-Games-sequel-producing machine is exactly as well-oiled as you’d expect. Mockingjay Part 2’s production values are through the roof… But this industrial approach to filmmaking might also be the movie’s biggest downfall.
Wyrmwood is a smartly-written film, peppered with genuinely original, intriguing twists to the zombie movie format. I got scared, I wrung my hands, I said “no no no no” under my breath, and I genuinely felt for the characters when things went wrong.
Making The Rewrite’s main character a genius writer, and having him bitch out other people’s films, seems nervy at best – at worst, it just feels a bit rude.
The writing is certainly a lot sharper than you’ll find in most kids’ films. I knew, when the film pulled off a particularly deft/daft cheese pun around the half-hour mark, that it had earned a permanent place in my collection.
I’ve been writing for a long time, but today marks the one-year anniversary of when I started writing stuff for money (or, at least, the one-year anniversary of my Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright review getting published). I’m having the best time, and I can’t wait to see what Year Two has in store for me. While I’ve got you […]
This film has everything: angry robot spiders, a zombie virus, PG-13 swearing, and hundreds of unnecessary proper nouns (Glade, Gladers, the Box, the Maze, Blades, Runners, Grievers, etc.). There’s a lot of naff charm to be found here.
I certainly can’t find anything that would make Nightcrawler “a modern masterpiece” (TwitchFilm), “deliriously thrilling” (The Playlist), or worthy of “★★★★★” (Empire). I just don’t get it.
Liam Hemsworth continues to deliver all the charisma of an office supply cupboard as Katniss’s other on-off love interest, Gale, but you can’t have everything, I suppose.
