Here’s my pet peeve about video games set in Russia. So you know that letter they always use as an R, to make things look all Russian? This one — Я?
That is not an R. It is pronounced “ya.” So if you know any Russian, and you’re playing a game like Singulaяity, set on the secret island of Katoяga, it starts to get on your …
I don’t like to shave. I work from home, which doesn’t help matters much, and find shaving to be too time consuming to make it worth the daily ritual that so many men undertake. So you’d think I have no interest in electric razors, when the fact of the matter is that I’m constantly on the lookout for new shaving technologies that can …
A couple weeks ago, I published my spoiler-free first take on Inception. It was positive. A rave. A bubbly exclamation that was openly questioned out there by other media outlets. But I stand by every word.

But believe it or not, aside from being slabs of electronics that make phone calls, access the internet, and feature app stores, there’s really not a whole lot that a phone like the Droid X and the …
“What’s so great about this one?” “Should I get it?”
These are the most popular questions asked when people see that I am in possession of the latest iPhone. They then ask whether or not I’m having reception issues. No, I’m not having any reception issues and I like it very much. Whether or not you should get one is a …

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11

There are few things in life that I’m as committed to as buying the Wii version of Tiger Woods every year. Since I took my first virtual swing with Wii Sports back in late 2006, I remember thinking …
Oh Kirk Honeycutt: I typically agree with your reviews in the Hollywood Reporter. I would say that more often than not, we’re on the same page when it comes to blockbusters and genre titles.
But when it comes to The A-Team, I’m starting to wonder what you were actually expecting. You give the movie a rather vicious drubbing: …
The original Karate Kid was about self-discipline; the new incarnation is far more about self-preservation. And while at the outset that distinction is a subtle one, it’s jarring enough to give the whole movie a different, pulpy flavor that can, at times, skew uncomfortably violent.
