Pacific Rim: Giant Robots vs. Giant Monsters

by Ken Newquist / July 28, 2013

Pacific Rim is a movie that delivered exactly what it promised: giant robots fighting giant monsters on the eve of the apocalypse. It's not great drama, it's not mind-bending storytelling, it is giant robots fighting giant monsters, with enough story to keep the whole thing moving forward.

Sinking Battleship

by Ken Newquist / December 24, 2012

Every year for 20 years I asked for Electronic Battleship for my birthday. I never got it, and instead made due with the standard, analog iteration that didn't have cool sound effects. Flash foward: I'm 41, and I still don't have Electronic Battleship, but I did get to watch the cinematic disaster movie based on the game of the same name.

My 9-year-old self never saw that one coming.
