Story telling at its best

It is not often that a video game gets a perfect score. Many have come close, some have made it, but most are considered nothing more than average.

Not So Stealthy Ninjas

Ninjas are silent and shrouded in darkness by tradition, trained to be a knife in the shadows. Japanese folklore depicted ninjas as masters of magic, able to completely vanish into shadows without a trace, able to walk through walls along with a handful of other supernatural powers.

Fee-fi-fo-fum, this movie isn’t much fun.

Jack the Giant Slayer, the most recent addition to the genre of modernized fairy tales, is a CGI driven adventure film made for the whole family…or is it?
