“Of the Month” July 2016

Video Game of the Month:
yoshisWoollyWorld
Yoshi’s Woolly World

This game is frikkin’ adorable, and it’s actually a good bit of fun to play. It’s got a good balance of puzzle-solving and platforming action, and in fact it can be played either way (you can storm the levels and just go for the goal, or you can methodically choose to pry out every last secret from each level). The graphics are 👍👍👌. It keeps surprising me in delightful ways, like how rivers of lava are represented by knitted red-and-orange scarves being dragged across the ground. I also enjoy when the yarn aesthetic becomes important to play, like when you create a Chain Chomp by wrapping yarn around an empty wireframe. GOOD GAMES.

Movie of the Month:
deadpool
Deadpool

IT’S FUNNY, ALRIGHT!? F**K OFF! Seriously, I don’t know when I’ve laughed this hard in a movie theater. It holds up pretty well on repeat viewings; though the initial shock-value laughs are much diminished, the movie has an infectious energy and surprising charm. Ryan Reynolds nails the character. Just flawless. My only very-minor quibble is that I wish there had been more of a personality difference between the (presumably sane) pre-transformation Wade Wilson and the absolutely-nutty, post-transformation Deadpool. But that is a minor quibble in an otherwise excellent piece of entertainment.

Plus he tweets just generally funny stuffs:


Oh, and he also makes some truly bizarre Star Trek videos at his Youtube channel, Head Injury Productions:
