If you want more of my movie opinions, pictures of a bunny AND some data analysis regarding movies (along with some other off-topic stuff occasionally), please check it out.

Don't worry, I will always post my reviews on Criticker too because I love this site more than my own family (don't tell them) and this has been an incredibly valuable resource/tool for me. Plus I appreciate all of you people who have ever reached out to me or starred my reviews. I can't quit you, Criticker, I just want to make some money at my website and hopefully someday quit my crap job.




Anything 51 and up is a recommendation, meaning you aren't wasting your time seeing it. Anything between 51-79 ranges from mediocre to very good. Anything 80+ is what I call a "Great Movie" and it's a must-see and is awesome to various degrees. Anything that's a 50 is something that I'm a fence sitter on (meaning I'm too useless to actually be able to make up my god damn mind) so it could go either way. 49 and under means you should avoid. Under 10 means I was probably raped by the movie or, at the very least, fondled. Despite the effort I've put into explaining my rating system, numbers are fairly often chosen at random (well, maybe my gut feeling) so I might actually like a movie I rated 75 more than an 85, I just really can't be bothered to go back and constantly re-do my ratings.

85 75% The Red Star (2007) - Aug 11, 2022
60 18% Dying Light 2 Stay Human (2022) - Aug 09, 2022
"I just don't have patience for the basic open world formula anymore. Some open world games astound me, this is not one of them. I always preferred Dead Island to Dying Light because the parkour gets in the way sometimes, and I think that's true here too. Yeah, there's a bunch to do and you can "explore" (but what are you really exploring?) but whatever. There's some fun to be had, hence the 60, but I just won't sink hours and hours into this kind of thing anymore."
40 7% Guidance Adventure (2022) - Aug 04, 2022
"I get it, though the developer has a lot of typos (in both the game and on their Twitter). I just don't think it's that great. It starts off cool, and then strips basically all control from you and you sit and wait. I don't absolutely despise it because it's experimental, but it's not really fun or better at what it's trying to accomplish than any other random Itch.io game you could find. It's also very short so it doesn't give you enough time to hate it, but is it worth your time? Nah."
80 59% Haiku, the Robot (2022) - Aug 04, 2022
"It's a solid example of a genre that's a little saturated in the indie genre, which means that while it doesn't set itself apart from the pack, it's still pretty great. The soundtrack/visuals are the most inspired bit. The action is kind of basic but not bad. Story is decent. Exploration hits though the backtracking is a little boring, more so than in many other Metroidvanias. Get compared to Hollow Knight... it's shorter."
75 45% Kaiju Princess (2022) - Jul 31, 2022
"I don't play these hentai games but the premise of this one was interesting. And it remains interesting... silly but kinda neat. But I liked this game because the simulation elements are deep enough while also not being stressful. And yeah, there's plenty of the dirty stuff for those who want it. I'm not above it."
70 33% Endling: Extinction is Forever (2022) - Jul 30, 2022
"Don't care for the mechanic where you need to go back to your lair because sometimes it's annoying. When the little, subtle things intersect with the storytelling, it's an emotional narrative, with a great soundtrack and nice visuals. It's very sad and doesn't shy away from its messaging. So as a story it's an 80, but as a whole game it's a 70 because the gameplay sometimes lets it down."
65 24% As Dusk Falls (2022) - Jul 30, 2022
"I actually don't like the art style. I had an incredibly hard time getting into what was going on because of that. Some of the dialogue is absolutely hokey, and some of the choices you get to make are silly. Voice work is decent most of the time but the early bits are rough. When As Dusk Falls connects it's quite tense, but these types of games aren't doing it for me at this point in my life."
90 86% Stray (2022) - Jul 25, 2022
"The shooting part isn't amazing from a mechanics perspective, but I'm not willing to drop my score for it because I loved the rest. There's some thrilling chase scenes, some horror, a lot of cat cuteness, an interesting city to explore, it's not overlong, an awesome soundtrack and some hefty emotional beats. Ending is very sad. Don't get it twisted though, for the most part this is an exploration game."
80 59% Spider: Rite of the Shrouded Moon (2015) - Jul 15, 2022
"Forcing you to solve the mysteries or get a certain ranking slowed down and forced the story onto us too much, which slowed the pace down, but the puzzle mechanics where you have to trap the variety of insects is a really fun one, and the subtle storytelling in the environment is great."
70 33% Ghostwire: Tokyo (2022) - Jul 11, 2022
"Another open world game, except with a pretty cool story and atmosphere. If this was a linear experience I reckon it would be among my fave games of the year so far. The problem is, it just has bog standard open world design with repetitiveness as a feature. This does nothing for me this far into the open world craze, I need more than that. Padding the experience hinders it and gets in the way of the cooler aspects. Aside from that, gameplay is fine, progression is okay."
