HBO's Folklore Review: 6 Terrifying Asian Horror Tales to Haunt You

HBO's Folklore Review: 6 Terrifying Asian Horror Tales to Haunt You

Over the past two decades Asia has gained a reputation as home to one of the most exciting and inventive genre film communities. From terrifying Korean horror hits like Tale of Two Sisters and Train to Busan, to Japanese classics like Ringu and Ju-On: The Grudge, all the way through Indonesian game changers like V/H/S/2’s Safe Haven and The Night Comes For Us, the rest of the world is still catching up with the continent’s unique and terrifying genre output. HBO’s new anthology horror series Folklore (now streaming on HBO NOW, HBO GO, and HBO On Demand) hopes to highlight other brilliant Asian horror directors with six new films from helmers inspired by local folk tales from their respective countries, and generally it succeeds.

Why You Need to Watch Netflix's Russian Doll

Why You Need to Watch Netflix's Russian Doll

Editor’s note: This is a (mostly) spoiler-free review of Russian Doll, but we want to preface by saying that the less you know going into Natasha Lyonne’s mind-bending series, the more satisfying it will be – but if you need a little more context before you pull the trigger, read on for the basics, or check out our video review above. By now, you’ve probably heard that Netflix’s Russian Doll — which dropped at the beginning of February and quickly took the Internet by storm — is the new Groundhog Day. But Natasha Lyonne’s inventive comedy has far more in common with the likes of Edge of Tomorrow or your favorite roguelike game, where different actions open up different story paths, but every time our main character dies (and it happens frequently), she’s transported back to the beginning of the story cycle. Continue reading…

Mortal Kombat 11: Ronda Rousey Wrestles as Sonya Blade at WWE Elimination Chamber

Mortal Kombat 11: Ronda Rousey Wrestles as Sonya Blade at WWE Elimination Chamber

Ronda Rousey seems fairly excited about taking on the role of Sonya Blade in Mortal Kombat 11, and she’s taken that fandom a step further by dressing as the character when taking part in yesterday’s WWE Elimination Chamber pay-per-view. The UFC Champion, Olympic medallist and WWE superstar emerged for her Raw Women’s Championship match dressed as the character. It’s proven a popular move, with many viewers (including our own reviewer) saying it’s a better look than her traditional “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey attire. Continue reading…

Yoshi’s Crafted World Preview: Charming, if a Bit Too Easy

Yoshi’s Crafted World Preview: Charming, if a Bit Too Easy

I instantly fell in love with Yoshi’s Crafted World when it was announced at E3 2017. A Yoshi-starring Nintendo platformer with a gorgeous art style and an intriguing level-flipping dynamic? Sign me up! Nintendo finally gave me the chance to play it, though only for about 20 torturously short minutes, and so far, I can confidently say that Yoshi’s new adventure will be nothing if not endlessly charming. The hook of Yoshi’s Crafted World is that it’s a left-to-right 2D platformer that mixes in some 3D gameplay elements. Certain paths might take you to the background and others to the foreground. Sometimes you’ll need to flip cardboard doors around so that you can literally go behind the scenes. Meanwhile, coins, collectibles, or enemies are occasionally hiding behind the papercraft objects in the scene, so you’ll need to aim to throw an egg towards the camera or away from it instead of just to the sides. And most of all, of course, is that you’ll get to play levels in reverse, from the other side of the scene. I only got to experience one example of this, but I can see it (hopefully) being super compelling the deeper into the world you get. Continue reading…
