When the embargo for reviews for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain were lowered I waited anxiously for the reviews to be posted. I was nervous that the game I had been looking forward to since 2008 and openly since 2012 was as good as I had hoped it could be. The first review for the game I...
Toy Story 3 Toy Story 3 was probably the most anticipated animated feature of the summer, and even with Pixar’s stunning reputation and track record, it stands out as Pixar’s crowning achievement.

But think of all the albums you know that were released this summer. Now look at all the rest of the albums that were released this summer. Now...
A Fire With Friends Ghost House Review Released January 25, 2014 Genre: Indie Rock, Alternative Rock With a name like A Fire With Friends, one might assume that the Scranton 7-piece sounds like a mid-2000's Hot Topic band.
