Tecmo Super Bowl predicts what every decent human being hopes for in Super Bowl 53

No one wants to see the goddamn son-of-a-bitch bastard New England Patriots in another Super Bowl again, but if we have to, we can only hope it goes exactly like this CPU-vs.-CPU simulation dialed up by TecmoBowl.org. While this is a mod of 1991’s immortal Tecmo Super Bowl for the NES, that game does not have a victory formation to kill the clock, and the clock runs way faster than the time it shows. With that out of the way, cringe with dread before cackling with delight at the thrilling resolu

How JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure fan art is trying to correct the anime’s parental problems

The main characters are descendants of the Joestar family, the drama rippling from the legendary hate-love between two adoptive brothers in 1880s England. This lack of expression has prompted artists to pick up the slack and develop a significant strain of fan art to fill those missing parts of the story, sometimes for their own sakes. finished up an ol wip ... dad.png pic.twitter.com/qjGXpZAW8V — melts (@meltsmelts) April 13, 2018JJBA fan art is much more than an appreciative reflection of the

The Kid Who Would Be King is like watching someone else play a JRPG

More likely, however, you’re familiar with his directorial debut, 2011’s Attack the Block.

As in Attack the Block, Cornish’s protagonists are young children and teenagers. Alex (played by Louis Ashbourne Serkis, son of mo-cap king Andy) is targeted by bullies at school, as is his best friend Bedders (Dean Chaumoo). Unfortunately, these moments are

Netflix’s Soni is an undercover cop drama with something new to say

Soni on the other hand, directed by first-timer Ivan Ayr and distributed by Netflix, is a swing in the other direction.

Kalpana however, comes from an extended Sikh family, but even her lively, colourful home can’t help but be intrusive. Despite being at loggerheads, Soni and Kalpana have a mutually supportive relationship. There’s no easy solution to what Soni and Kalpana are up against, and n
