Movie Review: Zootopia


At its core Zootopia is about stereotypes and how unfair they can be. A "cute" rabbit wants to be a cop, but she's a rabbit and rabbits can't be cops. Well that's what everyone keeps telling Judy Hopps. In an attempt to prove her worth she takes on a case to find a missing otter. With no resources or support from her department she enlists the help of a sly fox, Nicholas P. "Nick" Wilde. He's not a willing participant and Officer Hopps has to make sure he stays motivated to help her. An unlikely friendship is formed and although they don't realize it at first, they need each other.

There are three reasons you're going to want to go watch this movie.
  1. You love talking animals. There is something interesting about seeing animals act like humans. It gives us the right to take an animal's instincts and create characters with human traits that align with those instincts.
  2. You have children. This movie is funny and there is a slow (in a funny way) sequence involving a sloth and the DMV. As a parent I appreciated the irony and the kids found the whole scenario hilarious.
  3. It's not a kid's movie. Yes it might be targeted and marketed toward kids but this movie has plenty for the adults. I'm pretty sure my 7 year old didn't catch the Godfather references.
Is this the best Disney Animated film . . . no, but it's a good cop gets hustled, needs to prove herself, decides to solve a mystery no one has made any progress on, buddy cop movie with talking animals.I can totally see this franchise becoming a series of movies where these partners in justice solve crimes while mayhem ensues around them. You won't be disappointed.

MLB The Show 16: Sliders or Bust

I love stats and I love sports so baseball was invented for someone like me. For a while now I've picked up MLB The Show and every year is the same, I have to update the sliders to get the perfect simulation experience without sacrificing fun. If you're just looking for stats  Out of the Park Baseball   is what you need, but if you want more interaction, then maybe getting under the hood of The Show is in order. It all goes down like this. I get the game on or around day one and play it for an hour or two. I always think to myself, "wow this plays great out of the box. I may not have to change a thing". Then I sit down to play more and little things start to stand out. I don't give up or get any walks, I haven't hit a home run in 5 games or my batting average is sub .200. That's when I start my yearly search for a slider set that works for me. I need something that gives me stats that mirror the real MLB but also tricks me into the feeling that I'm

Review: Disaster Report 4: Summer Memories (PS4)

Disaster Report 4 is a game with a fascinating history, similar to Duke Nukem Forever, Half Life 3, or whatever Final Fantasy Versus XIII, but without all the hype. The Disaster Report series has been around since 2002 but has not had a title released since 2009. Disaster Report 4 was first announced for PS3 release in 2011. As one of the few Disaster Report fans, I closely followed any news for such an obscure title only covered by niche sites such as this one. The game was cancelled after several release dates were pushed back and ultimately the biggest earthquake ever recorded, at the time, hit Japan. Disaster Report hit close to home with its earthquake theme, thus it was cancelled altogether. Fast forward almost a decade later and we finally get the much-anticipated 4 entry in this weird survival horror natural disaster Japanese series. Was it worth the wait? Disaster Report 4 feels like a throwback to where it originates from, the early 2000’s. This can be a good or
