In Time Again for a Holiday
As I said before, I had mixed feelings about the sequels. Despite its faults, A Howl-iday Adventure was actually pretty decent, and contained a good dynamic between Runt and the anti-villain Princess. However, although I did like elements of The Great Wolf Games, such as the character development of Claudette, it was pretty weak in hindsight. So, I honestly had no idea what to expect of this. On the one hand, the premise of a haunting in the series snags the attention of my horror fan side. On the other hand, I thought they’d turn it into a miserable attempt at a Halloween special. And then, of course, there’s the franchise’s horrid tendency to completely waste plot opportunities. With these aspects in mind, I approached this with a cautious but hopeful demeanor.
Of course, it also didn’t help that I kept getting the incorrect release dates for the film. Said dates were all over October, before they suddenly start

Behold, a Canine Superhero
Bolt was one of those films that kinda bypassed me. I had forgotten it existed, although, strangely enough, I had watched it on YouTube during my freshman year of college out of curiosity and probably because I thought Bolt had a cute design, or something. (This was before I became adamantly opposed to recording theatrical showings, of course.) However, I don’t remember anything about it, other than that I liked the cat for some reason, and that the video quality was about as good as you’d expect from a phone model of that time being sneaked into the theaters. I suppose it’s a testament to bad memory or disinterest that nothing stuck out to me about this film. Or maybe because it was a work with John Travolta, an actor I’m not too big on, as the voice of Bolt. It’s hard to say. In any case, I couldn’t remember much about that particular viewing experience.
However, during a random YouTube search (many of my ac

Ready for Round One?
Sonic.exe...what can I say about it that hasn't already been said by other critics, Internet commentators, and creepypasta enthusiasts? It's an extremely problematic attempt at some kind of Lovecraftian horror, racking up numerous horror genre clichés and crafting an overall unimaginative narrative. The protagonist is unnervingly blasé about the fate of his alleged friend, and pretty much serves as a non-distinguishable everyman who's really too damn stupid to live. It sounds pretty bad just from this description, but what's the real stinker of this mess? We'll get to that.
I'll admit, when I first came across Sonic.exe last year, I was a bit disturbed by it. This was primarily because of two things: seeing my absolute favorite character, Tails, being forced to get violently murdered (not to say that I was happy about seeing Knuckles die, either), and because I’ve always been a bit disturbed by monsters with red eyes staring dir
