Ba ba...DOOK DOOK DOOOOOUUUUHHHHK I can count on one hand the number of horror movies made in the last 15 years (though it's probably more than that) that I actually like. After watching The Babadook, that count is still going on one hand though it is one higher. This is a movie about a widow, Amelia, and her deeply trouble son, Samuel.

I'm sharing my excitement over the season this year with the Fort, largely taking a look which horror movies I'm watching,...

If you're a hobby gamer, you can break down mass market games. Stick with me here, this isn't going in a "These Games of Ours" direction. The vast majority of it is stuff a hobby gamer isn't going to give two craps about. Maybe stuff you'd play with your kids, but anything "adult" would mean dumb party games and bad liscensed games to make a quick buck. Then there are those rare games like Heroscape or Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Star Wars Epic Duels that are totally accesible for the...
