    Oh, the Humanity!: Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego?

    Welcome to "Oh, the Humanity!", the column that reviews videogame-based movies and books. This time, I'm reviewing a 2001 VHS tape I found at my local library entitled Where on Earth is Carmen Sandieg

  • Oh, the Humanity!: Gamer Girl

    Welcome to "Oh, the Humanity!", the column that reviews videogame-based movies and books. Today's book is Gamer Girl by Mari Macusi. Gamer Girl? Sounds like someone's trying to capitalize on the wild

  • Oh, the Humanity!: The Legend of Zelda and Philosophy

    Hello everyone, and welcome to “Oh, the Humanity!” As the byline says, this is a column about videogame-based movies and, um, books? Books. OK, well, I don't want the byline to be a liar, so I went to my local library and picked up the first videogame book I could find:

  • Oh, the Humanity!: The Wizard

    I went to the movie store yesterday to see what kind of movies they're making for kids nowadays. The movie that was being promoted was WALL-E, a cinematic masterpiece that preaches against the evils

  • Oh, the Humanity!: Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within

    Every so often there's a significant advance in film special effects, leading to the inevitable shit-storm movies with no substance, whose only purpose are to showcase said special effects. Examples of this phenomenon include Twister, all three Star Wars prequels and of course, Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within.

  • Oh, the Humanity!: Bonus Halloween Double-Feature!

    Those of us who have played the Resident Evil series know that the games are primarily about two things: zombies and running out of ammunition. The style of strategy and skill combined with excessive zombie violence makes Resident Evil in scientific terminology, Rad to the Max.

  • Oh, the Humanity!: Mortal Kombat: Annihilation

    This movie drove me to stab the guy at Hollywood Video who actually allowed me to rent it. After showing the movie to the cops, I actually got a reward.

  • Oh, the Humanity!: Mortal Kombat

    Mortal Kombat: the movie did more than launch an irritatingly bad theme song that spent the latter half of the nineties being heard in Karate classes throughout the country. It also brought the first movie based on a video game that a majority of gamers thought was halfway decent. The thing is, most gamers have shitty taste in movies. How else would you explain the success of Japanese Anime?

  • [NSFW] Oh, the Humanity!: Tomb Raider: Cradle of Life

    I had some difficulty with my review of the first Tomb Raider, mostly because the movie was boring and just plain lackluster. The second Tomb Raider flick is moreso. Frankly, I had trouble paying attention, so I may have gotten some of the plot of this movie wrong.

  • [NSFW] Oh, the Humanity!: Tomb Raider

    A few years ago, video game movies become popular again. Well actually, they didn't become popular so much as they become the next fad for Hollywood to blow millions of bucks trying to cash in on with really shitty movies. Tomb Raider is one of those movies. To play Lara Croft, Paramount got Angelina Jolie, who was fresh from having what I assume was about a gallon of Calogen injected into her lips.
