Complete Achievement List for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six -Siege (Xbox – 2015)

Forsaking the formula of past Rainbow Six games, Seige will be an entirely multiplayer experience.  Normally, multiplayer is not my favorite way to game, but this looked so good that I’m going to give it a try.  TCRSS is already out for Xbox One and PC and your cheevos below are provided courtesy of the pristinely fantastic xboxachievements.org.  Now go kill some terrorists!

Movie Review: The End of the Tour (2015) *Brilliant Writing for a Brilliant Writer’s Tribute*

David Foster Wallace, Jason Segal, The End of the Tour

In 1996, David Foster Wallace burst onto the literary scene with his magnum opus: Infinite Jest.  The End of the Tour is not a biopic.  It is, as the director calls it, an anti-biopic.  It tells the story of five days that Rolling Stone writer David Lipsky (Jesse Eisenberg) spent with Wallace (Jason Segal) at the end of the book tour for Infinite Jest, interviewing him for the first article on a writer that Rolling Stone had ever published.  The film opens in 2008 with Lipsky getting the news of Wallace’s suicide.  He then breaks out the tapes from his interviews with Wallace and we, through them, spend those five days getting to know two writers getting to know each other.  It’s absolutely brilliant, and should immediately jump to the top of your rental queue, especially for literary nerds and writers (of which I’m kind of both).

Trailer Time: Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice Trailer #3 (2016) *I Just Have a Bad History With Freaks Dressed Like Clowns*

I guess Jimmy Kimmel Live has become the new battleground for super hero trailer wars.  A week after Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. delivered the first trailer for Captain America: Civil War, Ben Affleck dropped by with the third full trailer for Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

I hated the first trailer, I was very much encouraged by the second trailer and – while I have some concerns – the third trailer absolutely is the best.  It gives away too much plot is my only concern and confirms Doomsday and who Doomsday is.  But this whole fight looks like an orchestration of Lex Luthor playing on a natural dislike that each man has for each other.  It feels very true to their characters, and while I still have some concerns about the packed nature of the film, I’ll be there March 25th when it opens.Batman, Superman, Ben Affleck, Henry Cavil, Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice
