It doesn’t really take the whole sleuthing thing to the level I was hoping for.
Onward registers more as a Movie! than a *~*PiXaR*~* movie.

A group of scientists and military personnel piss off King Kong. It goes as well as you think it would.
I have lots of questions about OASIS’ translation of IRL abilities. Am I supposed to believe everyone knows kung fu in 2045?

In honor of Tomb Raider’s release later this week, we’ve caught up with 2001’s Lara Croft Tomb Raider!

LET US REVEL IN THE GLORY.
