To anybody that has been reading my reviews for a while, you know that I scare far too easily. Well, Fear 3 was the PERFECT game for me. Not only was I able to play with a buddy, but it creates its horror in the perfect way! Fear 3 is definitely not a perfect game, but it is a beautifully designed game. The replay value of this game is very VERY high. Even though you know exactly when the scary shit is going to happen you catch something new and creepy every time you replay the level. Even though you have a gun, when you walk into a dark room with a flickering light, and hear noises all around you are still quite nervous. I realize this is a short review but there isn’t much to say. Fear 3 is a pretty standard game, there is nothing quite special about the mechanics or story line, yet it is beautiful and immersive.
I am not one to get emotional at movies, ever, but this brought tears to my eyes multiple times. Inside Out follows an 11 year old girl Riley, as she moves across country and the problems that stem from that. More accurately, this follows the inside of Riley’s head. Inside out features the emotions of Joy, Fear, Anger, Sadness, and Disgust, all of which are BRILLIANTLY voice acted with Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, Louis Black, Phyllis Smith, and Mindy Kaling respectively. I am SO happy this movie came out now rather than when I was a child. Being an adult you watch this movie in an entirely different light than a child would. You understand the concepts of depression, the jokes about train of thought, the “fading” memories, the song that gets stuck in your head, the putting down of the foot, your personality traits, and so many more! While I am on the subject, Inside out has one of the most amazing metaphors for depression I have ever seen. I feel as if I have not said enough, but this is usually the part where I say something bad. I have nothing bad to say! This is a beautiful, sad, heart-warming, brilliant movie. It perfectly explains everything in your head, and is hilarious along the way. It is a must-see.
