A Scanner Darkly, based on the book by Phillip K. Dick, follows the story of Bob Arctor (Keanu Reeves) in one of the hardest situations through his life. The setting is a futuristic, yet not too futuristic, Earth. The world is plagued with a new drug on the street: Substance D. More addictive than any drug on the market and quite more dangerous, A Scanner Darkly follows the downfall of Arctor as he slips deeper and deeper into addiction.

This handsome, beautiful man has brought us insanity in the form of Tony Stark, Sherlock Holmes, Sergeant Lincoln Osirus, and many more.

Iron Man 3 releases in the United States in just a few days, so we here at ThoseReviewGuys decided to get together and host another week (we’ll try at least) long celebration of the man behind the Iron mask, Robert Downey Jr. We love this man dearly, and we hope you do too. So what I’m saying, if I’m saying anything at all, is welcome back to the Stark Expo!

Although Playstation All-Stars: Battle Royale is said to be inspired by, and more commonly compared to, Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. series, the two games are very different. These are two clearly different, but equally respectable fighting games. The comparisons end with the notion that both bring together their respective first and third party franchises. Super Smash Bros. is one of the ultimate fighting games in video game history. Almost everyone knows Nintendo and its characters, so throwing them all together in a button mashing insanity feud makes perfect sense. It’s fun for anyone of any age and is extremely competitive, although Mario Kart 64 may be more competitive among college students. PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale (All-Stars), developed by SuperBot Entertainment, is a competitive game, a legitimate and deep fighter, and one of the most entertaining things I’ve ever experienced. All-Stars is better than Super Smash Bros.
