Review: Kingshold by Dave Woolliscroft

Kingshold is a solid debut in the fantasy genre that is often flawed but sprinkled with the occasional gold dust.

This was a requested review from Mr. Woolliscroft.

For a debut entry into the fantasy genre Kingshold shows a lot of promise. The story follows the events within the city of Kingshold following the murder of the King and Queen, and the transition into a pseudo-democracy.

Review: Game Night

Director: John Francis Daley, Jonathan Goldstein
Writers: Mark Perez
Starring: Rachel McAdams and Jason Bateman

Well it was certainly funnier than Father Figures

Credit where credit’s due Game Night tried to go for something a little different.
