The new studios pay both respect and homage to the original releases by valuing their clarity above all else.

There may well be the feeling of a missed opportunity here, but no matter. Almost worthy is still pretty good.

7 / 10 - Windbound
Aug 31, 2020

The more I played the less the goings-on of the narrative bothered me, and the more I relished the wavelike rhythm of the action: the roll and crash of sailing and breaking to alight for supplies.

Jul 29, 2020

Fight Crab shares a lot of similarities with the glorious gladiatorial battles of Ancient Rome, which were what made primary school history lessons actually fun. Though, like the sporting spectacle, it might not be everyone's cup of tea.

I would recommend the remake to anyone with a nostalgic thirst for the original, but so, too, to those that like their laughs with a dark bite.

7 / 10 - CARRION
Jul 23, 2020

Carrion abounds with the thrills of being the monster, then, but, less common and more cosy, with the kick of being in a monster movie—of slithering in celebration over the tropes of the genre. The good news is that, for a while, it works.
