Castlevania was dead. Not undead, like one of those chipper skeletons always throwing spare bones around the series’ dank dungeons and improbable libraries. (And where the hell do those leering freaks get all those bones anyway? Their Jordan-esque airtime abilities aren’t as weird as their willingness to waste what should be finite bone power.) No, Konami’s classic gestalt of beloved 20th-century pulp horror was all the way dead. In the 2010s, the only remnants of the series that helped define what action video games could be—twice no less—were the muddy, Castlevania-in-name-only Lords Of Shadow trilogy and a pachinko machine.

But pulling a page from Dracula’s playbook, the storied … [Read more...] about The best, worst, and weirdest games from

Twenty years on, it’s best to view Magnolia as a project of enthusiasm. Paul Thomas Anderson’s 189-minute epic is sprawling, sloppy, and nakedly emotional. It’s exactly the kind of thing an artsy kid with all the feelings would write; it’s also the kind of thing that begs for the red pen. But nobody was editing Anderson in 1999, not after the twentysomething wunderkind knocked out one of the ’90s best movies in 1997’s Boogie Nights. Producer Michael De Luca tried, asking the filmmaker to trim the script down to a two-hour and 45-minute runtime. Anderson refused and made Magnolia, a film he now calls “way too fucking long.” “I wasn’t really editing myself,” he admitted during a 2015 appearance on WTF With Marc Maron. In a 2018 Reddit AMA, he doubled down, saying if he could go back he’d tell himself to “Chill the fuck out and cut 20 minutes.” He knew even at the time that he was pushing it, acknowledging … [Read more...] about The best and worst of
