There has been much debated over the recent reboot of the Ghostbusters franchise, although honestly while recent reboots have generally left me with a feeling of meh (and the habit of trailers spoiling things lately, also kinda ruins it, thanks for showing Chris Hemsworth’s Keven as possessed), I truly am looking forward to Melissa McCarthy’s, Kristen Wiig’s, Kate McKinnon’s and Leslie Jones’ performances. For no matter how the film may end up, I know that these comedians will be funny and entertaining.
However, one thing which I believe can be agreed upon is the simple fact that the new cover of Ray Parker, Jr.’s classic (if heavily nostalgia biased) Ghostbusters theme by Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliott is just really dull and bad. It is not entertaining and just feels lifeless.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is the effective spiritual successor to the Castlevania series, and to some is the long awaited fan desire for new game from Koji Igarashi free from Konami (and their recent actions) following his departure.
With $5.5 million gained from Kickstarter backers, far beyond its initial $500,000 goal, it was the highest-funded video game crowd funded campaign until it was surpassed by Yu Suzuki’s Shenmue III a month later.
The premise of the game focus on a orphan named Miriam, whose skin is slowly turning into crystal due to an alchemist’s curse, resultantly she seeks to stop this curse by finding the summoner Gebel (who also suffers from this curse and is still alive) in his demon-filled castle.
On the surface the game offers a lot of promise, visually the concept art and characters/enemies are stunning and unique. While the idea of Igarashi having free rein in creating a new Metroidvania game is something to hold a fair bit of hope.

In what was a fairly meh fourth instalment to the Terminator franchise with Terminator Salvation, not a lot hope would be placed on any later additions. However, with the fact that the original Terminator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger, would return to his famous role, one cannot be help but be happy.
Of course, the reappearance of a classic character does not fully make a movie as we will see in the recent fifth instalment – Terminator Genisys.
