Here’s my Metro News reviews for the week of Sept. 29th.
A strange, unsettling tale of sex, cannibalism, and consumer technology, Cronenberg again explores the unthinkable, this time through a pair of journalists drawn to dangerous, audacious body crimes like moths to a flame. They document their liaisons with an obsessive use of cameras, phones, tablets, and voice recorders, adding brand loyalty to a swirling mania of manipulation, betrayal, and compulsion.
Using voice instructions and appealing illustrations that combine breathing exercises with poses, this mobile course offers custom difficulties and durations along with a pocket dictionary to explain Yoga’s benefits.
Zest Recipe Manager
Zest takes the recipes you’ve clipped online and formats them into handy cooking instructions, adding a timer, a place to record notes, and tags that make them easier to organize.
This companion to the upcoming Bell Light Box exhibit offers rare photos, interviews, and a timeline of Stanley Kubrick’s career, spanning his most celebrated films and one lost masterpiece, Napoleon.
Nintendo Wii U
Sprawling armies face each other like clashing oceans in this game, where as a hero from the Zelda series you are the tide, sending out waves of attack that set monsters tumbling head over claws. It’s a cool effect repeated to button-mashing ad nauseam, with just enough strategy and upgrades to keep it going. It’s unusually fully-breasted, but then this is a mash-up between Tecmo, who are known for such things, and Nintendo, who most certainly aren’t. Fans have wanted an older, more teenage Link, but not quite like this.
