Bury Me, My Love Review - Trials And Tribulations

Take a group of people and you'll find numerous differences between each and every one of them. The one undeniable truth is that they're all human, and yet this fact can be all-too-easily forgotten when that same group of people are refugees. Certain politicians, media outlets, and xenophobic hate groups like to wash that individuality away, painting refugees and migrants in monolithic terms as something to fear. It's a harmful and blatant lie, but this emphasis on fear has proven successful throughout history in shaping people's opinions. Bury Me, My Love, a text-based adventure game from French developer The Pixel Hunt, presents a much more honest and truthful look at the human beings involved in the migrant crisis, taking inspiration from actual refugee stories to tell an eye-opening tale that's equal parts heartbreaking, terrifying, and inspiring.

Deadpool Director Making New Mature Animated Series For Netflix

Over the past year Netflix has been increasing its focus on animated content, and there are some high-profile projects set to hit the service. Directors Tim Miller (Deadpool, the upcoming Terminator sequel) and David Fincher (The Social Network, Seven) are the latest names to work a new animated series for the company.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Miller and FIncher will executively produce a series titled Love, Death & Robots for Netflix. It's an 18-part anthology show aimed at an mature audience that will span several genres, such as sci-fi, fantasy, horror, and comedy. The animation styles will vary too, from traditional 2D to more modern CG styles, and each episode will run from 5 to 15 minutes. While it does not yet have a premiere date, Netflix has released some images from the show. Check them out below:

In a statement, Miller said: "Love, Death & Robots is my dream project. It combines my love of animation and amazing stories. Midnight movies, comics, books, and magazines of fantastic fiction have inspired me for decades, but they were relegated to the fringe culture of geeks and nerds of which I was a part. I'm so f***ing excited that the creative landscape has finally changed enough for adult-themed animation to become part of a larger cultural conversation."

about X hours ago from

Fortnite is one of the most popular games on this dear planet Earth right now, and now a new report provides new insight into how much money the game made in 2018.

According to Sensor Tower, the free-to-play game banked $455 million in revenue in 2018 on iOS alone following its launch in March this year. The total figure is surely significantly higher given the game is also on Android. The Android edition bypassed the Google Play Store, and is available exclusively through Epic, so revenue figures are unavailable.

Fortnite made $69 million in December alone on iOS, according to Sensor Tower, and this works out to the game's biggest month ever for revenue. On average in 2018, Fortnite on iOS brought in $1.6 million every day.

The new Captain Marvel movie starring Brie Larson hits theatres in March, and now a new "special look" trailer for the superhero film has landed. This new trailer, which premiered during the College Football National Championship on Monday night, contains footage from previous trailers as well as a number of brand-new scenes.

The trailer deals further with further explaining who the Skrulls are, as Larson's Carol Danvers explains to Nick Fury that they are invading Earth. She attempts to prove that she isn't a Skrull by firing off a photon blast, which she says Skrulls are not capable of. (You'll have to take her word for that.)

Captain Marvel also stars Jude Law, Gemma Chan, Samuel L. Jackson, Lee Pace, Ben Mendelsohn, Annette Bening, and Djimon Hounsou. You can see a full breakdown of who's in the movie here.
