    Game Review: Evil Within 2 A Well Oiled Nightmare Machine
    Spoilers for Evil Within (2014) follow: Tango Gameworks' Evil Within released in 2014 to mixed reception. Uneven framerate, a strangely disjointed story, and unyielding difficulty overshadowed a gritty, nightmarish game that is, I think, worthy of cult status. Unfortunately, deep discounts within months of its release and bad word-of-mouth has kept Evil Within from widespread...

    Writer-director Sean Baker has made three films in a row (all totaled, he's made six) that have taken an almost hypnotic approach to reality-based fiction. In 2012's Starlet, Baker and constant co-writer Chris Bergoch mix first-time actors with more seasoned performers in a story of an adult film actress's friendship with an elderly woman.

    Maybe we're getting old, but concerts can wear us out these days. At the least, we usually need a bit of a push to get the evening going, with either a nourishing nosh or a stiff drink. Thankfully, our fine city is flush with dining and drinking options, many of them mercifully situated just around the corner from your favorite music venue.

    Sound check: Old 97's check in at Durty Nellie's Saturday
    The Old 97's, one of the vanguards of the mid-'90s alt-country movement, has been consistently digging deep into the psyches of their songs' varied narrators since their debut album in 1994. But thanks to a perceptive colleague with a good ear for what I might like, "Fight Songs" from 1999 is my go-to album when I need my Old 97's fix.
