Captain America: The First Avenger (5/10)

I didn't really mind the first third of the movie when The Cap'n is all weak and weirdly CGI looking, but the rest of the movie decends into standard men-in-tights superhero awfulness. Stop making superhero movies, please.

Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath on PC (7/10)

Oddword: Stranger's Wrath

This is the fourth Oddworld game. The first two were great 2-D puzzle platform games of which I was reminded of when I played the excellent Braid. In the X-Box era Oddworld moved into 3-D with Munch's Oddysee. After having purchased all four games during a Steam sale, I immediately jumped in to Munch's Oddysee. Oh my god. What a horrible game with horrible controls, animation, and everything. I gave up after about 4 hours of tedium. Fortunately, Stranger's Wrath takes a completely different turn.
