Dead Rising 3 review: Combo party

There aren't too many problems that can't be solved with a blow torch and a few well-scrounged supplies. This is what I've learned from Dead Rising 3, which evolves the patchwork weapon-crafting mechanic introduced in Dead Rising 2 in some very natural and helpful ways.

'Free Birds,' movie review

Most minor animated movies are so rote that it’s worth acknowledging a strange bird like this cheerfully gonzo kid flick. It’s no masterpiece, but if you’re hoping for a family film that will keep everyone reasonably entertained, this will fly. Owen Wilson deserves much of the credit, thanks to his nimble delivery as Reggie, the only intelligent turkey on his farm. While the rest of his flock is as dumb as stuffing, a panicked Reggie...
