 ‘Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’ is an epic and fun follow up to 'Origins.'  While it suffers from a slow start and a dependence on grinding, it  excels with fantastic characters, beautiful visuals, and brilliant,  redefined gameplay, especially in its combat. It marks another success  in the 'Assassin’s Creed' franchise.

 All in all, 'Shadow of the Tomb Raider' is a fun experience and the  perfect ending for Lara Croft’s origins. The great story is aided by  Croft’s character development and Luddington’s performance. Stale  gameplay is enhanced by a stealth component and there’s plenty of side  content to spare. It’s a fine and fun wrap up for the trilogy.

 'Kin' is a movie that is aided by its strong performances, fantastic  score, and interesting visual aesthetic. However, its shortcomings of  tone and pacing issues, as well as wasted potential that comes with its  ending, drag it down. All in all, it’s a movie that’s best saved to  watch on Netflix on a lazy Saturday.
