This Celtic cover of “Zelda’s Lullaby” and “Hilda’s Theme” offers two great songs in one video. In this…

What is the greatest dungeon in the Zelda series? A simple question on the surface, but one with so many layers that it makes finding an answer almost impossible. How does one define ‘great’? Is it the dungeon layout? Perhaps the ways the dungeon item is implemented into the puzzles? Or is it the bombastic boss fight at the end? Surely the music and overall aesthetic play a part? And to be honest – what does being a dungeon in…

Having watched it five times during its theatrical run — more than any other movie I’ve seen — I was so entranced by this flick’s imaginative spirit. The endearingly adventurous heroine, the painstakingly immaculate stop-motion visuals, the haunting musical score — it all comes together to create what might be…
