La La Land: The Best film of 2016

When I initially left the theatre, I struggled to describe in words the mesmerising nature of director Damien Chazelle’s third feature-length film “La La Land”. Whereas I have never been an avid follower or fan of the musical genre, I’ve also never been opposed to it; whilst I find joy in classics such as “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and “The Lion King”, I have found that more contemporary attempts Read more [...]

Review: Guardians of The Galaxy

Marvel Studios has officially done the impossible. They've turned a little known, little loved comic book title like Guardians of The Galaxy into cinematic gold. And cinematic gold translates to big bucks for Marvel! By now, Marvel Studios has managed to keep up a pretty steady pace, barely faltering at all along the way. Not every entry in their now very much established cinematic universe has been a complete masterpiece, but with each entry they prove time and time again they are the masters Read more [...]

The South Park Game We Deserved: Stick of Truth Review

May have slight spoilers - So any fan of South Park knows the much loved TV Series has suffered when it comes to Video Games. In fact the only game I can think of that I even remotely enjoyed was its Tower Defence XBLA game. Stick of Truth had a lot to live up to, and without beating around the bush too much I can honestly say that Stick of Truth is undoubtedly the game we have been waiting for since South Park first hit our screens.

DKC FTW Thumb

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. Marry me.

So, let’s get this out of the way first: I live in Japan, so I have had DK a little over a week earlier than most people I know…so…I think we can all safely assume that I can be Charlie, and you can all be my Angels…except Stubby. Stubby can be Bosley. I have been a DK fan as long as I can remember being a gamer. When I was a wee little lad and all the kids were running off with a hairy Italian man I was like 'No way, not for me, I want me some MONKEY ACTION BABY!' My original favourite Read more [...]

Victory of the Cumber-Dragon! The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Review

(May be slight spoilers) I didn’t want to open my second review in the same fashion as my first but it has to be said again: The Desolation of Smaug had a lot to live up to. The Hobbit was one of the first full novels I ever read and still love to this day. The Lords of the Rings films are amongst my favourite of all time and the first Hobbit gave me very high hopes for what to expect in this sequel. However I have had a natural worry ever since the movies were first split into 3. Read more [...]

GOTTA CATCH ‘EM ALL – Pokémon X & Y Review

Another Year, Another Pokémon game. We all know the story. New trainer, new rival, new monsters to catch and train, new gyms to battle, new badges to earn and a new region to explore and conquer. It's a formula that sells and that is far from broken. But while this Pokémon game follows the same formula, it differs in a few key aspects that not only make this experience better but set a new benchmark for all future games to follow. STORY 8/10 As with most Pokémon games, there isn't Read more [...]

Wild Blue Yonder Issue #3 Review

If you’re looking for a fresh, and captivating new series, I must reiterate that this series is definitely one to pick up. With just a day until the release Volume 3 of Mike Raicht’s steam punk, sci-fi epic Wild Blue Yonder, I thought I should give you my spoiler free, quickie review. I’m loving it, you should be loving it too. The first thing you remember when you delve back into Raicht’s dystopian world is just how brilliant Zach Howard’s artwork really is; it really adds to Read more [...]

Review: Curse of Chucky

Chucky’s back and it’s play time! But before I get into this review  let me make one thing about this movie perfectly clear, I don’t want to get all wanky and over intellectualize a movie that, I’ll be honest, is the intellectual equivalent of waving your penis at oncoming traffic from a freeway overpass whilst wearing  a dunces hat. If you’re looking for cranial, psychological horror, you won’t find it here. But what Curse of Chucky does deliver on is a cheesey, cliché ridden, Read more [...]
