Get On Up

Sunday, 24 May 2015
I love biopics. You may have seen my ‘Top 5 Biopics’ article I did – that was a struggle for me, as it’s one of my favourite genres. As a music fan at heart, I’m particularly fond of ones about musicians. They can be brilliant – Control, about Ian Curtis, and Walk the Line, about Johnny Cash, are absolutely brilliant films. But for every good one, you get a shit one. Jimi: All Is By My Side, the Hendrix biopic, was dreadful. As was The Doors, about, well…do I really need to say? ... Read More

Tropico 5

Saturday, 23 May 2015
I've never played a Tropico game and this is the fifth one. In fact, I've never really heard of the franchise until back in 2011 to be perfectly honest. When Tropico 4 was released I heard about the various issues with its DLC some gamers were having. Basically, the DLC for Tropico 4 was mostly down through micro-transactions, which together became more expensive than the actual game itself. From buying a building here, quick drying cement there, to purchasing an island, it sounded like a ... Read More

Exodus: Gods and Kings

Friday, 22 May 2015
There seems to be an influx of Biblical films coming out of Hollywood recently. I thought Hollywood picked that carcass clean, but here we are. Don't get me wrong, there are some stellar Biblical films out there, namely the likes of Prince of Egypt, The Passion of the Christ and The Ten Commandments. They were films despite heavily rooted in belief, but didn't demand that you believed in the authenticity of their stories in order to enjoy them. They were just great films in their own right. ...

Ride

Thursday, 21 May 2015
As a reviewer I'm always open to every game that needs to be reviewed. I mean, I have to be because that's my job. Coming to reviews with a preconceived notion of a game or genre is generally a bad idea, as at the end of the day I want to give you guys and gals an unbiased perspective of a game. I'm not here to screw you around, and whether and game is great or complete shit, I'll let you know about it. Sure there are certain genres I don't really enjoy, but I always do my best to play those ... Read More

Birdman

Wednesday, 20 May 2015
Directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu and out now on Blu-Ray and DVD comes Birdman, a strange film in many ways. The way its shot, the way it seems to jump from psychological thriller to drama to comedy all within a minute, and in general – it’s strange. But that’s not to say strange is a bad thing.Alejandro González Iñárritu has a fairly small back catalogue, so to score four Oscars, including Best Pictureand Best Director would have been surprising, had it not been for Birdman: ...

Omega Quintet

Tuesday, 19 May 2015
You can't go a week without Compile Heart releasing a JRPG for a Sony console. Some of them are good, some are not so good, but I genuinely like being overwhelmed with choice. Sure, as it was with the Playstation 2 era, we may look back at a lot of Playstation 4 titles as shovelware someday, but for now Sony seem to be dishing out some pretty decent content. This latest game up for review looks, sounds and plays like 99% of the other JRPGs on the market, and while not exactly being very ... Read More

Cobain: Montage of Heck

Monday, 18 May 2015
I feel like I need to preface this review by saying that I'm not a huge Nirvana fan. That doesn't mean I don't like them though. “Smells like teen spirit” is a pretty awesome song, as is “Come as you are” and “Heart shaped box”. But beyond enjoying a few of their songs, I just don't put them up on the pedestal that a lot of people tend to do. I knew a bit about Kurt Cobain, but most of that surrounded his death. This latest documentary on Nirvana's leading man pulls the focus back ... Read More

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb

Sunday, 17 May 2015
Like the titles, this series of films just doesn’t know when to stop. As happens so frequently with franchises, what started as a great concept quickly becomes over used and boring. Transformers did it, Jaws did it, hell, even Indiana Jones managed to do it. Not to say that Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian was terrible, it just wasn’t as good as the first. And now, the third isn’t as good as the second. Directed by Shawn Levy and out now on Blu-Ray and DVD comes Night ... Read More
