Low budget British cinema often has a stigma attached to it. People think that it’s just dark, gloomy, depressing social realism. That description sums up ’71 pretty well but don’t let that put you off, the film is so much more. ’71 showcase the best things British cinema has to offer, showing the world you don’t need lots of money to make an outstanding film. It’s brutal, tense, brilliantly directed and acted, and is one of the best British films in years.Out now on Blu-Ray and DVD ... Read More

Out now on Blu-ray and DVD, is Paddington worth your time? Or is it another Yogi Bear?Firstly, let’s go back to November 2014. Before Paddington was released, the BBFC had to classify it - as they do every film. Paddington was rated PG. No surprise there, really. However, the BBFC stated this was for ‘dangerous behaviour, mild threat, mild sex references [and] mild bad language’. SEX references?! Michael Bond, creator of Paddington, was ‘totally amazed’ by this classification. Rightly ... Read More

Xenoblade Chronicles 3D

Thursday, 16 April 2015
I can’t say I’ve played many games in the Xeno RPG series. I never played the Xenosaga trilogy as, to be pretty honest, they looked a bit crap. From lifeless corpse-like character faces to rather bland level design, the Xenosaga trilogy looked like around 60% of the Playstation 2’s typical RPG stockpile. Yes, the Playstation 2 had some great RPGs (be sure to check out those in one of my previous PS2 RPG article) but none of them were Xenosaga! Still though, I can’t completely rag on the ...

My first Christopher Nolan film was his debut feature, the utterly compelling Memento from 2000, the film that essentially played out backwards and featured a protagonist that had regular bouts of memory loss. It was an incredible piece of movie-making, and once Nolan followed it up with 2002's Insomnia, for me it cemented his skill as a film maker. Whether Nolan was delving into the Batman universe with his caped crusader trilogy, or tapping into the world of lucid dreaming with Inception, ... Read More

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection

Tuesday, 14 April 2015
Reviewing a remaster is difficult. It’s hard not to fall into the trap of reviewing the original game and saying it runs a bit better, so I’m going to be strict and try my best not to fall into that trap – no matter how tempting it may be. Developed by Gearbox Software and out now on Playstation 4 and Xbox One comes Boderlands: The Handsome Collection, though as far as collections go it's not a very good one. It’s like having a shiny Charizard and Venusaur – while you may have ... Read More

The Awakened Fate Ultimatum

Monday, 13 April 2015
The Playstation 3 has been both a hotbed and haven for RPGs. Whereas the Xbox has largely overlooked the genre (apart from superb additions such as The Last Remnant and Lost Odyssey), Sony have always done their best to cater to fans of the genre.  The same goes for the Playstation Vita and the Playstation 4, but after over a decade since its release the Playstation 3 has a massive back catalogue of titles, with a large chunk of them being RPGs. With the RPG market still in high gear ... Read More

Lego Ninjago: Shadow of Ronin

Sunday, 12 April 2015
It was 1991 and I was six. For my birthday that year my parents decided to get me some Lego, but not real LEGO like real people buy, no, this was knock-off Lego. I forget the name of the brand, but it was called something like “Blox”. Regardless though, they looked exactly like Lego's, but only bigger. They say standing on a LEGO piece in your bare feet is the worse pain you'll ever experience as a child, and yeah that's pretty accurate. But I felt something worse than that back on that ...

Tales of an Ancient Empire

Saturday, 11 April 2015
Like I said during my review of The Scorpion King 4: Quest for Power, I'm a huge fan of fantasy films. Give me anything that has people swinging swords, monsters, adventure and a great fantasy setting and I'm hooked. However, it's a genre that hard to get right if a film production has a low budget. A high budget doesn't make a film of course, but it certainly helps when much of the success a genre rides on depicting a different, exciting and bizarre world. On one hand you have The Lord of the ... Read More
