Digging Up the Marrow

Tuesday, 07 July 2015
Warning. Though they're included in this review for viewers who don't mind spoilers, I'd strongly advise not watching the below embedded clips before watching Digging Up the Marrow.Both as a reviewer and a lover of movies, there's nothing quite like going into one completely blind.  Before watching Digging Up the Marrow I didn't watch the trailer or see any clips of it. In fact, until around two months ago I didn't even know it existed. When I read a short and interesting synopsis on IMDB ... Read More

Batman: Arkham Knight

Monday, 06 July 2015
This was always going to be a hard game to review. After all, since its debut the debut of the Arkham series back in 2009, it has been hailed as a near masterpiece by many critics and gamers alike. Since the series kicked off it has spawned numerous spin-off games, comics and even an animated film. Needless to say, it's been quite the lucrative franchise to say the least. Now the final chapter in the game series is upon us. However, after Batman: Arkham City set the world on fire a few years ... Read More

Tusk

Sunday, 05 July 2015
I'm not one of those long time Kevin Smith fans that thinks he's shit now. Then again, neither am I one of those Kevin Smith fans that still love him. I haven't seen many of his films before, and apart from watching and enjoying both Clerks and Dogma, I'm not really sure what he's truly capable of as a writer/director. Going into Tusk I had no preconceptions of how good or bad it could be, and without ever seeing a trailer to the film, I really did go into this one blind. So, with Tusk being ... Read More

Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy

Friday, 03 July 2015
Dungeon crawlers, though not as widespread as they were when Vanilla Ice was topping the charts, have started to make a bit of a comeback as of late. From Demon Gaze to Legend of Grimrock, there are a few games out there that are seen as the last bastion for the classic genre. I've never really seen myself as a fan of dungeon crawlers personally, but after reviewing Demon Gaze last year (I gave it a respectful 3/5) I started to rethink my stance on the genre. What I always perceived as a ... Read More

Love is Strange

Friday, 03 July 2015
As a film reviewer, I’ve always told myself to give any film a chance. Writing more-or-less full time has given me the opportunity to watch more films, including many that I might not usually have had the time for. Films like Still Life, The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman and Stretch are just a few of the slightly under-the-radar films that I discovered and loved, thanks to this position. Here’s another. Directed by Ira Sachs and out now only on DVD; Love is Strange tells the ... Read More

Yoshi's Woolly World

Thursday, 02 July 2015
When I was younger I loved art shows. Whether it was Art Attack, SMart or Hartbeat, growing up I just loved drawing things, making things and pretty much just getting down and dirty with crayons, paints, play-doh, fabric or whatever. I still doodle when I can, but the closer I journey towards the big three-zero I often start to feel some of my younger self slip away. That's both a good and a bad thing as you grow up of course, but I always want to hold onto that love for hands-on creativity I ... Read More

Inherent Vice

Wednesday, 01 July 2015
Ever wanted to go back in time to the early 1970s and sample the drugs in the hippie scene of Los Angeles? Of course not, because drugs are bad! But if you did want to, watching this film might give you a pretty good idea of what it was like. Out now on DVD & Blu-Ray comes comedy/crime/thriller/mystery/drama/mindf*ck Inherent Vice, directed and adapted for the screen by Paul Thomas Anderson from Thomas Pynchon’s novel of the same name. Paul Thomas Anderson and Joaquin Phoenix reunite ... Read More

The Trials of Muhammad Ali

Tuesday, 30 June 2015
I love a good documentary - what can I say, I like to learn. But when choosing one to watch, ordinarily I’d look right past something like this. Anyone who knows me will tell you I don’t follow any sports, nor do I have any interest in them. But this one grabbed me. Why? Because despite the subject, this is not a sports film. Out now only on DVD, as a single release or in a boxset with I Am Ali and When We Were Kings, comes The Trials of Muhammad Ali.Directed by Bill Siegel, The Trials of ... Read More

CeX in London Evening Standard

Monday, 29 June 2015

Naturally they chose our CeX store on Tottenham Court Road for Nathaniel Popper of The New York Times to discuss his book 'Digital Gold: The Untold Story of Bitcoin'.He says, "It's the ability to make any kind of transaction with anybody without relying on a third party. That simple transaction mechanism for moving value from one place to the next without government interference ... Read More
