Young Offenders

Tuesday, 25 April 2017
Inspired by the events of 2007 where a rather large stash of cocaine ended up washed up along the shores of Cork, ‘The Young Offenders’ (directed by Peter Foott) follows two best friends from inside the city as they try and salvage said cocaine to earn a load of money and move onto a better path in life. Conor (Alex Murphy), not known in the area for his intelligence, is initially reluctant to go for it as his Mum (Hilary Rose) has a dentist appointment on that day so he needs to cover for ...

These consoles saw a massive rise of popularity over the decades and were responsible for the introduction of the directional pad, which every modern controller uses.Approximately 59 ... Read More

Arrival

Tuesday, 18 April 2017
There’s been some absolutely brilliant sci-fi movies out of late. From ‘The Martian’ (Ridley Scott) to ‘Interstellar’ (Chris Nolan), they’ve all started to move away from the classic invasion-style plots, and are instead going a lot deeper both narratively and philosophically. ‘Arrival’, directed by Denis Villeneuve, is another one just like that – a clever mix of science, philosophy, and wonderful visuals that combine together to create something magnificent.Dr. Louise Banks ...

One Under The Sun

Monday, 17 April 2017
A shuttle burns up on re-entry to Earth’s atmosphere following the beginning of the colonisation of Mars. After being found alive in the wreckage, astronaut Kathryn Voss is being kept in ‘quarantine’ by a top-secret government agency. I use that word loosely because in One Under the Sun a government quarantine facility consists of a stone-brick room, one school chair, and an agent wearing a boiler suit, trainers, and a mask that hangs open in front of his chin.When first confronted with ...

The Lady Vanishes

Friday, 14 April 2017
‘The Lady Vanishes’, directed by Diarmuid Lawrence for the BBC, is the third adaptation of Ethel Lina White’s 1936 novel ‘The Wheel Spins’. You may already be familiar with Hitchcock’s classic film adaptation, but this newer version is based much more on the original novel than Hitchcock’s mystery rom-com.Iris Carr, played by Tuppence Middleton, is a deeply unlikeable and somewhat naïve socialite who has little grasp of the real world (during the film she states that she believes ...

Moorside

Thursday, 13 April 2017
The two-part ITV drama “Moorside” follows the notorious kidnapping of nine-year-old Shannon Matthews, who disappeared from her home estate in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire in 2008. The facts of the case are familiar to many. After three weeks, the case (originally reported by Karen Matthews) escalated to a murder investigation.

Doctor Strange

Wednesday, 12 April 2017
“The Avengers,” “Captain America,” “The Hulk,” “Iron Man,” “Thor.” Try to name a superhero movie that doesn’t follow the same basic three-act structure—setup, confrontation and resolution. The first third shares the background on the main protagonist, establishes relationships and contains an inciting incident to push their lives off path. The middle section is full of action as the protagonist desperately attempts to fix the problem raised in the previous act, but fails ... Read More

Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro

Tuesday, 11 April 2017
Samsung is churning out devices like burgers in their factories and people wait in queues to gobble them up. They are not famous for making budget flagships, so with the C9 Pro they try to teach the startup brands like Xiaomi, Huawei and Oppo a thing or two about making high spec devices at low prices. I’m of the believe that Samsung makes the world’s best flagship devices including the Note series, anything else is just not worth the time and money. You can hate me now :)The Galaxy C9 Pro ...

Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey

Monday, 10 April 2017
If you’ve been longing for an alchemist simulator, then Atelier Firis has your back. Well, sort of. It’s less about turning base metals into gold, and more about making your own RPG bits and bobs (healing items, weapons, quest items, etc...) rather than finding or buying them. If you’ve been longing for an epic RPG with rich and memorable characters, and a fascinating story where the script drips quality from every syllable... well, keep moving. Nothing to see here.The Atelier games have ... Read More

Fantastic Beasts

Sunday, 09 April 2017
‘Harry Potter’ is just one of those franchises that will never leave us, and for that I am eternally glad. I grew up with the books, and going to see the films with my grandparents at the cinema was my highlight each year. Since then I’ve read the series all over again, and watched all of the films at least three times. They don’t really get old, yet the more recent additions to the franchise are still very much welcome.‘Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them’ is a film based on a ... Read More
