The Danish Girl

Monday, 30 May 2016
The idea of being transgender is not a new one, but with all the sudden coverage in the news it can be hard to realise that. The Danish Girl, directed by Tom Hooper, is a topical film not only because of its relevance to today’s society, but also because it highlights a gender-based struggle in an time we wouldn’t usually think about.Set in 1926, popular artist Einar Wegener (Eddie Redmayne) is married to his less successful artistic wife, Gerda Wegener (Alicia Vikander). One day he finds ... Read More

Yo-Kai Watch

Sunday, 29 May 2016
Yo-Kai Watch is pretty good, and not just because one of the characters literally has an arse for a face. The fact that it's so often described as “like Pokémon” will discourage teenage boys who secretly wish they were more masculine, but the fact that it's developed by the same people behind games such as Professor Layton and Ni No Kuni should encourage anybody. Also, don't forget that one of the characters literally has an arse for a face.Developed by Level-5 and out now for the 3DS, ... Read More

The Big Short

Saturday, 28 May 2016
I love this time of year. All of the recent award season films start dropping onto our shelves, and we can revisit some of the years’ finest. Out now on DVD & Blu-ray comes The Big Short - one of the best films of the year and, in my eyes, the film that was robbed of the Best Picture award by the rather overrated Spotlight.When The Big Short first came onto the scene, I must admit I was sceptical. I was interested in the true story behind the film, but couldn’t get my head around one ... Read More

Homefront: The Revolution

Thursday, 26 May 2016
What a weird history the development of Homefront: The Revolution has had. It’s been taken away from the original developers, had the publisher shut down, developers had the rights to the game bought back, then the developer sold it on to a new publisher and here we are with the game that has been troubled for the best of four years. How troubled? Well it’s acknowledged by the developed in a letter written in the credits of the game . . . .yeah. Developed by Dambuster Studios and out now on ... Read More

Room

Wednesday, 25 May 2016
There is a lot of darkness in this world. The stories you can read of kidnapping and captivity should just be horror fiction, but unfortunately, a lot of them are true. In recent years, this has become a popular premise from which to craft a story. The BBC recently aired Thirteen, a dark drama following a girl escaping captivity after thirteen years. And Netflix recently managed to get a comedy out of this dark subject with the brilliant Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. But one film, shot in 2014 and ... Read More

Deadpool

Monday, 23 May 2016
Superhero films are generally pretty good (unless they’re really bad – I’m looking at you, Spiderman 3 and Fantastic Four), but with so many of them around it can be hard to be original. Deadpool throws the usual globe to the side and instead opts for a much more personal plotline, which makes it a refreshing film to see.Starring Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson, the film sees Wade discover he’s got cancer just as everything in his life is going right. He discovers an opportunity to cure it ... Read More

Battle Worlds: Kronos

Sunday, 22 May 2016
Hex-based real-time strategy games had its prime in the 90s but with all old things that had it's time in the sun, a comeback is always other cards, leathered and ready. With the fact that there are very few RTS games on this current generation of consoles, it's nice to finally see something come to it, even if it has it's glaring flaws. Out now for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and developed by KING Art Games, Battle Worlds: Kronos is a turn-based strategy game played out on a 2D hexagonal ...
