Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales ★★★☆☆

Saturday, 21 October 2017
Yo, ho, ho it’s a mediocre sequel of a pirates film for me.Blimey, who ever thought we’d get to 5 Pirates of the Caribbean films? It’s been a rocky road for the franchise, with the original still up there with the best blockbusters of the century, and its sequels suffering from the law of diminishing returns in terms of quality, if not bankability.But regardless of whether we really need a new installment, here we are with 2017’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge (or Dead ...

Metroid: Samus Returns ★★★★★

Friday, 20 October 2017
Metroid 2, for the original (house brick, of a) GameBoy, was impressive for its day. Even with the hardware's limitations, it managed to have nice big sprite work and animation. It wouldn't have been my first choice for a Remaster, but I'm glad they did. Metroid: Return of Samus is more of a reimagining than a remaster, as it doesn't stick close to the original's design, outside of the story's concept. Coming straight off of the events of the classic, original NES game. Humans send in the ... Read More

Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite ★★★☆☆

Thursday, 19 October 2017
As team-ups go, like The Ninja Turtles and Usagi Yojimbo, Marvel and Capcom just makes sense. Both have a large mixed catalogue of weird and outlandish characters, to bring to the table. Who's not had the playground conversation of “who would win out of X or X”. The Marvel vs Capcom series has always let you fight these fanboy/girl scenarios out, for yourselves. In total, Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite (MvC:I) has 30 characters, in its roster lineup, which is a fair number (until you compare it ... Read More

Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 ★★★★★

Wednesday, 18 October 2017
It’s that time of year again, when the latest FIFA and Pro Evo entries are both on the shelves, and the most die-hard fans of each fight one another like drunk toddlers. Right here and now though, I’m here to talk about Pro Evolution Soccer 2018. Yes, it’s still an odd mish-mash of real and fake team names due to a lack of full licensing but, indeed, you can still easily find and download a player-made file to fix that.Did you see all that pre-release guff about how players will now act ...

Baby Driver ★★★★★

Tuesday, 17 October 2017
Edgar Wright is known for his quirky yet humorous, well-edited films, and his newest creation, ‘Baby Driver’, is no exception. Baby (Ansel Elgort) is a young getaway driver with a hearing impairment and a quiet personality, yet his skills behind the wheels make him one of the best in his field. It’s not something he’d planned to do of course, and he can’t wait until he’s done his last job for crime boss Doc (Kevin Spacey) so he can get back to a (semi) normal life caring for his ...

Transformers: The Last Knight ★☆☆☆☆

Friday, 13 October 2017
Transformers: The Last Knight, is difficult to watch. I have watched it through twice, and I would have been more engrossed staring at a random bit of bark, that had somehow found itself stuck to the side of a shed with poo. Starring Academy award-winning Anthony Hopkins and Academy nominated Mark Wahlberg this is a film that will not define the career of anyone, except perhaps Michael Bay’s ability to jump the shark without ever having a non shark jumpy franchise in the first place.The film ...

All Eyez On Me

Thursday, 12 October 2017
All Eyez on Me is a Touching movie. From rapper to rapper to corpse, Tupac Shakur has touched many people, his occasionally touching songs have resulted in incredible album sales. His “Unwanted Touching” moments resulted in accusations for which he was imprisoned, and then severe moments of touchiness on his part, led to him being fundamentally..spoiler alert…killed to death in real life.Starring Demetrius Shipp Jr. as the titular star, All Eyez On Me is a weak and obvious attempt at ...

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie ★★★★☆

Wednesday, 11 October 2017
Tra-la-laaaa or Tra-la...nah?Dav Pilkey’s Captain Underpants books have been a staple of school libraries and the scourge of uppity parents for nearly two decades, chronicling the misadventures of two 4th graders and their hypnotized principal, who fights crime in nothing but his undies as the titular hero. With the massive popularity of the series, it’s strange that it’s taken this long for the characters to cross over into cinema with this year’s Captain Underpants: The First Epic ... Read More

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy ★★★★★

Tuesday, 10 October 2017
The original Uncharted came out at a time when Sony was struggling to sell consoles and desperately needed to keep the PS3 relevant, to show that Sony had first party games that could stand up and compete against Halo and Gears of War. The first game was clearly inspired by, and played like, a mash-up of four games that were popular at the time. Tomb Raider, Gears of War, Resident Evil 4 and Ico. A massive chunk of Indiana Jones was clearly wedged in there, too. It wasn't until Nathan "Nate" ... Read More
