Welp, this is it. This is the big one.You've heard about the Google Home as well as the Amazon Echo again again, even from us. But you're probably sitting there thinking, "CeX, I get it, these pieces of tech are pretty cool, but I can only afford ONE! Which one should I buy?". Well, fret not. Here is our Lewis with a video in which he pits both pieces of chatty tech against each ... Read More

Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Arcade Future Tone

Thursday, 19 January 2017
Niche? Niche? There’s no chance of a Japanese finger-tapping rhythm game being described as niche. Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Arcade Future Tone is a big deal in the land of the rising sun, and there’s always an ample audience in the west ready for the latest import or localisation. Now, I’m no expert when it comes to the culture, but I was ready to go in with an open mind. The game boils down to choosing from an eclectic mix of J-pop songs, learning the rhythm, and trying to match the ... Read More

The Guv'nor

Tuesday, 17 January 2017
“I look what I am – a hard bastard!” – Lenny McLeanLenny McLean was arguably the end of an era for London’s East End gangland. Why? Because, after icons like the Krays and Frankie Fraser, Lenny was a criminal who transcended into celebrity culture and became a charming legend; despite being an unlicensed boxer, convicted criminal and prisoner, he was ultimately known as an author, businessman, actor and TV personality. This is something that simply doesn’t happen anymore. Lenny ... Read More

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping

Tuesday, 17 January 2017
I was first introduced to The Lonely Island (Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, and Akiva Schaffer) in my college days, when they became a hit on the web with parody songs such as ‘Dick In A Box’ and ‘I’m On A Boat’. I was reminded of them again when I saw Samberg playing the lead, Jake Parolta, in ‘Brooklyn 99’ (watch it if you don’t already), and now they’re all over the internet again with their newest feature-length parody film ‘Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping’.  ...

The Mechanic Resurrection

Monday, 16 January 2017
Following on from the ‘The Mechanic’, a film that was pretty okay but not as good as it could have been, ‘The Mechanic: Resurrection’ is Dennis Gansel’s latest film starring Jason Statham who again plays Arthur Bishop, a hitman who has quite a knack for causing the ‘accidental death’. He’s taken on a new identity, Santos, and it all seems to be going rather swimmingly until a rather angry yet illogical woman manages to find him. She needs him to take out three men on behalf of ...

The Everly Brothers - Harmonies from Heaven

Sunday, 15 January 2017
In 1973, an iconic music duo fell apart in front of an audience’s very eyes. After years performing together, Don and Phil Everly’s tensions came to a head during a performance at Knott’s Berry Farm in California. During the show, Phil smashed his guitar and walked off the stage while Don finished the show, ending their collaboration after 16 years together. The Everly Brothers influenced everyone, with Paul Simon calling them the ‘most beautiful sounding duo’ he had ever heard, that ... Read More

Bad Moms

Saturday, 14 January 2017
How many films have we had based around juvenile party-animal men? Too many. But how many have we had based around women? A small handful. Obviously, it’s time for another. Bad Moms gets off to a great start by not starring Melissa McCarthy, but is there anything else here to recommend?I’m not going to accuse Bad Moms of being sexist towards men although it arguably is, nor am I going to say that this is a film exclusively made for women – because nothing is only for a certain gender, or ...
