Louder Than Bombs

Saturday, 01 October 2016
In a world where films are so often dominated by explosions, loud music, and shiny CGI, it can feel very powerful to watch one that is the complete opposite. ‘Louder Than Bombs’, the first English-speaking film directed by Joachim Trier (‘Oslo, August 31st’ and ‘Reprise’), is certainly one of those films.After the death of famous war photographer Isabelle Reed (Isabelle Huppert), killed in a car crash just a short while after retiring from her all-consuming career, her bereaved ...

God Eater 2: Rage Burst

Thursday, 29 September 2016
God Eater has garnered a cult following over the past half a decade. Despite all of this, it never really had a Western release, until now. God Eater 2: Rage Burst is a remaster of the game that launched on PlayStation Vita. Even though the game is an absolute blast to play, so many aspects of its legacy remain making it a bit of a mixed bag. Developed by Shift and out now on PlayStation 4, God Eater 2: Rage Burst could be taken as something similar to Monster Hunter. Honestly, that would be a ... Read More

Nice Guys

Tuesday, 27 September 2016
‘The Nice Guys’, directed by Shane Black, (known for the ‘Lethal Weapon’ series and ‘Iron Man 3, among others) is a film that I’ve been wanting to watch for a while – the trailer promised lots of hilarious one liners, along with some seriously stylised ‘70s. I always worry when I see a hilarious trailer that most of the jokes have already been heard, but thankfully there was a damn good film behind it this time.Set in the late ‘70s, Holland Marsh (Ryan Gosling) is a private ...

Top 5 Game Endings That Make You Go "WAIT....WHAT?!"

Tuesday, 27 September 2016
Games have a much bigger build up to story climaxes than movies. A movie will tell its whole story in less than three hours whereas some games’ climax is about the same time. So after you’ve spend many hours overcoming many obstacles, facing many twists along the way, and enduring the toughest challenges, the anticipation of how it all comes together can be pretty exciting. There are some games that come along and when the ending credits appear on screen you go: “wait . . . . ... Read More

Remember

Monday, 26 September 2016
The Holocaust was one of the most shocking and upsetting times in history. Despite a large number of films based around it – Schindler’s List, Son of Saul, etc. – there have never really been any set in the present about the long-lasting effects. People forget that those who survived it were still victims, and still had their lives ruined by their experiences. It’s something we should never forget. Atom Egoyan’s latest film is a harrowing study of one of these survivors, who decides ... Read More

Sunday, 25 September 2016
Sometimes, filmmakers can adapt even the most ‘unfilmable’ source material into an incredible and faithful piece of work, such as Ben Wheatley’s recent High-Rise. But on the other side of that, there are the most simple books, plays, radio shows, games, TV shows and comics that somehow get totally f*cked by Hollywood. Here are 5 of the all-time worst.The Hitchhiker's Guide To The GalaxyDon’t forget your towel…to wipe away the tears. This adaptation of Douglas Adams’ iconic sci-fi is ... Read More

Psycho Pass: Mandatory Happiness

Saturday, 24 September 2016
The future’s a scary place, isn’t it? If all these movies and TV series are to be believed (and why would we doubt them?), something is going to go horribly, horribly wrong. Which number will fate stop the roulette at? Nuclear war? That ol’ favourite, zombie apocalypse? Or perhaps, as the Psycho Pass anime has it, we’ll all be assigned our place in society according to the whims of a mysterious automated system; a system which, incidentally, is also responsible for identifying people ...
