It’s the year 2084, and augmentation is commonplace among humans. The nanophage, a deadly virus affecting the augmented, has wiped out thousands, and the remaining survivors live now under Chiron, the overbearing corporation that seems to be involved in everything you do. This is the dystopian future you find yourself in throughout ‘Observer’, Bloober’s latest survival horror game available for Xbox, PS4, and PC, and one of the reason it’s so scary is that it’s not all that ...

The Mummy ★☆☆☆☆

Thursday, 21 September 2017
There’s been quite a few films from ‘The Mummy’ so far (7 before now if you count the ‘straight to DVD’ releases), so it’s likely that most people will have seen at least one. I remember the original ‘The Mummy’ quite well as it was one of the first 12-rated films that I watched and, being a child, thought it was awesome. I then watched some of the others later on, but gave up by about the fourth one.Now however, we’re being treated to yet another unnecessary reboot of a ... Read More

The Big Sick ★★★★★

Tuesday, 19 September 2017
‘The Big Sick’, written by Kamail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, depicts a cinematic version of the story of their courtship (the two are now happily married). Kamail, played by himself, is a part-time Uber driver and part-time hopeful comedian, who spends his evenings gigging with his friends in the hopes of making it big (or at least, getting noticed). One evening he finds himself in a conversation with Emily (Zoe Kazan), and the two go back to his afterwards. What was supposed to be just ... Read More

Agents of Mayhem ★☆☆☆☆

Saturday, 16 September 2017
Volition have made some of my favorite games over the years. The Red Faction series, The Punisher for PS2 and the Saints Row Series. Sadly Volition no longer own the rights to Saints Row so instead made a spin off game based on a possible ending, from Gat out of Hell, where Johnny Gat resets the world and now we have Heroes and Super Villains running a near future Seoul, Korea. For whatever reason (sales) Johnny Gat is only available as DLC, in Agents of Mayhem.Agents of Mayhem is that kid at ... Read More

Ghost in the Shell ★★★☆☆

Thursday, 14 September 2017
Long before anime became easily accessible and predominantly about angsty high schoolers with kawaii mascot characters to sell merch of, we had an era of grim future dystopias, corruption, barbaric civilisations and Cybercrime. While I've come to accept that I'll never own Cyber city, Fist of the North Star, Angel Cop or Battle Angel Alita on DVD/Blu Ray, the likes of Akira and Ghost in the Shell (GitS) get a cleaned up re-released every few years for anniversaries or when someone else acquires ...

Wonder Woman ★★★★☆

Tuesday, 12 September 2017
Please read this review enthusiastically humming the original Wonder Woman theme music.It’s fair to say that DC has somewhat botched their cinematic universe thus far, with both Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad falling as flat as pancakes with fans and critics alike. Despite this false start to the franchise, a Wonder Woman origin film set in World War One had many intrigued, if nothing else.Could this be DC’s saving trump card? Grab your Lasso of Truth and let’s ... Read More

Nokia 6 ★★★☆☆

Monday, 11 September 2017
We’ve managed to get our hands on the Nokia 6, let’s find out if customers still love Nokia for their solid build quality or is there something else that the Nokia 6 offers…The Nokia 6 comes in Blue, Silver, Copper, Black and Matte Black. A charger and earphones are included in the box. Holding the phone gives you a solid and sturdy feel since it’s an Aluminium Unibody design with chamfered edges. The back is slippery and I recommend having a  case (although the one drop that it ... Read More

Ash vs Evil Dead ★★★★☆

Saturday, 09 September 2017
Listen up you primitive screwheads…25 years ago Sam Raimi gave us Army of Darkness, the final movie in the Evil Dead trilogy and the last outing of the series’ bumbling hero, Ash Williams. Now Ash returns as a middle aged slacker living alone in a trailer park, still working at Value Stop (formerly S-Mart) but now wrestling with a girdle. That is until he accidentally unleashes a new plague of Deadites. As you do.Let’s take a look at whether Ash Vs Evil Dead lives up to its cult ... Read More

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword ★★☆☆☆

Thursday, 07 September 2017
Well, let’s get this over with…When it was announced that Guy Ritchie would be helming King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, it left many excited for a unique twist on the classic tale. What’s more, the preceding trailers helped ramp up expectations for a high-budget, visually stunning popcorn flick. With that in mind, let’s take a look at whether the film lives up to that early promise.The GoodTruthfully, there wasn’t a lot, however it would be remisced of me not to mention the few ...
