Kong: Skull Island

Tuesday, 18 July 2017
Kong: Skull Island is the second film in the expanding genre of Expanded Universes after the highly acclaimed 2014 Godzilla movie. Kong : Skull Island stars Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L Jackson, John Goodman, Brie Larson and John C Reilly, but really it could have just been a handful of putties from the original Power Rangers episodes for all the good it does the film. This reboot answers the question of whether or not an entire cast built from the MCU backlog could work if handed a script that is ... Read More

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy

Monday, 17 July 2017
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane TrilogyThe original Crash Bandicoot came out the day before my 11th birthday, just under 21 years ago... scary thought.It shot Naughty Dog, these days known for the Uncharted series and The Last of Us, into the big leagues. At the time Crash Bandicoot changed the standard of what platform games could do.No longer just going left to right, but now into and towards the screen. This may seems silly now, but in 1996 we were still waiting for Mario 64.While we've had a lot of ... Read More

Boss Baby

Tuesday, 11 July 2017
Ever wondered why there hasn’t yet been a children’s film about babies that are actually managers and wear tiny suits, whilst hoping to climb up the ranks to get provided with the greatest office space of all time? I’ve gotta admit that it’s not something that’s been at the forefront of my mind (or anyone else’s that I can think of), yet Dreamworks Animation have gone ahead and given it to us anyway.Tim is a 7-year-old boy who loves being an only child, as it means he gets loads of ...

Star Wars: Rogue One

Tuesday, 04 July 2017
The first of the next anthology series of Star Wars spin offs, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” shares the tale of the original rebel spies who managed to steal the plans for the Death Star in a bid to save the galaxy. The movie is a sort-of prequel to “Episode IV: A New Hope,” and focuses on the events surrounding the innovative weapon. Gareth Edwards manages to fuse the essence of the original trilogy with this modern CGI extravaganza that impresses devoted fans and lure the newest ... Read More

Nokia 3310 (2017)

Friday, 23 June 2017
The Nokia 3310 (2017) is one of the best feature phones that you can definitely flaunt! Most countries across the world have limited availability which shows even HMD wasn’t sure of the demand this device would generate. Contrary to popular belief, HMD Global is the manufacturer of the Nokia 3310 Reboot handset and not Nokia.They’ve acquired rights to the brand name Nokia from Microsoft for 10 years. Let’s see if the device is actually a “modern classic redesigned”.Coming out of a ... Read More

John Wick Chapter 2

Thursday, 15 June 2017
Did John Wick really need a sequel? A return of $88m from a $20m budget means that it made good fiscal sense, while it was received well by a majority of critics. The stylised shooter was better than the average action flick, while most could empathise with his road to vengeance. Whether it be his dog or his car, Wick (Keanu Reeves) is most definitely a fan of disproportionate retribution.Clearly he’s not a man that should be crossed, but it happens once again as somebody who should know ...

Tekken 7

Thursday, 15 June 2017
I used to believe that Heihachi Mishima could take off his shoe, and shove it into an opponent's face in a devastating one-hit KO. Of course, it turned out to be a childish lie formed from the mouth of a bored ten-year-old back in the year 2000, in a time before the internet could dispel bs with a few quick taps on a smartphone.In any case, I was always fascinated by the King of Iron First Tournament, as it continued to expand and improve with each successive entry. The roster was always ... Read More

The Russian Empire are now a playable faction, new maps, and female soldiers. (Google it. Russian female soldiers were badass during the war)Your usual batch of Yearly updated EA Sports titles.

World Of Final Fantasy

Thursday, 08 June 2017
Square Enix love a good spin-off game – they’ve made quite a lot already for the ‘Final Fantasy’ franchise, and they’re not stopping yet. ‘World of Final Fantasy’ is the newest game to hit the PS4 and Playstation Vita, but for some reason this one feels less ‘Final Fantasy’ and more a combination between ‘Kingdom Hearts’ and ‘Pokémon’.Set in Grimoire, a combination of all of the previous ‘Final Fantasy’ locations, the player takes control of twins Lann and Reynn ...
