How wonderful and strange it is that one of the most enthralling thrillers of recent memory is a documentary. Every horror movie of recent years opens with some form of “based on real life events that actually happened and definitely are not fictitious”, before launching into a story about possession, ghosts, and suspiciously vague webcam footage. Citizenfour does not open with one of these claims, instead opting for a statement from the documentarian, Laura Poitras, explaining how she has ... Read More

Rugby World Cup 2015

Sunday, 04 October 2015
Any sort of world sporting event drums up great excitement that makes the regular Joe or Jolene Soap want to put on the virtual sporting gear and become one of the greats.

The last Rugby World Cup game, which came out in 2011, ... Read More

Fast and Furious 7

Saturday, 03 October 2015
If you have made it this far into the modern day masterpieces that are the Fast and Furious films then you already have a pretty good idea what to expect with the seventh instalment. Feeling like the lovechild of Vin Diesel and an explosion, Fast and Furious 7 is a completely insane thrill ride from start to finish, somehow being crazier than the previous one. The stunts are bigger, the fetishizing of women more extreme, and the relationships are somehow even more ... Read More

Forza Motorsport 6

Friday, 02 October 2015
One of the hardest parts of any racing game is making the 100th or 500th time turning the same corner fun. While Forza Motorsport 5 was an impressive first entry on Xbox One, Forza Motorsport 6 takes everything great about the previous game, brings new features and enhancements, and marries them to create one of the finest racing games ever created. Developed by Turn 10 Studios and out now on Xbox One comes Forza Motorsport 6. The key that has kept the Forza Motorsport series fun has ... Read More

Until Dawn

Thursday, 01 October 2015
When it comes to video games, the words "interactive" and "movie" will bring nothing but sighs and groans. That will all change with Until Dawn. What once was a troubled Move game for the PlayStation 3 has somehow become the biggest and most pleasant surprise of the year, although pleasant may not be the word to describe the game.  Until Dawn, which is developed by Supermassive Games is out now on PlayStation 4, has a premise pulled straight from horror movie clichés. There are a ... Read More

Avengers: Age of Ultron

Wednesday, 30 September 2015
Out now on DVD and Blu-ray, Avengers: Age of Ultron is the latest film (apart from Ant-Man) in the now expansive Marvel film canon. It had a lot of things to achieve. It needed to be as good as people have come to expect from Marvel in the past, it needed to be bigger than the first Avengers, it needed to lay the foundations for the next few films and it had to please the Whedonites. Does it succeed? Read on! This sequel to the 2012 original sees Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’ resident ... Read More

Super Mario Maker

Monday, 28 September 2015

The truth is of course that such a level wouldn't survive long at all with Nintendo's censors doing the rounds, and perhaps it would even get you a temporary or permanent level sharing ban; ...

Escobar: Paradise Lost

Sunday, 27 September 2015
For those of you who don’t know Entourage, it was a brilliant comedy series (and disappointing film) that followed the lives of a fictional young actor and his friends trying to get by in Hollywood, given extra authenticity by having countless actors playing themselves and making the Entourage world feel like the real world. Back in the early years of the show, a running storyline was Vincent Chase’s attempts to secure the role of Pablo Escobar in ‘Medellin’, an Escobar biopic within ... Read More

Strongly based on the Durst ... Read More
