‘Secret Files 2: Puritas Cordis’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Chris Cummings

Secret Files 2 was released about ten years ago, and this port of that game is very much the same game we got back in 2009, albeit with a few little improvements. It sure does feel like you just popped your PS2 on to play it though, feeling dated and tired as you make your […]

Opinionated: Why Do We Love Seeing 80s Nostalgia in TV and Movies?

by Chris Cummings

Stranger Things is a good example of the use of that feeling of nostalgia selling a show or film. I mean, the Netflix Original program is a huge hit, and a good part of that is because of the nostalgic brilliance of it. Whether it’s New Coke, Back to the Future, 80s Horror, fashion, music […]

Ten Best: ECW Pay-Per-Views of All Time

by Chris Cummings

Remember ECW? I do. Extreme Championship Wrestling was the underground wrestling phenomenon that had a cult following in the 90s and still does today. It was on the fringe.

Welcome back folks. So, being a fan of wrestling means you see the same conversations and discussions going on between fans, discussions that never really change.

‘Underworld Wrestling: Season 1′ Review (Amazon Prime)

by Chris Cummings

Underworld Wrestling, now available to stream on Amazon Prime (Season 1) started out as a Kickstarter campaign in 2018 and follows a template I can only really compare to the cult-wrestling-hit Lucha Underground. The wrestling is there, it’s what what you’d expect from a pro-wrestling show, but everything else, from backstory to characters to storylines, […]

It’s been eighteen years since World Championship Wrestling closed its doors when it’s number one competitor, WWE, bought it after its decline in the early 00s.

‘Simon Amstell: Set Free’ Stand-up Special Review (Netflix)

by Chris Cummings

Like many Brits probably do, I know Simon Amstell for his run as one of the hosts of the BBC 2 late-night music-quiz comedy show Never Mind the Buzzcocks.
