‘Bloody Muscle Body Builder in Hell’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Stars: Shinichi Fukazawa, Masaaki Kai, Asako Nosaka | Written and Directed by Shinichi Fukazawa When a film has a name like Bloody Muscle Body Builder in Hell, it comes with certain expectations.

‘Doctor Who 10×02: Smile’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

When I first saw the teaser for this episode of Doctor Who, I had to admit that the thought of an Emoji robot just didn’t work for me.

‘Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

If there is one genre of game that has pulled me in now I review games, it has to be the JRPG. While they tend to consume a lot of time, they tend to be full of lore, and drag you into a zany story. While sometimes they may not deliver, when they do they […]

‘Doctor Who 10×01: The Pilot’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

With the knowledge that Peter Capaldi is set to leave, and we also have a new companion, I will admit I was worried about the latest series of Doctor Who. With a name like The Pilot though, that insinuates a brand-new start for this show, but is this the names only meaning? The Doctor (Peter […]
