‘Takashi Miike’s Black Society Trilogy’ Review (Arrow Video)

by Paul Metcalf

Takashi Miike will always be an interesting director for me. My gateway into his world was with Audition, but Ichi the Killer teased me into his world of the Yakuza and the Triad. Now with Arrow’s release of Black Society Trilogy we get to see a more controlled set of films, which still aren’t afraid […]

‘The Missing: Series 2′ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

Fans of The Missing will remember the show for its well spun web of mystery that kept us guessing. Now that The Missing: Series 2 has been released, the question surrounding it is, can it top the story that the show had already told? The simple answer is yes, and it is all thanks to […]

‘Modus: Complete Season One’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

Part of my love of Nordic Noir is the dark style and tone of a lot of the shows. Modus is my latest for review, and is a beautifully dark tale pitting killer against psychologist. Almost pitch black in its style, the fact it reminded me of Hannibal in many ways is a very good […]

‘Assassin’s Creed: Original Motion Picture Score’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

It is fair to say that while I review a lot of movies, the scores aren’t really something I look at. This is why when I was offered the chance to review the Assassin’s Creed: Original Motion Picture Score composed by Jed Kurzel, I jumped at the chance. performed by the London Contemporary Orchestra it […]

‘Batman: The Telltale Series – Episode 5′ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

Telltale’s Batman has come to an end with City of Light, and in many ways, has delivered what we expect from the company. With plenty of uses of the new features brought to the Batman game, this episode does feel to be a step forward, but has Batman: The Telltale Series Episode 5 – City […]

‘The Little Acre’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

While adventure games seem to be dominated by Telltale’s high action style, sometimes it is nice to look back to the good old point and click adventures. This is where The Little Acre comes in, offering exactly that but with some little extra twists to the game play… The first thing you notice about The […]

‘Ash vs Evil Dead 2×10′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Let me get this out of the way first: I have to admit that the finale of the first season of Ash vs Evil Dead worried me. There was a certain feel to it that made the show appear to be going in more generic direction. However the second season took away those worries and […]

‘Braquo: The Complete Season Four’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

When it comes to my taste in television, I think my reviews give away my liking for Nordic Noir and European shows that look to the darker side of society. One that I’ve always managed to miss has been Braquo, but now I’ve managed to change this. Is Braquo: The Complete Season Four release a […]

‘Maize’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Corn fields are creepy, Stephen King taught us that. When you start playing a game though and see some of the corn seemingly taking a stroll through the rows, then it wouldn’t be long before you see death fast approaching. With Maize, which has released on PC though, death is the last thing you’ll be […]

‘Tim Vine Live: Tim Timinee Tim Timinee Tim Tim To You’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

When it comes to stand-up comedy I tend to like the comedians that tell a story and build up to a joke. There are some though that prefer the quick-fire one-liners style like Tim Vine… What I find with Tim Vine though is that he has a style that is inoffensive and easy to handle. […]

‘Super Dungeon Bros’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

Straight from the outset the game shines with character, with the ‘Bros’ being challenged to take on the dungeon and you are even asked to ‘Press X to Rock’. After this though, the character is somewhat diminished as the procedural maps of the dungeon crawler load in and you prepare to battle. The fun soundtrack […]

All it took was a glimpse of a certain character to get me excited for this episode. I didn’t worry that Bruce Wayne was going to be in danger in Telltale’s Batman Episode 4: Guardian of Gotham, or that Gotham could lose the protection of Batman. I finally got to see Telltale’s version of the […]
