‘Billy Club’ Review

by Mark Allen

Stars: Marshall Caswell, Erin Hammond, Nick Sommer, Max Williamson, Mark Metcalf, Mathew Dunlop | Written and Directed by Drew Rosas, Nick Sommer I’ve always had a soft spot for slashers with a decent gimmick, so I was delighted when Billy Club‘s penchant for baseball-related violence was revealed. Too many horror movies are content to stick to the humdrum formula of having […]

‘Jodorowsky‘s Dune’ Review

by Dan Clark

Often it is the one that gets away that leaves the biggest impact. For director Alejandro Jodorowsky his white whale was his dream of adapting the literary classic Dune. It was a dream he came inches close of achieving only to see it disintegrate in a cloud of dry dust.    Although the movie was never made […]

‘Lords of the Fallen’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Some will call Lords of the Fallen a Dark Souls rip-off and others will argue against that comparison. The truth is it fits somewhere in between. Lords of the Fallen borrows a lot from Dark Souls but tries to offer something different, giving a more linear experience and in some ways giving more fun for those […]

‘Fog and Crimes: The Complete First Season’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

After watching Gomorrah moving to another Italian crime drama was something of a relief from the violent and dark world of the Mafia. Fog and Crimes: The Complete First Season is a more sedate trip into the world of a detective who doesn’t really go for the violent approach, but when he sets his sights on […]

‘Gomorrah: The Complete Season One’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

When you look at the fictional world of the crime families, especially those of the Mafia it’s about tradition and respect.  Gomorrah is a drama that looks at what happens when respect is not given and tradition is attacked. The falling of a family empire is rarely a peaceful death, it calls for blood and it […]

by Paul Metcalf

Writing this I know that I have to point out that I love Doctor Who, I doubt anything would make me stop watching it…but I have to be honest.  In the Forest of the Night is placed before the final two episodes that make up the finale, and we all know what that means, this […]

As a gamer there are genres that I don’t play as often as others, RPGs being one and racing games the other. When it comes to the latter I tend to find racers that I love and stick with those – games such as Outrun and its sequel, Burnout Paradise, and Split Second (which is […]
