‘Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams 1×01: The Hood Maker’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

When the ads for Electric Dreams started to appear on television, the similarities with Black Mirror caught my attention straight away. Then it was revealed that the show was Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, and that made it a must watch. Now the first episode, The Hood Maker has launched, does the show live up […]

‘Rivers of London: Detective Stories #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics This arc has grown on me a little. Yes, it’s been a little mixed quality wise, but then again almost any central story told through multiple side tales always is. I quite like the ‘framing sequence with stories leading […]

‘Wolfenstein #1′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Dan Watters | Art by Piotr Kowalski, Ronilson Frere | Published by Titan Comics With the many video game franchises being converted into comic book form I guess it was just a matter of time before Wolfenstein also made that leap.

‘Last Day of June’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

I don’t often start a review with a spoiler warning, but this time I feel I should. If you’ve not played Last Day of June, it is best to play it through before reading a review. If you are willing to have minor spoilers that will inevitably leak through, then you have been warned. Suffice […]

‘American Horror Story – Cult 7×02: Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

After last episodes introduction to the main characters, this week’s American Horror Story: Cult takes the task of fleshing out the characters, and introducing new ones. It also gets busy with reminding us that fear is this year’s theme, and that scary clowns are just a small part of it. After the events of last […]

‘Rick and Morty 3×07: The Ricklantis Mixup’ Review

by Steven Riley

SPOILER ALERT: This review contains spoilers for season 3, episode 7 of Rick and Morty. If you have yet to see ‘The Ricklantis Mixup’ we advise you to do so. Now, if possible. Rick and Morty seems to work best when the shows take an ambitious (or ridiculous idea) and just roll with it. Pickle […]

The original Utawarerumono was first released in 2004, but only came out in Japan, although a 26-part anime series and some other assets did make it west. For whatever reason, developer Aquaplus […]

by Rupert Harvey

Stars: Jamie Foxx, Michelle Monaghan, Scoot McNairy, David Harbour, Dermot Mulroney | Written by Andrea Berloff | Directed by Baran bo Odar   The English-language debut of Swiss director Baran bo Odar delivers nothing of what we want, namely: half-decent action, interesting characters, witty writing, or surprising plot deviations. Jamie Foxx plays Vegas cop Vincent Downs, […]
