‘House of Cards 4×01 – 4×03: Chapters 40-42′ Review

by Catherina Gioino

Man oh man. I mean, it still doesn’t live up to the “I killed a recurring character in the first episode” act that House of Cards pulled in season two, but it introduces the ever wonderful Ellen Burstyn as Claire’s dying mother Elizabeth Hale and Neve Campbell acting as Claire’s “Doug” counterpart Leann Harvey. There’s […]

‘Doctor Who: The 9th Doctor Vol.1 – Weapons of Past Destruction’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Blair Shedd, Rachel Scott | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 128pp Although not my favourite incarnation, I have a lot of affection for Christopher Eccleston’s all too short run as the 9th Doctor. After years without a show, when Dr Who looked like it was permanently […]

‘Johnny Red #5′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Garth Ennis | Art by Keith Burns | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Johnny Red has been, without doubt, one of my favourite non-superhero books of the last year, and possibly my favourite non-DC/Marvel book. Although I’m a Garth Ennis fan of many years, I’m not a big war book aficionado […]

‘Alienated’ Review

by Richard Axtell

Stars: George Katt, Jen Burry, Taylor Negron | Written and Directed by Brian Ackley Reality check: Alienated isn’t a science fiction film. I know, I know, it’s got “alien” in the title, and yes, there are UFOs involved in the story. However, Alienated is as much a sci-fi film as two pieces of bread with […]

‘Better Call Saul 2×04: Gloves Off’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“That’s a bell you don’t un-ring.” The secret to not living in a state of perpetual regret is, of course, to make the right choice in the first place. Witness Jimmy scrambling to correct his eminently preventable error, one that saw Kim banished to document processing in the basement of HHM, and you have all the […]

‘Vinyl 1×04: The Racket’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Put it into the couch, not your marriage.” ‘The Racket’ is loud, angry, and fucking hilarious. It begins with Richie taking his anger out not on his and Devon’s relationship but, at his glacially calm therapist’s suggestion, on the couch. With a tennis racket. His subsequent golden-boy claim that he’s worked out his shit is […]

‘The Venture Bros 6×06: It Happening One Night’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“We’ll know how cool we look.” I think the Monarch just murdered Andy Warhol. Or Wes Warhammer, anyway. Who may or may not have been Andy Warhol. ‘It Happening One Night’ sadly repairs the hole in the floor of Venture Tower, but that doesn’t stop it from being one of the season’s best entries so […]

Written and Drawn by Alessandro Barbucci, Barbera Canepa | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Hardback, 232pp As much as I love comic books, and after reading them for far too many years it’s just as well that I do, sometimes you can get just that little bit jaded and find too much ‘sameness’ in […]

‘Superhot’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

When it comes to first person shooting games innovation isn’t really something you expect. The idea is you point a gun at people and you shoot, what else can you do? Superhot is the answer that you may not expect. Prepare to show Keanu Reeves how to really manipulate The Matrix… There is a campaign […]
