‘The Fall: Series 3′ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

In some ways, it is surprising that the third series of The Fall was made, especially with Jamie Dornan filming the 50 Shades of Grey movies. The second series ended in such a way that it could have been a good way to end, but that would have missed out on a much darker way to […]

‘Ash vs Evil Dead 2×05′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

After the events of last episode, it was easy to guess that the next chapter of Ash vs Evil Dead was coming, and this week we finally got to see the Big Bad. We’ve had hints of Baal many times, but in this episode, we finally got to see him. After the more action packed […]

‘The Library Suicides’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

Stars: Catrin Stewart, Dyfan Dwyfor, Carwyn Glyn, Sharon Morgan, Ryland Teifi | Written by Fflur Dafydd | Directed by Euros Lyn I have to admit, I’ve never really taken notice if a film is Welsh, but The Library Suicides (aka Y Llyfrgell) is different. Actually, in Welsh, it stands out as a film that feels more […]

‘Mycroft Holmes #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Raymond Obstfeld | Art by Joshua Cassara | Published by Titan Comics This was a pleasant surprise on my reading pile last time round. I didn’t really have that high expectations of a comic featuring Sherlock Holmes’s brother (why would you?) but I like the direction they went, in showing us […]

‘Penny Dreadful #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Louie De Martinis | Published by Titan Comics Like most Penny Dreadful fans I was really disappointed when the show’s creator, John Logan, announced the third season would be the last. Again like most, I don’t buy into his statements that he only ever planned three seasons to […]

‘The Night Of’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

In a perfect world, we would like the judicial system to work with the aim of protecting the innocent, but in this cynical age we know that this doesn’t always happen. The Night Of takes us through a trip through this system, showing just how dark and heartless it can be. When Nasir (Riz Ahmed) […]

‘Doctor Who: The Third Doctor #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Paul Cornell | Art by Christopher Jones | Published by Titan Comics Second issues. I wonder if writers sit in front of that computer screen wondering just how they can maintain the quality of that first issue, or even up the ante. Or do they just laugh at us mere mortals and have […]

‘Luke Cage: Complete First Season’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Based in Harlem, Luke Cage, Netflix’s latest Marvel show, has a different feel to Daredevil and Jessica Jones but lives in the same universe as the two. Does he have enough strength to not only save Harlem though but to stand out in his own show? After the events of Jessica Jones, we find Cage […]

‘Ash vs Evil Dead 2×04′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Dealing with the fallout from last week’s Ash vs Evil Dead, episode four leaps straight into the action. What it also does though is fall into the trap of being an episode about progression. A stop-gap between a major plot point, and hopefully one to come in the next episode. With the Delta still possessed and […]

‘Warhammer 40k: Will of Iron #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by Tazio Bettin | Published by Titan Comics I must confess to not really know much about Warhammer, other than it is huge in the niche it occupies. I know it was created back in the 1980′s, and has evolved steadily from a humble table top game to the […]

The episode we’ve been waiting for is finally here. This third episode of season 2 of Ash vs Evil Dead sees the debut of Ted Raimi. This is not only something of an Evil Dead reunion, but also Xena as I’m sure you’ll all know he was Joxer in that 90s fantasy show… you all remember […]
