Thought Bubble 2015: Post-Con Report & Interviews

by Mark Allen

The weekend of 14-15 November saw the annual Thought Bubble comic-con return once more to Leeds, and with it came a cornucopia of artists, writers, and their dazzling creations. Nerdly was on the scene the whole time, keeping an eye out for talented new creators, magnificent cosplay and, of course, invitations to alternate mid-con parties. (Sadly […]

‘Flesh and Bone 1×05: M.I.A’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“There are many girls, Angel. Who can keep track of them all?” The third act of ‘M.I.A’ is wrenchingly confident in its pacing, a tense and ugly progress toward a muted tragedy in the backseat of a luxurious private town car. If the first two acts spend their time in puzzling ways, branching into multiple […]

‘The Executioner Part II’ Blu-ray Review (Vinegar Syndrome)

by Phil Wheat

Stars: Christopher Mitchum, Aldo Ray, Antoine John Mottet, Renee Harmon, Dan Bradley, Jim Dratfield, Sandra Sterling | Written by Renee Harmon | Directed by James Bryan For years I, and many others, believed that James Bryan’s The Executioner Part II was one of those “hilarious” movies – like Leonard Part 6 and Surf II – […]

‘Game of Thrones: Episode 6 – The Ice Dragon’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

After the impressive way that Telltale Games managed to wrap up Tales From the Borderlands I wondered if Games of Thrones would find similar success. With Games of Thrones: Episode 6 – The Ice Dragon there were a lot of story strands to wrap up, and the problem may be that not all of them […]

‘Roy Chubby Brown Hangs Up the Helmet’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

Chubby Brown is somewhat of an acquired taste, and for many the fact that his latest DVD is called will be seen as good news. With some jokes that do go a little far he doesn’t exactly fit into the PC world that we appear to be becoming, but does that make him any less funny? […]

‘Heroes: Vengeance #2′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Seamus Kevin Fahey, Zach Craley | Art by Rubine | Published by Titan Comics | Format:Paperback, 32pp Issue 1 of this 5 issue limited series was a bit of a disappointment to me, it must be said. The idea is sound; take characters from the Heroes Reborn TV show, and give them an individual spotlight, add more depth and interest […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Syndicate’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

With the release of Assassin’s Creed Unity last year Ubisoft provided fans with a broken game and they weren’t happy… With this year’s Assassin’s Creed Syndicate the company had a big job on their hands, they had to win back the hearts and minds of their biggest critics. The gamers themselves. Setting the game in […]

‘Flesh and Bone 1×04: Boogie Dark’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“A rumble comes. The ground opens up. A black tongue reaches out. Bodies get pulled down, down, down. Swallowed, whole, before they even know they’re dead.” Flesh and Bone has been showing stress fractures since its premiere. Four episodes in there’s a pervasive sense that the messages the show espouses, the martial succinctness of the title […]

‘An Evening with Noel Fielding – Live’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

It’s fair to say that Noel Fielding is one of the more surreal comedians that has come out of the UK. Surreal but never boring. Coming to most people’s attention with The Mighty Boosh, then going a little too odd with Luxury Comedy it is fair to say he can be hit and miss at […]

‘Heroes: Vengeance #1′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Seamus Kevin Fahey, Zach Craley | Art by Rubine | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp For a brief time the television series Heroes was a cultural phenomenon, running from 2006-2010, though by its end it had badly run out of steam. That first season though stands up as good as any […]

‘WWE Christmas Collection’ DVD Review

by Phil Wheat

If you’re a wrestling fan you’ll know just how much the WWE loves Christmas. Seasonal shows have been a staple of their television output for as long as I can remember going as far back as Captain Lou Albano reading Christmas stories on WWE programming; through the Attitude era, where the fun of Xmas was […]

‘Doctor Who: 9×09 – Sleep No More’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

I am going to start this review by saying I like Doctor Who, in fact I love it. I also like a show that is not afraid to experiment, and do something new. The problem is Doctor Who: 9×09 – Sleep No More is an experiment that went wrong though as usual manages to have […]

‘Murderous Intent / Fright House’ Review (Vinegar Syndrome)

by Phil Wheat

One of the perks of backing Vinegar Syndrome’s move into video on demand (the now-launched Exploitation.TV) was a double bill limited edition DVD of Len Anthony’s Murderous Intent and Fright House, offered only to those who, like me, backed the Indiegogo campaign. Now I’d never heard of either movie. But given the fact that – […]

‘The Goonies: 30th Anniversary Collector’s Edition’ Blu-ray Review

by Paul Metcalf

There are few movies that tap into what it is to be a child, but The Goonies captures it perfectly. It may be adventurous and far-fetched, but that is the adventures we had when we were young. The Goonies: 30th Anniversary Collector’s Edition blu-ray celebrates the undying love that people have for the movie that […]

‘Flesh and Bone 1×03: Reconnaissance’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“‘There is no ‘there’ there.’” Reconnaissance, the third of Flesh and Bone‘s eight episodes, is as preoccupied with spying, interrogation, and information as its title suggests. The hour of inquest and mystery has its ups and downs, but the strange Hitchockian climax to which it builds is worth the bumpy ride. The dizzying sprint down the […]

‘Fallout 4′ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

NOTE: This review/initial thoughts is based on 10 solid hours of gameplay… There has been so much hype around Fallout 4 that it would be hard for the game to live up to what people expected it to be. One thing I noticed before its release though was the complaints around the game, mainly around […]
