‘WWE Survivor Series 2015′ Recap & Review

by Phil Wheat

As we head into this years Survivor Series there’s not only the loss of the current WWE champion to deal with but also an apparent terrorist threat to deal with too. No wonder the WWE let Lillian Garcia blast out “The Star Spangled Banner” as loud and as bold as as she possibly could!  That […]

‘Doctor Who 9×10: Face the Raven’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Doctor Who is a show that can make me swear at my television, because it can be so very annoying at times. With Doctor Who 9×10: Face the Raven, I knew what was coming as it was evident that one of my biggest grievances with Season 9 was about to cause issues for Clara and […]

‘Undertaker: The Streak 21-1 Ltd Ed. Coffin Box Set’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

If there was one wrestler who pulled me into being a fan at a young age it was The Undertaker. Already with a love of horror this was a figure in the ring that just oozed that gothic darkness that caught my attention. With WWE‘s Undertaker: The Streak 21-1 Limited Edition Coffin Box Set we […]

‘Pulse’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Most games treat the main character almost like a super hero, giving them the ability to withstand more than the average human could, and powers to give them an added edge. This is what allows us to enjoy the game, the escape from reality. In search for a new experience though some games have started […]

‘Flesh and Bone 1×08: Scorched Earth’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Now go out there, and fuck ‘em in the heart.” Scorched Earth gives the largest single bite of its extended running time to Claire actually dancing Toni’s Dakini. It’s a gutsy choice, hanging a season finale on a play within a play, but while it delivers moments of transcendence it also edges out all possible resolution for loose ends […]

‘Flesh and Bone 1×07: Full Dress’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“A little pain is a fact of this life. To feel it is a choice. I choose no.” Paul said it way back in the premiere: a ballerina’s job is to make the arduous look effortless. Full Dress takes that thought and runs with it, giving us a full hour of people trying desperately to […]

‘Hollywood Banker’ DVD Review

by Phil Wheat

Hollywood Banker, directed by Frans Afman’s daughter Rozemyn, charts the bankers early days working with producer Dino De Laurentiis through to his fall out with Credit Lyonnais Nederland over the company’s financing of MGM to Giancarlo Parretti, which would result in both the bank and the studio’s bankruptcy. It’s hard to believe that, before Afman, […]

‘Jessica Jones – Season 1′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Jessica Jones has finally arrived on Netflix, and while some may be tiring of the superhero movies and television shows has been a lot of hope for the latest Marvel show. With a Neo-noir style and a more adult feel to it, Marvel may have a hit on their hands… Starring Krysten Ritter as Jessica […]

‘Flesh and Bone 1×06: F.U.B.A.R’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

Ross: “Which movement do you want?” Paul: “Childhood.” F.U.B.A.R is messier, less visually stimulating, and broader than the hard-hitting ‘M.I.A,’ an unending procession of gloom and doom which spends far too long showing us how fucked up each and every character is when it comes to work, love, and family. The holidays, stressful even for […]

‘WWE Night of Champions 2015′ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

WWE Night of Champions 2015 SHOULD be a celebration of the companies best. Though we know this is not how the WWE work, even if they want you to believe they do… We have to have much more drama in the matches than celebrate something as silly as “wrestling”. Joking aside, WWE Night of Champions 2015 had […]

‘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 […]

‘Roy Chubby Brown Hangs Up the Helmet’ DVD Review

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? […]
