‘Penny Dreadful #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics Well last issue was something of a cracker I think you’d agree. The first issue of this new series, and essentially Season 4 of the TV show, lived up to my already high expectations and then some. Chris King managed to […]

‘Doctor Who 10×04: Knock Knock’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Ever since Blink, there has been an anticipation around creepy episodes of Doctor Who, that they will deliver the same creepiness. While some have come close, not many have managed to reach the same impressive quality of Blink. Knock Knock though promised something different, and that was David Suchet. In Knock Knock we are back […]

‘Sleepless’ Review

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, whom […]

‘Hook Jaw #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Si Spurrier | Art by Conor Boyle | Published by Titan Comics Hook Jaw has had plenty of bite so far, a lot to sink our teeth into and a story easy to dive into. Also ideal for bad puns apparently. Joking aside, Si Spurrier has managed to put a fresh spin and […]

‘Creep’ DVD Review

by Jack Kirby

Stars: Patrick Brice, Mark Duplass | Written by Patrick Brice, Mark Duplass | Directed by Patrick Brice   Creep‘s official synopsis breakdown involves the words ‘Craigslist; stranger; strange; improvised; mumblecore‘ which, whilst perhaps not the strongest selection, was more than enough to pique my interest. It was however the association with actor/writer/producer Mark Duplass and in particular, his […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #3.2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Officially, this is The Doctor’s mind going back to a previous adventure, even as […]

‘Doctor Who 10×03: Thin Ice’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Three episodes into this year’s season of Doctor Who, and we are in Victorian England. With more of a hint of Dickens about some of the tropes used in the episode, will Thin Ice be a damp squib of an episode, or a behemoth of excellence? Instead of returning The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Bill […]

‘Alien and Predator Figurine Collection: Captain Dallas’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Given that this week we’re celebrating Alien Day, it’s only fitting that I return to my reviews of the Alien and Predator Figurine Collection with a character from the original movie, and the choice is Captain Dallas. Captain Dallas played by the ever dependable Tom Skerrit is memorable not only for being the brunt of Ripley’s (Sigourney […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Abadzis | Art by Giorgia Sposito, Arianna Florean | Published by Titan Comics Ah, The Tenth Doctor. Simultaneously one of my favourite incarnations of The Doctor, and one of my least favourite Dr Who books. A little harsh perhaps, as objectively it is always a pretty decent quality book, but stacked up […]
