‘Robotech #2′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Brian Wood | Art by Marco Turini | Published by Titan Comics The term ‘reboot’ can be overused these days, used for the most minor changes or just to drum up interest in a new Number 1 issue. Not so with the Robotech reboot from Brian Wood and Marco Turini, which as the […]

‘Rick and Morty 3×06: Rest and Ricklaxation’ Review

by Steven Riley

As Rick and Morty season three reaches it’s halfway point, we have had already seen the different directions the show can go in… With ‘Pickle Rick’ and ‘Vindicators 3’ we had the more classic Rick and Morty adventures as the writers set up ridiculous yet riotous premises and followed them through with sharp writing and […]

‘Lord of the Flies’ Blu-ray Review (Criterion)

by Rupert Harvey

Stars: James Aubrey, Tom Chapin, Hugh Edwards, Tom Gaman | Written and Directed by Peter Brook Peter Brook is best known for his work in theatre, but his 1963 screen adaptation of William Golding’s English Lit classic is no quaint repertory effort.

‘Rabi-Ribi’ Review (PS4)

by Matthew Smail

In Rabi-Ribi, players control Erina, a so-called “Bunny Girl” who begins the game trapped inside a cardboard box, having been transformed from an actual bunny into her current, humanoid form. It’s a weird intro, and the very basic pixel art of the main game juxtaposes with the finely drawn, anime-style stills of Erina kneeling in […]

‘Game of Thrones 7×07: The Dragon & The Wolf’ Review

by Steven Riley

In it’s early seasons, Game of Thrones gained itself a reputation for it’s climactic and gripping penultimate episodes. Whether it’s Ned Stark’s shocking death in season one, the epic Battle of the Blackwater from season two or the nerve-wrangling massacre of the Red Wedding (I still have flashbacks to this day), the show seemed to […]

‘Twin Peaks 3×16′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

In David Lynch, we trust. That should be what all Twin Peaks fans are thinking right now. What he and Mark Frost have given us in the 16th episode in this return is nothing short of perfect, and is sum of all of the parts that have come before it. Now next week, we have […]
