‘Gravity Rush 2′ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

Originally released in 2012, Gravity Rush became something of cause-celebre amongst gamers. There were those that hailed the Vita exclusive title as one of the truly hidden gems on the platform: a beautiful looking title with gameplay unrestrained by traditional platform mechanics. Whilst there were others that denounced the game than little more than a […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Templars #9′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Dennis Calero | Art by Dennis Calero | Published by Titan Comics Assassin’s Creed Templars #9 brings both some good news and some bad news it seems. The bad news is that this issue will be the final one of the series. That, for me, is a real shame as this has been […]

‘Humans 2.0′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

While I’ve known of Humans and how well the show was received, to my shame I never really watched it. When I got the chance to watch Humans 2.0 though, I decided to dive in and take it from the starting point of the second series. Through the catch-up I was able to pick-up on […]

by Rupert Harvey

Stars: Adam Sandler, Emily Watson, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Luis Guzman, Mary Lynn Rajskub | Written and Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson If you’re Paul Thomas Anderson, how do you follow up a succession of sprawling epics like Boogie Nights and Magnolia?

‘Hook Jaw #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

‘The Bureau: Complete Season One’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

The fictional world of espionage is normally presented to us in the form of people like James Bond where it’s all about action and seducing beautiful women. The Bureau: Complete Season One though gives us a more realistic and deadly interpretation based on real accounts from the French Intelligence Service. When intelligence officer Guillaume Debailly […]

‘Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor #9′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Adriana Melo | Published by Titan Comics Although this title has in general been a little underwhelming, there have been moments that make you think it’s just about to turn the corner, that it’s going to go on a run of fine issues. The previous story arc was […]

‘Rise and Shine’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

If you are a fan of good old school platform games, you tend to have a love affair with any that happen to find their way to you. This is what happened to me when I was able to try out Rise and Shine. Like some relationships though, the punishment they cause can sometimes be […]

by Joel Harley

Stars: Bill Oberst Jr., Jason Vail, David Saucedo, Miles Joris-Peyrafitte, D’Angelo Midili, Connor Conrad, Jordan Neslund | Written and Directed by John Portanova Horror movie monsters don’t get much goofier than the Sasquatch.

‘Takashi Miike’s Black Society Trilogy’ Review (Arrow Video)

by Paul Metcalf

Takashi Miike will always be an interesting director for me. My gateway into his world was with Audition, but Ichi the Killer teased me into his world of the Yakuza and the Triad. Now with Arrow’s release of Black Society Trilogy we get to see a more controlled set of films, which still aren’t afraid […]
