The Trials of Muhammad Ali

Tuesday, 30 June 2015
I love a good documentary - what can I say, I like to learn. But when choosing one to watch, ordinarily I’d look right past something like this. Anyone who knows me will tell you I don’t follow any sports, nor do I have any interest in them. But this one grabbed me. Why? Because despite the subject, this is not a sports film. Out now only on DVD, as a single release or in a boxset with I Am Ali and When We Were Kings, comes The Trials of Muhammad Ali.Directed by Bill Siegel, The Trials of ... Read More

PayDay 2: Crimewave Edition

Monday, 29 June 2015
PayDay 2 was a game that I didn’t get round to playing when it first came out, so to hear that it was receiving what is now the common “remastered” treatment pleased me. I liked the look of it back in 2013; the concept seemed interesting as its rare in games to be controlling the bad guys. However, after a few hours of playing it, I was already starting to notice a few problems with the game, and it definitely isn’t the best remastered version of a game we’ve seen. Developed by ...

Stretch

Sunday, 28 June 2015
I didn’t have any idea what to expect going into Stretch. I didn’t watch any trailers or read the plot synopsis. I didn’t read any reviews. I saw the cover of the Blu-ray and was sold. It looked interesting and a little bizarre – the best kind of film! I bought it, put it in my player and watched it. I’m glad I did. And I’m also very glad that I didn’t know what to expect.  Out now on Blu-Ray and DVD comes Stretch, a rather unusual film, but a very original and entertaining ... Read More

Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited

Saturday, 27 June 2015
After a very lengthy delay, Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited has finally arrived! Being a huge fan girl of the Elder Scrolls series, I couldn’t be happier, and that itch to dive back into Tamriel on my PS4 could now be scratched. Fresh off the bat from playing The Witcher 3 for two weeks straight, jumping back into another RPG has taken over my life again. Unlike The Witcher 3, you need to put many, many hours into Elder Scrolls Online before the best content is accessible. Is it worth ... Read More

The Gambler

Friday, 26 June 2015
Remakes. Who needs them? Why take a perfectly good film that still holds up today, and make it again? Although I do not agree with it, I can partly understand the advantage of updating films with dated special effects. But a dialogue-driven drama about the timeless subject of gambling addiction? If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. But that’s exactly what has been done here, with this downright unnecessary remake: The Gambler. In 1974, James Toback wrote the original story, heavily inspired ...

Farming Simulator 15

Thursday, 25 June 2015
The current market for games seems to have settled into a bit a of a pattern. Call of Duty, Bloodborne, The Witcher; all action packed titles, each of them flaunting the top end graphics and vast, expansive and highly detailed worlds, showing off the newest generation of consoles. Enter, then, the newest release from Giants Software and Focus Interactive: Farming Simulator 15. Despite having been out on PC for some time now, Farming Simulator 15 - a glaring oddity amidst the current gaming ... Read More

Selma

Wednesday, 24 June 2015
From director Ava DuVernay comes Selma, out now on DVD & Blu-Ray. The film recounts the tumultuous period in 1965 in which Martin Luther King campaigned to secure equal voting rights by way of an epic march in Alabama, changing history forever - we all know the story; it is history, and an important part of it too. And I know what you’re thinking – “oh great, another film about racial inequality”. I know, it’s something of an annual fixture, after films like The Help and 12 Years ... Read More

R.E.M. by MTV

Tuesday, 23 June 2015
Before sitting down with this film, I hadn’t listened to R.E.M. in a long time. I listen to a hell of a lot of music and go to a lot of live shows, but in recent years since the band’s 2011 split I’d almost forgotten about them. Times change and, as we discover new artists we like, we must put old ones to the back of our minds. R.E.M. were one of the first bands I listened to religiously and loved, and will always have a special place in my heart for that. They have influenced endless ... Read More

Square Enix @ E3 2015

Monday, 22 June 2015
So this is it. The final E3 press conference came down to Square Enix, the legendary developer/publisher that has brought us many, many gaming classics over the years. I can't really remember when Square Enix did a live E3 event prior to this, but I was more than happy to check out what they had going this year. Compared to other press conferences, this event was kind of low key, lacked gimmicks or celebrities, and generally came across as interesting, honest and real. I liked it, and here's ... Read More

Black Sea

Sunday, 21 June 2015
The ocean is fascinating. It takes up approximately 70% of the Earth’s surface. Isn’t that amazing? It contains 97% of the world’s water. Wow! The pressure at the deepest point in the ocean is the equivalent of one person trying to support 50 jumbo jets. Holy moly! But hey, enough of the nautical facts. I have a review to write. And I knew those facts off the top of my head, I didn’t get them from ‘Ocean Facts for Kids’…Anyway! Out now on DVD & Blu-ray and directed by ... Read More
