Star Fox Zero

Thursday, 05 May 2016
To say that opinions differ on this game is like saying that Manchester City fans don’t usually support Manchester United. The point of contention is the motion controls, which led a blogger at one well-known games site to throw his toys out of the proverbial pram and not only refuse to finish the game (which first time round can take all of four hours), but to even write a review. Well, not only did I manage to finish the game, I even managed to rather enjoy it.Developed by Nintendo and ... Read More

The Survivalist

Wednesday, 04 May 2016
The Survivalist is both written and directed by Stephen Fingleton and, according to IMDb, is his first feature-length film since 2006. In a post-apocalyptic time, a man who has lived on a small, self-created farm for 7 years suddenly finds his whole existence threatened when two women, a mother and a daughter, ask him for food and shelter. With low levels of trust all round, the world he lives in becomes even more tense.I’ll start by saying this is a simple film. It’s about as far away from ... Read More

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2

Tuesday, 03 May 2016
After four years, four films, and nearly three billion dollars in box office sales, The Hunger Games – the clear victor in the young-adult movie franchise arena – has finally hung up its bow and arrow and emerged, blinking, into the world of home video. But how does The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 stack up against the rest of the series, and is it really the big, satisfying send-off we expected?Well… yes. Mostly.The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2, out now on Blu-ray and DVD (and ... Read More

Monday, 02 May 2016
The Night Before, out now on Blu-Ray and DVD and directed by Jonathan Levine (50/50, Warm Bodies) is a festive-themed comedy about three friends going out for the last time on Christmas Eve together. Ten years before, Ethan (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) loses both his parents in a car crash, and his two best friends, Isaac (Seth Rogen) and Chris (Anthony Mackie), vow to be his family from then on. Fast forward to the present day, and each one is struggling with their own issues, which have a big ... Read More

Kill Your Friends

Sunday, 01 May 2016
Nicholas Hoult is one of those actors who is neither mind-blowingly good nor particularly bad. This isn’t his fault, he just hasn’t been given a role in which he can showcase any major talent he may have. For the past 15 years, he’s appeared in a wide range of small roles from the young Marcus in About a Boy to the completely deranged Nux in Mad Max: Fury Road. But he’s never been given the opportunity to show us his acting chops, and he has never really been the primary pull factor to ... Read More

Silicon Valley: Season 2

Saturday, 30 April 2016
When Mike Judge’s Silicon Valley started in 2014, I had no interest in it. I’ve never been much of a ‘techie’, and something about it just didn’t grab me – maybe it was the technology theme, maybe it was the cast, or maybe I was just too busy with other things at the time. In any case, it went right past me. But late last year, I decided to stop judging it by its cover and give it a go. A few days later, I had binged the entire first two seasons and was desperate for the sweet fix ... Read More

Lichdom: Battlemage

Friday, 29 April 2016
Lichdom: Battlemage is a mix-up of a few different aspects from a few genres coupled with beautiful visuals and effects to create a compelling experience. While things never change all that much, the core gameplay is so enjoyable that it pushes you through when things may get a little repetitive.Out on May 6th for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and developed by Xaviant, Lichdom: Battlemage feels like something that came from a team of people who played and enjoyed The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and ...

Ratchet and Clank

Thursday, 28 April 2016
Ratchet and Clank is the game based on the movie that’s based on the 2003 PlayStation 2 video game. While it may bring back nightmares of the Street Fighter The Movie game, Ratchet and Clank on PlayStation 4 is honestly one of the most pleasant and enjoyable games I’ve played in a long time. Out now for PlayStation 4, developer Insomniac Games have proven once again that they can create beautiful looking worlds. This comes at a cost of the frame rate being halved to 30 but honestly it ... Read More

Time Out Of Mind

Wednesday, 27 April 2016
After reminding us all he exists last year with a rather confused performance in the underwhelming Marigold Hotel sequel, Richard Gere has had something of a comeback this year. And with this comeback, he brought us two of his finest performances yet. And boy, did we have to wait for them. We had the criminally underrated The Benefactor which began shooting at the end of 2013, and this – Time Out Of Mind – which shot through 2014. Both films only reached us in the UK this year. Out now ... Read More

Tuesday, 26 April 2016
Time to separate the Apples from the Oranges (Android, duh!). Apple is back with a new 4” phone after ages which Steve Jobs always wanted to stick to. Let’s see if this new little baby in the world of large screen phones survives the competition!Design, Display & Hardware Pull the phone out of the box and you won’t be able to identify it from the 2013 iPhone 5S, thanks to the missing antenna lines and similar design language to the 5S.On the left it has the iconic mute and volume ...
