Bad Words

Friday, 04 September 2015
I recently reviewed Russell Crowe’s directorial debut The Water Diviner and was amused by how much of an ego trip the whole thing was. And it got me thinking about actors directing their own work – I assume it’s a difficult process. Sure, they know what they want for their film better than anyone but there must be a bit of bias for yourself. This was evident in The Water Diviner which I compared to being Russell Crowe: The Movie. But it’s not evident in the brilliant Bad Words, ... Read More

The Salvation

Wednesday, 02 September 2015
It has been said many times, and it is true - it is very difficult to add anything fresh, original or new to the traditional Western genre. It’s a genre known and loved for its clichés and iconography – the stagecoaches, the dusty frontier towns, the horses and the shootouts; you can look at one scene from any Western and know exactly what you’re watching. Back in the 1950s and 60s, you were never far from a new Western film – some of which have become some of the most highly regarded ... Read More

5 Great Games @ PAX Prime

Tuesday, 01 September 2015
Though in terms of size and impact both E3 and the Tokyo Game Show take the biscuit in the gaming industry, the Penny Arcade Expo, also known as PAX Prime, is not an event to be scoffed at. Originating from the creators of the much loved Penny Arcade web-comic that sprung up in 1998, the event is now home to game reveals, trailers and all kinds of cosplay shenanigans. However, like any gaming event out there, we're here to help you cut through the bullshit and give you the info on the games ... Read More

Lenovo K3 Note

Tuesday, 01 September 2015
Lenovo recently launched their brand new phablet the K3 Note, the beefy elder cousin of the A7000. The first “Note” device from Lenovo is a powerhouse of performance and great value for money.Design, Display & Hardware : The K3 Note is a lookalike of the A7000 from Lenovo, so don’t be surprised if you can’t spot the difference between them . It’s design is simplistic with the dimensions of 76.2x152.6x8 mm & weighs 150gms, which is just a tad more than the A7000. The screen ... Read More

The first movie I ever saw in the cinema was Beauty and the Beast, the 1991 Disney classic. I was 6 at the time, and though a lot of memories from way back then have become clouded over time, that first viewing of Beauty and the Beast is forever burnt into my brain. So it goes without saying that I have a great love for Disney. That said, after the period known as the “Disney Renaissance” (1989-1999), there weren't many Disney projects that grabbed me, perhaps apart from Tangled. But this ... Read More

The Water Diviner

Sunday, 30 August 2015
Back in 2012, Russell Crowe announced he would be directing a biopic of cult comedian Bill Hicks – one of my personal heroes. I was very excited at this prospect as I’m sure a lot of you dear readers are. Who doesn’t love Bill Hicks? But 3 years on, we have been given no update on this production. I don’t know if it’s still even happening. So, Mr. Crowe…If you’re not going to make us our Bill Hicks film what have you made us instead? Something just as good, I hope…Directed by ... Read More

Run All Night

Saturday, 29 August 2015
Back in 2008, Liam Neeson gave us a new way to see him. With the words ‘I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills…’, we had a new reason to love him. He had become a bad-ass. Taken was a terrible film but a fantastic vehicle for Liam Neeson to kick the shit out of some nasty bastards and just generally be awesome. But over the following years, this formula ... Read More

Wayward Pines

Friday, 28 August 2015
When I first heard about Wayward Pines, all I heard was the comparisons to Twin Peaks. Twin Peaks is one of my favourite shows of all time, and I was worried that this was just going to be some desperate imitation filled with the same quirky characters and surreal delivery – even the title is similar. After many people made these comments, M. Night Shyamalan (executive producer) said, "I think when it's all said and done, it has nothing to do with Twin Peaks." But later, in January 2015, ...
