Rocket League

Thursday, 28 July 2016
Rocket League is simply a phenomenon. A game of football with cars that’s actually a spiritual sequel to a PlayStation 3 title called Supersonic Arcrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars. Its premise is simple: a game of 1v1, 2v2, 3v3 or 4v4 in football but instead of being humans, you’re controlling a car in a domed stadium with an oversized ball. What makes it magical though is its execution.Developed by Psyonix and out now on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, Rocket League features three sports: ... Read More

Anomalisa

Wednesday, 27 July 2016
“Each person you speak to has had a day. Some of the days have been good, some bad, but they've all had one. Each person you speak to has had a childhood. Each has a body. Each body has aches. What is it to be human? What is it to ache? What is it to be alive?”When a film carries Charlie Kaufman’s name, you know it’s going to be deep. Having written ‘Being John Malkovich’ and ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’, he’s earned a reputation as a man who can find beauty in the ... Read More

Trumbo

Tuesday, 26 July 2016
Bryan Cranston has proven himself as one of the most versatile actors in the history of film and television. After years of varied small appearances, he had his first big break in the year 2000 with his iconic role as the hapless and adorably weak Hal in Malcolm in the Middle. 2 years later, he won the leading role in a little show called Breaking Bad… In a career that also includes roles in everything from Family Guy to The X-Files, here’s a man who can do everything. With Trumbo, ... Read More

London Has Fallen

Monday, 25 July 2016
Following on from the first film, ‘Olympus Has Fallen’, ‘London Has Fallen’ (directed by Babak Najafi) contains a subject topic that may feel a little close to home considering recent events. After the British Prime Minister appears to die of natural causes, a selection of world leaders all come to England to pay their respects at his funeral in London. However, this particular event has been chosen for a sudden terrorist attack that threatens to take out all of the visiting world ... Read More

Anima: Gate of Memories

Sunday, 24 July 2016
Anima: Gate of Memories reminds me of old Japanese Action Role Playing Games from the PlayStation 2 era. In fact, playing through this game it reminded me of a game I fondly remember called Nier from last generation. It features many of its traits including open areas, similar art, decent music, and even a book as your companion. Unfortunately, the experience of Anima is something I won't recall upon all that fondly despite some enjoyable moments.Developed by The Anima Project and out now for ... Read More

Dad’s Army

Saturday, 23 July 2016
Imagine a world where classic shows like Dad’s Army can be left alone, safe in the knowledge they’ll never be updated or remade. What a beautiful world it would be. But these days, nobody is safe. Rich, greedy film-makin’ bastards are always looking for a way to make a quick buck. In 2016, Dad’s Army fell prey to the film industry machine and got the update it so gravely didn’t need. But you know what? It was nowhere near as bad as it could’ve been.For those few who don’t know the ... Read More

Grimsby

Friday, 22 July 2016
There was a time when Sacha Baron Cohen was a comedic force to be reckoned with. When he unleashed his Kazakh journalist Borat and wannabe-gangster Ali G on the unsuspecting public, the world watched and laughed. It was hilarious watching normal people trying to deal with these quirky characters. But in 2009, things went downhill. Sacha finished his real-world interaction comedies with the awful Brüno, before moving into straight-up comedy films. 2012 brought The Dictator, which we can all ... Read More

Mighty No. 9

Thursday, 21 July 2016
The Mega Man series is probably the most unused but beloved series there is. The Capcom series has been notably  neglected  in the last few years and the creator Keiji Inafune noticed this and decided to launch a Kickstarter to create a similar game and thus Mighty No. 9 was born. However, rather than the game becoming an advocate for refreshing old-fan favourites, Mighty No. 9 might be looked to as the breaking point for the trust between fans and Kickstarter Project creators.Out now ...

Zoolander 2

Wednesday, 20 July 2016
Although it arguably sagged in places, Zoolander was overall a very funny film that served as an excellent example of why Ben Stiller keeps getting handed big-budget comedies again and again. It was almost (but not quite) good enough for us to forgive his friendship with Ricky Gervais. Now available on DVD and blu ray and directed, co-written by and starring Stiller, Zoolander 2 arrives a full 15 years after the first film. Could it possibly be worth the wait?Zoolander has retired from ... Read More
