Low Down

Friday, 12 February 2016
In 2003, A.J. Albany wrote one of the most honest, brave and inspiring memoirs of our times. ‘Low Down: Junk, Jazz, and Other Fairy Tales from Childhood’ was Amy-Jo’s recollection of life with her drug-addicted single father, the great jazz pianist Joe Albany. This raw and gripping portrait of childhood and life was harsh but full of heart, and a book I could not put down – I finished it in one sitting, and then read it again! I’ve also been lucky enough to talk to Amy-Jo online, and ... Read More

Lego Marvel Avengers

Thursday, 11 February 2016
It's been a decade since Lego Star Wars created a formula that has been replicated a couple dozen times, and even though Lego Dimensions changed things up a little bit last year, here we are with Lego Marvel Avengers. It  very much marches to the beat of the previous Lego games and even though it may get repetitive, the charm very much remains to keep the game feeling like light-hearted fun. I mean, it is made for the kids after all.Developed by Traveller’s Tales and out now for Xbox One ... Read More

Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation

Wednesday, 10 February 2016
Out now on Blu-Ray and DVD, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation is the latest instalment of the rather well-known Mission Impossible series, having given us plenty of time to forget about the previous one, Ghost Protocol. It’s all changed a bit now – this time, the IMF has been disbanded and Ethan is on the run from the CIA. His mission, which he chooses to accept completely of his own accord, is to prove the existence of the mysterious terrorist group Syndicate.Right from the very start, the ... Read More

Listen To Me Marlon

Tuesday, 09 February 2016
In 1999, Time Magazine compiled a list – The 100 Most Important People of the Century. This list was rammed full of historical icons, people like Albert Einstein, Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela for example – y’know, legendary and historic figures. But alongside people like these, 3 acting professionals made the list. They were Charlie Chaplin, Marilyn Monroe and Marlon Brando. Everybody knows Chaplin and Monroe, even if they haven’t seen any of their films. But it shocks me to learn ... Read More

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4

Monday, 08 February 2016
If you're not already a fan of the series, you may well be looking at this title with tired eyes and thinking “yet another animé beat 'em up, where do all these bloody things come from?”. But such a dismissive statement is tragically, epically, explosively out of place here. But, er, it is a beat 'em up based on a manga and animé series.Again developed by CyberConnect2 and out now only for PS4, Xbox One and PC, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 (try saying that even once while ...

The Visit

Sunday, 07 February 2016
M. Night Shyamalan has been on a downward spiral for years. After starting his career proper with The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable, things were looking good. Then came Signs and The Village – not offensively bad, but not great either. And then everything went tits up. Films like The Happening, The Last Airbender and After Earth followed. The world was not impressed. But then, hope flickered. Shyamalan directed the first episode of TV’s Wayward Pines and executively produced the series, which ... Read More

Doctor Who: The Husbands of River Song

Saturday, 06 February 2016
Most people out there are probably thankful that Christmas is over and we don’t have to hear about it for a while (though the way Christmas adverts are going, expect to hear about it in June). But I’m going to have to tackle the festive season briefly again as we’re talking about the most recent Doctor Who Christmas special; The Husbands of River Song, out now on DVD.This episode sees the return of River Song and this is already a bad sign because River Song is just awful. She was ... Read More

Resident Evil Origins Collection

Friday, 05 February 2016
How much did Resident Evil 6 suck? OK, maybe it didn't "suck" but it definitely was not what we as fans wanted. Four campaigns sounded amazing but they all tried to feel different using the same janky controls. It was always going to be a disaster. Don't you wish you could go back to the old Resident Evil days? Well, now you can with the Resident Evil Origins Collection *ding*.Developed by Capcom and out now for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, Resident Evil Origins Collection brings both Resident ... Read More

Rainbow Six Siege

Thursday, 04 February 2016
You're the last person left on your team, each one has been taken out in synchronized executions and explosions are happening all around. There are three opponents left as you hold yourself down in the objective room. You're exposed from a hole in the ceiling from above and you could have swore you just heard a charge being set on the other side of the wall right behind you. You reposition yourself and put your back against the wall even though walls don't protect you in this game. Your fears ... Read More

There seems to be a largely nostalgic affectation for hip-hop at the moment. With the brilliant Straight Outta Compton in particular, audiences have been loving the 80s and 90s hip-hop scene. And of course, people have always loved teen films - with a special place in their hearts for those focusing on the ‘nerds’ and ‘geeks’. So Rick Famuyiwa’s Dope, which is out now on DVD, should tick a lot of people’s boxes!Malcolm (Shameik Moore) is a high school student and ‘geek’ obsessed ... Read More
