Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Posted 10:15pm Sunday 27th July 2014

Rating: A I remember the first time I saw Gollum, and knew that there was something special happening. He was different to other CGI creations; there was something far more complex happening in his movements and expressions. Now, of course, we know that special element was the use of Read more...

Wildstar

Posted 5:12pm Sunday 20th July 2014

Rating: A- Heres the little spoken truth about MMORPGs: theyre actually in many ways mediocre games. Take any aspect from a non-MMO game, gameplay, graphics, design, story, and compare it to any MMO and it becomes quickly apparent that nearly every aspect is just a watered down version of a Read more...

Calvary

Posted 5:12pm Sunday 20th July 2014

Rating: A- Sometimes it can be hard to pick the genre of a movie before seeing it. You can be easily misled by the marketing or, as in this case, a cast comprising several prominent comedic actors such as Brendon Gleeson, Chris ODowd and Dylan Moran. The predominantly elderly audience and I Read more...

Sniper Elite 3

Posted 6:52pm Sunday 13th July 2014

Rating: B Im not a sociopath (I swear) but there is something truly satisfying in games about achieving a stunningly executed headshot. Im not sure what exactly it is, perhaps the skill involved in lining it up and timing the shot perfectly, or maybe more disturbingly, its the clear Read more...

Transformers: Age of Extinction

Posted 6:52pm Sunday 13th July 2014

Rating: F Since 2007, the Transformers franchise has gotten progressively more offensive in every way: offensive to your senses, offensive to your sensibilities, and offensive to your intelligence. Transformers: Age of Extinction is the culmination of those cinematic sins; making it one of Read more...

Edge of Tomorrow

Rating: A Edge of Tomorrow is one of those films that people will try and describe to you with 100 different similes, and though the film is like many different things, the truth is that it combines these factors to create a unique and gripping movie. Edge of Tomorrow, based on the Read more...

Wolfenstein: The New Order

Posted 1:08pm Sunday 6th July 2014

Rating: A- It is strange to think that first person shooters (FPS) are barely 20 years old, especially considering how prevalent they have become. Yet it was only in 1992 that ID Software released the very first FPS, Wolfenstein 3D. Since then, many games have made steps to evolve the genre. Read more...

X-Men: Days of future past

Posted 1:08pm Sunday 6th July 2014

Rating: A- Every franchise, regardless of its pedigree, makes a misstep at some point. Undoubtedly, that moment for the X-Men film franchise was 2006s X-Men: The Last Stand. However, unlike every other franchise, X-Men has narrative concepts, such as mutants that can time travel, that allow Read more...

Rating: A- After five minutes of scrolling through Reddit posts, youll be certain that the worlds about to end what with all the doom and gloom that abounds online.

Rio 2

Posted 2:07pm Sunday 25th May 2014

Rating: B- People love animated musicals; why else does Disney practically run the entertainment industry? A great Disney musical is like a grand opera with a huge orchestra and people singing their feelings into the sky. But if Disney musicals are like operas, Rio 2 is like Top 40 pop music.
