Homefront: The Revolution

Thursday, 26 May 2016
What a weird history the development of Homefront: The Revolution has had. It’s been taken away from the original developers, had the publisher shut down, developers had the rights to the game bought back, then the developer sold it on to a new publisher and here we are with the game that has been troubled for the best of four years. How troubled? Well it’s acknowledged by the developed in a letter written in the credits of the game . . . .yeah. Developed by Dambuster Studios and out now on ... Read More

Room

Wednesday, 25 May 2016
There is a lot of darkness in this world. The stories you can read of kidnapping and captivity should just be horror fiction, but unfortunately, a lot of them are true. In recent years, this has become a popular premise from which to craft a story. The BBC recently aired Thirteen, a dark drama following a girl escaping captivity after thirteen years. And Netflix recently managed to get a comedy out of this dark subject with the brilliant Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. But one film, shot in 2014 and ... Read More

Deadpool

Monday, 23 May 2016
Superhero films are generally pretty good (unless they’re really bad – I’m looking at you, Spiderman 3 and Fantastic Four), but with so many of them around it can be hard to be original. Deadpool throws the usual globe to the side and instead opts for a much more personal plotline, which makes it a refreshing film to see.Starring Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson, the film sees Wade discover he’s got cancer just as everything in his life is going right. He discovers an opportunity to cure it ... Read More

Sunday, 22 May 2016
Hex-based real-time strategy games had its prime in the 90s but with all old things that had it's time in the sun, a comeback is always other cards, leathered and ready. With the fact that there are very few RTS games on this current generation of consoles, it's nice to finally see something come to it, even if it has it's glaring flaws. Out now for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and developed by KING Art Games, Battle Worlds: Kronos is a turn-based strategy game played out on a 2D hexagonal ...

Adult Beginners

Saturday, 21 May 2016
In the world of DVDs and Blu-rays, so many films turn up seemingly out of nowhere. Adult Beginners, directed by Ross Katz, is one of these films. Out now on DVD and featuring a pretty decent cast – Rose Byrne and Vinyl’s Bobby Cannavale, for example – the film feels like one I should’ve heard of. But I had no idea what it was, where it came from, what it was about…It just turned up one day. Clueless, I gave it a go. Adult Beginners tells a familiar and basic story. After his ... Read More

Grandma

Friday, 20 May 2016
Who doesn’t love an acting comeback? Stars from the old days who vanish from the limelight for years, only to return in a blaze of glory with one of their finest performances. Lily Tomlin’s last leading film role was in 1988, starring alongside Bette Midler in Big Business. In recent years, she’s never been too far away, taking many small roles in films and bigger roles on TV such as a titular role in Netflix’s Grace & Frankie. But now, 27 years since her last, she’s back to take ... Read More

The Hateful Eight

Wednesday, 18 May 2016
I’ve always loved Tarantino’s films growing up – Reservoir Dogs was one of the very first 18-rated movies I ever watched, and today it’s still one of my favourites. Pulp Fiction is also incredibly high up there, as again it had a massive impact on how I view film, and the sorts of films I enjoy watching today.It’s immediately clear to me that The Hateful Eight is one of Tarantino’s – something a lot of other directors don’t quite have with their own films. Set as a Western, we ... Read More

Dickensian

Tuesday, 17 May 2016
If you’re one of the troublingly few people who watched Dickensian during its run on BBC One over the last couple of months, you’ll know how difficult a task it was. And if you’re one of the many who didn’t, then you may not have had much choice in that matter. Why? Because Dickensian was thrown around the schedule by the BBC with such disrespect and lack of care that it seems like they wanted it to fail. Out now on DVD, is there any reason why this could be? Or are the BBC just a bunch ... Read More
