If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Time to do something a little different for this blog entry, and to take a look at a recently released PSN title. This was offered for free to Playstation Plus subscribers as part of the "Instant Game Collection" and is.... strange to say the least.
In essence, it is a cross-screen space shooter combined with a…Continue

Once again, it's time for me to delve into the week's newest home releases, all three of which I missed out on seeing in the cinema. And wow... this blog post's films are pretty special. You probably heard them discussed very well on this week's "Remote Viewing", so you will know already what I have to say. But nonetheless, I'll give my viewpoints on the matter, despite them most likely being a bit more... "simplified".…Continue
It's been a long time since I've covered some new home releases, and the freshness of these ones is debatable. Add to that how wildly different they are from each other, and this should be a rather interesting entry. I can tell you right now that one of these just might sneak into my Top Ten list for 2012... only time will tell on that front, so for now, let's start…Continue

Welcome to the latest edition of my random travels through the latest home releases. And if the title to this blog entry doesn't make you scream and run for cover, then you must have a ceramic gut for bad movies that I don't. And to which, I salute you, ladies and gents. In the red corner, we have one of the biggest financial flops in modern cinematic history,…Continue
Seems like it simply wouldn't be a summer without either a Disney or Pixar movie, and with the two companies melded together now that's at least one thing you can bet on. However, despite the immense success of "The Avengers" the two studios have been under a transition process as of late. Between less-than-warm critical responses and financial difficulties, Pixar…Continue

Time for another blast through some recent home releases, and these ones have been put off for about a week or so due to other articles that needed preference. Today's entry will be a rather short one, but maybe for the third movie I'll provide more in-depth to the review.
Let us start with Safe House, starring Ryan Reynolds as a Government member…Continue

And so we movie into 2012's summer season of animated titles, which at many times can be a bit of a mixed bag to say the least. Today I made the decision to check out The Lorax, and although it wasn't as mortifying as "Happy Feet Two", this certainly wasn't what I was hoping for at all. Let's take a look.
So as you probably know, this is…Continue

Before I begin my review for this hotly anticipated movie, it feels only necessary to first send my deepest sympathies to the families, and survivors of the horrific shooting at a theatre in Aurora. It was not what anyone would wish to be connected to the movie, and is a tragedy that should never have happened. Despite the great loss the level of…Continue

This is a rather late review, due to other events and a dollop of laziness; I meant to post this review over a week ago. But, with the weekend as it is, and audiences focussing heavily on all things related to Batman, it seems a good time to post it up. And besides that, this is a LEGO game that is genuinely worth taking a look at, so let's start things…Continue

It is time to take a look at a movie that got released for one week in theatres during Spring, which may have been down to poor sales or just that it was a busy schedule. Either way, I didn't see it then, so I took a look at the Blu Ray this afternoon to see where I'll stand on Andrew Stanton's first live action piece. After the...err, feedback…Continue
It feels like it has been longer than it’s actually been since my last movie review, it's good to have a new film to talk about this weekend. And what bigger current release is there to talk through than Spiderman? It feels like despite everyone's opinions on the trilogy, we all have a certain fondness for this superhero, I think he's one of the most…Continue

It has been the fevered-talk of the Internet for the past month, and the latest Suda51 release has certainly provided quite a reaction. Then again, how often does a zombie Hach n' Slash, and borderline-sexy cheerleader themes ever get collided together? The result however is well worth a talk through, and should help me try and make sense for you of what this game is doing.…Continue

So here we are, the final chapter in the opening set of episodes to what has been an exceedingly great series so far. And with so many storylines built up, the team had a big task on their hands to deliver in this double-feature finale. And I am happy to report that they have not only done so, but surpassed even their own expectations. Let's first have a quick look at how these two…Continue
Well, I had hoped that the series had moved on from its previous issues, but it looks like the prologue to next week's two-part season finale went there once again. And although the episode didn't pivot about it, it did.... turn it into a rather mixed bag to be honest. This may be a more conflicted review than usual, but let's see if I can make…Continue
The series continues to progress, the past continues to merge into the present situations, and Sunday afternoons are now one of the highlights of the week for me. Yes indeed, it's worth repeating each review just how great "The Legend of Korra" has turned out to be, and with this episode bringing some very interesting resolutions to light, it…Continue
Four movies reviewed!
Last weekend saw a lot of new releases finally hit the shelves here in Ireland, and so it was the perfect conditions for three days of movies, along with my trip to see Prometheus. (you can find my full review for it…Continue

This has me slightly anxious in writing this. Not only because it is one of the most hotly anticipated films of the year, but also because there is a massive expectation from the fanbase. So, even as I write this, I have not yet decided my rating, but I will try to form a conclusive review, and also one that will give a…Continue
Korra returns after its... unusual week off from the TV screens. (seriously, for that holiday??) But in that time, I took the chance to re-watch the entire Legend of Aang show, hoping that it'll keep me up to track with the continuity and, understand the episodes for reviewing better. Time to test the metal of the theory now.
In the aftermath…Continue
For some, the summer blockbuster season didn't technically begin with The Avengers, it began with this film. There was certainly a lot of expectation for it, and a little hope that it would blot out the memory of the second instalment. However, there were many points being brought up too that threatened to…Continue
