If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Well, I missed the starting gate on this one, I should have seen this last weekend, but because of some other things that popped up, I saw it tonight. And many, many reviews and comments have been shared of the film already, so it's rather hard to say any more really. Especially when this has already become a…Continue

Oh Lord, this is going to be a difficult review; the fans are going to skin me alive for this. Not because I'm going to be talking trash, but, this was quite a mixed bag of a collection in so many ways. I’ll dive right into it and try to explain it all.
So, the Jak and Daxter series was released on the…Continue

This is a strange little episode... on the front it looks pretty standard in the FIM universe, but it also has a lot of callings to the fans. That isn't an unusual thing for them to do, but this has them in spades. How does the combination work out? Let's take a look.
This week's offering deals with…Continue
First off, a very Happy St. Patricks Day to one and all, I hope you got to enjoy the festivities today and raise a glass (or several) to the Irish. Since I'm heading to a Brony meetup tomorrow, I kept things quiet today and stayed at home. But, the benefit is I can get this review up on time,…Continue
It's a rare thing for me to do a videogame review, but there is a lot to talk about with this particular one, it has been dividing the fans quite a lot since its release. Is it an improvement? Is it being bold? Is it an immeasurable heap of junk? Well, after putting many hours of my time into it I can say... it's a lot from each of them really.
I'll say from the get-go here that these reviews have all been from a personal perspective; some will agree with them, others will question my sanity and being if it angers them enough. The same for the movie reviews, they might not always be right. Why am I saying this now? Well...…Continue
It feels like a real shame to boil these two films down to short reviews, because they deserve so much more, they deserve all the praise I can offer. But two things hold me back - 1) Everyone has heard about them, and I don't…Continue
Yes, the movie every young and aspiring (sort of) teenager has been dreaming of, has finally made it to the big screen. It promised the biggest party ever seen, with all the bells and shot glasses included, and did it deliver? Well, maybe.... you see, despite the fact that it is indeed one kick-ass party, there are some very important things to mention, some of…Continue
The show is back after the week-off and schedule change, and the matter that is now not relevant will not be brought up here. (You know what I'm talking about, time to settle down now lads.) And today, we had a look at standing up for yourself, a matter that quite a few people have difficulty in doing, or in…Continue
Romantic dramas, never the genre that gets you excited, is it? Even for girls, it's more of a "comfort movie" than something to get immersed in for its cinematic qualities; it's a very tricky type of movie to pull off on the whole. And The Vow.... falls right into that group as well.
But, there is a bit to talk about, so I'll give my two…Continue
Okay, so this movie has had many blog reviews already on Spill in the past week, so there's not much new I can say here that hasn't been talked over in detail already. But Goddammit, I need to talk about this pile of garbage to some extent! *deep breath* Alright.... I need to keep level minded on this, but an early warning; this won't be brimming over with praise by any…Continue
Pinkie Pie returns once again for the latest episode, and that's totally fine in my books. Though in a way, this episode has a bit of deeper meaning to it, and a lot more going on than I pre-assumed. In what way exactly? Hopefully I'll be able to discuss that here. (Apologies for the lack of images, it's…Continue
Think of the usual addiction movies you've seen in the past, typically centring on drugs or alcohol. And think about how they all focus on the journey the character takes through the addiction, from beginning to either the resolution, of self-destruction. This movie side-steps from those ideas quite a bit, but is it to a good result or bad?
Our main character is Brandon, played by Michael…Continue

This episode will be remembered for many things, but mostly as the "leaked episode" after it was accidentally place on iTunes during the week before it aired. So, there were plenty of spoilers floating around the Web, but I avoided them on the whole, and cached the…Continue
Another one of the movies to get a 2012 release in Ireland, and with Oscar season upon us, this is one film I've been interested in seeing for quite some time now. So, is it worthy of its praise, or will this be another "Oscar Year" film that's worth the look once? Well, that's what I'm here to find out.
Directed by Alexander Payne and…Continue

There has been a long and steady stream of reviews for this on the Spill blogs already, and after seeing it last night, I understand fully. After all the teasers, anticipation and public stunts, there was a huge buzz around this, and I'm even going to say right here that it lives up to the anticipation absolutely. But before handing down the rating, let's take a look at the…Continue
With the majority of our young generation being supposedly brought up on the likes of the iPad2 and the Kindle, it seems like the right time to make a MLP episode around the forgotten wonder that is... reading a book. And a proper book too, pages and all. Being someone who also has not entered the digital…Continue
Yeah, quite a name for the episode there, isn't it? And to see it is centred around cider as well, though then again, it is a primary income for small rural towns, so it fits in here a treat. But, I'm getting a little ahead of myself here; let me hand down the…Continue

After last week's *ahem* poor movie outing, it was with much intrigue that I went into Steven Soderbergh's latest film. (director of the Oceans series) It had a strong-looking cast and a rather good trailer, so I was expecting a good action flick to sit back to and enjoy. What I got was... sort of that, there are a few more elements in the mix to…Continue

If you are following these reviews, and more importantly, following the new episodes of Friendship is Magic, you will have seen the internet blow up a little from today's latest show. The reasons of which I may go into later, is quite a spoiler, so you might want to check it out before…Continue
