Dune is visually stunning, musically evocative and narratively well-paced

Free Guy – Review

by Matt Gearyon 13/08/2021
Free Guy is a wonderful film, straight up heartwarming, laugh out loud funny, intense in part and adorably cute.

Jungle Cruise – Review

by Matt Gearyon 01/08/2021
A film based on a Disney land ride….that has to be a first! And it very much plays up to the “theme ride” feel, at least initially, with a point at the start of the movie where the Rock’s character, Frank, captaining a battered, run-down, riverboat, takes tourists on a cruise through his very own […]

The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard

by Matt Gearyon 04/07/2021
The hitman’s wife’s bodyguard is action-packed star studded and completely bombastic buuuut seems to be either trying too hard or conversely not trying at all and I’m not sure which one. It’s not unenjoyable to be fair, with classic Ryan Reynolds moments throughout but it’s not a film you’ll go to watch again any time […]

Mortal Kombat 2021 – Review

by Matt Gearyon 24/04/2021
Video game films are generally pretty hit and miss and in some cases just downright bad. A lot of the time the source material is used liberally and the more fantastical stuff is just ignored, or in the case of Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, so over the top that it’s badly comical. Not the case in the new Mortal Kombat, it’s true to the games, fantastical in part but grounded and it’s a bloody romp ( literally)

Axis & Allies: Zombies – Review

by Matt Gearyon 30/12/2020
What was a pretty unchanged game over 4 decades has now, ironically, been given a new lease of life with the addition of Zombies. A 3rd dimension that really creates a sense of tension and uncertainty within a gain that already is quite tense at times.

I’m a new DM and I Ran a False Hydra; you should too

by Matt Gearyon 26/07/2020
First up, if you have read the title of this, are a D&D player and have no idea what a False Hydra is… then great! Stop now, don’t google it and go and ask your DM to run one. If he/ she doesn’t know, then have them look it up; it’s a lot of fun, […]

RAW, RAI and rule abuse in Warhammer 40k; lets make a change

by Matt Gearyon 10/07/2020
I have been playing 40k since the days of the original Rogue Trader book in all it’s strange and weird glory. I took a small break in between 3rd and 5th editions, but within my time in the game, I never played competitively until 8th edition. Why? Well It seemed a bit more streamlined, and […]

We’re back! just over a year and a half and we’re back in the land of Podcasts. Matt, Josh, Jon Jo, Mark, Dan and Pete talk isolation, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot and try not to get into an argument about Star Wars.. Again.

R.I.P. HANI FEARON

by Matt Gearyon 26/04/2020
Yesterday, 25/04/2020, Geek Pride lost one of it’s Editors, to Cancer. Her name was Hani Fearon and she was only 30. Hani was one of the original group who helped start Geek Pride and despite the tumult inherent in sites like ours, she was always there, always helping, always positive and every time I saw […]
