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)
Let’s just get this out of the way. Nobody likes reboots. Nobody likes remakes, prequels or re-imaginings. Over the last decade we’ve seen films be pressed through the shiny Hollywood machine, only to tumble out the end capturing absolutely none of the original joy or spark of the source material.

Enjoyable, heart-warming, funny and with the greatest portrayal of Santa to date, the Christmas Chronicles is definitely worth some air time with you loved ones close by.
Directed by Richard Boylan and Written by Boman Modine, Guardsman is a rather glorious, short fan film about, well a guardsman, down on his luck and surrounded by Xenos. Shame it wasn’t longer but good to see good quality, 40k,fan made, live action and Animiated shorts coming out… maybe GW will take the hint and […]
