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)

Vampire: The Masquerade – Walk Among Us

by Peter Ray Allisonon 16/06/2020
Vampire: The Masquerade, the ground-breaking roleplaying game of personal horror, is no stranger to tie-in fiction.  Indeed, the Clan Novel Saga and Clan Brujah trilogy, which chronicled the ongoing conflicts between the Camarilla and the Sabbat, were used to progress the in-game storyline.  However, since 2004, there has been no new fiction, and certainly no […]

Twilight Imperium 4th Edition- Review

by Matt Gearyon 06/03/2020
All in all, TI4 is a great game (though not the cheapest), balanced, not overly complex, quicker than you might think and with so much replayability. If you are the long hall war gaming type then you'll need to go into it understanding that it isn’t really a wargame, despite its look, it’s a game of diplomacy and threat… with the ability to war it out, if you must.

REVIEW : Back to the Future – The Musical

by redshirtjamieon 21/02/2020
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. Every few years a rumour […]

Joker – Review

by Matt Gearyon 13/10/2019
Joker isn’t an action packed, explosion filled, Superhero trope laden caper, replete with cheesy jokes and one liners. No, it’s a dark, gritty, in some ways brutal and disturbing cautionary tale of how society, ignored, abused and left to fester, will retaliate and lay low those who ignored it for years; the avatar of its rage and dissolution manifesting in Arthur Fleck’s Joker.

When washed-up journalist Harry Hendrick wakes one morning with a hangover and a strange symbol tattooed on his neck, he shrugs it off as a bad night out.
