WWE OMG! Volume 2 – The Top 50 Incidents In WCW History DVD review

WWE OMG! Volume 2 – The Top 50 Incidents In WCW History DVD review
While many fans long for the days of the Monday Night Wars where we had two rival companies fighting for top dog status in the wrestling industry, it is a treat for long term wrestling aficionados to be able to view compilations of ECW, WCW and other companies released under the WWE banner. There’s a huge amount of rich history going back through names such as Ric Flair, Sting, Lex Luger and all the biggest names in the industry over the years,... 

WWE Payback 2014 Blu-ray Review

WWE Payback 2014 Blu-ray Review
June PPVs for WWE are typically a mishmash of finishing feuds and planting the seeds for bigger ones building up to Summerslam, one of the original ‘big four’ PPVs. Ones like Payback can be ‘sleeper’ PPVs that deliver far better than expected, and actually have the benefit of low expectations going in. With The Shield still staying strong and Evolution not giving up after their loss at Extreme Rules, it was inevitable that...

Neil Gaiman is a name that has been associated with high quality tales for many a year now. From The Sandman to American Gods and Coraline, Gaiman is known for his diverse talent through various mediums – short stories, novels and graphic novels to name a few. Influenced along the way by such authors as C.S. Lewis and Lewis Carroll, Gaiman has become one of the most popular names in literature with his unique vision and successes achieved both critically... 

WWE Ladies And Gentlemen, My Name Is Paul Heyman Blu-ray Review

WWE Ladies And Gentlemen, My Name Is Paul Heyman Blu-ray Review
Paul Heyman. A name that means many different things to many different people. To classic wrestling fans, he’s a manager from WCW. To others, he’s a commentator or the father of ECW. Modern audiences will know him best for being the advocate for Brock Lesnar and CM Punk amongst others. There’s no doubt that Heyman’s a guy that has had his fingers in many pies over the last nearly three decades – and I was very surprised...

WWE Extreme Rules 2014 Blu-Ray Review

WWE Extreme Rules 2014 Blu-Ray Review
With the Road To Wrestlemania over, WWE once again faced that yearly question of ‘what now?’ So much of the year is spent building up to their biggest spectacular that they often struggle once they’ve reached the peak – in this case Daniel Bryan overcoming all odds to win the WWE World Heavyweight Title and the YES! movement celebrating worldwide. With the shocking result in the Undertaker/Brock Lesnar match and new stars like...

Hercules preview and Q&A report
Today Brett Ratner (Rush Hour, X:Men The Last Stand) and the cast of Hercules brought their unique vision of an old tale to London to give a world exclusive preview of footage from the movie.

Book review: Flashes by Tim O’Rourke

Book review: Flashes by Tim O’Rourke
Most good books have a cover and/or a blurb that hook you right in from the get-go, and Tim O’Rourke’s Flashes is definitely one of those. A mysterious young girl standing on the train tracks, references to crime and strange goings on, and O’Rourke almost has you gripped before you’ve even opened the book. It’s an opportunity missed by many books, which often copy the style of other well-known releases rather than looking to stand out from... 

WWE – Batista: The Animal Unleashed Blu-ray Review

WWE – Batista: The Animal Unleashed Blu-ray Review
You almost have to feel sorry for Dave Batista. Here’s a guy that made his way up through the company, from working with Reverend D-Von to getting his big break in Evolution alongside some of the biggest names in the industry. From there, Batista became a bona fide main eventer, headlining PPVs and holding both the World Heavyweight and WWE championships numerous times. Yet somewhere along the way, fans fell out of love with ‘The Animal’ and... 

Book review: Shiverton Hall – The Creeper by Emerald Fennell

Book review: Shiverton Hall – The Creeper by Emerald Fennell
Shiverton Hall. It would be all too easy to jump to the lazy comparison of Hogwarts and Harry Potter, but that’s like saying all school-based stories are the same. Grange Hill this isn’t. Here, Emerald Fennell delivers her second slice of fearsome storytelling, as Arthur Bannister returns to Shiverton Hall for a second term. It must be challenging these days to even attempt to write a story such as this because of the huge popularity of the Harry...
