The story of Once Upon a Time is one of courageous heroes and mysterious fairytales, a mix of the modern world and the realm of stories.

Good Luck Girl! Binbogami ga! DVD review – When fortune becomes misfortune
Dozens of new anime series premiere every year, and it’s easy to get lost in the sheer volume of them.

The Final Frontier: Voice Actor and Sci-Fi Superfan Vic Mignogna at MCM London Comic Con
A veteran of MCM Comic Cons, the lovable Vic Mignogna was able to come back this weekend to say hi to the UK with another panel. The show opened up with a video from one of Vic’s live concerts, where he plays an assortment of anime songs and popular tracks; then he came on stage, and promptly walked off as he decided standing up on the stage and talking down at the audience was a bit too impersonal. Walking through the starry-eyed rows of the...

Ubisoft E3 2014 Press Conference – All About Assassins, Gunfights, and Workouts
In the closing hours of the first day of the annual Electronic Entertainment Expo, gamers were no doubt already feeling that they were at the limit of their hype.

Edge of Tomorrow review – Time Travelling Tom Cruise

Edge of Tomorrow review – Time Travelling Tom Cruise
With 2013’s Oblivion turning out to be underwhelming at the box office and in critical reviews, you might think that Tom Cruise, who starred in a hit with Jack Reacher in 2012, might not have the chops for a science fiction story. Edge of Tomorrow, however, turns that all around.
