The Raid 2: Berandal review

The Raid 2: Berandal review
When The Raid was unleashed into an unsuspecting world in 2011, few suspected that an Indonesian martial arts action thriller directed by a relatively unknown Welshman named Gareth Evans would create such an impact on the genre. The hyper kinetic choreography, ingenious and stunning cinematography along with the naturally fluid Silat fighting style helped create an instant classic. It’s star, Iko Uwais, who despite being relatively new to acting,... 

Akira Casting News! Kaneda Comes To Life!

Akira Casting News! Kaneda Comes To Life!
Akira, the 1988 classic cyberpunk anime epic directed by Katsuhiro Otomo from his own manga series is one of those properties which many would argue doesn’t need to be remade. However much the idea of a live action remake may repel fans initially, the prospect of seeing Neo Tokyo come to life is intriguing. After years of development and rumours, the budget has been set (a surprisingly low $90 million) and casting has finally begun. The big...

Hands On: Luigi’s Mansion 2!
After playing the demo of Luigi’s Mansion 2 on the Nintendo Unleashed stand at MCM Expo this October, it is clear that with all the buzz around Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D Land onNintendo’s 3DS, we may be overlooking a title that in a lot of ways was more impressive and effective in the short time the demo lasted than its more popular cousins. Of course, this will come as no surprise to anyone who played the original Luigi’s...

Hands On: Mario Kart 7 3DS!

Hands On: Mario Kart 7 3DS!
We’re speeding through the forest in our customised Kart. Sunlight streams through the trees in shards and everything is beautiful and vivid. We come across a river. We plunge underwater. This could spell disaster but have no fear; like a James Bond car created by Dick Dastardly we sprout a propeller which keeps us going underwater. We drift past giant clam shells and we chance a coin from one of their mouths, narrowly avoiding its downwards...

‘The Walking Dead’ Given Life For Third Season!

Since the initial ten-part series was aired last year, the show has amassed a huge fanbase with a lot of those viewers being...
