Attack on Titan Part 1 TITAN sized Blu-ray review

Attack on Titan Part 1 TITAN sized Blu-ray review
It is one of the most anticipated anime releases of the last few years, where the mere mention of its name can cause a room full of people to stand up, scream and go crazy. I am of course referring to Attack on Titan and thanks to Manga Entertainment, UK fans can now get their hands on it. The synopsis tells us that several hundred years ago humanity was all but exterminated by a race of giant creatures called Titans. The surviving members of the... 

WWE Brothers of Destruction Greatest Matches DVD Review

WWE Brothers of Destruction Greatest Matches DVD Review
The Undertaker and Kane are two of the most iconic wrestlers in the history of the WWE. Half brothers in kayfabe, the two men are both multiple time World Heavyweight Champions, and one could attribute much of their success to the existence of one another, as Kane’s character was created to be a foil to that of the Undertaker himself. Despite all of their rivalries and violent history with each other, the brothers went on to also be a successful... 

Karneval complete series review

Karneval complete series review
The best way to describe Karneval in one phrase would be: The could-have-been masterpiece that completely lost its way. And it’s a damn shame that it went so wrong. Karneval opens with a chance meeting, perhaps some kind of fate, between rogue pickpocket/cat burglar Gareki and chained hostage, Nai. The two stick together in order to escape the explosive and undeniably creepy setting of the first episode and of course, end up staying together for... 

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,... 

Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 2 Review: Into The Dalek

Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 2 Review: Into The Dalek
So we’ve had a week to mull over the brand new Doctor in a brand new series, but what better way to really analyse Peter Capaldi’s Doctor than his first confrontation with the Daleks? Yes, this week we come across the Daleks in the episode Into The Dalek, written by Phil Ford and Steven Moffat, and directed once again by Ben Wheatley. And this is definitely more of what we should hopefully be getting from Doctor Who with Capaldi’s... 

Psycho-Pass complete series review

Psycho-Pass complete series review
In a highly advanced Japan where monitoring criminal activity has become somewhat an obsession, Psycho-Pass displays a fast paced, exciting and often twisted story of cat and dog chasing like no other. In this heavily controlled world, the citizens of Japan are labelled and judged by the Sibyl System based on the colour of their ‘hue’ and ‘Crime Coefficient’. The ‘hue’ is used to determine the mental state of an individual. When compared... 

Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 1 Review: Deep Breath

Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 1 Review: Deep Breath
At last, we get our first proper episode with our new Doctor! It’s been almost a year since we found out Peter Capaldi was to take the reins from the great Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor, and while we’ve had teases and scenes here and there, Deep Breath is the first full story led by Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor. Is it any good? Well, yes! It has a few teething problems, but for the most part, this is a solid first episode for the new Doctor. Directed... 

Robotics;Notes part 1 review

Robotics;Notes part 1 review
I have to begin by getting my main opinion out the way first; the highly anticipated Steins;Gate successor, Robotics;Notes… was a letdown. The opening of the story was nothing short of mediocre. It had me worrying for the first few episodes that I really was in for just another high school ‘save our beloved club!’ anime. And although the plot took a few unexpected paths towards different and admittedly, very unique ideas, it just wasn’t executed... 

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...
