WWE Tables, Ladders, Chairs…and Stairs 2014 Blu-ray & DVD review

WWE Tables, Ladders, Chairs…and Stairs 2014 Blu-ray & DVD review
TLC is still a relatively young pay-per-view event, but it has solidified its place as one of the ones to watch every year for the dangerous array of weapons that it brings to the table. It’s also played host to some great matches, such as the merging of the two world titles into the WWE World Heavyweight championship, and CM Punk defending the belt against the Miz and Del Rio in a TLC match. It’s the kind of night that gets the wrestler’s blood... 

The Tale of The Princess Kaguya review

The Tale of The Princess Kaguya review
“What a bore,” says Princess Kaguya after being told by her adoptive father that she cannot invite any of her friends from their village to a banquet. He also scolds her for spending time in the kitchen with her adoptive mother. It’s a strangely bittersweet moment where we see that the life of a princess isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Directed by Studio Ghibli co-founder Isao Takahata and co-written by Riko Sakaguchi, The Tale of The... 

Good Luck Girl! Binbogami ga! DVD review – When fortune becomes misfortune

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. Plenty of shows get swept away with the flow and don’t get the kind of attention they deserve, ending up as those hidden gems you come across only so often. Good Luck Girl! is one of those gems. Self-centred schoolgirl Ichiko Sakura has everything good going for her: looks, popularity, money, and literally anything else she might ever... 

Ben-To Complete Series Collection review

Ben-To Complete Series Collection review
No matter where I begin, this is going to sound ridiculous. So here goes nothing. Ben-To is an anime that can’t be expanded on much further than the title itself. It’s an anime about bento. It’s an anime about lunch. That’s literally it. But for a premise so stupidly simple, it was a thoroughly entertaining watch. The series starts with our protagonist, Yo Sato, innocently minding his own business as he enters a supermarket with the nonchalant... 

The Road Is Jericho: Epic Stories and Rare Matches From Y2J

The Road Is Jericho: Epic Stories and Rare Matches From Y2J
Y2J fans rejoice: the ‘Highlight’ is back with an all new DVD/Blu-ray, The Road Is Jericho: Epic Stories and Rare Matches From Y2J,  set for release on March 16th. This release is a little different from the classic “where they grew up, how they broke into the business and where they are now” documentary-style release the WWE usually put out, and that’s a good thing. In The Road is Jericho, we join Y2J in his limo on route to a... 

Chappie (2015) Review

Chappie (2015) Review
Neill Blomkamp first hit the big screen after a bunch of interesting short films with District 9 – a science-fiction film that had a much smaller scope in a location that wasn’t the United States for a change, yet could still deliver wonderful special effects and impactful action. He followed that groundbreaking film with Elysium, a general disappointment of a flick despite some stellar trailers. Now he brings us this: Chappie. In what... 

WWE Survivor Series 2014 Blu-Ray and DVD Review

WWE Survivor Series 2014 Blu-Ray and DVD Review
WWE‘s annual Survivor Series pay-per-view has been one of the biggest events on the professional wrestling calendar ever since its inception in 1987, and 2014 was no exception. The Authority had been ruling with an iron fist over the land of World Wrestling Entertainment, and their leadership was put on the line in a massive 5 on 5 elimination tag team match in the main event. We also got to see the Tag Team Championships and Diva’s Championship... 

Broadchurch Series 2 episode 8 review

Broadchurch Series 2 episode 8 review
WARNING: POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD. The finale of the second series of Broadchurch has finally arrived. After eight weeks, everything comes to an end. While the series 1 finale of Broadchurch was tense, emotional and just all around brilliant, sadly, this finale is not. The episode starts immediately where episode 7 left off. Joe Miller’s (Matthew Gravelle) verdict has been reached and in a shocking twist (and a rather bad night for the British... 

Broadchurch Series 2 episode 7 review

Broadchurch Series 2 episode 7 review
WARNING: POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD The penultimate episode of Broadchurch series 2 is upon us and while it isn’t as strong as its predecessor in series 1, this one is still pretty good. “It never ends well, does it?” asks Claire (Eve Myles) during a flashback which reveals that she almost certainly slept with Alec Hardy (David Tennant). This was a very powerful opening line which could very well be foreshadowing the finale, which... 

One Piece Music Symphony at Cadogan Hall Review

One Piece Music Symphony at Cadogan Hall Review
With a franchise which has amassed over 680 anime episodes, 775 manga chapters and 12 films, One Piece has clearly cemented its place in the anime hall of fame, and shows no signs of slowing down. Whilst it’s taken a while for One Piece content to fully get distributed within the United Kingdom, 2012 saw the release of the Pirate Warriors video game franchise, and in 2013 we began receiving licensed boxsets. However, something special came to...
