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...

One Piece Movie Collection 1 Review

One Piece Movie Collection 1 Review
Manga and anime have been rapidly gaining popularity in the west with lead titles such as Naruto, Bleach and One Piece. The franchises themselves fall under the Shonen demographic, and at one point were the highest selling manga in Japan. That isn’t necessarily the case anymore, however one strange occurrence is that One Piece had barely been licensed in the United Kingdom, with the box sets only becoming available recently. To overcome that Manga... 

Dragon Ball Season 2 review

Dragon Ball Season 2 review
Welcome to the review of the Dragon Ball anime’s season 2 (episodes 29-57). You can find the review of Season 1 here, which is recommended reading if you’re entirely new to the Dragon Ball franchise as it covers the core characters. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend starting with this season if you’re someone who’s not seen any of the Dragon Ball franchise before, and even if you have the earlier episodes at least will lose some meaning...
