Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 10 Review: In the Forest of the Night

Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 10 Review: In the Forest of the Night
A great Doctor Who episode can always do with a good mystery, and this week’s is no exception. When you have a seasoned writer like Frank Cottrell Boyce take the reins of writing an episode of Doctor Who, you know you’re in for an interesting tale. In the Forest of the Night is a rather interesting tale that’s spun this week, with a mystery in contemporary London that baffles The Doctor (Peter Capaldi), Clara (Jenna Coleman), and... 

WWE: The Best of Sting DVD and Blu Ray Review

WWE: The Best of Sting DVD and Blu Ray Review
Before the united era of WWE, there wasn’t just one major wrestling company in America. WWE’s biggest rival through the ages was a company that had its roots in the NWA, but soon became a company of its own; WCW. Like any wrestling company, WCW needed a top face for its company, and this DVD/Blu-ray looks at the wrestler many feel was the company man for WCW, a man that has still not wrestled under the Vince McMahon banner… The... 

Robotics;Notes part 2 review

Robotics;Notes part 2 review
It was already made pretty clear from my review of Robotics;Notes part 1 that I was less than impressed with how the series set itself up. Just as a miniature recap to provide some context, I found the story to be a spider web of many different storylines that were hard to keep track of and understand. There were already plenty of unanswered questions and I feared that the plot holes would grow larger and larger. Despite my many disappointments,... 

WWE Battleground 2014 DVD Review

WWE Battleground 2014 DVD Review
2014 is the year of many rising stars in the WWE – Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, Bray Wyatt, Rusev and many more made their big splash this year, and for some, Battleground was the culmination of that. The World Heavyweight Championship was on the line in a fatal, four-way main event: Dean Ambrose finally got his hands on the scummy little Seth Rollins, and we crowned a new Intercontinental Champion, among other things. So, let’s... 

Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 8 Review: Mummy on the Orient Express

Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 8 Review: Mummy on the Orient Express
Agatha Christie is no stranger to the world of Doctor Who, so an episode called “Mummy of the Orient Express” isn’t an entirely new concept, but one that’s always welcome. Unlike the Agatha Christie-herself involved episode “The Unicorn and the Wasp”, it is mainly the title that’s inspired by the writer, alongside an air of mystery and a few tropes of Christie’s writing shining through. It’s pretty... 

Review “Saints and Soldiers: The Void”

Review “Saints and Soldiers: The Void”
When you set about making a great World War II movie you’ve got some big military boots to fill. Depictions of the war can range anywhere from uplifting and action-packed to downright horrific. Saints and Soldiers: The Void seems to aim for the former but doesn’t quite hit the mark. When describing it, the word “almost” tends to come to mind. It’s almost inspiring, the actors are almost good and the story is almost interesting. The... 

Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 7 Review: Kill The Moon

Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 7 Review: Kill The Moon
Doctor Who takes a yet another turn at the terrifying this week with Kill The Moon, the seventh episode in this rather stellar Eighth Season for the most part. As Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor shines, this week’s episode feels a bit more like a Doctor-lite episode, which isn’t a bad thing in the slightest. This is because it means we get more development of Jenna Coleman as companion Clara, who has definitely been in need of more... 

Dracula Untold review

Dracula Untold review
Dracula Untold is a film which takes some elements from Bram Stoker’s Dracula and re-envision’s Dracula’s origin story. The titular character for Stoker’s novel is based on a real life historical figure, Vlad the Impaler, also known as Vlad III, Prince of Wallachia, which is geographically Romania. Vlad is a popular folk hero in Romanian lore, and Stoker’s book adds a mythical element to an already established character,... 

Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 6 Review: The Caretaker

Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 6 Review: The Caretaker
Sometimes The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) doesn’t go into the far reaches of space and time, sometimes he stays in the relative present with his companion (Jenna Coleman as Clara) and together they deal with a much more personal threat to his comrades. The Caretaker is one of those episodes. With Clara constantly having to juggle life with the Doctor and her other life working at Coal Hill school and dating fellow teacher Danny Pink (Samuel Anderson),... 

Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet review

Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet review
Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet: the mecha, sci-fi anime that I didn’t actually need to be so sceptical of. Of course, it came naturally: from previous reviews, you can probably get a sense of my opinion on sci-fi and big robots and the likes. Safe to say it’s not a positive one. However, I was delighted to find that Gargantia had far more to offer than the endless outer space pew-pew battles that I was expecting. What I found instead...
