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... 

Graphic Novel review: Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book

Graphic Novel review: Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book
Neil Gaiman is a name that has been associated with high quality tales for many a year now. From The Sandman to American Gods and Coraline, Gaiman is known for his diverse talent through various mediums – short stories, novels and graphic novels to name a few. Influenced along the way by such authors as C.S. Lewis and Lewis Carroll, Gaiman has become one of the most popular names in literature with his unique vision and successes achieved both critically... 

WWE Ladies And Gentlemen, My Name Is Paul Heyman Blu-ray Review

WWE Ladies And Gentlemen, My Name Is Paul Heyman Blu-ray Review
Paul Heyman. A name that means many different things to many different people. To classic wrestling fans, he’s a manager from WCW. To others, he’s a commentator or the father of ECW. Modern audiences will know him best for being the advocate for Brock Lesnar and CM Punk amongst others. There’s no doubt that Heyman’s a guy that has had his fingers in many pies over the last nearly three decades – and I was very surprised... 

Guardians of the Galaxy Review

Guardians of the Galaxy Review
When James Gunn was announced as director of a Marvel movie, some people were confused, some were excited. Having made R-rated flicks like Slither, and Super, as well as working on stuff for Troma, Gunn wasn’t exactly a name one would consider as a potential herald of a slice of the Marvel universe. Then again, Marvel have also employed people like Jon Favreau, Kenneth Branagh, and even Shane Black in the past. (Not forgetting, sadly not to... 

WWE Extreme Rules 2014 Blu-Ray Review

WWE Extreme Rules 2014 Blu-Ray Review
With the Road To Wrestlemania over, WWE once again faced that yearly question of ‘what now?’ So much of the year is spent building up to their biggest spectacular that they often struggle once they’ve reached the peak – in this case Daniel Bryan overcoming all odds to win the WWE World Heavyweight Title and the YES! movement celebrating worldwide. With the shocking result in the Undertaker/Brock Lesnar match and new stars like... 

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Review

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Review
2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes was a film that surprised and blew away many. It was very much in that category of classic laboratory/smart chimp movies from the 1980s and 1990s combined with the foundations of a fresh new take on the Planet of the Apes franchise. It also had some of the best motion capture work in all of cinema, with Andy Serkis surpassing Gollum with his performance as Caesar. Finally, a sequel has rolled around. Dawn of... 

Transformers: Age of Extinction review

Transformers: Age of Extinction review
The tagline for Transformers: Age of Extinction tells us that “The rules have changed.” Yet the formula here remains largely the same, which must mean that the rulebook only has one page. If you’ve seen at least one of director Michael Bay’s Transformers films then you can probably predict how this plays out. The intent is to deliver the most glorious destruction and explosions your eyes will ever see, enhanced by IMAX 3D no less. This involves...
