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‘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.

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... 

Broadchurch Series 2 episode 6 review

Broadchurch Series 2 episode 6 review
The second series of Broadchurch is nearing its end and while last week’s episode was a strong comeback for the series, unfortunately episode six is not as strong. The episode begins with Tom Miller (Adam Wilson) being called to the witness box to give evidence to help defend his father Joe Miller (Matthew Gravelle) where he predictably reveals his secret meetings with Mark Latimer (Andrew Buchan) to the court. For once, this trial scene and...

WWE’s RAW and Smackdown shows have always been the driving force for WWE storylines and the front end of the day-to-day happenings of what goes on in the juggernaut wrestling company. 2014 was absolutely no different.

WWE: Live In The UK – November 2014 DVD Review
To anyone who’s never seen or had the fortune of being at an actual WWE live show, let me tell you, it’s something else. Especially in the UK where WWE live shows are always something special.

You get liquid gold. This 2 disc DVD set is an archive... 

Broadchurch Series 2 episode 5 review

Broadchurch Series 2 episode 5 review
Episode five of Broadchurch has arrived and there is only one word to describe the episode this week: Strong. This week, Alec Hardy (David Tennant) and Ellie Miller (Olivia Coleman) are back in the small town and Ellie finally gets her son Tom (Adam Wilson) to meet with her, trying to patch things up with him. It’s an emotionally powerful scene and Olivia Coleman once again delivers an outstanding performance. The series may have had its weak... 

Blood Lad review

Blood Lad review
In the form of a comedy from the underworld, Blood Lad was a well written concoction made up of all the ingredients needed to create an enjoyable seinen anime. With themes of supernatural action throughout, Blood Lad is another great example of how anime can turn the stereotypes of ‘scary’ demons and underworld creatures on their heads. Just like how Black Butler made demons sexy and Death Note made Shinigami lovable, Blood Lad made the creatures...
