Goodies galore in Japan Crate’s latest box

Goodies galore in Japan Crate’s latest box
It may be a given, but the MCM Buzz team are pretty partial to some of the weirdest and most wonderful food from around the world. We were recently sent the August edition of Japan Crate and was surprised to see the amount of sweets and geeky products within the adorable and cleverly designed ‘Premium’ box. This is a Japanese candy subscription box that comes in three different sizes and prices. There is the ‘Mini’ box for... 

Fantastic Four REVIEW

Fantastic Four REVIEW
Four is not the magic number when it comes to Marvel movies Fantastic Four Director: Josh Trank • 12A • Starring: Michael B Jordan, Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell After Roger Corman’s infamous tax-dodging cheapie version of the Fantastic Four and Tim Story’s brace of cheery but hollow Fantastic Four sit-coms surely it was going to be fourth time lucky for Marvel’s first family? Sadly any hopes that this time round things would improve seep... 

Humans Season 1 Review

Humans Season 1 Review
  If John Wyndham were alive today, he’d probably be scripting stuff like Humans. Channel 4’s synth-filled co-production with AMC feels so much the product of a singularly British form of sci-fi it’s somewhat surprising to recall that it’s actually based on a Swedish series called Real Humans. Admittedly its glacial pace and love of longueurs does call to mind the current crop of in-vogue Scandinavian crime shows but the plucky middle-class,... 

Game Of Thrones: Get Into The Books App REVIEW

Game Of Thrones: Get Into The Books App REVIEW
A Song Of Ice And Fire publisher HarperVoyager has released a new free app designed to get Game Of Thrones TV fans reading the books. So does this non-readers’ digest draw you in? Games Of Thrones is at an interesting point in its real-world history: TV fans who’ve never read the books have caught up with the readers who have read as much as George RR Martin has published so far. So Ice And Fire readers can no longer act all smug because they... 

Asian generalisation and stereotyping – Hello, I Love You book review

Asian generalisation and stereotyping – Hello, I Love You book review
Warning, the following review does contain some spoilers. When I first found out that a K-pop and Korean drama fan had written a book based in South Korea, my inner fangirl went wild. Finally, someone has written the love story most overseas fans could relate to, in terms of dreams of course. Hello, I Love You is marketed as a “Fresh new voice within the young adult market. Featuring an opposites attract love story and a Korean K-pop superstar... 

Bleach Series 16 Part 1 DVD review

Bleach Series 16 Part 1 DVD review
A short time ago we reviewed Bleach Series 15 part 2 and said that the next release was imminent. We weren’t kidding. Just a few scant weeks later the next DVD dropped through the letterbox at MCM Buzz towers. Eager to find out what awaits our spiky orange haired hero now that he faces the daunting prospect of life without his Soul Reaper powers, we sat down and waded through the three discs and the 12 episodes found therein. This set marks... 

Dear White People review

Dear White People review
“Mass media from Fox News to reality TV on VH-1 makes it clear what white people think of us,” says Sam (Tessa Thompson), when asked on the radio show she hosts at Winchester University how she would feel if someone started ‘Dear Black People’. Dear White People is writer/director Justin Simien’s debut feature film, a biting satirical comedy that deals with race issues in contemporary America. Attracting controversy upon its release in... 

RWBY Volume 1 Blu-ray review

RWBY Volume 1 Blu-ray review
Rooster Teeth are known for their Halo animations Red Vs Blue and became a gamers go-to company for gameplays and funny skits. Back in 2013 the much loved and well known Monty Oum – creator of the classic Final Fantasy and Dead or Alive crossover series, Dead Fantasy – created a new series titled RWBY. It hit the animation scene with such force and created a whole new genre of anime to come from America. The story follows a young girl by... 

Batman: Arkham Knight Review

Batman: Arkham Knight Review
Rocksteady Studios’ final outing in the Arkhamverse is packed with bombastic set-pieces, its own brand of bone-crunching (and now tyre-screeching) combat and a tale worthy of the best Batman comics, all set in the most stunningly realised Gotham City that’s ever existed on page or screen. The game itself looks gorgeous, with cutscenes switching seamlessly into the beautiful, dark world Rocksteady have brought to life. The attention to...
