You’ll have your Knives Out to get this Bluray

But only because the movie is so good. Knives Out is my second favourite movie of 2019. Second only to the magnificence that was Jojo Rabbit (another glorious film that you should definitely see if you have yet to!) If you want to know what kind of film Knives Out is, the opening scene gives you the most pe...

The Current War and the beauty of watching a well-made film

I’ve always been a Benedict Cumberbatch fan, and ever since we saw him at Wellington Armageddon last year, I’ve taken a bit of a liking to Nicholas Hoult. So yes, I was pretty keen for The Current War. The film opens up to the sultry tones of Benedict Cumberbatch’s cringey American accent. I writhed a bit w...

Sonic the Hedgehog makes a dash for your heart

We all know the dark history of video game movie adaptations. There are only a sparse few that I’ve genuinely enjoyed as a film, most notably Detective Pikachu in recent memory. Fortunately for Sonic the Hedgehog, it too has made that prestigious achievement. Yep. I enjoyed this one. It’s not as...

Jumanji: The Next Level

The first time I watched Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, I was hesitant. “It’s really good!” said Di, but did I believe her? It had Jack Black in it, and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. I mean, I like Karen Gillan, but overall it just looked like a stupid, unfunny movie. Long story ...

Cats

Cats! It’s the film where as soon as the trailer came out everybody said WHY. I wasn’t too weirded out by everybody dancing in CGI fur-suits, but I appeared to be in the minority there. Surely watching a cast of high profile actors pretending to be cats would be … entertaining? Let’s begin...

Cybertruck fails and a price for the PS5?

Hello! Welcome to the Pretty Much Weekly, where I’m going to give you the downlow of the biggest news from last week. Yeah, it sounds so untimely saying it that way, but I only write this article once a week, so yeah. Hopefully I’m bringing something a little new to you. Whose Disney+ accounts a...

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint – Not the Worst

I’m going to be a little controversial and say that I like Ghost Recon: Breakpoint. You’ve probably seen a lot of reviews saying it’s bad. It’s not bad. But it’s not great either. I’ve been really enjoying sneaking around the beautiful world that’s sort of been insp...

A Marvel women movie, riots, and a console gets snazzy new controllers

Hello! It’s the Pretty Much Weekly and I, Jaz, return victorious from a mighty battle against the germs. Special thanks to Di who took up the Weekly helm last week! Looking at the amazing job she did, perhaps I should get sick more often.  But for now, news! The PS5 gets some nice new controllers...

UglyDolls

I didn’t think I was going to like this. I was prepared to endure a movie that was going to shove it’s admittedly good moral down my throat. I wasn’t sure I would be able to stomach it.  But it seems I have a soft spot for musicals and a musical this turned out to be. To be honest, I was s...

Another month another top five most-searched-for-games list! Our friends over at PriceSpy tell us that Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey on the PS4 has claimed the number one spot for August! This might seem a little weird since Odyssey came out October last year, but PriceSpy notes that games tend to become ...
