I Believe In Yesterday

I read about the concept for the plot of Yesterday, before it was attached to a director, and knew it was going to be a movie I was going to love. What would you do if you woke up being the only person in the world that remembered The Beatles existed? That is the question faced by Jack Malik (Himesh Patel) ...

Annabelle Comes Home

Writer Gary Dauberman has certainly got some impressive writing credits under his belt. Having penned the screenplay for both It (2017) and the eagerly anticipated It Chapter Two along with all the previous Annabelle films in The Conjuring universe, means he certainly has the experience and, to an extent, p...

Alleys: A Virtual Experience that Might be Better than the Real Thing

If the thought of virtually walking through a dark alley fills you with both excitement and dread, I might just have the game for you. Alleys by solo developer Shi-Chi Chen is an immersive experience that throws you into a large-scale escape room. Come through the theme park-like gates and enter an abandone...

Child’s Play

As the Pretty Much Geeks’ unofficial horror geek, I was delighted to go along to an advanced screening of Child’s Play – a sort of reboot for the modern era of the 80’s black comedic classic (which admittedly I don’t think I had even seen in its entirety). This film had all the requi...

A Captain Marvel To Call Your Own

Captain Marvel, she’s a hero, gonna take girl power up from… zero!? SHE’S GOT POWERS MAGNIFIED AND SHE’S FIGHTING ON MANY PLANETS’ SIDES. Ok, my Captain planet theme song re-purposing didn’t quite work. I’m just amped about Captain Marvel. But I do kinda hope I̵...

Black Spot

Black Spot, I thought, is an unusual name for a TV show, but in the past I have bought vinyl (records, you know :P) based purely on the album artwork, and stumbled across some real stunners (Crusader, by English band Saxon, comes to mind). Yeah, call me shallow. Anyway, when I saw the name, and the associat...

Toy Story 4

When Toy Story 3 was announced, I thought “Oh no. They’re going to ruin the series! Why are they making another one?!” But I walked out of that film happily proven wrong. When they announced Toy Story 4, I thought “Okay, I know I was wrong last time… but this time they actually can’t! Toy Story 3 wrapped th...

MIB: International

It’s hard to believe it’s been over 20 years since Men In Black was first released in 1997. I remember seeing it at the movies with my Daddy and enjoying the mix of humour, sci-fi, alien battles and of course the brilliant mix of Will Smith (back when he was cool) alongside the dry performance of Tommy Lee ...

E3 2019: Di’s Arbitrary Indie Awards

E3 is often about the pomp and circumstance of some of the biggest and most hyped games to come. But if you’re a hipster-gamer like me, read on, dear one. Based on Kinda Funny Games’ 2019 E3 indie showcase, I present to you my very own arbitrary awards ceremony for the indie games that caught my...

Ophelia

With a slight contemporary voice, Ophelia still is everything you’d want from a movie set in the Middle Ages. Sword fighting, sumptuous gowns, a touch of madness and non-American accents…what more could you want? Chances are, a whole lot more. And fortunately, Ophelia delivers, and not just in b...

Dark Crimes

In my late teens I was introduced to one of Jim Carrey’s first movies – Copper Mountain. This one hour long nightmare of a comedy/music film is a complete disaster and is one of those “so bad it’s good” movies we used to watch and quote over a few beers. Think The Room but without the cult succe...

The Gardens Between

It always makes me happy when you crack open a new game and the first thing you see is, “Best with headphones.” What it tells me is that the experience I’m about to have comes from people who love their product enough to bring you the finer details. And that is precisely how I would descri...
