Solo: A Blu-ray Review

People hated this movie, but I didn’t, I didn’t hate it. I think the hate was partially a spill over from the previous Star Wars movie. I think if you view this movie just on its own merits, it’s a good movie. It’s an okay movie. Just an okay slash good movie. But with your own Blu-ray copy you get some ext...

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

Based during the Peloponnesian War between Athens and Sparta, you play as either Alexios or Kassandra, a mercenary in possession of their ancestral king’s broken...

A Star is Born

I should start by saying I did not buy into the hype for A Star is Born. Anything that is written (partly at least), directed and starring the same person is sure to be self indulgent but in less than five minutes, my mind was to be completely changed. There is no question that Cooper is a born director wit...

A Day with Dinosaur Polo Club

PMG reviewer Di recently covered the little success of Kiwi-made indie game Mini Metro. She spent many hours staring at transit maps, dreaming of geometric shapes and brainstorming new strategies to solve cities’ commuter problems. After some more hours, Di started wondering about the intriguing logo ...

The Tower of Egbert

Poor Egbert. He’s a tiny homeless sorcerer who dreams of having a lofty tower. No humble single-storey cottages for this little guy. Fortunately, he’s not bothered that, while I’m quite happy to help him, I’m also a person who builds things quite poorly. So poorly in fact that the Le...

Meh

Venom

When director Ruben Fleischer was first attached to Venom and the rumours of an R-Rated, more grown up superhero story (Logan anyone?) were floating around, I was pretty excited. The Zombieland director was potentially a great choice for the film and when Tom Hardy and Michelle Williams were attached as the...

Puella Magi Madoka Magika

Have you ever had someone bake you a cake? Perhaps for your birthday, it’s beautifully decorated, looks delicious and smells lovely. Then suddenly a hand burst out of your delicious baked treat, pulls out your intestines, tosses them against the wall and says, “Look, art!” What’s that I hear you...

Night School

Kevin Hart is an extremely likable guy. The first movie I remember seeing him in was my favourite film from the Scary Movie franchise – Scary Movie 3. Flicking through his IMDB page he has certainly had an interesting career (interesting being the key word – Epic Movie?! You’re better than that ...

Bacon: Enter the Hanger Zone

I’m a vegetarian. So putting bacon on everything is a strange experience for me. And I mean…everything. Cookbooks, inspirational quotes, money, hairdryers, Kevin Bacon…the list goes on. Little indie company Kamibox is responsible for bringing us such a weird and oddly-satisfying experience. Baco...

The Robot Chicken Walking Dead Special

Robot Chicken has had a cult following since it started in 2001 (holy crap 2001?!) and I remember when I first got hold of it on DVD shortly after the turn of the millennium as some friends and I sat around laughing at brilliant stop motion animation bringing toys to life in hilarious sketches. The brainchi...

Zero Sum: Making Math Fun. And Weird.

If you love numbers and bad B-movies, there’s no finer candidate for your game library than Zero Sum. Actually, I take that back. You don’t even have to like numbers. I am a prime example of this. Can’t remember own age? Check. Uses fingers and toes to count stuff? Check. Thinks the number...

Johnny English Strikes Again

I’m going to do things a little bit backwards here, and give you my score out of 10 straight away. For me, Johnny English Strikes Again is absolutely and unequivocally a 5/10! Because I can’t in good conscience lean towards either good or bad on this one. There’s an internal battle going on here, and it’s t...
