Dora and the Lost City of Gold

I’m not quite sure what to give Dora and the Lost City of Gold. I feel very comfortable giving this a six, but almost everyone I’ve talked to found it very funny and very quotable. So six and a half it is. I do have to hand it to them, Lost City of Gold was pretty funny. Though I think a few of the jokes are almost funnier looking back. Watching the movie as a whole, it was as if the w...

Another Disney Sequel and False Endings on Wikipedia

Hello and welcome to the Pretty Much Weekly! I don’t know if you noticed, but last week was my birthday. And if you didn’t get me a present, I will happily accept your forgiveness for not delivering last week’s news in film, games and entertainment. Ahah, my apologies. This week, though, we have a sequel officially announced and one speculated, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood once ...

A Hat in Time is well worth your time

I’ve been wanting to play this game since before it came out, but I never got around to buying it. Then Di, my wonderful fellow PMGer, bought it for me for Christmas! And so I binged that bad boy over the next couple of days. Wow, it was a rollercoaster. A Hat in Time is obviously a kid’s game. It looks like a kid’s game, it sounds like a kid’s game, it plays like a kidR...

The Nutcracker and the Family Movie Night

It was the first time in a long while that my aunt had sat down with her family for a movie night. The week had been a bit of a strenuous one, but it was nice to be able to look forward to something. I arrived with The Nutcracker and the Four Realms on bluray to the excited chatter of my cousins and the welcoming hug of my frazzled uncle. It was nice sitting down with everyone as we all prepared o...

Chimparty (PlayLink)

You know when you see a game and it says it’s “suitable for all ages”? Instead of thinking, “yay! that’s for me!” you know that it really means it’s designed for kids? Well, Chimparty is unique in the way that it is actually, genuinely suitable for all ages. It’s amazing. When I first saw the trailer for this, I thought, this is exactly like Frantics...

Incredibles 2

  Di: Before we dive into this much-anticipated (by me, anyway) sequel, I think it’s impossible not to give a brief nod to something that’s become a bit of a Pixar tradition: the animated pre-show short film. Jaz: Ooh, yes! It’s called Bao, like the Chinese pork buns, and it’s probably one of my favourite shorts ever, actually. Saskia: Bao follows the story of a Chinese mother suffering from ...

LocoRoco Remastered

In eye-bleeding colours and unrelenting song that will either have you really annoyed or singing along, LocoRoco Remastered is now on PS4! So what is a “LocoRoco”? It’s a round jelly-like creature that has the ability to roll, jump and split or merge itself. Apparently it also really cares for the planet and that’s why it needs to traverse through over 40 different lands co...
