3 Reasons You Should See Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse

You might have already seen it, but Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse officially comes to cinemas January 3rd! And if you haven’t already seen it, well, you better get your act together and go ASAP. Ben and Ashton have three flippin’ good reasons why!

Ben and Ashton review The Real Housewives of Orange County and Atlanta

It’s 2006. The world is reeling from the news that Pluto is no longer a planet; teens everywhere are finally ‘Breaking Free’ from social expectations thanks to Troy and Gabriella’s burgeoning romance; and a media franchise is about to launch that will become a sprawling epic, lasting over 12 years and spawning eight U.S. spin-offs and another 10 internationally from New Zealand to Hungary. The Rea...

Atomic Blonde

I never thought I would enjoy a movie that’s essentially about a woman beating a whole bunch of men to death quite so much. Set in Berlin in 1989, Atomic Blonde is an action thriller that proves a woman can quite deftly step into James Bond’s shoes. There’s big 80’s hits from Queen, Depeche Mode and Goldfinger, and some fantastically long action scenes. If that all sounds good then Atomic Blonde i...

Review: Detention

I’m someone who likes to trick myself into thinking I can handle, even enjoy, the horror genre. So when the opportunity to review Detention popped up I was all like ‘pfft yea of course I can handle it LOL’. After all, it’s basically a point and click side-scrolling game  with 0% combat and I played a million of those in the 90s.  I think I managed about ten minutes on my ow...

The Shallows

When medical student Nancy Adams (Blake Lively) seeks solace on a secluded beach in Mexico following the death of her mother, she is unaware that she’ll soon be fighting for her life against a menacing great white shark with a vicious grudge against humanity. The Shallows is a tense survival thriller from director Jaume Collet-Serra (House of Wax, Orphan). It’s a short movie, with a running time o...

Ip Man Trilogy unboxing & Review

Kimleng takes us through the features of the Ip Man trilogy box set and lets us know his thoughts on the series. Currently on the road to becoming a Wing Chun master himself…saying he’s a fan is a bit of an understatement! Ip Man is a series of Hong Kong biographical martial arts films starting with Ip Man in 2008 and followed by two sequels – Ip Man 2 (2010) and Ip Man 3 (2015). The f...

Ajin: Demi Human. Season 1 Review

I enjoyed watching Ajin: Demi Human.  My Netflix account recommended it to me and I ended up watching 12 episodes in a row.  It tackles the dark aspects of the human nature including murder, apathy and suicide (to name a few). It is suitable for 18+ and over as the show can be disturbing at times. Overview The story primarily centres on Kei Nagai, a highschool kid who discovers he is an immortal ‘...

Why DotA 2 Eats N00bs for Breakfast

In considering a review for one of the most highly-successful (and possibly most hated) games in MOBA history, I scrapped that idea. Almost every gamer already has an opinion of DotA 2. And to be fair, no one is really wrong. Ask any gamer what DotA is and you’ll usually get one of the following responses: 1) “I tried it for awhile and just couldn’t get into it.” 2) “...

Hail, Caesar! Review

The one thing I didn’t like about the latest from Cohen Brothers is that I hadn’t been to see it sooner. While a glitzy cast including George Clooney, Scarlett Johansson and Channing Tatum might put some film buffs off, Hail Caesar! instead reminds you why these actors are the big names. Because boy, can they put on a show. Set in the golden era of 1950’s Hollywood film-making, Hail Caesar follows...

There’s Poop in My Soup Review

It’s got an intriguing title but is a turdfest enough to make a good game? That’s what I’m about to find out as I load it up, making sure that I’m offline on Steam to avoid snide messages from my gaming friends. The game is simple – so simple in fact that the developers don’t even bother telling you what the controls are before launching you into the first level...

Far Cry Primal Review

The latest installment in the Far Cry series does a bit of a jump. Instead of hang gliding in Asia, getting attacked by surprisingly aggressive honey badgers, or constantly having to juice yourself up with malaria medicine, we’ve gone way back into the past to when elephants were hairier, collecting human ears was normal and the drugs were more… homemade. Far Cry Primal, as the name suggests...

Allegiant Review

Either Allegiant was a pretty average movie or I’m just getting tired of Dystopian future teen fiction (honestly never thought I would even consider that). It had all the right elements – strong female lead, bad guys, good guys, futuristic technology, romance, tough decisions, action… and yet it failed to grip me. I haven’t read all the books, so maybe I’m missing something glaringly obvious – but...
