Fall Guys (AKA the Only Battle Royale We Wanna Play)

Saskia – I hadn’t heard anything about Fall Guys when an invitation to review it popped up in our inbox. I had just discovered that my computer couldn’t run the PC edition of Horizon Zero Dawn and I was looking for something, ANYTHING, to fill the void. Fall Guys was more than up to the ta...

Great quality, great price – the JBL Quantum 400!

I have always been impressed with the quality of JBL products. I have several bluetooth speakers from JBL and have always raved about them. So, I was excited to see if these headphones measured up. And going by my spoiler of a title, I was impressed. The Quantum 400 is the mid-range option in a new series o...

“The Future of Gaming” according to the PS5

Today, alongside a multitude of great-looking games, Sony revealed the PlayStation 5 for the first time. Let me just cut straight to the chase. Here it is, in all its beautiful glory: Other than the reveal, the only new thing we really learned about the PS5 is that there will be two versions: one with a dis...

Jumanji: The Next Blu-ray

If you haven’t seen Jumanji: The Next Level and want a good time, see it. I loved it. Not necessarily as good as the first, but it at least adds something new and they did it well. In fact, if you loved the first one, you might as well get the sequel on blu-ray because it is a BALL. The film is fun, l...

All aboard the Monster Train!

I’m going to be honest: I thought Monster Train wasn’t going to be very good. Weird trailer, and a silly name. “Monster Train” sounds like a useless toy one of those infomercials would be trying to sell during morning kids cartoons.  *energetic infomercial voice* Collect monsters and...

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...
