Dropsy

Point and click. Do you remember point and click games? I do, I remember games like Space Quest IV. In that game you got to talk to, smell or taste anything on the screen. I tasted everything. Dropsy has a hug interaction with the open world you wander around in. The goal being to give everyone and everythi...

God of War: Ragnarök

Aw man. I finished God of War: Ragnarök and sheesh. There are moments that are going to stick with me for a while. Little nuggets of wisdom slipped into sometimes poignant but oftentimes innocuous interchanges between these beautifully crafted characters. I gush more about that in my video review, which you...

Cult of the Lamb

Start your own cult in a land of false prophets, venturing out into diverse and mysterious regions to build a loyal community of woodland worshippers and spread your Word to become the one true cult. It has been a low-key dream of mine for many years to start and lead a cult, so something about Cult of the ...

The White Vault Podcast Review

We all have tropes that we particularly like. For myself, I personally like stories about polar exploration, lost ancient civilisations, and the rediscovery of those lost ancient civilisations. Add some creepy supernatural elements, a great cast of voice actors, and a diverse set of characters and you’ll ha...

Bullet Train Review

Assassin, codenamed Ladybug. The lucky bug, but Brad Pitt’s character feels nothing of the sort. Even after a lengthy break filled with therapy sessions, he still feels a dark cloud of tainted fortune hovering about him. But he’s ready for a new mission, a mission on a bullet train.  A train that only ...

Where the Crawdads Sing spoiler-free review

I’m beginning this review having no clue what I’m going to end up scoring this film or even having a clear idea of what I truly felt about it. It all begins with the death of a popular young man in the town. Was his death an accident? A murder? Who did it? WHY? That’s what we’re here...

Top Gun: Maverick

With Top Gun: Maverick being the biggest title to release recently with an epic preview event to go with it, Louise and Saskia decided to head along together, watch Tom Cruise in action, catch Covid and share their thoughts on the film. Saskia – I watched Top Gun several times in my teen years (and it...

Horizon Forbidden West

Many great games came out in 2017. Persona 5, Hellblade, Nier: Automata. Breath of the Wild won Game of the Year. But the game that I couldn’t stop playing until I finished it one morning at 3am was Horizon Zero Dawn. I loved it. It was exactly the kind of game I was craving at the time it came out. S...

Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore (spoiler-free review)

Here I sit, eating mini Lindt Easter eggs and trying to figure out where The Secrets of Dumbledore went wrong. If you’ve read my previous reviews of The Fantastic Beasts films, you’ll know that I thoroughly enjoyed both of them and actually gave The Crimes of Grindelwald a higher rating than the...

The Bad Guys

It has been so long since I have reviewed anything! In fact, I just checked and my last review was in November 2020. So this might be one heck of a rusty review, please forgive me in advance. My eldest daughter, April, is finally old enough to come along to family movies with me and give her perspective on ...

The Batman

I know what everyone wants to know, so I’m going to start with it.  “Is Robert Pattinson a good Batman?” I am happy to respond to this with a resounding and overwhelmingly confident “HELL YES.” In fact, I would go a step further. I would argue that Pattinson is the best live action Batman to date. Although,...

Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection

I’m not going to individually review either game in the Legacy of Thieves Collection. I’ve already done so, back when they first released in 2016 and 2017. If you so desire, you can read my review of Uncharted 4 and my review of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Spoiler alert, I gave them both a 10 ou...
