God of War, Porridge and meeting Mihir Sheth & Denny Yeh

I was once a pretty conservative teenager, which meant the God of War franchise was certainly not for me! Gore!? Hidden sexy mini-games!?? NO WAY! But now, a few years on (just a few, ok!?), I am well and truly a GoW convert. I could be lying, but I think God of War (2018) might have been the first game I a...

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 ...

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...

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 ...

Freaky *spoiler free* Review

It’s been way too long since I’ve sat down to write a review. I genuinely am struggling to remember where to start. I think I usually start with some personal little tidbit about my prior knowledge of the film or what I had for breakfast that day, so let’s start there. On Wednesday the 11t...

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...

Ghost of Tsushima *Spoiler Free Review*

When I was offered the chance to review Ghost of Tsushima, I sheepishly turned to a fellow gamer colleague and said “so…what can you tell me about this game?”. I didn’t follow the progress of the game’s creation, see any game footage or trailers prior to beginning. I went in blind, only knowing I was ...

The Last of Us Part II *SPOILER FREE REVIEW*

When the game ended and the credits rolled, after clocking in at 30 hours of gameplay, my husband and I just sat there in silence for a long time trying to process what we had just experienced. First let me, without directly mentioning any, address the leaks and speculations floating around out there. They ...

The Last of Us Part II – Early Impressions

So, I’ve been playing The Last of Us Part II solidly, every evening, for just over a week and I’m finally allowed to share some spoiler-free thoughts with you (on one designated preview part of the game). I absolutely can not wait to tell you about the game as a whole – golly gosh! Also, f...
