The Park Is Almost Open | Why Jurassic Park Matters

The Park Is Almost Open | Why Jurassic Park Matters

I’m a massive Jurassic Park fan, so you can imagine by joy when a fourth film was announced to be released this June. The Jurassic series is part of the reason I’m into films, being creative, and of course writing my eyes out. Lots of people have been debating the direction of Jurassic World (the fourth film in the franchise) due to the hybrid dinosaur, Indominus Rex and Chris Pratt’s Raptor Squad. Warning: This article may contain spoilers for Jurassic World. Read at your own discretion. However, I have complete faith we won’t be let down when the film drops this summer. The Indominus Rex seems like a massive threat,...

Fun, Fresh But Flawed – Hand of Fate Review (PS4/PC)

Fun, Fresh But Flawed – Hand of Fate Review (PS4/PC)

A mish-mash of games and concepts, Hand of Fate is truly intriguing. A combination of card game, Dungeons & Dragons and action RPG, Hand of Fate is a ambitious attempt to create something new. The ambition on display by developer Defiant Development is worthy of applause, the problem is, Hand of Fate is a mixed bag of success and failure. The heart of the game is a battle of wills, and luck, between the player the masked dealer. Sitting opposite the dealer, in a dark candle lit room., the cards and dealt and the game begins. The cards are split into two sections, items and encounters, the game begins and...

Ben Affleck’s Batsuit Revealed!

Ben Affleck’s Batsuit Revealed!

By now, the internet is freaking out over the reveal of Ben Affleck’s batsuit which he’ll be throwing on for Batman vs Superman. The film is being helmed by Zack Snyder and is to be the follow-up to Man Of Steel which introduced Henry Cavill as Superman. These two heroes will also be joined by Gal Gadot who will be playing Wonder Woman, Jeremy Irons playing Bruce Wayne/Batman’s butler, Alfred Pennyworth and Jesse Eisenberg (still skeptical) as Lex Luthor. The film, to be released in May of 2016 will be the first appearance of Ben Affleck as Batman. People are saying he doesn’t fit the role, or it just won’t...

The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Review

The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Review

Spider-man, Spider-man, does whatever a spider can. Amazing Spider-Man is the follow up film to 2012′s, Amazing Spider-Man and sees the return of Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spiderman. I was a massive fan of the previous Spidey film and praised Andrew’s performance as both Peter and the web-slinger. He nailed something in the character that I felt like Tobey McGuire was missing in his performances in the original three films. We get that solid character and performance continued on in the second Amazing film and he continues to show that he has acting chops. WARNING: Spoilers are in-bound. Use your Spidey Senses at your own discretion. Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens...

Noobz: The Misrepresentation of Video Game Culture

Noobz: The Misrepresentation of Video Game Culture

The last few years have seen some truly wonderful films based on video game/nerd culture. Indie Game: The Movie showed the passion and dedication with which the indie scene is brimming. The Dungeon Masters gave us an insight into the importance of gaming (albeit in the pen-and-paper format) in people’s lives, even showing how D & D acted as a release for some rather troubled individuals. The King of Kong, also, was a wonderful story of one man’s sheer determination to clear his name as a cheat, and reclaim a title once stolen from him. All these films provide a wonderful insight into the culture that is slowly becoming more and more...

Top 5 Televison Deaths of 2013

People die in television shows all the time and it really hits home for some of them. These are my choices for the top five deaths that we saw onscreen in 2013. Reminder, some of these are spoilers so please bear with me. You’ve been warned. These are also in no particular order, just the ones that hit me the hardest from shows I watch.

Dark Corners: Dead Silence

Dark Corners: Dead Silence

Dark Corners is a fortnightly feature focused purely on horror. From the classics to remakes, and even the lesser known flicks, they’ll all feature. This week sees one of James Wan’s earlier films that paved the way for his success with the likes of Insidious and The Conjuring. Dead Silence is one of those tricky horror films that clearly shows a director trying to find their style. A few years before James Wan would become a mainstream success with the likes of Insidious and The Conjuring under his belt, he came to the attention of many through his work with the Saw films. Saw had it’s own definitive style both in...

Why I’m Excited For Jurassic World

Why I’m Excited For Jurassic World

I’ve been a fan of Jurassic Park ever since seeing the first film back when I was a young child, and developing my love for dinosaurs. I always thought it was incredible and also a terrifying journey and have watched the first film/read the first book numerous times as not only is it my favorite film of all time, but also my favorite novel. It told a very unique, and captivating story. What if dinosaurs were around the same time as man? What if a group of people cloned dinosaurs and made a theme park? The novel/film told these stories brilliantly and to this day the film still holds the...

Doctor Who – What It Means To Me

Doctor Who – What It Means To Me

I know we’re a gaming focused website but I do like putting out my thoughts on other media platforms as well on here. I’d like to take a moment and chat about Doctor Who, and what it means to me, and why I consider it to be the best series ever made and to ever grace our television sets. Agree, or disagree it’s all about opinions from here on in. A show spanning 50 years, and still releasing new episodes. That’s pretty damn amazing. However, this article will contain spoilers so please read with caution if you’re not up to date on Doctor Who. I remember when I first heard...

Farewell To Eleven

Farewell To Eleven

Later today we’ll see the end of Matt Smith’s era on Doctor Who, and his regeneration into the Twelfth Doctor which is being portrayed by the fantastic actor, Peter Capaldi. I’ll be extremely sad to see Matt go as he is essentially my Doctor, and the one I’ve really gotten attached to more than any other actor who’s been in the role. However, I’m also really excited to see Peter take over the helm of the TARDIS, and have some adventures of his own. As a sort of tribute to Matt Smith, and the beloved Eleventh Doctor, I’ve decided to compile a list of my favorite episodes, and moments featuring...
