Westworld Episode 1

Westworld just premiered on HBO to the highest figures since True Detective! But of course it did, Game of Thrones and any number of other great HBO series set it up for them! The question is, does Westworld stack up? The answer seems to be a resounding yes (with a current 9.3 rating on imdb)…. Read more »

mad max without cgi

Mad Max without CGI is incredible

When Mad Max was released and reviewed it was known that a lot of the effects were practical effects rather than computer generated. By practical effects, we mean that the explosions actually happened rather than it being drawn and built through computer aid. Now a pre-production video has been released showing these effects in action and it… Read more »

We have previously reviewed Stranger Things, but it is time for the psychology of Stranger Things and a little exploration of the psychological themes that sit in the background of the show. So what is there to say about an adventure series about some pre-adolescent kids and a couple of helpful adults? Well, a lot,… Read more »

Batman vs Superman

2 minute Review – Batman vs Superman

I reviewed the Suicide Squad, which I watched in quick succession after Batman Vs Superman and I have to say that I preferred the latter. They both got tons of promo, but I would say that Suicide Squad was more anticipated, especially given the Bat-fleck aspect of BvS and the fact that many people were… Read more »

The Psychology of Mr Robot

Hello friend I was recently interviewed on the Ars Technica ‘Decrypted’ podcast by the awesome Nathan Matisse, looking at the psychology of Mr Robot and the theories behind what Elliot is suffering from and how well this is executed in the show.

We spoke about the release video previously here and what the thoughts were on release and now the Beta has dropped for the new DICE game Battlefield 1. First thoughts are that this game looks like an amazing addition to the Battlefield franchise and will do very well in terms of sales. I was a… Read more »

suicide squad review

Suicide Squad review

Is there a movie that has been more hyped than Suicide Squad this season? Unfortunately, it got plenty of bad reviews, currently sitting at 26% on Rotten Tomatoes, however I went into it with an open mind. A movie that has a star cast and a massive budget can’t be that bad, can it? Even… Read more »

    So, after complaining about it and saying that the viewing public is too impatient, it has finally happened – Jon Snow has arisen, but being the last scene of the episode only time will tell in what way he has come back.

    The Walking Dead – S06 Ep 12 – Not Tomorrow yet

    This week’s episode of The Walking Dead ‘Not tomorrow yet’ definitely moved the story forward (Remember that if you are behind in the series Amazon has them on-demand to buy). There was a little too much boredom in the last few episodes since the return. The Benny Hill-esque chase scene of ‘Jesus’ was ridiculous and… Read more »

    Finally getting around to reviewing the ‘new’ Star Wars movie which was released in December of last year, better late than never, I suppose.
