2 minute Review: Hit and Run

Time for another quick review, and if you are looking for something light but with action, Hit and Run is your movie. There is so many romance/action movies out there that are just rubbish, but this isn’t one of them. What Hit and Run does differently is it makes the relationships actually feel human. Everyone… Read more »

It’s been a while since the last post here on Couch, life happens and unfortunately this site doesn’t get the love that it needs sometimes. But we are back! If you haven’t read the book American Gods by Neil Gaiman and don’t want to spoil the series, I would highly recommend heading over to Book… Read more »

Downloading Netflix

The big news of streaming (or not streaming) is that Netflix is now offering the ability to download certain movies and shows through their app on tablet and phone. This is an absolutely huge game changer, especially for people who travel a lot, or are away from reliable WiFi services – think while travelling with… Read more »

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 »

psycholog of Stranger Things review

Psychology of Stranger Things

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. I will write more on Mr Robot in the coming few days, but… Read more »

Battlefield 1 Beta review

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 »

    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 »

    Star Wars VII – The Force Awakens

    Finally getting around to reviewing the ‘new’ Star Wars movie which was released in December of last year, better late than never, I suppose. Really, I don’t have much more to say than has been said in a lot of other reviews, that the Force Awakens is much like a remake of  ‘A New Hope’,… Read more »

    Jessica Jones Season 1 Episode 1

    Anything that Netflix touches at the moment seems to be gold and with the association with Marvel, it looks like they are on to another winner with Jessica Jones. Actually, to digress, Wet, Hot American Summer was terrible and an abomination for Netflix produced content but that is another story for another day. Jessica Jones starts… Read more »

    Homeland Season 5 Episode 3 ‘Super Powers’

    Ok, so unfortunately I have fallen a little behind with Homeland this year, so I am trying to make up some time with watching and reviewing over the next week. My DVR is getting a little full at the moment, so it is time to get some of it watched and reviewed. I have to… Read more »

    The Walking Dead Season 6 Episode 8 – Revenge of the bowl cut

    That time of year has wound around again, when we all go on holidays and don’t want to watch TV, when the family is over and we have no ‘must see TV’ to keep us away from dull conversations about Uncle Harry’s new relationship…but hey, everyone has to have a break, right? I missed reviewing… Read more »

    Game of Thrones Season 6 Theories

    Given that HBO have now released a poster for Game of Thrones Season 6, it is probably time to talk about some theories about what may happen in the new season. There will be spoilers ahead.. Jon Snow will rise from the dead There are plenty of theories out there about this and here is… Read more »

    The Walking Dead S06 E06 ‘Always Accountable’

    I was so wrong when I thought that this season of the Walking Dead would be better than the the last few, that we would leave behind the monologues, the empty story building and the ‘our group is the best’ cliches. This episode continued in the vein of last week – a lot of the… Read more »

    iZombie Season 1 Review Is this a zom-com?

    This page was starting to look like a The Walking Dead fan site. Due to a lack of time the only thing that has been posted recently are reviews of the most recent episodes of TWD, so here is a bit of a difference for the week. Not too much of a difference in terms… Read more »

    The Walking Dead S06 E05 Review “Now”

    I said it last week and I will say it again this week – the narrative has been broken and we are getting more and more distanced from the events that led the the possible death of Glenn. It doesn’t feel natural, and we have been given a 2 episodes now where there are no… Read more »

    The Walking Dead S06 E04 “Here’s not here”

    Ah the classic ‘character development arc right in the middle of an important moment’ scheduling technique…Don’t get me wrong, I find the character of Morgan fascinating, however I feel that rather than build tension around Glenn and his ‘death’ this episode just distances us further from the outcome. But seriously, cool episode, but whatever, we… Read more »
