Mission Impossible is the polar opposite of what most franchises have become. The first two are rather hideous compared to the most recent three films. Since Mission Impossible III, there’s been an upward trend of these movies. First returning director for the franchise, Christopher McQuarrie, came aboard the franchise with Rogue Nation and great results. Fallout is somewhat a continuation of leftover events from Rogue Nation. Remember what I mentioned earlier about the upward trend? Somehow, these films continue to get better. Fallout brings the series its best moments and likely the best film of the franchise and a memorable staple for all action films.
The first Incredibles first is an ode to superhero and spy films of a golden age in Hollywood. But rather than stopping there, The Incredibles put an all too relevant social commentary on the life and evolution of the superhero. It ended up being a delightful and clever film that was unique. There really isn’t any issue with the first film. It’s perfectly paced, the dialogue is excellent, the action is filmed well. You can see what this film has to live up to, in short it doesn’t. However, it’s definitely a worthy enough sequel that fits in and even stands out among the plethora of superhero films that dominate today’s market.
I’ve never played a God of War game before, I’ve heard of it but having spent most of my time on the Xbox 360 it was never a game I looked at too closely. Times change though and I now play on both consoles which meant the latest God of War caught my attention. I found myself researching the past games and instantly knew that this would be right up my street. God of War was hyped up to astronomical levels and the question became, could it live up to that hype. Continue reading God of War Review
The pomp and circumstance of Infinity War is seen seldom in the realm of film. 18 films of build-up throughout 10 years, a culmination of the characters that Marvel has bred for this colossal event. Infinity War certainly feels like an event, often switching between a few main storylines. The resonating result of Infinity War is a film that is a quintessential Marvel film.

We’re all gamers, it’s why you’re here reading this article, on this very website, from our little Facebook page. We all have our favourite titles we fondly remember, or follow on with comics, short stories, fan fiction, novels and sometimes, movies. We follow certain storylines and lore, characters and their adventures, and look forward to what the future holds for these avatars. However, there are those who love nothing more than to ruin the experience for us. (no spoilers ahead)
There are a lot of things I could pick over in Far Cry 5, random assets not quite placed in the game world properly or AI NPCs doing odd things or perhaps just criticise Ubisoft for recycling a lot of assets from other games but that wouldn’t be fair because this just may be the best Ubisoft game and certainly the best Far Cry game that I have played. Continue reading Far Cry 5 Review,
Xbox fans were outraged earlier this week when they learned that No Man’s Sky; previously exclusive to PlayStation 4 and PC, was going to be arriving on the Xbox One platform later this year. “We can’t be having two lacking-in content titles on our Xbox,” they spouted in anger, and who can blame them?! Continue reading Xbox fans demand Sea of Thieves goes to PlayStation, “if we’re getting No Man’s Sky”
Sea of Thieves was in development for quite a while and I was lucky enough to be a part of the play test sessions and provide the developers with feedback throughout so that they could hopefully improve the game so that it could reach its potential come release day. So did Sea of thieves reach it’s Potential? It’s a tricky one to answer. The short version is no but if you want the slightly longer version then read on. Continue reading Sea Of Thieves Review
Annihilation might be an enigma to many. It’s marketed like a Nolan film but with the budget, Annihilation doesn’t give away much other than the fact that there’s a foreign threat that could be alien. Going in dark to this film is preferred because watching the story unravel is a spectacle. From 2nd time writer/director, Alex Garland, we are given a science fiction to marvel at with incredible imagery and fantastic narrative. The former is to be expected of; Garland is prolific in writing notable sci-fi films. However, his evolution as a director with a bigger budget is admirable as he doesn’t lose sight of the goal he’s trying to attain. Chalk Annihilation up as a film everyone will have a strong opinion about and one that will have longevity in the world of sci-fi films.
