Logan

So I have just gotten back from seeing Logan and I am putting it out there right now, this one may actually be the best X-men movie never mind wolverine movie. Now, the movie isn’t in the cinemas at time of writing and I know I would be pissed if someone spoiled any of it for me, so rest assured there will be no spoilers here. Other than it’s awesome. (Fuck Spoilers!) Plot The plot is set in the y...[Read More]

John Wick: Chapter 2

I was worried after seeing the posters and trailer that John Wick: Chapter 2 would just be a rehash of the original, maybe someone else would steal his car and kill his new dog, I remember saying “if another fucking dog dies” I will walk out. Thankfully the plot is pretty original and does what all good sequels should, builds on the existing universe to tell a new story. The Plot The plot picks up...[Read More]

Batman: The Black Mirror

Black Mirror is a story set in an interesting time at DC, Bruce Wayne effectively died during the events of Final Crisis which lead to Dick Grayson taking up the mantle of Batman, a decision he struggled with many times with other writers at the helm. Scott Snyder has a different take, Dick Grayson is much more comfortable and experienced in the role of being Gotham’s Dark Knight and more im...[Read More]

Dishonored 2

The  main story is pretty strong, it picks up fifteen years after the events of the first game, Emily is now the Empress of the Isles and Corvo is her bodyguard. The Empress is then attacked, some betrayal goes on and either Corvo or Emily has to flee the empire in order to find out who is behind the plot, and regain the throne.  It’s a similar progression to the original, as in its heavily ...[Read More]

The Accountant

So I just got back from the press screening for The Accountant, and I have to say, that I was blown away by this film. I hadn’t heard much about it, hell; I didn’t even watch the trailer, so I didn’t know what to expect from it, I will however say I know what I didn’t expect. I did not expect Maths Batman. Plot So the plot surrounds Christian Wolff (played by Ben Affleck), who is a forensic accoun...[Read More]

Final Fantasy VII

So, with news of Final Fantasy VII finally getting a remake, I felt it was time to dust off the PlayStation One, dig out my old copy and replay it for the 20th time. But then I thought to myself, “bollocks to that, it’s the future!”, so I downloaded to my PSP, so I could play it on the go and quite frankly, it hasn’t been out of my hands. You see Final Fantasy games require a lot of your time, (we...[Read More]

Jessica Jones

Be warned I’m going into spoiler territory here, but frankly if you haven’t watched Jessica Jones yet then I don’t care about your feelings and you can’t come to my birthday party.  Seriously go watch this show, even if you’re not a fan of the superhero genre. The plot Our story is about Jessica Jones played by Krysten Ritter, a female private eye with super strength and durability. Rather than da...[Read More]

Arrow (Season 5 Premiere)

  With Arrow inspiring so many other comic book related shows, it effectively lost its audience around season 3 by trying to be more light hearted like The Flash. Forgetting that it was the show’s dark, edginess that fans loved and it just didn’t work. There were some frankly insulting moments from the writing team, still to this day I can’t believe that wheelchair walk out. From ...[Read More]

Supergirl Season 2 Premiere

Thought impossible, after the embargo from DC executives of major characters being used on TV and being reserved for the movie-verse, it’s amazing to see the Man of Tomorrow back on our screens. Indeed while it is fantastic for such an A-lister to turn up, the writers are graceful enough to balance his introduction and still maintain that this show is about Kara, AKA Supergirl. The Maiden of...[Read More]

Tarik (Issue 1)

Thus far I have only had the pleasure of reading the first issue of Tarik so a full review is always difficult but like the professional I am (Fuck you, I am) I persevered . The Plot Tarik is set in “the Kingdom of Altair” and follows the story of a young boy named Tarik, a member of the iron district. He is left orphaned as a boy when his mother, “Grania” and his father (unnamed), are killed by m...[Read More]

Last night I went to a preview screening of War on Everyone, courtesy of Movie House cinema. This is the new film from John Michael McDonagh, the writer/director of The Guard and Calvary. New Mexico police detectives Terry Monroe (Alexander Skarsgård) and Bob Bolaño (Michael Peña) spend their days shaking down criminals for some extra cash. When “Lord” James Mangan (Theo James), an int...[Read More]
