Pee Mak (2013)

With a certain holiday (if we can call it that this year) around the corner, let’s do a ghost story. And in this case, let’s talk about a ghost story that made so much money in Thailand that it became their highest grossing film, by being made on a budget of $1,800,000 and leaving theContinue reading “Pee Mak (2013)”

Rain (2013) Video Game Review

My experience with late arrivals in gaming generations has been surprisingly positive, from Final Fantasy IX coming out on the PS1 in europe shortly after the release of the PS2.  To Yakuza 2 and Persona 4 as PS2 games that came out within a year of the PS3’s release, and all 3, but particularly theContinue reading “Rain (2013) Video Game Review”

Attack On Titan (2013) TV Show Review

Before ever seeing this show, I had heard of the legends – about how this is 1 of the best mangas and animes ever made.  And certainly, it’s 1 of the hottest animes to come out in the last 5 years.  Today I finished the final episode to the anime series (or Season 1, atContinue reading “Attack On Titan (2013) TV Show Review”

The Past (2013) Movie Review

Ever want to see what happens when a soap opera is written and acted incredibly well and squeezed into 2 hours rather than 50 years?  Well, you’re in luck, because a little French-Italian-Iranian film called The Past (or Le Passé) has pulled it off Set in Paris, our film focuses on 2 families, and all ofContinue reading “The Past (2013) Movie Review”

Batman: Arkham Origins: Blackgate (2013) Video Game Review

If you’re reading this review, chances are you already know the Arkham series quite well.  Asylum?  Fantastic.  City?  One of the best video games ever made.  Origins?  A very good attempt by a non-Rocksteady developer.  And Knight?  Still excellent.  But then there’s this game, which came out on the same day as Origins.  What canContinue reading “Batman: Arkham Origins: Blackgate (2013) Video Game Review”

Life Is Strange (2015) Video Game Review

Kind of an amusing choice in timing for this 1.  As Marty McFly recently arrived in the Future, which now means that the whole of Back To The Future is officially set in the past, I end up finishing easily 1 of the most interesting games that I’ve ever played, which also happens to involveContinue reading “Life Is Strange (2015) Video Game Review”

Batman: Arkham Origins (2013) Video Game Review

So, after we saw 2 of the best Batman games ever made, Warner Bros decided it would be a good idea to create a prequel to the Arkham series.  1 that set the scene (or partly set the scene) of the events that would come by Arkham Asylum.  So…Arkham Origins. Set on Christmas Eve duringContinue reading “Batman: Arkham Origins (2013) Video Game Review”

The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya (2013) Movie Review

In 2013, Studio Ghibli released 2 major films in Japan.  One was Hayao Miyazaki’s The Wind Rises, which ended up being his last film before retiring from animation altogether (and in his retirement is now creating a Samurai Manga).  The other was this film, by Studio Ghibli co-founder Isao Takahata, who returns to directing forContinue reading “The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya (2013) Movie Review”

Enough Said (2013) Movie Review

While on my way to Cyprus for a week (to justify a long absence from this blog), this film, along with Night At The Museum 3 (I haven’t seen the 1st 2, so I didn’t watch it), were the in-flight movies, and to show you what kind of a film it was – it hasContinue reading “Enough Said (2013) Movie Review”

The Wind Rises Movie Review

My love affair with Studio Ghibli films began around Christmas 2007, when a friend gave me 2 DVDs.  One of them was a Japanese comedy bloodbath known as Versus, the other was Princess Mononoke.  After Christmas, HMV was having their January sale.  Every Studio Ghibli movie was being sold for £5 that month.  So whatContinue reading “The Wind Rises Movie Review”
