April and The Extraordinary World (2016)

Fevier Francais continues, as well as any mentions of Extraordinary Worlds and the presence of Jacque Tardi somehow in a feature film. What strikes me is the fact that this is labelled a children’s film on Amazon Prime. They are wrong. Very, very wrong. This is definitely a family film. There are just too many multi-layered jokes along with historical conundrum mixed into the general … Continue reading April and The Extraordinary World (2016)

Va11 Hall-A (2016/19)

Cyberpunk is coming back.  It never really left, but its coming full circle again in the fashion timeline (which isn’t a straight line.  But more like a Spiral that keeps getting longer, hence a lot of things tend to come and go).  The difference between now and it’s golden age is that the technology is a step closer, going from, as Phillip K Dick suggested, … Continue reading Va11 Hall-A (2016/19)

Right, we’re now on the last game of the Nathan Drake series known as Uncharted 4 A Thief’s End.  What is entailed when it’s called a thief’s end?  So much is left up for interpretation.  But that’s for you to witness.  So here we go. Our story starts with Nathan Drake on a boat in the middle of the ocean with another man by the … Continue reading Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End (2016) Video Game Review

Final Fantasy XV (2016) Video Game Review

About 10 years…that’s how long this game was in development.  In the entertainment industry, they would tell you that a game like this was in Development Hell – meaning it has taken so long that the game doesn’t look like it will see a release.  Duke Nukem Forever had it, Persona 5 and Syberia 3 are on their way to leaving it behind in April, … Continue reading Final Fantasy XV (2016) Video Game Review

Zootopia/Zootropolis (2016) Movie Review

Last year, around the time this film was on in cinema, life was pretty busy.  So I had to choose between this and Captain America 3: Civil War.  Today I have no regrets on that decision (it was IMAX) – but it doesn’t mean I didn’t want to see this film.  Fast forward nearly a year, this film, which made over a billion dollars at … Continue reading Zootopia/Zootropolis (2016) Movie Review

Underworld: Blood Wars (2016) Movie Review

It’s a new year, and its been 5 years since I saw Underworld Awakening in 3D back in January 2012.  Much has changed, but how much of that change can be said about “Underworld 5”?  Lets find out…also, if you haven’t seen Underworld, Underworld: Evolution, Underworld: Rise Of The Lycans and Underworld: Awakening, then I suggest going away and then coming back…It’s an unwritten rule … Continue reading Underworld: Blood Wars (2016) Movie Review

Hunt For The Wilderpeople (2016) Movie Review

The day before I watched this film I never even heard of it, until a friend recommended it on her Facebook, as it’s available on Netflix.  So here we are.  And a Happy Belated New Year this Friday the 13th. Set in the New Zealand, primarily around the New Zealand Bush, our story revolves around a teenager named Ricky Baker (Julian Dennison) and his foster … Continue reading Hunt For The Wilderpeople (2016) Movie Review

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) Movie Review

Before we begin, lets consider what the general public might be aware of so far:  As of the beginning of Winter this year, this is hailed on IMDB as the 176th greatest film ever made (apparently better than Gone Girl, Stand By Me, Rocky and The Terminator). On Rotten Tomatoes, the only rotten review was from someone who accused it of using nostalgia as a … Continue reading Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) Movie Review

Arrival (2016) Movie Review

Every so often a Sci-fi movie comes along that is just…different.  Many a’times it’s set in space or in a futuristic version of earth, action-orientated, packed with laser guns and advanced ships, full of politics and lots of clean, spiky, skin-tight uniforms.  But every so often a sci-fi movie is set on earth, closer to our time, and it tackles the possibility that there is … Continue reading Arrival (2016) Movie Review
