May 25th is Towel Day, the day fans celebrate the life and works of Douglas Adams; notably The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (May 25th is also the day Star Wars came out, a year before the Radio series first broadcast).
The first Deadpool film felt like a breath of fresh air, it’s R rating and surface disregard for the conventions of modern superhero movie narratives made it a cultural touchstone, a film you just had to see because it wasn’t like anything you’d ever seen before.
There is a saying; either do something original and make it rough or do something ordinary and make it perfect.
There’s a saying in the Sonic fan community; no matter how bad the game is, the soundtrack will always be good.
It’s a testament to just how much the work of Edgar Wright has had an impression on me that I’ll go see his films pretty much based on the knowledge that he made it. Put simply, there’s nobody out there that works like him so no matter what he tackles in his career, it’ll at the very least be interesting.
It’s kinda funny that a film that features the line “never go back to your childhood” is a remake of a classic Disney animated film. It’s a cynical marketing ploy to remake a film that sticks so close to it’s source material, but when the source material is this good, it’s hard to find anything worth changing, and…
I honestly think that The Lego Batman Movie might just be the best Batman movie ever made and features quite possibly one of the best Batmans ever (at least top 5 for movies).
I was chatting to my some co-workers today and the topic of movies and movie remakes came up. After the point was raised that I really want the Fast and Furious movie franchise to be a long-winded prequel to either Transformers or MASK, I was told that The Mask should never be remade and I immediately disagreed, The…
Today, I recieved the latest update for one of my favourite party games, Cards Against Humanity, and it’s the biggest update in the game’s history and I figured it was time to not only review this bigger than big (and indeed, blacker than black) upgrade, but to look back and see just how far this game has come.
Just watched Marvel’s latest entry into their Cinematic Universe and felt like posting a review.
On the twenty-third day of the month of September
in an early year of a decade not too long before our own,
the human race suddenly encountered a deadly
threat to its very existence.
And this terrifying enemy surfaced,
as such enemies often do,
in the seemingly most innocent and unlikely of places...
It’s no secret that there’s such a thing as Duelling Movies, and it’s always been a fascinating concept to me, that two different creative teams can create two different stories based around pretty much the same premise and get totally different results. It’s possibly the closest we’ll get to treating movie making as…
Just finished watching the first series (10 episodes) of Dan Harmon’s other animated show, HarmonQuest and it’s a basically the D&D segment from his HarmonTown podcast, but with special guest stars and animated segments where appropriate. It’s available behind a subscription to SeeSo (or elsewhere, *wink wink, nudge…
I’ve been meaning to watch this film for a long time but it had such a limited release I never got the chance to see it in the cinema, so when I saw it was out on DVD, I had to buy it and goddamn, I love it.
I just back from seeing the film and whilst it was clearly never going to be better than the original, it’s a decent, entertaining update that just about walks the line between being too referential to the original and carving it’s own path (with the exception of the third act).
Just back from watching the sequel to Independence Day and whilst it’s - unsurprisingly - nowhere near as good as it’s predecessor, it’s a better sequel than I was expecting with some great moments but there’s a lot of stupid stuff that drags it down.
Nintendo UK are running two competitions, one to simply win a copy of the game when it comes out, the other is to win a massive bundle (pictured above) if you answer one very simple question about the Legend of Zelda universe.
Cards Against Humanity are releasing the decks that appeared at PAX and for their Eight Sensible Gifts for Hannukah event, renaming them the Geek and Jew decks, respectively.
