I never enjoyed picking up a hardback of a big event, then feeling like I was missing half the story because 6 other comics intersected with it. Unfortunately, it seems that’s where the MCU is headed.Read more "Some Marvel-ous Missteps"
Whether it’s the 2013’s viral music video Turn Down for What or their more recent Swiss Army Man (2016) you can’t argue the Daniels like to keep it weird. But their latest mouthful of an outing, Everything Everywhere All at Once, solidifies that there’s more to the directors than just wackiness.Read more "Just be a rock – Everything Everywhere All At Once review"
As an on-screen character, Batman has been through a lot of changes. From the comic campness of the Adam West show, to Burton and then Nolan’s films, right up to the guns blazing, growling “Do you bleed?” of Ben Affleck’s version, we’ve seen a fair few different versions over the years. Ahead of Affleck’s alleged final portrayal of the character in upcoming movie The Flash (2022) comes a long-awaited solo outing for the caped crusader, directed by Matt Reeves.Read more "A Very Dark Knight – The Batman review"
From the off, Outward makes it clear that it won’t be one of your more typical Western RPGs. If you don’t pay the above fine to your village on time, or obtain another way of being let off, you lose access to all the amenities the village provides. You don’t start with much gear, so going out into the world to explore almost guarantees you’ll get your behind handed to you by the various enemies.Read more "Indie to a fault – an Outward feature"
Things are always going to be lost in the process of adapting work from one medium to another, and such a complex book as Dune is no exception: How do you condense hundreds of pages of rich prose, world-building, politicking and inner monologues into something comprehensible and enjoyable for movie-goers?Read more "The Dune Issue"
Much like Rare’s Sea of Thieves, which I wrote about last year, No Man’s Sky has clearly been a labour of love for the studio behind it and Hello Games have redeemed themselves in many people’s eyes.
I picked the game up during 2020’s lockdown and played for a few months in both single-player and multiplayer. After close to a year’s break, and with the arrival of the new Frontiers update I decided to reinstall the game to have a look…Read more "Flat Frontiers – A No Man’s Sky feature"
Where the hell was I?
What have I been up to?
What are my current plans for the blog?
Let’s answer these in order, shall we? So, to start:Read more "The Disappearing Act"
Good afternoon, dear readers! Before we get into the meat of this post, let me paws for a second to share some fairly exciting news. As any of you who have me on Facebook, Instagram etc. might be aware, this week I had my work published for the very first time! Myself and eleven other […]Read more "Some exciting news and a Cats (2019) review"
Good afternoon, dear readers. I hope you’re all keeping well considering the on-going apocalypse and haven’t rushed out to the pub to contribute to second-wave shenanigans. It’s been a while since I wrote anything about video games on this blog, which is very odd considering it’s one of my main hobbies. During lock-down, with not […]Read more "Nautical Naughtiness – A Sea of Thieves feature"
Good afternoon, dear readers. Apologies for the radio silence, but my March motivation sort of vanished into thin air when life ground to a halt. Funny, that. Anyway, as it’s been so long and my grades have come back, I’m now able to share some of the work I submitted (or at least, the stuff […]Read more "Review – The Lighthouse (2019)"
