Upcoming Movies 2015 (Part 1)

Not only is 2015 going to be a year for some legendary games but we’re also being treated to a plethora of new cinematic masterpieces. Mortdecai: This action-comedy starring Johny Depp and Gwyneth Paltrow, directed by David Koepp, and based on the best selling book series by Kyril Bonfiglioli, is set to become an instant cult classic with it’s odd plot and devlishly charming title character. Project Almanac: I’m still not certain of what to make of Project Almanac. It seems like a cliche teen movie, except it has time travel. I suppose time will tell… Seventh Son: A lot of people I know are looking froward to this one. Based on the The Spook’s Apprentice (aka, The Last Apprentice: […]

And 5 more. Batman: Arkam Knight Once again Gotham is in a right state; and once again it is up to the Dark Knight to save the day. Tales From The Borderlands Anyone who knows me knows I am a huge Borderlands fan. So this game has obviously appealed to me.

Raven’s Cry Wookiee knows why I have chosen this one. LOL! Raven’s Cry is a dark RPG adventure game that mixes fictional and historical content giving the player a fresh look at the Caribbean of pirate dominated, 17th Century. War For The Overworld […]

I wants: Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt

Full disclosure, I am still busy trying to finish Witcher 2. The game is done so well, it is so long and looks so pretty that I can’t get myself to rush it. Thus whenever a new game releases I usually play and finish it first before I continue my quest. Enjoying a game thoroughly is a poor excuse though, and it’s getting even worse as the release of the third installment is just around the metaphorical corner. Another game I badly want for 2015, and you want it too *persuasion skill used*. The Witcher is a series based on books by the same name, written by the Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. The player follows the adventures of Geralt of […]

I want: Batman Arkham Knight

Who is the man behind the mask that hunts the Bat? Who would potentially have the skill to drop the dark knight on his back and put a gun to his head? Who is the Arkham Knight? If we assume that Rocksteady Studios has some common sense and don’t just reveal the new enemy to be the dead Joker, we could be in for an amazing finale to the Arkham trilogy. The rumour mill has been spitting out all sorts of theories ranging from Jason Tod (Red Robin/ Red hood) to rampaging mirrors on steroids. The introduction of a new mystery character in the final chapter of the Arkham series may have been the best way to build hype yet. […]

Welcome to Purgatory

A few days ago we spoke to Gene Fallaize. Today we speak to him about his newest, and probably biggest, film to date –Welcome to Purgatory. Let’s start with the basics. What is “Welcome to Purgatory” about?

But when they arrive they discover that Hell has broken free of its bounds and has attacked Heaven, and the entire afterlife is at war.

The Mothertown

Once again we speak to John Williams. Let’s start with the basics. What is “The Mothertown” about? It follows the lives of various groups of people from all backgrounds during the event of a zombie outbreak. It all happens in the space of 1 day in the city of stoke on trent. Where did you get the inspiration for it? The zombie inspiration is easy, Dawn of the dead, day of the dead, The Walking dead etc. etc., but the story itself is from my own warped mind. How long did the story take to produce? I started to write it when I was in hospital after my operation and finished it back at home, it took around 2 weeks […]

Star wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens

A long time ago. In a galaxy far, far away…. The tale of a farm boy who is swept away by events that are out of his control that eventually lead him to meet various characters, travel to exotic locales, ultimately save the galaxy and learn of his true origins inspires generations of ordinary citizens. Many years pass and the villain of that story is given a backstory. This disappoints legions of believers in the original tales and their faith in The Force is tested. But when a wealthy mouse finds a way to resurrect and attempt to continue the story from where it had ended off, hope was once more restored. Although, much scepticism remains…… Star wars: Episode VII […]

Five Shorts You Must Watch

 

 Short films and series make the world go round… or something like that. I adore short films -their matchless characters, their unique styles, their peculiar nuances, there is nothing like an experimental short. Today we look at a few of the my favourite shorts. The life and death of Tommy Chaos and Stacey Danger: This short film is a fantastically produced piece of cinema. Revolving around a couple who no longer care about anything and try to escape from life, death and the daily struggle against invading dinosaurs. Sausage: An animated short that revolves around food. (What’s not to like about that?) This uniquely French flavoured short revolves around a pair of street vendors during their struggle to outmatch their […]
