‘American Horror Story – Cult 7×03: Neighbours from Hell’ Review

7 hours ago

If I was to write that American Horror Story: Cult is a brave show to air on television, I’m sure many would say “no, it just sucks.” The thing is with this year’s choice of subject, which has a focus more on the psychological, it is going to divide viewers. This is a year that is definitely trying to mess with anybody who chooses to watch it. The question is going to be, is the risk worth it?

After the shooting, last week Ally (Sarah Paulson) finds herself exonerated from any blame for her actions. This doesn’t make everybody happy though as Ally and Ivy (Alison Pill) find out when they find protests outside their restaurant. With Kai (Evan Peters) showing support for Ally though, just what is he up to?

This week’s episode managed to at first confuse me as to what it was trying to achieve, »

From VHS to VOD #4

9 hours ago

We’ve covered plenty of obscure films available on iTunes in previous From VHS to VOD columns but Apple’s digital service is not the only VOD service making waves into the strange and obscure – there’s plenty of odd, unseen and unreleased (well unreleased on disc formats) films available on Amazon Video.

Unlike iTunes, a lot of the more obscure titles are only available for streaming rather than purchase, though the wide variety of films you don’t, and probably won’t see elsewhere makes up for that. Like iTunes there are some truly obscure films hidden away in the depths of Amazon’s vast collection of movies. Some of which have been made available in the UK for the first time since VHS and a Lot that have been added to the service in their original uncut form!

So, with that said here’s highlight some of the best (well, »

‘Never Let Go’ Review

13 hours ago

Stars: Angela Dixon, Nigel Whitmey, Lisa Eichhorn, Velibor Topic, Heather Peace, Rami Nasr, Sarah Perles, Samantha Bolter, Michael Xavier, Glenn Salvage, Sanita Simms, Darcie Lincoln | Written and Directed by Howard J. Ford

How best to describe Never Let Go? How about a movie that feels like Paul Greengrass directed Taken, with a kick-ass leading female of T2 Linda Hamilton proportions…

In truth, in my humble opinion Never Let Go is actually way better than those Taken movies. I know, I know, I liked them when they first came out as well, but this movie completely took me by surprise… In the best possible way. Ladies and Gents, Angela Bloody Dixon. This leading lady is fantastic, she grips the viewer by the balls and takes you on a thrilling, tour de force ride, leaving you wondering exactly how far would you go for your kids.

So I guess I should give »

‘Arrow: The Complete Fifth Season’ DVD Review

20 September 2017 10:01 AM, PDT

It feels like recently I’ve been reviewing way too many superhero series. I’ve gone from the dorky style of Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow, to the slightly more serious The Flash. Now it is time to look at Arrow: The Complete Fifth Season, which takes things even more seriously.

In Arrow: The Complete Fifth Season Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) is now mayor meaning that his balance between work and being the Arrow is even more complicated. When a new nemesis in the form of Prometheus arrives in Star City, Oliver’s eyes will be opened to who he really is, and what consequences his actions have.

While there is (normally) a light-hearted feel to the other DC shows, Arrow tends to take the darker tone. This is made obvious in this season when we see Oliver not afraid to kill his enemies for what he sees as the greater good. »

Digital Shorts: ‘League of Evil’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

20 September 2017 8:01 AM, PDT

In Digital Shorts we review some of the latest video games that are only available digitally (at least in the UK), in a short-form review format. In this edition we take a look at the popular League of Evil, released recently on the Nintendo Switch.

Shovelware is a strong and unpleasant word. It conjures up images of the kind of software that you might find on a CD-rom stuck to the front of a self-help PC magazine from the nineties, but for me, it has a second meaning. Crap re-releases.

It’s a bit harsh to describe League of Evil as crap, but it’s also not the kind of re-release I’m especially exited about, especially not when the Switch has such potential. Originally a 2011 mobile phone game, League of Evil first made waves with a super tight control scheme that defied the traditional standard of touch-screen operated platform games. »
