First trailer for Disney’s ‘Zootropolis’

4 hours ago

The modern mammal metropolis of Zootropolis is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when optimistic Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery.

Zootropolis is the latest film from Walt Disney Animation Studios and it has one hell of a pedigree – the film is directed by Byron Howard (Tangled, Bolt) and Rich Moore (Wreck-It Ralph, »

‘Clandestine’ Review (PC)

6 hours ago

Some games, while they offer a single player experience thrive off being social. However Clandestine is well thought out enough to let one player succeed, but to truly find your groove you need another person to work with you.

In the game, the year is 1996, five years after the Soviet Union has fallen. With a string of accidents and murders going unnoticed by the public eye, the international world of spies is on high alert. The CIA and Fsb secretly put together a joint task force to investigate assassinations and leaks going on around the world, deploying the team around the world to find the source of the new threat to world peace.

In Clandestine you play the parts of spy and hacker. One person is given a third person perspective of the spy, the other (Martin the Hacker) gets the hacker interface a blueprint style design, with which is »

First trailer and 3 posters for ‘Captain America: Civil War’

8 hours ago

Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.

Which is one hell of a change from the comic storyline! As someone who was essentially brought back into reading comics thanks to Brain Michael Bendis’ New Avengers and then the Civil War crossover event back in 2006-7 it will be interesting to see how that epic, and very political Marvel story will translate into a Summer blockbuster – after Winter Soldier I’m not worried about the politics of the film, »

How smart devices are revolutionising gaming

8 hours ago

Welcome to the age of the smart device. Ok, so it’s a rather belated welcome, smartphones have been operating since around 2007, but still they’ve a) never been as popular as today, and b) they are more advanced than ever before. In fact, we rely upon them. We run our lives through them: Calendars, diaries, emails. Day to day things. Now obviously, that’s all rather boring. One industry it is changing however – which is more than a little exciting – is gaming.

There was once a time when gaming was nothing more than hobby for teenage boys who locked themselves in their room, playing on the likes of Age of Empires and World of Warcraft. That’s a far cry from today, reaching a plethora of ages and a whole new gender, to the point now where there are more women gamers than there are men.

Twins Todd and Terry appear at first to be just two sweet boys, until one day one of them decides to take an axe to the face of a drive-in patron. When Todd is blamed for it and institutionalised, Terry gets to live a normal life. As the two reach childhood though the truth comes out as to who was to blame, though his mother (Louise Lasser) refuses to accept the truth.

The 80s are often looked back at nostalgically when it comes to horror, especially for slasher movies. Many imitated the success of films like Halloween, Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street, but failed to find the same success. Blood Rage is »

‘Jethro Live: 40 Years the Joker’ DVD Review

24 November 2015 6:02 AM, PST

Growing up I remember seeing a lot of comedians on television, one that always stood out was Jethro. With his “West Country” voice and his way of telling a story, he was always funny when he made an appearance. With Jethro Live: 40 Years the Joker he takes back to the stage for one last show.

When watching this comedy show, I noticed a few jokes that I’d heard before, and this should come as no surprise with really. This is something of a celebration of his tours, and his best jokes so it comes as no surprise. What may come as some surprise to some viewers though is the rudeness of some of his jokes. As is often the case with live shows for older comedians like Jethro they do tend to get a little ruder in their style and feature such subject as sex in their act. While »

‘Gravity Falls 2×19: Weirdmageddon II – Escape From Reality’ Review

24 November 2015 4:25 AM, PST

“Aaaand this is worse than the apocalypse.”

Escape From Reality is officially the penultimate episode of Gravity Falls. The series will come to an end sometime in early 2016 with an hour-long finale, not a cancellation but a planned conclusion by creator Alex Hirsch. Here’s hoping the last hurrah has a little more oomph than this one. Escape From Reality is a middling episode in every sense of the world, relying heavily on cameos and one-off jokes while mostly skirting substantive engagement with its central conceit and failing to develop tension in a scenario designed to capitalize on just that.

The flaw at the heart of Escape From Reality isn’t its premise, that Mabel is unwilling to leave a dream world in which her every wish is fulfilled, but that it erases prior character work in order to establish said premise. When Bill trapped Mabel we saw her realize her mistake. »

You worked with Paula Huidobro who is noted as being one of the best in her business of cinematography. Can you talk about your collaboration with her?

Paul Bettany: Yes I can. I can talk for hours about it. For me, pre-production was the worst part of this, it was the only aspect that I »

The Rise of Online Gaming

24 November 2015 2:01 AM, PST

No one quite expected online gaming to take off in the way it has. Back in the old days of dial up, the idea that we could play all sorts of games at the click of a button was far in the future, but now its swiftly becoming one of the most popular forms of entertainment. Now, we’re seeing the increasingly rich world of video games begin to incorporate a stronger online focus, including shifting their games to online platforms. This includes popular forms of gaming like the kind that you’d find in a casino.

As a result, the world of online gaming has acquired a diverse and thriving community of players with a diverse range of interests and preferences. But why is this exactly? Put simply, the progress that we’ve made in technology in the last ten years now means that almost anything is possible; all »

23 November 2015 2:57 PM, PST

The CW has released the first trailer for the eagerly anticipated new superhero show DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, a spin off from both Arrow And The Flash, which features Rip Hunter leading a time-traveling team of heroes to confront an unstoppable threat to the planet… and to time itself.

When heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat — one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known?

‘Ted 2: Extended Edition’ Blu-ray Review

23 November 2015 2:34 PM, PST

Stars: Mark Wahlberg, Seth MacFarlane, Amanda Seyfried, Jessica Barth, Morgan Freeman, Giovanni Ribisi, Sam J. Jones, Patrick Warburton, Michael Dorn, Bill Smitrovich, John Slattery, Liam Neeson, Dennis Haysbert, Patrick Stewart | Written by Seth MacFarlane, Alec Sulkin, Wellesley Wild | Directed by Seth MacFarlane

When it comes to a Seth MacFarlane film, the easiest way to work out whether you’ll like it is to ask the simple question, do you like Family Guy? That is the level of humour you can expect; and with Ted 2 a live-action episode of Family Guy is exactly what you get…

When Ted (Seth MacFarlane) and his wife Tami-Lynn (Jessica Barth) decide they want to have a baby, they soon run into problems. When they decide to adopt, the state becomes aware of Ted’s existence and he finds himself ruled to be property, and not a human being. With John’s (Mark Wahlberg) help »

‘WWE Survivor Series 2015′ Recap & Review

23 November 2015 1:30 PM, PST

As we head into this years Survivor Series there’s not only the loss of the current WWE champion to deal with but also an apparent terrorist threat to deal with too. No wonder the WWE let Lillian Garcia blast out “The Star Spangled Banner” as loud and as bold as as she possibly could!  That aside, It will be interesting to see where the 2015 Survivor Series is headed given the almost ramshackle last-minute nature in which the matches seem to have been put together… Of course what was planned on was the celebration of 25 years of the Phenom himself, The Undertaker. After all, 1990′s Survivor Series (yes, the event has been going that long) was the official debut of Mark Calaway’s now-iconic character in the WWE.

As always Spoilers if you haven’t seen the PPV yet…

After Garcia’s empassioned performance, the pay per view opens with »

In my original review of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies I said that I felt that some scenes felt a little rushed, so with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies - Extended Edition I was interested to see how the film would feel. All I will say is that I was pleasantly surprised…

With Smaug (Benedict Cumberbatch) defeated and the Dwarves held up in the Lonely Mountain armies from around Middle-Earth converge to do battle over both the gold and the strategically important landmark. With Gandalf (Ian McKellen »

But before the staid numbers-cruncher realizes what he’s getting into, it’s too late to get out, as his increasingly unpredictable new friend drags him through a world of shoot-outs, double-crosses and espionage that could get them both killed in more ways than he can count.
