‘Luke Cage: Complete First Season’ Review

26 October 2016 5:52 AM, PDT

Based in Harlem, Luke Cage, Netflix’s latest Marvel show, has a different feel to Daredevil and Jessica Jones but lives in the same universe as the two. Does he have enough strength to not only save Harlem though but to stand out in his own show?

After the events of Jessica Jones, we find Cage (Mike Colter) in Harlem trying to live a quiet life. Tragedy pulls him back to the superhero life though and he’s forced to take on Cottonmouth (Mahershala Ali) while all the time trying to keep his secret a past from the ever vigilant Misty Knight (Simone Missick).

In many ways Luke Cage is familiar territory, there are obvious stylistic references to Daredevil and plenty of teases of the “Lawyer” we know and love. The main focus of the show though is to celebrate the and give a voice to the streets of Harlem. »

‘Rivers of London: Black Mould #1′ Review

25 October 2016 5:58 AM, PDT

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Colour by Luis Guerrero | Published by Titan Comics

The Rivers of London books are fast becoming among my favourites currently being published. Well written and drawn, great characters and stories with a nice blend of humour and action, and dipping in and out of different genres as and when required. Bit of police procedural here, bit of magic there, a little dash of noir. Like I said, fun. The last story arc was especially fun because, Russian witches and fake woodland sprites aside, it started to develop the character of Lesley May, previously Peter Grant’s partner but now working with Peter’s enemy The Faceless Man. Peter of course is an office for The Metropolitan Police and, er, a trainee wizard. You knew that right?

This story arc, amusingly titled ‘Black Mould’ (hey, even I can’t fight that »

Given that Halloween is fast-approaching, I thought I’d put together a number of listicles couting down some of my favourite films to watch this horrorday season. First up are my picks for the ten best 80s horror films on Neflix.

Netflix has a great list of spooky titles available on the service including the likes of TV shows such as Stranger Things and Black Mirror: Season 3 (reviewed here), and new movies like Spellbinder, The Intruders and Felony; all of which join the likes of Carrie, Paranormal Activity and The Ring. It’s safe to say that when it comes to choosing a movie this Halloween, Netflix has you covered!

So, on to my list. In no particular order:

‘Ash vs Evil Dead 2×04′ Review

24 October 2016 6:12 AM, PDT

Dealing with the fallout from last week’s Ash vs Evil Dead, episode four leaps straight into the action. What it also does though is fall into the trap of being an episode about progression. A stop-gap between a major plot point, and hopefully one to come in the next episode.

With the Delta still possessed and on the move, Ash (Bruce Campbell) and Chet (Ted Raimi) give chase with Pablo (Ray Santiago) trapped in the Delta with the Necronomicon. Ruby (Lucy Lawless) and Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo) look to get business sorted, as they go after Ruby’s evil spawn.

When I call this an episode about progression, it’s because it doesn’t offer that much to offer anything new, but teases what is to come in the future. What we do get though is plenty of gore to keep the fans happy, as well as some cheesy scenes »
