‘Wulverblade’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

It would seem, given the amount of games hitting the market or announced as “in production”, that the side-scrolling beat ‘em-up is currently undergoing something of a resurgence. Back in the era of the Snes and Neo Geo you couldn’t move for such games, but with the advent of 3D graphics these types of games suddenly died a death. Yes, there were 3D examples of the genre, with games such as Deadly Strike, Final Fight Streetwise and pretty much Any of the Musuo/Warriors titles, but traditional 2D side-scrollers seemingly had gone the way of the dodo. That was until the rise of indie developers and the penchant for more “retro” titles – which finally made their way from the likes of Steam to home consoles, in particular the PS4 and now Nintendo’s Switch; which has surprisingly embraced indie games with a passion – probably to fill the gap of

‘Alien: Covenant’ Blu-Ray Review

The Movie:

In concept, ‘Alien: Covenant‘ is what ‘Prometheus‘ should have been. In many regards, the film is a vast improvement over it’s predecessor. It’s also better than many people are giving it credit for. Instead of focusing more on the philosophical aspects of the story, this film is a straight up Alien movie, and that’s a good thing. Unlike it’s predecessor, ‘Alien: Covenant‘ feels like it’s a return to form for both the franchise itself, as well as director Ridley Scott. Set roughly ten years after the events of ‘Prometheus’, the film is both a sequel to that, as well as a prequel to all of the previous Alien movies. But this is also part of the problem with the film, that it can’t quite juggle all of these aspects while also telling it’s own unique story. Despite a few minor flaws,

Leonardo DiCaprio Is Da Vinci in Upcoming Biopic

  • MovieWeb
Well, this just seems perfect. It has been officially announced that Leonardo DiCaprio will play the painter/scientist and fellow Leonardo, Leonardo da Vinci in a biopic based off of author Walter Isaacson's book called, you guessed it, Leonardo da Vinci. As it turns out, Paramount won an intense bidding war for the project over Universal who was reportedly bringing out the big guns to acquire the biopic. DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson will produce the movie for their Appian Way banner.

Deadline reported the news while also sharing that DiCaprio was allegedly named after da Vinci. The story goes that DiCaprio's mother was looking at a Leonardo da Vinci painting in Italy while pregnant with the superstar actor. Legend has it that DiCaprio kicked for the first time while his mother was looking at the painting and gained a name. It is not clear what painting that his mother was looking at,
