OSCARS 2017: The Winners!

The OSCARS 2017 took place overnight. The nominations are here, and the winners are as follows, with the Best Picture firstly mistakenly read out by Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway as La La Land, when he was given the wrong envelope, and the error was only rectified AFTER the cast and crew were on stage […]

Logan – the first official X-Men 15-certificate theatrical movie

Logan is the third and (allegedly) final solo outing for Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, and takes places in the near future, where the aging character and the always-old Professor X (Patrick Stewart) have to protect a young female clone of Wolverine, Laura Kinney (Dafne Keen), from an evil organisation, while dark forces are afoot… Today, […]

Hyper Sentinel – a new retro arcade shoot-em-up Kickstarter

Hyper Sentinel is a forthcoming arcade shoot-em-up for ’80s retro gaming fans which has recently been launched as a Kickstarter courtesy of Rob Hewson and Andrew Hewson, who fans of videogaming back in the day will remember as Hewson Consultants, responsible for two of my all-time ZX Spectrum favourites. Dom Robinson Reviewer of movies, videogames […]

John Wick Chapter 2 CENSORED by 23 seconds

John Wick Chapter 2 is out this Friday in cinemas and I didn’t even check to look whether this might be censored as the first one wasn’t and so I wasn’t expecting it here, either, especially since the violence is mostly cartoon-style. Hence, rather than allow us an uncut 18-certificate, distributors Warner Bros have sanctioned […]

Peter Capaldi leaving Doctor Who in the Christmas 2017 episode

Peter Capaldi has announced he’s leaving Doctor Who in this year’s Christmas episode, but this will come as no surprise. Showrunner Steven Moffat, who showed such great promise with episodes like Blink, but he gave us the interminably dull Clara-boyfriend Danny Pink, then severely let us down with many a lacklustre episode, not least in […]

The Last Jedi – The Star Wars Episode VIII subtitle

The Last Jedi. It’s the subtitle for Star Wars Episode VIII. The film directed by Looper and Breaking Bad‘s Rian Johnson. And starring Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Harrison Ford… maybe. Then Christmas will see the Young Han Solo movie. Then Episode IX will follow in Christmas 2019. “But what does the title […]

Nintendo Switch: It’s Mario! It’s Zelda! It’s everything we’ve seen before including retro games like Sonic Mania. Retailing at $299 in the US, it’ll be £279 in the UK, and for that you’ll get the Switch console, the Switch dock, the Joy-Con left/right controller pieces that slide onto the side of the console, plus the […]

The Grand Tour – disastrous interview on The One Show

The Grand Tour airs on Amazon Prime this Friday, and then in weekly episodes, and tonight, James May and Richard Hammond returned to the BBC to promote it, but there’s obviously a conflict after their tenure at Top Gear came to an end, even though that was at the hands (and fists) of Jeremy Clarkson, […]
