latest film, dvd, blu-ray, game, music & book reviews
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (PG)
The world's fastest hedgehog is back, in what is a fairly lame duck.
The Outfit (15)
Mark Rylance proves in this period drama why he's still a cut above the rest.
With fewer beasts and less magic, this third in the series is seriously lacking.
The Lost City (15)
Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum look like thy're having fun in this action comedy. Wish we did watching it.
Get Carter (18)
A classic Michael Caine flick gets the 4K restoration treatment.
Live A Live [Switch]
A classic Famicom titles gets a deserving fresh lick of jrpg paint.
Neon White [Switch, PC]
I feel the need, the need for some delicious speed runs.
As Dusk Falls [Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC]
An interesting cross-over between film and gaming that works well, for the most part.
Klonoa Phantasy Reverie Series [ PS5/4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Switch, PC]
A splendid retro outing for the cutesy Klonoa and the gang.

It's football Jeff, but not as we know it.
It was only a matter of time beofre this popular tower got its origin story.

An animated tale about the world's most famous teenage diarist, with a twist.
This Korean thriller is SO action packed. Can you handle it?
Your luck has truly run out if you have to watch this really poor animated flick.

Part autobiography, part self-help book, it's a curious mix that doesn't quite work.

Parsnips, Buttered by Joe Lycett
How to complain with style and panache.
