latest film, dvd, blu-ray, game, music & book reviews
Chaos Walking (15)
A great cast can't help this stuttering sci-fi flop.
Sound of Metal (15)
This drama starring Riz Ahmed isn't quite music to the ears.
The iconic cat and mouse dont look all that at home on the big screen.
Disney's latest is disappointingly flat, with the weirdest looking dragon yet.
This docunemtary may have you think if your life is real or just a digital facsimile.
Knockout City [Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS5/PS4, Switch PC]
It's dodgeball the video game as you take on all comers with your balls of fury!
It may an RPG lite, but this creative, colourful world is highly accessible.
New Pokémon Snap [Switch]
Gotta snap 'em all in this relaxing sequel.
Oddworld: Soulstorm [PS5/PS4, PC]
Abe is back to save his world again, in his most impressive adventure yet.
Outriders [Xbox Series X/S, PS, PS4, Xbox One, PC, Stadia]
A brainless third-person shooter with added RPG depth.
The Father (15)
Anthony Hopkins, with an Oscar-winning performance, shows just why he's the daddy of them all.
A wickedly over the top action flick that delivers both barrels.
Those demons get a tad more clever in this third entry in the spooky franchise.
Ben Whishaw shines in the darkest of dramas.
Robin Wright makes her directorial debut starring in this off the grid drama.
Not Your Muse by Celeste
A stunning debut by the already award-winning British singer.
The Long Goodbye by Riz Ahmed
Actor Riz Ahmed spits some mean bars for his debut album.
Why Me? Why Not by Liam Gallagher
Liam's Q and A session comes up with all the right answers.
Suspiria by Thom Yorke
Yorke goes to Hollywood with horrific results.
Wanderer by Cat Power
The queen of folk has her purr back.
Coal Black Mornings by Brett Anderson
Suede's front man beautifully recalls his life leading up to Britpop-dom.
Parsnips, Buttered by Joe Lycett
How to complain with style and panache.
Gironimo! by Tim Moore
Not quite nul points for otherwise brilliant travel humourist Moore's latest labour of love.
Who Is Tom Ditto? by Danny Wallace
Danny Wallace asks a question for his new novel. But will you care for the answer?
Apocalypse Now Now by Charlie Human
This fresh debut is a little bit like Grange Hill on crack with monsters. What's not to love?
