Horns – Screen Savers

For this week’s Screen Savers, I had a plan. I’d watch a horrible film I had never watched, like Highlander II, but half an hour in I realised that my colleague wrote about it already. In the end, that was good because it meant I didn’t need to continue watching that thing. So I decided to revisit a […]

Rampage – Kavinsky

It’s no secret that I really like synthwave (or retrowave, or outrun, whatever you might call it), as many people I became slightly aware of it through Drive‘s soundtrack. It was what made me discover Kavinsky. So, when Kavinsky finally released his debut (and so far only) album, OutRun, I listened to it avidly. And […]

Rebecca Ferguson In Talks To Join Denis Villeneuve’s Dune

Every now and then there are talks about adapting Dune to the cinema. It was one of those projects that would get a bit of traction and then get into development hell again. At least that was until Denis Villeneuve came along. After Blade Runner 2049 he said his next project would be an adaptation […]

Neil Gaiman & Sarah Waters | Pull List

Whenever I get assigned a Pull List article, I picture people cringing. Mostly because I tend to get them assigned on weeks where I go overboard with books or comic books. This time it isn’t the case. I’ve only been back in the country for about five days, so I haven’t had much time to […]

The Good Place Gets Forking Great Chrome Theme

The Good Place is definitely one of the best TV shows to grace our screens recently. It’s a bold statement but it’s also true. Season three of The Good Place will begin shortly (September 27th in the US, which means September 28th for us on Netflix) and NBC has decided to promote the show in […]

New Life For Leatherface?

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is a franchise that has been languishing for the past few years. It hasn’t fallen into the straight to DVD hell that other franchises come through, but quality has taken a dip. Let alone how confusing it has been with so many sequels, prequels or reboots that choose to ignore […]

Suspiria Demands You Give Your Soul to the Dance

Give Your Soul To The Dance Years ago Luca Guadagnino announced that he’d be directing a remake of Dario Argento‘s masterpiece Suspiria. The original is one of my favourite horror films so I was doubtful. It’s creepy in terms of atmosphere and story, and it has a soundtrack by a progressive rock band (something more […]

Rick and Morty Show Us What They Got in New Teaser

I LIKE WHAT YOU GOT! When Rick and Morty got renewed for 70 more episodes there was some strategy behind it. Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland wanted to avoid having a long hiatus while they negotiated with Adult Swim. By having such a number of episodes confirmed that allows everyone to work on them without […]

Hocus Pocus Funko Pops Are Coming

The Sanderson sisters first graced us with their presence in 1993 when Hocus Pocus was released. And while the film wasn’t a box office hit back in the day it became a cult movie. Especially when it’s Halloween. And now, 25 years later the Sanderson sisters are back. In Funko Pop form! But that’s not […]

The Pillars of the Earth | Review

Several years ago Daedalic Entertainment announced they’d be adapting Ken Follett‘s The Pillars of the Earth into a graphic adventure . This came shortly after German publishing company Bastei Lübbe, who happen to be Follett‘s German publisher, became Daedalic’s majority shareholder. The Pillars of the Earth has been adapted into a miniseries and a board […]
