Horror: 13 Game of Death

This intense horror / thriller from Thailand really surprised me. Despite the absurdity of the plot, which revolves around an online ‘reality’ game which must be something of a logistical nightmare to pull off, 13 GAME OF DEATH is actually a very entertaining, albeit stomach churning, movie. Pusit finds himself at the end of his […]

2008: With English Subtitles

Something strange happened this year. Not just to me, but to my friends it seems too. I hope that this epiphany happened to others as well, because it makes me pretty happy. I was contemplating writing a wrap up of the year — you know the sort of thing that you do at this time […]

TOP5: Time Trips

Having recently been recommended the Spanish Sci-Fi thriller LOS CRONOCRIMENES (Timecrimes) — which I throughly enjoyed — I’ve once again had good old time travel adventures on my mind. And given that I’m currently working on the next episode of Remote Viewing and haven’t had a chance to sit down and put another review together, […]

EOL: Survive the fall of mankind

Despite all the work I do associated with video games I seldom get the time to actually play them. Hell, I don’t even own a current gen’ console and the PC that sits under my desk has hardly seen any use in the two and a bit years that it’s been sitting there (so, by […]

Posting live from the eGames expo and Digital Lifestyle Show!

Sporror: King of the Hill

Not to be confused with the animated series, or the 1993 Steven Soderbergh film…. or the various other features and shorts to have used the same name, this KING OF THE HILL is a Spanish horror-action-thriller — Sporror? Spaction? Spriller? — with a minimal cast. Originally titled ‘El Rey de la montaña’, King of the […]

EOL: 29 stitches (update)

Not completely with it at the movement, so if this post makes any kind of sense at all then it’s purely an accident… much like when any post here at EOL makes some kind of sense, I guess. As some of you know, I had my second (left) cornea transplant on Monday, and I’m happy […]

Series: Dollhouse Doesn’t Need Saving

Normally I try not to fly off the handle too often here on EOL, but there’s something going on at the moment that’s frustrating the hell out of me. Sadly, the source of that frustration is something that should have been nothing but awesome news: The new Eliza Dushku / Joss Whedon series, Dollhouse. I’m […]

EOL: 10 Years of Crap

It has been a long while since I completely re-designed elroyonline, mostly because the issues with my eyes have meant that sort of thing takes a back seat. That’s not to say that the site hasn’t changed over time, it has! The background, fonts and colours have slowly morphed, but the layout has remained pretty […]

Iron Man: Giant Killer Robots

This may come as a complete surprise to anyone who has visited this site more than once, but I don’t spend my whole day refreshing the Marvel comics website. However, after paying a random visit there today it may just become something that I get into the habit of doing. Another thing I’m not usually […]
