Rick and Morty Season 1

While anyone is yet to throw massive amounts of money at me to make a TV show — or anything else for that matter — I’m going say things in this post that are probably way off base. To make matters worse I’m going to make out like they’re accurate or based in some kind […]

Black Mirror – The Collection

Back in 2008 Charlie Booker’s mini-series DEAD SET attempted to do what all good (and most of the bad) zombie stories do: Wrap some social commentary in a tale full of blood and guts and undead shenanigans. For the most part Dead Set succeeded. It’s an extremely enjoyable zombie series with the added bonus of […]

Regular Show Slack Pack – The Complete 1st Season.

If you’ve poked around this site at all, or if you’ve accidentally clicked that link up there titled ‘Powers Cosmic,’ you’ll probably still be in therapy over your inability to come to terms with the time you lost watching the animated series that I wrote, animated, and voiced (along with some mates) over the last […]

Adventure Time – The Complete First Season

Sharing the house with a 4 and a half year old means that you hear about ‘Trying new things’ a lot. Whatever those ‘new things’ are — be it a new vegetable, a new pair of shoes, a new TV show or movie — there’s also a very good chance that you’re going to hear […]

Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope

In a lot of ways documentary is the responsible older sibling of film making.

Horror: The Silent House

I don’t profess to be as hard as nails in any respect, so when I say that horror movies don’t scare me I’m not trying to sound all badass. The fact is that I enjoy the hell out of a good horror movie. The closer I get to the edge of my seat the more […]

DVD: The Lost Thing

Fifteen minutes. That’s how long this movie is. In that short time it manages to wrap you in the gorgeous world that it creates, far more so than many of the feature length movies I’ve seen in my time. Depending on how you choose to interpret it, The Lost Thing could be a bleak tale […]

Blu-Ray: The 5th Element

Stuff sneaks up on you. Like, while watching THE FIFTH ELEMENT blu-ray I realised that I’ve quietly stopped revisiting the movies that I love. When I was a kid I’d watch the same movie over and over again. It was like I was trying to perform some strange repetition experiment. Honestly, if you made prisoners […]

Series: Titan Maximum

There are very few advantages to having pretty much sucked at everything I’ve tried to do in my life, but at least I’ve avoided ever having to face that most daunting of things: The follow up [whatever]. Lets face it, when you’re a nobody no body expects the next thing you do to be brilliant. […]

Series: Moral Orel

When it comes to delicate subjects, religion is probably at the top of the list. So, when treading ground which may be seen as possibly offensive to someone else’s belief system you’ll usually find that the matter is handled with kid gloves. The game Assassins Creed opens with a disclaimer, noting that the game was […]
