Review: Sonic the Hedgehog 2

After a pretty successful first outing, the sequel has some of the hero’s… overconfidence. Doctor Ivo Robotnik has returned from being marooned on an alien world, hellbent on destroying the blue hedgehog hero that put him there. But he isn’t alone; a new adversary joins him, while Sonic himself gains a new ally. This is…

Review: Spider-Man – No Way Home

A convergence of storylines, film studios, and forgotten screenplays, shouldn’t be this good. Peter Parker’s identity has been revealed to the world, and spins his life around. Seeing the consequences negatively affect his friends, he looks for ways to undo what happened. However, his desires threaten to rip the multi-verse apart. There’s a vocal minority…

Review: Mass Effect – Legendary Edition

As a huge, huge fan of the video game series Mass Effect, produced by Bioware, I feel it necessary to go in depth with my thoughts on the games and their recent “remastering”. The trilogy went through a lot, and changed a great deal between games, and today there is still division between fans as…

Review: Ghostbusters – Afterlife

A love letter of the highest magnitude on the P.K.E meter. Phoebe and Trevor are two teenage siblings torn away from their family home as their single-parent Callie falls further into debt. Their only option is to hold up in the abandoned farmhouse of Callie’s late father. But in the unfamiliar surroundings, Phoebe’s curiosity leads…

Banter: The Matrix Rebooted?

So the long rumoured Matrix 4 has got itself a trailer, and the Internet sways in its wake. Many questions have been raised, and theories are flying around fast. The film that pioneered the digital age at the turn of the millennium, and sold thousands of black trench coats, is coming back. But in what…

Review: Wonder Woman 1984

Staying true to yourself is the message ringing through this hit-and-miss sequel. Set several decades after the events of the first film, we see that Diana Prince has settled down to modern living, but still misses her one true love, Steve Trevor. But when an unremarkable looking stone emerges and appears to grant wishes, perhaps…

Banter: Star Wars – Ranked

Since “Skywalker Saga” has officially ended, and the franchise-to-end-all-franchises has met a sort of impasse, it seems right to rank the current theatrical released films. That is to say, we won’t be including the animated Clone Wars movie, or the two Ewok movies from the 1980s. Personal feelings definitely enter into construction of this list,…

Review: Frozen II

A film that has everyone’s attention looks to have cold feet when delivering substance… With Elsa established as Queen of Arendelle, everything seems well for our protagonists. But when Elsa starts to hear a voice in her head, calling to her, she risks everyone’s safety to discover an enchanted forest of legend. What truth will…

Review: Terminator – Dark Fate

This relentlessly unnecessary sequel may be better than the previous attempt, but that is not saying much. After Judgement Day was averted in 1997, the future was not significantly changed; a new, more deadly robot assassin is sent back, this time hunting Dani Ramos. Aided by an augmented soldier from the future, a world-weary mercenary…
