Review: Man of Steel (DVD/BR)

The Review: Man Of Steel is an enigma of a film. It’s was far removed from Richard Donner’s Superman The Movie as Batman Begins is from Batman & Robin. Yet unlike Batman Begins (from director Christopher Nolan, whose grubby finger prints are all over this film), Man Of Steel isn’t an …

Review: The Worlds End (DVD/BR)

The Review: (SPOILER FREE) – First Shaun, then Hot Fuzz, now The World’s End – ye, finally, the nine-years-in-the-making “Cornetto” trilogy pants, puffs and collapses at the finishing line with this comedy about a bunch of mates who reunite via their goofy, oddball (and rather annoying) friend Gary King, played by …

Review: WWE Night of Champions 2013 (DVD/BR)

The Review:  I thought Night of Champions was an acceptable pay-per-view, but it was of lower quality than a number of other pay-per-views that WWE has produced this year. This has probably been WWE’s weakest PPV effort of the year, but that’s not to say that it was bad, as …

Review: Mccullin (DVD/BR)

The Review: To be honest I have a soft spot for documentaries in general (despite my reputation as a lover a tat & blockbusters).  So whilst I’m often impressed, I’m rarely wowed.  But with a powerful story and captivating subject matter, Mccullin managed to do just that.  And more. The story: Celebrated …
