Yes, ‘FRIENDS’ Fans, Ross Geller is Problematic

Starting out in the mid-90s and running over ten seasons, twenty years later Friends is still the theme of countless pub quizzes and the source of inspirational quotes printed on cheap Primark t-shirts.  Friends fans have watched Ross pine for Rachel for almost two seasons, celebrated their first kiss, and had debates about whether they […]Read More

Interview: Haley & Michaels

Country charm and fated romance, tangled in music sheets and coffee talks: husband and wife duo Haley & Michaels recently released their single ‘Hail Mary’ in the UK. I caught them for a quick telephone interview where we talked about how they met, pregnancy and lockdown, and their love for country music. If you’re making […]Read More

Why Disney Can’t Remake Magic

Since 2010, Disney has slowly been releasing more and more ‘live-action remakes’ of its classic films. In the wake of 2019’s The Lion King, and with Mulan (2019) soon to be making an appearance on our screens, I have to wonder: who are these remakes for? The early live-action and photorealistic remakes genuinely intrigued me. […]Read More

The Top 10 Episodes of Doctor Who

As the 10th Season of the Revival Series of Doctor Who is drawing to a close, with what is bound to be a kick ass finale (Mondasian Cybermen, come on guys!), I thought it fitting to take a look back on some of the best episodes to ever grace our screens over the past 12 […]Read More

Film Review: A Monster Calls

Patrick Ness’ short novel A Monster Calls, itself based on an idea by Siobhan Dowd, finally made the leap from concept to cinema blockbuster in late 2016/early 2017. Bittersweet is a term which will be re-visited in this review; Siobhan sadly passed away from terminal breast cancer in 2007, tragically never witnessing either the Carnegie or […]Read More

My Life in Games: Chris Parbery

In the summer of 1994, my parents went to a yard sale and came home with something that looked a lot like our VCR. I couldn’t have been less interested, until my Dad turned it on and put that perfectly rectangular controller in my hands, and I found out that this was no ordinary machine. […]Read More

Game Review: Mafia III

Release Date: October 7, 2016 ERSB Rating: Rating Pending When I heard that Mafia 3 was getting made, I was pretty ecstatic. I had thoroughly enjoyed Mafia 2 for what it was and felt it was time for a new open world crime game after playing GTA to death. I didn’t hype myself up for it though. […]Read More

Game At A Glance: Broforce

Title: Broforce Developer: Free Lives What I Think: Broforce is an arcade-style shooter based on explosions and caricature, with the player using heroes based on various characters from classic action movies. When I say “based”, I mean they’ve added ‘bro’ to their name in some way, however tenuous. Broforce is a comedy game that’s actually fun to play; […]Read More
