How do I even begin talking about a game that brought me so much joy?
The first game that I played in a series that has never been anything less than impressive.
A game that IGN rates as the greatest SNES game of all time. Click this link if you don’t believe me:
There’s no doubt about it. There is going to be a lot said about this game, some of which many might even find controversial. (more…)

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

Director: David Fincher
Starring: Daniel Craig, Rooney Mara, Christopher Plummer, Stellan Skarsgard and Robin Wright
Released: 2011

I haven’t read the books.
I haven’t seen the original version of the film.
And I had no idea what it was about until I actually sat down and watched it.
I dropped the ball there.
And I apologise. You will receive your humbly apologetic custard creams in the post shortly. (more…)

Midnight In Paris

Director: Woody Allen
Starring: Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams, Kathy Bates, Michael Sheen, Corey Stoll, Tom Hiddleston, Marion Cotillard, and Adrien Brody.
Released: 2011

Woody Allen has a tendency to associate the emotion of love with locations in his films. It is obvious in the likes of Manhattan and in Vicky Christina Barcelona. It seems strange, then, that only now does he make a romantic comedy set in the city of love itself, that of the beautiful Paris, France. And whereas Manhattan and Vicky deal with everyday romance, Midnight in Paris is very much a fairy tale, both in tone and content. (more…)

Developer: Level-5

Platform: DS

Release Date: Nov 2008

Well, what better way to pass the time than with a casual puzzle. Forget looking in something as primitive as a book though. Now it comes in the format of a DS game (and as such, costs more…. Awww yeah). (more…)

Mission: Impossible III

Director: J.J. Abrahms
Starring: Tom Cruise, Michelle Monaghan, Ving Rhames, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Simon Pegg and Phillip Seymour Hoffman
Released: 2006

What do we do when we fall? Well, we stand back up again of course! A very apt metaphor for the Mission: Impossible trilogy as it currently stands. It stood proudly with the original, fell awkwardly with the sequel, and then, thankfully, stood itself back up again. Though, admittedly, it fell down three flights of really hard stairs with Mission: Impossible 2, so its understandable that the third film in the franchise is going to be a bit more bruised and battered than the original.
