The Lego Movie DVD review

The Lego Movie DVD review

If we’re just brutally honest, The Lego Movie doesn’t work anywhere near as well on DVD as it did on the big screen. Unless you’ve got a giant flat screen with the latest 3D TV capabilities built into it, the down-scaled replay struggles to live up to the impressive visual style of the movie. Without(…)

Criticism for the prize and judging panel decisions aside, you can’t take(…)

Guardians Of The Galaxy review

Guardians Of The Galaxy review

We may have found our new favourite Marvel action hero movie, because Guardians Of The Galaxy literally has it all. It’s got comedy, action, amazing special effects and CGI, great characters, a strong storyline, awesome baddies and enough serious intent to bring it all together into the excellent sci-fi hit that it is. Star Lord,(…)

Cuckoo Series 2 review

Cuckoo Series 2 review

Cuckoo Series 2 finally made it’s way to BBC 3 earlier this week with a few new faces to replace Andy Samberg and Tamla Kari, but with Greg Davies back as the giant rock of the family and more great writing from Robin French and Kieron Quirke it’s as funny as ever. Bringing in Twilight(…)
