And we’re back! We had a very positive response to the first part of our multi-part series of the female characters who are especially awesome. If you missed the first 20 entries in the list you can read it here. Hopefully you’ll find more of your favourites on the list this week, and have more … Continue reading

Traumatised Childhood 1

Reviewing the Scary Movies That Traumatised My Childhood (Vol. 1)

As I sit on the couch getting into the Hallowe’en spirit (such as it exists Down Under) by watching some of our new favourite horror movies like The Cabin in the Woods I’ve been reflecting on the ones that scared the utter crap out of me as a child. Some of them are horror movies that someone … Continue reading


Review: ‘Gone Girl’ (2nd Opinion)

Plot:  Based on the bestselling novel by Gillian Flynn, former magazine writer Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) wakes up on the morning of his fifth anniversary to find his wife Amy (Rosamund Pike) missing among signs of a struggle.  After reporting the incident to the police, what begins as a simple disappearance soon escalates into a … Continue reading

The Stand 1

WTF Hollywood??? Make ‘The Stand’ into a trilogy!!!

I would characterize my literary relationship with Stephen King as somewhere on the level of Romeo and Juliet, although not quite as tame.  Saying he’s my favorite author is akin to saying Roland Deschain took awhile to get to the Dark Tower.  I can distinctly remember reading my first Stephen King novel, The Tommyknockers, when I was thirteen … Continue reading


Ranked: David Fincher

David Fincher is one of the few directors who I have seen every film of. He’s directed other things like music videos and some episodes of “House of Cards,” but I’m just focusing on the films, especially since he has a new one out, Gone Girl, which thankfully I have seen already, so it doesn’t get … Continue reading


The Pull List: 10/12/14

Must read comics of the week Batwoman #35 Batwoman is getting a team called The Unknowns. It includes her sister, Red Alice, Batman Rogue, Clayface, the demon, Etrigan, and Jewish vigilante, Ragman. Those are some damn interesting characters, and I think it might be Ragman’s New 52 debut (I could be wrong though). Death of … Continue reading


Cheap Game Tuesday: ‘Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag’

The Assassin’s Creeds franchise has become one of the most recognisable properties in pop culture. The distinctive white hooded, free running, wrist-bladed assassin became a selling point for the PS3 and X-Box 360 when they first arrived on the market, looking so lovely on our new HD home entertainment systems that it became a best seller … Continue reading


Shared Universal Monster-Verse Director Wishlist

In case you haven’t been paying attention, Universal Studios wants to get in on the shared universe trend that is taking the world by storm since Marvel made a billion dollars. I guess, they kind of were head of the curve since the Wolfman eventually met Frankenstein and they all had a run in with … Continue reading

Top 100 Women of Pop Culture

The Top 100 Women in Pop Culture! (Part 1)

A while ago we wrote an epic ten part list of our 100 favourite graphic novels. We liked it and the feedback we got was very positive. I though we’d do video games but fortunately we have writers who have great ideas, and we loved Jes’ suggestion that we could look at the 100 greatest … Continue reading


Movie Review: ‘The Drop’

Directed by: Michaël R. Roskam Starring: Tom Hardy, James Gandolfini, Noomi Rapace, and Matthias Schoenaerts Plot: A local bartender finds himself at odds with local criminals. Review: I feel like I could be biased towards this movie because this is exactly the kind of gangster movies I like. The guys in the pinstripes constantly talking about loyalty with an … Continue reading
