Board game review: Memoir 44

by Paul Joyce

A war game that is simple to pick up yet quite complex in the strategy. Only able to play a single game – but want to play again soon. Surely a good sign ūüôā

District 9 (Film review of 4/5)

by Paul Joyce

Great alien film, uniquely directed. Surpreme acting by Sharlto Copley as his body becomes the number one asset to the worlds biggest arms dealer. Its definitely worth a watch, whether you’re into aliens/sci-fi or not, although some of the scenes are probably not for the faint hearted as they do contain quite a bit of gore and nastyness.

Sci-Fi Movies – My Top 8 Films

by Paul Joyce

Science fiction has got to be my favourite genre for films and books; it allows for such a great diversity and scope, without people just instantly labelling it as ‘unrealistic’. Unfortunately people hear ‘sci-fi’ and think¬†stereotypically¬†of the Star Trek series, or the pile of Star Wars movies, when in reality there is so much more […]

Film: Casino Royale (Review of 5/5)

by Paul Joyce

Brilliant James Bond film, showing the true grit of a British 00 agent. Less cheese and more action than most of the previous Bonds. Daniel Craig really relaunches the Bond series with his first epic performance as the 007. Every film collection should contain this title.

Film: 3:10 to Yuma (Review of 4/5)

by Paul Joyce

Nothing beats a modern made Western, especially when it has Russel Crowe AND Christian Bale in it! How can 3:10 to Yuma be anything but a good movie? Dan Evans (Bale) is a family man running a cattle ranch with a bleak future, the farm and its land is withering away to nothing and soon […]

Kick Ass (Film review of 4/5)

by Paul Joyce

Funny and nerdy comic hero story that really impressed me. Johnson and Moretz play their parts brilliantly, while Cage performs well he doesnt steal the limelight for the little guys. Definitely worth a watch.

Star Trek (Film review of 5/5)

by Paul Joyce

Another great Abrams production. Everyone should watch this, and that’s a recommendation from a NON-trekkie. Wonderful scenes, great (if a little too complicated) story and brilliant acting.

Film: Day of the Dead

by Paul Joyce

Very disappointing, too many ‘exceptions’ to the rules here. Bad plot, characters and editing decisions make this a definite no-no! People should avoid this and just rewatch the original ‘Day of the Dead’ film that this one has just butchered the name of.

Film: Battle Los Angeles (Reviewed at 4/5)

by Paul Joyce

I went and saw Battle Los Angeles at the cinema and well, it definitely warrants a large screen and loud sound system! A friend of mine perfectly described this film as the result of blending Independence Day and Black Hawk Down together into one 2 hour action film. Battle Los Angeles starts off midway through […]
