Review: “Gundam The Origin V” – When It Feels Like The World Has Gone Insane

by Grant Whiteon February 20, 2018
It’s been over a year since the last The Origin review. Some of that is production drama (the original director was let go over misconduct, delaying the next episode) and some of it is down to odd release choices. With the closure of the mostly Sunrise owned Daisuki streaming service late last year, the choice […]
Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Review: “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” – Luke Be A Jedi Tonight

by Grant Whiteon December 15, 2017
When last we left the Star Wars Saga, Rey had finally tracked down Luke Skywalker to request his aid in fighting the First Order. So in a surprise to her and quite likely the audience, at the start of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Luke wants no part of this war and resents the legend […]

Cars 3

Review: “Cars 3” Blu-ray Reaches the Front of the Pack

by Classic Speedyon November 20, 2017
Cars 3, much like the main character in it, did some soul-searching. The first Cars, while a fairly predictable film in its storytelling, worked due to its main character’s development, the large and varied cast, the re-imagining of an ordinarily human world as a cars-only world, and its worthwhile moral. The second film went in […]

Call of Duty: World War II – Streamlined Multiplayer, Epic Zombie Mode Highlight Best COD In Years

by James Harveyon November 13, 2017
After flinging the franchise into the future with Infinite Warfare, Activision takes Call of Duty back to familiar territory with Call of Duty: World War II. Foregoing future tech and alien landscapes, players are now flung back into the hellish landscape of World War II, and the results are fantastic. While the short single-player campaign is […]

Review: “Your Name” UK IMAX Theatrical Release: Simply Unforgettable

by Grant Whiteon August 21, 2017
I’m a bit late to the party on Your Name.  Lauded the world over, the Makoto Shinkai film received a limited run here in the UK last year but sadly not in any venues local to me. Though I may seem lazy in the face of an associate who went up and down the country […]
DC Super Hero Girls

Toonzone @ MCM London Comic Con May 2017 – “DC SuperHero Girls: Intergalactic Games” Review

by Grant Whiteon June 1, 2017
Comic book superheroes have never been a stranger to other media. In fact it’s likely that many of us encountered certain heroes by way of cartoons, toys or movies long before we had the chance to read one of their paper outings. My Batman fandom certainly started with repeats of the Adam West show after […]

The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild Review (Wii U) – Part 2

by Eileen Cruzon March 23, 2017
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is exceptionally well done. The graphics are awe-inspiring and gameplay is solid and reliable. The game doesn’t give you enough opportunities to grow attached to the characters vital to story progression, but it does do an excellent job of otherwise achieving the illusion that Link exists in […]

Review: “Gundam Reconguista In G Complete Blu-ray Set (UK Edition)” – The Future’s Bright

by Grant Whiteon November 23, 2016
The current partnership between Sunrise and Anime Limited for Gundam in the UK was foreshadowed by the surprise licensing of Reconguista in G in 2014. One of two television series created for the franchise’s 35th anniversary, the 26-episode series saw the return of original creator Yoshiyuki Tomino as writer and director. Stewardship has been handed […]
