DVD Review: Deadly Crossing (aka True Justice: Deadly Crossing)

DVD Review: Deadly Crossing (aka True Justice: Deadly Crossing)
If you’ve ever wanted a version of CSI Miami where, instead of David Caruso solving crimes and breaking out cringeworthy one-liners, Horatio Caine were played by Steven Seagal and simply snapped the wrists of every perp remotely connected to the case before pummelling them into the concrete, then...

DVD Review: Little Big Soldier

DVD Review: Little Big Soldier
The anti-war message that the film adopts is occasionally muddled, and the more melancholy tone of the third act is a little at odds with the slapstick that appears throughout, but even in its weaker moments, it’s kept alive by the heart and soul injected by Jackie Chan’s wonderfully rounded...

PS3 Review: Shaun White Skateboarding
For old-school fans of the Jet Set Radio games, Shaun White Skateboarding is the closest you’re likely to get to a new entry in the series any time soon. Though it takes the bare mechanics of Skate and the challenge-based structure of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, Ubisoft’s new pro boarder game...

DS Review: Doctor Who: Evacuation Earth

DS Review: Doctor Who: Evacuation Earth
Evacuation Earth is the best Doctor Who game yet, and though that may sound like faint praise considering the slim and not-exactly-stellar competition, it’s genuinely a worthwhile, fun game replete with entertaining, diverse puzzles, a well-written story and some superb voice acting. It’s just...

Blu-Review: Spirits of the Dead

Blu-Review: Spirits of the Dead
Like most anthologies, Spirits of the Dead suffers from being uneven in quality, with Metzengerstein and William Wilson failing to reach the inspired heights of Fellini’s closing segment. Even so, Toby Dammit is the main attraction; a mesmerizing mini-masterpiece, Fellini’s short is essential...
