Hey there! It’s the new Critapocalypse Podcast! Films reviewed this week are Attack on Titan, Fantastic Four and Edge of Tomorrow. We also talked a bunch of (mostly) free to play games, because we’re poor. Those games are No Man’s Run, Spooky’s House of Jump Scares, How To Survive, Pac-Man 256 and Fallout Shelter. No TV reviews this week because we appear to have sworn of episodic entertainment. Click below for the Soundcloud version, which you can download, and the time codes for all the reviews.

Been a bit slow on the reviews recently. Apologies for that. Been away and had all sorts of video related Youtubey stuff taking up my time. That said, I did purchase 3 films with the intent of getting some actual interesting films to review on here. The first was Terminator 2, which I reviewed a couple of weeks back before this slight hiatus. Today it’s the second film in the form of Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior. If you’ve been reading this site for a while you’ll probably know that I’m a bit of a nerd for Mad Max films. After this one I’ll only have Beyond Thunderdome left to cover, which I hope to get done before that Mad Max game is released next week. So, let’s get on with it shall we?
There’s the new Critapocalypse Podcast video version. Episode 22 features film reviews in the form of Pixels and Wet Hot American Summer. We discuss games such as Rocket League, Life Is Strange Episode 4. Rare Replay, Shadow Warrior and The Stanley Parable. Also, Matt talked about his new TV. So I guess we do tech reviews now.

After watching the first Terminator film recently I developed a hankering to watch its sequel. For some reason I didn’t own a copy though. This was a troubling development as I was unsure how I could allow myself to reach the age of 33 without a copy of T2. Well, do not fret, for I have fixed this egregious error and have purchased for myself a blu-ray copy of the film, along with copies of Mad Maxes The Road Warrior and Beyond Thunderdome. So, without further ado… here’s my review of Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
So Wet Hot American Summer is one of them there cult films all the cool people love these days but didn’t bother seeing when it came out. Probably because everyone hated it then. But tastes change and films can, sometimes, resonate more years later. I never really knew much about Wet Hot American Summer other than it having a cast full of now well known faces and for being the film with Bradley Cooper’s hot gay sex scene. You can go search Youtube for that if you like. Other than those points there’s little to the film I knew of, so I figured it was about time I checked it out. Also, there’s a series based on it on Netflix and I need something to watch when I’m done with It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia. Anyway, on with the review.

Oh it feels good to watch an actual real film for once. Not a superhero thing, or a superhero thing masquerading as an action flick. Just an actual film with people talking and themes being explored as opposed to just being lightly touched upon. Granted, I’ve watched a sci-fi film. Not exactly a million miles away from the relatively mindless genre wank I’ve been staring at recently. Ex Machina is also one of my favourite types of sci-fi. By which I mean the type that could have easily been an episode of The Outer Limits, The Twilight Zone or, maybe, even The Scary Door. So, yeah… here’s my review of Alex Garland’s directorial debut, Ex Machina.
