Oh my God I’m actually reviewing a new release film…. about 10 days after release. Yeah I’m late but I couldn’t exactly not cover a James bond film. Especially after I took on the foolish task of reviewing every Bond film in the space of one month a few years back. Now, I may go into a few spoilers in this review. It’s kinda hard to not talk about certain issues or strengths of the film without going into them. So that’s your spoiler warning. Suffice to say, Spectre is a pretty solid bond film. The third best Daniel Craig film, sure, but it’s way ahead of Quantum of Solace. So, let us proceed with the somewhat spoilery review.

So I normally get a Halloween film reviewed on October 31st. It is the logical day to do such a thing after all. This year I was a little strapped for cash and was a little late buying myself a copy of Halloween 5. I ordered it a week before Halloween. It just turns out that Zoverstocks, the seller I purchased it from on Amazon, likes to wait 3 days to dispatch and then uses super slow mail to deliver. So here we are, 3 days late, with my traditional Halloween night review of Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers. Click the link below yo!
If you’ve ever seen the films I pick out for my milestone reviews you’ll be aware that I have a bit of a love for really bad movies. A particular kind of really bad movie. The ones that are joyfully bad made with pure passion or batshit insanity. I’ve never reviewed the 1996 Island of Dr. Moreau but it would fall into the batshit insane category of bad movie. The reason for this is because the film was made under batshit insane conditions by a number of batshit insane people. Lost Soul is a documentary about the making of that film and man… you will not be ready for how crazy this film’s production got. I think, after watching this film, this may be the most nightmarish production I’ve ever heard of. So, for me rambling about how mental the whole story behind The Island of Dr. Moreau is, click the link below.
Oh man! Here’s the latest Critapocalypse podcast where myself and Matt reviewed a bunch of things and stuff that we saw and did over the last 2 weeks. Film Reviews this week include The hunger games Mockingjay Part 1, The Visit, the hive and possibly something else… I kinda lost track of what matt was rambling on about during that part. Matt also said words about that gravity Falls show and then claimed Steven Universe wasn’t good. The fool. We also discussed a bunch of new games such as Orbit, Extreme Exorcism, Game Corp DX, Mighty no.9’s demo and Super Mario maker. Matt also talked about Valiant Hearts, which we all played last year.

Would you look at that. I’m all up to date on them Hunger Games films what the teens like to watch and stuff. Maybe I’ll even go see part 2 in the cinema. It’s been a bit of a rocky ride. I really liked the first film, despite it’s lack of originality, but man I wasn’t keen on Catching Fire. The film… not the act of catching fire itself. I felt like the second film was entirely pointless as nothing really happens. It was essentially another Hunger games event with people saying Katniss has inspired rebellion without showing rebellion or even her developing to a point where she grows into her role as a figurehead for the movement. So, as I found the previous films to be diametrically opposed in quality, what did I think of the first half of Mockingjay? Click my link below to read my words about it.
Here’s the new Critapocalypse podcast. Bit late postign it because I was getting quite distracted by games and stuff. Seriously, buy Assault Android Cactus. I reviewed it in this episode of the podcast too! Anyway, film reviews this week include Cop Car, Nightcrawler, American Ultra and Christian Mingle: The Movie. Games reviewed include the previously mentioned Assault Android Cactus but also Shovel Knight: A Plague of Shadows, Frozen Free Fall Snowball Fight, Deer God and Tomb Raider Definitive Edition.

Yeah, I know. It’s been, like, two weeks since my last review. I haven’t had much chance to watch films recently, what with Mad Max and Metal gear Solid V releasing in the same week. Thanks for that games publishers. Except Konami. FucKonami. Anyway, I got around to watching that Nightcrawler film everyone was raving about last year. I’m so behind the times. Why are you even reading this? Anyway, below is what I thought of this damn fine and mostly exceptional film. Ermm… I guess that sentence was also my thoughts on it… Click the link… please?
