Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness Review

Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness is a new four-part CG series set in the video game canon, much like the three CG movies released over the last decade and a bit. In fact given the four episodes run about an hour and a half total and were all released at the same time means this is in reality just a fourth CG movie… Is it good though? Well, within the confines of being a Resident Evil property? Let’s find out!

Doctor Who: Dragonfire Review

Season 24 dropped on Blu-ray last week so it’s time to review a random story from it. It would’ve been easy to pick Paradise Towers (*shudder*) or Delta and the Bannermen because they’re so obviously… erm, what they are in tone, but I decided instead to look at Dragonfire, which I actually enjoy where as many people don’t. Do I still enjoy it? Did I really pick Dragonfire because I want to put off re-watching Paradise Towers as long as I can?! Let’s find out! (well, let’s find out the former, the latter is left to your imagination!)

24: Day 3 – 1:00pm to 1:00am Review

24’s third season has quite the few changes from the previous one: new regular CTU characters, an entirely new plot taking place three years later (for the resolution to the Season 2 story see: 24 – The Game) and eventually it’s the first season to begin to trim down 24’s large cast. Before we get to the latter though we have our first core plot taking place neatly across 12 hours and while I could do without a story about a deadly virus potentially spreading across a populace I won’t hold that against it given it aired nearly two decades ago and all… Let’s take a look then!

Jupiter’s Legacy Review

I already had most of this review written when it was announced as not having been renewed for a second season, so even though I began to immediately think “what’s the point then?” I thought I’d finish it, if nothing else there isn’t a lot else to go up on the blog (beyond Doctor Who and anime) at the moment! So let’s look at the one and only season of Jupiter’s Legacy, yet another superhero show with a more mature theme, but at least avoids the “evil superman” trope that seems to be so commonplace… Let’s take a look!

Invincible – Season 1 Review

I was hesitant to watch Invincible because I’m a bit superhero’d out and couldn’t be bothered with yet another “sort of Justice League” and another over-bloody “mature” take on the genre (from Amazon!) but I eventually gave it a go and really enjoyed myself, in fact to the point where I’m looking forward to the next season! So let’s take a closer look…

24: Day 2 – 11:00pm to 8:00am Review

(My review of the first half of Day 2 can be found by clicking HERE)

How do you follow up a nuclear bomb exploding in the outskirts of LA? Well you don’t try and top it, instead you go to the other side of the thriller spectrum: espionage and suspense. While Day 2’s second half (well not quite half, but you know what I mean) has a lot of the same faults it does at least bring the season to a satisfying conclusion… only to leave a cliffhanger that ends up getting resolved in a subpar PS2 game. Yay! Let’s take a look…

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Review

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier feels like a new Captain America film but stretched out to six hours. In a lot of ways this is good, the two titular characters have more development here than they ever had in their film appearances, but sometimes it was a little bit too slow for its own good. What ratio from good and slow is it? Let’s find out!

24: Day 1 – 1:00pm to 12:00am Review

(My review of the first half of Day One can be found by clicking HERE)

After a stressful twelve hours it’s safe to say Jack Bauer and his family retire to their home, have a nice cuppa and go to sleep peacefully… What’s that? The show’s called “24”? Oh, in that case, they’re in for second course of twelve hours full of terrorist plots and kidnappings! Let’s take a look at how Day One ends, shall we?
