TOP 10 SEGA MEGA DRIVE

Whazzzzzzzuuuuuppp! Wait, what? We have to go even further back? Ok, well I can't quite find an advertising slogan to greet you with from the early 90's but yes it's time for us to delve right into nostalgia as we proudly present you our combined Top...

REFORM DOVES

Have you heard the rumours? No, us neither. We've heard hints of Doves in Jimi Goodwin's solo work and the Williams' twins Black Rivers album, both fine records in their own right. But when you fuse them together it gives us something unique. Is it h...

DOCUFILM REVIEW: WHITNEY

We were lucky enough to attend a preview of the docufilm 'Whitney' earlier this week. Having heard good things the film opens with the shiny pop of Whitney Houston and exactly how I first knew her. Flashes of the video 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody', ...

CLASSIC SIMPSONS – SEASONS 2 TO 8

How can we possibly have a website about pop culture without talking about The Simpsons. Arguably they had an impact on the 90's like The Beatles did on the 60's. A mark of their success could be measured on marketing, for you couldn't move in a supe...

TEN MINUTES OF UP

Jesus Christ the Lord, Mary & Joseph. That is blasphemy ladies and gentlemen and I apologise if I offended you, but fuck me this is difficult to write about never mind to watch it. It's beautiful first and foremost. 10 minutes of animation tel...

COMIC BOOK MOVIES LEAGUE TABLE

It's a debate for the ages, one which will never truly be decided, but we're gonna have a stab at doing so in the fairest way possible - which is the best modern day comic book movie? We all know it's The Dark Knight, but how to justify such a thing?...

THE MATRIX: WHAT WENT WRONG?

What went wrong with The Matrix sequels? First of all, what went right? Well the freeway chase, as long as it is, is fantastic. Very cool idea with the apparating twins too which played out some awesome scenes. As unreal as it felt that you...

DELAYED REVIEW: ERIN BROCKOVICH

Before sitting down to watch Erin Brockovich for the first time (18 years after it's release) I asked my wife if it was going to be a "difficult watch". She knows exactly what I meant by this and most of the time it's simply "will it make me cry?". I...
