Film: Chef vs Burnt

By James I love cooking. I love food. In fact it was my love of cooking and food that led me to becoming a chef for a few years (an obvious career choice you might think). You’d be right, of course, until the sleep-deprived, malnourished, over-worked, under-paid, alcohol and coffee fuelled existence started to take…

TV: The Top 10 American Sitcom Characters of All Time

By Bill In the past 25 years, American sitcoms have become all-consuming. You can’t flick through the TV anymore without encountering at least half a dozen episodes of US sitcoms old and new (of course, Friends is on a constant loop, so you can always find that). Whilst most American sitcoms are quite formulaic and…

Gaming: The Main Series Pokémon Games Ranked: Worst to Best

By Bill With the upcoming release of the sequel to Pokémon Sun & Moon nearly here, I thought I’d take a look at the series so far, from its humble beginnings on the original Gameboy back in the mid-90s to today, where it has grown to become one of the biggest franchises in the world,…

Literature: 6 Times Authors Predicted The Future

By James Predicting the future is something I’m sure we’d all like to be capable of.

By James I’m back with another RTS! I know you’re excited about it, so I’m just going to crack on (I really like to think you are, so apologies if you’re not. I can’t imagine you’re here for my charming personality and dashingly good looks…). Impossible Creatures landed in 2003. Big things were riding on…

Music: The Mysteries Behind Radiohead’s Thom Yorke

By James Radiohead. A multi-award winning experimental rock group from Abingdon, Oxfordshire, UK. They’re not for everyone, I will admit, but if you’ve always thought about getting into them, then think of the band as a psychedelic, even more, experimental version of Muse. But, we’re not here today to talk about Radiohead. No, the purpose…

Music: Top 10 Cover Songs of All Time

By Bill Cover songs, like movie remakes, are often derided and considered inferior works when compared to original versions, however there are a plethora of exceptions with some even exceeding the originals. Now, not all of these are better than the originals, however they come bloody close, with some even coming up trumps. The best…

Film: Top 6 Chris Pratt Performances

By James In recent years, a certain male actor has risen to prominence with a ludicrously exponential increase in popularity. His name is Chris Pratt. Yes, this once plucky and comedic American has taken Hollywood, and the world, by storm. I mean, it’s not hard to see why - even I can see that he’s…

Gaming: Top 8 Superhero Videogames of All Time

By Bill James recently took everyone through a list of the greatest superhero movies of all time, so I thought I’d see what the world of videogames had to offer the universe of cape wearing do-gooders. Often, superhero videogames are reduced to cheap movie tie-ins with little value in their own right, however, there have…
