VIDEO – Adelaide Comic & Toy Fair ~ April 2019

Despite being busy I was able to whip up this brief video of the Adelaide Comic & Toy Fair. It doesn’t quite capture the entirety of the event but does offer a glimpse into what’s on offer at these sorts of events.

Locked out!

An international competition, featuring contestants from all around the world, and yet the official stream was region locked. Yeah that pissed me off.

REVIEW: Shazam! (2019)

I had a great time with Shazam!, it’s such a fun movie with plenty of action and laughs as well as a few appropriately dark moments. I almost reckon this may be the best DC movie in their current run.

Derailing the hype-train

Back in 1999 I was in year 11 of high school. I recall sitting in design class late one afternoon when a friend enthusiastically rushed up to me asking if I had seen The Matrix yet? I hadn’t but I surprisingly wasn’t in any rush to do so. For months the ads on TV were droning the same line over and over again, “No one can be told what The Matrix is”, which was the tantalising mystery at the centre of the movie as well as its marketing.

REVIEW – Resident Evil 2 (2019)

I tend not to get into “survival horror” (let alone horror) so I’ve never played a Resident Evil game in my life (although I’m familiar with them through “internet osmosis” as well as watching the various live-action and animated movies). In fact, my gaming tastes are very narrow.
