The UK premiere of a Japanese erotic fantasy! It’s every bit as strange as its premise suggests, but what’s really remarkable is just how peaceful the whole thing is.
Here’s a half-baked curate’s egg that nonetheless leaves a good taste in the mouth!
Anton Sukharev invites YOU to take a hallucinogenic journey through some kind of jazzy hellish cityscape!
What happens when you lose everything? You just start again. You start all over again.
Zero budget labour of love proves that sci-fi does not have to be big to be beautiful! Small stories, told well, can be every bit as compelling as an interstellar blockbuster – if not more so.
Back-to-back action and back-to-back trash; all night in the cinema til the break of dawn! What could possibly go wrong?
Dominic Brunt & Joanne Mitchell are joined by some very strange special guests to bring a very strange story to life!
I went to see the Manic Street Preachers in Manchester last week. They were good! Very good!
This is not a review of that show. This is more like a review of me.
I’m wondering why it took me so long to realise that this band’s incredible.
I went to Play Expo in Manchester.
My brother‘s quite a wiz there, and he was able to get me in for free!
Now. What’s Play Expo. It’s a gaming expo. No matter what does it for you when it comes to gaming, they’ve got you covered. My brother’s the lord of the retro realm. He spends his days dual-wielding remote controls, reactivating analogue TVs when they go into standby mode.
But that’s just his day job. The stuff that goes on behind the scenes – all the setting up, wiring, calibrating, tuning etc. – well, it makes me knackered just thinking about it. He’s the quartermaster, and he chooses exactly what retro games and consoles get featured.
He’s gracious enough to give people the sort of stuff they expect to see – such as Mario games, which I know he’s not too keen on himself. But he also adds a few personal touches. Like Stimpy’s Invention, a Megadrive Ren & Stimpy platformer that’s just as odd as you’d expect.
But that’s not all! Gaming is a broad church, and everyone’s welcome. You like board games? They’ve got board games. You like card games? They have those. Arcade cabinets? Yep. And pinball.
Let’s look at the pinball!
