The transition between the gaming industry and the movie industry has been a patchy one. Games don’t fair well when they are turned into movies, Super Mario Bros being an early example and Warcraft not doing much to buck the trend. … Continue reading Why Until Dawn is the game for movie fans
I’m going to pre-cursor this theory with a simple statement: This is my opinion of the series and not necessarily the intended view. It isn’t an original view, I’d heard it many times before and dismissed it as quickly but as … Continue reading Month of Bond: Why James Bond is a codename and not one man!
The final day of Month of Bond and fittingly I have finally seen them all! So all that is left is to put them in order, from worst to the best. Suitably there is a decent mix of the different Bond’s … Continue reading Month of Bond: Ranking every Bond film!
This is one of those posts I know will cause arguments. Everyone has their own criteria for what makes a good James Bond (or a bad one) and sometimes it doesn’t even matter how good the films themselves are. I think the … Continue reading Month of Bond: Who is the Best James Bond?

Tomorrow Never Dies is everything I want a Bond film to be. It has a great Bond, a kick-ass Bond Girl, a villain with a smart and effective scheme and best of all, some great, ambitious action sequences. Where Goldeneye … Continue reading Month of Bond: Tomorrow Never Dies (1997) Review
Pierce Brosnan seems to have done his homework when he put together his version of James Bond. In Brosnan we get the aggression of Connery, the arrogance of Moore, the seriousness of Dalton and a nice mix of gallows humour and … Continue reading Month of Bond: Goldeneye (1995) Review
James Bond may be the central character to the whole 007 franchise but there are also many regular contributing characters that make the movies so successful. You can name a clear-cut ” Bond family” and arguably, at the “Head” of this … Continue reading Month of Bond: A Tribute to M
Before everyone was connected by a broadband, super-fast internet connection, if you wanted to play multiplayer you had to have two controllers and a friend, physically in the room with you. The N64 then went one better, adding three extra ports … Continue reading Month of Bond: A look at Goldeneye: The Videogame! (Part 2)
