My First Shot At Time-lapse Photography

My first shot at time-lapse photography using a newly acquired GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition. I bear no responsibility for cleaning the window.

Blade Runner with a slice of Minority Report…..what’s not to like!?!

The Diner, Soho

The Burger Chronicles

“Big Kahuna Burger?…The cornerstone of any nutritious breakfast!” At some point in June 2012, my friend Luke and I made a pact; to find the best burger in London. What is it that so satisfying about a good burger? The meat? The glazed bun? The relish and salty sides that accompany it? Or is it the nostalgia of every bite that takes people back to their childhoods? Many bloggers have taken on the task before in search of this holy grail, but […]

Man Of Steel

Man Of Steel [2013]

Why the world needs Superman. Krypton’s greatest son has dropped back into our box offices this weekend with an almighty sonic boom. Zack Snyder is behind the lens, along with Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer on executive producing and writing duties. Whilst the film takes a much more darker and sombre tone to it’s predecessors, what it loses in bravado it certainly makes up for in scale. Right from the very moment to opening titles dissolve we are thrown […]

Sunset Over Clapham

With the recent summer spell here in Clapham, London (it has lasted almost a whole week!), I finally had the opportunity to grab some sunset stills whilst the skies were clear.

Assassin's Creed 3 (Boston)

Assassin’s Creed 3

As gamers are becoming more and more tired of annual instalments of AAA titles, especially of certain FPS military shooters, Ubisoft have managed to narrowly escape the crossfire of these conversations. Assassin’s Creed 3 is a frustrating, glitchy and unevenly paced game for the first 40% or so of the main story. After the lengthy learning curve and when Connor finally gets down to business, the game reaches the same heights of playing as Ezio in AC2. The story of AC3 is one of the series most compelling […]

Trance 2013

Trance [2013]

How does a man top the feat of masterminding of the London 2012 Opening Ceremony? Not easily. That’s why I feel critics have been too harsh on Danny Boyle’s lastest feature film, Trance. Hype can be a dangerous thing if it spirals out of control, especially if you’re Britain’s golden boy and all eyes are on your next move. However, I like to go into a Danny Boyle film with a casual feeling and, I hate to say it, not expecting much. I […]

Metal Gear Solid

Metal Gear Solid….A Series Retrospective

My first experience playing as Solid Snake was with Metal Gear Solid (MGS) on the PS1 back in 1998. Relatively new to gaming, all I had on my trusty grey console was a copy of Driver and Mission: Impossible (who didn’t want to recreate dodging lasers in the CIA server room heist?). I visited a friends house, and he was one of those kids that had a EVERY game off the store shelf. I certainly need to learn the trick […]

Die Hard 5

A Good Day To Die Hard [2013]

Die Hard has returned with a fifth installment  and this time McClane gets entangled up in a terrorist plot whilst tracking down his estranged son in Moscow. A Good Day To Die Hard is not a good film, even as a standalone action film (that was painful to say). Director John Moore and screenwriter Skip Woods have turned John McClane into a cranky, 2D, “I told you so” character, and completely left out the wise-cracking and quick thinking blue-collared hero elements […]

Django Unchained

Django Unchained & The Tarantino Universe

Quentin Tarantino returns with a “Southern” take on the Western genre with Django Unchained. Following on from the successful Inglourious Basterds, Tarantino re-teams with the charismatic Christoph Waltz, who plays bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz. Under the guise of weary travelling dentist he tracks down the currently enslaved Django, played by Jamie Foxx, who can help him identify his next bounty. The two of them then set off to hunt down the Brittle brothers, and along the way discover Django’s goal to free his enslaved […]
