Fantastic Four (film review by Frank Ochieng)

So the question remains: does Marvel Comics continue its movie-making tradition of escapist excess on the big screen with the latest superhero entry in the rebooting of the ‘Fantastic Four’ being brought into the cinematic forefront in the summertime of 2015? The easy reply is YES! Now for the important question at hand: does co-writer/director Josh […]

I Am Titanium (Pax Black book 1) by John Patrick Kennedy (book review).

I think ‘I Am Titanium’ is aimed at the younger person who likes superheroes. There’s a lot of teenage angst, sex and violence held loosely together by a strange plot. The story starts with the main character Pax’s consciousness returning back from a trip to the astral plane to take up residence once again in […]

Foxglove Summer (Peter Grant book 5) by Ben Aaronvitch (book review).

PC Peter Grant, trainee wizard. Home-the Folly. Boss-the Nightingale. Mission-don’t make a fool of yourself or get killed. Now in ‘Foxglove Summer’, the fish is most definitely out of water. Although more of that later. Reports of missing children and Peter is packed up and sent to Hereford. The Sticks. This is a significant moment […]

Hawk The Slayer (1980) (Blu-ray film review).

In vogue at the time, fantasy thrillers seemed to dominate the B-movie lists and this one is no exception. ‘Hawk The Slayer’ was made in 1980 and starring Jack Palance, John Terry and a host of other well-known British actors, it takes us to a battle between good and evil in a mysterious magical world […]

The Master Of Heathcrest Hall (book 3) by Galen Beckett (book review).

‘The Master Of Heathcrest Hall’ by Galen Beckett concludes the trilogy about the island nation of Altania, which is a recognisable stand-in for England in a fantastic Regency-like fantasy world with magic and Lovecraftian undertones and the struggle of its people for a future. The Ashen, creatures from another world, threaten the existence of all […]

Pixels (film review by Frank Ochieng)

Nostalgia can be something to revisit as a decent form of escapism from one’s current worries. It feels so refreshing to turn back the hands of time and recall all the wonderful memories and perks of our younger days and, what is not to consider about the days gone by when reminiscing about certain trends in […]

Witch Hunter (The Witch Hunter book 1) by Virginia Boecker (book review).

‘Witch Hunter’ is book one in a set of books currently to include two novels and two novellas by Virginia Boecker. Elizabeth Grey lives in a world not unlike ours in the 1500s but hers contains magic which is her job to stamp out as she is a witch hunter. You see, magic is the […]

The Whispering Swarm (The Sanctuary Of The White Friars book 1) by Michael Moorcock (book review).

‘The Whispering Swarm’ is Michael Moorcock’s latest fantasy novel and is somewhat unusual in that it also serves as a fictitious biography for the author. The result is a skilfully woven if lengthy tale that frustrates and delights in equal measure. Moorcock writes as himself growing-up in London during the forties and fifties before settling […]

Wicked Charms (Lizzy And Diesel book 3) by Janet Evanovich & Phoef Sutton (book review).

This is book three in the ‘Lizzy And Diesel’ series that will eventually contain seven books. The series currently contains ‘Wicked Appetite’ and ‘Wicked Business’ and, as with many series, I would suggest these are read in order. This time along with Janet Evanovich, we have a new co-author by the name of Phoef Sutton. […]
