Arbitrage (Frank’s Take).

First-time director Nicholas Jarecki’s cynical financial fable ‘Arbitrage’ wants to take a suspenseful poke at the reckless rich and remind us of the duplicity behind the pompous privileged. In times of the incessant recession that is affecting disenfranchised people everywhere, one would think that ‘Arbitrage’ would be a timely and smart cautionary tale spotlighting class […]

The Tweed Album.

From Mr B. The Gentleman Rhymer‘s latest work, ‘The Tweed Album,’ we have some rather spiffing chap-core, specifically, a song called Bullingdon Breakdown. In the best tradition of the genre, Mr B. has a very interesting dis-agreement on with steampunk rapper Professor Elemental. Now, I won’t swear to it, but it rather looks like Mr […]

Doctor Who: 2012 Season One episode 3: A Town Called Mercy.

Continuing from last week, if you’re living in a country that hasn’t seen these episodes yet, read with caution but I’m not going to give too much away. If you can watch it first, that’s even better Essentially, the Doctor meets the Wild West meets the Terminator meets High Noon. What should have been cliché […]

Xbox 360 steampunk game control.

Come on, admit it, who hasn’t wanted an Xbox 360 steampunk game control at some time or another? We certainly are guilty. It makes all those X-box games so more refined when you are sitting down and playing them in one’s gamepunk dressing gown or tweeds, what? Luckily, there’s a chap called Devlin over at […]

Resident Evil: Retribution (Frank’s Take).

The predictable ritual of enduring the Resident Evil film franchise is a critical cross that most film critics have to bear. Think of it as the occupational hazard of the profession. Now in all fairness there are countless filmmakers that milk a movie series regardless of its repetitive, rancid quality. Certainly Len Wiseman immediately comes […]

Hobbity goodness.

Peter Jackson has just released a whole slew of new cast photos from The Hobbit movie. Very nice. Of course, this one is going to be a hit – but I know a few die-hard LoTR fans (yes, you, Andy) who are not so chuffed about making a rather short novel like The Hobbit into […]
