"Let my review of the game serve as a lesson to all that nothing is ever a 'sure thing,' and you should never get too excited about something because someone will always find a way to corrupt the things you love."
I’ve spoken about terrible movie adaptations of games on here so far, but few things in this world can be quite as terrible as a video game tie-in for a movie. Make no mistake, that’s exactly what Mad Max (the game) is, no matter what some people may say to try and convince you otherwise. It doesn’t just borrow from the established canon of Fury Road, but can be considered a direct prequel to the events of that movie. Aside from the inclusion of the War Boyz, it also has Scabrous Scrotus as the main protagonist, Scabrous being one of the three sons of Immortan Joe. It pulled from some of the greatest source material any game could ask for, and still managed to screw it up spectacularly.
The best £12 I spent on a cinema ticket in a long time.
You might have heard about Mike Flanagan if you are into crazy good scary movies, I for one was a lifelong fan from the moment I finished watching Oculus, and Hush cemented my love for this talented editor turned director... Who was even born in Salem! So when I read Flanagan was working on a prequel to the average but million dollar earning Ouija, I got über excited – and holy crap was I right, Ouija: Origin Of Evil is some scary shit!
I Am Not a Serial Killer is a must watch for the lovers of weird indie movies, and obviously those of you interested in the Serial Killer psyche such as myself, not just because the protagonist makes two serial killer references in the first 10 minutes, but it digs a bit deeper analysing how they become that way, what motivates them and how to stop them.
The monsters of Finland Lordi, still know how to Rock out.
Lordi have been around for ages, but it wasn’t until one night back in 2006 when I finally discovered them. I was in my room probably playing WoW when my father came in and turned on my TV to the Eurovision Song Contest saying there was something I might like; it was Lordi’s ‘Hard Rock Hallelujah’ it was love at first sight.
Taika Waititi is putting New Zealand on the map!...Again!
Hunt for the Wilderpeople is the newest film by Taika Waititi that we all know and love for gifting the world with the hilarious What We Do In The Shadows, where he contributed both behind the camera as the co-director, in front of the camera as vampire Viago and he also co-wrote it of course. Hunt for the Wilderpeople was adapted by Waititi for the big screen from the book Wild Pork and Watercress by Barry Crump, but put a funnier spin to it that what the paper version originally was, he also directed it and has a small cameo in it as a Minister (that based the sermon he's preaching on a real life event he witnessed).
