Review: Doctor Who – Ravenous 4

Review by Jacob Licklider


The finales for the Eighth Doctor box sets have always had difficulty tying things together into a satisfying conclusion, so I was apprehensive going into Ravenous 4. The three previous sets in the Ravenous series, however, had set themselves apart by telling stories where the arc isn’t nearly as comprehensive or built up as Dark Eyes or Doom Coalition. Big Finish setup the Ravenous as a great evil with motivation of devouring everything in its sight and being difficult to beat, unlike previous miniseries with conspiracies going deep into Time Lord mythology and the precursor to the Time War. Ravenous does not include this baggage, allowing the miniseries to feel more laid back allowing the listener to enjoy the ride. This kept me optimistic for the fourth installment, which was then announced to feature four incarnations of the Master and the Eleven and hype began to set in. Because this release was only this month, this review will remain largely spoiler free.

Review: One Cut of the Dead (2017)

Japanese with English Subtitles

Having heard a lot of hype for this low-budget cult horror/comedy from Japanese director Shinichirou Ueda so i was glad to get the chance to check it out for myself.

ONE CUT OF THE DEAD first appears to be a one-take indie zombie film… but something magical happens at 37 minutes in: the film’s director yells cut and – throwing all cinematic conventions and viewer expectations to the wind – it transforms into a charming story about the power of family, the passion that goes into making movies, and, in its stunning final sequence, a uproarious meta re-examination of the film’s opening single take and how it came to be!”

Slots Based on Movies

At a first glance, you wouldn’t think that a theme of a slot game would have that much impact, after all, a slot machine is a slot machine. When selecting a slot to play, people are more likely to choose one that is familiar to them and that familiarity more often than not, comes in the form of a movie.

Seeing scenes from your favourite films or your favourite actors can be a strong influence on your decision.

There are plenty of movie-themed game slots out there. Some that you can expect to see include big blockbusters like Batman, Top Gun and King Kong. We’ve taken a look at a range of movie-themed slots and compiled a list, where there is something for everyone to enjoy. Continue reading

Review: Short Trips – The Second Oldest Question

Review by Michael Goleniewski


If you are a Whovian at all in the slightest, you most likely know the oldest question in the universe. It’s been tackled and handled in multiple series across the show’s run and is instrumental to the very fabric of what Doctor Who is. But now the query becomes: what about the second oldest question in the universe? That’s what this Short Trip written by Carrie Thompson sets out to tackle further back in the Doctor’s timeline.
