Game Review: Wolfenstein The New Order – 4/5

Developer: Machine Games Platforms: Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, Windows Were the worlds of film and computerised gaming to collide, Wolfenstein: The New Order and Inglourious Basterds would hook up in no time. Unlike QT’s alternative timeline, in which Lt.  Aldo Raine and the scalping brigade eviscerate Hitler and the whole Nazi regime in […]

What I Watched Last Week: 16/06/14 – Thirteen reviews in one!

The World Cup 2014 is finally up and running, making Brazil the world’s number one attraction. As the Greatest Show on Earth marches on, cinema releases are really being stripped back to a bare minimum of period dramas and delicate foreign connoisseur pieces that only the most ardent anti-football fan would consider paying to see […]

Top Five: Bad Fathers in Films

Atticus in To Kill A Mockingbird. Transformers Dad in Transformers. Bryan Cranston in Malcolm in the Middle. (But not so much in his other show). James Stewart in It’s a Wonderful Life. Fiction has plenty of good fathers to pick from, and what better day to celebrate them than on Father’s Day, which this year […]

Top Five: Football Films to Watch in Between Word Cup Matches

What about that opening ceremony! Who wants a golden boot when you have massive flipping robot legs instead? It’s the Brazilian World Cup 2014, so football is now happening. Lots of it. There’s about three or four games scheduled per day which, including analysis and rubbish BBC mini-docs and goal montages to the tune of […]

What I Watched Last Week: 09/06/14 – Nine Film Reviews

Top Five: Cinematic Games of Chicken

Chicken: A game designed to test the nerve of the players involved. Traditionally, chicken is played between two motorists situated on either end of a stretch of road. The combatants then drive their cars full speed towards one another and the loser is he/she that pulls away to avoid collision. It’s a dumb game, and […]

Top Five: Popes That Should Have a Film

In the golden age of filmmaking, ginormous productions of The Ten Commandments and Ben Hur ilk were all the rage, but the 2014 double-whammy of Noah and Exodus (that’s the Moses one) have made for an astonishing resurrection of the ‘staff and sandals epic’. Hollywood is going crazy for scripture these days, so how long […]

What I Watched Last Week – 02/06/2014 – Five Film Mini-Reviews

Summer is here! And by the looks of things it’s going to be one of the best yet – just looking at the rain soaked patio outside fills me full of hope. With exams over (and exam retakes surely right around the corner), Movie Quibble’s output will be back to normal in the coming weeks. […]
