'The Amazing World of Gumball - Season 1 Vol. 1' Review

‘The Amazing World of Gumball – Season 1 Vol. 1′ Review

I may be seen as being too old for Cartoon Network but I love the channel.  One of the things that is so easy to love is the way they take risks with cartoons and aren’t afraid to provide us with the likes of Adventure Time and The Amazing World of Gumball.  Watching it from a review perspective I do have to wonder what to write about it, and one word that pops up is…crazy.

'The Smoke' Review - The Soap Opera Gangsters

‘The Smoke’ Review – The Soap Opera Gangsters

The modern British gangster movies are strange beasts, and I admit I do have a weakness for them.  With acting that is often questionable and stories that tend to be on the sillier side of crime thrillers they have a charm that can even survive a Danny Dyer starring role (that was a joke, don’t bite my head off).  The Smoketo be fair only takes a gentle stroll into the British gangster movie…

It is fair to say that the Artwork in Adventure time is one of the things that make it stand out.  Whether it’s the episodes themselves or the title cards you instantly recognise it as Adventure Time.  Now in Adventure Time: The Art of Ooo we have a book all about the art and how it makes it from drawing board to cartoon.  To prepare for the review of the book we have a new image gallery that gives you a sneak peek into what to expect:

the-art-of-Ooo

The Emmy Award-winning comedy series Adventure Time is one of Cartoon Network’s most popular shows, as well as a cult phenomenon across the world. Adventure Time: The Art of Ooo is the perfect companion to this ground-breaking and much-loved series. It is the first ever book to take fans behind the scenes of Finn the Human and Jake the Dog’s escapades in the post apocalyptic, magical land of Ooo, allowing devotees to immerse themselves in Finn and Jake’s biggest adventure yet – that from the drawing board, to the screen in your living room.

The Art of Ooo traces series creator Pendleton Ward’s early artwork, then reveals how the writers, storyboard artists, animators and voice actors work in tandem to bring this wonderfully imaginative and funny animated series to life. Fans will pore over the creative process from concept art, storyboards, early character sketches, background paintings and rare glimpses into the series’ show bible. This lavish tome is a visual treasure chest, gilded throughout with commentary from all the show’s key creative talent.

'Doctor Who: 8x09 - Flatline' Review

‘Doctor Who: 8×09 – Flatline’ Review

When Doctor Who is at its best it can be imaginative and scary, especially for a younger audience.  There is always a fine balance though between the scientific jargon that can be used before the show loses its audience, or they just close off their brains while the Time Lord spews out big words.  Flatlineis yet another episode to scare the kids, but when it focuses on dimensions, will it lose…

'Adventure Time - Season 2' Review

‘Adventure Time – Season 2′ Review

Adventure Time is very easy to love, it’s like bite sized doses of pop culture candy with an extra coating of sugar just to keep you on an energy high.  Now that Adventure Time – Season 2 is coming out in the UK we can almost overdose on the tales of Finn and Jake.

This season of Adventure Time is very much a case of more of the same, and that is not a bad thing.  With battles against the Ice…

When a serial killer is caught one of the questions that is often asked is why didn’t the family realise? For many the answer probably is that they never thought that the person was capable of it, love is blind.  In Found though this questions is examined through the eyes of a young boy.

‘Kick-Ass 3 by Mark Millar & John Romita Jr.’ Graphic Novel Review

When Kick-Ass was introduced to the world by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. not only were we introduced to that him as a character, but more importantly Hit-Girl.  Dave Lizewski aka Kick Ass wasn’t a real superhero, Hit-Girl was, and she made Kick-Ass into everything he was destined to be.  Now we are at Kick-Ass 3 is Dave finally a fully fledged superhero, or still a comic book obsessed wannabe?

‘The Killjoy Collection’ 88 Films DVD Review

I love clowns, more importantly I love that they scare people so much.  They are meant to make us laugh, be bright and happy but it doesn’t take much before they seem eerie and other worldly.  Killjoy is a clown character I’ve been aware of for a while but never managed to make the time to watch, so now The Killjoy Collectionis available, this was the perfect chance to finally see if it was worth…
