Film Review: Jurassic Park III (2001)

Note: My reviews of Jurassic Park and The Lost World: Jurassic Park can be found here and here respectively. The original Jurassic Park was a revelation when it first released. The special effects were nothing short of astonishing and it really did push boundaries, breaking new ground in visual effects technology that unquestionably changed the way that films were made, […]

Review: Colin Thiele's Storm Boy – The Game

Version Played: Xbox One – Also available on: Android, iOS, PS4, Switch, PC, Mac I hadn’t heard of Storm Boy before coming across the video game adaptation in an Xbox One sale, but the Australian novel it’s based on has been a perenially popular childrens book since its publication in 1966. It’s been adapted into a film twice – once […]

Board Game Review: The Muddles

There’s a cute concept at the heart of The Muddles; players try to create ‘Muddles’ – funny little hybrids of two animals – in an effort to score the most points by the end of the game. The cards have amusing, simple and childlike illustrations, along with humorous names for the Muddles themselves. The problem is that there’s very little […]
