Race the Sun by Flippily

Gaming Review: Race the Sun by Flippfly

There are a few things that can make people play games nonstop. It could be the storyline, nostalgia, gameplay, whatever. But there’s one sort of game out there that knows how to draw the player in: The ones so addictive, you can’t help but say “just one more go…”

And that is exactly how I felt when I played Race the Sun, which was developed and published by Flippfly.

Film Review: The Armstrong Lie

Gibney has a exemplary list of very credible documentaries on his CV at this stage. In 2008 he nearly tarnished that talent when he took up the subject of covering Lance Armstrong who had decided to come back to the world of professional cycling tournaments, having seemingly retired after ‘winning’ the Tour de France a record seven consecutive times.

Out of The Furnace - Film Review

Film Review: Out Of The Furnace

Once again advertisements for movies are doing a disservice, if not indeed, the movie goer. The one I saw for director Scott Cooper’s new work ‘Out Of The Furnace’ bore little resemblance for the overtly brooding aggressive movie that I had seen.

Damien Jurado: Review of Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Son

Damien Jurado: Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Son

Flush was fortunate enough to see Damien Jurado perform a very intimate acoustic pre-Christmas solo show in London’s St Pancras Old Church. It couldn’t have been more stripped back other than the guitar on his knee, the contemplative richness of his voice, and the resonance of the church acoustics.

jack Ryan Shadow Recruit Review Jan 2014

Film Review: Jack Ryan Shadow Recruit

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit represents Paramount’s attempt to reboot the Tom Clancy-created character for the big screen, in the obvious hope that he can be their very own gay marriage of James Bond and Jason Bourne; a gestalt globule of clean-cut action-espionage goodness.

Film Review: 12 years a slave

The year before last I read an article about Shame and promptly went to see it. It completely knocked me sideways. Emotionally exhausting, but mesmerising.
