Film review: Independence Day: Resurgence

June 28, 2016
You know, an alien invasion that unites humanity sounds pretty sweet right about now.  So we went to see if Independence Day: Resurgence would offer us a cheerful message of love, unity and mass destruction.  Was it any good?  Who knows...  (well, we do)

And there is a bit of background noise as we recording this outside the cinema.  Just think of it as a giant spaceship about to blow us up and it will get you in the mood.

Film review: Warcraft: The Beginning

June 21, 2016

Warcraft: The Beginning is a film of duelling forces.  Not the humans and orcs, but between the greatness of Duncan Jones, Son of Bowie, maker of Moon and the problem that no good movie has ever come from a video game.  Which side triumphed in this epic clash?  Two weirdspherians (weirdos?) went to investigate!
