Film review: Star Trek Beyond

July 26, 2016

Star Trek is back on the big screen and it has passed through the darkness into the Beyond.  So if it's beyond the darkness, it should be all fun and giggles right? Hmm, the trailer had lots of explosions in it and Beastie Boys screaming so not sure about that.  Anyhow, in this episode we discuss director Justin Lin's new film along with many other Star Trek related things.

Ghostbusters (2016) review

July 19, 2016

And lo, the four horsewomen of the apocalypse did arrive to destroy the childhood of all men and there was great wailing and gnashing of teeth!  Or was there...  Yes, the reboot of Ghostbusters has finally been released.  Ok, the world didn't end but was it a decent film?  Did it insult the original Ghostbusters film?  Could it be anywhere near as bad as Ghostbusters 2?  The opinions of the Weirdsphere denizens are within... and now with added Roben!

Board game review : Lords of Vegas

July 14, 2016

Did you ever want to go back in time and take part in the founding of the gambling juggernaut that is Las Vegas?  Nah, me neither.  Still, building casinos and trying to take over those of your rivals could actually a lot of fun in a board game and that's just what Lords of Vegas is all about.  So why not roll the dice and see what the Weirdsphere think of it!

Comic review: Saga volumes 1 - 5

July 5, 2016

In preparation for the sixth trade to arrive we have read the first five volumes of Brian K Vaughan's and Fiona Staples' comic series Saga.  A creative mix of space opera and fantasy Saga is notable in covering many issues such as gender roles and sexuality.  It has won many awards and been met with wide critical acclaim, but do the fools in the Weirdsphere agree?
