Board game review: Room 25

December 27, 2016

Is your idea of fun waking up in a strange square room with a door on each wall leading to other square rooms potentially filled death traps like acid baths and rotating blades? And possibly one of your group is a nasty old hidden traitor who may give you a helpful shove into the instant death incinerator room?  Yes?  Wow, we have so much in common.  We should meet up in Room 25, which is also the name of today's board game we've reviewed.

Film review: Star Wars - the original trilogy (despecialized editions)

December 13, 2016

Today's episode is a jump back in time in a number of ways.  First, it was recorded before we started The Weirdsphere just before Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released.  Secondly, it's a review of the original Star Wars trilogy.  And finally, we watched the "despecialized editions" which are as close to the versions of the films shown in the cinemas as is possible in this world of Lucas-enforced CGI additions.  So, is the original trilogy just a fun nostalgia piece or is it truly as great as its position in movie history would suggest?

TV review: Black Mirror S3 E1 - Playtest

December 6, 2016

Charlie Brooker's feel good series Black Mirror offers up another dose of saccharine joy with the second episode of season 3, Playtest.  This time looking at virtual and augmented reality technology.  I mean, that couldn't possibly go in a depressing direction could it?
