Dunkirk – Traditional War Movie With Some Nolan Flavor

Dunkirk – The Geek Lyfe Review When you have a director like Christopher Nolan who’s blown audiences away with movies about time travel, dream invaders, and a grown man in expensive bat pajamas who punches clowns in the face, you have to wonder how he’d fare with a more grounded story about a military extraction. With Dunkirk being Nolan’s first run at a war-based action/dr...

Freeplay Frenchie Reviews Strungballs!

Freeplay Frenchie Reviews Strungballs! If there’s one thing you count on StrangeBooks for, it’s an original mind-bending story. You may remember the name StrangeBooks from my last review on Mike Russell’s collection of short stories. In Mike Russell’s latest tale, we encounter Sydney, a young boy living in a weird, almost dystopian world with a grisly twist. In this bizarre...

Astroneer- The Space Game You Want

Astroneer- The Space Game You Want With the disappointment of No Man’s Sky, I was very wary of any space games that proclaimed fun exploration and space creation. So when I started Astroneer, I was hesitant to get too excited. But let me say this: Astroneer is the No Man’s Sky we all wanted. It filled the black hole in my heart (pun intended) that No Man’s Sky left behind. Althou...

Freeplay Frenchie Reviews Assassin’s Creed

Freeplay Frenchie Reviews Assassin’s Creed Like most gamers witnessing their favourite franchises convert to cinema, I was apprehensive to say the least about the Assassin’s Creed movie. Though I had heard some things to suggest it could be a success, such as Ubisoft retaining most of the control about which directions to take the film in and thus create a film that fans could be proud...

StrangeBooks from Brighton!

Although University had its trials and tribulations for me, I will say that I am so grateful to my creative writing tutors for introducing me to the art of short stories and flash fiction, because to me that’s what it is. I would say I have a stronger connection to flash fiction, because it’s shorter, and because it demands more of you in fewer words, but also because there’s les...

How to make your Female NPCs more realistic in Dungeons and Dragons!

How to make your Female NPCs more realistic in Dungeons and Dragons! I was unaware that this was really an issue in D&D, however it has been brought to my attention that as D&D is still primarily popular with men that sometimes it can be difficult to create authentic female characters. Without realizing, I created several female NPCs who had large parts to play in my campaign and analysing...

Independence Day: Resurgence Review

Independence Day: Resurgence Review If you’ve not taken a look yet at some of the reviews for Independence Day: Resurgence, spoiler alert, they’re not kind. With scores of 34% on Metacritic and 34% on Rotten Tomatoes the skies are dark indeed. However, this fan was more than satisfied with the ‘popcorn chaos’ that ensued. Despite being far too back from the screen for my li...
