My Experience With Oculus Rift & The Future Of Cinematic Storytelling

Oculus Rift Review VR Cinema

I have a reasonably decent PC for video editing and so decided to get the Oculus Rift when it went up for pre-order in January (I’d also been following the Rift’s progress obsessively for years). Now, months later, it’s finally arrived, and there’s no doubt it’s the future. Perhaps the future of movies too.

Who Should Be The Next James Bond?

Who Should Be The Next James Bond?

Reports are that Daniel Craig’s lack of enthusiasm for future Bonds on the press tour for ‘Spectre’ was genuine (rather than just a ploy to up his fee). Tom Hiddleston has seemingly been meeting with Bond producers. But would Hiddleston take the role, and who should be the other lead contenders?

X-Men: Apocalypse – Review

X-Men: Apocalypse Review

When the X-Men franchise started in 2000, the cinematic landscape was radically different. Bryan Singer’s first film ushered in the current wave of superhero movies, and the genre has evolved quite a bit since then. With X-Men: Apocalypse the relative restraint of early entries into the series is truly a thing of the past.

The Jungle Book (2016) – Review

The Jungle Book Review

Heath here. Thought I’d try a written review for a change. Based on the novel of the same name by Rudyard Kipling, The Jungle Book was brought to the big screen in 1967 as an animated musical by Walt Disney, who sadly passed away halfway through its production.

Despite it having very little to do with the original source, the movie was a huge box office hit and is still to this day considered to be highly favorable among Disney fanatics of all ages.
