Review: Star Trek Beyond (2016)

After Into Darkness, this drags the franchise from the brink of a black hole and delivers on action and character… if not originality.

  1. Excellent piece! Seen 8 of the 10 films and love them all! For me, Boyhood could have been included...did not get that film at all and hated pretty much the whole thing! 10 Films You Either Love or Hate
  2. Completely agree...Bullitt should be number one!! Top 10 Hollywood Car Chases
  3. I just shudder to think what will come next?!?!?!?!? What depths television will plunge to next. Naked Attraction: Where It Went Wrong
  4. I started and finished this game (took me almost 2 hours) in the early hours of the morning last night and I have to say, I enjoyed it. Yes, the gameplay is nothing more than walking and picking up clues as to what has happened but the story is told in a way that pulls you in and demands you finish it in one sitting. It also has a surprisingly unique and mature story to tell. Review: Gone Home (2016)
  5. Finally! I loved ICO and its quite possible Shadow Of The Colossus is my favourite game of all time...so, lets see what Team ICO do with The Last Guardian! The Last Guardian finally gets a confirmed release date
  6. After the very disappointing cancellation of Silent Hills, I am so glad Hideo and Reedus are back working together. And this looks incredible and very intriguing!! Hideo Kojima announces new PS4 exclusive title
  7. Looks very P.T. (Silent Hills) - be very interested in how Resident Evil makes this shift from third person to first. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard to shift from third-person to first-person view
  8. Very sad news indeed. Loved him in Terminator Salvation and the two Trek films! Anton Yelchin, 1989 – 2016
  9. The second season may not be as incredible as the first but its far from bad...in fact its bloody good. Shame for it to be cancelled though!! No More True Detective?
  10. Outstanding show with so many jaw dropping moments!!! Remembering… The Shield
