Pokemon Duel

An addictive and surprisingly complex take on the winning Pokémon formula. Will more than likely keep me coming back for many months.

How I Met Your Mother

One of the best sitcoms ever. Season eight feels a little tired, but it pulls it back for the finale and provides what I feel is an extremely satisfying ending. I will miss these characters and I'm sure will revisit the show in the future.

Mortdecai

It just doesn't work. I'm not sure why, but the humour falls flat, the plot is banal and the end product leaves you utterly indifferent. The definition of meh.

Planet Hulk

An interesting enough film but the problem is that the source material is just far superior. Read that, skip this.

Portal 2

A more than worthy successor, with brilliant voice acting, intelligent level design and some very fun new game mechanics.

Treasure

It’s a Dirk Pitt novel. That should tell you everything you need to know, except this one has a more interesting villain than normal.

Pacific Vortex

A clear prototype for what would become the long running Dirk Pitt series with little of novel interest. A page turner, nothing more.

A Natural History of Dragons: A Memoir of Lady Trent

A wonderfully illustrated and surprisingly detailed world of fantastic creatures; a great work of fantasy with strong characterisation and some genuinely interesting speculative biology. An instant favourite franchise.

Bill Bryson’s African Diary

Funny and informative, plus all for a good cause. Can’t really complain.

La La Land

A wonderful mashup of homages, genres and styles held tightly together by a clever story, brilliant performances and one of the best original musical soundtracks in years.

Hardcore Henry

Gamers will get a few laughs and find the mix of gaming pastiches in a movie interesting enough but there isn't much more to recommend this one-trick pony.
