Film Review: I Feel Pretty

Image
As comedies go, I Feel Pretty is the blandest of vanilla ice creams. A painfully generic story is hampered by a scrambled message which never quite landed for me. The film bombards you with a multitude of cliches that you’d expect from a “body swap/you’re now magically special” trope that's been exhaustingly overused.
Amy Schumer plays Renee Bennett, a woman who’s struggling with insecurity in relation to her body image. In an act of desperation, she wishes she was "truly beautiful" and courtesy of a bump on the head at her gym, her wish is granted. Renee wakes and only sees a new and beautiful self in the mirror. Enter moral premise stage left: nothing in her life actually changes. Genius! Renee’s life doesn't magically change even though she now plays up the "hot chick" status; to everyone else she’s just plain old Renee.
My biggest issue with this film is that it’s set in and around the world of fashion and cosmetics. Renee works for Avery LeClaire, a h…

TO INFINITY WAR AND BEYOND: EPISODE SEVENTEEN - SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING

Image
This week it’s what nobody asked for but what turned out to actually be pretty good: Spider-Man Homecoming! 

Speaking of things nobody asked for, this week we are joined by Ben, George, and Connor from The Podcast Strikes Back! Seriously though, this episode was a boatload of fun.

Topics discussed include: Spider-Man Film Rankings, Too many Easter Eggs, Captain America’s community announcements, and the movie Game Night for some reason...

As always it would make our day if you could take a couple of minutes to rate and reviews us on iTunes or drop us some feedback below! Really keen to have your input in the show.

Enjoy!

Our Intro …

Yakuza 6 (PS4) Review

Image
The more I think on it, the more I realise I enjoyed Yakuza 0 more than I thought I did. The colourful, quirky combination of sandbox gameplay, beat-em-ups and karaoke - the latter only one amongst the game's host of other noteworthy minigames - was jarring for someone bred on the immediate, easy thuggishness of GTA and Saint's Row, but grew on me more in retrospect.

So it made me all the more excited for Yakuza 6; now that I had a foot in the door, I was keen to explore the franchise in general. Trouble is, its sixth numbered entry happens to be the end of the line. Curse my poor timing.


While it may not be the end of the franchise, given its array of colourful characters with plots yet untapped, Yakuza 6 draws a line under the tale of lead protagonist Kazuma Kiryu. In the wake of his near-death experience at the end of Yakuza 5 (which, full disclosure, I haven't played), Kiryu winds up in hospital to recover before being thrown into prison for what seems to be the five h…

TO INFINITY WAR AND BEYOND: EPISODE SIXTEEN - GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2

Image
Time to get hooked on a feeling again, only this time with more poop jokes.

That’s right the Guardians are back for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, only this time things go all Scooby doo.

Topics discussed include: Avenger 4 Theories (2m 25s - 6m 15s), Baby Groot, too much Yondu and possibly Stan’s most ambitious Cameo yet!

TO INFINITY WAR AND BEYOND: EPISODE FIFTEEN - DR STRANGE

Image
This week things get strange... or should we say Dr. Strange! (Sorry).

It’s Marvel’s luke-warm classic about medicine, magic and one very awkward American accent. Also Billy forces Christof to watch a trailer for the 1970’s Dr. Strange Tele-movie for some reason.

Topics include: ‘magic’, 2016’s most controversial emails, astral projection mansplaining and Christof gets really shitty about a continuity error.

Image
This week Billy is firmly on team Cap and Christof is firmly on team I-want-my-two-and-a-half-hours-back-oh-god-why-did-I -agree-to-this....

That's right, it's time to watch Captain America: Civil War!

Topics Include: Vision's weird 'casual' attire, Tony's nonsensical actions, Black Panther lite and why is the Hobbit in this one?
