Film Review: Cars 3 (USA, 2017) is a near-perfect return for the franchise

It has finally arrived! After the teaser trailer that saw Lightning McQueen being absolutely annihilated on the racetrack months ago, we were all left wondering exactly where the Cars franchise had taken us with this all new installment, especially after the disappointing Cars 2 and Disney’s attempt at making it a broader universe with the lacklustre Planes....

Video Games Review: Wipeout Omega Collection (PS4, 2017) punches the nostalgia button but still can’t keep pace

The year was 1995, I was sifting through my Australian PlayStation Magazine demo discs after playing a couple of hours of Spyro the Dragon on my PlayStation, I decided I would finally give the ‘PlayStation Demo Disc’ a good go! The disc came with the console at the time it launched, I just hadn’t had any real reason to pop it in the drive until now, the infamous PlayStation start up sound vibrated my TV and I was given the option of WipeOut, Destruction Derby and Total NBA (alongside that awesome T-Rex Dinosaur and Manta Ray 3D simulation video), of course I chose WipeOut!...

Interview: Supanova guest Colin Donnell talks Chicago Med, the death of Tommy Merlyn & arm wrestling Chris Hemsworth

Colin Donnell is a name that has been around for quite some time in the DC/CW Universe with his character of Tommy Merlyn in CW’s Arrow TV series. Even though Tommy was only with us for one season, his death on the show led to some serious foundations for the series going forward and leaving many a fan crying out for more, leading into some later cameo’s (in flashback form)....

Interview: Hugo Weaving talks about ABC’s Seven Types of Ambiguity, V For Vendetta and Kicking John Wick’s Ass

One of Australia’s top leading film and TV actors, Hugo Weaving is not a name you forget. With so much versatility and strength in every role he takes on, it’s hardly surprising he is a household name throughout the world. From his 1994 role as Tick (or Mitzi if you prefer) in Priscilla Queen of The Desert to his global break-out in The Wachowski’s The Matrix Trilogy,  V for Vendetta, The Lord of The Rings, Captain America The First Avenger and the list goes on, he’s been involved in his fair share of big screen blockbusters. But now, Weaving has returned to doing what he loves: small-scale Australian roles that are absolutely huge on character, development and big on heart with ABC’s Seven Types of Ambiguity, based on the book by Elliot Perlman....

Interview: Supanova Guest Christopher Judge talks about the new God of War, Stargate and being a Fantastic Geek!

For many of us geeks and nerds, Christopher Judge has been in all our lives since 1997, the year Stargate SG -1 entered our universe. The one show none of us thought possible; how could you outdo such a wonderful film? Well, it grew beyond all our wildest expectations and became one of the longest-running science fiction series of our time, spanning ten whole seasons and then branching off into spin-off series and movies of its own, in no small part to Chris’s character, Teal’c the Jaffa Warrior....

Video Games Review: Dreamfall Chapters (PS4, 2017) dreams big, but falls a little flat

The Dreamfall timeline is a complicated one. Bear with us. The original game, The Longest Journey, released in 2000 and was followed up in 2006 with Dreamfall: The Longest Journey. It lay dormant for nine years until the launch of Dreamfall Chapters, an episodic continuation of the series. The first episode of Dreamfall Chapters released in 2014 but its fifth and final episode didn’t materialise until 2016. Now, in 2017, the entire Chapters series has been remastered and compiled into a single game, The Final Cut, for its journey to consoles.

Video Games Review: Guardians of The Galaxy: The Telltale Series Ep 1 – Tangled Up In Blue (Xbox One, 2017)

Telltale Games is back, baby! I know, they seem to be back every few months but this time they’re bringing the flavour of the month — Guardians of The Galaxy! This is a story based not on the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s band of misfits but directly from the pages of their long-running comic book. So yeah, their aesthetic is a little different from that of the films and that sort of helps because they also sound different (except Rocket Raccoon, Nolan North does a damn near spot on impression of Bradley Cooper’s take on the character).
