Kyle Barratt

The world is full of mysterious creatures whose existence spark constant debate. Scotland have the Loch Ness monster, North America have big foot and the Himalayas have the Yeti but none can hold a candle to England's mythical beast. The Kyle Barratt has eluded scientists for decades, many doubt he even exists and is really a man from Ealing named Carl. Yet time and time again proof arrives in the form of completed and well written articles.
  • Revisiting Predators

    In the run up to the release of The Predator in just a few short weeks, I’m revisiting the Predator sequels released so far; looking at what works and doesn’t work before finally sitting down to see if Shane Black can offer the ultimate Predator sequel. As I explored...
  • Revisiting Predator 2

    1987’s Predator is one of my favourite films but I’ve never wanted a sequel. Instead a prequel always seemed more interesting to me. We know that the Predators come to earth to hunt every ten years, so why not go back in time to see an earlier hunt in...
  • Hopes, Predictions and Questions for Picard’s Return to Star Trek

    Captain Jean-Luc Picard’s epic adventure across the galaxy came to an end 16 years ago with the release of Star Trek: Nemesis, one of my least favourite Star Trek films. Based on its own merits the film’s not actually all that bad (okay, it is pretty rubbish) but it’s regarded as...

  • My Hopes for the Second Half of Arrested Development Season 5

    “Moral of the story is I chose a half measure when I should have gone all the way. No more half measures”. It might seem strange but that Mike Ehrmantraut quote from Breaking Bad was at the forefront of my mind while watching the beginning of the fifth season...
  • Soldier: The Original Blade Runner Sequel

    The imaginatively named sci-fi action film Soldier was released in October of 1998 and upon first glance it’s a film that should be forgotten. It’s not particularly good, it was plagued with production trouble including the star Kurt Russell breaking his ankle by tripping over an ornamental cabbage (no...
  • What Westworld Got Right and Wrong in Season 2

    Spoilers below for Westworld season 2. The second season of the HBO sci-fi drama series Westworld debuted under a huge amount of anticipation and pressure. Not only was the first season critically acclaimed but over the 16 months the show had been off the air, rampant mega-fans had been...
  • Where should Far Cry 6 be set?

    Spoilers for Far Cry 5 follow. Just like with Ubisoft’s other big franchise, Assassin’s Creed, part of the fun of each new Far Cry game is playing the now well-worn gameplay mechanics in a new setting. Far Cry 5 took the action stateside where we were tasked with taking...
