Beyond Flesh And Blood, The Post-Apocalyptic Sci-Fi Horror Shooter Reveals The Xbox One Announcement Trailer

beyond flesh and blood

Beyond Flesh and Blood is a story-driven 3rd person action/shooter game, with horror overtones and sci-fi gore. Bringing together dystopian themes of dehumanization, cybernetics, political instability and environmental disaster, Pixelbomb Games has created a mech-in-mech, immersive experience where the objective is to tactically understand and utilize your environment in a battle against deadly enemies.

Players must battle their way through multiple gore-filled levels, blasting apart grotesque enemy hives, eliminating wave after wave of enemy scum with powerful weapons that push player’s skills to the limit.

Players become Ethan, and through him, jack into advanced multi-ability Tactical Combat Frames, or mechs, and battle a range of formidable enemies while accessing progressive weapon systems across the post-apocalyptic UK city in fast-paced gameplay.

There will be no love lost between hostile enemy classes in a bid to lay the foundations for a safe, human return as gamers’ skills will be tested to the limit.


The game is focused on visual atmosphere and tactical gameplay, it’s been important to Pixelbomb as gamers from the outset that every element of the game be as extraordinary as possible. They’ve made one of the most enhancing features of the game is its environments, set within the re-imagined post-apocalyptic landscape of Manchester UK 2281.

Featuring the real-life locations of Beetham Tower and Albert Square (complete with a Town Hall), the single-player videogame features iconic landmarks and 4 huge, hulking mechs to choose from. Beyond Flesh and Blood promises dropships, drones and menacing alien enemy classes that make the most of Unreal 4, as well as subtle artful homage to traditional Japanese mech culture with a British sci-fi twist.

  • PLUNGE  into an urban war zone, rip through enemies in an high-impact shooter on your mission to regain strategic control of the city.
  • RESTORE  the signal uplink to the Tree of Life and work with the U.G.R. to deploy and repair additional towers.
  • FIGHT  any forces that stand in your way; upgrading your mech with high-spec weapon systems.
  • USE  your Tactical Combat Frame (T.C.F.) to gain intel by hacking into security systems and solving strategic puzzles.
  • UNLOCK  diverse locations, advance your abilities, and fight grand scale battles beyond anything you’ve ever encountered before. From the moment you start playing, this becomes your world.

Beyond Flesh and Blood aims to fully explore its narrative themes and *enrich* the shooter experience through gameplay and gratuitous gore.

Beyond Flesh and Blood will provide a full 6-9 hours of story-led gameplay and will be releasing on Windows 10 this September, followed by Xbox One and PS4 in 2016.

Finally Destroying the Destroyer!

Hellooo again well I have finally completed Borderlands now this was the 1st time that I played this game and wow what a game it is I really enjoyed the whole aspect of getting bounties to complete in order to level up your character, the graphics of the game were also different and it wasn’t something I was used to but eventually playing the game for almost 3 days now I really did enjoy the whole aspect of the game, however it would have been better if you could customize the weapons on the vehicles you could drive, so let’s talk about the boss the was huge and grotesque even more worse than the Rack Hive. The last boss was called the destroyer the way it had to be killed was to shoot the tentacles and then aim for the eyes or mouth this took me a while to do because I was using a machine gun in the start however I remembered I picked up one of the alien weapons which done a lot of damage to the beast eventually I killed the beast and I had to take the artefact back to Tannis so she could look after it for another 200 years. At the very end something happened to claptrap my little robot friend and he became evil. Now it’s time for me to play the DLC content the 1st one is Dr Ned’s Zombie Island OOoOOoooooo Brains!!!!

Borderland’s The Epic Fight against the Rack Hive!

This is continuing on from yesterday’s blog on Borderland, well I’ve come pretty far today in the game and I have just ended up killing the Rake Hive and I tell you this was one tough boss! I haven’t faced a boss as hard as this one in the game yet it looks like a cross between a mammoth elephant and snuu snuu from the telletubies if you haven’t seen it. Anyways the way in which I had to kill him was to use my sniper and occasionally use my shotgun to take out the explosive kamikaze rake that were flying towards me I died a couple of times but I eventually defeated the beast I am now level 32 and it awesome because I found the final piece of the artefact which I was looking for haha! I forgot to mention that. The pieces of the artefact are to unlock a secret vault which is seen every 200 years I think I have almost completed the game considering I’ve been playing non-stop for the past 3 days. Now I am currently doing some final bounties in the city in in called New Haven let’s see were the story unfolds.

Serpent Sand

Ella looked up towards the sky, a dark cloud hung on the horizon, promising more rain than this part of the world had seen for decades. But as she and Brandon drew closer it soon became clear that the cloud was in fact smoke, the smell of burning filling their nostrils.

Under better circumstances Va’Lohren would have been a sight to behold, but the spires and turrets of buildings just gave the impression of chimneys as smoke billowed out of the city centre.

The pair went into the city, directing themselves by listening to the commotion, the strange cries and calls echoing around the city. In the middle of the city stood a square, strange bodies littered the floor, neither human nor belonging to The Fated. In the middle stood a huge podium with a stone ramp leading up to the centre. Flanking either side of this huge construction were two immense poles.

A Gateway stood proud between the two poles. But it was unlike anything Ella or Brandon had seen. Usually you could see straight through unimpeded, like looking through a window. But in this instance colours crackled across the surface, rippling like water. Ella’s hair started to stand on end.

Groups of The Fated stood around, paying no attention to Brandon or Ella, focused entirely on the portal. Four of The Fated stood at the base, hands raised, chanting something that sounded strange, yet familiar, to Ella.

The portal started shrinking in size, but the rainbow lightning that was arcing across the surface grew in fury. All of a sudden a huge arm appeared through the portal, its skin matching those of the bodies on the floor. Ella knew that this thing was colossal. The arm retracted.

The chanting grew louder as they struggled with the portal but then, all of a sudden, the chanters were blasted away. The pressure seemed to drop and everything that wasn’t secure to the floor started moving towards the portal. As the power of the suction grew, screams arose once they realised what was about to happen.

“Run!” Ella grabbed Brandon’s arm and tried to drag him away, “come on.”

Ella knew they wouldn’t make it away in time even if they employed all their powers but she started to run anyway.

Just as she turned, the portal opened again to its full height and the suction grew, the screams growing louder. Ella and Brandon, along with hundreds of the Va’Loherinians were dragged through in an instant. The portal crashed back together as if made from elastic, snapping shut with a devastating explosion.

People screamed. Buildings collapsed. Reddish sand blew throughout the city, covering everything. Huge Gateways opened throughout the city. Human in appearance, but with long slender limbs, creatures came storming through.     The creatures were attired in battle armour. Swords drawn they charged civilians cutting them where they stood. Men, women and children slaughtered because fear rooted them to the spot. Even if they could run it wouldn’t do much good. These creatures were fast.

            The sand was blowing faster, more and more coming through the portals as they opened around the city. She heard the screams over the other side of Royal Park. Sprinting towards the sounds she all of a sudden skidded to a halt. She wanted to go aid the people in trouble but something compelled her to stop. Suddenly sand blew through the park out of nowhere. Ella covered her face, the sand stinging the back of her hand, she could feel it cutting her skin. Then suddenly she couldn’t feel it anymore, although she could hear the sand rushing past. She lowered her hand and saw through the reddish sand a stream of golden sand coming towards her. It didn’t seem to be blown, but to slither through the air.

            As the sand got to Ella a sense of peace came over her. The sand wrapped around her, serpentine.

            Images rushed through her mind, and she felt an incredible power settle inside her, instantly she knew things, more than she wanted.

“We are The Fated,” she heard in head, “and we run.”

Ella floated, or at least that’s what it felt like. Nothing surrounded her, she hung in a void, she had knowledge of this from the Infusion, but it should only last for the briefest of seconds before you were on the other side of the portal.

Thoughts raced through her head, she worried she would be trapped in the void forever. She tried to shout out and even though she heard herself in her head, no sound escaped her mouth.

Something reached out and grabbed her arm, looking around she could see nothing, but as she focused on her arm a hand materialised, she traced this hand to its source and a man appeared.

Ella finished her first drink and was half way through her next before anyone came over to the empty seat. With a tip of his hat the stranger sat down at the bar and waved the barman over. Ella stole a few looks as she pretended to look behind her. He was dressed in old combat pants, desert patterned and he wore a black neck bandana. He pulled this down and knocked back his drink. Sand clung to his body and clothes, the skin of the desert. Something was special about this man, Ella could tell. She couldn’t help looking, it was as if she was drawn to him for a reason she didn’t know. All the other patrons didn’t seem to notice, to them he obviously seemed normal, no-one glanced at him oddly, yet she keenly felt a strange power emanating from him, but then it vanished and she could only vaguely recall what it felt like.

The mysterious man looked at her whilst she was stealing a look and met her eyes.

            “Hey there, I’m Brandon.”

            “Ella,” she said, and without missing a beat offered him her hand.

            Brandon’s eyes flicked down to the guns holstered at her hips, and looked back at her with a smile.

            “I assume you’re a Watchmen then?”

            “I’m just passing through. I highly doubt this town has a guard, they seem like simple folk.”


            Not knowing what to say next, she chose to say nothing.

            “Well I’ll be seeing you Ella.” Brandon got up and left and was quickly lost in the crowd of the inn.

With a silent gasp she tried to speak out loud, but again the sound was only in her head, “Brandon?”

“Ella?” She heard back, “what’s going on?”

Suddenly, the nothing changed. In the distance a black speck appeared, looking like it was miles away, but with no point of reference it was hard to judge. Within seconds it was upon them and Ella and Brandon flew through the exit portal and emerged into a charred clearing a little above ground.

Gravity took hold and dragged them both to the ground, the air exploding from their lungs.

Brandon groaned as he got to his hands and knees, Ella following suit. Ella instantly keeled over, falling back to the floor.

Ella exited the solitary abandoned house she had found. It stood there, defiant in the middle of the desert. She had taken shelter here from the heat and the man from the inn, Brandon, had showed up seeking refuge as well.

She looked up at the stars; they were the one constant you could rely upon when your world was turned upside down. Little pieces of wood stuck up here and there, and over there the sand was a little depressed, almost as if following what was once a street. At the end of the would-be-street she noticed a slight shimmer on the air, like the heat shimmer of a hot surface. But she knew what this meant, The Fated were about to come through.

            “Brandon!” she yelled.

            Brandon was through the door in an instant and just as he realised what was happening, the high pitched, ululating noise followed by thrumming, filled the night.

            The air was ripped open, and through the rent in space came five of the creatures. A roar of rage burst out of Brandon and he fired his rifle taking out two of The Fated in one shot. Ella was impressed. The creatures moved extremely fast and appeared to almost vanish, or so they thought, they didn’t know Ella had been Infused and she could move as fast as them.

            What did surprise Ella though is that Brandon had the ability to. She drew her pistols and gunned down one of the creatures. The two remaining enemies split, one after Brandon and one after Ella. The creature took a swipe at Ella but she dodged back and took a shot, killing the creature before it even regained its balance. Brandon made short work of his combatant, killing it a second after Ella finished up.

            Brandon stood over its body and fired into the back of the skull. A look of madness was in Brandon eyes, she could feel that strange power emanating from him, slightly different this time, but as before it vanished just as she become aware of it, and the madness faded from his eyes. Looking down at the corpse, seeing the gore he had just created, Brandon looked appalled.

            “I think we need to have a chat,” Ella said, “now.”

            Brandon and Ella talked and recounted their tales to each other, Brandon revealing he had the powers that Ella had but it fluctuated between being either really powerful and dominant to just being mild.

            “So that’s why you had that outburst?”

            “Yeah, though it only seems to happen during battle,” he replied, “over the years though it’s got more frequent.”

            “And what happens when it happens outside of battle.”

            “It won’t.”

            “You seem so sure,” Ella said.

            “I’ve already had to surrender some control to this thing, I won’t surrender any more to it.”

            Ella was skeptical but let it slide, for now he didn’t seem a threat but she would have to watch him.

            “Over the years have your powers grown along with the outbursts?”

            “A little, not in strength, more in stamina, I can use my powers for longer,” Brandon replied. After a brief silence Brandon asked, “what’s next?”

            “I’m heading to Va’Lohren, to find answers, how about you?”

            “I can’t let you go on your own now can I?” he said with a smile.

Ella screamed in pain as the last of her memories came rushing back, she remembered everything now. She drew in a deep breath and opened her eyes. It was night time, two moons hung in the sky, one brighter than the other. The dual moonlight provided enough light to see her surroundings clearly.

“Brandon?” She yelled. Brandon emerged from the tree line to her right, a Va’Loherinian walked a few paces behind him. “Behind you,” Ella drew her pistols and took aim, hesitant to shoot in case she hit Brandon.

“Put your gun down, it’s fine.”

Slowly she lowered her gun, finally holstering it at her hip.

“You must be who he was talking about.” The words were strange on her ears, like the chanting in the square. If she concentrated hard enough she could decipher it.

“Yes.” The word left her mouth and she understood what it meant but it didn’t sound like her native language. Brandon saw the confusion on her face.

“I know, it’s weird right? It’s because you’ve never spoken it before.”

Ella looked the stranger up and down, now she wasn’t desperately fighting against his race, they were actually quite a beautiful race.

“My name is Vi’shiel but your friend here has taken to calling me Vish, either is fine.”

Ella looked to Brandon, feeling out of her depth, but he seemed extremely calm and almost relaxed. Deciding to just go with it she said, “I’m Ella.”

“He has a lot to tell you,” said Brandon, excitement filling his voice. “You were out a while, so he filled me in while we waited.”

“Come, we’ve found space to sit just beyond the tree’s, away from all this destruction,” Vish turned without waiting to see if she followed.

Ella followed Vish and Brandon through the trees for a few yards finally emerging into a small clearing. They had dragged logs into the centre to form a seating area. In the middle of the makeshift benches, branches stood in a pile, ready to be ignited if it got too cold.

Vish started the tale of his people, it was nothing she didn’t already know from the Infusion. The Fated believed they were the chosen ones, fated to rule the cosmos but then their world had been invaded by creatures, like the ones that littered the square. The Fated were a violent race by nature but the sheer terror and strength of these new invaders caused them to flee.

The Sen’gahl came flooding through great tears in space, but more violent than the controlled portals The Fated used. They were bent on conquering, Vish and his people had put up a fight to protect their home world but in the end they had to give up.

“We opened portals and escaped through them, for whatever reason they had zoned in on this world.”

“We were scared, for the first time in our recorded history we were brought to our knees. If there was one race more powerful, what’s to say there wouldn’t be another? We didn’t know what we would encounter. We saw strange yellow lumps of moving metal, stone buildings as high as the sky. People screaming, cries of battle, or so we thought.

We needed to get a footing in this world if we had any hope of surviving. Everywhere we went we encountered resistance, but there were a lot of us.”

“What about the white sand?”

“It was sent out to get someone from your race to come to our side, act as a go between, the reward for doing this was the powers, but as far as we were aware it didn’t work.”

“So how many more people like me and Brandon are there?”

“No more than five.”

Ella was stunned. She knew a lot of what she was told, but the sand hadn’t informed her she was meant to act as envoy. All she remembered after that moment is waking up, the world changed. Sand blowing furiously everywhere, it deteriorated everything.

The temperature had started to drop, Ella shivered, “so what now?”

“We find out where we are, and how the hell we get home,” Brandon flashed a reassuring smile, but she saw uncertainty littering his face. That said, he had put forward a good suggestion.

Where were they indeed?

Excerpt from my new book: Hood

After two years worth of writing, Months worth of editing and hack-sawing more than half of the book and then rewriting the whole dang thing again, I’m happy to present a snippit from my new book: Hood, Book One of the American Rebirth Series.
As any writer will tell you, even a finished book still feels like it needs editing. So I’m going to forego my endless need to tweak and just toss it up. Here goes:

With a click light filled the room, so bright Hood had to turn his face and jam his eyes shut.
“You’re getting full of yourself,” came the hoarse voice of the old sheriff.
The idea that the sheriff had Hood’s life in his hands was a dark seed in his mind. He needed to buy some time, find out why he was here, why he was still alive.
“Yeah, you’re probably right,” Hood answered at length. The yellow floodlight nailed to the wall still shined in his eyes, but he adjusted enough to be able to see that they were in an portable arch-shaped metal warehouse.
“Of course I’m right.” the old man said, pacing in front of him. “Sneaking through my land, stealing from me and thinking you’d just run back home unmolested. You and your self-righteousness. I swear, I can smell your naiveté on the wind.”
Hood licked his lips and kept silent. The old man leaned in close to Hood. His breath smelled like old cigarettes. His bald, middle aged face was worn and weary around blue eyes. It was a look of disappointment, the look of a vulture flying over picked bones. His search was over.
“You know what it is that did you in,” the sheriff said with a smile and focused eyes. “It’s pride. The same pride that god saw in us when he smote us down.”
Hood smirked, his head leaned forward with his brow keeping the light out of his eyes.
“Granted, I’ve never read the good book cover to cover, but I’m pretty sure you don’t qualify as the godly type.”

The sheriff swung his pistol at Hood’s face. The handle connected with his eyebrow, his head snapping back from the blow. The pain seared, his head feeling numb. The worn barrel of the sheriff’s pistol hovered in front of Hood’s right eye. Inside the barrel was darkness.

A tight frown quivered on The sheriff’s face. “You don’t talk to me about godliness. You’re just a mongrel slinking around this hell on earth.”
Hood breathed in slowly, closing his eyes. Despite being provoked the Sheriff still hadn’t shot him. Gotta keep him talking.

At long last the fifth installation of Dragon Wars is finally here! I kow you’ve all been waiting patiently to see what happens to Rain and company. Not to mention the delicious Lt. Micah Caine. ;-) In Dragon Corps we finally get some of the answers you’ve all been waiting for!

Dragon Corps_200x300Stop Evil. Save the future.

Rain Mauri’s plan seemed so simple. She didn’t start the fight, but she will end it and she is willing to do whatever it takes. For her people. For the man she loves.

But nothing is simple in this war-torn world filled with monstrous dragons and violent men. If she wants to prevail, Rain will need more than strength, grit, and courage. She may need to sacrifice all she holds dear. Including the man she loves.

Available NOW on: AMAZON

(Available soon on iBooks, Nook, Kobo, and in paperback.)

Dragon Wars FAQ:

Q: Is this the last Dragon Wars book?

A: For now.

Q: Does it finish the story? No cliffhangers?

A: No cliffhangers! I promise. This book brings the overarching story of the last four books to a conclusion. HOWEVER, I have loads of ideas for other books in this world, so there will likely be a prequel story with our favorite crotchety Albie and a story following the ex-Marine, Ben, into the ruined city. I might even do a story set in the future with Jinx as hero.

Q: Oh, goodie! When?

A: I have no idea! Right now I’ve got a lot on my plate, so these will definitely be in the future. If you have a favorite character you’d like to read more about, let me know!

Review: Salt A Post Apocalyptic Thriller by Colin F. Barnes


I’ll admit that I may have entered the giveaway for this book based solely on its cover.( I know, I know!) However it would seem that my shallow lust for a pretty picture paid off because this book was amazing!

I read a lot of post-apocalyptic novels but not many thrillers. It’s probably for the best though as I don’t think my poor heart could handle an abundance of this type of perfected suspense. I literally bit my nails down to the quick while reading this, my heart hammered like crazy in my chest and I stayed up all night for two nights in a row to finish this.My advice, save this book for weekend reading unless you want to risk being late for work.

I really can’t gush enough about this book. The cover, the plot, the characters are all perfection. The flotilla was so perfectly described that I swear this book even made me a little seasick :P

This story will be playing in my head for quite a while, what a wild ride. Thank you Colin for hosting this giveaway and for the hours of entertainment this book granted me.

The Scales: Balancing Justice and Vigilantism

While many post-War Americans conduct themselves as though the law does not exist, the early 24th century is not entirely void of order and sense.

Employed (or, perhaps more accurately, encouraged) by the Church of Oruvos, the Scales act as a loosely-knit and barely-regulated network of individuals tasked with keeping order in whatever manner they so choose. They are meant to serve the purpose once maintained by pre-War police, but in actuality, function much more like an organized mafia. If the Veilcrafters are the eyes of the Church, the Scales are its fist.

The Scales

“Uphold the law? What? Oh, shit, yeah, I forgot. That’s us.” – Samuel Miller, Los Angeles Scale Coterie leader

*     *     *

While the Veilcrafters exist to provide intelligence and control information, and the Iron Reticle is utilized for messy assassinations, the Scales are far less shrouded in mystery and much more ubiquitous to the public at large. Partially in reference to Oruvos’ snakelike visage, and partly to invoke the balance of justice, the Scales are the Church of Oruvos’s law enforcement, and they are far from balanced in the name of the law.

The Scales consist primarily of mercenaries, the children and grandchildren of pre-War soldiers, and other individuals with a taste for vigilantism who for whatever reason, be it piety or a paycheck, voluntarily submitted to the direction of the Oruvian Church. Through them, the Church administers punishment and controls actions, relying on a healthy mixture of guilt, fear and proactive punishment to keep American society flourishing in a way that is profitable to Oruvian goals.

While the Scales are intended to be the Oruvian version of pre-War police, they are much more akin to the mobsters of old, divvying up territories based loosely on the Church’s suggestion, but primarily according to their own desires. They have established “Coteries,” and each Coterie maintains order in a particular sector of every city, reporting directly back to the Church.

Scales are well looked after, paid an impressive salary of scrap and stims, and afforded plenty of flexibility in the performance of their duties. This astounding amount of leeway by the Church is for the purpose of limiting personal motivation and drive, the intended result being that Scales are happy to execute orders and call it a day. Upward mobility is not encouraged or provided. Additionally, Scale members who overstep their bounds are quickly put down, creating a sort of natural selection in which those Scales who do as they’re told are allowed to live quite well, and those that cause trouble aren’t.

Allowed to live, that is.

B.C. A.D. A.H. – After Humanity (Playwriting)

I was looking through some old homework assignments from my creative writing class at university this year and came across this dramatic scene homework task. I really love playwriting but I hardly ever do it because it’s a lot more technical and formulaic than ordinary short story writing but I’d really like to get into it more. One day writing a play that would be put on in a theatre would be the dream. Have a read – enjoy!

B.C. A.D. A.H. – After Humanity


  • Malicia
  • Leekie

Interior of a dark underground room with ladders to the left leading up to the outside, letting in dim light. The room is littered with boxes and old rubbish. Malicia and Leekie scavenge for food.

Leekie: [Rummages through boxes with a slightly hunched back and a limp.] I-I can’t believe we found this p-place. We must have p-passed by that trap door 20 t-times in the last week and we only just noticed-

Malicia: [Interrupts.] Shut up! [Pauses to hear something.]

Leekie: What is it?

Malicia: Nothing. I thought I heard something. Don’t talk so loudly. Someone could walk by and hear us. Hurry up and find something so we can get out of here before they get back.

Leekie: Who?

Malicia: The person who built this place. I don’t think they’ll be too happy to find us stealing from them.

Leekie: I’m sure, whoever they are, they c-can’t be all that b-bad.

Malicia: [Confused and irritable.] What? What makes you say that?

Leekie: Well, they’ve been s-storing food and water so they d-don’t eat, you know, what the o-others e-eat.

Malicia: Perhaps. But think about this, it seems like there’s no food or water left here, so if this nice person comes home and finds us, what do you think they’ll try to eat?

Leekie: [Visibly shudders.] D-don’t s-say things like that! You know I don’t like it when you s-say things like that.

Malicia: You need to toughen up and accept what’s going on out there, Leekie. I might not always be here to protect you. Now, hurry up and keep looking.

Malicia and Leekie search through several boxes and drawers. Leekie finds a chocolate chip cookie and a stack of money and expensive jewellery in a bottom drawer.

Leekie: [Shouts.] Malicia, l-look!

Malicia: Shush!

Leekie: L-look! Look!

Malicia: [Runs over and covers Leekie’s mouth then looks in the drawer.] A cookie. [Laughs in disbelief.] A whole chocolate chip cookie!

Leekie: [Confused.] A cookie?

Malicia: Surely you remember cookies?

Leekie shakes his head.

Malicia: [Delicately picks up the cookie with both hands and they both stare at it in awe, ignoring the money and jewellery completely.] My mum used to make these. Chocolate chip and porridge oats and oatmeal raisin. They were the best.

Leekie: [Without looking away from the cookie.] D-do you miss her?

Malicia: [Pauses and looks thoughtful.] No. Don’t be so stupid. Now, how do we decide who gets this?

Leekie: [Whining tone of voice.] Can’t we share?! Why c-can’t we share? I’m so hungry. All I’ve eaten in the last four days w-was that half can of beans that I found in the old t-town!

Malicia: Yes I know, I had the other half! I’m just as hungry as you, Leekie. But let’s face it. I am the grafter. I am the one who scouts the lands and searches the houses when you’re too scared. I need more energy than you do.

Leekie: Well, can I at least have one of the g-gold lumps?

Malicia: The what?

Leekie: [Points to chocolate chips.] The gold lumps!

Malicia: Those are chocolate. After…after it happened, people started calling it gold but its real name is chocolate.

Leekie: [Enunciates.] Choc-o-late. [Pauses.] They’ve forgotten a-about us, you know, Malicia.

Malicia: Who?

Leekie points upwards.

Malicia: They haven’t forgotten. They’re just testing us.

Leekie: W-will things get worse?

Malicia: [Irritable.] I don’t know, Leekie.

Leekie: I still have t-teeth-mark scares on my leg. That day was b-b-

Malicia: [Interrupts.] Scars, not scares, Leekie. And don’t talk about that. You’ll give yourself nightmares again.

Leekie: You give me nightmares.

Malicia: [Surprised.] What?

Leekie: [Suddenly brave.] All my n-nightmares are about you becoming one of them. Sometimes, Malicia, I think you might be capable of it. Sometimes, the way you look at me. It scares me and I think I should have the cookie because I’m not mean or devious or dishonest, like you!

Malicia: [Furious.] How can you say that? Everything I do is for you! You would be dead by now if it wasn’t for me.

Leekie: [Venom in his voice.] No, I wouldn’t! I could survive on my own. You’re always putting me down and making me feel small but I could survive on my own!

Malicia: [With a smug expression.] Prove it.

Malicia is still holding the cookie with both hands. Leekie puts his face in Malicia’s hands and grabs the cookie with his mouth, accidentally biting Malicia’s fingers in the process. Malicia screams in pain and holds her bleeding hand. Leekie doesn’t pause to apologise but instead eats the whole cookie in seconds like a wild animal. When he finishes, Leekie and Malicia stare at each other in anger. Quick footsteps followed by clattering noises come from above, the trap door closes and the room is suddenly in complete darkness.

Review: Terminator Genisys

James Cameron will be spinning in his Deepsea Challenger. Actually, he’s probably not. $$$.

*spoiler free*


Follow ILT on twitter @laidbaremedia

Going to the cinema on your own is fine, rather enjoyable at times actually. Going to the cinema on your own because no one associated with you will pay actual money to sit through your choice of picture is usually a sign that you’re in for a bad time. Not even faint nostalgia could drag my companions along to witness Alan Taylor’s Terminator Genisys, and when later I confirmed the stark reality of their suspicions they were hardly surprised, merely shrugging with an air of common sense, their $18 safe and secure from the hands of Paramount and Co. So I called this taking one for the team, a vaguely satisfying justification for what was essentially a waste of mine, and everyone else in the world’s time.

The latest flogging of a long destroyed franchise, Genisys is so far removed from the original concept and development of James Cameron’s first two flicks, that, like Jurassic World, it’s simply a shallow interpretation of continuation; part-lazy sequel, part-lazy reboot – which ultimately adds up to little more than a series of audience drawing one-liners and visual throwbacks. It’s great to see Arnie back on the big screen after all these years, and there is at least some rarely well-reasoned exposition thrown in to deal with his aging real life self, but he still inevitably falls far closer to the unfortunate T-800 of T3, rather than his timeless T2 counterpart. The great thing about T2 is that most of the one-liners, despite their cheesy-as-hell nature, didn’t feel too forced. “I’ll be back”, for example, was a well embedded, almost blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment during the Cyberdyne standoff/tear gas sequence, blending perfectly with the tone of the scene, instead of the blatant OH LOOK HE SAID THE LINE rehash included here. Playing the Terminator for laughs saw the whole thing basically end quality-wise less than five minutes into T3, yet a whole twelve years later they’re still reeling out the same, tired old jokes. He’s a machine in a human world – yeah, we got it, cheers.

The main man isn’t alone – pretty much every character is badly written and poorly performed across the board. Where the umpteenth incarnation of John Connor is concerned, it’s rather ironic that the most interesting interpretation and least irritating portrayal of his character remains immortalised in child form almost twenty-five years on (*tips hat to Eddie Furlong*). Emilia Clarke does her best as Sarah Connor, but she’s a fairly limited actress at best. Character-wise too, it’s a poor piece of casting. Even in her original 1984 days as normal, working, social gal, Sarah was a bit of tomboy who wasn’t merely presented as a standout looker as such. She also looked like she lived in the mid-1980s. Now Sarah is, erm, Emilia Clark, featuring shoehorned boob shots with little to differentiate character from actress. It’s all fairly patronising toward both the character and audience, made worse by Clarke struggling to make any sort of memorable mark. Considering Taylor directed her previously in Game of Thrones, it’s a shame he wasn’t able to drag a third dimension out of her this time around. Having said that, it’s hardly her fault the script is as limited and cringe-worthy as it is. Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney, the dull 21st century action-man personified) is clean-shaven. This alone makes his character untenable. Oh and J.K. Simmons is in there somewhere as a total wreck-head who somehow, in 2017, is still holding down a job as a relatively elevated (i.e. plain clothed) police detective, despite driving around while permanently off his tits on the sauce.

Virtually every other aspect of the film fails miserably. There’s nothing even remotely iconic, though not through lack of trying. I won’t go into detail regarding the various holes present across the plot, timeline, and characters – the internet has long beaten me to the punch – let’s just say they’re abundant throughout. The comparisons to Jurassic World are obvious, but what grinds my gears a tad is the fact that, unlike our dinosaur chums, the Terminator mythology at least has some sort of room for expansion. Now they already fucked that up of course with Bale and Salvation, but instead of giving it another go it was decided the following production would go down the quick buck route of regurgitating the same old shit from back in the day and hoping people would go for it. Even then the powers that be manage to insult the spirit of originals still further by persisting with overly cartoony (and shit CGI-based) violence rather than actual violence, purely to secure a PG-13/12A rating, thus squeezing every last penny from theatregoers by making it acceptable to bring the kiddies along. Fuck off.

The Darkening: getting to know the characters – The girl

Who are you? What are you doing here? Wait, wait, don’t kill me! I just want some food, that’s all. Stay back, don’t come closer. I’ll… I’ll… I’ll stab you, I swear it. The glass will cut you in no time, you hear? Stay back. That’s better. I don’t want to hurt you, but I will if I have to. All I want is some food. Do you have any? Look, I’m not going to hurt you, unless you attack me, okay? What’s that? What’s that in your hand? Is it… is it food? Just that? Half a raw rat? Okay. I’m so hungry. Feels like I haven’t eaten in days.

Why are you looking at me like that? No, I don’t know why I am like that. I just am. Don’t worry, I won’t hurt you. You’re the first person I’ve seen in days. Everything is empty. Not a single soul for miles. What’s going on? I saw houses and farms on my way here, but there was no one living there. It’s as if everyone vanished. I thought this place was empty, was looking for something to eat and a place to sleep. I didn’t mean to scare you.

I came by a house on my way here. It was a big white house, with two rows of windows, all of them smashed though, and the place looked like it was about to fall apart. I went inside, called for help. I was hungry. They had a pen but there were no animals. Some chickens ran around free, but I couldn’t catch any of them. Fast birds. I saw… I saw remains, bones and… and… What happened? On my way here, I saw a wide road, full of rusted cars and everyone in them…

There are big structures to the east, I saw them on my way here. Maybe we could go there and look for food or other surv –

What’s your name? I… I don’t know my name. I can’t remember anything, except the last couple of days. I woke up in the middle of nowhere, and I’ve been walking since then, but nothing before that. As if I didn’t exist. Don’t go! Please, don’t go. Are you the only one left? Why are you afraid of me? What is wrong with me? Are we going to die too? Am I going to die? Are we the last ones? Help me, please!

Believe the Hype! [Movie Review - Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)]

Movie: Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)


Director: George Miller

Genre: Action

Cast: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Nathan Jones

Writers: George Miller, Brendan McCarthy, Nick Lathouris

Rating: 5/5 stars

With exhilarating action and a surprising amount of narrative heft, “Mad Max: Fury Road” brings George Miller’s post-apocalyptic franchise roaring vigorously back to life. The film delivers and delivers big time. There’s no clearer or more succinct way to put it. 30 years after last appearing on the big screen, Mad Max roars back with a vengeance.

Mad Max Fury Road - Tom Hardy - 2015 Movies (2)      Miller once again gears up for a post-apocalyptic action-thriller with “Fury Road”, the fourth outing in the “Mad Max” film series. Set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, almost everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life such as water and fuel. Within this world exists two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order. We are reintroduced to Max, still a man of action and few words who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos. The second insurgent is Furiosa, also a woman of action and one who believes her path to survival and possible salvation may be achieved if she can take a handful of oppressed, tormented, incarcerated beautiful young women across the desert back to her childhood homeland. Max and Furiosa team up in the most unlikely of alliances – and for polar opposite reasons – to stand up to “the man”, get their hands dirty, and get the job done.

mad-max      “Fury Road” has visionary moments, speed, and a wild sense of daring. You stumble out of the theater giddy about what films (even action movies) can actually do when their set their mind to it, transported by the breathtaking velocity in this battering ram of a picture that just goes, goes, goes, and then keeps on going. Even after two viewings, I feel as though I’ve only scratched the surface of “Mad Max: Fury Road”. George Miller’s bleak, badass actioner is astonishingly dense for a big-budget spectacle, not only in its imagery and ideas but in the complex interplay between them.

Mad-Max-Fury-Road-Title-Card      It also represents a certain kind of hope that’s highly implausible to materialize – for as technology continues to improve and digital effects wizardry enhances exponentially, here’s an old-school master that refreshingly gets to the basics and uses the powers at his disposal for good rather than to score an easy way out. The action is fast and furious and totally bonkers. And yet the style is totally in keeping with its predecessors while being innovative and boldly new: Old West showdowns meets funk mayhem meets feminist drama. Seriously! But the movie has so much more to do with the architecture of the frame and Miller’s delight in throwing things right at the face of the audience than any sneaky feminism. There’s a kind of kinetic genius to the movie, which is essentially one long chase, adrenaline-pumping chase sequence.

Mad-Max-Fury-Road-lovely-day      We have to admit that Hollywood’s franchise hunger has reached the point where any level of cynicism regarding a sequel, reboot, or re-imagining is defensible, and given that it had been 30 years since the last “Mad Max” installment, one could be forgiven for approaching this Tom Hardy-led continuation of the saga with a somewhat jaundiced eye. But all that time away from the franchise clearly gave Director/co-writer George Miller plenty of ideas, because “Fury Road” is that rarest of blockbuster beasts: an action- thriller that isn’t content to merely string together set pieces. In fact, it’s a surprisingly thoughtful film, one whose message is afforded equal importance alongside epic action sequences arranged with balletic, eye-popping grace. Amidst all this, Hardy’s Max Rockatansky remains a man of few words – in fact, he spends a good deal of the film with a mask covering his mouth – but alongside co-star Charlize Theron, he grounds the movie’s gonzo outbursts with palpable human emotion. Believe all the hype, and then believe it some more. “Mad Max: Fury Road” will melt your face off, and then slam it back on.

End of Days – Susan Ee (Penryn and the End of Days #3)

Title: End of Days

Author: Susan Eeend of days image

Genre: Post-apocalyptic, dystopian, drama, action

Thoughts: The final instalment of the trilogy is finally here! I was waiting and waiting and waiting for this book to come out, and here it is!! Ee’s End of Days is a great example of a book that you literally can’t put down. You read it as you get ready for the day, while brushing your teeth, before and after bed every day. It had me hooked. I read the whole book in two days, and they were school days.

End of Days has the same sarcastic humour that the last two books had. The same characters, but somehow, they were made better in this book. The plot is very different from World After and Angelfall with Raffe and Penryn falling into hell. Literally. There they find all sorts of unnameable horrors and we all find out the Penryn is afraid of maggots. Luckily Raffe saved the day.

Again in this book, the metaphorically ‘vault’ in Penryn’s head gets fuller and fuller as she experiences more and more strong emotions. She reunites with her mother and her sister. The world seems to be getting better. Until she falls into Hell. In the Pit, Raffe’s Watchers are there, and both Penryn and Raffe do the unthinkable. It’s here we find out that Penryn is terrified of maggots.

“Maggots are freaky hideous,’ I say, getting up. I try to salvage some dignity, but I can’t help but shiver and shake my hands in the air. It’s an instinctive impulse, one I’m not up for resisting right now.
‘You’ve fought off a gang of men twice your size, killed an angel warrior, stood up to an archangel, and wielded an angel sword.’ Raffe cocks his head. ‘But you scream like a little girl when you see a maggot?’
‘It’s not just a maggot,’ I say. ‘A hand burst out of the ground and grabbed my ankle. And maggots crawled out of it and tried to burrow into me. You would scream like a little girl too if that happened to you.’
‘They didn’t try to burrow into you. They were just crawling. It’s what maggots do. They crawl.’
‘You don’t know anything.”

This ending wasn’t the best, if you ask me. It might be slightly because I didn’t actually want it to end at all, but all books must. And this one ended way too quickly. When I heard End of Days was coming out, I assumed it would be a big book, with all that’s going on. But no, most of the problems are solved in just 435 pages. And yes I say most for a reason. There is one trouble that doesn’t get solved. But I believe it needs this not-happily-ever-after ending, to match the dystopian mood of the rest of the book. Still, I think Ee should have done an extra chapter at the end, maybe 10 years after to see what’s happening. That would have made it much better.

Why should you read it: If you loved the post-apocalyptic, dystopian setting of ­Angelfall, and you should have, then you will absolutely adore End of Days. It will make you sad, and laugh, and sometimes, like all books, it’ll make you want to yell at the characters in the book. But that happens in all good books, which just backs up my theory that the Angelfall series is one of the best I have read.

Book in a word: Addictive

World After – Susan Ee (Penryn and the End of Days #2)

Title: World After

Author: Susan Eeworld after image

Genre: Post-apocalyptic, dystopia, drama

Thoughts: The amazing sequel to the bestselling Angelfall is here. And it was awesome!! It starts off right in the action with everyone thinking Penryn is dead. Her stitched up sister is holding her hand, her crazy mother is rambling in her made-up language and Raffe is still in shock from seeing Penryn ‘die’. Not to mention having deadly bat-like demon wings sewn on instead of his beautiful snowy white ones.

Also, sarcastic and funny comments are back in book 2. Ee is just great at creating the dark and sinister mood in the right places, but can also change it in an instant to a bright and happy one.

To tell the truth, this book was great but not as good as Angelfall, I just wasn’t into it as much. Still, it’s better than quite a few other books, and still a great read. I’m not sure why I didn’t like it as much. The writing is still amazing, the plot unfolding with unexpected events, and the characters are still generally the same. One reason might have been that most of the book was describing Penryn, her family and where she is, whereas in Angelfall, the book is more about Penryn and Raffe. I liked this feature in book one, especially the never-ending sarcasm between the two. Even though, World After does have a little more of Dee-Dum, which is quite entertaining.

“I’m gonna be sick,” I said
“I’m ordering you not to,” says Obi.
“Ah, don’t say that,” says Dee-Dum. “She’s a born rebel. She’ll puke just to make a point.”

Another thing that is talked about in this book is the ‘vault’ in Penryn’s head. This metaphor describes all the emotions, feelings and things that are going on around Penryn. In the book, she can’t let these things get to her head, as they will distract her from the responsibility of looking after her family. After something happens, or she feels a strong emotion, she will quickly throw it into the ‘vault’ in her head and lock the doors. Penryn can’t afford to open it, as all the memories, emotions and feelings will come flowing out.

The ending of this book, I think is in the right place at the right time. Even though I didn’t really want it to end, I knew there was the final book to come, so I took comfort in that.

Why should you read it: This book is still one of my favourites even though it’s not as good as the first. It was quite a bit of sarcastic humour, as well as some sad, slow-paced events. It still has the amazing Penryn and Raffe as the main heroes, with added ones on the side.

Book in a word: satisfying

Rating: 8/10

Angelfall – Susan Ee (Penryn and the End of Days #1)

Title: AngelfallAngelfall

Author: Susan Ee

Genre: Post-apocalyptic, dystopian, drama

Thoughts: This book was awesome!!! Plot, setting, characters, and genre. It was perfect. It is set in a post-apocalyptic world, where angels rule. But these angels aren’t your normal angels. They have destroyed the human world, reducing them to barely less than animals. Tsunamis and earthquakes have ruined cities and towns. Street gangs rule the day, while fear and angels rule the night. Penryn, her younger, disabled sister Paige, and their crazy mother are just another one of these scavenging families trying to feed themselves. Until and angel warrior falls outside their doorstep. This book has a very fast paced story-line, dramatic and action-packed. Definitely not what I expected from a dark, dystopian story. Ee includes sarcastic dialogue, which made me snort out loud a couple of times, as well as some tragic events. The hero, Penryn, is a strong and fighting teen left in charge of the family when her mum went insane. She is smart, witty and knows how to lead.

“You’re lying. Why would you tell me that?”

“Maybe I’m not afraid of you.”

“Maybe you should be.”

Susan Ee (Angelfall (Penryn & the End of Days, #1))

But if you take all these witty comebacks and entertaining comments, Penryn is just a teenage girl struggling to deal with what the world has come to. Quite a few time in the book, she mentions taking the weight of the family, on her shoulders. As her mum is completely mad, her dad gone and her sister in a wheelchair, Penryn alone must deal with this huge responsibility. So she uses the attitude and sarcasm to hide this struggle. So really Ee has created, not only an amusing, laugh-out-loud story, but a novel which deals with troubles in the family and self-esteem.

“We have to get out of here,” says Mom with her arm protectively around Paige. Her voice is clear and full of purpose. I look up at her in surprise. Before I can stop myself, hope blooms inside me. She sounds full of authority and confidence. She sounds like a mother ready and determined to lead her daughters to safety. She sounds sane.

Then she says, “They’re after us.” Hope shrivels and dies inside me, leaving a hard lump where my heart should be. I don’t need to ask who “they” are. According to my mother, “they” have been after us for as long as I can remember… I nod, taking the weight of my family responsibilities back on my shoulders.

Susan Ee (Angelfall (Penryn & the End of Days, #1))

So as you can see, there’s actually quite a deep meaning.

Some parts of this book made me want to laugh, but Ee can change the mood so well from smart and happy, to dark and sad. Also the ending. The ending is just excellent, and explosive. And those are just the E’s. Totally unexpected. And the best thing is… It’s part of a trilogy. Two more books written by the amazing Susan Ee, just waiting to be read!

Should you read this book: This book is undoubtedly my favourite book at the moment, and I guarantee you’ll love it too. I will remember it and if you haven’t read it yet, get your hands on this book now! Reasons include strong female character, 5 star plot and characters, and just… Everything!

Book in a word: Enthralling
