Tons of fun and laughs, and my 6-year old daughter LOVED it (wants to see it again). Not QUITE as good as 2014's Lego Movie but almost. I had a ton of laugh-out-loud moments along with this one other guy in the theatre (we seemed to enjoy the same jokes) and each time my girl asks me, 'what's so funny?". It's one of those movies that's perfect for adults and children alike on very different levels. Lots of really special moments (I can't explain the cinematography of lonely Batman watching lobster heating up in the...

Hidden Fences Figures tells the true story of the contributions of African-American women at NASA at the beginning of the Space Race. It's very well made, put-together and inspirational.

But it's all related enough to catch the eye of anyone with a passing interest in either. Picking up and flicking through the accessible quick start rules shows this to be typical miniatures fare. There is...

When you open a modern board game, you don't expect to find what looks like a Parcheesi board. You especially don't expect to find it set in the midst of lush Mesopotamian jungle or to be decorated with bizarre sigils. Then you flip through the lavishly illustrated rules, picking out phrases like "blood mist" and "cannibalism". We're not in Kansas any more. I'm not sure quite where we are, but I don't think it's a place I'd want to go on holiday. Not least because it's full of zombies and zimbies, horrible diminutive cannibals which owe...
