BatWhilst I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, nothing can beat a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. I don't do 3D movies so put the red and green spex away!

  30. It has to be the Star Wars films – full of excellently designed robots/droids (some with great personalities), many of which I collected as figures many years ago.

  31. Transformers, mainly because they were able to “translate” the animated robotics of the original TV series onto the big screen in live action (admittedly via CGI) so successfully that my inner child was both impressed and regressed!

  33. Transformers is my favourite – great family entertainment, and I loved watching the robot transform and the storyline was excellent too.
