‘The Complex’ Review

  • Nerdly
‘The Complex’ Review
The Complex is a sci-fi interactive movie game from Wales Interactive and is available to “play” on the Nintendo Switch, Windows, MacOs, XBox One and PS4.

I’ve played games like this before, such as The Bunker, so I know the genre. It’s basically a movie in which you make the odd decision, taking the story into unique directions. This, while not especially open and diverse in the way it plays, does offer plenty of story roads that you can go down, and in turn offers some replayability. The Complex itself has numerous endings to unlock, all depending on what you choose to do as the story goes on.

Now, the story itself follows Dr Amy Tenent, who you make decisions for, who is locked in a lab in London with a fellow scientist and a bio-terrorist who is locked in a chamber and dying. It follows an outbreak,

Raging about the state of UK politics is one of life’s pleasures at the moment, and the inhabitants of The Bunker make it an artform.

Anthony Hopkins movies: 16 greatest films ranked worst to best

Anthony Hopkins movies: 16 greatest films ranked worst to best
Sir Anthony Hopkins received his fifth Academy Award nomination (for “The Two Popes”) earlier this week. With his impressive body of work, it’s somewhat stunning to realize he was 54 years old before he became a household name.

Hopkins was born on New Year’s Eve in 1937 to working-class parents in Wales, and was inspired by fellow Welsh actor Richard Burton to study drama. He found success in theater, eventually becoming an understudy for Laurence Olivier, successfully taking over when Olivier became ill. Although his career was thriving in the theater, Hopkins decided to try his luck in television and films, and soon received his break in 1968 playing Richard the Lionheart in “The Lion in Winter.” Hopkins worked steadily on both the small and big screens, often receiving praise for his work. However, it was over 20 years before he became one of the most recognized actors in the world for

‘Simulacra’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

  • Nerdly
Whilst we’ve reviewed a number of Wales Interactive’s Fmv releases, this is actually the first time I’ve played one of their games for myself. You see, I felt out of love with this particular sub-genre of video gaming some years ago and have only just got back into playing this style of game thanks to the Limited Run Games releases of Night Trap on the Nintendo Switch, and the re-release if the underrated “classic” Double Switch on the PS4. Both of those titles featured brilliant remasters of games from the 16-bit era, when Fmv was delivered on cartridge and video compression was virtually unheard of. In the intervening years, despite huge leaps in technology, it seems the Fmv genre was somehow left in the past for many.

But not for the folks at Wales Interactive… The spiritual successor to the viral found-phone horror game Sara Is Missing,

Julie Anne Robinson’s CannyLads Sells 5 Projects To NBC & Fox With ‘A.P. Bio’, ‘Whiskey Cavalier’ & ‘Greek’ Creators
Excluisve: Julie Anne Robinson has set up five projects — three dramas — through her CannyLads production company. They include hourlong Snap at Fox, from Whiskey Cavalier creator David Hemingson; Love And… at NBC, from Greek creator Sean Smith; and The Bunker at NBC, from graphic novelist and writer Joshua Hale Fialkov; as well as single-camera half-hours The Park at NBC, from A. P. Bio creator Mike O’Brien & Shelly Gossman; and Post Office, also at NBC, from writer Amy Hubbs.

All five projects hail from Universal Television, a division of NBCUniversal Content Studios. They stem from the new first-look deal BAFTA and Golden Globe-nominated director Robinson inked at the studio in July. She is executive producing and attached to direct all five, with CannyLads Head of Development Kelly Pancho co-executive producing.

Snap, which has a script commitment plus penalty, is co-production between between Universal TV and Fox Entertainment.

12 Actors Who Played Hitler in Movies and TV, From Charlie Chaplin to Taika Waititi (Photos)
Playing a villain in a movie is a great career move for an actor, but playing a real life, universally known monster like Adolf Hitler is not necessarily a decision that’s made lightly. Even in the history of countless movie Nazis, having the guts and gravitas to actually play Hitler is something else entirely. Taika Waititi, who portrays a satirical, imaginary version of Der Fuhrer inside a young boy’s mind for his latest film “Jojo Rabbit,” only got his movie made under the studio’s condition that he play the part of Hitler. But he’s not the only one who made that leap:

Anthony Hopkins – “The Bunker” (1981)

Though he’s more famous for his other villainous turn as Hannibal Lecter, Anthony Hopkins portrayed Hitler during his downfall era as the Fuhrer was hiding out in an underground bunker. “The Bunker” was a three-hour, TV movie event on CBS,

Emmys afterlife? Anthony Hopkins (‘Westworld’) and Ron Cephas Jones (‘This Is Us’) could both win for playing dead characters
TV fans, we won’t blame you for getting chills if you see two ghosts floating up to the podium this year to accept their Emmys. Both Anthony Hopkins (“The Leftovers”) and Ron Cephas Jones (“This Is Us”) are contenders at the 2018 Emmys for playing characters who died in the first seasons of their shows. Hopkins is up for Best Drama Supporting Actor for portraying the dearly departed Robert Ford on HBO’s sci-fi series, while Jones is looking good for a nomination as Best Drama Guest Actor for his role as cancer victim William Hill on NBC’s family drama.

Hopkins received a lead nomination last year for “Westworld,” but his reduced screen time in Season 2 as the theme park creator’s virtual self prompted HBO to campaign him as a supporting actor.

‘The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

  • Nerdly
It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Fmv games, Wales Interactive have released some thoroughly enjoyable games recently with The Bunker and Late Shift and I also played the mystery game Contradiction which although flawed was an enjoyable experience. With The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker, despite its plus points, I found myself wearying of the limitations of the genre and couldn’t work out if I was just expecting too much or if I was just burned out from playing too many similar games on the trot.

The mystery that forms the backbone of the game is that one of Dr Dekker’s patients has seemingly murdered him and you are the replacement therapist who has to not only try to solve his murder but also cure his patients along the way. The game plays out through several chapters which are split into days, on each

Anthony Hopkins (‘Westworld’) enters supporting Emmy race, but can he take down frontrunner David Harbour (‘Stranger Things’)?

HBO has confirmed to Gold Derby that last year’s Best Drama Actor nominee Anthony Hopkins (“Westworld”) will be back on the Emmy ballot this year … but with a twist. Because of his reduced screen time in Season 2, Hopkins now contends in Best Drama Supporting Actor, the same category that his costars Jeffrey Wright and Ed Harris recently vacated to try their luck up in lead. Will this esteemed Oscar winner run off with his third career Emmy Award after prevailing for the telefilms “The Lindbergh Kidnapping Case” (1976) and “The Bunker” (1981)? If so, he’ll have to take down Gold Derby’s predicted frontrunner, David Harbour (“Stranger Things”).

This Bunker Offers No Shelter from the Demons of War: First Poster

Tagline: "No Escape." Bunker is a film from director Javier Soto ("The Strain"). Set in World War I, this film is also being produced by Fortress Features. In the film, British and American forces are forced deep, below ground with a German prisoner. In the gloom, the soldiers realize that there is another, supernatural presence with them. The script has been developed by writers: Natalie Hanson and Michael Huntsman. Casting is still underway. And, the film's first poster is available here. Currently, Bunker is at the Cannes Film Festival. Blue Fox Entertainment is the sales agent and they will be showcasing the concept to worldwide buyers.

Return of the Full Motion Video Game

  • Variety
Return of the Full Motion Video Game
When you think of the full motion video game genre, there are some immediately negative associations which spring to mind. This includes questionable acting, terrible green screen environments, and less than stellar picture quality.

But over the last few years, we have seen a renewed effort to reclaim the genre and act on its full potential, with titles like “Her Story,” “The Bunker,” and “The Late Shift” giving players a higher quality of interactive experience and further blurring the lines between filmmaking and game development.

To understand the future of the genre, however, you first have to look into its past. “Night Trap,” which was recently re-released onto modern consoles, is arguably the most popular game from the first wave of Fmv titles and was created mainly as a proof of concept for new technology. It was the brainchild of Rob Fulop, Tom Zito, and Digital Pictures and was originally

‘Late Shift’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

  • Nerdly
Wales Interactive have continued their explorations into the Fmv genre with this, their newest title and whilst these games will always have their detractors due to the level of interaction / game length, it’s difficult to find fault with Late Shift as it’s such a stylish, well-acted and directed crime thriller that holds up well to repeated plays.

The game starts off with the main character, Matt a university student who moonlights as a security guard in an underground private car park talking about the importance of even seemingly minor decisions in life. The high production values are instantly clear to see with swooping aerial shots of London at night and expensive vehicles galore, there’s not an Austin Montego in sight.

What starts as a typical sleepy late shift for Matt quickly morphs into him being dragged into a heist against his will, leaving the rest of his

‘The Bunker’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

  • Nerdly
After spotting Jeff Minter in Port Talbot last week, I’ve thinking about the Welsh video game industry as I can’t recall the last time that I played a game set in Wales or made by a Welsh Developer, so it was quite coincidental that this week I was sent The Bunker to review, a game made by a company based in Bridgend called Wales Interactive. It was also a nice surprise to find out it’s a Fmv (Full-Motion Video) game – a genre that’s quite difficult to get right – and while there are some pitfalls that come with the territory, The Bunker is a well-made and enjoyable narrative-driven tale definitely closer to the 7th Guests and Phantasmagorias of the genre than Tender Loving Care.

The Bunker tells the story of a man called John who has spent his entire life in the titular bunker following an undisclosed catastrophe above ground.

Anthony Hopkins: The Hollywood Flashback Interview

Sir Anthony Hopkins.

When I was asked by Venice Magazine to interview Anthony Hopkins in September of 2002, then-as-now he was regarded as perhaps the greatest living actor in the English-speaking world. That said, I wasn't sure what, or whom, to expect. Hopkins was known for having a somewhat mercurial personality, as well as not being a man to suffer fools gladly. Fortunately, I found him to be a very friendly, open and erudite gent with a remarkably diffuse and quite brilliant mind. Below, when Hopkins starts talking about his experience on Richard Attenborough's film Magic, notice how the conversation shifts suddenly to the Bee Gees, John Travolta and Saturday Night Fever, then effortlessly back to the topic at hand. This was my impression of Anthony Hopkins throughout our talk: insatiably curious about everything, even his memories, and able to mentally multi-task with an ease that was quite breathtaking.
