Best new films and TV to watch on Netflix this week: Hard Eight, Kung Fu Panda, and more

It's Friday, which for many exhausted people will mean an evening in front of the box watching Netflix. It can be hard to keep up with the comings and goings on the world's favourite streaming service, so each week we're going to be highlighting the best of the latest film and TV releases.

Road Not Taken and 5 other beautifully mysterious puzzle games

This week sees the launch of Road Not Taken onto the App Store, a simple puzzle game that's simultaneously full of beauty and mystery. Perhaps surprisingly, such a combination of elements isn't wholly unique on Apple's dazzlingly well-stocked App Store. There's a good bunch of iOS games out there that manage to tickle your brain, bathe your eyes, and tempt your curiosity all at once. Here are six of them, starting with the Spry Fox's new entrant itself. Road Not Taken Spry Fox has already made a name for itself in the puzzle game department with the innovative Triple Town, but Road Not Taken is another kettle of fish entirely. It might look like another clever grid-based block-shifter,…

Stranger Things: 7 films that inspired the Netflix hit

Netflix has yet another hit on its hands with the eight-part sci-fi series Stranger Things. One of the big elements that has viewers of a certain age and disposition nodding approvingly is the host of '70s and '80s movie references The Duffer Brothers have managed to cram in. If you've binge-watched your way through Stranger Things and fancy going back to the source, you can rent or buy these classic '80s films from iTunes, or many of the usual digital media store suspects. For those who never saw these films but loved Stranger Things, you're in for a curiously familiar treat. Before we begin, we should list a SPOILER ALERT here if you haven't finished (or started) Stranger Things, as we'…

6 films that share the Bourne identity

With Jason Bourne hitting cinemas and iTunes pushing The Complete Bourne 4 Movie Collection (snappy title), perhaps now would be a good time to reflect on the huge influence The Bourne Identity and its sequels have had on the action genre. From brutally unflinching hand-to-hand combat to a naturalistic shooting style in muted European settings, and right down to conspiracy-laden themes that reflect the political concerns of the time, traces of the Bourne series can be seen in most modern action films. Here are six films that have quite clearly been influenced by Matt Damon's iconic amnesiac assassin. Casino Royale Image: United Artists Corporation Daniel Craig's first stint as 007 was…

6 Nintendo properties that would benefit from the Pokemon GO treatment

6 Nintendo properties that would benefit from the Pokemon GO treatment

Pokemon GO is big. Really big. You know what happens when games get big, don't you? The companies involved (and everyone else for that matter) try to repeat the formula. In the wake of Pokemon GO, it seems obvious that AR gaming is going to be a big thing for the foreseeable future. If Nintendo's looking for another hit IP to apply Niantic's AR formula to (and we know it's getting into mobile gaming), we can think of some great candidates. And yes, we know that Pokemon GO isn't actually a Nintendo effort as such. But it did kind of come about through an idea by late Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata, and the Kyoto company also holds a major stake in The Pokemon Company. What, you think it's a coin…

Finished with Pokemon GO? Here are 5 more top AR games

We doubt you are done with Pokemon GO just yet, but with reports of the first gamer to 'catch 'em all' filtering through, you might be before too long. The good news for those bitten by the Pokemon bug (there are multiple types, you know) is that there are a whole bunch of traditional Pokemon games to get your teeth into, such as Pokemon X and Y on the Nintendo 3DS. But what about if it was the whole mobile augmented reality (AR) edge that you loved about Pokemon GO? We have just the AR game alternatives for you. Ingress Let's start with the biggest and most obvious next step for Pokemon GO fans: Ingress. It was built by the team behind Pokemon GO, Niantic. Indeed, while Pokemon GO mig…

Forget Batman v Superman - here are 7 superhero movies that deserve to be rediscovered

With Batman v Superman recently made available to buy on iTunes and other digital stores, we thought now would be a good time to look at a few oft-forgotten superhero films you can generally buy or rent for much cheaper. These ones don't suck, either. Head off on a tour of the usual digital movie sites this week and you'll doubtless get the hard sell on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The film's release at retail has been nicely timed to coincide with Comic-Con, and the first trailers for follow-up films Justice League and Wonder Woman. Of course, as high-profile as Batman v Superman is, most sources will agree that it simply isn't very good. If you want to see a genuinely decent super…
