Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince - The Ultimate REVIEW


Mathew Owen and myself review the ever-loving shit out of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Snape reveals more of his character in the twisted plot of who's working for who? There's a huge moment at the end - probably the biggest in the series - so be warned as we talk about everything.

Wonder Woman Review


Hey all, this will be a quick solo review from myself. We could do a whole spoiler discussion with Matthew Owen if you wanted. Tweet me @gamethinktalk to request a big fat spolier discusssion, or DM if you don't want anyone to know what you're listening to in those secret earbuds

Guardians of the Galaxy - Movie Review


First half spoiler-free, then a deep dive

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - Movie Review


Finally a truly great script. Where Goblet of Fire was spread far too thin, Order of the Phoenix has laser sharp focus and it pays off bigtime. 


If you've been following the podcast and are thinking "what's with these movie reviews? I subscribed to 'game' think talk, not movie chit chat!"

I'll be adding a few more gaming focused episodes beyond the weekly podcast. These will cover games I'm playing that don't fit into the normal show. Like GTA IV and V for example. I have a lot of thoughts about them but haven't felt the right time to bring them up in the big show. 

As always, you can email me at with suggestions, questions, and comments that can be read on the show if you wish. 


Bye for now.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire - Movie Review


Goblet was much bigger than the previous three and the film struggled mightily to find focus. This is a great example of what movies can't do that books can. Including a wide breadth of elements from the book in a shallow way makes for a frustrating watching experience.

However, there were some great elements including a killer ending and of the best villain reveals I've seen in a long time.

Enjoy the dicussion as we break it down, give it a star rating and rank it among the first four entries in the franchise.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - Movie Review


Mat and Matthew O continue their journey to review every Potter film in 2017. Chamber of Secrets gets darker and plants the seeds for many of the movies to come. It's also the longest film in the franchise. Does that mean best? Probably not.
