Movies don’t get much bigger than The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. The second installment in Peter Jackson’s new Tolkien trilogy is a worthy companion to his epic Lord of the Rings adaptation, and gives us our first glimpse of the mighty dragon. Anchorman Ron Burgundy is without doubt Will Ferrell’s most popular creation, so his return this month in the aptly titled Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is a very big deal. And also out this month is American Hustle, a star-studded seventies scam saga from director David O. Russell.

Shortly after the release of Skyrim, our games editor – thoroughly addicted to the game - remembers thinking to himself, “Imagine the trouble I’d be in if these Elder Scrolls titles had multiplayer”. Guess what... all social plans are destined to be cancelled and it’s time to go into hibernation once again when The Elder Scrolls Online arrives this month on PC. Sports fans should check out our feature on 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil, and the locally developed Don Bradman Cricket 14 will also be on the shelves at JB, giving gamers the chance to relive those glorious months over the summer.

In the music section this month we touch base with a really diverse bunch of musicians from around the globe – from EMA’s futurist cyber pop with an eye on the world around us, to new and homegrown efforts from Dan Sultan and Teeth and Tongue. We also speak to Kaiser Chiefs about their new album Education, Education, Education and War. Then there’s Steel Panther, this month’s cover stars, who openly lampoon– and also celebrate, describe and live – the excesses of the rock star life. You have been warned!

Having been a fan of Peter Jackson since his Bad Taste/Feebles/Braindead days, I loved what he did with The Lord of the Rings. But somehow, I just couldn’t get excited about his return to Middle-earth after the first installment of The Hobbit trilogy, An Unexpected Journey. And I did watch it a couple of times to see if it was just me or the movie – and it was the movie. Reluctantly, I was... [read more »]
