Avengers: Endgame Review Avengers: Endgame Review

Okay, so this is going to be a tough film to talk about. How do you talk about a film without spoiling anything when pretty much the only things not worth spoiling were in the trailers anyway.

How to Train Your Dragon 3 - Review How to Train Your Dragon 3 - Review

Because I’m not typing the full title. Sue me.

Towel Day. Or: How to Title a Piece About The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Without Saying "Don't Panic!" Towel Day. Or: How to Title a Piece About The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Without Saying "Don't Panic!"

May 25th is Towel Day, the day fans celebrate the life and works of Douglas Adams; notably The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (May 25th is also the day Star Wars came out, a year before the Radio series first broadcast).

Deadpool 2 Review & Discussion Deadpool 2 Review & Discussion

The first Deadpool film felt like a breath of fresh air, it’s R rating and surface disregard for the conventions of modern superhero movie narratives made it a cultural touchstone, a film you just had to see because it wasn’t like anything you’d ever seen before.

Avengers: Infinity War Discussion Avengers: Infinity War Discussion

There is a saying; either do something original and make it rough or do something ordinary and make it perfect.

Honouring the Past whilst Looking to the Future - A Sonic Mania review. Honouring the Past whilst Looking to the Future - A Sonic Mania review.

There’s a saying in the Sonic fan community; no matter how bad the game is, the soundtrack will always be good.

Baby Driver Review and Discussion thread Baby Driver Review and Discussion thread

It’s a testament to just how much the work of Edgar Wright has had an impression on me that I’ll go see his films pretty much based on the knowledge that he made it. Put simply, there’s nobody out there that works like him so no matter what he tackles in his career, it’ll at the very least be interesting.

Nobody steals the show like Gaston! Nobody steals the show like Gaston!

It’s kinda funny that a film that features the line “never go back to your childhood” is a remake of a classic Disney animated film. It’s a cynical marketing ploy to remake a film that sticks so close to it’s source material, but when the source material is this good, it’s hard to find anything worth changing, and…

"You lied to me, Rope!" A Lego Batman Movie Review "You lied to me, Rope!" A Lego Batman Movie Review

I honestly think that The Lego Batman Movie might just be the best Batman movie ever made and features quite possibly one of the best Batmans ever (at least top 5 for movies).

My Dream Movies - The Mask My Dream Movies - The Mask

I was chatting to my some co-workers today and the topic of movies and movie remakes came up. After the point was raised that I really want the Fast and Furious movie franchise to be a long-winded prequel to either Transformers or MASK, I was told that The Mask should never be remade and I immediately disagreed, The…

Cards Against Humanity - Review and Retrospective Cards Against Humanity - Review and Retrospective

Today, I recieved the latest update for one of my favourite party games, Cards Against Humanity, and it’s the biggest update in the game’s history and I figured it was time to not only review this bigger than big (and indeed, blacker than black) upgrade, but to look back and see just how far this game has come.

Too Many Sorcerers - A Doctor Strange Review. Too Many Sorcerers - A Doctor Strange Review.

Just watched Marvel’s latest entry into their Cinematic Universe and felt like posting a review.

Don't Feed the Plants Today. Don't Feed the Plants Today.

On the twenty-third day of the month of September in an early year of a decade not too long before our own, the human race suddenly encountered a deadly threat to its very existence. And this terrifying enemy surfaced, as such enemies often do, in the seemingly most innocent and unlikely of places...

Megamind Review - buried by Minions Megamind Review - buried by Minions

It’s no secret that there’s such a thing as Duelling Movies, and it’s always been a fascinating concept to me, that two different creative teams can create two different stories based around pretty much the same premise and get totally different results. It’s possibly the closest we’ll get to treating movie making as…

So this is apparently a thing...

HarmonQuest HarmonQuest

Just finished watching the first series (10 episodes) of Dan Harmon’s other animated show, HarmonQuest and it’s a basically the D&D segment from his HarmonTown podcast, but with special guest stars and animated segments where appropriate. It’s available behind a subscription to SeeSo (or elsewhere, *wink wink, nudge…

Hardcore Henry - Way Late Review Hardcore Henry - Way Late Review

I’ve been meaning to watch this film for a long time but it had such a limited release I never got the chance to see it in the cinema, so when I saw it was out on DVD, I had to buy it and goddamn, I love it.

Ghostbusters review/reaction thread.

I just back from seeing the film and whilst it was clearly never going to be better than the original, it’s a decent, entertaining update that just about walks the line between being too referential to the original and carving it’s own path (with the exception of the third act).

Independence Day: Resurgence review/thoughts Independence Day: Resurgence review/thoughts

Just back from watching the sequel to Independence Day and whilst it’s - unsurprisingly - nowhere near as good as it’s predecessor, it’s a better sequel than I was expecting with some great moments but there’s a lot of stupid stuff that drags it down.
