Contains Spoilers for Blade Runner 2049 Set 30 years after the original Ridley Scott cult classic, Blade Runner 2049 picks up the action in LA with Detective K (Ryan Gosling), a Nexus 9 tasked with retiring older models who have run from their duties. Much a mirror image of the original, Detective K is a good substitute for Rick Deckard … Read More

We Think We Like Star Trek Discovery

Warning – Contains Spoilers for Stark Trek Discovery Episodes 1-3 I’ll always have a soft spot for Science Fiction no matter what form it takes. Star Trek has always been an intellectual pursuit, more so than say Star Wars (don’t get me wrong, I enjoy them both). It’s ability to have engaging social commentary is a hallmark of the franchise. My … Read More

The Pacing of GOT S7

I LOVE Game of Thrones, it’s one of my all time favourite things. So much so I’ve read all the books (the ones that are out so far), even the semi-illustrated prequel with Dunk. It’s a beautifully crafted and in-depth world and even though the onscreen representation has deviated here and there from the source material (I’m generally a stickler for … Read More

Suicide Squad Review

*Will most definitely spoil points of the film* I will start by admitting I am a Marvel man. Always have been and always will be. This isn’t just where the films are concerned, I’m an avid collector of comic books too. Sure I take a sprinkle of what  DC has to offer, in the form of Jason Todd’s Red Hood and Nightwing … Read More

Stranger Things Review

*This article contains spoilers for Season 1 of Stranger Things, available on Netflix* I’ll come out and admit it straight away. I’m not a kid of the 1980s. I wasn’t actually born until the year Jurassic Park hit theatre screens around the world. Yes, the first one (please don’t stop reading). I have however consumed a fair amount of filmography … Read More

Game of Thrones SE06EP10 Winds of Winter (Retrospective)

*WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR EPISODE AND SEASON* Well. That was a pretty explosive ending to a pretty explosive season. The wage bill for Season 7 is going to be way lighter so expect a lot more of Ghost now they’ve freed the budget up for him. In a display of rumours and fan theories coming to fruition and Cersei showing how … Read More

Game of Thrones SE6EP9 Battle of the Bastards (Retrospective)

*Will spoil Season 6 Episode 9* Oh Game of Thrones. Once more you have us baying for blood and once more you did not in the least bit disappoint. Not only was Episode 9 one of the best episodes from this season, it was one of the best episodes of all time, due in no small part to the payoffs within … Read More

Game of Thrones SE06EP07 The Broken Man (Retrospective)

In an episode that didn’t see much action but plenty of set-up, Episode 7 has certainly made me pumped for the next instalment as it looks to be all out war once again both at Winterfell and at Riverrun. If I were the commonfolk, I’d give both a widebirth. That’s what 6 seasons of conflict have taught me about these … Read More

Game of Thrones SE06EP05 Blood of My Blood (Retrospective)

This episode felt like an apology for the big shock of last week. Not only did two primary characters realise how bad ass they are, but we also had a HUGE question answered both from the books and the TV show. So was it good? You bet your prized dragon egg it was! I want to get it out of … Read More

Game of Thrones SE06EP5 ‘The Door’ Retrospective

*contains spoilers for this episode* “No one has died yet,” I announce out loud to my wife as the realisation comes that in just ten minutes this episode is due to come to an end. It’s unsettling that Game of Thrones has conditioned us to expect death on a grand scale but that’s a story for my therapist. My outburst … Read More

X-Men Apocalypse Review

*Will contain spoilers for the film* As X-Men films go, they range from pretty cheesy to pretty good with no real inbetween. They are a little guilty pleasure of mine to be honest. Sure for the most part they aren’t as well done, in my opinion, as some of the Marvel films but they often give it a good go … Read More

Captain America Civil War Review

A Marvel film set in the already well established Marvel Universe is always going to be one that draws people to the box office and makes a lot of money. We have all come to accept that. Some scoffed when Guardians of the Galaxy (a lesser known Marvel property at the time) was announced and yet it proved an amazing hit. … Read More

Game of Thrones Season 6: The Red Woman Review

*Does contain epic plot spoilers* After a wait that seemed to last as long as a Westeros winter, we finally got to see Episode 1 of Season 6 last night in the UK after the American Sunday premiere. Although it answered some questions that had been festering in the snow since last year, in typical Game of Thrones fashion the … Read More

Daredevil Season 2 Review

*possible plot and casting spoilers ahead Daredevil was an instant hit on Netflix. The casting and script was spectacular and so too the cinematography. Season 2 had a lot to live up to but with the inclusion of Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead) as the Punisher and Elodie Yung (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) as Elektra, the on screen … Read More
