My Top 10 Animated Disney Films – 2018

I’m sure there are many people who will raise their eyebrows substantially when reading this, but this is the list of my top 10 favourite animated Disney films, at least today anyway. I didn’t grow up with Disney so I have no childhood memories of watching Disney films, except Bambi, which I find as dull […]

My Top 10 TV Shows of All Time – 2018

A few decades ago I’d have included shows like The A-Team and The Dukes of Hazzard, but they haven’t aged so well, and so are better left as nostalgic memories. The order is also interchangeable really, though the top two have been steadfast in the one and two positions since I finished watching them. Yes, […]

Top 10 Films of 2017

Last year I only managed a Top 7, but in 2017 I’ve seen more new releases, either at the cinema or on DVD/Blu-ray. Unlike last year, however, I don’t have time to write about each choice, and as much as I always dissuade unsubstantiated lists, it’s all you are getting this year! So, on with […]

A Day at MCM Comic Con London and Why I Love It So Much

Pirates of the Caribbean or Star Tours t-shirt? Star Wars Rebel pilot backpack or classic Star Wars courier bag? Slip on Star Wars scene Vans or lace up Stormtrooper Vans? That last dilemma was easily solved as I couldn’t and still can’t locate that particular pair of Vans – just why do things go missing […]

Top 7 Films of 2016

So why a top 7 and not a top 10, or even a top 5? Simply because I’ve only seen 7 new films this past year that I’d consider good, or better in most cases, so I may as well include them all. 1. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story I’m sure this comes as […]

A Visit to Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter

I’m one of those Harry Potter fans who started with the films, and even though I’d seen people reading the books, especially on the train, I’d never felt compelled to read them myself. As someone who likes to read books before films generally, I felt I’d missed the boat on that one and the films […]

Star Wars Episode VIII is delayed until December 2017, and here’s why that’s a good thing

When it was announced that Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens was to be released in December of last year and not the traditional May, there was quite an uproar from fans, myself included. That’s okay though, because Episode 8 is coming out in May next year, and the traditional month for Star Wars […]

First official trailer for Suicide Squad, and it looks tremendous

Just one day after writing about the gorgeously styled Suicide Squad posters, the first official trailer is here, in all it’s Queen soundtracked glory. From the trailer it would seem that Will Smith’s Deadshot and Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn are the two main characters of the Squad, which is pretty much what it is in […]
