Avengers: Age of Ultron – Hype Without Substance?

Avengers_Age_Of_Ultron-poster1I know this film has been out for a short while now and the fact I’m reviewing now is more of a testament to by procrastination rather than anything else, but nevertheless I shall, finally, be reviewing the hype-tastic Avengers: Age of Ultron! But you guys know what’s coming first, although I don’t see why I’m even bothering since we’ve all seen the trailers and probably the film itself, but here’s the obligatory overview!

Begin Again – Sweet and Satisfying, if a Little Uneven

Begin_Again_film_poster_2014So… how are you all? It’s been a while hasn’t it? Sorry, I’m not so good at striking up a conversation with possibly many people that I have barely spoken/written to in months, but I’m going to have a bash at it, for my blog’s health as well as my own. Continue reading

Target Demographics Can Be Wrong

Chronic Chronicler:

As always this bog makes brilliant points and I couldn’t agree more with this one. Have a read and follow them if you haven’t already! Oh, and I will try to do some reviews at some point, in case you thought I had vanished into the ether.

There is so much great geek media out there to enjoy: movies, video games, television—the list goes on. It is my solemn belief that these are art forms, and deserve all the discussion we give them, from the critical (like representation) to the mundane (shipping). The range of topics shows how much these art forms resonate with audiences. But to more effectively have these discussions, I think it is important not to dismiss shows with a younger target demographic.

13486632Hello and welcome to the end of the road. Yes, I know that many of you will be in tears that this frankly fantastic book reviewing series is coming to an end. I know there are tears of joy but I’m just going to smooth over that fact. It’s kind of appropriate that the last novel I review be about a man in the twilight years of his life so here goes this last Febookuary obligatory overview! Continue reading

Febookuary – The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly – Naivety Turned Wise

17707648Hello there and welcome to yet another late review which I feel apologising for will seem disingenuous as it’s a habit I seem to be falling into with increasing regularity. Regardless, I’m glad this book got half-voted, half-chosen by me for a review because I’ve been desperate to sing its praises for ages. What, am I meant to be impartial as a critic? Well I’ll try mystery voice in my head but I doubt it’ll be a success. So come mystery voice that I may need to go to my psychiatrist about, let’s go to the wonderful gumdrop filled world of the obligatory overview! Continue reading

Febookuary – The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde – Both Pleasing and Vile

Jekyll_and_Hyde_TitleWell here we are: the final week of Febookuary and only three reviews to go. Damn the momentum has been hard to keep up, with last week being a great example. Hopefully we can all forget about that with this review of one of the most well-known horror characters in fiction, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. So quick, let us transform into that ghastly and repetitive of things, the obligatory overview! Continue reading
