Just to Say…

2000px-Gay_flag.svgWell done America, you’ve finally allowed gay marriage in all 50 States. Give yourself a pat on the back, but remember ther’s always more work to be done and, looking at America at the moment, some of it needs to be done sharpish. Celebrate today, but remember there’s still so much work to do tomorrow. Also, just a quick message to Northern Ireland: please pass same-sex marriage. It’s not hard, or controversial, it’s a matter of equality, so please do the right thing.

Oh and, err, reviews… I knew there was something I’d forgotten. They’ll be coming soon… hopefully.

Mad Max: Fury Road – Utter Carnage

MMFR_BUS_SHELTER_DUO_INTLSomewhat surprisingly, I’m not that much of an action film aficionado. I mean, I have seen a fair few but I’m not a die-hard about the subject (pardon the pun). So when Mad Max: Fury Road came out, I just thought that it was another summer blockbuster attempt. An admittedly cool looking one, but I had no inclination that this was part of a franchise, let alone a genre-defining one at that. Hell, South Park parodied it in Proper Condom Use!

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.
