  • Revisiting Game of Thrones Season 7 Part 2

    Spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 7 incoming. The seventh season marks the beginning of the end of Game of Thrones. After years of set up and development, the payoffs finally start coming as allies are formed, enemies gained and ‘the Great War’ begins. But was it satisfying? Does...
  • Revisiting Game of Thrones Season 7 Part 1

    Spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 7 incoming. We’re only a month away from the final six episodes of Game of Thrones. That’s a statement that gets me very excited and yet also remarkably sad. It’s all coming to an end but, before it does, I’ve been revisiting the...
  • Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

    Following on from my earlier article, The Dark Side of Alchemy, I’m now in a position to share some thoughts on Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood as a whole. I wrote the earlier article after I had finished “Part 1” which is the first 13 episodes; this time I’m writing having...
  • Why Pierce Brosnan Should Return as James Bond for One More Film

    I desperately want to see an old James Bond. Not Roger Moore in A View to a Kill or Sean Connery in Never Say Never Again, where they ignored the fact that these men were far too old for what the film required of them, but rather a Bond...
  • SSSS.GRIDMAN

    This December, Star Wars: Episode 9 looks to be the last Star Wars film released for the next couple of years as the space action moves to television with the release of The Mandalorian on Disney’s upcoming streaming service Disney+. Little but a cast list is known about the...
  • Goblin Slayer

    The trouble with goblins is, nobody takes them seriously. They’re just goblins after all; little more than an irritation. How many games have you played, or stories have you read/watched, where goblins are a monster enemy? 10, 20, 100? What proportion of those treated them as anything more difficult...
  • My Hopes For The Next James Bond Film

    It’s crazy to think that when the 25th James Bond film premieres early next year, it’ll have been almost 5 years since the previous entry Spectre hit cinemas. That’s a year longer than the break between Die Another Day and the modern reboot Casino Royale. Looking back, it’s hard...
  • Connecting with Bumblebee

    The Transformers cinematic franchise is a funny old beast. Seeing the first one, directed by Michael Bay, all those years ago was truly breathtaking. He made these giant transforming robots, not only look good but look like they belonged in the real world. It’s an amazing feat of CGI...
