  • 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...

  • Sneak Peek At The ‘Justice League Dark’ Movie

    We have wanted to see Justice League Dark on the big screen for a long time. It almost happened too, with none other than Guillermo del Toro as the director, which would have been incredible… probably. However, our dreams have been dashed as it looks like the project is...
