Has the Golden Age of the Superhero Flick Gone?

By |2018-11-12T12:37:43+00:00November 12th, 2018|Movies/TV|

I remember when I first saw the metal band Motley Crue. Their music, image, attitude, was a breath of fresh air to me. A combination of edginess, raw power, and glam. Then along came W.A.S.P. and my world opened even more. I opened my arms to Poison, Ratt, Warrant, Dokken, all great bands full of a lust for life and the promise of a party and a good time. But [...]

RiffTrax Live Is Coming To London!

By |2018-01-09T17:22:30+00:00January 9th, 2018|Movies/TV|

There isn’t much that can make a Nerdic Viking drop a nearly-full flagon of mead, but this morning my mead ended up all over the floor and the goats got the shock of their lives as I whooped and hollered in response to the most exciting tweet I have ever seen: If I’m honest, I’m still waiting for my adrenaline levels to return to normal, but let me try to [...]

Another Remake! I don’t believe it!

By |2017-12-15T11:03:00+00:00December 15th, 2017|Movies/TV|

I just read that the film 48 Hours is getting a remake. Looking along reams of articles and announcements from film and TV studios there they are again, another remake, and a reboot of another popular film from not that long ago. How would it be if bands from the 80s that are still around, say, U2 decided that, instead of writing new songs, they would start to re-record their [...]

Rise Of The Wygons

By |2017-06-10T22:09:32+00:00June 9th, 2017|Movies/TV|

Dragons have always been one of the most popular mythical creatures to stick in your new movie or game, and for good reason – they’re majestic, intelligent and deadly, and let’s face it, they look frickin’ awesome. But in the past few years a trend has developed in the entertainment industry for replacing dragons with wyverns and hoping nobody would notice. The dragons in the TV series ‘Game of Thrones’? [...]

Physician, Heal Thyself: All Change For Doctor Who

By |2017-01-31T23:16:39+00:00January 31st, 2017|Movies/TV|

Yesterday, in an unexpected announcement, Peter Capaldi revealed that he was to step down from Doctor Who at the end of the year.  Although surprising, I kind of saw it coming.  Stephen Moffat, lead writer for the show for the past few years is leaving too and as it was with Russell T Davies, the star of the show is going too, leaving a clean slate for the new lead [...]

Why Luke Skywalker Is Not Rey’s Father, By A Logical Novice

By |2017-01-16T16:17:13+00:00January 16th, 2017|Movies/TV|

We’ve all seen the heaps of speculation over the past year about Rey from ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ and who her mysterious parents might be, and most of them point the light sabre squarely at Luke Skywalker. Now I may not be a hard-core fan who knows everything there is to know about Star Wars, but I did watch all seven movies and the quite insane ‘Star Wars Holiday [...]

Who is the greatest fictional villain?

By |2016-10-17T12:15:55+00:00October 17th, 2016|Movies/TV|

Well, I think I know, and maybe the featured pic might have given it away... First up, I'm a huge fan of horror, be that books, films, TV, whatever, but I have to say the recent avalanche of first person, cheap Blair Witch/ Paranormal Activity rip offs have long since left the building as far as I'm concerned. I love horror, but it has to mean something. It can't just [...]

I’ve Got The Power!

By |2016-10-10T08:02:24+00:00October 10th, 2016|Movies/TV|

A ten-hour flight is a great opportunity to watch movies, so I begrudgingly decided to see ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ so I could review it for you lovely people. I was looking forward to the first glimpse of Wonder Woman, at least. But, to be honest, the beginning of the movie was so disjointed and angry that I lost interest and fell asleep for most of it, so [...]

Suicide Squad – A Bit of a Rant

By |2016-10-14T09:55:11+00:00August 22nd, 2016|Movies/TV|

Before we go any further, there WILL be spoilers below – if you haven’t watched the movie yet and don’t want some twit ruining it for you, please come back after you’ve seen it. Okay? If you’re still here, let’s get started!   Now, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m a Marvel girl through and through, but from all the hype and the trailers for Suicide [...]

Review – Warcraft Movie

By |2016-10-14T09:55:13+00:00June 30th, 2016|Movies/TV|

I loved the Warcraft movie. I started playing WOW just before Wrath of the Lich King and have enjoyed most of the expansions ever since. I was drawn to the game by my two sons who were active players, and it was something we could do together. So I rolled my first character, a Tauren Druid, and started. I soon realised that my play style was more suited to ranged [...]
