Best Of British Biographies – Bill Nighy

Ah, Bill Nighy. I’ve used phrases like chameleonic before but Bill Nighy is not quite that sort of actor. That doesn’t mean he isn’t versatile though. He has played a wide range of characters: a formerly addicted pop star, the minister for magic, a Regency gent, the embodiment of the oceanic abyss, a Victorian detective, […]

Welcome to Middle Earth

The 22nd of September is known as Hobbit Day. Why? Because that is the shared birthday of the two best known hobbits…Bilbo and Frodo Baggins; lead characters in The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings respectively. If those names mean nothing to you then you may as well stop reading now!  Middle Earth is […]

Loki – (Season 2) What You Need To Know

Loki was among the new wave of MCU TV series. It came out after WandaVision, and The Falcon And The Winter Soldier. The main difference, to me, was that Loki took off in a totally different direction to the film outings.  WandaVision led on from the death of Vision at the hands of Thanos while […]

Blade – What You Need To Know

I remember the Wesley Snipes era Blade and quite enjoyed the trilogy. It ran from 1998 to 2004 and led to a spin-off TV series. Blade: The Series only ran for one season but that isn’t necessarily down to quality! It was being made by a fledgling network (Spike TV) and they couldn’t afford to […]

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania – What You Need To Know

  Hands up everyone who thought the MCU would have to start wrapping up after Avengers: Endgame.. Yes, me too. But it just goes to show that there is still plenty of mileage to be wrung out of all the original characters as well bringing out new ones! In fact, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania […]

Indiana Jones And The Dial Of Destiny – What You Need To Know

Indiana Jones returns for his fifth adventure…Indiana Jones and The Dial Of Destiny.  The fact that Harrison Ford is now eighty years old seems not to be much of a problem. Less of a problem than trying to introduce an Indiana Jones Jr. Jr. in the last film. Which was a mere fourteen years ago when […]

Good Omens Season 2 – What You Need To Know

Good Omens was based on the book of the same name. Well, it was based on the book called Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch. This was a collaboration between the two most imaginative and creative writers of modern times; Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. As a result the Good […]

Riddick 4: Furya – What You Need To Know

Pitch Black came out in 2000 and introduced us to the character Riddick played by Vin Diesel. It was a success and so there was the inevitable run of sequels; The Chronicles Of Riddick (2004), and Riddick (2013). The fourth Riddick outing was first announced in 2014 but everything seemed to go quiet for a […]

Rewatch Review – Toy Story

This is, ultimately, where it all began. Pixar’s first feature length computer animated film. I suppose a lot of people, nowadays, may wonder what all the fuss is about. Let’s be honest, as an animation, it was decades behind traditional techniques. I don’t want to make a big deal about it because Toy Story was […]

MCU Disney+ Review – What If…?

Believe it or believe it not, the stuff that gets written here does have the semblance of a plan about it. Despite being spread half way around the world and separated by several time zones we do take the opportunity to chat whenever we can. And we do manage to talk about things other than […]
