Guardians of the Galaxy - awesome character moments, loose plot, a whole lot of fun

When the first Guardians of the Galaxy trailer came out, I watched it on a loop. It had jokes, fun characters, and intensely visual action – all set to cool 80s music. To say that it exceeded my expectations would be an understatement – I had never read a…

I recently re-read Dune, and am now making my way through the sequels, and all throughout I’m picturing how great it would be on television. I can’t help but think of similarities to Game of Thrones, of course, having just finished season 4 – but also how…

My first article in a long time! I realise it's really late, but I've been thinking about Aronofsky's Noah...

I get it. Noah wasn’t your cup of tea. I didn’t intend to like either, I went purely out of curiosity for what Aronofsky could have possibly wanted with so ludicrous a picture. Surely, it wasn’t mere folly? No. No! Look, I insist. The man actually knows…

We discuss the new Batsuit design for what we now know is called Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice; season finales for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Arrow and upcoming tv shows; and review Amazing Spider-Man 2, on which we end up agreeing more than I expect
