So Post Wonder Woman and armed with a one month free subscription to a fancy movie subscription I picked something really amazing this week. The next couple of weeks I should get some really good stuff hopefully so cross your fingers!!!
So it happened for the first time I managed to go to the cinema and see a women directed movie on the big screen and not just on the big screen but as the top billed one of the year. Honestly it was the best thing ever taking my mu to go see it and I strongly reccomend you all go.
So guys you think I was gonna resist the fifth movie in the franchise of my youth. nah, wasn't gonna happen! So me and my family hauled out a few weeks back to a pretty packed cinema for an adventure of the high seas. So onwards for the review
Hey guys I have been meaning to do more this week but in the light of everythings that happened I found there was just so much to say and not enough words. But finally I am actually writing again and I thought I would write all about Vampires for World Dracula Day. In a week that already contained World Goth Day somehow tacking World Dracula Day is even better is it not! Magic timing as usual! So I thought I would pick my five favorite vampires in film to celebrate this auspicious occassion!
Blizzard entertainment's game Overwatch is one years old this week. They released a fantastic video celebrating it and honestly when I finally have the cash I will stop watching people play it online (at my house not whenever i get to get to friends which is how i have played before) and play it for myself. However if you are like me and gameless you can still have all sorts of fun with Overwatch courtesy of their comics. These are available free on their website and are damn awesome today I thought I'd talk about my favourite of them all.
So in my general tradition of strange and unusual foods. The lovely folks at Seamore sent me some Seaweed pasta. This is a sponsored post, whilst these products where sent to me for free it does not in any way influence my opinion. For a better look at my policies please click here.
So if you lived under a rock and din't know it was Free Comic Book Day today!! So sometimes I don't get to go but I was super lucky today and had a really damn awesome time. So I went tonne that isn' technically my local anymore but is my FCBD hot spot every damn time!!
With a premiere date for Deadpool 2 out and the fact that my newest comic order has arrived I thought this should be the time to talk Cable. Which is very useful because I have Cable and the New Mutants True believers to talk about him with!
So guys you may remember last year I went to Sundance London and saw the amazing Author: The JT Leroy story (read my post here) Well this year the whole circus is coming back to Picture House Central for another year and I so psyched. So here are my top 5 picks from an amazing program!!
Disney movies and Disney nostalgia has an incredible ability to put a great big smile on your face, warm your heart and make you swoon like Elizabeth Swann in the first PoTC movie. It's so expected at this point that honestly people get the warm fuzzies just from seeing the castle logo. So in their wake of remaking every damn property they have with actually a pretty good hit rate Disney remade the gorgeous Beauty and The Beast with Emma Watson and I went to see it. Here is what I thought
So firstly I'm finally getting back into comics blogging guys! I stopped for a long time but now I'm back and what forced me out of the woodwork you may ask? Well Image Comics is now officially 25 years old and on my monthly comic ordering spree I added the 25p special issue of Outcast to my basket for obvious reasons! Now technically February was their 25h Birthday but I'm running late because I only got it a few weeks back so this is a bit belated
I got sent a big parcel from the lovely folks down at LackaFoods/ UFit filled with a few products for me to try. This is a sponsored post and whilst these products were given to me for free it does not in any way influence my opinion. For more information on my policies click here.
So with that out of the way read on for thoughts and opinions.
So a while back I got given some Brownies and they got all beat up and I wasn't really in the mood to eat them and neither were my family. But I didn't want to put them to waste so I poked the internet for ideas. This is what I came up with. As this is my first recipe of the year I hope you all enjoy it as I'm not sure I'll continue with them.
So Morphin' Time is in the air as Saban is about to release their new Power Rangers movie which is a rehash of the original Mighty Morphin' Team. It doesn't look too bad and I will probably see it because the baby brother wants to see it. But I think ultimately the best thing to come out of this new Power Rangers mania is that Twitch is streaming every episode!
So its no big secret that Tom Hardy is fantastic right. But imagine Tom Hardy as a scuzzy possibly magic dude in Regency England going round attacking people, being vaguely piratical and wearing a cool hat. Yep Taboo had all these things and will continue to have them because they announced this week it's coming back for a second season!!!
So this week we are going back in time to over a hundred years ago to one of the first female comedy directors. The reason for this one is a bit of a surprise so get excited for something coming v. soon.
Oh man have I been waiting to talk about this one!! For starters it seems vaguely important to note that films that change the superhero genre keep getting put in early year slots. I'm wondering if this is because studios don't want to completely bank on them as there big summer one but think they can pull in relatively well in the less cluttered feb half term slot. I mean last year it was Fox's Deadpool messing with everyone and this year DC has finally crawled out of its misery machine and had a bit of fun with Lego Batman.
So this week is the first foreign language film of this years challenge. I was trying to keep toLGBT movies this month but the best laid plans and all that. This one I saw on Film 4 and decided to watch because it seemed intriguing as I'd never seen a film from Brazil before. So this film is...
Firstly this is my first full movie review of the year so I hope you are all excited! Anyway lets get on with it. If The Visit signalled M.Night Shymalan's return, Split shows he has stuck the landing.
So me and my mum were walking about in the supermarket when we found this tube of apparently readymade croissant dough. It looked sufficiently weird and was on a really good deal so we picked it up! So if you like weird foodstuffs and don't mind that this is just me being odd click under the cut to see if it works or not!
So this week was the start of LGBT History Month over in England so I thought I'd kick off with an LGBT movie because why not. An aside finding lgbt movies on netflix uk is kinda annoying. It take skill, dedication and access to google to check if its actually one. But anyway I cut through all the crap and finally found one that was 1. directed by a woman and 2. looked decent. I get points for that right because damn did it take skills. Anyway without further a do heres what I picked.
With all the stuff thats happened this week and the women's marches I felt this weeks film should be a biopic of historical women and which better ones than the three sisters from yorkshire that made literary magic and their forgotten brother. This weeks film is...
So last week was the finale and possible last ever episode of Sherlock and it was as brilliant as we'd expect. So I've teamed up with Joey from Let's Start with this One to go through our faviorite moments her post is linked in the bottom of this post.
Obviously a big Ol’ Spoiler
warning at the beginning of this!!
