About that time I got Spider-Man to sign a bag of Uncle Ben’s rice…

Andrew Garfield The Amazing Spider-Man Premiere Uncle Ben's Rice

It was six years ago. The day before ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ premiere in London, which me and my best friend were due to attend. We were sat sinking in a few beers in central London, when I suddenly piped up with: “how funny would it be if I gave Andrew Garfield a bag of Uncle Ben’s to sign?” Maybe it was the beer talking. Maybe it was the lack of sleep I was experiencing due to the relentless pursuit of a studying for a degree. Wherever the idea came from, it was a stroke […]

Why Matt Smith is my favourite Doctor

Matt Smith 11th Doctor favourite best doctor 11 TARDIS season 5 matt smith appreciation 11

All good things must come to an end, I guess. In a show like ‘Doctor Who’ the cast, tone, actors and settings change at the drop of a hat, trawling through different show-runners and lead actors like there’s no tomorrow. It’s unique in this way – no other show does anything like it, but sometimes I can’t help but get a little nostalgic for times long since passed. As I’m watching season 12 of ‘Doctor Who’ unfold currently, I can’t help but miss some of the old faces that once graced our screens. And, for […]

Books that would make *amazing* video games

books that should be video games video games based on books ps4 controller books fantasy book geek blog geeky blogger uk blog books video games 2020

Ah, books and gaming – my two passions in life. Why hasn’t anyone thought of bringing the two together more often? I guess that turning the fantastical ideas trapped within the confines of the written word into a physical, interactive experience is no easy feat. Words into artwork. Dialogue into acted, actual lines. Imagination-based lore into a realm you can explore… It’s a hard line to walk, where many have tried and failed. But the successes are great. ‘The Witcher’ series, for example – going from book to game to TV show, a viral phenomenon […]

‘The Rise of Skywaker’ is full of flaws – but I don’t give a damn

There we have it! After nine core films, two spin-offs and over forty years in the making, ‘Star Wars’, as we know it, has come to an end. The internet as a whole has been widely divisive on this new trilogy, and not without merit. The trio – even including ‘The Force Awakens’ has been littered with issues, ranging from pacing to plot. But, honestly? I don’t give a damn.   ***There’s gonna be some big ol’ spoilers ahead for ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ – so if you haven’t seen it yet, look away now*** […]

‘Frozen 2’ is a glorious, magical adventure (Movie Review)

frozen 2 movie review elsa girlfriend anna frozen 2 spoilers frozen 2 elsa died dead dies frozen 2 thoughts movie

Going into ‘Frozen 2’, I was a little skeptical. The original was decent (‘Tangled’ was better, fight me), and the characters of the first were truly magical. Obviously after its crazy success Disney were going to make a sequel. But was it going to be another heartless cash grab? *There’s going to be massive ‘Frozen 2’ spoilers ahead, so if you haven’t seen the movie yet – what are you doing?! Go to the cinema, watch the flick, and come back right here*   In short, the movie isn’t a cash grab. Not at all. […]
