Review – Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

rogue-one-a-star-wars-story

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, directed by Gareth Edwards, offers one of the most different feeling Star Wars films to date. This is a film of tragedy, dire situations and the unbending want for revenge, and with such a darker tone comes people and places that are unique in their presentation (for a Star Wars film). However a film of this scale is of course not without its problems (some which are very noticeable). But then I did find so much to be interested by, and I also continue to adore the level of work and detail that is going into these new films… but… is what the film does, enough to make it worth existing? Did we need Rogue One? Let’s get the full review underway and answer not only those questions, but better explore all of the films elements. Read more

Review – Doctor Strange

doctor-strange

Doctor Strange, directed by Scott Derrickson, took its time to find its momentum, but once it did, it began to offer one of the most stimulating Marvel films in some time. Visuals that truly wow and worlds with infinite possibilities, takes the previously built out Marvel universe and turns it on its head. Now this isn’t a film that 100% knocked it out of the park – there are in fact quite a few glaring issues with the film – and so ‘Doctor Strange’ is a film that I’m interested and eager to breakdown. So let’s get on with it. Read more

The TV Shows That I Think Deserve Your Attention From 2015

2015 has delivered another great year of television. There have been shows that have hooked me from the beginning, shows that took their time to get going but as a whole were great and then there are the shows that returned for new seasons and ended up breaking me emotionally (for one reason or another). Despite some of the usual drivel that makes its way onto television, I have been as entrenched as ever with its offerings.

So the point of this piece is for me to share what I feel are some of the best TV shows of 2015. I want to share what makes these shows so special and why I love them so much and also I want to give you a little nugget of information on them thus hopefully meaning you’ll give them some time and support.

One of the last things I’ll say for diving into the list of shows is that while these are my favourite shows of 2015 I’m not saying that these are better than anything else out there. 1: it’s all subjective and 2: I couldn’t possibly be caught up on every show deemed to be the best, so please keep that in mind. Oh, I’ll also add that these are in no particular order as I won’t to mix them up and give every show their fair due. I should also add that despite me talking about shows that are 2 or 3 seasons deep there will be No Spoilers because that wouldn’t really make sense now would it? Thanks for taking the time to read this and I hope you enjoy what I have to say. Read more
