The price of eternal life: A review of Fairy Tail the Movie – Phoenix Priestess

Some anime moves make for an excellent catch up and introduction for fans. Only recently, for example, I suggested that Strong World was a great way to introduce people to One Piece. Sure; you didn’t know the background to all the characters but you still got a flavour for the series. Fairy Tail the Movie: […]

Comic Con’s expanded Constantine trailer

I think this is the best Constantine trailer yet. I write that as someone who wasn’t very impressed by the first and worried the whole show would be a write off. I’ve only come to Constantine via the latter Justice League Dark comic books and he’s always been a prat. Anti-hero? Just unhelpful mage with […]

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D 2 teaser

This is a teaser for the next season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. recorded for SDCC. No prizes for guessing which room the audience was in. Listen out to the agent Mockingbird chat. Mockingbird was introduced back in the early 70s. She doesn’t have full-on super powers but was subject to a science serum injection that […]

Doctor Who: Listen

The latest Doctor Who teaser trailer out. The current pattern continues. It feels like Doctor Who to begin with, the music, the TARDIS… but the Doctor’s not inside. He’s on the roof instead and seems to be meditating. “Listen” he demands in a husk of a shout. It’s a little creepy. Is this a creepy […]

Game of Thrones: Season 4 bloopers

Thanks to Comic Con we can sit back and enjoy a collection of bloopers from season 4 of Game of Thrones. You shouldn’t watch this if you’re worried about spoilers up to s4. There’s no clues as to what happen next. In fact, for much of this video, there’s a total lack of clue. Funny […]

The world of tat: A review of Ashens and the Quest for the GameChild

I remember when I first encountered Ashens on YouTube. I was visiting friends, they had YouTube running on a big TV and were laughing hysterically as someone with a smooth English accent tried to review some awful toy. That’s what Ashens does. He collects old tat – bric’a’brac, old toys, the sort of crap you […]

Doctor Who: Commonwealth Games opening trailer

Just before the Commonwealth Games opening the BBC ran a new trailer for Doctor Who. It’s very much a re-cut of the 12th Doctor’s current introduction. The dinosaur in London is back. Mr long-eye alien is back. The Garrus (Mass Effect) alien is back. Clara’s inability to say whether the Doctor is still a good […]
