TV: Recommendation – Black Mirror

By James I love Black mirror. It is amaze-balls. If Charlie Brooker’s sci-fi series is not scaring the faecal matter out of me it’s making me regret ever associating myself with social media, technology or even owning a mobile phone! Okay, so I’m not selling it very well, but nor am I exaggerating. I can…

Film: A Triad of Web-Heads – Spiderman In The 21st Century

By James Spiderman has seen more than his fair share of face-lifts since the turn of the millennium. This Marvel favourite has been axed and recommissioned several times over the last decade and a half. He’s been thrown around like a red latex-ed rag doll. But which Spidey is better? Through creative or political disagreements,…

Film: Review – Dunkirk

By James The Dunkirk evacuation was one of the most impressive feats of civilian intervention during war time, to date. A myriad of fishing vessels, trawlers and the like were called upon to rescue some 400,000 British troops from the beaches at Dunkirk; surrounded by Nazis, with an ever-decreasing perimeter.

TV: Only Connect is Back Tonight!

By Bill BOOM! My favourite quiz is back on tonight. Don’t miss Only Connect on BBC 2 at 8:30pm!   The show has a similar difficulty to University Challenge, but without a complete and utter cock-womble of a host: Paxman should really think about retiring to the pit of putrefied filth he crawled out of…

Literature: Booker Longlist Announced!

By Bill Well it’s that time of year again: the time when I spend weeks counting down the days until the reveal of the Booker prize winner. I’ve had my first fix of Booker-y goodness today with the reveal of the Longlist … the first steps to Literary Nirvana where I get to gorge on…

Music: The Recorded Evolution of Imagine Dragons

By James This Indie band was skirting around the peripherals of my music-radar for some time before my cousin enlightened me. He told me to check out the Night Visions album. However, when I went to search for this new, intriguing group with a name that was all too attractive, the content was blocked. It…
