Film: The Rise Of Superheroes

By James Before university, my love for all things of interest to this blog was somewhat unfocused and random. Whilst I studied (or procrastinated rather), I developed a knowledge and understanding of the elements and aspects of these things that I enjoyed. One of the biggest was the growth of the superhero genre. In fact,…

Film: Recommendation – Hector And The Search For Happiness

By James It turns out that this film wasn’t rated too highly - by pretty much every critic I have come across. The vast majority of which, basically, state how the film is swamped in schmaltz, leaving little else to be watched or appreciated. Well, I’m here to make a case for the opposite. I…

Music: The Top 15 Led Zeppelin Songs of All Time

By Bill For me, Led Zeppelin are the greatest rock band that ever walked the Earth. By extension of that, they are also one of the greatest musical acts of all time. Because they were only around for a few years, it means that nearly the entirety of their output is solid gold and so…

Gaming: Recommendation – Spore

By James Am I back with another recommendation for a dated PC game that I should probably move on from and find bigger and better things to do with my time? Yes… But in my defence, this one is not as old as some of the others I’ve spoken about in the past. The amount…

Music: The Top 15 Aerosmith Songs of All Time

By Bill It’s a criminal shame that Aerosmith never enjoyed the same level of success over here as they have in their native America. A cross between The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin, in the states they are rightfully heralded as rock gods and are one of the most commercially successful music acts of all…
