Ok, I admit it, I wish I was in the film. Even if it was just getting a wet willy….. Phrasing!
Full disclosure here, I am a big fan of the pool. So much so of course that I went out of my way to get a t-shirt with Deadpool riding a bear against an explosion to wear during opening night of Deadpool 2 debuting in the UK. The advertising campaign for the sequel had been even better than the first, including a brilliant “sorry” to David Beckham so it’s easy to say I couldn’t wait to watch the film.
Therefore of course you should take everything I say here with a pinch of salt.
But the sad fact is, that the sequel to the wonderfully put together entertaining original film starring Ryan Reynolds as the Merc with a Mouth is….. Not as good as the first film. Sorry campers but it’s true despite everything we wish for. It’s the fall of society as we know it, the world will burn and there are no more Chimichangas. But wait, there’s more!
I enjoyed the film a lot. Huh? How does that work? Is this the obvious fanboy coming out? Perhaps but join me on this journey about Family, Death, Life, Death, More Life and a bit more death….. then you will see what I am talking about, and thus the fog of anger will lift. For about three seconds before you all come back baying for my blood.
For those of you who have not seen the first film, you will for sure need to go watch that first before coming to this as it will not be too friendly to those wandering into the whole thing without any context of the events beforehand. We find Deadpool happily enjoying his life as a hired killer, dealing with various naughty people to the tune of Dolly Parton’s 9-to-5. He’s living with his squeeze Vanessa (the very sexy Morena Baccarin) till something occurs which kind of sets the scene for the rest of the film as a plot point. Continue reading →
It’s fair to say I have been looking forward to the sequel of the wonderful Deadpool film with Ryan Reynolds and the majority of the original cast being back with new faces. Josh Brolin not content with being one Marvel character, turns up as a time traveller hell bent on doing that kid from Hunt for the Wilderpeople in. Will he succeed? Also more importantly, can I get a cameo in Deadpool 3? Also, can there be a Deadpool 3? Let’s find out!

This was a bit of a trial and error on this livestream. Trying to do a livestream from the sofa when not being able to see the chat window is shall we say, not the best idea.
But there was a reason why I wanted to sit back and relax on this one; I had a Raging need to dispense some Justice! Raging Justice finally came out on PC, Xbox and PS4 for a really well priced sum of £8.99. But the big question was, was it worth the wait? Well just watch the unedited livestream here and find out!
Also, watch me lose my shit by not understanding how to knock bad guys off bikes and then just want to murder everyone on a tractor. True story…..

Given the huge amount of praise being heaped on Avengers: Infinity War right now, it’s all too easy now to forget there is another player in town. Well, sort of. Let’s be honest; at the moment, DC and Warner Bros’ collective workforces are sobbing into their pillows every night right now. They tried to kick start their own universe of comic book films at a vastly accelerated pace to cash in on what Marvel had spent a lot of time creating.
They f**ked it up.
They tried to catch up so fast that there are moments where it’s all too easy to get lost with what’s going on and frankly, the tone change with the DC universe brought about by Zack Snyder put a lot of people off. But is the series beyond redemption?
The last entry of the DC Universe was the rapid introduction of the Justice League, featuring Batman, The Flash, Wonder Woman, Cyborg and Aquaman. It didn’t fare as expected at the Box Office, pulling in less than the first Man of Steel film did in 2013. Critics pretty much lambasted it, and the much publicised meh behind the scenes wouldn’t help matters. Let’s be fair, if it was a case of everyone filling out their contractual obligations to ensure they didn’t get sued by walking away, you wouldn’t blame them. Continue reading →
A million fanboys cried out in terror and were suddenly …. well, not silenced, let’s put it that way.
Given the recent yearly “May the Fourth be with you” jokes etc against one of the world’s most legendary movie series now owned by the evil Takazuki Corp. (formerly known as Disney), and the recent release of the Last Jedi on shiny disc, it’s about time we take a look at a film which basically fractured the fanboys of Star Wars and unleashed a torrent of meh upon YouTube and Reddit.
With a box office performance of over $1.3 billion, 4 Oscar bait nominations with even more awards perhaps being thrown its way, why has the Last Jedi actually annoyed so many people as well as delighted so many? The question then follows; Was I along with all others all wrong about it after all?
Let’s be clear, during the Last Jedi Aftermath video recorded directly after watching it the first time, I put down all my chips on being so happy that in essence, instead of being a copy and paste job which was a lot of what Episode 7: The Force Awakens turned out to be, they tried something new. The Last Jedi was f**king fantastic. But now the dust has mostly settled, the hype died down and it’s best to see now whether or not the praise was deserved. Continue reading →
What better way to spend a gloriously sunny Saturday Afternoon in London than in your front room playing a card game? Well that was certainly my thoughts as we embarked on the Hearthstone Happy Hour: May Bank Holiday Edition!
In this unedited livestream video, we lose in a pay to win Tavern Brawl which makes me miserable, win and lose with a deck designed to Inner fire the rage other people feel and of course, we also hunt alone with an all spell hunter deck.
Enjoy! The video can be viewed here also directly if the above doesn’t work; https://youtu.be/k35H049jWpw
May the Fourth rolled around again and with it all the memes about Star Wars came about. so what better way to show horn in pretending to care about Star Wars than revisiting the lambasted Star Wars Battlefront 2? EA recently patched in the loot boxes back but now the progression system is no longer knackered and purely based on play. Too little too late? Will it still punish anyone who hasn’t played the game in a while like most multiplayer games?
Well, yes it does but what do you expect? I am rubbish at this regardless but…. anyway watch the unedited livestream from May the Fourth. The video can be viewed here also directly if the above doesn’t work; https://youtu.be/PAJNQQjY8UM
It was at this point we wondered why walk through the water when there was a bridge nearby….
In many ways, it’s a shame I never got round to writing about Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle during its Christmas cinematic release window last year. But of course, let’s be honest, everyone was more clamouring for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Well they were till everyone cried out at the fact they tried to doing something different with Star Wars. But that’s a subject for another mini meh (coming soon I might add).
With it’s recent release on shiny disc and streaming services, it felt right to finally revisit last year’s surprise sequel to the 1995 original Jumanji which starred the late Robin Williams as Alan Parish. A kid who got stuck in a board game, only to be released along with all hell 30 years later by another couple of kids.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle had a number of fears to address, mostly notably that it would just forget about the first film and just carry on with the ol’ remake excuse that Hollywood has been on a complete bender for ages with. It had a new cast, it seemed to have a premise only vaguely similar to the original when viewing the first trailer and you could be forgiven for thinking that they were about to f**k it up.
After all, the last thing Sony Pictures tried to reboot for the big time as it were, was Ghostbusters and we all know how that turned out.
Sony’s sole biggest hit of 2017 until Jumanji came to the big screen was Spiderman: Homecoming with partnership with the overlords of Marvel Studios. So of course, no pressure eh? Was this worth a watch at the time, and more so now it’s basically available for you all to slob out in your pants on the sofa to? Continue reading →
Not the first time a big purple headed monster has brought fear to anyone. I speak from experience…..cough….
Yeah, Avengers: Infinity War surely will bomb at the box office, I mean, who would ever to spend their money watching a film which lasts over two and a half hours which brings together 10 years worth of stories and characters to an epic conclusion in a cinematic universe? Where we see various flawed heroes battle against the ultimate villain and we honestly don’t know where this is going to go?
Oh who am I f**king kidding?
At the time of writing this non-spoiler mini meh about possibly the biggest blockbuster event of the year for Marvel and Disney, they already within the opening weekend taken an estimated 630 MILLION dollars. That is currently excluding China where typically big action packed films like this will do even better, so in essence we already know this is on course to basically allow Disney to finally buy a country like they clearly wanted to….. Probably the UK from April 2019 after Brexit (topical!).
So it may not have come as a surprise that I was one of the ones who rushed over to see a midnight screening in the UK of Infinity War given how much of a fanboy I tend to be when it comes to the media comic overlords’ content being pumped out time and time again. There’s literally no way I cannot be biased about this so of course when I write the next sentence, take it with whatever salt you want;
Avengers: Infinity War is possibly the best film of 2018.
Let that sink in.
It’s only the end of April at the time of writing and I am stating there is already a best film of the year. More than that, it’s a film where unless you’ve been invested in the Marvel Cinematic Universe all this time, you’re not going to have any idea whatsoever about who anyone is, where they are, and of course what’s happening to determine the fate of the universe or even, just of downtown New York.

Here you will find my jolly fun self livestreaming on occasion, talking rubbish badly playing games and all in all, being a wee scamp. This was the latest Hearthstone Happy Hour Livestream from the 27th April and of course, it is unedited so there will be points you have to skip forward.
