Kong: Skull Island Review

So it took me 2 months and 22 days but last week I finally made my first trip to the cinema of the year. Poor I know, and there are still several films I need to catch up and watch that I have missed! The first film of the year for me took the shape of Kong:…

WE DID IT!

So yesterday my girlfriend and I completed our first 5 kilometre run in a time of 30 minutes and 45 seconds. This was just 45 seconds over our target time, but we were very happy nonetheless and this now gives us a time to beat for our next run! The run itself was surprisingly enjoyable,…

4 days to go…

Just 4 days left now until I run my first 5K for charity and I couldn’t be more excited!  On Sunday, my girlfriend and I got in our first practice for our 5K which we are running on Sunday 12th March for the Stroke Association. We took things easy and managed to complete 2K in…

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children Film Review

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is a 2016 dark fantasy film directed by Tim Burton, based on the 2011 novel of the same name by Ransom Riggs. As the title suggests, this is a very peculiar film! This would not have been my first choice for a Saturday night film, but my little sister…

Taking a stab at YouTube

As you may have noticed, a lot of my posts are video game related and for years I have longed to set up my own YouTube channel showcasing my best gaming moments. And since I finally got my magnificent iMac I can now finally enter the world of YouTube! Currently my channel consists of 5…

7 days to train for a 5K?!

Whilst this would probably be no problem for the Average Joe, months of beer guzzling and pizza eating have not left me in good stead to run this 5K next Sunday!  Me and my girlfriend decided that if we signed up for an impromptu 5K, this would help motivate us to keep active and healthy…

Today I bought…

…an iMac! Yep, the spending continues! And this time it’s on probably my most expensive purchase ever! For an absolute AGE I have longed to replace my now 10 year old laptop for a high powered replacement! I had been deliberating for the past couple of weeks on which machine to choose, and after several…

Today I bought…

…a Jordan hoodie! I’m a huge fan of American sports and I am a huge admirer of Michael Jordan, however I have never had anything from the Jordan range, until today! I picked up this beauty from the Nike store for £60 and already can’t wait to add more to my new found collection! I’ve…

Hitman: Sniper Review

Now I’m not a huge player of mobile games, other than Football Manager, I think the last game I actually bought to play was way back when Angry Birds was on the scene! When I saw there was a Hitman game available on the AppStore I couldn’t resist! Hitman Sniper is a mobile shooter game…

Today I bought…

…Star Wars Lego!  Back in my review of Rogue One, I mentioned how I had such fond memories of recreating battles from the Star Wars films with my own Lego sets, and since I enjoyed Rogue One so much I was gave into temptation and picked up these sets! Thanks to an Amazon voucher left…

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Review

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is a game that I have wanted to play for an absolute age but never got round to it, so when it became free to play the other weekend on the Xbox Store I thought it would be rude not to test it out! Rainbow Six Siege is a first…

Star Wars Battlefront DLC Review

Star Wars Battlefront has been out for some time now and the final DLC pack was released in December in line with the release of Rogue One. I bought the season pass for Battlefront way back when the game was first released and I have put a decent amount of hours in to each of…
