Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: Review

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is the sequel to the 2014 hit and follows our favourite band of misfits on their adventures as they set out to protect the galaxy. The Guardians of the Galaxy may just be my favourite gang of superheroes. Their bad ass outlook and the constant banter to and fro makes…

Beauty and the Beast: Review

Beauty and the Beast is the latest Disney film to grace the big screen and is a live action remake of the 1991 animated musical. I felt a live action remake of Beauty and the Beast would go either one of two ways, be a hit like the remake of The Jungle Book or be…

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,…

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…
