A Trip To Berlin: Day 1

At the start of the month, my girlfriend and I decided to take an impromptu trip to the German capital of Berlin. Having only ever driven through Germany in passing, I was looking forward to soak up some local culture and cuisine.  Our adventure began with an early flight from Manchester which arrived in Berlin…

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tale: Review

After 6 years away from the big screen, Jack Sparrow is back in what is, in my opinion, one of the best Disney films in a long while! Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tale is the fifth instalment in the Pirates of the Caribbean series. The story follows Jack Sparrow as he…

POPINABOX #2 May 2017

After a great first months subscription to Popinabox in April, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Mays delivery! The trio of Pop Vinyls arrived midway through the month and I have to be honest, it was a disappointing selection! The first Pop which I had been sent in May’s delivery was Uncle Rico…

A Dog’s Purpose: Review

A Dog’s Purpose is a 2017 American comedy-drama film based on the 2010 novel by the same name. It follows the multiple lives a dog leads and a dogs purpose in each of these lives, as the title suggests. Marley and Me really did set the bar for emotional dog films. No film has really…

Pop vinyls have become one of the most popular collectibles in recent years.

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…

The Fate of the Furious: Review

The Fate of the Furious is the eighth instalment in the Fast and the Furious franchise and as ever features its hugely star studded cast comprising of Dwayne Johnson, Vin Diesel etc. The film grossed $532 million worldwide during its opening weekend, setting the record for the highest-grossing opening of all time. ‘It’s lost its…

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…

Iceland in a Nutshell: Day 3

After an exciting day of adventure and taking in the sights of Iceland, Day 3 was set to be a day of relaxation and a last day of taking in the Icelandic culture. Yet again, another bright and early start as we boarded the coach as we set off for the Blue Lagoon! The Blue…
