Terminator?I Barely Know Her

I didn’t get to see Terminator: Dark Fate opening weekend, and it didn’t bode particularly well that I hadn’t heard much about it once it opened: there were no outstandingly amazing reviews, no particular hatred, just…nothing. Sure, I didn’t go out of my way to find reviews or that, but I had heard or seen a grand total of nobody talking about this film. […]

The Mucky Chucky

It takes a certain level of messy that, when I’m in the middle of watching a film, I’m just thinking about how problematic the story is. That was me when watching the 2019 take on Child’s Play, a film so frustrating on so many levels that I’m unsure how much is intentional. Because it has to be, right? A fresh take and something […]

The Ultimatest Of Alliances?

I like video-games; I like comic-books; I like stories. It should come as no surprise that I’d be interested in things that bring the lot of them together, right? Yeah, that’s a winner. Marvel Ultimate Alliance: The Black Order got announced back at the Game Awards of 2018, a Nintendo Switch exclusive that, to me, seemed both amazing and weird. Not […]

A Touch Of Glass

Yeah, it’s been a while since I’ve written anything. Are you that surprised? It’s not like I haven’t been going out and watching things . Or playing things. Or reading things. (Scrap that last bit. I have been more distracted by sudoku and picross/nonogram games of the last while to actually commit to reading anything in a while.) It’s more […]

Owning A Star Trek: A Review (With Spoilers)

Its’ been about 12 years since the Star Trek franchise left our TV screens; well (repeats aside); it’s been even longer since good Star Trek left our TV screens. (I never cared for Enterprise, found Star Trek: Voyager boringly problematic, but will fight anyone who has anything ill to say about Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.) Bringing the franchise back to TV screens was always going to be problematic: while there’s plenty […]

Space, The Final Front-Bore

These are the voyages of the starship Orville. Its meaningless mission: to explore a world that has already been established; to seek out moments that are meant to be humorous (and aren’t); to badly go where science fiction and comedy have probably gone before. “Hey, there’s a new Seth MacFarlane show on TV that’s basically trying to do a comedy […]

When The Shit Gets Shitty

You know when you’re having one of those days when life is just being a bit of a dick to you? Yeah, that day’s been running for a few months at this stage, like some sort of time-travel of something. I am in Groundhog Day  and don’t even have the joy of putting up some snow. Last blog-post, did a video […]

Just Us & Injustice

My darling husband decided he’d be nice to me and buy me a copy of Injustice 2 for no other reason than he thought I’d enjoy it (if only he’d stop playing Friday The 13th for long enough for me to get a go on it.)You see kids, part of the fun of Netherrealm games is going through every single character and checking out their stats […]
