• 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, […]

  • Avengers: Endgame – Catharsis Of The Arses

    Despite some of my previous posts about the male body, (and the title) this is not a post about butts. But if you’ve seen Avengers: Endgame, you’ll see that maybe it […]

  • 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 […]

  • Fragile Masculinity: The Westworld Penis

    Who doesn’t love a good penis? Wait, don’t answer that question: there’s probably some sort of shame in your answer, the same type of shame I’m feeling for writing this […]

  • Putting Your Dick In Crazy – Tom Hardy’s Taboo

    Saturday evening on the BBC: I think the polite term here is “fluffy,” full of appointment-viewing that you’re not exactly heart-broken to miss. (Doctor Who and Strictly Come Dancing are […]

It’s A Jurassic World After All

No, I don’t know why they continue to keep (re)making sequels and prequels and spiritual successors to films that don’t really needs to be fiddled with. This is the rant that I was ready to go on about Jurassic World. And probably many people like me, 20-and-30-and-something-somethings: “why are you messing with the original?” Except…that’s sort of what Jurassic Park is all about, isn’t it? Messing […]
