Shazam! (2019) (blu-ray film review).

I have to confess the three beginnings don’t make a lot of sense because no one is identified. The first choice by Shazam the wizard (actor Djimon Hounsou) doesn’t appear to be pure of heart. The young Billy Batson gets lost in a crowd at the fun fair when young and brought up in an […]

Build Your Own Gaming PC by Adam Barnes (book review).

Although I’m not sure if I’ll ever custom-build a games computer, I have modified every desktop computer I’ve owned with videocards, modems and RAM so it’s not as though I wouldn’t have some background knowledge of matching specifications and making things work. I’m also aware of the problems a single component failure can have repercussions […]

As it was originally released in 2010, it’s hard to say which of the various continuities of the Marvel Universe it currently belongs to. However, considering that it also includes the likes of the original vigilante 1940s Angel and other minor […]

Celebrity Werewolf by Andrew Wallace (book review).

I was aware of the existence of author Andrew Wallace and I’d always meant to check out his work. When this book, ‘Celebrity Werewold’, came to my attention while I was looking round the dealers room at Novacon. I wasn’t at all sure what to make of it. The title, ‘Celebrity Werewolf’, really gave few […]
