The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (soundtrack review).

When reviewing any piece of work, I do my best to take it in isolation and not let related materials influence my judgement. I’m afraid with ‘The Hobbit’ soundtrack, that’s just not possible so expect lots of references to ‘The Lord Of The Rings’ to follow. I’m sure I don’t need to go into the […]

Red 2… spy harder?

If you cast your minds back to the first Red film you will remember a story of elderly spies and assassins brought out of retirement for one last mission. Well, it transpires it wasn’t quite one last mission as Red 2 is coming our way with many of the same stars of the first film […]

Stan Lee… with great power comes great responsibility.

Stan Lee is one of the greatest pensioners the planet – or at least, the geek planet – has ever known. He really doesn’t need to prove it to us, but he keeps on insisting on trying. Take for example the young teenager Bowe Cleveland, another victim of the school shootings that seem to permeate […]

Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine # 55 (magazine review).

At long last, issue number 55 of ‘Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine’ has reappeared from the wormhole and it’s now available for sale. Actually, it’s quite a good issue, so it was well worth the wait. Apart from the fact that I didn’t understand the editorial, which is no bad thing in itself, I thought some […]

Matt Baker: The Art Of Glamour edited by Jim Amash and Eric Nolen-Weathington (book review).

You might not know the name Matt Baker. After all, he died in 1959, but you might have seen his art around occasionally and I did a check on Google and there’s a lot there for you to see. In his short career, heart problems from rheumatic fever when young finally killed him at the […]
