Captain Marvel

Well we finally managed to defeat the Skrulls who had been impersonating us and procrastinating so it seems only fitting that we come back with our slightly overdue review of Captain Marvel! Oh and be warned this is a long episode even by our standards.

Carol Danvers is a Kree warrior with incredible powers... or is she? There's more than meets the eye with this wise cracking, photo blasting badass so when she comes to Earth and meets a younger Agent Nicholas J. Fury and a very wet-behind-the-ears Agent Phil Coulson you know there's going to be fireworks... literally!

Join us for our review of the latest Marvel blockbuster to shatter records and defy expectations and then let us know your thoughts.

The Umbrella Academy

Netflix does it again, another smash-hit TV show adapted from a comic book but this time it's "The Umbrella Academy" - written by Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance and published by Dark Horse Comics and naturally we couldn't keep away from it.

They're not like any reluctant heroes you've ever seen before, this is definitely not a mainstream comic or TV show but it's well worth your time and we hope you'll come along and listen to our thoughts.

Aquaman Review

Aquaman, the latest DCEU offering from Warner Bros, was one of the surprise success stories of 2018 having now taken over $1bn worldwide! Following hot on the heels of Wonder Woman, Aquaman tells the story og Arthur Curry - half human, half Atlantian - as he struggles in a world where he isn't quite sure whether he belongs on land or under the sea and James Wan has done a fantastic job of telling the story of one of comics most misunderstood characters.

We'll also do a news round-up focussing on some of the other big TV and movie releases this year such as the recently released trailer for "Spider-Man: Far From Home" and a look ahead to season 8 of Game of Thrones.

Into The Spider-Verse Review

For our first episode of 2019 we wanted to review Sony's "Into The Spider-Verse" which was a stunning way to end a brilliant year for comic-related film and television.

The film also started 2019 by winning the Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature Film and all while receiving global praise for an interesting, exciting new look at a character we already know so much about.

It's an all-star cast, a heart-felt script and a wonderful reminder of why we all love Spider-Man so much no matter who happens to be under the mask.

Finally the most anticipated film of 2019 has it's name - Avengers 4 is officially titled "Avengers: Endgame" and we have our first teaser trailer too!

Picking up sometime after the events of Avengers: Infinity War, Endgame will see the remaining Avengers dealing with the consequences of Thanos' now-infamous finger snap which wiped out half of all living creatures in the universe to create a cosmic balance. We saw heroes and civilians disappear in the blink of an eye but what happened after that? How did the world cope? Does anyone have any idea what really happened in the forests of Wakanda and how does the world start to rebuild after such a disaster?

Hot on the heels of that incredible Captain Marvel trailer, we'll look into the teaser for Endgame, give some theories on what we think may have happened and look ahead to what is sure to be the most spectacular film that the MCU has ever seen.

Just two months before Avengers 4 hits cinemas, we get our first solo outing with Captain Marvel - confirmed as being the most powerful hero in the entire MCU - and a chance to see her powers before we see them being put to use trying to defeat Thanos.

The film is groundbreaking for Marvel as it will be their first Hollywood blockbuster starring a female superhero and takes place during the 1990s where we see younger versions of Nick Fury and Phil Coulson helping Carol Danvers investigate her former life on Earth before she became a cosmic powerhouse stuck in the middle of the famed Kree/Skrull war.

Brie Larson takes on her biggest role to date and all signs point to another smash-hit Marvel films with the trailer showing the film to take place both on Earth and in the deepest regions of space. Let us know your thoughts on the trailer, the character and your expectations for the film itself. We can't wait to see this!

Red Dead Redemption 2

It's been a long 8 years since Rockstar's "Red Dead Redemption" first made waves on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 and finally one of the most sought after sequels of all-time has finally landed to critical acclaim.

With an estimated 60 hours minimum of gaming time needed to fully explore this huge ever-changing map it's little wonder that sales of the game hit $725M on the opening weekend and so far 17 million copies have been sold worldwide leaving the game as a contender for 2018 Game of the Year despite only having been released in October. No small feat but if there's one thing Rockstar know how to do it's make a blockbuster game.

So strap on your chaps, load up your rifle and mosey on over to hear what we have to say about this game. Yeeeehaw!
