In one scene plastered all over the marketing for Wonder Woman, we see the female heroine step onto the battlefield, alone, to try and take out the German forces. This action-packed scene and what follows immediately after it combine to deliver not only one of the best action sequences in a superhero movie of all-time, but it is also a testament to just how crowd-pleasing the movie is as a whole. Wonder Woman is a bold, confident movie with as much heart as it has soul. Wonder Woman is not only a groundbreaking achievement, but also a movie that inspires much-needed hope in dark times like this. And given how crazy things are around the world, Wonder Woman is exactly the type of hero we need right now.

For all music lovers out there, everyone has a band and or musician that has touched their heart in a significant way, dubbing them your favourite. Having a favourite musical influence can sometimes lead to a borderline obsession. For some that obsession comes in the form of stalking the group and or artist throughout and entire tour, or it could be that you have every piece of memorabilia that has ever been produced that dawns the logo or name of that band or artist; t-shirts, CDs, maybe even some vinyl’s or patches. All of those examples are pretty standard and expected to be in any fan’s repertoire of support swag for their favourite artists and my collection for some of my favourites has grown significantly over the years. However, there is one type of paraphernalia that I can’t wrap my head around; Deluxe CDs. Continue reading F*** Deluxe CDs & Live Albums
After the fourth instalment in this franchise, On Stranger Tides, I would have figured Pirates of the Caribbean would be done. There just didn’t seem to be anything more to say. Even the actors seemed bored. But then number 5, Dead Men Tell No Tales came out, I thought maybe they’d stumbled on something great. Like maybe they’d found something worth bringing all this back for another go. After all, they weren’t going to just bang out another sequel, were they? Were they? Well yes and no. Up front – it was fun to watch but certainly not up to the brilliance of the first movie, or even the second.

It’s hard to believe that we live in a world where we have five blockbuster films based off a ride a Disneyworld, yet here we are. The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise kicked off in 2003 with The Curse of the Black Pearl. Due to the huge success of the film and the popularity of Johnny Depp’s performance as Captain Jack Sparrow, three more films followed. 2011’s On Stranger Tides was so negatively reviewed, it seemed the franchise was dead in the water. However, here we are in 2017 with the newest film in the franchise Dead Men Tell No Tales to try to raise this saga from the depths.
