Tomb Raider - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins

Without the pixel boobs, is there even any point?

And so we come to yet another film adaptation of a video game, but this time it is a member of the filthy reboot club as well. So already, this film is in a lot of trouble. Being a video game movie is hard enough, due to the awful history of attempts, but reboots aren't exactly my best friends. (I'm still terrified of the possibility of a Back to the Future reboot one day). So did 2018's attempt to bring Lara Croft to the big screen pay off?

On an island covered with gun-wielding murderers, and it still makes more sense for her to have a bow and arrow than Hawkeye.

Season 4 of this series is going to be amazing.

The Unanswered Questions of Fairy Tail

Written by Shiggins

Clearly, we need a Fairy Tail Super.

Almost every anime/manga out there make too many plotlines to wrap them all up neatly, and Fairy Tail was no exception. With the anime set to make a (final?) return later this year, let's have a look back at everything the manga either forgot to finish or considered completed but I respectfully felt could have gone further. To put it simply, here are a few plotlines and questions that never got resolved, or at least not to a satisfying level.

So many pointy parts on them! Why they all so pointy?!

The Rarely-Discussed Cons of 'Indie Gaming'

Written by Shiggins

A brief step out of my comfort zone.

Usually, I talk about films and anime but with the past few years being so poisonous due to gaming practices and myself adoring video games both AAA and independent, I decided to take a risk and try writing about something a lot of people don't take into account; The cons of creating your own video game without the help of a studio. Usually, people discuss the pros such as creative freedom, but I'm a special sausage. Let's take a blunt look at the cons, that I hope you consider before you go into developing your own game.

I feel like this picture could be a very fitting metaphor...

Top 10 Worst Dragon Ball Characters

Written by Shiggins

This list hurt to write.

Through the tears I shed for my beloved Dragon Ball Super about to go on hiatus, I made a decision to write two lists about the entire continuity of Akira Toriyama's finest work. One of them will be a positive list that I can only write after Super has finished, so let's get to the negative one first. And when talking about negatives, its always best to go for the classic character list. So here we are... My Top 10 characters from the Original, Z, GT and Super instalments of Dragon Ball!

My Hero Academia Chapters 170 & 171 Review - Together with Eri & Gentle and La Brava

Written by Shiggins

The villain has already succeeded.

Yes, if the newest antagonist wants to be remembered, then he shouldn't worry anymore because he has already made me burst out laughing and I doubt I'll be forgetting him anytime soon. And he is to be commended for somehow managing to win the show when the class are all having a great time themselves.

That reminds me. I need to think about my own video content...

Black Panther - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins

Hail to the King, baby.

With Avengers; Infinity War only two months away (three months if you aren't in the UK), one can't help but by hyped up. So there is already quite a lot of pressure for Black Panther, the 18th entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe's impressive roster, but I'm thrilled to say that the king of Wakanda manages to stand strong and bring another satisfying adventure to the superhero gallery. For the most part.

Move over, Batman. There's a new man who wears black, dresses like an animal and beats up foes in the night!

Dumbledore's Sexuality - Does it Matter?

Written by Shiggins

He's gay!

Yes, if you don't know yet, it was established long ago and confirmed canon by Harry Potter author herself, JK Rowling, that Albus Dumbledore was homosexual. Recently, the director of Fantastic Beasts 2 has announced that although Albus will be making an appearance in it, played by the fantastic Jude Law, his sexuality will not be addressed whatsoever. And since everyone on the internet has been speaking about it, I figured I might as well discuss if this is a big deal or not.

Still my favourite portrayal of Dumbledore to date.

Fifty Shades of Grey - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins

Fuck me.

With the release of the climax coming up, I thought it only made sense to release a review of the very first instalment of the series. That meant I actually had to watch it for the first time, strapped to the chair so I didn't run screaming from the room. Speaking of rooms, many went to see both these films because they keep expecting it to be a disaster like Tommy Wiseau's entire career. And now that I've watched it, I can safely say... it isn't.

And yet we're told that it's homosexuality that gets shoved in our faces...

My Hero Academia Chapters 168 & 169 Review - A Collection of Aoyama's Eccentricities & The Culture Festival

Written by Shiggins

Now THIS is what I wanted!

While it's great to have fun action pieces and scary villains, I want more feel-good scenarios and growth! Seriously, if anyone can recommend an enjoyable manga to me that has some enjoyable characters and doesn't rely too heavily on action/fanservice, let me know because I need something like this to read on a regular basis and I will adore you so much!

Well, someone wants to be the next Jojo.
