I recently downloaded Pokemon Go again, upon hearing of the new update introducing trading… Much like everyone, I too went through a period where I had stopped playing… So after installing, I asked myself ‘is it fun again’?

Film & TV Club – Our Favourite Action Films!
Welcome to Respawning’s Film & TV Club! The purpose of this is to get a bunch of us together once a week and allow us the chance to chat shit about whatever takes our fancy in the world of Films & TV! With Sicario: Day of the Soldado blasting onto cinema screens in a few […]
Solo: A Star Wars Story is quite good. Yeah, there it is. I said it. It’s not half bad. It’s a film with some heart to it, at least compared to the safe-as-houses ‘The Force Awakens’ and the cool but slightly characterless ‘Rogue one’. Alden Ehrenreich is everything I could have expected from a young Han […]
Earlier, when I wrote my first impressions, they had to be kept short to prevent spoiling certain plot points within the movie. So here goes my SPOILER-filled review. Please do NOT read on if you don’t want big plot points spoiled for you! Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
Although Guardians Vol.2 was my favourite movie in the MCU, Spider-Man will always be my favourite comic book character. He is one of the most wholesome and joyful characters ever. I’d also say it’s fair to call him Marvels top character in their roster. In terms of comic book characters, DC owns the most known […]
Oh god you guys this is it. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 is one of my favourite movies of all time. It is also in my opinion the best MCU film. I mean Infinity War could be better, but RIGHT now it’s the best. The first movie to feature these characters was such an unexpected […]
I’m going to be honest from the start of this, Doctor Strange changed the MCU. Not only did it introduce a brand new concept in the form of magic, but it opened more possibilities. Within in the space of a single movie we were introduced to time travel and sorcerers on Earth. Anyone who knows […]
God dammit Feige why did you have to make my two favourites fight each other! Yes that’s right ladies and gents we have officially kicked off Phase three. This for me is the peak of Marvel and has some of the best movies. There are a few that divide the audience, but alas I love […]
We are now at the end of phase two! There’s not exactly going to be a gigantic blockbuster this time, but there will be a lot of fun. Ant-Man is one of those films that you enjoy when you see it. Then you forget about it for a bit, but whenever you re-watch, you probably […]
Avengers: Age of Ultron in theory should be a gigantic conclusion to the second phase of the MCU. However, it’s not even the last film in the phase. An interesting fact before we start is that this movie actually came out 3 years ago today! Crazy how much time flies, I remember exactly where I […]
Now this is a movie I did not expect to love so much. Before this, the Guardians were a C-list comedy team of sorts. They weren’t even on the same scale as the X-Men or Avengers. I mean when you tell people you’re making a movie with a walking tree and a talking raccoon it […]
While we got off to a bad start to phase 2 in 2013. 2014 would be the year of absolute classics. This year we would get The Winter Solider and Guardians of the Galaxy. One of these are usually at the top of someone’s MCU ranking list and it’s easy to see why. Today we […]
Aww man, phase 2 didn’t have a great start did it. While I don’t think there’s an absolutely terrible Marvel movie, there are definitely some bad ones. Thor: The Dark World is one that a lot of people will mention as the worst. Saying it’s the worst doesn’t make it a terrible movie, it means […]
Phase 2 is in full swing! Overall my feelings on this phase as a whole is pretty mixed. There was some bad eggs in phase 1 but there were also greats like Iron Man and Avengers. There’s something similar going on again in this phase with some movies that strike out as great and others […]
Well here we are guys, we made it to the end of phase 1. It’s nostalgic and quite amazing to be at this point in the MCU. With Infinity War just over a week away it makes this movie feel so small in scale. However at the time the idea of having Iron Man, Thor […]
Well we’ve made it to the last Phase 1 origin story. It’s been a lot of fun remembering where these characters came from. Despite my distaste for Iron Man 2 and Hulk, the main 3 Avengers get great introductions. Captain America was one I was more interested in than Thor, yet still didn’t compare to […]
Yes I know we skipped Sunday, but I was busy eating Yorkshire Puddings and finishing phase 1 of the MCU. If you remember, we last covered Iron Man 2, the first sequel. At the end was a tease for a more out of world superhero, the mighty Thor. When this movie originally came out though […]
Now I’ve spent the last two movies talking about Iron Man, Tony Stark, and my dying love for Robert Downy Jr. However, Iron Man 2 does not live up to the huge expectations I had after that perfect origin story. We’re not dealing with a bad film here, unlike Hulk it actually manages to keep […]
While I previously optimistic and excited about this journey I have to lay this on the table. I do not like The Incredible Hulk very much. While the character grew better with time after a literal face lift, I can’t deny that this movie is overall very underwhelming. Coming off of Iron Man, this feels […]
