Darth Vader #6

So far this series has proven to be most interesting; I've always wanted to know more about Vader in the years he was at his most fearsome. Between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back there is a profound change in his disposition, as he moves from being the Emperor's fist to having his own agenda in the search for a certain Skywalker. With the Marvel comics canon I wanted to see if they could bring anything interesting to the character.

Star Wars Rebels S2 E1

With a double-length première episode Rebels comes flying right into the thick of the action. You might immediately be confused if you're a stickler for the old canon, but with that being swept away it allows the Rebels team to show us a different takes on things.

Blackhat (2015) in 100 Words

Released on DVD and Blu-Ray today, a review of Michael Mann's Blackhat.

Blackhat is the worst kind of movie. A boring one.

Even with Thor nonchalantly dressing or undressing seemingly every ten minutes it was a struggle to get through this. In fact, discovering that the Blu-Ray itself was transparent was far more interesting than any of its contents. 

Hemsworth is wasted, large portions of the story are painfully obvious and it drags on for too long. Only Swordfish has made hacking remotely tolerable, and that was because it was ridiculous. Here we just see horribly dry brogamming.

Watch something terrible instead. At least it will give you something to talk about.

If you like what you see have a look down the right hand side for links to my other posts. You might also want to check out the Super Duper Stuff Facebook page where I share all my posts along with many other things I think are Super Duper!

Warm Bodies (2013) in 100 Words

A rom-com-zom?

Taken on its own merits Warm Bodies is a decent enough watch, but Bub and Big Daddy are about as talented as zombies can get for my liking, and these zombies go far past that.
