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.

Dragon Ball FighterZ - Game Review

Written by Shiggins

Let's fighting love!

I love the Dragon Ball franchise, but fighting games have never been my forte. Button mashing to do the most complicated combos imaginable while a superior foe smashes my face in has never been a source of entertainment for me, either in real life or video games. With the appearance of FighterZ however, it was time to give fighting games another try and pray that I have grown in skill as well as age.

I know it's pronounced "Fighters" but I pronounce it Fighter Z and if you have a problem with that, gather the Dragon Balls and wish for me to shut up!

My Hero Academia Chapter 167 Review - The No.1 Hero's Starting Line

Written by Shiggins

Finally, back to school! (I bet nobody else has ever said that).

Yes, my wish has been granted. The main characters are all back in the same classroom together, as the title says they should be! To top it off, we even get a surprise glimpse of someone who has never really gotten the time he deserves, and next week could either be a hilarious chapter or a terrifying one!

Camie, stop trying to be shipped with Bakugou. It won't go well for you.

Xenoverse Games Review

Written by Shiggins

With FighterZ coming out this week, I thought it was a good idea to go back and remind myself of the last major Dragon Ball video game series that was released, to see if it was better or worse than I remembered. Developed by Dimps, best known for the Budokai trilogy, this was the game people had been begging to happen for many years. And was it worth the wait?

It has to be said that the covers of these games are just... so boring.

My Hero Academia Chapter 164, 165 & 166 Review - Masegaki, Win Those Kids' Hearts & A Warm Provisional License Training Course

Written by Shiggins


A trio of chapters that proves that the true monsters of society are children! They called me mad for believing they would destroy us all, but this manga just proved me right! Thank God we have the great whale man to protect us! (Also yes, I am so so so sorry that it took me this long to bring out this review!)

Fairy Tail: Dragon Cry Review

Written by Shiggins

Two-in-one review!

Yes, this one has been a long time coming, and it covers both anime and films so go me! For those who are unaware, this is the second movie of the Fairy Tail series and has only had two advertisements. One of them was a trailer, and the other was an epic poster of Natsu with a dragon wing and claw. Is the result worthy of that badass image? Well...

Anime-only fans are going to be sooo confused.

Coco Review

Written by Shiggins

Oh Dios mío, Pixar!

A film that has been in development for 7 years finally made its debut in America last November, but life is sometimes cruel and so I had to wait until January for the movie to come out, due to the fact I am Scotland-bound. So while this review may seem late to some of you, I assure you that this was written as soon as I finally saw the film.

Note: This is a spoiler-free review.

That is one bridge I do not trust!
