Agents of SHIELD Season 5 Episodes 11 – 17 Review

AoS S5 P2

Agents of SHIELD return to the present in order to stop the apocalypse in this middle chapter of Season 5, with some elements of their time in the future coming along with them. As the middle it does its job of setting up the end, and it also gives us plenty of good story moments too, including a twist with Fitz that was particualry great TV. So let’s have a deeper look into it, shall we?

For Your Eyes Only Review

For Your Eyes Only

For Your Eyes Only is a odd Bond film, it begins and ends with extremely Roger Moore-era humour, but has a far more serious, gadget-free core story to it. That being said the story isn’t massively interesting, but hey-ho, can’t win them all, and the main story is better than the bizarre opening sequence… Anyway, let’s take a look!

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex Episodes 1 – 13 Review

 

GITS SAC P1

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex was one of the top anime shows of the mid-2000s, but how does it hold up today, over a decade later? Not to badly, as it turns out! Yes I was one of the people who spent nearly £100 on the 11 Blu-Ray boxset of the complete 50+ episode series and films (well, film really, I won’t be bothering to watch the OVAs that just recap the series…), so let’s take a look at the first 13, which are more stand alone than… erm, complex, I guess.

Runaways – Season 1 Overall Review

Runaways S1

Based on marketing and my vague knowledge of the original comic, I wasn’t sure I’d like Runaways that much, but I was happy to be wrong! The teen drama is actually toned down quite a bit, and more emphasis is put on the parents and their plight than the comics (again, from what I hear). All that and the lead characters themselves are all really well acted and realised! Who would have guessed? Let’s take a closer look at the debut season overall then, shall we?

DW: War of Gods Review

DW War of Gods

Year two of the Tenth Doctor’s Titan Comics run comes to a big conclusion as everyone fights against the recently resurrected Sutekh. It’s a fun story, surprisingly focusing more on some character development than big set pieces. This volume also comes with a stand-alone story from Year Three, just to fill out the numbers, which is obviously less spectacular… Anyway, let’s have an overall look, shall we?

Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ – Overall Review

Gundam ZZ Overall

The third series in Gundam history is definitely when it fell off of a cliff, thankfully redeemed by the movie “Char’s Counterattack”, released later. Double Zeta gets off to a poor start, then manages to pick up a bit before falling again, though thankfully never as low as it was to begin with. I commend Tomino for trying something different, but… yeah. Different isn’t always good! Anyway, let’s take an overall look at ZZ then!

Black Panther Review

Black Panther

Hopefully the last casualty of the “not being able to afford to go to the cinema” period, I finally saw Black Panther on blu-ray over the weekend. It certainly lived up to the hype, both being a really good film and the impressive cast, including a lead villain in an MCU film that’s actually good and well-fleshed out! Hooray! Let’s have a look…

Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ – Episodes 37 – 47 Review

Gundam ZZ P4

Double Zeta reaches its conclusion, and what an odd ride it’s been. After an extremely light-hearted first two quarters and a really downbeat third one, the fourth quarter of the show seemingly tries to balance the two, but doesn’t really succeed. Still, seeing Neo Zeon implode from within was at least fun to watch! So let’s take a look at how the series ends, shall we?
