The Fifth Year: How to Get Away with Meh

A Wanker’s Literary Reaction: Justice League Comic-Con Trailer

IT’S TIME for another much-anticipated chance to suffer through force myself through agonisingly dissonance to watch enjoy the latest trailer for Zack Snyder’s newest release, Justice League! In case you missed it, here’s the writing I’ve done about the other DCEU movies, and without further ado, let’s get into this!

Movie Review: Dunkirk

All genres morph and change in tone and attitude based on the era they happen to be made in. With almost every nation having it’s own complex and constantly evolving relationship to militarism, war, and how those things fit with the construction of their respective national identities, the war movie genre is one of the best ways to translate the attitude of the era they’re made in.

Operation Quit Smoking, Part Five


I was out yesterday, after a full month without a cigarette, with my best friend, and I may…have accidentally smoked.

Who Should Be The Next Doctor?

Yes, two Doctor Who posts in a week and the show hasn’t been on in a fortnight, but forgive me – the new sodding Doctor is going to be announced tomorrow! So, in a list that’ll be rendered pointless and probably make me look like a fool in less than twenty-four hours, let’s talk about who we want as the next Doctor!

Doggett, Coates, and the “Perfect” Rape Victim

So, I recently finished up the latest season of Orange is the New Black (yeah, yeah, I know, slow on the uptake). I thought it was pretty good overall, but one subplot in particular seems to have caught the eye of a lot of reviewers and viewers alike is the one revolving around Tiffany Doggett and Charlie Coates.

Operation Quit Smoking, Part Three

It’s been just over two weeks since I last had a cigarette, and I’m finding myself turning to other things to keep myself occupied.


This has been my week; coffee and (not) cigarettes.

Fifty Shades Freed: Chapter Sixteen

In a few days time, I will be heading ACROSS the COUNTRY to visit my darling best friend ELLIE for her birthday. In penance for the carnage that shall ensue, I figured it was best to get another recap up before I’m out of commission for the rest of the week in horror and disgust of the things I said and did on that fateful day. To the recap!

Doctor Who: Trying Adventure Rounds Down Intermittent Season

Well, another season done with.

Before we get into the discussion of the season as a whole, I suppose we should talk about this week’s episode, The Doctor Falls. The Doctor ends up chased out of a city overrun with cybermen with Nardole, CyBillman, and the two Masters in tow, and winds up fighting to keep a small farming village safe from the oncoming cyber-army. It was, in many ways, an episode of goodbyes – a goodbye not just to characters, but to Moffat’s tenure over the show as a whole (yes, his kiss-off will be the Christmas special in December, but this is the last season of the show he’ll run).
