Just like I did.

Remember the promotion Nintendo ran at the beginning of the year, where (after buying a WiiU) any purchase from their eShop would earn you points? Well, if you have been happily buying the odd title for it, there’s a good chance you have some eShop credit waiting for you.

But you have to hurry a little.

Agent Carter

Marvels next foray into television is an 8 episode mini series about Agent Peggy Carter, master spy, founding member of S.H.I.E.L.D., and generally awesome character.

The series is set in the 40s, post WW2 and post Captain America becoming a capsicle and will depict the early days of the spy organization.

And it has a totally awesome poster!

Agent Carter

Seriously, how awesome is that? I love the retro style.

Agent Carter debuts in January and will complete its full run before Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Returns in March. I, for one, am looking forward to it.

The Hunger Games: Mocking Jay

It’s December which means I have pretty much exactly no time to do anything lately but that hasn’t stopped me from seeing a couple of movies, just from writing them up in a timely manner.

But since I’ve seen so many you’re gonna get the shortest version of each of these reviews that I can muster.

Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Mix Vol. 1 Is Up For A Grammy

Posted by Matthew on December 06, 2014
News / Comments Off

Guardians of the Galaxy Soundtrack

You’re already aware that Awesome Mix Vol. 1 is the best sound track this year but just in case you were unsure it’s been nominated for a Grammy award in the Best Compilation Soundtrack For Visual Media category, which is category 58 out of 10,006.

To be fair it does have some good competition in the American Hustle soundtrack and Wolf of Wall Street soundtrack as they’re both chock full of good tunes however neither they nor Frozen or Get On Up speak to the story of the film or the hearts and minds of the audience in quite the same way.

The 57th Grammy Awards are being held in LA on the 8th of February.

Jared Leto is The Joker In Suicide Squad

Posted by Simon on December 03, 2014
News / Comments Off

Suicide Squad

With (our good friend) Tom Hardy as Rick Flagg, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, and Will Smith – yes, that Will Smith – as Deadshot.

As reported by io9, this casting finally ends the rumours as to who will play the collection of supervillains. Suicide Squad sees them forced to come together to carry out the government’s dirty work, so it could work really well. Some interesting casting choices there – I’ve no idea who Rick Flagg is but Tom Hardy is always good value, and Margot Robbie playing Harley Quinn is a fantastic choice. Also, my countdown timer for when Will Smith pulls out has started. However, it’s Jared Leto‘s takeover of the Joker role that will have the most focus. He certain has the intensity, but does he have the dark humour?

We’ll find out…in 2016.

Final request, though: CAN HOLLYWOOD PLEASE STOP CASTING JAI COURTNEY. IN ANYTHING. EVER. Ahem. Thanks.
