    ClownsHands up who’s scared of clowns?! With the fear so wide spread and even more people who just simply do not like them, clowns make for the best Halloween costumes. They don’t even have to be gory or twisted, sometimes the more cheerful, the more terrified people are! Clowns Are Scary! When you look back at photographs and paintings of vintage clowns, it is not hard to see where the deep rooted fear of these cheerful circus performers came from.

Star Trek Boldly going where no one has gone before, Star Trek opened up a world of imagination for children and adults alike back in 1966 when the first series aired on television in America. William Shatner as the dashing Captain T. Kirk, Leonard Nemoy as Spock and DeForest Kelley as Leonard McCoy was a dream team aboard The USS Enterprise. Sci-Fi fans could not get enough and it soon became a cult classic and still is to this day. With modern re-makes and re-imaginings there is no end to Star Trek’s popularity. Currently there have been 13 movies and 7 different television series, which shows just how much there is to explore within this franchise! Continue reading →

  19. Suicide Squad Is Here!

    Suicide Squad Is Here!
    Suicide SquadOk, so let’s talk about Suicide Squad... It may not have received glowing reviews from all of the critics, but that hasn’t stopped people flocking in their thousands to catch a glimpse of DC’s best bad guys! The Stars We’ve known the stars of this movie for a long time now and marketing weren’t shy with the teasers and clips. Margot Robbie was the perfect blend of sexy and kooky for her role as Harley Quinn. It will definitely be one of the most iconic roles of her career and we hope to see more of her in upcoming DC movies! Will Smith will always be a great action hero and Suicide Squad proves he’s still got it. He’s stern, strong and the perfect person to play Dead Shot. He also delivers one of the best comedy lines of the movie when referring to the Doomsday machine as a “swirling ring of trash”. Apart from little snippet’s and stills, we didn’t get to see too much of Jared Leto’s Joker. He definitely made this role his own with sarcasm and psychosis that rivals Jack Nicholson’s rendition. Heath Ledger did leave some very big shoes to fill and we’re not sold that Leto was the man to do it. Continue reading →
