    Star Trek Turns 50!
    Star TrekStar Trek has given us so much in the last half century so it’s only fair that we celebrate the franchise in style! Here in the UK, the best place to go is going to be the NEC in Birmingham for your Trekkie fix! 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 →

Well in 1995 two men with little to no skill in racquetball began to encourage each other by shouting piratey encouragement and mild insults during a game. They enjoyed it so much that they decided then and there that there should be a holiday where everyone has to talk like a pirate! For seven years John Baur and Mark Summers celebrated their holiday between themselves and friends, until they chanced upon the e-mail of a man they wanted to be the spokesman for their event, Dave Barry. In 2002, after a cheeky e-mail correspondence, they manage to get him hooked! After having their event published by the well known columnist, their event took off! Continue reading →

  11. 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 →

    Ghostbusters Are Getting a Makeover!
    So far the new Ghostbusters movie has received a very mixed reception of praise and criticism. The first movie trailer was Ghostbustersnotoriously the most disliked YouTube has seen! We’ll just have to wait until this Friday (15th July) to find out for ourselves if this will be a huge hit or a massive flop! Ghostbusters In 1984 the world was given the gift of Ghostbusters with the original movie starring acting legends Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Sigourney Weaver. The Ray Parker Jr. theme tune “Who You Gonna Call?” was catchy, the acting was comical and the action was spot on. What more could you want? Well a sequel of course! While it wasn’t as big as the original, it still received high praise. Since then, it has kept a strong cult following and merchandise has always been available with that iconic logo. Now we’re getting a re-boot... An all female one at that! Continue reading →
