More on that picture later…but now onto more pressing issues on my mind 🙂

It has been a busy July so far. I’ve seen a few films and been catching up on a lot of gaming. Plus, I have also been working away at my first James Bond review, Dr. No. As I mentioned in my James Bond blog a few weeks back, each Bond review would also have an accompanying ‘ultimate’ list which would allow me to compare all the Bond actors and films across the years.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014) REVIEW

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014) REVIEW

dawn-planet-apes

Director: Matt Reeves
Written By: Mark Bomback, Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver
Cast: Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell and Toby Kebbell

MILD PLOT SPOILERS AHEAD.

Plot: Taking place ten years after Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Caesar and his expanding nation of Apes have taken refuge in the Muir Woods just outside of San Francisco City. When a small group of humans show up hoping to restore power to the city via the use of a hydroelectric generator, tension is had and Caesar, with the upper hand, forbids the humans from entering the area ever again. However with the dam generator being the only hope for survival the humans have, Malcolm and his group re-enter the woods in the hopes of convincing Caesar they aren’t all bad and can be trusted. Soon, plotting begins on both ends to reclaim the lands and the war between humans and apes is brought to the forefront.

Review: First of all, I beg you, no, I plead with you to please go and watch Rise of the Planet of the Apes before watch Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. I don’t say that often to people, but it really is worth it for all the little minors things. Plus Rise was such a brilliant and unexpected film that deserves repeat viewing just to ease you into Dawn.

A sad time in a galaxy far far away….

It is a sad sad time in a galaxy far far away…

A_long_time_ago

Ever since Disney purchased the rights to LucasFilm (Star Wars and Indiana Jones), I’ve been a little bit worried about all the news and actions that have taken place. First of all we have The Clone Wars ripped away from us all. One of the best animated shows ever to be created was cancelled before it could end on its own. Then we find out Star Wars 1313 was cancelled midway through development. A Star Wars Darth Maul game also gone (concept art below). Truly a sad time for any Star Wars fan. Especially considering a few recent bits that have come to my attention recently.

Still Here

Usually I try and get a LEGO up every Sunday evening, but this week I’ve decided to take a little breather. You see, the LEGO movie is out in Australia in a few days. And I’ve made the decision not to watch any downloaded copies offered to me. I’m one of those people who actually loves the cinema experience and don’t like my movie watching fun ruined by a pirated copy.

So what I’m trying to say is, I’m still here. Hopefully I can have a review of Captain America The Winter Soldier and LEGO Movie up this weekend. I’ll just see how it all goes.

Also don’t think this is only going to be a LEGO review blog. I do intend to review tech and movies. And let’s not forget games. So many games. Since purchasing my PS4 a few months back, I’ve played some good, some bad and some utterly boring games. Not all on PS4 either.

Another review I’d love to begin publishing are comic reviews. You see, I read a few comics weekly and would love to bring my thoughts here, but a lot goes into a comic review. Most important of all is the fact I have to explain the backstory of the current comic storyline. Tough.

Either way, I’ll be bringing more and more as times go on. Like always, leave a comment with anything you’d like to say.
