“Doctor… Who? Pah! I am the Captain! Sherbet lemon? Now step into my wardrobe. What? Yes, of course it’s smaller on the inside you blithering idiot!”—The Captain!
“There’s Ed, Op Ed, Op, and then there’s this blog.”—The Captain!
“Well done son, keep it up!”—The Captain’s Mum
“People will think you’re a nerd.”—The Captain’s Dad
“I hate this!”—vox populi
“I don’t care.”—The Captain!
“Who the Hell is the Captain anyway?”—Roy Mathur
“The Captain is not an adventurer, rock star and supervillain with a penchant for G&Ts, C7H10N4O2 and insanely loud music. His exploits do not usually involve arriving just in time to save the multiverse (or thoroughly bugger it up) in a Vimana shaped like a wardrobe. And, contrary to the wanted posters, he is certainly not a multi-tentacled cyborg from the 27th dimension.”—Anonymous
“Finally an honest review…great!”—Shayne T. Wright

No time for podcasting this week, as I have a couple of passengers heading for Alderaan, but next week we’ll be talking about Guardians of the Galaxy. Huzzah! I still can’t believe the Wachowskis’ new flick Jupiter Rising is not … Continue reading
Months in advance of its DVD release, and an interminable time spent avoiding trailers, spoilers and reviews; I finally took myself down to budget day at the local flicks. All this, so that by the time you read this, you … Continue reading
Maleficent: Angelina. Horns. I, Frankenstein: Will either be brilliant or terrible, hard to tell, but here’s hoping… Seventh Son: Featuring another (RIPD) fine dialect choice from Jeff Bridges. Noah: Mmm, still the threat of Ray Winstone is enough to scare … Continue reading
So much for getting back into serious coding. After downloading the Android SDK, then compiling the sample app, the emulator hung…. and hung and… Now I suppose I should have persisted, but life’s finite and I got bored. I think … Continue reading
Big Nerdy Blockbusters Coming Your Way Soon: Thor: The Dark World & Kickass 2 (Restricted) #Trailers
Thor: The Dark World, UK release: 30 October 2013 Kickass 2, UK release: 16 August 2013
Teaser trailer with Jamie Foxx playing Maz Dillon, AKA Electro!
The latest in the on-going saga of Tony Stark: US-patriot, one-man US-foreign policy and US president-elect. Okay, I made that last bit up. I think. Ben Kinglsey’s Mandarin is fun and it’s actually an okay superhero film. I especially liked … Continue reading
I DO remember seeing this and thinking that the Hoff made a fairly credible Nick Fury (oh, just shut up).
What a tiring last couple of weeks it’s been. I finally recovered from two weeks of un-easily earned IT work up in a rather affluent part of the North (Chester, you know, where Hollyoaks is set, but not actually filmed, … Continue reading
#Comic #Book #Reviews: The #Question: Poisoned Ground, #Hellblazer: The Red Right Hand, #Moon #Knight: Vol 2
With a lack of much to do apart from applying for jobs and waiting for BT to send me a router, I made use of Redhill Public Library and borrowed some books. Here’s a quick review of a few trades … Continue reading
World War Z Iron Man 3
Yep, yesterday walked twice around the Trou aux Cerfs crater and today I managed three laps, but my knee is killing me. No one said “hi” despite (or perhaps because) of my superb Spiderman tee-shirt wrapped round the short, alluring, … Continue reading
These are the two Marvel pocket books that directly led to my life-long Spiderman obsession. They came into my possession magically around the age of seven or eight. I say “magically” because I cannot honestly remember how I got them. … Continue reading
Even more Comicon stuff. Marvel announced Guardians of the Galaxy (2014). Future superheroes in space sort of thing (see Marvel wiki). Makes me wonder/hope/pray that those in charge may just get round to making something like the first run of … Continue reading
Thoroughly enjoyed it. And, yes, it is amazing. Stellar cast, well acted; Andrew Garfield, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen and Sally Field are all excellent. CGI/SFX not overpowering or silly, good even in 2D. A brilliant reboot. Also, considering I know … Continue reading
Like Mister X‘s mumbled refrain, I’m having a little difficulty keeping up with the constant stream of geeky goodness. For some time now, other bloggers have been saying that shows aimed at nerds are the rule rather than the exception. … Continue reading
Rather religious theme this week with Norse gods, Satanists and the Devil. Avengers Assemble 3D– saw this a few days ago at the Apollo Cinema, Piccadilly Circus, London. Best line of the movie is uttered by the Hulk after he … Continue reading
I don’t care what people say, I’m looking forward to the new Spiderman movie (The Amazing Spiderman) coming out July 2012. I enjoyed Toby McGuire’s Spiderman and I think Andrew Garfield will do a bang-up job too. I think he … Continue reading
