There are very few movies I will go an see on the day of release, currently, only Star Wars and certain Marvel are regulars on my, need to watch as soon as I can, list. So I saw Avengers Infinity War on the day of release and it was AMAZING. Of course, this isn’t a spoiler post because I’m not a total Asshat.

This film, wow, what an emotional rollercoaster. I’m not going to try and list all of the characters in this movie but, honestly, I was a little nervous as to how this was going to work. I really wanted this to be good but what it too ambitious? In short, no. The writers of this movie need all of the awards, every single one. This was a masterpiece.

One of the things I love the most about Marvel is the humor injected throughout. I laughed so hard and the groups that the superheroes were put in to follow their stories. These egos put together and having to deal with this other superhero muscling in on their turf. The results were brilliant and so well put together.

By the end I had felt every emotion you could feel, I’d laughed, I’d cried, I’d gasped. These were characters I’d grown to love, I’m not a super fan of Marvel films, not the early ones but I still loved the majority of these characters so much. And I cried, I cried so much during but not in a silly way, the film wasn’t cheesy.

So, do I even need to tell you to go see this film? GO AND BOOK TICKETS NOW! The day after I was ready to see it again and, money permitting, I will. I’m already impatient for the next Avengers movie after the ending that completely shocked me. What are you waiting for? Go now!

Seen it already? Let me know what you thought in the comments below!

Hello everyone!

Sorry I’ve dropped off the radar for the last few days with my back protesting and a low mood creeping in I’ve just found myself blankly staring at my laptop not knowing what to write. Instead I’ve surrounded myself with some good company when I could and I think I’m slowly breaking out of this low and through it I’ve found a strange new love.

Now I’ve been friends with Joe for years, back when we were both super anxious 18 year olds about to start uni. Ever since I’ve known him Joe’s been heavily into his comic books. When I was younger I got hold of a copy of Spider Girl and loved it but with no comic book shops near me I completely forgot about it. Since then a new comic book shop has opened in Kingston town centre and, of course, Joe has gone and landed himself a job there. After a while of me visiting I felt like I should probably buy something and try to understand what makes comic books so great.

I feel like I shouldn’t have made that decision because my bank account really hates it. Firstly it was getting into the Spider Gwen then the Gotham Academy series, which I’m now obsessed with. Now it’s evolved into me having a list to buy as well as buying three Superman and Wonderwoman comicbooks, Thor Goddess of Thunder, the two Gotham Academy issues I was missing and two indie Graphic Novels. Basically Joe is not only a great friend but also a great salesman. I’ve spent a good few hours pouring over them and I have to say he’s very good with recommendations.

I’ve met so many different people in the past few weeks since I started reading, mostly guys and they’ve all been so nice! This isn’t like my beloved novels, it’s nice to have something to just flick through, look at some nice art and something to look forward to monthly rather than once or twice a year. Don’t worry, nothing will be replacing the love I have for books but it’s another way of appreciating literature in a more visual way.

So that’s what I’ve been up to for the past few days, I have another thing to explore and get excited about and I’m pleased to report there are loads of awesome female heroes in comic books, much more than people would have you believe. There’s the ‘female versions’ of the well known super heroes but they’re not just rip offs they all have their own pretty awesome characters and ideas, Godess Thor is one of my personal favourites after reading today.

I’d love to know if you guys are into comic books and have any recommendations for me! I love a kick ass female or two in a comic book so if that gives you any ideas! Also if you’re in Kingston make sure you find Piranha Comics on one of the little side streets near Kingston Markets, it’s a great shop and all of the staff are great! I really love the way that they’ll sit and talk with you and actually care about the recommendations they give you, basically they’re one of my absolute favourite shops in Kingston now.
