Film Review: Iron Man 3

Robert Downey Jr, appealing as ever, returns as Tony Stark. The playboy, millionaire, engineering genius saving the world in his Iron suit.
Directed by Shane Black rather than Jon Favreau who directed 1 and 2 the film did have a noticeably different feel to it.

Tale of Gamers - Round 2, Necron Immortals and Night Scythe Complete.

Put the final touches to this segments Necrons. 
I have painted 5 Immortals and their Night Scythe.

Film Review: Joss Whedon's Much Ado About Nothing

Ever find yourself with a few weeks to spare whilst making a blockbuster movie? No, me neither, but that's exactly the situation Joss Whedon found himself in, with a fortnight break whilst completing the Avengers in 2011.
In that time Whedon gathered together his friends to form a cast, that to most would seem unattainable, and shot his own film adaptation of Shakespeare's 'Much Ado About Nothing'. The entire feature was filmed in secret in just 12 days at Whedon's home in Santa Monica.

Film Review: Oblivion(2013)

Oblivion is based off a graphic novel of the same name written by Joseph Kosinki. It's a science fiction film that pays homage to Sci-Fi from the 70's. Co-written, produced and directed by Kosinki himself, the film throws you in to the aftermath of a war that left Earth all but lifeless. With the only humans seemingly left on Earth being the "mandatory memory wiped" Jack Harper(Tom Cruise), a drone technician and Victoria Olsen(Andrea Riseborough), Jacks controller, who form "the mop up crew".
Fighting off the remnants of the invading army and repairing the drones that defend huge water pumping platforms are how they spend their days. The platforms job being to turn Earth's salt water in to fusion material for humanities new colony on Titan, Jupiter's largest moon.
