Reasons to Be Cheerful – Agent Carter | Hellcat | American Housewife

Let’s get real, 2016 hasn’t gotten off to the flying start we’d all hoped for. If you’ve had a spectacular couple of weeks, more power to ya, but we’ve taken a few collective bashes over the past few days. Several of my favourite people have had gloomy starts to the year and I’m sure you’ll all agree with me when I make liberal use of the caps lock key and say, “FUCK CANCER!” Still, there are some reasons to keep … Read More

Ant-Man: The Film With No ‘Little Man Syndrome’ in Sight

Ant-Man has come in for less promotional fanfare than its Phase Two stablemates. There were no midnight screenings with bleary-eyed fanatics stumbling home at 3am in a haze of explosive happiness. Do that with every film you make and it becomes less of a spectacle. As the result of this more under-the-radar release, at least, about as under-the-radar as Marvel gets, it would be easy for Ant-Man to end up with ‘Little Man Syndrome’ and overly puff out its story … Read More

Comic Block Unboxing June 2015

Today I’m unboxing the Comic Block subscription box offering from June 2015. All the comics were ones I’m really looking forward to diving into this month. Have a watch of the video and let me know what you’d do about my Tank Girl dilemma. Close-up photos now appear in the video itself, if you’re looking for them. Interested in the Ghostbusters III column I mentioned in the video? You can find that here. Enjoy! Follow me on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to keep up … Read More

Marvel Collector Corps Ant-Man Unboxing | June – July 2015

It’s time to dip into the second offering from the Marvel Collector Corps. This time they’re linking up with the new Ant-Man movie released next month and it’s a mixed bag of practical errors along with some great products. Let me know what you think of what was in the box. I’m intrigued to know how it’s going down with people. I also apologise in advance for my shameless Paul Rudd lust. I have no defence. There are close up … Read More

First Comic Block Unboxing May 2015

I hadn’t intended on posting another video this early in the week, but almost immediately after pushing Publish on the May Arcade Block unboxing video I found the new Comic Block box had been delivered. So, here we are again. I didn’t even give you enough time to miss my face! This Comic Block unboxing isn’t just my first, but it’s the company’s maiden comic-based box. Have a watch of the video and let me know what you think of … Read More

Marvel Collector Corps Unboxing April to May 2015

I feel like I’ve been waiting forever to do this Marvel Collector Corps unboxing, but it’s finally launched and was worth the wait. Have a watch of the video to see what I thought of everything inside, to listen to me talk about the problems women have with t-shirts and to generally absorb some of my Marvel love. There’s a gallery of close-up photos  of everything that was in the box below should you want to inspect them properly. Follow … Read More

Avengers: Age of Ultron, High Culture Snobbery & Indulging What You Love

I regularly remind people, including myself, that it’s alright not to like things other people love. It’s okay if something that’s insanely popular does nothing for you. There’s nothing wrong with you. If the new incarnation of Taylor Swift that’s got the whole world falling at her feet makes you recoil instead of leaving you wanting to lick her shoes, no problem. If not a single kick of last year’s football World Cup made you tingle, that’s allowed. When you … Read More
