And with a 'Dun Dun, Da Da Dun Dun, Da Da Dun Dun, Da Da Dun Dun' we're back.

A rather long 'Previously...' this time round, going all the way back to poor old Ned Stark's rather extreme migraine treatment back at the tail end of season 1. The reason for taking us back this far seems to be so we can make sense of why Charles Dance is melting down a big sword in order to make two new ones. A brief bit of dialogue between the now clean-shaven Jamie Lanister and his dear old dad reveals it's some kind of awesome steel, the name of which escapes me, but will probably prove to be a plot point later. It seems this season we're going to be seeing a bit more of Jamie's character now he's back home in King's Landing, but not as much of him as was exposed in season 1 since his sister...

After the almost pitch perfect performances of the preceding movies of Marvel's phase two, surely it's about time for a mis-step? Given that Captain America: The First Avenger was, in my humble opinion, one of the weaker phase one movies. I must admit that I went in to this movie prepared to be severely disappointed. However, I am pleased to report that this was very much not the case.

Given the frenetic pace of the action in the opening sequence, my first impression was that it was going to be a two hour all-out slugfest of a film which, while looking fabulous, would ultimately end up unsatisfying in terms of plot and character development. Imagine my surprise then as the pace of the film suddenly flips to addressing themes such as post traumatic stress, political intrigue...

Okay... Before you all hunt me down through my IP address and stab me, please know that I thoroughly enjoyed this film. I also love pretty much everything that Pegg/Frost/Wright have ever even sneezed on. So, please don't take the things I'm about to say as meaning that I think they are shit/should die/will never watch anything from them again. Because that is just not the case.

That being said, I humbly present my thoughts on The World's End:

I enjoyed it. There... I got that out of the way. Being who I am, I came out feeling that I really knew where the film was coming from, that they were making a valid point about getting older and that we don't have as much impact on people's lives as we would like to think. Until I thought about it a bit more... Then some bits...

After a whole day in bed variously sleeping and hacking up chunks of lung, I'm almost feeling human enough to give a brief account of our weekend away at the Sci-Fi Weekender 4.

For those of you who have never heard of, or experienced it, the SFW takes over a holiday camp in North Wales for a weekend, fills it with around 4000 rabid sci-fi fans and puts on a show of authors, actors, musicians, comedians and much more for their entertainment. We had our first experience of it last year when a couple of our friends won tickets and invited us along. Despite the run-down Pontin's apartments, poisonous canteen and the 10 hour journey home due to our car breaking down in the Apocalyptic Blizzard of January 2012, we decided to go along again this year and take our daughter along with...
